Hey Kids!

Do you like the idea of a fun and expandable Adventure Deck in your 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons game, but think that $8 for 4 cards is still pretty ridiculous?

Then check out these cool-ass Drama Cards, brought to us by this classy guy over at 1d4chan! Not only are they useful for a 4E game, but many of them could be used in whatever version of Dungeons and Dragons you care to run! Download them here from Megaupload!

Yeah, I know, I know. Magic: the Gathering is ruining the sanctity of the gaming table and trading cards are a blight on society, but I picked up a Magic deck long before I ever rolled any polyhedrons and I think stuff like this is pretty cool. I would love to integrate something like this into my game, to match my wonderful Deck of Stuff.

So here's a toast to not overreacting as well as finding creative solutions to problems!


  1. Well, yes, obviously I'm all for sneering athletic lesbians in wife-beaters trying to kill each other with metal. That's drama. But for $2 I'd expect a life size poster (or at least a decent printable color pdf), not just a little card. Hmm.

  2. @Spawn, I think you misunderstand. All of the pictures in this post are from the free Drama Cards. This is what the official ones look like:

    Apparently, I did also mess up on the price quote, which should be the other way around (8 for $4), which is still incredibly high.

  3. But, but why must you take away my righteous gamer rage with creative solutions? RAAAAAAAGE!

  4. cool! I wouldn't use these unless I go down the 4E route, but paying $4 bux for EIGHT FRIGGING CARDS!?!?!? is just plain shithouse rat crazy.

  5. I love these free cards, thank you! Now I'll just need to print them out and laminate them...

    As for WotC's cardboard crack, I can't begrudge them for trying to make a buck, but I don't think I'll be picking any up myself.

    Thank you for sharing these!

  6. No prob, Dave! I think that a deck full of cool shit like this could be the perfect solution for adding something like Encounter powers into older editions of D&D without having to implement a whole bunch of subsystems, like the Savage Worlds Adventure Deck.
