Monsters Deck 2

Selected Option:

Monsters Deck is a collection of 25 tarot-sized cards, each with a monster for Four Against Darkness.

"Monsters Deck - 2" contains all the classic monsters from the core rulebook adapted for all levels with the Highest Character Level mechanic (HCL). Use the highest Level in your party plus the bonus shown for the monster’s Level. Use these cards whenever you would roll on a table to determine which Vermin, Minion, Boss or Weird Monster you encounter. Instead of rolling, draw a card from the appropriate deck, play it and then reshuffle it into the deck. You can combine monster decks together, expanding the variation of encounters with every new set released.

In a previous update I read that the card decks wouldn’t repeat content, but all these monsters appear in the core book don’t they?

Alex could you share the template so that we can make our own cards for the supplement books ?

Awesome content! Any plans to release monster decks for any of the supplement books?

Thanks, Wesley!
As far as I know, there are no such plans. 4AD author focused on making unique content and doesn't want to duplicate existing materials in different forms.

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.
