This thematic deck of 56 playing cards is designed to be used with the Saga of the Goblin Horde setting, however it can easily be used for other fantasy games as well. It offers three advantages over a standard deck of playing cards:

1. Four jokers instead of the usual two, and each joker has a suit. This can make the game even more crazy, and ties in better with some of the rules (such as the kickball rules in the Saga of the Goblin Horde campaign, which have a special effect if you draw the joker of clubs).

2. Prominent “countdown numbers” at the top of each card. You can use these for initiative: deal a card to each player and one for each group of NPCs, and count down from highest to lowest to determine turn order. Fast characters can draw multiple cards and keep the highest, while very slow creatures might draw two or three cards and keep the lowest.

3. A “saga symbol” at the bottom of each card. These symbols are improvisational prompts; an “elephant” could represent any sort of herd creature, or just something big, or it could be interpreted as strength, stamina, wisdom, memory, loyalty, etc. Likewise the “torch” might represent fire, knowledge, destruction, heat, light, exploration, etc.

The saga symbols can be used as inspiration for the goblins’ boastful tales and downtime activities, to add flavor to the adventure generator (draw one card for each scene), to flesh out complications during a chase, and so on.

Note: If you want to use the Countdown Deck on a Virtual Tabletop, or simply want to check out the cards before you buy them, you should download the free VTT Cards and Tokens!

Format
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.
