A deck of fortune telling cards that Mother Shipton used to spread tragedy all over England.


Ursula Southeil, better known as Mother Shipton, was an English fortune teller whose name today is linked with many tragic events and strange goings on, including the Great Fire of London, all over the UK, Australia and North America throughout the 17/18/19th centuries. Many fortune tellers used her effigy and statue. 


The cards cause whatever prediction the user makes with them to come true.


This artifact was first discovered when a man at a renaissance fair suddenly died of a heart attack while laughing after a mysterious jester approached him. After Pete and Steve arrived, a cart began moving on its own and nearly ran over a little girl, who was rescued by Steve,  and then dissappeared into thin air. Also, wizards shooting green lightning from their wands and living life-size chess pieces also began causing chaos. 

It was discovered the granddaughter of the fairs fortune teller borrowed Mother Shipton's Tarot Cards from

her grandmother and used them to predict a boy named Oswald's fortune. The fortune she predicted said Oswald would become a great hero which means the cards have been challenging Oswald this whole time. Oswald was suppose to be the one to call 911 for the man who had a heart attack, Oswald was suppose to save that little girl from that run away cart and not Steve, and Oswald was suppose to defeat all of the other creatures the cards created. Even after the cards were neutralized, their effects wouldn't go away until Oswald proved he was a hero or died trying. The cards were finally completely neutralized when Oswald proved he was a hero by slaying an evil knight the cards created.
