Dungeon Discoveries random card decks are a new product nearing completion here at LoreSmyth – and you can pre-order now. Dungeon Discoveries are random card decks that provide a fun, easy way to create immersive details on the spot. They are system neutral to fit any game and any situation. They offer high re-usability in the way you can combine entries from the top half of the card to the bottom. The results can be minute, surprising, cryptic and even humorous. Each deck contains 50 cards, which our uber wizzkids have calculated to be more than 50.000 possible results.
You Find Nothing – Will NO GM say ever again
We currently have two debut decks to pilot this new product: Fumbled Searches and Curious Treasure. Fumbled Searches is there for the GM when your player rolls that dreaded Nat 1 in perception or investigation checks. Instead of saying, “You find nothing,” draw a card and announce: “Looking through the room you find some old tattered trousers.” – OR – “You discover some odd chalk markings on a stone in the floor”. Perfect for bringing in a new level of detail. Now players also have something to think about. I rolled poorly but still found something. Could it be important? Should I investigate further?
Interesting objects of value
Curious Treasure takes the chance to add depth and interest in the form of strange objects for your players to find in their adventures. Instead of going the usual routes and finding gold or magical items, Curious Treasures brings in surprising items/treasure/artful objects that players might want to hold on to as lucky charms or collectibles. Or perhaps they’ve finished a quest for an NPC, and are rewarded with a peculiar item. The possibilities are almost endless and include: A masterwork pear-wood lute, an obsidian pendant, and a rune scripted mace. All it needs now is your adventures to hold them!
The fun part about these decks is the replay value. Where most random decks feature one entry per card, you quickly pull the same result or have seen it all. With our card design, you can combine any entry from the tom and bottom half to create a unique result. And they don’t have to be in order. For example, with the images above you could make:
- torn and faded pocket diary
- torn and faded maid’s journal
- bent and scratched pocket diary
- and so on.
Some results may be (unintentionally) funny, which could be perfect for when game night runs long and everyone needs a lighthearted moment.
SO! We love to hear what you think, and again pre-order is now open for the first two decks!
