This is a combat system for those with magic deck of cards. It allows PCs to utilize their card playing skills to resolve RPG combat.
If your character has access to such a deck, you will use these rules.
A revolt or attack happens against a strong city/kingdom. All the losers of the battle that can be captured are brutally crucified along the roads that enter the kingdom to show their strength and as a demonstration of what happens to their enemies. ... a long road, decorated with hundreds of dying crucified soldiers... You see them bleeding, you hear them screaming and whispering for help. Do you really want to enter this reportedly peaceful kingdom?
