The Poker Player

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)

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
There are 40 Poker cards. "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[] 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, Art of War, Ink Bottle
- Card: Deep Breath, Impatience, Master of Strategy, Mayhem, Magnetism
- Potion: Swift Potion, Snecko Oil, Distilled Chaos
- 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)

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

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

Special Thanks To
HSymbol, for creating a game called "Trump Battle", which is the motive of this mod.
Scavenging Mechanic @ twitch, who helped playtesting this mod a lot. I forgot to mention him here for a long time. Sorry for that!

@헤르뽀뽀뽀 안녕하세요. 제가 도박꾼의 형상의 등장 확률을 따로 조절하지는 않았습니다. 만약 확률이 바뀌었다면 버그일텐데요, 통계상으로는 문제가 없어보이네요.

몇판째 도박꾼의 형상이 포션 외에선 아예 안나오는데 혹시 확률이 조절됐나요?

@旅渚 Oops, it was a silly mistake of mine. Thanks for the report, and it's fixed with the v1.0.7 update.

Ah sorry for my carelessness, I have tested without other mods again and found it's due to Broken Clock, not Nilry's Codex.
