Backstory Cards: Expansion #1 is a 45-card expansion containing three themed decks (15 cards each) for Backstory Cards for Foundry VTT.
Distant Worlds contains prompts that touch on vast travel, legends of lost civilizations, advanced technology, and other themes that fit hard sci-fi and fantastical space opera narratives.
Unseen Threats contains prompts for horror and investigation separately—you can incorporate just the horror cards for survival or action horror, the investigative cards for conspiracy or detective narratives, and of course blend them together for full investigative horror.
Wicked Shadows gets into themes of cyberpunk, something modern noir, and stories from the classic film noir era, as different expressions of the same core ideas: lawlessness, desperation, vigilantism, loose morality, and so on.
For a more enhanced experience with your Backstory Cards sessions, we highly recommend downloading the free Backstory Cards Techniques Guide which contains tips on how to workshop answers to prompts and flesh out your setting elements and elaborates further on the basic instructions included with this purchase.
Backstory Cards help you and your friends create vibrant backstories for roleplaying games, no matter the system or genre.
Backstory Cards blend your characters and setting concept into an intriguing set of relationships and history. It’s tailor-made for games where the player-characters already know each other—from fantasy adventurers to star marines, from supernatural beings who share the same city to global-hopping troubleshooters.
The module includes interactive Journal Entries for prompt cards as well as New Tags.
Upon purchasing this module, you will receive a content key on the Download Page that can be used to gain access to the module.
