Shrine

Shrine

At the start of the first encounter here ask:

What do you honor at this shrine?

Learning this place’s name unlocks:

Whom do you serve?

An Honored Place

Make an offering to gather awareness.


Your family likely erects small shrines at several important places through their territory. It might have begun when something important happened there generations ago, or one of your ancestors might have set it up to mark a place that played an important role in her life. This card gives you an opportunity to define a good deal about your family’s religious beliefs. Do you have gods that you worship? How many, and how do you relate to them? Do you instead focus on your relationship to your ancestors, or to other-than-human spirits, or both?
