Whimsy Cards

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $4.99

Whimsy Cards are a narrative accessory that allow players to add to the story of any tabletop roleplaying game. Distribute one card to each player at the start of play. Players may use them at any time by revealing a card and describing how the current scene or situation changes as a result. The Gamemaster is allowed to suggest modifications and even veto the use of the card, but he or she is encouraged to allow as much of the player's input as possible. The GM may then give the player another card now, or at the end of the current scene.

Please enjoy this free Print-and-Play version of a new layout of the original Whimsy Cards first produced by Lion Rampant over 25 years ago!

Are these a rework of Whimsy Cards, or Storypath cards? I've been looking for storypath cards for years both Horror and Intrigue. I left both sets at home, when i moved out of the U.S.
These cards in the file here do not have numbers or pictures. Additionally, there is no rules sheet as was included with Storypath cards to show how to use them.

These are the original Whimsy Cards, just with new graphics. They're posted here as a sample of the cards offered in a current Kickstarter project for new editions of the Storypath Cards (and two new decks). The project runs through April 14, 2016. A more complete product with rules sheet will be posted after the project.

I was just thinking about you guys and whatever happened to you!

Now, if I could just find out what happened to the guys called the Companions... they had a great approach to scene design!

A poorly chopped address, though, as "tabletop" was lopped off...!

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.
