This is great, just buy them! I used it while introducing two new players to roleplaying along with a group of players who have experience. I did it for a short campaign and it is just a blast. It really gets new players into actually roleplaying in the game, as using theese cards sort of puts them in the right mindset. Lets them act out their characters a bit before the game starts.
I highly recomend getting and reading "Backstory Cards: Techniques Guide". It is free and gives great tips on how to get the most use out of theese cards. A good tip is to leave the setting elements somewhat open, that way, the players get to build your world with you....

There was a problem with a very low image quality of the print-at-home pdf files. The publisher fixed the error immediately after being notified. Now we can enjoy the fantastic graphics in all their glory. Stellar user service; keep up the good work!
I got this and all of the rest of the expansions / main deck after seeing one of the cards in the Alleyman Tarot. This deck is wonderfully weird and I'm looking forward to using it. The colors are muted and there is female nudity. The only things that could make this deck better are male nudity (Equal Opportunity, eh?) and some pops of color. The base deck along with the expansions allow you to personalize your deck and switch out and replace cards. Looking forward to the final expansion.
I like the tables. I bought the game after these were the standard, so I don't know how they compare to the originals, but I'm sure they are an improvement. They are easy to read, and a great compliment to the game.
The heavywieghts are my favorite division. If you love boxing, then you have to have this set. I am glad that this set came in my bundle. The cards are well made and I like the design over the original game.
This is a good way to start your game off. It has everything you need to get started. The only compaint I have is that they need to put in a simple game board. Luckily, you can find one Board Game Geek that works perfectly.
**If the author reads this: please correct filenames to fit the actual ID number of the card. This issue affects ALL decks of "The Game Master's Apprentice".**
I don't know why anyone else hasn't stumbled across this, but the filenames include the number of the card. And those filenames do NOT match the actual number ID printed on the card. That just means confusion when I use them in Fantasy Grounds. Now I roll for a random card, the number was 14 out of 120 possible cards. So I pick up the card with filename GMA Base VTT_Part14.jpg, but if you look at the card, the ID printed in the bottom right hand corner is 110/120. That is definately wrong. To remedy this, I now need to open all image files, look at their printed number on the lower right hand corner and change the corresponding filename. First off, we will see, if any cards are missing and therefore used double. And second of all, I have purchased ALL decks of The Game Master's Apprentice.
