You Decide! #8: The Duality Mask

We'll be running this series through You Decide #10, 
so that you can have a complete d10 set of  people, places, and things.

You Decide #8

In You Decide posts, we create new Vision Cards together! The Everwayan shows you an image, provides a brief framing statement, and draws three Fortune Cards, and one or more Inspiration Cards

Then, we ask 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:

"Ceremonial Mask" (Painted Wood), Pacific Northwest, Canada
Obsidian Arts exhibit, Pillsbury House, Minneapolis, MN

Frame: The image is of a Ceremonial Mask of painted wood. The mask is topped by bleached horsehair. It has a split image: much more human on one side, much more abstract and lively on the other.

Fortune Cards:
  • Virtue: The Defender, Reversed - Peril
  • Fault: Drowning in Armor - Protective Measures Turn Dangerous
  • Fate: The Phoenix - Rebirth vs. Destruction

Inspiration Cards:
  • I drew the Inspiration Card Crossroads for additional ideas. You can click on the image below to expand it.

    • The card's Archetype is Choice
    • Its Event is New Choice;
    • It's Trait is Flaky.
    • The d3 roll for the card is 3, which means that if the mask has a power, that power is frequent, powerful, and versatile.
  1. What realm did the mask come from? Who brought it here?
  2. What is the nature of the Ceremonial Mask's duality? Who or what does the user become when wearing it?
  3. What power does the Ceremonial Mask have? Is it as dangerous as the Fortune Cards suggest?
What are your answers? You Decide!
