Hebime Posted October 25, 2009 Share Posted October 25, 2009 (edited) Howdy folks!When I first became aware of the Macross Crusade trading card game(because of the promo card in Macross Chronicle) I searched for all the info I could find.I found a few posts in English(including one or two here...), most of which said 'feh, trading card games are teh sux' or 'too bad it will never be released in English'So I have no idea if any of you are at all interested, but I have translated the game's rulebook and all of the cards.I am a huge Macross fan, and I used to play lots of trading card games back in the day so I decided to take up the challenge of learning the game.Once I had it down I figured I would try to share what I have learned.You can download the English language rulebook (2.32MB PDF) here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/apd79nkg0897g3p/Crusade_System_Rulebook_1.4.pdf.The card translations are listed over at Gundam War Central. Macross Crusade is a stand alone set of Sunrise Crusade(based on anime produced by Bandai's Sunrise Animation) and Sunrise Crusade is a modified version of the Gundam War game(which is itself a clone of Magic the Gathering tweaked for mecha combat).Set 1- Voices Dashing Through the GalaxySet 2- Victory Song of Sky and FireIf you have been at all curious about Macross Crusade, or have purchased some cards out of curiosity as a Macross collector, now you can put your cards to use and and pummel your friends Macross style!My next project will be to create a MC Recognition Manual, pairing pics of the cards from the internet with my translations in order to help you learn the cards by sight instead of having go to leafing through pages of text while you play.(The cards won't be scanlated, just a pic of the Japanese card with translation text beneath)The game is a lot of fun, and its great to be able to play with all my favorite characters and mecha.So what are you waiting for? Download the rules and check it out.If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.I know that the cards are available by mail order in the States, I have been in contact with two players in America.The next set, The Best of F, comes out in December. It is a reprint set comprised of the best Macross Frontier cards to tie in to the Macross Frontier movie. (Yeah I know, a reprint set after only 2 sets? That's movie merchandising for you!)PS- If you are in the Osaka/Kansai area, drop me a PM, we can get together and I can teach you how to play!
