Cards Of Fate, A Tarot Reading Mini Game – Free One-Page TTRPG Mechanic

To continue my one-page mini game series, I wanted to create another simple mechanic to enhance the tabletop gameplay experience. You may recall the first PDF of this series, Challenged To A Duel, A Swordsmanship Mini Game. This time I wanted to make a mechanic that could influence a campaign outside of the mini game. Something otherworldly that gives players a chance to shape their fortunes with a double edged sword…

Cards Of Fate, A Tarot Reading Mini Game is a high risk, high reward mechanic that changes the fate of your characters for a 24 hour period. It is only loosely based on actual tarot reading, focusing more on gameplay. “The Significator” mechanic creates a lot of fun roleplaying opportunities as players accidentally target various party members or NPCs and change their fortune for the day! This easy to incorporate mechanic can be plugged into any tabletop RPG system as a mini game.

I wish you luck as you shape your fate! Until next time, stay creepy and happy gaming.
