Review of Arium: Create

On 52 pages, the principle of Arium:Create is explained in detail. The authors emphasize that it is a collaborative process and that we are building an Arium by mutual agreement.

The effect will last a number of rounds depending on the wisdom modifier. Drawing a card is an action.
