Safety & Calibration Cards

Selected Option:

Roleplaying is improvised, and sometimes a game can go in an unexpected direction, or explore difficult subjects. Fortunately, there are lots of content calibration tools that help players communicate their boundaries so they can continue to play in a way that’s still fun for everyone. This is a collection of popular tools to use in tabletop or live-action roleplaying games.

Each card features a safety tool or component of a set of tools, with a description on the back of its usage.

Cards include:

  • Cut and Brake
  • Fist on Head
  • Lines and Veils (by Ron Edwards)
  • Lookdown (by Johanna Koljonen and Trine Lise Lindahl)
  • Off-Game (by Maury Brown and Johanna Koljonen)
  • Ok Check-In (by Maury Brown, with Sarah Lynn Bowman and Harrison Greene, adapted by Johanna Koljonen*)
  • Open Door (by Eirik Fatland)
  • Script Change (by Beau Sheldon)
  • Support Flower (by Tayler Stokes, based on Support Signals by Jay Sylvano)
  • X-Card (by John Stavropoulos)

Proceeds from deck sales will be donated to a charity of the designers' choice.

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.
