Since I am between arcs, I wanted to do this last stand-alone, back-to-OG-d20Monkey style page before the new arc begins on Friday.

I really love the Deck of Many Things, but it is a tool of pure chaos and destruction for 99.9% of the campaigns it is introduced to.

As a player, I have gained levels, treasures, and fame, while losing everything and gaining the hatred of an archduke of hell. In short: Chaos, fun, and memories that I will always cherish.

As a GM, I hate the Deck. It ruins campaigns and it ruins characters. It can be a plague. Sure, there are some positive stories, but most of the time it ends in broken GMs, silently weeping behind a GM screen in the dark, hours after the players have gone home.
