Each is inscribed with glyphs, character, as well as sigils. As soon as one of these cards is drawn from the pack, its magic is presented upon the person that attracted it, for much better or worse.

Cards must be attracted within 1 hr of each other, as well as a personality that can never once more draw from this deck any more cards than she has actually announced. If the personality does not willingly attract her allotted number (or if she is in some way stopped from doing so), the cards crackup of the deck on their own. Exemption: If the jester is attracted, the possessor of the deck might choose to attract 2 added cards.
