Here are a selection of 10 "Burial Gift" cards to be either selected or randomly dealt out to each player at the beginning of a game to add flavor and variability. It adds upon the concepts presented in the Item Card Module, but no major rule changes are necessary to integrate it.

I like it, but that fire gem should definitely be applying magic damage IMO. If it were up to me, I'd make it more faithful to the game. Fire gem is a low level upgrade that applies magic and a modest damage boost. Also, I do like the pendant reference, but it's a shame it doesn't do anything from a board game context.

It's clearly a luck token, allowing you to re-roll one time as a disposable action.

Your card backs are slightly different dimensions than your card fronts.

The card icon shows that it equips in a ring slot. Do you see something else that suggests it is a disposable luck token?

See the image for the luck token on the player board. The card may not be disposable, but it's clearly a luck token.

The luck token is in fact the coin on the right. The pendant represents the one time power usage shown in the top left corner. That would make sense for it to allow the power usage once however without flipping your ordinary token.

I also find a Pendant unclear. Could be written in description "Works as additional Luck token".
BTW lots of work, Good job!

The lack of clarity is thematically consistent with the pendant in the video game.
