On the edge of darkness
the fire consumes air
while fueling hope

Ancient wood board with three candles

Rumors say this old plank came from a temple devoted to the sun. The dry and porous wood should be ash by now, and the candles melted away.


At the dawn of each day, they are back to full height. The flames light with a simple incantation: "Candles, spread your light." The board floats five feet from the speaker and follows them fervently into the dark.


About Wildlands Trinkets

Game masters and writers need to describe the items laying around the scene. Those descriptions aren't the main story though. So, they need to be concise. They need to be easy to access over and over, because guaranteed, you will need to share that information again when you least expect it.

The Wildlands Trinkets deck of cards are a laid out to cover that critical need of the game master. A prime example is when a player investigates a location and an item is needed to catch their eye. The front of each the card has an easy to see image with a quote, poem, or short description. The card could be mounted on a GM screen or handed to a player.


Another example is when the game master needs to come up with a quick transition to a new encounter or side quest. On the back of the card there is a more detailed description that can prompt questions about lore and history. Below that is a hook to a potential magic ability or encounter related to the item.


Have no fear of the tangents players may try to delve into, lean into the tangent with a stack of 30 cards by your side. The pack is designed to handle a wide variety of mudane items (or what appear to be mundane items...).

For writers the items let you to walk through your world. The items help prompt the story. This discovery process is powerful but sometimes needs a jumpstart. The cards are a great way to get the momentum going.

The art for the decks will be available for purchase in a digital file format (.png) and as a round VTT token separate from the physical deck. These files have a commercial use license, perfect for blogs, web sites, books, or ttrpg games.
