Mr The Nilbog
Crystaline Palace of the Mind
Set 1 of the Xiri Block
The plane of Xiri is full of contrasts and contradictions. The fortunate and the gifted pursue transcendence of the physical, even as the luckless and the forgotten scrabble and claw to survive day-to-day. Fantastical mental powers are granted to mindless beasts. In a world where dreams and reality collide, many are finding it increasingly hard to make their visions reality. Indeed, those born without the gift of psionics, known as the "Lightless", make up a floundering underclass. Some scorn them. Some pity them. Some ignore them. No one wants them.
The Lightless have lived in fear and despair for generations, relegated to slums and menial labor. Their lot so it might remain. But establishments exist to be challenged, and preconceived notions to be disabused. What can the inhabitants of Xiri say when a woman without a trace of psionic ability begins performing grand feats for all to see?
It could be that a new paradigm is in the making, but even a tiny bit of chaos will shatter a fragile crystal...
Update: Well, I added artist credits. Sorry about that. I also took this chance to try to improve the cards with the criticisms I have gotten so far. Thank you all.
