Rise of the Runelords
Plot Twist Cards
We use Paizo’s Plot Twist Cards.
One card shall be granted from the deck at 1st level and an additional card every time your character levels up. All cards must be surrendered upon a character’s death and can’t be retained for replacement characters. New (and replacement) characters beyond first level will begin with a single card and gain the additional card every level they gain, but will not get cards retroactively for past levels.
When a card is used you may choose to use the mechanical option or one of the plot options. Roleplaying and story-telling will be expected to explain how some of the plot events come to pass. The GM reserves the right to reject a request if it would negatively impact the progression of the game, though this should be rare.
