For every “good” card, there seems to be a downer :
How did someone earn one ? You hoped for something better on your Initiative roll, but got the worst. A natural 1. Sucked to go last in the combat round if it saw you flat-footed for the first round, but there is something to be said for a reactive approach to combat.
How frequently were they awarded ? I seem to be in possession of a lot of these. I don’t want to indict my ‘classic’ old red dice, but my RPG experience improved when I bought my black dice.
What’s best about this card ? It’s kind of a subtle trash-talk for its recipient.
The “Cards” series of posts recalls the special “trophy” business-cards awarded to players during E.G.’s original D&D v.3.5 game several years ago. This is a weekly post.
