What wondrous things do you expect to find as you delve deep into the dungeon? What strange items might be waiting for you in the wilderlands? What incredible artifacts are hidden beneath the waterways? What hidden relics lie buried deep, deep underground?

Objects of Intrigue is the latest addition to the Game Master’s Toolbox. It consists of four unique card decks, each one featuring a different area in which your players may find something interesting. Each card has multiple outcomes which you can choose from or roll for. Cards are categorized as good, neutral, and bad for even more versatility.

Good cards come with some type of reward, such as an item, a buff, or useful information. Neutral cards offer storytelling and roleplaying opportunities such as subtle hints to side quests and other information which may change the course of the party. Bad cards come with some type of detriment or challenge, such as a curse, trap, or monster encounter.

There are 52 cards per deck. Each card is designed to be versatile and fit into almost any situation, easily answering that age-old question from players: “What do we find?”

These four decks are designed to be used with 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons, but they can work with most fantasy-themed RPGs. We have multiple pledge levels to best suit your gaming budgets, so please check out the project, share it with your friends, and help us reach our goal!

Add Ons

PDF Versions. Each of the following add ons are a book style version of their corresponding deck. They have all the same content, except its slightly expanded.

Stretch Goals

$30,000 FREE PDFs - At this funding level we will add a free book style PDF to each deck you receive at the $12-$42 pledge level. Essentially this means you'll receive a PDF version of the deck(s) you choose during the Backerkit survey. Additionally, there will be a free Complete PDF for all $42 backers.

Risks and challenges

We will be fulfilling via USPS as usual, so we aren't expecting any issues there. The production will be handled by a printer that we've worked with many times in the past, and we have a backup printer just in case.
