Such a beautiful, vintage looking Rider-Waite Smith deck. I love the vintage feel and look of this deck. I really love that this deck is borderless. I would love to be able to get this deck with titles and numbers. Very pleased with this purchase!
Got my order today and its gorgeous. **The only way these cards could be any better is if the 2-10 cards of each suit were illustrated as well. I would happily have paid more for a full illustrated deck in this style.**
I've been fishing around for some time and this is the only tarot deck I've been able to find with a suitably grim, medieval-ish design, perfect for my intended use of having my Warhammer party try to divine and dodge what tomorrow will bring. The black & white inked picture design is the closest I have been able to find so far (style-wise) to the sketchy paperback illustrations seen in the Norrel & Strange television series, which inspired me to go looking in the first place. Most others are just too colourful or cartoony to thematically fit a grim setting. **It doesn't hurt that the cards are a nice midnight black either.**
Time to go shopping for a 80 or 90-card deck case to protect these....

I am unbelievably shocked at how good this is. I thought it was impossible to reproduce this deck since all the original high resolution files were lost, but the quality is incredible. Caveat: you'll need to get the rulebook on another page in the storyteller's vault: https://www.storytellersv-
This was a nice variation to the classic PCS RWS deck design. I like the borderless design and hope through constant use over the years the card stock will wear and break in a bit to match the aged appearance of the prints.
I should have read more carefully, but the custom tuck box is not much of a benefit over a simple shrink wrap. My box, although packaged/padded well, came with a tear on one of the corners, and the package design itself will not hold up to constant use of taking the cards in and out without further destruction. A box with lid would have been a nicer option for preservation, or again simple shrink wrap to lower the price a bit for a slightly customized standard deck design that I believe is in the public domain anyway.
Still happy with the print quality and inspiration the vintage look provides. Thanks!...
Sentinels of the Multiverse is a great game which understands how to make co-op fun. However where SotM understands how card games work and makes decisions from there, The Cauldron understands how SotM works and adds to and improves the base formula. This set is worth a buy if you love Sentinels. Now let's talk about why F.S.C. Continuance Wanderer is a great enviroment
Honestly I've hesitated on reviewing the enviroment decks because they're a bit too much to handle, at least the ones in the base set. Ideally the environment should be a neutral party that hampers both the villain and the hero. That's not to say there shouldn't be enviorments that require more attention from the heroes, it's just that a lot of enviorments both in the Cauldron and sentinels proper can take up too much of your time and resources. And it does get worse in the Cauldron's base set. That said, let's talk about why FSC is actually pretty great
FSC is both unique and good because it's basically "The One-...

Great overview of the tarot. Covers basic usage plus major arcana and minor arcana. The art would be the main reason to get this. I paid $25 before the sale to get a bundle of White Wolf products. I think the pdf version itself is free. I already had a physical tarot deck.
I hope that was insightful,
I have the game so printing this PNP for on the go or to let those I don't trust with my real copy was nice. It made a nice teaching aid and I could give people the PNP cards to use at the end of the night. If they like the game they will buy their own copy. If they don't like it enough to buy a copy then at least they can play it a few times to learn how to play it when they run across it. Nice enough to use as an instructional aid or to use with kids but not a replacement for the real wood tiles. ...

Vanish is the quick character who hits a lot of times for very little. Her cards revolve around either doing small amounts of damage or interfering with enemies, with a little support on the side. Her main strategy is to draw cards quickly, then discard to hit multiple targets, though because of the wording you could hit the same target multiple times if you wanted! She also has cards that let her use multiple powers a turn and inflict damage when you use a power, so if you like setting up combos, this is your girl! Her other main use is, as I mentioned, running interference. From cards that mess with the damage the enemy can deal/take or lets...

Made it easy for me to move them all into Sentinels boxes. The card quality is a little thinner than the official cards, but only by a little; they are good quality and what I expected. I am very happy with what I got, and the print quality is very good too. So far I haven't encountered any misprints, and even if I did I wouldn't worry. The only downside is the decks don't have their own dividers; but it's an easy fix with how the individual decks were packaged (just write the name of the deck on the plastic). Overall, I'd recommend this to anyone looking to buy the Cauldron. Will definitely come back to this site if I ever need to have something printed!...

If it wasn't obvious, Quicksilver is an expy of Wolfverine with the powers of the T-1000. This is fiting, since she hits like a truck and is very hard to put down. Her main gimmick is that her deck is full of combo cards and they all have the same effect that you can immediately play a finisher after or hit herself for 2 melee damage to chain another combo card. The combos tend to deal small damage but can stack up quickly (much like Matriarch's birds). Combine this with cards in her deck that increase her own damage or the damage of *everything on the field* or the card that lets you play combos during the enemy's turn and you got yourse...

Finally, there's a doctor in the house! While characters like Tempest and Omnitron-X have some consistent healing (if you draw it), it nice to finally have a character that's dedicated to keeping everyone else alive! He has cards that heal everyone, heal a single person, cards that heal himself passively and even a card that increases the amount of healing everyone recieves (but I do mean *everyone* so be careful when you use it). On top of that he has cards that let players draw new cards and retrieve cards from the graveyard, and he can even let other players play on his turn. This guy is a team player!
One problem with healers in most...
