FRIDAY SF & FANTASY – The Deck of Numinom
(illustrations by BluebirdArt)
What would we do if we had a bit more time. Would we desire to extend the pleasures we’re experiencing or is it simply needed to complete a project more involved than anticipated?
In The Deck of the Numinon, a Seer is using an Oracle Deck which has the power to create a series of events rather than merely foretell them. In the process, the events and characters take on their own life and ultimately the Seer attempts to use Time as a buffer, hoping that its space allows for the plan to take effect.
Like the fabled wurm Ouroboros, Time continually eats away at itself while remaining ever present, death and rebirth the constants in its turbulent passage. Aeon becomes the final test facing Cerra and the Demon, a test with no beginning nor end.
