A few more ideas for Monomyth came to me today and so I spent some of the early evening scrawling down notes and sketching diagrams and such.

For my disclosure on this or any of my post or pages… please visit my Disclosure page.

As a collaborative storytelling game, I want the game to have elements of cooperation, and so one way to minimize the (required) competitive elements is to have them be resolved randomly, or at least done in a way without giving the players a chance to strategize against one another.

It might not be particularly original, but I realized if I applied the dynamic of Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock to the elements of the Pentagram, two or more Tarot cards could be played against one another and a winner could always be determined (the Higher Arcana in this case representing Spirit).

No card can be beaten by another card that is beating a card that you also beat. Unless there’s a highly unlikely 5-card configuration where all five elements are represented, so long as one element is missing, a winner can always be determined.

Even draws are preferred, and I may have the “House” even numbers out, but there’s also an element of adding the cards together and reducing them down to a number of 1-9, so the card that is closest without going over could also be a way to determine a winner, or the “high card” between two winners as well.

But… all that aside… tonight I fell down yet another conspiracy theory rabbit hole… one I now know I may never be able to crawl out of.

Have you even heard of the Mandela Effect?

At this point I kind of wish I hadn’t. Whatever the truth turns out to be, I definitely “have it”. This thing goes deep. Schrödinger’s cat may be either Alive or Dead… but Lovecraft’s cat is freaking Undead… just take that also as a reminder of the warning ol’ H.P. gave us concerning the intrinsic ties between knowledge and insanity.

Unless you already know what it I’m taking about, I can’t condone researching ME. Leave it be. You either have it, or you’ll think it’s a joke, either way you’ll be happier for it.

If it’s already too late for you, at least know you’re not alone…
