Pulp Alley character cards

'We are nostalgic for the old and the analog'

Despite the many and various joys of the digital age for this aged researcher, one cannot help but feel nostalgic for the intensely tactile experience of searching the card file catalogue in a library. The feel, the smell, the frustration of the missing card!

As my first Pulp Alley leagues are nearly off the painting table, my mind has turned to charter cards and league rosters! While searching for images that could be used for the card, I happened across this groovy Catalogue Card Generator created by John Blyberg.

With very little effort, some 'atmospheric' charter cards can be pieced together (the photo is added later by me). These are two of the League Leaders for my upcoming Pulp Alley adventure – 'On to Port Said!'


  1. That link is a nice find. I bought Pulp Alley yesterday and need a character reference. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks AJ - glad you like it. I hope to print these off onto card to give them the right feel. Good to hear you are getting into Pulp Alley - I've yet to have my first game but am getting there. Just designing the first scenario. Looks like a load of fun. Cheers Alan

  3. Hi Dave, was a long time ago now, I believe I copied it into PowerPoint and copied the photon on top
