Now here's where the interesting bit comes in. I need contents for the cards. There should be three different kinds, as follows:A Deck of Conjuring is a pack of 3d10 cards made of what appears to be ordinary pasteboard. The face side of each card contains a very realistic image of an object of some sort. When you speak the magic word and throw down one of the cards, it seems to catch fire and then transforms into the thing depicted.
The cards in a Deck of Conjuring are selected by rolling percentile dice on the table below. Duplicate items are possible (a Deck of Conjuration may have two or more of the same things).
The Deck must be kept together; as long as two or more cards are together, they are "stable," but any single card kept separate from the Deck has a chance equal to 1-2 on 1d6 of disappearing each day. However, the chaotic magic of the Deck is such that it randomly shuffles itself; each time a Deck having more than 3 cards is consulted, the owner must spend a full round looking for the correct card.
The object conjured persists for 3d6 hours, and then disappears without a trace.
Common cards represent useful but very ordinary items.
Uncommon cards represent less ordinary things, but still not magical items.
Rare cards represent the really interesting stuff... living creatures, minor magic items, etc.
There is no requirement that an item's use be obvious. A wand on a card doesn't reveal its ability; the character who uses it will have no idea what it does.
Here are some examples:
[C] A 10' section of ladder.
[C] A lantern, already lit.
A feast, with a roast goose, several vegetable dishes, a pitcher of ale and a pie.
[R] A heavy warhorse, with saddle, bit, and bridle.
[R] A door. When activated, it becomes part of the nearest wall, providing an opening up to 10' deep. If 10' isn't enough to pierce the wall, the space behind the door becomes a 10' square room. When the card's duration expires, any contents in the room will be ejected through the door before it disappears.
[R] A longsword +1
Once we have enough stuff to make an interesting table, I'll put together a supplement.
PLEASE, try to think of some ordinary things as well as weird stuff.
