Description
Join Poker Player with unique gameplay!

This is a full character mod with 87 new cards, 13 relics, and 1 exclusive event.

Available languages: ENG, KOR, ZHS(by Rita-Bernstein)

* Updated for Slay the Spire v1.1 release. I will appreciate if you report any bugs or crashes with v1.1.

Recommended for:
- People who played enough StS that wants a completely different experience.
- Those who want to play Poker in StS!
- Those who don't want to play Poker, but use them in a different manner.
- People who like the experience of crafting an ambitious deck.
- You.

Main Mechanics: Poker Cards
40 Poker cards can be put into your deck. "Poker" is a new card type with Suit and Rank.
- Suit: Diamond, Spade, Club, Heart
- Rank: 1 to 10
When you play a Poker card, it just draws 1 card.

At the end of your turn, you enter a phase called "Showdown", where you get the effects from Poker cards in your hand.
Depending on what Poker Hand[en.wikipedia.org] you score, the effects become stronger!
(If you have more than 5 Poker cards in hand, you have to discard down to 5 cards.)

Balance and Banned contents
Because of how Poker cards are played, several relics/cards are not available if you play as the Poker Player for being too overpowered or confusing.
- Relics: Snecko Eye, Centennial Puzzle, Runic Pyramid, Bag of Preparation, Pocketwatch, Gremlin Horn, Pandora's Box, Unceasing Top, Dead Branch
- Card: Deep Breath, Impatience, Master of Strategy, Mayhem, Magnetism, Violence
- Potion: Swift Potion
- 2 Events, Vampires(?) and Ancient Writings have different choices for the Poker Player.

Banning contents can be turned off in the mod config. (Main menu->Mods->The Poker Player->Config)

Also, if you play this with other content mods, some of them might be unbalanced to play with the Poker Player. However I don't want to fix or ban others' work, so just have fun with them!

Other
I recommend enabling "Display summed up damage in gold" in the settings.

See Also
If you want a character with more traditional play style, try Gatherer (my other character mod) or anything with the Character tag from Slay the Spire workshop.

Special Thanks To
HSymbol, for creating a game called "Trump Battle", which is the motive of this mod.

When a poker player has a deck of 87 cards... something here is fishy

This... works surprisingly well, good job!

5/5 Originality: Truely feels different and unique in a fun way.

3/5 Balance: the character currently is way stronger than the base champions. Suggestion: Nerf clubs damage, as there seems to be no good reason to play diamonds right now anyway if clubs do the same damage but against all enemies.

1/5 Base-game integration: The mod throws away many base mechanics. As such, it's very unique, but often it feels very disconnected. Mainly, it feels weird that weaken/fragile on you or vulnerable on enemies has barely any effect on you. This mod would be even more entertaining (and more intuitive to play) if poker damage&block would be modified by the aforementioned status effects.

@돌이 이 모드와 필요한 아이템에 있는 모든 모드들(BaseMod, ModTheSpire, StsLib)을 모두 구독하면 자동으로 다운로드 됩니다.
실행할 때는 https://steamcommunity.com/games/646570/announcements/detail/1714081669582224415 에 나온대로 "With Mods 플레이"를 눌러 실행하시면 됩니다. 바로가기로 실행하시면 이 창이 뜨지 않을 수 있으니 스팀 클라이언트에서 직접 실행해주세요.

Hi, thanks for the mod, I really enjoy it, even if the character is just too good for the moment.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but if I disable the mod temperarly, do I keep any progress I've made to unlocking The Poker Player cards and relics?
