The Citadel Oracle Deck: A Fantasy Archetype Oracle
The Mind's Eye II
At the top of a cliff stands a city. White stone walls gleam in the sun, and banners snap lazily in the breeze. This is the Citadel, home of fates and possibilities, host to remarkable people whose own stories provide an insight into the nature of humanity itself... From best-selling author and illustrator Fez Inkwright comes The Citadel, a fresh take on oracle decks that is seeped in the magic of fantasy literature, Tolkien's Middle Earth, and tabletop gaming - a truly unique combination of storytelling and cartomancy! Each of the 60 cards in this deck represents a person living within the Citadel. The guidebook describes different scenes that the reader will encounter while travelling through the city, including the stories of each character and the interpretation of each card.
Beyond cartomancy, The Citadel can supplement tabletop role-play games, generating new worlds, characters, and encounters for fantasy gameplay.Utilizing a similar tempera-on-papyrus style that she used to create the Egyptian Tarot, illustrator Silvana Alasia presents an inspiring oracle that captures the mystical feel of ancient Egyptian art. With a palette of primary colors, Alasia depicts gods, such as Ra, Amon-Ra, Horas, Nefhti, Thot, and Hator in addition to hieroglyphs and other symbols. This deck includes cards that embody creation, enlightenment, wholeness, stability, and more.
