Rob is working on an authoring kit. As soon as he gets back from a tradeshow he
is attending this weekend, I am sure he can give you some details such as
expected release.

However, unlike AB, it really is not that difficult to make data files for a
CCG. Just take a look at some of the other data files for ideas.

It can be somewhat time consuming to enter all the cards if the game gets very
large, so I tend to put together some VBA code to turn the data in XL
worksheets into the data for CV. Using XL lets me massage the data as I need to
while making sure it all gets entered (I can sort on various fields, for
instance). It also means that I can carry my development environement between
any machines that have XL loaded on them.
