Playing cards in PDF?

Can anyone point me at software or templates for designing playing cards in PDF format?

I'm thinking about putting a story telling card game into Gandhi's Angels; what I think I want to make is a pack or two of fairly standard cards with the corner numbers / symbols as a normal pack, but some text replacing the rest of the symbols. Something like this:


"The fate of
the world is
in your hands"




But I'd want the corner symbols to be hearts, clubs, etc. as a normal pack, proper backs, etc.

Top Ten Again

The Original Flatland Role Playing Game has just made it into e23's top ten for the last 30 days, in equal last place with Elvis: the Legendary Tours. Hopefully it's going to climb higher, and more sales and a few reviews and ratings would help that, of course. Since this is a charity project I'm especially keen to see it do well.

So far everything I've sold via e23 has made it into their top ten, which I think is pretty good going. Diana: Warrior Princess even went back into the charts for a few days, piggy-backing on Elvis's new players. I think I may put a free PDF version of Forgotten Futures on their site if they'll let me, it ought to introduce a few new players to the game.
