The Dungeon Delving Deck provides an amazing amount of help running 5e games:

  • A regular card deck (Ace-King and Joker for each Suit)
  • provides dice rolls for d4, d6, d8, d10, d12 and d20
  • geomorphs for designing your own dungeon
  • spell and conditions reference for 5e

But buying The Dungeon Delving Deck helps others too…

Prisoners Need Heroes
Roleplaying can be a great way to explore problem-solving, ethical behavior and heroic expectations. That means it can be an important part of the rehabilitation process for prisoners. But playing in prison can be tough… dice are usually forbidden so other randomizers have to be used. A regular deck of playing cards can be used, but has some limitations when you’re trying to generate all the numbers needed for most RPGs.

But what else could I add other than dice results?

What about spell and condition references...? The spells are some of the most common low level spells, especially suited for Clerics and Wizards.

What about the backs?

I thought that a great idea for the backs would be dungeon geomorphs... i.e tiles that you can fit together to make dungeon layouts. For the dice cards, it's important that you can't tell what the face of the card is by the back (for example, if you're using the cards to play a regular game of poker). So each card has one of two layouts and they're distributed in a random way so that you can't tell anything about the card values. But the cards that don't have dice can be special. So they're an assortment of 'point of interest' tiles that you can use in the dungeon layout.

Hmmm... what about folks who aren't in prison?

Yeah. So once I figured out all the things I could do with the cards they seemed pretty neat. Maybe something that folks would want to use in home games, or as a planning tool. I even realized that if you made the size right, you could use building blocks as character/monster tokens:

Using 1x1 building blocks as tokens

So I decided to open things up for everyone. And I also decided that by doing that, it might help out my plans to get these decks to prisoners. When you buy The Dungeon Delving Deck, a portion of the proceeds will go to producing Decks to be donated to prisons across the United States.

Product Information
Publisher Stock #
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.
