Admittedly, I am a harsh critic. If I am presented with a sloppy product, I won't even finish reading it (no matter how good the material might otherwise be). I didn’t finish reading Cards & Quests.
I don't trust authors who can't spell, allowing too many typos, and who use "insure" when they mean "ensure." If a writer can’t edit his work, he shouldn't sell it.
The introduction explains that you are playing a fantasy RPG, but it does nothing to orient you to the setting, nothing to explain the kinds of characters available. Nevertheless, immediately after the short intro, you leap right into character creation. It's like creating a character in a vacuum. It's a stark experience and utterly uninspiring.
Then you're told you need a character sheet. I have flipped through this PDF backward and forward. I can’t find one character sheet. And there’s no index at the back of the document. An index would have been super nice.
Without a character sheet, I scoffed and exited out of my PDF of Cards & Quests. I am insulted by the product. I consider it ten bucks down the toilet.
Oh, and by the way, if you're new to roleplaying games, DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. You won't have any idea what's going on. It is apparently written for experienced gamers only. Would have been nice of the author to let us know beforehand.
