Terms

Skill Cards and System Cards are terms from the previous games. In Hopeless Masquerade's manual file they are called Skills (for Skill Cards), Spell Cards, Last Words and Items (for System cards). I suggest using these terms in Hopeless Masquerade. -- Higan (talk) 15:48, 30 December 2012 (EST)

Fixed. Files have been renamed, templates have been adjusted, and the appropriate pages have been edited. Best to do it now before it gets out of hand. K (talk) 16:46, 30 December 2012 (EST)

The part of the name of spell cards "xx sign"... "符" isn't "sign, symbol, mark" or something like "号", but "card, charm, amulet" or something like "". That is, I think, a very important mistranslation surviving somehow very long. --masuo64 Talk 00:00, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

"Sign" is a very flexible term, and I think it is very appropriate. The important part isn't what the sign is printed on (a card, a charm, an amulet), but the actual sign itself. "Sign" also has personal connotations (such as in "signature") which shows how each card reflects the user's individuality. Also, I remember seeing somewhere that not all spell cards are actually written on cards/amulets, so something like "Love Card" might not be entirely accurate, but "Love Sign" is more plausible and general.
