Greetings traveller, welcome to the Island. I was waiting for you. My name is Oracle, and I have great stories to tell.

I can tell you about Alpha and Omega. Past and Future. And if you are one of the 1000 chosen ones, I will tell you the story of Infinity, Apeiron.

I don't want bore you: all of my stories will be different.

Behind the scenes? All is different there, as well.

Sit down, Traveller. Let me start from the beginning of the story...

The island of the Taurus. The city of the Owl. A great war...

The Emissary God knows everything. He’s the protector of the travellers. He will may protect you as well?

The God of the Sea is angry. He expected a sacrifice from the Taurus King. His curse will be Love. And the Problem will arise.

The Goddess of Love is behind everything. She’s playing a game, and she does not care. She caused the Problem, and she will solve it.

The Taurus King is furious. His Queen is unfaithful, his firstborn died. And he has a huge Problem he can’t solve.

The Taurus Queen is in love. But she can’t have what she want. The King of the Labyrinth has an idea.

The Problem is a Monster who needs blood. Is not his fault. He born that way. Half man, half beast - A huge curse for everyone.

The Princess with the Red Thread is the Solution. She’s in love with the man who’ll kill her brother. She will trade his life with betrayal.

The problem is solved. The Sun has arisen. Someone is imprisoned in its own Labyrinth. And the hero will betray his Love.

The God of Wine is watching. And he’s having fun. In the end, he will have the Princess.

The Goddess of Wisdom is sad. She protects heroes, but she’s disappointed. Too much blood, too much betrayal.

The God of Sun is beautiful and hot. He will destroy everyone that will go close to him.

The Owl Queen raised her son alone. She told him he’s a son of a King. And if he was the son of a God?

The Taurus Royal family lost three sons. Two murdered, one kidnapped. They are preparing for vengance, but it's worthless.

She betrayed her brother. Her lover betrayed her. Both of them are suffering, because the same hero.

Everyone has an immortal spirit, who lives forever.

The Prince of Owl has an heroic spirit. Everyone will remember his valor forever. Brave and cruel beyond limits. He's my hero, as well.

The Owl King is proud, but scared. His son is risking his life. If he doesn't survive, the depths will take his soul.

The Prince of Labyrinth had a short life. But his ambition will be immortal. Not wise, but brave.

The King of Labyrinth is a true genius. Everything and everyone is connected to him. Yes, Traveller, he's the one.

The Taurus Prince's death caused the war between Taurus and Owl. He was valiant, but another hero clouded his reputation.

Taurus King will be furious for eternity. He was the most powerful man, but he couldn't do anything against a Genius and an Hero. His spouse will be forever ashamed.

The God of War was watching from a distance. He wanted more violence, but his sister was keeping him busy. Love, or Wisdom?

The God of Lightning is the God of Gods. Powerful, crazy and without limits. Many are his sons.

The Goddess of Faith was betrayed a lot of times. But she always had vengance. Poison and snakes are her favourite weapon.

The Problem was solved. Imprisoned by a genius, betrayed by his sister, killed by an hero. Now his human soul is finally free.

The Solution is happy, now. She forgot everything, she stands by the God of Wine. She will be remembered as a Goddess as well.

The final gift from the God of Lighting. This time, Traveller, you're allowed to open it, if you re brave enough.

Pandora's Box is the final reward:

  • 2 Limited bricks of Dedalo: 4 Dedalo Apeiron, 10 Dedalo Alpha, 10 Dedalo Omega (retail value after Kickstarter ~ 500€)
  • Secret Gift from the Oracle (retail value ~ 40€)
  • Extra add-ons and gift - will be added to this list when unlocked
  • Pandora's Box include 2 Dedalo Dracmas
  • Pandora's Box include 5 Oracle Extra Cards
  • Pandora's Box does NOT include uncut sheets

Alpha and Omega - Past and future. Some will have glory. Others will lose everything...

