From the introduction:
There are two separate small decks of cards, one for the Hound and one for the Hounded. Each player shuffles their deck into a draw pile, and draws the top 3 cards into their hand.
Also, a sheet of paper is placed between the players (from now on called the central sheet) for writing down each character’s attributes and other information regarding the story including locations explored.
The game requires custom cards to play; the cards are provided as text but not as print-and-play components.
