The Tarot Variation

An Alternative Sorcery Deck for Castle Falkenstein

In the Tarot Variation, the ordinary deck of playing cards used for the Sorcery Deck is replaced with a Tarot Deck. Over the centuries the Tarot Deck has been used both for playing games and for divination and, because of this, these colorful cards, rich with imagery and symbolism, can perfectly represent a more robust and fascinating Magick. With a Tarot Deck, Magic in Castle Falkenstein becomes more than just a form of energy divided into four types but a living, breathing thing with whims and purposes of Its own.

A compact and straightforward variant for the Sorcery Deck. It adds potential benefits and hindrances for a spell and also reinforces the sense that magic in Castle Falkenstein is a complicated and sometimes dangerous endeavour. This won't be for all [...]

An review This little pdf clocks in at 6 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 3 pages of content, so let's take a look! So, this pdf very much represents a substitution - Cast [...]

Now this is a fun little book. It's not long, only six pages, but it packs a punch. This guide allows gamemasters of Castle Falkenstein to use a standard tarot deck instead of playing cards for the game. There are additional rules to cover the Major [...]

I like this variation, it helps to make magick seem less mundane in the game. As magick no longer uses an ordinary pack of cards, it is separated from making common actions in the game and so adds to the mystique of those who have ‘the Talent [...]

Original electronic
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.
