Translation Deck

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.
