I've been extremely busy with my open source project of direct democracy online platform Demodyne (beta now launched in my home country France, and soon to be in the State of New York and a couple EU countries).
Plus buying a house needing some repairs, and my wedding coming up August 20 ))
But now things are clearing up a bit, so I'd like to offer again my help if needed for:
card design: mechanics, flavour
I strongly support the idea of working on a small batch of cards to begin with; just shoot the theme and I'll submit proposals.
Not sure if this has been settled already by the core team, but if not: for the theme, I'm "voting" for Orient Express ))
