I have decided to go with the "Fudge" card system for Castle Faulkenstein. The system will work as follows.
Everyone will bring their own deck of standard unmodified(Shawn) 52 card poker deck.
We will stick with the skill system from the book. (suits and levels will remain the same)
During an action the player will flip the top 4 cards from his deck your base level will be your skill level.
Off suit same color= minus
Off suit Off color = blank
Joker counts as +2 and is considered In suit
Levels off success will remain from the book as follows
Fumble = 3 below challenged drop. in other words if you need a excellent result an average or below would be a fumble.
failure= -1 to -2
Standard success = tie or +1 result
Full success = +2 to +3 result
High success = +4 result
