There's no game you can't win, and no tale you can't tell while you're doing it; no message you can't support with the fall of the cards.

Game Instructions: This will start a cover identity with Dispossessed ties and a point of Witnesses.

Unlocked with Cabinet Noir 4, 1 x The Marvellous

Locked with Cover Identity: Elaboration


A seat at the table

You start your new cover identity with no more than a name and a deck of cards. At the table, the Marvellous tells you what lies to spin. [...]

Those with you at the table drink up your stories [...] they are all convinced they have known you for years.
