Truly Wild Magic - Random Magic Effect Cards

THIS PROJECT IS 100% FUNDED! ALL STRETCH GOALS UNLOCK FOR ALL BACKERS SO THE MORE WE RAISE THE BETTER THE DECKS WILL BE FOR EVERYONE! HELP SPREAD THE WORD AND LET'S GET SOME OF THOSE STRETCH GOALS KNOCKED OUT!

What are you funding?

Truly Wild Magic is a full color 54 card deck featuring magical effects that occur when a spell doesn't work the way you expect it to. Instead or rolling dice and checking tables you can simply flip over a random card or deal out multiple to your party if everyone is affected all at once! 

-54 poker sized cards with random magical effects with a humorous tone that won't break your game but will add some fun to any situation

-Several cards have custom art work, stretch goals will unlock more art for more of the cards created by hand picked artists that will all provide their own style to the cards

-Universal so that the cards can be used in any game system, just flip over a card when something in your game goes haywire and run with it!

Originally created as replacement rules for the Wild Magic Sorcerer as featured in Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, we've customized the spell effects to work with any role playing game but included rules specific to that rule set in the included PDF's.

 

 

 

  • All stretch goals unlock for all reward tiers, if a change happens to the cards then everyone receives it!

 

 

 

For any game, any time!

Dead Magic, Broken Magic, Wild Magic... there are many names for what is essentially the same thing. In some places or during certain times magic itself warps and changes. Sometimes it's an area or a place haunted by tragedy, a place where wights and ghouls roam or souls are unable to escape. Maybe it's a place where demon lords have arisen and their gathering has created area's of "spell plague" or Faerzress as they call it in the Underdark. Whatever the case, magic doesn't function the same everywhere all the time. When you want to introduce wild magic into your game just reach for this deck of cards. Detailed inside on the rule cards are some ideas for why or when to include these effects into your game and the included illustrations are cool visuals that just help add to your descriptions.

Why Kickstarter?

Making the rules cost us some time and effort but it didn't cost us any money. To put these cards in your hands isn't free and though we've pitched in to pay for some art, we've devoted weeks of time to finding the right artist, working out our ideas and getting everything ready to print and release...we're at the part where we need your help. We'd love to do more for the community and create more content for table top role playing games so that you can enjoy them right along with us. For us to keep doing that we're asking that you toss in a few bucks, get some cool swag and help us get our foot in the door so that we can devote more time to this in the future. Wild magic doesn't just extend to these 50 options, it's almost infinite! What if you're traveling on the plane of Ice or Fire? Would you still drown in a tidal wave of lava if you were immune to fire? We've got a lot more than just Truly Wild Magic up our sleeves, we've got entire worlds to share with you. Pick up one of our decks and we'll be forever grateful as we continue to labor away at the tables and books for your enjoyment!

In Closing

The entire idea of Truly Wild Magic is to add layer after layer of role playing opportunities for the Players and the Game Master to run with. You try to manipulate fate and cast spells while toying with powers you truly don't understand and accidents sometimes occur. Oops, I grew a beard instead of going invisible. Oops, I'm a flower now but at least the Ogre is laughing instead of trying to smash me. 

You can see where we're going with this. Sit back, grab your deck and hold onto your character sheet...don't forget to pack something that puts out fires though, you just might need it.

 

 

Risks and challenges

The production side of things is being handled by one company that was carefully chosen for multiple reasons. We're using a proven manufacturer with an amazing turn around time and great product quality. Their facility will handle everything from the printing, cutting, quality assurance and shipping directly to our front door step.

Our art is already complete for the original few cards we're going to have included in the deck and any stretch goal artist are already aware of our time constraints and have guaranteed us that they'll be able to provide the quality of art we are looking for in a timely manner. Since we have multiple artist lined up we don't expect this to cause any issues with delivery times.

Final packaging will be completed directly at the manufacturer but final shipping to customers will be going through our hands. Our past successful Kickstarter have shown us that shipping is a hugely underrated and expensive process. We have learned to plan carefully, price as exactly as possible and remove as much of the time consuming hands on process as possible which is why we'll just be printing labels and boxing decks!

Barring any catastrophic accidents or major shifts in the Earth's axis we believe that we're knowledgeable, experienced and prepared to bring you an amazing deck of cards that will enhance your gaming experience for years to come.
