Deck of Many Things is dropped by Aesgareth, the gambling Cambion. This item has the potential to increase user's ability scores.

DescriptionEdit

Each card in this deck is a metallic plate, each adorned with a distinct portrait of its own. The card shimmers with power, and while each deck of many things is different, all legends agree that this kind of artifact holds great power and is not to be used lightly. The exact contents and powers of the deck cannot be known unless the cards are drawn... but once drawn, the effect on the user is irreversible. Supposedly, a deck of many things can only be used so many times until it disappears and moves elsewhere in the multiverse... for what reason, no one knows.

4th - BALANCE Edit

The card shows an old man with flaming-red hair and fiery eyes staring out at you. In his hands, he holds a scale, the small silver bowls evenly balanced. The card is clearly labeled "BALANCE."
Almost immediately, you realize that the man is the creator of the deck. The image both smiles slightly and nods to you, tapping the scale in his withered hands.
What remains of the deck of many things begins to fade suddenly... and within the space of a moment, it is gone forever.
