The Herald

Air, Waxing Crescent (3)

Keywords:

News, outside input, distant influences

Reversed Meaning:

News may be too late or unimportant, incorrect focus

Basic Interpretation:

Standing solid on a windswept plain, a Roman Centurion looks upon those who have come to hear his words. The Herald represents those influences from afar that effect us all. Perhaps he bears tidings of importance, news of a war, or simply reports of far-off affairs.

Objects:

A letter, a trumpet, a standard, a royal seal.

Plot Suggestions:

Dire news arrives with consequence for everyone; a vital message must be delivered immediately to halt a grave injustice; the veracity of an important message is being questioned and the messenger's identity cannot be confirmed.
