The cards come in two parts:
- 20 Special Cards. Each player receives one at random at the start of the session. They allow genre-appropriate, thematic rules-breaking when played. Each one will put a specific twist on the session, and help reinforce Lovecraftian themes.
- 5 Reference Cards. These contain a handy summary of the three roles (Witness, Narrator and 3 x Watcher) and a convenient way to mark who is currently in which role.
The PDF will include copies of the cards so you can print them out yourself. You can also play a simplified version of the game without them.
