This is based on the poem by H.P. Lovecraft called The Messenger. I made it because I was in a creative mood and couldn't sleep. It's still in development. It's been tested some, made changes, but not tested since.

Special Rules

Discards are played face down and cannot be looked at unless a card specifies.
