What are the cards used for?

Ardent Roleplay uses Encounter Cards in combination with our mobile App to bring augmented reality to your tabletop RPG campaigns.

The cards function as AR markers so you can have control over where the AR models appear on your tabletop.

The cards can be printed or viewed on another screen, which can be handy if you are playing remotely online.

Allocate AR models to Cards

As GM you can choose which AR models from our catalog you would like to allocate to individual cards, essentially creating ‘Encounters’ for your players to engage with. This is done in preparation of a session using our Ardent Roleplay GM Creation Kit (desktop app).

Card Archetypes

As GM you also have the option of using the archetype icons in the bottom left of each card as narrative cues to help keep the story flowing. When you are thinking about where the story goes next, you can lay out the cards in front of you like a storyline or mix them up to randomise events.


Party Cards

See the health and status of your party in AR by viewing any Party Card. These are the horizontal cards in each suit. Ideally every player will have access to their own Party Card during a session. You can toggle between viewing the whole party or just your own character. 

You can set your own character’s health status in the player app and this will show up on the Party Card. You will also be able to see any status effects the GM has placed on any party members, such as: On Fire, Charmed, Poisoned, Frozen or Confused.

Reduce metagaming and be able to SEE when a party member is low health or on fire, just as your character would. No need to break character and ask another player their health status.
