@plaguescape I re-iterate my idea of having 3 mining tiers. One for "younger than teenagers" for your Pokemon/Yugi-Oh type of art, more cute. One for teenage to 18/adult, with cool style art, which probably would be the main bulk of it. One for 18+ for more controversial art (nudity, niche, etc.). Miners would then be able to choose which tier they want to mine or specialise into. That could also make it interesting or an incentive for miners to try different or less popular tiers, due to the rarity.

@Grimjack I will absolutely respect any decision the Volition team makes with respect to guidelines. I also agree with you that as an initial step, it would be best to be a bit more restrictive to avoid being stigmatised and maybe once it is consolidated, it can open the door to more adult-themed sets with some sort of control system or new guidelines.
I wonder how many of the original The Spoils cards would get flagged as inappropriate by this system.
It would be good to know the target audience for Volition. Would 10-year olds play it? Where would we set the limit, 15 and up? And I mean limit just for the art/content guidelines.
On the other hand, I am quite an open-minded person and I would not mind a more adult oriented artwork. One of the key things about the openness of this system should be how free it is, so I would not want to see too many restrictions. I just wonder if there could be a way of segregating the adult content from the "child-friendly" one. Maybe it could be by sets? Some sets could be more "cute" or entirely targeted at a younger population and other sets could be for adults only? So when you mine them, you could have some age-restriction on the mining act?
Like having three mining levels: below 15s miners, 15 to 18 miners, 18+ miners?
RE: Introduce yourself here!
Hi, I'm Carlos and I have played MtG, Battletech and The Spoils since they came out. I am also a boardgame designer and crypto enthusiast. I organise tournaments for The Spoils here in Surrey (England) and I love The Spoils and gaming in general.
Well, I also play Pokemon TCG with my son (in exchange he pays Spoils with me). He is 7 years old.
