Deckades™: Jazz Era Story Prompts

Errata: https://forms.gle/uaaBq1gYAJPrcVUw9


Draw one Story Hook, at least one Antagonist and at least one Character and Location. Create a short introductory scene based on the Story Hook, featuring one Character. Let the players’ reactions guide what happens next. Use Encounters, Characters, Locations, an additional Antagonist as needed to keep the action moving. Give out Loot as rewards or clues to help the players progress. 

Most cards have positive (+) and negative (–) traits. +s are strengths or traits that benefit the players. –s are weaknesses or traits players can exploit. The more signs, the stronger the benefit or penalty (– is a milder penalty than – – – –). You decide when they apply.
