The Deck of the Numinon
A Tales of Terranovae Novel
by GJ Scherzinger
Full Color Illustrations
With a turn of the cards, a Stone Giant breaks loose from the Granite Mountains, leaving a path of destruction through the Regency of the Stands. The fabled guard towers of Safrasco are destroyed by a sorcerous griffin, the threat of war rising in its wake. Captain Ferriman turns to a blind herb trader named Cerra Meadows in the hopes she can help him navigate the sorcerous paths that threaten the peace of the Empire.
The Cards are drawn, the cast put into play. The Deck is ruled by the majics that created it. Events take on a life of their own, reliant on the strengths and motivations of the players whose avatars are determined by the draw. The Queen of Quills represents qualities that Cerra must embrace in order to discover the identity of the Seer and locate the Cards before her world runs out of Time.

What would we do if we had a bit more time. Would we desire to extend the pleasures we’re experiencing or is it simply needed to complete a project more involved than anticipated?
In The Deck of the Numinon, a Seer is using an Oracle Deck which has the power to create a series of events rather than merely foretell them. In the process, the events and characters take on their own life and ultimately the Seer attempts to use Time as a buffer, hoping that its space allows for the plan to take effect.
Like the fabled wurm Ouroboros, Time continually eats away at itself while remaining ever present, death and rebirth the constants in its turbulent passage. Aeon becomes the final test facing Cerra and the Demon, a test with no beginning nor end.
