The Parlor - July 2009

You've just found yourself standing in a dark, smoky room. The only illumination comes from a single oil lamp hanging above a small, round table which is covered in velvet. There are two chairs: one on the far side of the table, set to face you; the other on the side nearest you, pulled out slightly as if inviting you to sit.

The walls are draped with more velvet, and lined with low shelves containing an assortment of crystals and gemstones that sparkle dimly in the lamplight, as well as small statues of various figures, none of which seem familiar at first glance.

On the far side of the room, you can see a beaded curtain, though whatever's behind it remains shrouded in darkness. If you look behind you, you'll see a plain wooden door.

After a moment, you'll notice that the smoke swirling through the room has a distinct scent... Incense, maybe, or cigarette smoke.

There's a small, hand-lettered sign on the table, facing you.

Please have a seat. The Oracle will be with you shortly.

You have just found yourself standing in a room, swathed in velvet, with assorted shelves lining it. The room is quite dark and smoky. Do you smell incense? Or maybe cigarettes? Resting on the shelves are assorted crystals, spheres, gemstones, and statues, and the only light comes from a single oil lamp sitting on a table in the center. There is a beaded curtain directly in front of you, leading to a dark area that you can't see into, and along with the small, round table, covered in velvet as well, there are two chairs, one facing you on the far side of the table, one facing away from you on the side nearest to you. If you look behind you, you'll see a plain wooden door.

There is a sign sitting in the center of the table. Written in neat script, in a dark pen, it says "Please have a seat. The Oracle will be with you shortly."

Taken Characters - Cards

OUTDATED: This information is here for reference only. Please visit the new site for up-to-date information on the game.


Here is the list of taken characters by cards. Although players choose their characters' suits, the mods choose the cards within the suit for them. They will try to match characters to cards based on personality, but if a suit starts filling up, they might have to take whatever's left.
