ZIP File

Welcome to The Deck of Many Actions. What is The Deck of Many Actions? They are cards drawn at the beginning (or during) an adventure to spice things up and give the PCs a chance to perform a special actions.

How to use The Deck of Many Actions
The Deck of Many Actions can be used two ways, depending on how you want to integrate them into your game:

Method 1: Campaign Use
At any point during an adventure (or prior to starting), the player may choose to spend an Action Point to draw a card from the deck. The character keeps the card and may use it immediately or any time in the future (including a future adventure). A player may only draw or use one card per round (just like spending an Action Point) and may not have more than 3 cards at any time (the GM could adjust the maximum number of cards to make the game more cinematic). Once used, the card is shuffled back into the deck.

Method 2: Adventure Use
The players choose 3 cards (or more if the GM wants more cinematic action) prior to starting an adventure. At any point during the adventure, a player may spend an Action Point to use the card. At the end of the adventure, the cards are returned to the deck.

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.
