Acquisitions Incorporated® Trading Cards™ are another ingenious invention of Ominifis Hereward Dran, designed to both promote and capitalize on the popularity of the brand. Cards can be found in possession of children, speculators and a few hard-core adult collectors across the realms.
Cards come with artwork of the Acq Inc employee and a short biography. Some cards have alternative art and/or a foiled ‘shiny’ appearance which increases the rarity and value.
To generate a random Acquisitions Incorporated® Trading Card™ card, roll 1d12 and 1d20 and check the following tables. If the card is found outside of a pack, add an additional 1d10.
|1d12||Featured Person||Base Price (cp)|
|12||Jim Darkmagic III||10|
|1d20||Card Modifiers||Value Multiplier|
|1 - 11||None||-|
|12 - 17||Alternate Art||x3|
|18 - 19||Foiled||x10|
|20||Foiled, Alternate Art||x25|
If taken directly from a pack, the card will be Near Mint unless particular care is taken. A cruel DM may wish them to make a Dexterity Check to keep the card Mint whenever it is handled.
If found outside a pack, roll on this table.
|1d10||Card Condition||Value Multiplier|
|2 - 3||Poor||x1/4|
|4 - 7||Fair||x1/2|
|8 - 9||Near Mint||-|

Most collectors keep their cards Near Mint, but a few deal only in Mint cards. Depending on how long they have been collecting determines how many cards they have for trade.
The table below shows how likely it is that a collector will have the specific card someone is looking for. Roll 1d100 and if the result is equal to or less than the percentage value then this collector has the card for trade.
|1d10||Type||# Cards||Basic||Alt Art||Foil||Foil Alt Art|
|2 - 3||Amateur||5||21%||12%||4%||2%|
|4 - 7||Casual||10||37%||22%||8%||4%|
|8 - 9||Fan||20||61%||40%||15%||8%|
