The Gambler[edit]

An Elf woman sits at a crowded table, slipping an extra ace into her hand. A human male throws a card with great force, slicing the flesh of a goblin mob boss. Coins clang in the hand of a Halfling as he removes his hands from a noble’s pocket, laughing with glee as he makes off with all his coin. Before the noble even realizes its missing, the halfing is long gone.

Risky Lifestyle[edit]

Charming and deceptive, the gambler has an uncanny way of always having Lady Luck in their corner. They like to roll against the odds, and sometimes even put a little “extra” into the game to make sure favor is for the gambler. Your quick wits and steady will never fail you, even with a losing hand. This nature extends even to the realms of magic as the gambler calls upon a chaotic magic that's just as random as the games they obsess over to infuse into a deck of playing cards.

While the gambler likes to try their luck, which ends up leading them to the form of magic they use, not all gamblers necessary gamble with normal tavern games. Some gamble on life and death and others just like the random unstable nature of the magic, but most find their love of luck before the magical nature behind it.

Creating a Gambler[edit]

When creating a gambler, think about why they enjoy gambling. Is it a hobby? An addiction? Perhaps its a coping method? What brought your character to a life of risk in the first place? Maybe you're paying off a debt or just don't like the thought of authority or of following society's rules.

Debt is a big part of a gambler and their backstory. Even the best gamblers have been known to rack up hefty debts in many places and to many powerful people. Think of if your character may owe anyone a debt, and if so how much is it? Who is it to? Perhaps a wealthy noble or maybe even a more powerful entity, like a demon who now hunts for its pay, whether in gold or in blood.

Card Shark[edit]

Cards aren't just a hobby they are also a defense if you know how to use them. At level 1 playing cards count as a weapon with the following properties:

You have proficiency with cards as a weapon and use dexterity for attack and damage rolls for throwing cards

Cards have a d4 damage die of slashing damage at level 1 along with the property of light and a range of (30/60)

Card damage increases as you level up as shown on the table

Cards do not have ammo for as long as you have a deck of playing cards in your inventory.

You can store the cards within your clothes and taking the card from your pocket, coat, sleeve or any other immediate area to attack is part of the attack action.

Cards don't make you look openly armed as long as you are not carrying another weapon and you have advantage on sleight of hand checks to hide playing cards on your person.

Stacked Deck[edit]

This deck isn't just a game. At 1st level you gain deck points based on your level. Aswell you get the access to a chaotic magic that can be imbued within cards. The cards number and suit changes what effect it gets when magic is imbued within. You can equip up to 20 cards into your personal deck each of which can be assigned to any number with the exceptions 1 always being the joker and 20 always being a ace, although you can only have one ace in your deck at a time and no repeated cards can be placed in your deck.

Once you make your deck you can spend a bonus action and a deck point to roll a d20. Depending on your roll you gain access to a magic card that corresponds to the number rolled, imbue it with a chaotic magic and put it into your hand. Your hand can consist of two cards total and you can take a bonus action to fold, removing all cards from you hand. Playing a card or throwing one as a attack is a standard action and will consume the card from your hand. Attacking with a magic card counts as a ranged spell attack using charisma for the attack and damage roll as well as counting as a magical weapon.

You regain your deck points and can change your deck whenever you take a long rest. However, your magic relies on chance, and you can refresh deck points by taking a standard action to shuffle your deck. Each time you do this regain one less deck point til you only refresh one deck point per shuffle. Your shuffles reset after a long rest.

Your ranged spell modifier is equal to proficiency + charisma mod Your DC for saving throws on your magic cards is equal to 8 + proficiency mod + charisma mod.

Know When To Hold'em[edit]

Sometimes you gotta be able to stand your ground and show your hand. Starting at 2nd level ranged attacks using cards or magic cards no longer have disadvantage when attacking within 5ft.

Know When To Fold'em[edit]

The best gamblers know when to quit before they lose it all. Starting at 2nd level each turn of combat you can take disengage as a bonus action.

Tip The Scales[edit]

When it all comes down to it there's always a little luck involved. Starting at 3rd level after every long rest you roll a 1d4 twice and keep their numbers as your inherent luck. These numbers can be added to or subtracted from any saving throw, attack roll, skill check or card draw you make. This can be done before or after the roll and consumes the number.

The die you roll per long rest is a 1d6 at level 9 and a 1d8 at level 18

Ability Score Increase[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Calling Card[edit]

You become known by your use of a certain card. At 14th level you select a non-ace card to be your calling card. People may thematically start to associate you with the card or perhaps even make a nickname for you based around the card. As an action you can use your selected card at without requiring it in your hand. This can only be done once every long rest. You can only change your choice of calling card during a long rest.

