In a dream I saw the Cards. They were different than the cards that had been passed down to us, the images and names changed yet the feeling of the potency of their images was stronger. I knew when I woke that there needed to be a new deck, one for this new world that passed on our knowledge and this Land’s truth. So I began to make and collect the materials I needed to create what I had seen.

 

We cannot move forward while carrying the ways of the past. The old ways like the old world is unsustainable and cursed with ruin. Only by remembering the follies of the Before times can we choose a new way of living, one that leads not just forward but in to the future.

 

I have taken on the task to gather our icons and archetypes, to tell our stories and through our collective experiences reveal a new way of being. The old cards came from a world where resources were plentiful and renewal was certain. In the Wasteland, shaped by fire and cataclysm, a world with no predictable resources, where those who cannot adapt perish, there must be new cards. Cards that hold the weight and potency of our shared experience, the blood and flesh of our dreams.

 

Through gathering the lore of our survivors and teaching their strengths and failings I hope to reveal a mythic mirror that combines the mundane and the arcane, that raises characters from our streets to figures of legend. Revealing our landmarks as monuments to resourcefulness and ingenuity, depicting our mutual subconscious and giving it a voice that will lead us by showing, what once was, what is and what yet may be
