Wayfarer's Deck: Courtly Whispers
A downloadable deck
What is Wayfarer's Deck?
This series of 50-card decks with encounters, wonders, mysteries, puzzles, and findings provides a convenient way of creating engaging situations for the players. Instead of rolling for random encounters, pick a card (or draw one at random, or roll a d100 and divide the result by two - whatever sounds like fun for you) and let yourself be inspired.
The cards introduce a variety of encounters and don't dictate the solutions. You're never forced to fight whatever you've found, and the player have a full agency to do whatever they wish. There are no stat blocks and no answers to the mysteries - you're free to take the situation wherever the inspiration takes you.
The cards are setting-agnostic and compatible with any fantasy game, solo or in a party play, with or without a game master.
Take a Bow
The crowd parts as the servant announces your arrival. Masked faces turn towards you, and heated whispers start when you take the first step into the court. In the crowd, you notice a couple of familiar faces - wealthy traders, nobles, career politicians, and thieves; all are making rounds in the hopes of achieving their goals. You breathe in the heavy scent of mixed perfumes and smile. In the dance you're about to start, a false step can mean social death - but oh, how exciting the experience will be...
Wayfarer's Deck: Courtly Whispers invites you to delve into intrigues, rumors, and scandals present on any court deserving the name. Get involved in complex schemes and power struggles, entertain the courtiers, and partake in libations and discussions. Whether you prefer to witness, facilitate, or stop political upheavals, this deck will keep you busy.
