Looking good, TW.

Do you have a particular mini in mind or is this another generic human male (like Samuel Sullivan)?

Here's a draft of the card with Silver Key copied from TW's post

I used Samuel Sullivan's hit zone for now. The image is from a movie (?) poster.

Card looks great barring TW picking a mini. I'm guessing 100-125 on points.

At the end of the following, control of the figure and its Army Card returns to the player who controlled it before The Silver Key was used. Place Randolph Carter in your start zone. If there are no available spaces in your start zone or if the chosen figure is destroyed while using The Silver Key, destroy Randolph Carter. When moving with The Silver Key, Randolph Carter does not take any leaving engagement attacks.

Fixed some capitalization and made some other assorted edits. Any other edits needed?

Great job on the card! I would use the Skids O'Toole mini from Fantasy Flight.

Edit: As for the edits above, I would leave "on Randolph Carter's Army Card," to copy the precedent of Evar Scarcarver and Siege.

Still need to keep the part about the 'X' order marker still being on the card, as it can be removed as part of a player's turn (Silver Surfer, for example).

Also, just wanting to think it through - what happens if a figure that has RC's 'X' gets mind-shackled before the end of the round?

As I see it, RC's owner would still get the figure, but it would be returned to the mind shackler at the end of the next round. Is that how others would play it?

I would say, "control of the Hero and the Army Card returns to the player who last controlled the Hero."

Thanks, jc. Yes, we had a great time. We were in a cabin in the Smokies and the kids had a blast hiking and swimming! We also caught a few shows in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. My son loved Dixie Stampede. Thanks for asking.
