I'm very interested in getting a chance to play this! I love stuff about esoteric knowledge and occult entities and just made a twine game about that concept. I'm gonna try to pull some friends together for it sometime

Thank you so much! Please let me know how it goes, it's my first complete little game.

I love the concept! The card mechanics kinda remind me of the oracles from In a Wicked Age

Thanks! I hadn't read or played In a Wicked Age until you mention it, but yeah, that's exactly the idea. I intentionally made them vague and with double-meanings, so I spent a lot of time on them. If I had enough of a personal art style to make cards myself, I would have made some custom to print off.
