We will be playing by the rules for Mysterium (2015) with standard Clairvoyancy at a medium-hard difficulty level (3 crows, 9 10 cards). We will start once 6 7 psychics have signed up.

Character – Player Color Preference mb
Choose you character/color. See the psychics list in the next post to see what colors are already claimed.
* mb Jessalyn Smith – Purple (Tarot Reading, American) purpletrain
* mb Alma Salvador – Yellow (Pendulum Divination, Spanish) yellowtrain
* mb Alphonse de Belcour – Blue (Numerology, French) bluetrain
* mb Conrad Mac Dowell – Black (Crystal Gazing, Scottish) blacktrain
* mb Madam Wang – Red (I-Ching, Chinese) redtrain
* mb Ardhashir – White (Talisman, Ottoman) whitetrain
* mb Green - The exoitic visitor from the Far East (2013 version) greentrain
* mb Any psychic any (default)

Administrative Guidelines for Game Threads for the Psychics
1) In each post, include an emoticon train in your player color so that it is easy to tell who is who. This is especially important for your final guess. Hint: click "View More Emoticons" redtrainbluetrainyellowtrainblacktrainwhitetrainpurpletrainzombie

2) Bold your final guess and include your color train. Once you bold a guess, you can't change your answer.

3) When you post ideas about someone-else's vision who has not given their initial thoughts on it yet, please put your comments in a spoiler. Once they have given their initial ideas, there is no need to continue to use spoilers.

4) When playing a clairvoyancy tokens. Indicate your color. Use the thumbs up or down emoticon. Indicate the color of the intuition token you are playing your clairvoyancy token on and the card. For example,
yellowtrainthumbsup on redtrain Nun
yellowtrainthumbsdown on bluetrain Libary
Red had previously placed their intuition token on the Nun (bolded Nun) and likewise blue has guessed Library. Now yellow is placing a check-mark token on red and an X marker on blue.

5) Help each other; this is mb cooperative. It's all about the cards and the discussion so participate in the discussion.

6) If you are going to be away from the internet for a few days let us know. We will always wait over weekends but please tell us about holidays as they are different around the world.

Hmmm. Those are the character names in the game for flavor. But if they make it look like all the positions are taken, maybe I should remove them. I'll think over that a minute.

blacktrainConrad Mac Dowell

*clomp* *clomp* *tick*
*clomp* *clomp* *tick*

Conrad paced across the wooden floor, leaning heavily against his cane. By degrees the shadows lengthened until the corners of the room faded from view.

It was the gloaming - that brief time between night and day when the wind across the moors held its breath. Fingers of mist reached out from the reeds. The buzz of insects clashed with croaks and an occasional splash.

The things that warmed themselves by the sunlight still felt safe.

The things that hunt by night began to stir.

Conrad stopped and leaned in close to a mirror, examining the dark circles beneath his eyes. Five letters were sent. Only three replies. Only three. He needed five. All five.

Maybe they were coming anyway. Ardhashir never wrote in any case. The crazy Turk had some notion that his script could be used by certain powers to track him.

Conrad flinched when the room's lamps sprung to life with unearthly buzz, chasing the shadows back into the walls. Yes, the circles under his eyes were more pronounced each day. Was he really doing this on Hallow's Eve? Did he have a choice? An accord must be achieved, and soon.

Fiddling in his waist pocket he pulled forth a crystal attached to a silver chain. He held it between himself and his reflection.

For some minutes he attempted to peer through it, as if it were a window. Soon he perceived the mirror - no, the distorted image of the mirror - through the charm. And as his vision bored through the cloudy veils, he perceived the mirror more as the surface of a still pond - reflecting and yet... hiding something deeper. Soon, he saw the shadowed image of the charm - or a different charm? - and beyond that...

a thrice distorted eye watching him. Was it within him, or with out? He could not tell. He had seen it many times before. But never so easily.

It wasn't even attempting to hide anymore.

A thud snapped him from his trance. He heard muffled voices in the foyer. The first of his guests had finally arrived.

So, it was true. The... *thing* had followed him even to Warwick Manor. He was sure it would try to interfere with the seance. Ruffle the veils between the worlds. Interfere with attempts to communicate with the more benign spirits in question. But Conrad's options were running perilously low.

They would come because they were his friends. But he had never told them that he was putting them in peril.

At the sound of approaching footsteps he turned, adjusting his tie as if he hadn't a care in the world, as the first of his guests stepped into the room.

"Ah! Welcome! And an auspicious Hallow's Eve to you!"

I'll fit you both in! I can't think of any reason we can't have 7 psychics, except the limitations of the physical game pieces.

Time to get this started! I'll post the cards in a bit...
...Then figure out a deadline for the first hour (probably 2 days sounds reasonable, I think)

The game has started!

You enter the house, and immediately sense a presence. The door slams closed. You hear a clock strike BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG ... BONG. The lights dim, fade to darkness. It is now pitch black in here. You can see nothing. But wait! Images are forming in your heads, a huge muddle of people, places, and items somehow associated with this house. Study them well. They are already beginning to fade from your mind. Which ones are important? You have until dawn to figure this out! That is, if you want out of here...

Please see the above post for the cards.

The clock strikes one. It seems louder than before. New visions form in your heads. Comparing notes, you realize each of you has a different vision this time! What do these visions mean? How do they connect with the previous ones? Hurry! The ghost is waiting...

Remember, post your thoughts about your visions and other people's visions in spoiler tags, so everyone gets a chance to interpret their own visions independently.

Please see the 1:00 post for your visions.

You have 2 days from NOW. (Tuesday 2 November @ 8:00pm BGG time)
