Original Character Harrow reading (role card is The Eclipse) for “I seek the Power of the Harrow deck.” The Demon Lantern was drawn to interpret the past. Misaligned, it could represent that I have already encountered the way to the Harrow’s Power. The Teamster in the present represents the other’s on my team.

The prophecy signified great change was to come to Ravengro. Loss and emptiness will come upon the land; the world will make no sense. Clarity, however, could come from unlikely places. “Those that we Fear the most shall be our Salvation.” Ever since this reading, Orchid has strived to prepare herself for the dangerous events to come…
