The Deck of Fate is here! If dice aren't your thing but you still like randomness aplenty, the Deck of Fate can stand in for the dice in any Fate or Fudge based RPG.
WHAT'S IN HERE?
The Deck of Fate is actually three decks in one! You can combine them together if it suits your play goals, or use them separately for a variety of purposes. In this package you'll find:
  •  A 6-card "Accelerated Arcana" deck: Six inspirational images, one for each of the approaches from Fate Accelerated.
  • A 9-card "Core Arcana" deck: Nine inspirational images covering nine concepts, with "aspect style" positive and negative takes on each.
  • An 81-card "Dice Card" deck: Shuffle this deck and draw to simulate the toss of four Fate Dice. Inspirational phrases are found on each card to give you cues on how to interpret the result.
SECRETS OF THE DECK OF FATE
  • The backs of the cards can double as fate point counters.
  • You can shuffle the Accelerated Arcana and draw from it to randomly determine your approaches for your Fate Accelerated character: first draw is the +3, etc.
  • Draw from the deck to randomly determine a character's aspect—or at least get a good starting-point. This works especially well with the Core Arcana, but can work with the Dice Cards as well.
  • If you're not using one or both of the Arcana decks, consider using a card per player as an initiative tracker: show the art when you haven't taken your turn yet, flip it over when you have.
  • Each Dice Card has a set of symbols on it: A mix of one to three Moons and/or Suns, or an Eclipse. Eclipses are found on unique cards. More symbols are found on cards where the dice combination is rarer. 
  • You can tie "variable effect" stunts into these symbols; +1 per Moon or Sun, for example, with a special big effect when an Eclipse is drawn.

Please note: As with all card decks on DriveThruCards, the Deck of Fate does not include a box. Make sure to add the larger crystal box to your order when you're checking out if you need your Deck to show up with one. :)

Sadly the packaging on these card is terrible and a handful of my Arcana have some mildly creased corners. It's not terrible, but something to be aware of for people who worry about such things.

You should certainly contact DriveThru customer support if you're not happy with the condition in which the cards arrived.

I was surprised when my cards arrived without a box. I suppose this makes sense with the number of cards, and the financial reality of print on demand. However, I would have appreciated some indication in the description that they would be shipped boxless.

I'm very happy with the cards. Now, I just have to go find one of those CCG stores to acquire a suitable box.

All the products on DriveThruCards are shipped boxless (they offer a couple crystal boxes as add-ons during the check-out process), so we hadn't thought to speak to that as though it were a specific, different feature of our specific product. Good note though!

It strikes me that a GM with a Deck of Fate could LARP Fate games with no changes to the rules. Just hand out poker chips or equivalent for Fate Points (to save on people bending your cards).

Anyone know what size FFG card sleeves would fit these?

These are standard playing card (poker) sized: 2.5" wide, 3.5" tall. Same sleeves that'd fit Magic cards or similar should fit these.

The standard sleves work great. However, they won't fit in the add-on box offered here after you stick them in sleves. For me I just now use the box to hold my fate point tokens anyway.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
