The Oracle. Surrounded by a small garden there is a telegraph station operated by a smartly dressed old man. Visitors can send a question that will receive an answer after a short while. The GM can prepare the Oracle’s answer before the game by making cut ups from newspapers, magazines and books. This cryptic utterance is a kind of Rorshach test, clues to the true answer to the characters question can perhaps be discovered by their effort to interpret the oracle. The GM can give the players a little push in this direction by letting the operator ask what the oracles answer means to the characters. But if the characters attempt to make the operator interpret the oracle the old man only laughs and says that he does not understand such things, he is content to tend to his garden.
