A fiery apparition stalking the college library. A space-faring circus. Murder on the Reykjavik Express. These are adventures you could have playing StoryCards, but you won't: you'll create your own.
StoryCards is a roleplaying game that is played from start to end in four hours or less, with no prior preparation. It uses a special deck of cards to inspire creativity, enabling you to quickly create richly detailed characters and adventures for a setting you invent together. And it uses minimalistic, common-sense rules to keep the adventure moving.
The cards are inspirational tools which can be used in any game, any genre. As a gamemaster, you can flesh out complex NPCs in a few minutes with rich personality, goals, and backstory. As a player you can use them to create new characters, or bring life to old two-dimensional heroes. During play they provide quick inspiration, and players can use them to help each other perform amazing feats, or even to tweak the storyline.
If you want to infuse creative energy into your roleplaying, become inspired by StoryCards, and take your story in a new direction.