The King of the Labyrinth built an impossible prison. But he didn’t solve the Problem, now. But he will, eventually. But he will lose his son.

The Prince of the Labyrinth has huge ambitions. He’s young, he want to fly high. But if your desires are too much, the Sun will burn you.

She was a slave, he gave her wings. No one but me will remember her.

The son of the Taurus King was a Champion. No one could overcome him. Envy killed him in the city of the Owl.

The Owl King saw a black flag, and he killed himself. There is a Sea who bears his name. His life was the price of betrayal?

The Owl Prince is a dark knight. He’s strong and brave, but betrayal flow in his veins. He lost his white flag, but he has a black one.

Here is the list of items you can add to your pledge. If want to add something, just edit your pledge and add the amount of the extra items you want indicated in the table below. Send me a PM if you need assistance.

Gods Extra Cards

The God of Arts is young and handsome. He's my voice and my master. He's very close to the God of Sun. Are they the same God?  

In the end all the Kings, Queens and Heroes will visit the reign of the God of Death. He lives in the darkess, with his fierce dog.

The Goddess of the Moon is wild, but chaste. She loves nature and hunting. Her twin is the God of Arts, and they both solve problems with an arrow.

We have unlocked the extra cards inside the decks. If you haven't recognized them already, in Alpha we'll have Apollo as JoS, in Omega we'll have Artemide (Artemis) as the QoS and in Apeiron we'll have Ade (Hades) as the KoS. 

Those cards are a free upgrade and will be included directly inside the decks.

Oracle Extra Card

I walked on your side through the Labyrinth, and told you a lot of stories. However, you just heard my voice. Now it's time to reveal myself.


This card will be a gift to Kickstarter backers and will be loose (outside the decks). it's not available as add-on, here is how you can have it:

  • if you have at least for 3 decks of any kind, you will recieve 1 Oracle Extra Card. Even the new €33 pledge level with three decks will do. 
  • If you have at least 6 decks of any kind, you will recieve 2 Oracle Extra Cards. If you have a single Trident, add +36€ USA / +46€ WORLD to add 3 decks. 
  • If you have at least 12 decks of any kind, you will recieve 3 Oracle Extra Cards. If you have a double Trident, add +61€ USA / +67€ WORLD to add 6 decks. 
  • If you have a Pandora's Box, you will recieve 5 Oracle Extra Cards.

Dedalo Dracma

Dedalo Dracma is unlocked and it's available as add-on. If you want one, add +13€ to your pledge. The coin will be 2", made by brass with Antique Gold finish, and it will show princess Arianna on one side:

and the fierce Asterione on the other:

I'll probably produce around 150 Coins, I'll order more if the request will be high. I won't print it again and, as always, the unsold coins will be sold on www.thirdway.it at a higher price.

Uncut sheets

Due to some requestes, I decided to make uncut sheets available as add-ons:

  • +30€ (+45€ intl.) for a Dedalo Alpha or Dedalo Omega Uncut sheet
  • +60€ (+75€ intl.) for a Dedalo Apeiron Uncut Sheet
  • +90€ (+105€ intl.) for all three the uncut sheets (Alpha, Omega, Apeiron)

All the non-limited add-ons will be for sales on www.thirdway.it when the campaign is finished.

Risks and challenges

The deck will be printed with Expert Playing Cards Co.
It's a standard procedure and should go smoothly. This is my fourth Kickstarter and I already worked with EPCC for Evil Deck, Delirium and my Omnia Projects.

All the layouts are approved and ready to be printed when the campaigns ends.

I am located in Italy, and I can't do the fulfillment directly: I'm using a professional fulfillment center, Gamblers Warehouse. They have already shipped a lot of Kickstarter decks and have a lot of experience in this field.

Of course problems might happen. I can't control other people actions, but I'll follow every step of the process to avoid problems and I will keep everyone updated.

All the elements shown could be changed and improved. Printed colors could be different from the ones you see on your screen.
