2d6 Karma Kards

Watermarked PDF

A Karma Kard is a BINGO-style game card containing four grids of 25 squares, filled with random numbers within the range of a given die roll type (e.g., d20, 3d6, or d100). Bell curves are not taken into account—these are truly random distributions of numbers. Multiples of a number might appear, with a total absence of another, on a per grid basis. Each KARMA KARD is unique.

Each player gets a new Karma Kard at the start of a game session. Every time they roll the main die type used in that game, they cross off ONE instance of the number that matches the die result, if any one of the four grids on their KARD has that number on it. When a player has crossed off five numbers in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) in any grid, they earn Karma, and get a special benefit: automatic success on their next roll; automatic success on the current roll, or upgrading to critical success if already a success;an extra Action Point/Fate Point/Karma Die/Etc., as appropriate; or whatever the GM decides is appropriate.

For example, Jim rolls 2d6 and gets a result of 5. This is a bad roll, and a failure, but Jim looks on his Karma Kard and sees that there's are few fives in three of the grids. Jim has already checked off four other numbers in grid one, and this result of 5 allows him to connect five in a row horizontally. Jim crosses out that 5, draws a line through the five-in-a-row, and yells "Karma!". The GM decides (based on his own preference) that this means Jim can turn his failure into a success for this roll.

Karma Kards are designed to mix things up. To add an element of unpredictability. To make it so rolling low can actually benefit a player at times. And most importantly, to remind everyone that games are supposed to be FUN. Of course, for certain groups, having players focusing on numbers and papers might be distracting or a nuisance. These aren’t for everyone, or every game. But then, what is?

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.
