A Damn Cool Kickstarter - Dungeon Deck: Quests Expansion
I need to thank +Tim Shorts for bringing this to my attention, much like he did the Tavern Cards. Tim, I expect you will keep us properly notified of all other card based aids for our OSR gaming (Tim, you should request a commission at some point ;)
In any case, Dungeon Deck: Quests Expansion looks like a really handy way to quickly generate (or use for inspiration) a quick and short dungeon. For those times the gang is all ready to play and you have absolutely nothing prepared. Give yourself a minute with this deck and BAMN!, you have something.
I'm in for the starter deck and the two expansions. Luckily my wife does not read my blog...
From the blurb:
WHAT THIS KICKSTARTER IS FOR:
The Dungeon Deck: Quests is a way to create an adventure for one night's gaming (for any fantasy tabletop RPG) in 30 seconds. It has been in print since 2009 in the current format, and we have two expansion decks which we have had printed in a very low number by another printer. We're not as happy with the quality on those, and since we are sold out of them, we're asking for your help to print these two expansions in the better quality format.
Inside the Dungeon Deck, there are seven numbered sub-decks: (in order) Lure, Entrance, Atmosphere, Setting, Map, Challenge, and Reward. The DM pulls one card from each ahead of time, and lays them out, creating the adventure. The only things left to do are decide where the challenge(s) and reward are located (either by a random roll or by choice), and determine the exact challenge. For instance, if the "Orcs" card is pulled, what would be a challenge for a party of five 5th level characters would be deadly for three 1st level characters.
