Quick Note - Another Card Test and a New Monster for S&W

With the print version of the Swords & Wizardry version of Assault on the Southern Horn underway and the battle map turning out to be awesome and released to the public I turn to my next Assault add-on. Thoughts?

Front
Back

 The Creature Card pack will have around 20 to 25 cards featuring the creatures and a few NPCs from the adventure. The cards feature full stats for each monster as well as a picture. Unlike the previous cards I showed for another project this card shows the hit dice in the blue orb and a recommended HP in the main stat block.

I am hoping to have these up and running before the next MEPAcon and gauge interest to see if a certain Kickstarter to begin soon could use an add-on.

So what does everyone think of the new design for these over the other ones?

The Teind

The Au-Sidhe looked upon Merric with glee as the poor mortal stumbled to a stop mere inches from the light bridge's edge. The tall, lithe High Sidhe extended her hand, her melodious voice ringing in Merric's mind "The price to be paid." Merric shook his head, he could not pay the toll and had hoped to sneak across the bridge. The Sidhe's smile grew as Merric felt the pain rushes through his body.  

Type: Mortal, Fae-Touched
Hit Dice: B (1d6)
Armor Class: 6[14]
Attacks: Shocking Touch(1d6 lightning damage + Paralysis(Save Negates))
Saving Throw: 17
Special: Paralyis, Immune to non-magic weapons, skip step
Move: 12
Alignment: Neutral
Challenge Level/XP: 2/30
Special Abilities
Paralysis - On a successful attack the target must succeed a save or suffer paralysis for 2d6 rounds.
Skip Step - Every five feet the Teind vanishes from the mortal realms for five feet before returning to the mortal realm.
Background
The Teind are mortals who attempted to cross Fae controlled locations (either in the Mortal or Fae realms) without paying whatever toll required of them by the Sidhe. Each Teind appears different from the last, the bodies and minds of the mortal being warped and changed to fit with whatever Fae they owe.

    1. Thanks! I wasn't sure if I went a bit overboard with the art elements.
