Under the Pyramids
As you run your hand over the tablet's surface, you can hear the whispers of long dead wizards. Their arcane words seep into your mind, pushing aside your other memories. When the whispers stop, your body is alight with arcane energy. You may impair Lore to gain 1 Glamour Spell.

Then flip this card.

Masks of Nyarlathotep
The tablet's minuscule glyphs describe a story of a wizard who traded his heart and reason for mastery of the arts and sciences. As you run your finger across the symbols, the stone cuts you, smearing a small amount of blood across the tablet's face. You may spend 1 Health or 1 Sanity to gain 1 Talent Condition.

Then flip this card.
