Storytelling with the Sorte Deck: Using the Cards to Inspire Your Stories

Suggested Price $1.00

Use 7th Sea’s Sorte deck or another set of Tarot cards to boost your creativity and help you improvise story elements!

Using this intuitive and fast method, GMs and writers can quickly create scenes, missions, and characters with depth and dynamism. GMs can even do it in the middle of a game session!

This supplement describes methods for creating a Scene or Side-quest, a major character such as a Hero or a Villain, and a minor character.

There are several examples inside, and an Appendix with 10 “practice draws” that you can work with, even if you don’t have a Sorte or Tarot deck.

With thanks to: Jabari Weathers, illustrator of the 7th Sea Sorte Deck; to Thad Green, writer of the Strega’s Loom supplement; and to Marc Burkom for review.

Very nice work, and I'm delighted you found my ideas helpful! I'm particularly intrigued by your use of the cards to develop the ambient nature of the setting itself, as well as the people in it. Very cool.

Rule System(s)
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.
