More Uses For Your Tarokka Deck

Tarokkas, Random Tables

You can now draw cards from your Tarokka deck, regardless of whether you are playing Curse of Strahd. Below, I have made it easy for you and me by writing the numbers on a table.

These cards, except for the d6 column in the table, don't exactly match the probability of a throw of an actual dice. This would be unacceptable if it were a saving throw or ability check, attack, damage roll, or saving throw. This is good enough for a DM's random tables. This is as good as it gets without any extra cards!

It's great fun to have players draw the cards for treasure or encounters. You can add drama to the table by asking players to draw the cards. Psychologically, it shifts the responsibility of the outcome to the player. The other players watch and hope for a good result.

You can see the table below or download it as a PDF from the Free Game Resources section.

Some of your favourite streamers, publishers, and podcasters will be present at the convention. I will also be live on Twitch to raise funds for Cybersmile, an international non-profit that supports victims of cyberbullying.

Check out the Roll20CON schedule below. You'll see that I am running two games during the live stream. This is with Rudy Basso of the Tome Show’s D&D V&G podcast and Have Spellbook. Also, you'll find Nadja Otikor of Misscliks D&D Prophecy and Greg Bilsland of Wizards of the Coast, as well as Chris Freakin’ Perkins, who is a Wizards of the Coast D&D employee and needs no introduction.
