I was however confused by some of the wording in regards to the deck. It says once a card it drawn it must be used or discarded in that round (clear enough) but the verbiage says that once a card is discarded the magic stops functioning... That is where I get a little confused.
For a spell like magic missile there isn't really any problem: you shoot, hit, damage, done. Victory to the gypsy!
For a spell like Mage armor which operates on the idea of an hour per caster level doesn't this wording of: ceases to function until the next day mean that Mage armor only works for one round? If so would you say that spells with a permanent effect (bestow curse) would also only work for one round?
A card ceases to function once a gypsy discards it, but a spell that she used the card to start casting continues to function.
Example 1: A level 3 gypsy draws a card with mage armor on it. She uses the card to cast mage armor on herself, then she discards the card. She benefits from mage armor for 3 hours as normal. However, if she picks up that same card and tries to cast mage armor again, nothing happens because the card stopped functioning when it was discarded. She can't cast mage armor by using that card again until she shuffles it into her deck the following day.
Example 2: A level 3 gypsy draws a card with sleep on it. She uses the card to start casting sleep, which takes 1 round, then she discards the card. She continues to cast sleep. On her next turn, she completes the spell and it puts 2 goblins to sleep. The goblins continue to sleep for 3 minutes. However, that card cannot be used to cast sleep again until shuffled into her deck the following day.
Please let me know if you are still confused or have any questions. I'm always happy to help!
