Chatting with a gypsy can be very useful, provided you have luck, money, and time.
When chatting to a gypsy, these choices will show themselves :
The gypsy reads your fortune and charges you 50 credit. The effects of this are determined by the card.
Cards with an effectEdit
|Zero of trumps||The Fool||You lose one point wisdom and 3 points of luck.|

|13 of trumps||Death||Does a Touch of death against you.|
|14 of trumps||The Tower||Gives the location of Vlad's Tower.|
|15 of trumps||The Star||"The gypsy reaches behind your head and pulls out a <name of the stone>." The gypsy pulls a precious stone out of the back of your head, based on the month as described below. There is a one in six chance of getting two gems. This will automatically identify the gem.|
|16 of trumps||The Moon||Resets and gives the current phase of the moon, changing luck to match the possibly new moon phase.|
|18 of trumps||The Judgment||"I see a quest on level <quest level>"|
|19 of trumps||Infinity||"For 10000 credit I will grant you a wish". If accepted, the next time Infinity is drawn the gypsy disappears, "I wish I wasn't here!".|
Note: For levelport or wish to work, you need credit from pawning gems. Otherwise you'll only get the message "what a pity that I can't accept gold", and nothing will happen.
The gypsy has a deck of 72 cards that is used for fortunes and ninety-nine (but not three card monte). If the deck is exhaused the gypsy will reshuffle the deck. It is therefore possible to go through the entire deck of cards to get the wish. You need 3,600 credit to go through the entire deck of cards and will also need some way to deal with the negative effects, especially the touch of death. If playing during the month of April, however, the gems received through "The Star" will always be greater than the cost of going through the entire deck, giving players the option of repeatedly going through the entire deck (refusing to accept the wish each time) to slowly collect diamonds, as well as the other positive effects.

Card which do nothingEdit
Three card MonteEdit
The aim of this game is simple: you choose a card, and the card might or might not be the right one. If you choose the right card, you win your bet in credit. Whether or not you win is based on luck and your previous games' results. You are guaranteed to win the first game you play.
Each player draws three cards at the beginning of the game. Players take turns playing cards, drawing after each turn. Non-trump and non-face cards add to the total score, with a maximum of 99, and a minimum of 0 (see below for other card effects). If your opponent cannot play a card, you win.
|Kings||Put the score to ninety-nine||Can always be played|
|Queens and Jacks||Diminish the points by 10||Cannot be played unless score is above 10|
|The Fool||Can't be played||Will stay till the end of the game in your hand|
|All other trumps||Don't do anything to the points||Always safe to play|
|All the other cards||Add their value to score||Cannot exceed 99 points if played.|
Note that the cards held in hand or played in the last game of ninety-nine will be taken out of the deck when you ask for the gypsy to read your fortune. The gypsy shuffles the deck at the start of each game.
This allows you to sell gems for credit. To successfully pawn gems, they must be identified first. The gypsy gives you the base price of the gem as credit. Gems pawned in this way are not transfered to the gypsy's inventory, but are rather destroyed. Thus it is not possible to pawn a large number of gems in the hopes of getting a wish and recover the gems by killing the gypsy afterwards.
