Hand of Fate 2 update lets players make their own missions

Hand of Fate 2, the choose-your-own-adventure/Arkham brawler/RPG with cards, recently updated to give players access to its "Game Master's Toolkit".  These are the same tools the designers at Defiant Development used to create the game's quests, each a unique mix of cards and combat encounters, and are also the tools they're using to make future DLC.

As they say, "With the Game Master’s Toolkit, you’ll be able to create anything from a simple encounter all the way up to a full-fledged challenge with its own win conditions, blessings, curses and artefact rewards."

The toolkit is still in beta, however, so expect some potential hinkiness. Full details and some useful links are included in their news post announcing the update.

If you just want to check out what other people are doing, Hand of Fate 2 now has its own Steam Workshop where you'll find their creations. It'll be interesting to see what players come up with, placed one the Dealer's side of the table.

A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and Playboy.com, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
