Von Blonde Beer,

Do you want to add some more magical spice to your games?
Using our latest Supplement, you can get some cool new cards to play with!

How to Use this Document
Flux Cards is a supplement intended to add depth and variety to games of The 9th Age: Fantasy Battles, while providing additional opportunities for narrative play. As such, it may not be ideally suited for tournaments or other type of competitive play. We recommend that you discuss with your opponent before the game and reach an agreement whether or not to use the contents of this book.

What are these Flux Cards?
The introduction of flux cards and the veil token mechanic to define the magic phase was a key change to the 2.0 version of the ninth age rules. As has been noted by many members of our community, the cards open a lot of design space and options for modifying the game or exploring different magic phases, particularly vis-a-vis games of different sizes or with different numbers of players.
A group of staff members in the project noticed this and came together to design some alternative sets of flux cards, to
give players some additional tools and options for playing the game the way they want, or to just spice things up with something different for a bit of fun.

Five alternative sets of flux cards have been created and presented here: (A) Grand, (B) Warband, (C) Free
For All, (D) Dark Gods and (E) Sorcerous Storm. These sets can be picked up and used with minimal modifications to the core rules.

When and why should I use them?
The key thing to remember is that these sets are an auxiliary product created by the 9th age project to improve and broaden your (the players') gaming experience, so the bottom line is to use them whenever and where-ever you and your opponent agree to use them.

You should also feel free to modify them to
suit the needs of your own gaming group. Maybe if you come up with some great modifications of your own, consider sending them in to the 9th scroll!
