ENNIE 2011 Judges Choice Award Winner

UK GAMES EXPO Best RPG Nominee 2012

Fortune’s Fool is the ENnie-award winning role-playing game that uses the Tarot deck instead of dice! Set in a fantastic version of Renaissance Europe, Humans, elves, goblins, and more cross swords and cast spells in the courts of Paris and along the canals of Venice. One week, you might battle monsters on the icy slopes of the Swiss Alps. The next, you might find yourself rescuing Shakespeare from a rehearsal of King Lear!

Whatever your adventure, success or failure is determined by the Fate Deck. Will your next draw be Strength, giving you a devastating blow, or will The Hanged Man spoil your attack? Perhaps The Tower will menace the table, or maybe The Fool will turn everything on its head. And somewhere in the deck lurks Death itself, waiting to claim its next victim. So set down your dice, pick up a Tarot deck to give Fortune’s Fool a try!

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
