Sprawlrunners Countdown Deck

Selected Option:

This deck of playing cards is designed to be used with the Sprawlrunners toolkit, and offers the following features:

1. Four jokers instead of the usual two, each with a suit.
2. Prominent “countdown numbers” at the top of each card. These are used for initiative: After dealing the cards, count down from highest to lowest to determine turn order.
3. A special “sprawl symbol” at the bottom of each card. The symbols are improvisational prompts; the “cyber eye” could represent cybernetics, a clue or observation, a retinal scan, or perhaps something more symbolic such as intelligence, light, vigilance, judgement, or authority. Likewise a “fistful of cash” might represent a payment, bribery, theft, etc.
The unique sprawl symbols can be used as inspiration for interludes and downtime activities, for adding flavor to the missions, to flesh out complications during a chase or other encounter, and so on.

Digital Content

  • The deck in Print-and-play PDF format in both A4 and US Letter format
  • Individual image files for the cards to be used with a VTT of your choice

Fitting style for the game. And coherent naming conventions to make it easy to implement in VTTs. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
