If you’ve been in any conversation with me where the Deck of Many Things came up you’ll have heard me “wax poetic” about the many ways in which I dislike said item (aka the Deck of Many Campaign Endings).
That said, I’ve always been irked by most representations I’ve seen of the deck. Mostly over a nit-pick.
“Each [card] is engraved with glyphs, characters, and magical sigils.”
But every prop representation I’ve run across over the years has just included the main symbol of the card.
So this weekend I took a bit of time to draw something more in keeping with what I would expect a few cards from the deck to look like.
I’ll try to keep this going and get the full set of 22 cards drawn, and if everything works out another dozen or so unofficial additions and then set them up to be printed at DriveThruCards.
I already have two different sets of the Deck, and I enjoy giving players a shot with it. That being said, I think I’ve only ever placed it twice, and drawn from it once, in 42 years. But I’d love to see what you create, I’m sure it will be inspiring!

These are awesome. Not a fan of the deck myself. The only time I got to use it as a PC… it did not go well. When I used it as a DM, I used a stacked deck and made it come out the way I wanted.
That’s very promising!!!
One of ye olde Dragonne issues had a full tarot deck version, with the lesser arcana as well as the familiar cards. You know, if you’re ever looking for a Kickstarter project, plenty of people do 78- or 22- card tarot decks, even professionally printed rather than DTCards’ POD stuff. Hint, hint.

It’s one of those things. You don’t like something, but you like even less how no one ever does it -right-. So far your version’s looking pretty great.
