I'm trying to be like to cool kids, and host a game jam on itch. Troika Tarot Jam
So come on in and shove backgrounds on one side of a tarot card. Maybe even sell them.
Why would you want to put backgrounds on a card?
1. Troika! defaults to using d6′s for everything, so random character gen usually involves backgrounds in groups of six, but sometimes getting to some multiple of six is struggle. Enter using a deck of cards.
2. You can select which backgrounds, if they are on cards, you want to include in your game without needing to make an index and/or copying them all into a whole new document.
3. You can weight the commonality of backgrounds by putting more or less of certain ones in the deck.
4. You can eliminate backgrounds as they are chosen by pulling them from the deck once drawn. No more rerolling.
5. I think cards are cool.
