Zoroaster's Telescope

Unique tool for divination from the 18th Century
Zoroaster's Telescope is a divinatory system created in the late 1700s by André-Robert Andrea de Nerciat. A collection of 112 hexagonal tokens referred to as "the Urn" include the representations of two principles (Sisamoro/Ormuzd - infinitely good; and Senamira/Ahriman - malicious evil), two intelligences (Sallak - a guardian angel, and Sokak - an evil genius), nine planetary intelligences, and the numerals 1 through 99 which are each ruled by one of the angels associated with the 28 Mansions of the Moon.

A subset of tokens, never more than 37 in one reading, are drawn from the Urn and arranged into the form of the Great Mirror. The tokens are then interpreted using a combination of factors including numerology, astrology, planetary associations, angelic associations and chronological factors built into the Great Mirror's structure.

The game does not come with packaging. The Great Mirror comes folded and will fit neatly inside of a notebook. A medium parts bag serves as "The Urn," the receptacle from which tokens are drawn.
