Glorious Gear—Plus the Twelve True Treasures of Storia!

Candy camouflage, catarang, the lesser of two weevils and more await you in the No Thank You, Evil! Equipment Deck! I mean, who couldn’t make use of The Book of Fibs from time-to-time? Get this 54-card equipment deck and take your No Thank You, Evil! game to the next level!

Subtle Cypher Deck

The Subtle Cypher Deck is my jam, baby! I love playing modern Cypher games, so the Subtle Cypher Deck brings joy to my little heart. Generate subtle cyphers on the fly simply by drawing a card, which the player can keep until used, thus eliminating any hassle from looking up and writing down text. There are suggestions on the back of the cards for when to use them, and the deck even works as a random d100 or d6 number generator! It also looks great in the Numenera Deck Box, just saying.
