It’s a dangerous business, going out your door. . .
The myriad strange recursions floating in the shoals of Earth are both wondrous and dangerous—and so is the process of translating to, from, and between them. The Translation Deck helps you generate creative and unexpected GM intrusions that sometimes occur during the process of moving between alternate worlds. Draw a couple of cards and pick one you like, or let them inspire an idea of your own. This 33-card deck of GM intrusions injects twists, complications, and challenges into your players’ translation attempts.
PDF purchasers: To print your Translation Deck, set your double-sided printer to short-edge binding and print on a cardstock material. Then, with a sharp utility knife and straight edge, use the crop marks as guides to trim the cards apart. If you don’t have a double-sided printer, print the pages individually and then glue them back-to-back with a thin, even coat of adhesive. Before glueing, hold the back-to-back sheets up to a light source to ensure they are lining up correctly. The gutters between the cards give you a little bit of leeway if the two sides do not line up exactly.
