Quick Question, how re-playable is it ?

Are the same set of cards always used ?

Hi Alan,
There are ten Acolyte cards; at the start of the game four of them are randomly chosen to be the four Keepers (these are the cards that players should respond to). The order of these four is also random - one will be Keeper of Mysteries, one will be Keeper of Sacraments, and one each will be the First and Second Keeper of Scrolls.
One card from the five possible Salutation responses is then chosen, plus one of the four possible Sign responses.
That's just at the start. Over the course of the game eight new random cards will come into play that will either change the order of the Keepers, appoint a new Keeper to replace an existing one, or change the Sign or the Salutation.
And at any one time they'll be between zero and four Acolytes who have been condemned as Heretics and must be burnt.
I haven't done the maths, but I think that's more combinations than anyone could ever master.
