Tabula Rasa Vault is however putting the cards on the table with something quite clever. Right now you can go over to their website, hit their Player Database, and set up your very own virtual Tabula Rasa trading card. Players can enter information about their soldier - including a name, background and picture - and it will be formated to look like a trading card.
TR Vault says they'll be using this database for future contests, plus they'll be picking soldiers each week for a spotlight feature called "AFS soldier of the week." That's pretty frakkin' cool! I'm adding mine when I get home.
