Conversation Cards

Watermarked PDF

Are you looking for a way to add more description to your game? Why not start with giving a little more character to your characters! It gets tired and stale when characters just ‘say’ things all the time, when they’re ‘friendly’ or ‘hostile’ instead of being ‘an adoring fan’ or ‘concerned and suspicious’.

This is where Conversation Cards come in! These printable cards give characters new ways to ‘say’ things, from ‘chirping’ to ‘stammering’ to ‘threatening’. But they aren’t just pages out of a thesaurus – each card contains a host of other cues for you to use in play.

The first cue is a card’s attitude. Each conversation card has one of three attitudes: passive, submissive and aggressive. These attitudes represent a character’s overall position on a topic; whether they are helpful, neutral, or hostile to it. Each attitude is further broken down into three levels of emphasis: subtle, casual and overt. These levels of emphasis help set the pace of the conversation, with some speeding action up and others slowing it down.

Game masters can either assemble decks ahead of time for important characters that the party might meet, or draw randomly from the full deck of 27 cards when they begin a conversation with someone new. A more complicated character might draw two or more cards, and an evolving conversation might result in changing what card a character is using as their cue.

These cards can serve as a great playing aid for players, too – giving them cues for how their characters might react in different situations – or even just providing them with a list of new words to make use of the next time they get into a social encounter.

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.
