Deck of Many Foes


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

52 Unique Opponents ready to be unleashed!


The Deck of Foes is bursting with potential. It can either be used as a magic item capable summoning challenging monsters in combat and therefore very dangerous in the wrong hand, or as a DM resource to create random and unique encounters for the player characters to face.

Each foe is assigned a card in a normal deck of cards, from 2 (lowest challenge rating) to the Ace (highest). The lower creatures are tricky opponents where as the highest ranks can be terrifying!

Each suit has a theme linking all creatures of that type.

  • Hearts:        Magic
  • Diamonds: Mutation
  • Spades:       Weapons
  • Clubs:          Nature

Thanks to its simple, scalable stats, each card is suitable for low (1-4), mid (5-8), high (9-12), and epic (13-20) level parties.

There is also a Challenge Rating index table at the back of the book to measure the difficulty of each encounter.

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.
