Tarot cards are generally used to try and tell the future. However, with the Fatum tarot deck that's up on Kickstarter now, you can tell the past. The past of your character you're building, that is. Having trouble coming up with an interesting backstory? Fatum is here to help.
From the campaign:
FATUM is a powerful yet easy tool designed to create full-flegded stories for your 5th Edition D&D or any other fantasy RPG characters. Although built with fantastic/ epic roleplaying game systems in mind, it’s been developed to fuel other artistic creations, whether you are a writer, a screenwriter or an illustrator.
FATUM is beautifully illustrated with exclusive artwork and carefully designed to delight game masters and players alike!
Enjoy creating new characters and their own unique stories. In no time you’ll have a full-developed chronicle for your PC (or NPC!) FATUM deck allows you to:
- Generate characters and their linked stories in a short time.
- Produce a quick yet full story for an NPC (Non Player Character) when suddendly required on the table.
- Build a character story on the fly for a game in course.
- In case of a story partially created, finish it later quickly and randomly.
The campaign is up and over its funding goal, but only had 8 days left to go.
