Fortunes: The Tarot Card Storytelling Game / $10.00

Fortunes: The Tarot Card Storytelling Game / $10.00: Publisher: Eternity Games

Fortunes: The Tarot Card storytelling game might be played after a rousing seance or during the quietest hours of the night, ideally in a room with a candle. It could be played by an eccentric family who lives in a dilapidated mansion on a hill overlooking a small town in autumn, or it could be played by a curious young couple sitting on a hay bale as a harvest festival finally winds down on a Sunday evening. However it is played, Fortunes is a game for storytellers.


This eBook includes the rules and story prompts for "The Seance," which takes place amidst the spiritualist movement in 19th Century London. Use your own tarot deck (or a deck of standard playing cards) to play. In Fortunes, you invent characters, determine important events, and shape the world.

Your story might involve a famous mystery writer, increasingly passionate about the potential existence of fairies. It might include a furious magician, desperate to disprove a wealthy medium's supernatural claims. It could introduce a vengeful mouse with connections to a secret society beneath the cobblestones or a roguish airship pilot failing to raise funds for the world's largest dirigible airship.

This storytelling game requires a deck of tarot cards or regular playing cards. You'll use this in conjunction with a list of story prompts inside the zine. This debut zine focuses specifically on a story set in 19th Century London, where the spiritualist movement is just taking hold. The game's prompts and setting will use this theme, though the ruleset is designed to function with a much wider scope.

Thanks to the backers at Kickstarter, this game also includes two additional settings: Village of Secrets and The Fairy Garden.
