The Soothsayer's Deck

Selected Option:

The Soothsayer's Deck is an oracle deck of 36 cards constructed specifically to provide interesting twists on actions, for tabletop roleplaying.  It can be used as the central device for resolving action, as an augment to add on top of another game (especially diceless games like Amber and the like), for GM prompts, or even as an in-game device, as you like.


For an example of the deck as a resolution method (and a pretty good game in and of itself), the game Saints Of The Empty Throne uses the Soothsayer's Deck for resolution.

Some forms it's available in:

  • A set of print-and-play sheets; run them off on your printer, cut out, and sleeve them in card protectors for an immediately usable deck.
  • A one-page d66 table with the same art and text as the deck; two versions are given (a nice backdrop one and a printer-friendlier one).
  • For users of Roll20, the Development Kit includes as a download notes on how to set up the deck inside of that VTT, as well as all the required card images.
  • POD cards, available here!
Here's a look at the d66 table:

The Soothsayer's notes (in the files) give an overview of the anticipated usage the cards were designed towards and some things you may want to consider as you use them.

Also available to download is a development kit, which includes the text and titles of the cards under a Creative Commons Zero license, and the art and pictures of all cards under CC-BY 4.0. This is meant as an open invitation; you not only can create using this deck and it's components, I actively hope you do, and would be happy to share along what you make if you tell me about it!

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.
