Paizo Previews Deck of Many Worlds

When you're the GM, you're responsible for everything in the game that isn't the PCs. That can be a lot of work. When you're playing Starfinder, that means you're in charge of an entire universe. And when those PCs go planet-hopping, it can be difficult to come up with an entirely unique world at the drop of a hat. That's where the Deck of Many Worlds comes in. It's designed for GMs to create worlds with just a quick card shuffle. Have yourselves a look.

From the post:

The most exciting thing (to me) about the Deck of Many Worlds is that you can shuffle up and deal millions of different worlds to prompt multiple galaxies’ worth of ideas. But for this blog, I wanted to show off how even just one of those millions of possibilities can provide plenty of different ideas, all on its own!

To that end, I’ve asked folks from all over Paizo to take a look at the world below and, using the system included in the Deck of Many Worlds, fire off some ideas about this world and what’s happening there. The attributes of this world (as determined by the cards) are: it has Earth-like technology, low magic, its residents get along relatively well, it’s got a neutral evil vibe, and religion is influential. Each author put their own spin on this combination, leaning on or subverting various aspects to tell their own story.

Of course, I’d love for you to chime in down in the comments with your own ideas and interpretations!
