Deck of Many Horrors


Welcome to the DM's Day sale! From now through March 14th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our DM's Day sale page.

Deck of Many Horrors introduces a new way to use the tarokka deck (or a deck of regular playing cards, if you don’t have one) by providing you with a collection of events, encounters, NPCs, and items optimized for spontaneously generating new situations to invigorate your game.

You can use Deck of Many Horrors to spice up a session at any time with a simple draw of a card. Each outcome is designed to bring dread or excitement to your game. As such, Deck of Many Horrors is best suited for Ravenloft games, but can be used in any horror campaign.

What you get:

  • 57 unique events or encounters

  • 11 original monsters and NPCs

  • 5 new magic items

  • A new 8th-level spell

  • Original illustrations by talented artists

  • A quick guide to using playing cards rather than a tarokka deck

A well made product filled with dread and horror, spectacular "old-school" art and layout design that hits you hardly with 2ed nostalgia. Your players will be showered with cold sweat everytime they see a tarokka deck! [...]

Have a tarokka deck laying around? Then grab this supplement! It contains a variety of events for your game that give a level of uncertainty for both the players and DM. Now this isn't a supplement that's just full of random stuff, using the dec [...]

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.
