Need to make your character's life even more interesting, or want to throw the GM a curve ball? Our latest GameMastery offering will give you even more twists and turns for your roleplaying game!
If pulling out a pre-made adventure causes your players to cry "railroad", you'll be able to stifle those protests with GameMastery Plot Twist Cards: Flashbacks! These cards give players and GMs the chance to turn the tide in their favor, or take the story in completely different directions! Is your party about to be overrun by three sinspawn lurking in the swamp? Play the Phobia card and they run away, frightened of the fire-wielding sorceress or the keen-eyed ranger with a quiver full of arrows! Did you just barely fail your grapple check against the halfling barbarian last round? Try again with Deja Vu and get a +5 bonus this time! If you fall into the improv GM category, this is a perfect addition to your repertoire—your players will definitely keep you on your toes with these, but if you're a player, you can only have one of these cards up your sleeve at a time. Will you use your Magic Moment to charm a city guard, or will you save it you have to remove a terrible curse from your friend?
One of the best things about these cards is that players can play them at any time, on anything—friend or foe—but they're also incredibly useful for building up character background. Pull the Nightmare card, and perhaps your character saw beloved family members rising from the grave, or they are in search of a Lost Loved One, or perhaps you failed to save someone under your care (Regret). While we've included rules snippets for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, you can use these cards in any roleplaying game in almost every genre!

I just got mine and I will immediately add them to my game. The Plot Twist cards have added so much depth and fun to our game. Players have used them in incredibly creative ways. Don't be afraid to give these a try.
