Ready for a whole new way to roleplay? Draw a Plot Twist Card and guide the adventure in directions limited only by your creativity. Plot Twist Cards open up a new experience of shared storytelling, providing players with ways to suggest new events during an adventure or get help when they need it most. Each of the deck's 51 cards presents a different theme that the GM and players, working together, can weave into the game’s narrative, as well as related rules effects. With Plot Twist Cards, everyone can help tell the story and enjoy being surprised by new and unexpected turns of fortune.

GameMastery Plot Twist Cards add a new storytelling element to roleplaying games, allowing players to bring their own twists to an adventure’s plot. Each card provides a minor story-altering idea along with a few options players can either use as presented or take inspiration from to craft similarly themed suggestions that affect in-game events. Every Plot Twist Card can be interpreted in countless ways, allowing players to suggest minor alterations to a game’s events that a GM might add or adapt however best fits the story’s needs. Such alterations might bring about an added bit of luck to improve the situation for the PCs or up the ante to create even greater challenges—it’s all up to the players and their Game Master!

My Group Loves These Cards!

*****

My players and I love the plot twist cards. At the beginning of each session, I give all of the players a card to play at will asking them not to show the card to me or anyone else in the group until played. In last week's game, right before they were about to enter a manor, my wife plays the "Path Least Traveled" card. So I have her discover a secret door leading to a stairway to some catacombs under the house. Another player immediately plays the "Fleeting Glimpse" card. He hears some ghouls that would have been in the next room waiting for the unsuspecting party members. My last player says, "Ah, what the heck." He plays the "Sanity Check" card and a tentacle comes out of the ground destroys the ghouls and all hell breaks loose…

These cards are a lot of fun. If you are a GM who is well prepared but looking for something to shake things up with some random happenings you should try them out. They may require a little bit of quick thinking and on the fly rulings, but they have so far always been the highlight of our game. We have been using them for a few weeks now.


A Fantastic Way of Giving More Control to Players

*****

I use these cards as a reward system for good roleplaying. In my games, we hand out votes after every session and each player votes for the person they feel roleplayed the most and/or furthered the plot the most during the session. When they accumulate 10 such votes, they get one of these cards which can be redeemed at any time. It rewards people who advance the story with the ability to alter the story in small (and sometimes not-so-small!) ways and encourages players to promote the story. Good stuff all around!


Whimsey Cards are back with a vengeance!

*****

This card deck is one of the better prop/accesory ideas since, erm, Paizo's own Harrow Deck.

Allowing players to influence the narrative in a cool and unusual way is great. Especially as it helps me draw LARP/narrativist players to Pathfinder!

Great idea, great execution. Also, whoever references '80s Lion Rampant products by Tweet and Rein(dot)Hagen gets a point with me.


Great story enhancers

*****

I decided to step-out a bit and order these. My fear was that maybe they had the power to greatly derail the storyline, but one of the things I like about the cards is the recommendation that came with them that states, basically, if the card will break your game, replace it with another card. This way the game doesn't go sideways, and your player doesn't feel cheated, but you still get a fresh turn of events to keep people interested.

Just reading them gave me and my players some great role-playing ideas, and my group can't wait to actually use the ones they were dealt. I'd recommend these to anyone who plays Pathfinder/3.5.


Loads of fun

*****

I really enjoy my players having access to these cards. I usually give out one per game session of Star Wars. The players usually come up with really creative ways to incorporate them and its been a great laugh so far.

I hope that they continue with this line but that future releases will make cards similar to the new Gamma World ones where you can roll/gamble on making their effects better or worse.

Fits surprisingly well into Star Wars SAGA with only a little modification here and there. Definitely worth 5 stars.
