Book of many things
This accompanying 192-page book “illustrates the mysteries of the deck and provides everything players and Dungeon Masters need to use it in-game.” This includes deck usage advice, adventure locations, new monsters, character options, magic items, and organization, all inspired by the iconic deck.
