Mystic Station Designs be running games at ICON 25 in New York, but, due to a glitch, the games were not listed on ICON's webpages( ).

Lady Kena has only done readings for the three C&S games. The Traveler games, Miniatures for Beginners and the Joust do not have readings.I have written my interpretation of the cards to the games. I use the Rider Waite version of the Tarot cards. They seem to 'speek' to me more.

Title: Holding until the Dawn
Game System: Chivalry & Sorcery the Rebirth

The party just completed a caravan escort job when they heard of a job opening 200 miles away on the cost in the harbor city of Farehold. The party began to travel to Farehold when countless undead appeared as the sunset approached. The party is being chased by countless numbers of undead believe they find sanctuary in an old keep. The keep was once the home of a powerful necromancer turned Greater Lych that was killed 10 years ago, they think. Anyway the party pursuers will not even enter the outer ward of the keep. The party begins to relax. The hollowing scream was the first and only indication that something was terribly wrong. Now the party is fighting for their lives. If only they can make it to Dawn.

The Reading: Holding until the Dawn
