Coming up with imaginative details on the spot is never easy. Whether you are a seasoned dungeon master, or just started with roleplaying, Dungeon Discoveries card decks help you conjure up inspirational world-building details with the flip of a card.

Each themed, 50-card set generates thousands of system neutral results, ranging from cryptic, mundane, to funny. Draw a card and match up any entry from the top and bottom half. Draw multiple cards to create awesome combinations. You can even mix sets and GO CRAZY :)

  • Works with any RPG System (no rules text, no dice rolling) 
  • Insane replay value with near infinite combinations.
  • Thousands of possible results per 50-card deck. 
  • Suggested retail price MSRP $14.99 per deck in tuck-box

Are your players veering off the beaten path? Searching in places you didn't plan? Looking for a mysterious new quest hook? Dungeon Discoveries decks provide an endless stream of ideas: When you are planning your next game, or on the spot during game night. Never again will you have to say... "You find nothing"...

Endless Combinations & Replay Value.

You are free to combine entries from the top and bottom half, giving you many fun options per card. Each fifty card set contains 400 "seeds". When you combine two or more cards the amount of options escalates quickly, and smart people have told us that a single 50-card deck of Dungeon Discoveries gives you tens of thousands of results. Granted, not every single combination will make sense, some will even be (un)intentionally funny - which could be a good thing :-)

The Three Sets.

Never experience this again: 

Lothar: "I search the room for clues. What do I find?"  - Rolls a 5
GM: "You find nothing"
Lothar: "Wait a minute, what do you mean nothing? We traveled through barren wilderness, slain the Troll King of Gurglewarts to break into the ancient Tomb of Hellcragg and I find nothing? What do you mean nothing? There's dust on the floor, a cracked rotting table, the remains of a discarded coin pouch, scratches on that odd-looking stone over there. What do you mean I find nothing?"
GM: "Uhm, let me consult my 5th Edition Epic Tome of Interesting Things" - Flips through 400 pages for ten minutes
Lothar: "Right. Break for snacks?"

Spark Your Creativity.

There are plenty of random encounter and treasure decks on the market, sure. But they are usually rules-heavy and offer very low replayability (if any.) Dungeon Discoveries decks can be used during gameplay, during preparation, using it to come up with fresh ideas for your story and encounters, or even in ways we have not touched yet. 

Some popular uses: 

  • Generate interesting before the game: Create hidden clues, mysterious objects, surprising story hooks, red herrings and more.
  • Generate ideas during the game: When your players roll investigation checks, talk to NPCs, a cryptic cliffhanger at the end of a session