Gambler Archetypes[edit]

High Roller[edit]

For the high roller it isn't enough just to gamble. You need to go big or go home. High rollers life on the edge and seem to get a special kind of rush from risking it all. They are aggressive and like to always take thing to the next level. This archetype specializes in raising the risk of everything but in turn makes the successes all the more rewarding.

Up the Ante

Gambling is a dangerous hobby especially when you start to gamble with your own life. Starting when you take this archetype at 3rd level you can gamble your life for the magic you imbue into your cards. You can regain deck points without spending an action to shuffle but for every point you get back you receive a deck die of damage. This damage cannot be reduced in any way.

Reckless Gambit

Raising the stakes is the name of the game with you. Starting at 6th level you can take a gamble to overcharge your magic cards. Whenever a card rolls a deck die, you can overcharge it and roll an extra deck die, adding its number to the effect. When you do this you must make a charisma saving throw with the DC equal to 12 + proficiency mod or the spells target will be reversed meaning card effects that target you or allies will target the closest enemies and effects that target an enemy now target the gambler or, if unable to be targeted, the closest ally. Cards that can’t directly target an enemy or ally just fail and are consumed with the gambler taking a deck die of force damage from the backlash.

Double Lift

A more complex trick that can grab you a few extra cards if performed right. Starting at 11th level whenever you draw you can choose to take a chance and predict if the d20 roll to draw will be odd or even. If you guess correctly you perform a double lift and get a duplicate of the card you draw. If you guess wrong you fumble and get nothing and your deck point is consumed.

All In

Your confident enough with your magic and luck to take the ultimate gamble. Starting at 17th level you can use all in as an action. When you use it you spend all remaining deck points to draw cards from your deck. You must use all of these cards and all the cards currently in your hand in your one turn regardless of how many actions you need to do it. Cards that can only be used as a reaction are discarded at the end of the action and no cards used during All-In can't be returned to your hand by Hand of Fate.

On Tilt[edit]

The ability to control tilt can make or break a player. When on tilt people try to play harder and bet bigger to recover what they lost. This archetype focuses on recovering from situations where your backs against the wall or the bad breaks like when you fail a roll or pull the wrong card.

Loaded Dice

You learned to rig the game a little to make sure you can come back from those bad rolls. Starting when you take this archetype at 3rd level every time you roll a 1 with a deck die you regain a deck point.

Mulligan

Everyone deserves a second shot. Starting at 6th level when you draw a card you can choose to redraw but you have to take the second card. The second card still costs a deck point to draw.

Bounce Back

Your time at the table has made you quick to recover from your mistakes. Starting at 11th level all self done damage is halved. Any card that instantly reduces you to 0 hit points instead does half your maximum hit points as damage. Additionally, any time you take damage you can use a reaction to spend a deck point and draw a card.

Fired Up

The thought of losing instills you with a fury to try harder. Starting at 17th level when you fail an ability check, an attack roll, or a saving throw you gain temporary hit points equal to one deck die roll, gain 5 feet of movement (Up to a cap of 30 feet of extra movement), and you regain a deck point. Additionally you have advantage on any action or saving throw that you have already failed once within the same minute. Succeeding on any action or saving throw removes the advantage you may have from this feature and 5 feet of movement (Down to your base movement) per successful roll. The temporary hit points gained are gained after any damage is applied from any failed roll or save.

The Rock[edit]

The Rock is a type of player who doesn't play too many hands, and the few they do they do not bet or raise much. They are a safe player who likes to examine the table and move in at the right moment. They wait till they are two steps ahead and know their enemy. This archetype makes rolls and card draws safer so that your more likely to get the right card for the right situation, then once you have what you need you can find the perfect time to move in for the play.

Stoic

Reading the table is important for knowing when to make a move. Starting when you take this archetype at 3rd level you gain advantage on Insight checks to read a creatures emotions, personality, change in mood or to tell if you are being deceived.

Counting Cards

Your intuition allows you to be keenly aware of what cards may be coming next. Starting at 6th level when you draw a card you can draw twice and choose which of the two you want to take.

Cut The Deck

Half a deck means only half the risk. Starting at 11th level when you draw a card you can decide to cut the deck. This will allow you to split the table in half and roll a d10 rather than a d20 to get a card. Using the bottom half will use the cards at numbers 1-10 and using the top half will use the cards at numbers 11-20. Drawing a card while using cut the deck costs 2 deck points instead of 1.

Wild Card

In most games joker has more uses than you might think. Starting at 17th level when you draw the joker it no longer immediately plays itself for its active effect and instead can be used as wild card. The wild card can be consumed to produce the effect of any other card within your current created deck.
