What follows is a description specific to this deck.
Keeping track of things in a role playing game can be tedius. In Covert Ops, initiative is handled pretty easily; everyone rolls a number of dice equal to their INIT score and chooses the highest one and presents it proudly for all to see. But then the turn begins, and people start rolling dice everywhere. Ability checks, skill checks, resistance checks... eventually, people forget which die on the table represents their initiative.
That's where this deck comes in. It is described in the GMs Operations Manual. Simple deal out a number of cards equal to each operative's INIT score and let them return the ones they don't want to you. Then it's as easy as glancing around the table to see who's next. The cards stand out against the plethora of dice being tossed about, and won't get lost in the action.
Included are two special cards: Wild and Skip. Those with INIT scores higher than 1 won't have to worry too much about getting a Skip result, because they get to choose which initiative card they're dealt that they wish to use for the turn. But who doesn't want to be Wild for a turn, acting whenever they wish even if it interrupts or cancels someone else's action?!
The core rulebook includes a print & play version of the initiative cards, and you can also find that same print & play set as a free digital download above. But those Avery Business Cards are a bit rough to shuffle and they wear quickly.
