A card from a harrow deck

The Harrow deck is a sacred tool of Varisian fortune-tellers. They use this deck of 54 cards for a form of divination, possibly using the harrowing spell, to tell customers whether they should hope for the best or prepare for the worst.[1] Some of these decks are elaborately illustrated, but most of them are nothing more than paper with hand painted images. The more elaborate harrow decks are passed down through the generations. Between the heirloom status, and the powers that Varisians believe that the harrow deck contains, users of these cards treat them with respect and care[2]

The alternate use of the harrow deck is as game aid for gamblers to play the game Towers. This game is frowned upon by the Varisians who regard the harrow deck as a sacred object.[1]
