Welcome to the Guardians CCG Page

This is a site dedicated to the Guardians collectible card game released by FPG in the mid '90s. This was a great game featuring beautiful artwork and a complex battle system. The game is now out of print and some cards are extremely difficult to find.

Here you will find alternate rules and game mods (including solo play), homebrew cards, and links to other Guardians sites.

C.J. Burke's .sig card #94: Cranston, Overlord of Limbo

So I got snow as predicted, and lost my internet as predicted. I even lost power for 2 hours, and it's a balmy 13 degrees outside right now. Still, I endure! My signal is back enough to get this post up. I had 2 very different images for this artwork, one from Ploog and one from Whelan. The Ploog fit the name Cranston but not the Overlord of Limbo or the card text. The Whelan fits the Overlord of Limbo and the card text but not the name Cranston. In the end I went with Whelan for the card text and Overlord title, plus the art is so cool! I'm pretty sure C.J.'s vision of the card art was probably different, but it is becoming really tough to find appropriate artwork from the original artists, it's just not out there. This will have to do...

He could look like a Cranston. :)
