You Decide: Who Is The Watcher?

You Decide #3

In You Decide posts, we create new Vision Cards together! The Everwayan shows you an image, provides a brief framing statement, draws three to six Fortune Cards, and asks you to answer a few questions about the image. You flesh it out.

There are guidelines on how to play You Decide, and Everway reference information available here.

You Decide About the Image:

Rockwell Kent, endpapers for illustrated Canterbury Tales
Frame: To the left are sheep. In the center is a tree. A figure just right of center is looking at the horsemen galloping by in the lower right corner of the picture.

Fortune Cards:

  • Virtue: The Peasant - Simple Strength
  • Fault: Knowledge -Truth
  • Fate: The Creator - Nurture vs. Abandonment

  1. Who is the watcher? A shepherd? A Spherewalker? Someone else?
  2. What realm is this? What is going on in this realm? If you'd like a Virtue, Fault and Fate for the realm, here they are: The Dragon- Cunning; Trickery - Deceit; Law: Order vs. Treachery
  3. Who are the riders, and why are they in such a hurry?

What are your answers? You Decide!


  1. oops, posted this a few days ahead of schedule!

  2. 1. A treefast, beginning a ritual tarriance.

    2. Dunfell. A stoking tyranamo hungry for cellulose has offered flame to the cold folk.

    3. Wintrers responding to a plume on the horizon.

  3. @Porky: Wonderful words! I will have to find excuses to use tarriance in my games and real life.

  4. Tarriance really is a great word. There are so many out just getting lost over time.
