I have to admit, I'm really excited about getting this, and yet, I really have no idea what the heck I'm even planning to purchase. I've done what others have recommended and read the forums on the previous effects. What they accomplish makes me wish I had been paying attention when they were available. Now the newest effect is here and I'm definitely paying attention. Those of you with insight into this effect, can you share any information? Can this effect reveal birth dates like Codex V? What exactly can one do with it? If it's not public knowledge, can any details be PM'ed? Thanks!

Sir,

It is indeed along the same vein as the legendary Codex V. One of the many strong effects possible with Oraculum is a date of birth reveal, but taken to an entirely new level than Codex V. Rumor has it that Bobby has created an all new method for date of birth divination, and has also included a revamped version of the method found on Codex V. I have not seen said method, or the book itself, but knowing Bobby it will NOT disappoint.

The date of birth divination possibilities are just the tip of the iceberg. Oraculum has been rumored to go so much further. We are in for something big here. I have been camping at the bit for this to be released...now I am told it should be soon. Very soon. Like this next week sometime.

Hopefully Bobby will come along and share more when we can actually order it.

Take care,

David

Thank you for the details. That was exactly what I had hoped to hear. When this releases, I'll be right there with you. I'm beginning to think Spooky should be renamed "Pasteboard Frolics" at the rate it has me producing cards. 😊

I'm on the same page as good Sir. Does anybody know roughly the price of the new release? Just roughly? What are we more less looking at?

I just heard from Bobby and THE TIME IS HERE! Oraculum looks incredible - and knowing Bobby, it will be. I just placed my order for the bundle and cannot wait to hear more!

Rumor has it that over 40 of the SEs are already accounted for and 6 of the LEs (if you count mine).

What is Oraculum?

From the mind of B. Hasbun (creator of Codex V, and the 2014 Magic Café Trick of the Year award-winner: INFERNO), comes his most powerful creation to date: Oraculum.
"...A DARK MASTERPIECE." -Luca Volpe

Oraculum is a mysterious book of 366 date-of-birth profiles, riddled with spellbinding fortunes, dark forewarnings, and an unbreakable connection to the all-knowing Tarot. Its pages are graced by several charts, images, and illustrations- all hand drawn by an expert artist.

It is not a book test. Among its pages is encrypted a centuries-old secret that has yet to be deciphered. Its author and title are a mystery. Its age and provenance are vague. Some say it is fifty years old, others one hundred or more. Its secrets, however, are much older- ancient, perhaps.

With a page count of two-hundred, and an approximate size of six by nine inches, Oraculum's size and weight is substantial.

Of what is Oraculum capable?
- give a detailed reading based on your sitter/spectator's date of birth
- give a personalized tarot reading to each of your sitters/spectators without the need to carry a deck (or the need to know the Tarot and its meanings- Oraculum does it all for you)
- reveal your sitter/spectator's date of birth (down to the year, if you're so bold) without anything read aloud, any questions asked, anything written down, any peeks or glimpses, any pre-show work or confederates. Minimal, and in many cases zero, memory work is required. This can be accomplished with one of three, easy to perform, unique methods embedded into the pages of Oraculum, some more difficult than others but all of them worthwhile and well-justified. Oraculum is the strongest, most versatile date-of-birth divination tool of its kind
- multiple reveal options for date-of-birth divination available (through the Tarot, through the charts, and many more ways as explained in the manual)
- the book is fully examinable and can be read from cover to cover
- many non date-of-birth divination effects are possible. Perform a few of the most powerful Tarot card routines conceivable, using Oraculum as your guide and secret weapon
- so much more. The door has only been cracked...
What is the difference between Oraculum SE and Oraculum LE?

In terms of method and effect, Oraculum SE and Oraculum LE do not differ. It is in craftsmanship and aesthetics where they part ways. While Oraculum SE is made of the highest quality materials and is absolutely gorgeous (you really have to hold it to appreciate it), Oraculum LE is in a world of its own.

With its thick, antiqued leather (true leather, not bonded leather like most leather volumes), ribbed and rounded spine, and stunning hand-marbled endpages (not simulated, printed marbling), LE commands respect and intrigue before it is even opened. LE is perfect for the distinguished performer, the avid collector, and the lover of books.

Oraculum SE is limited to one hundred fifty copies and Oraculum LE to twenty two (one for each card of the Major Arcana). Both come with their own unique certificates of authenticity and will never be reprinted.

Aside from the wonderful performance possibilities the charts have to offer, there is an easter egg hidden in one of the them. The first to unlock it and email us with the correct solution will receive a 1 of 1 special edition of Oraculum. The solution will then be forwarded to all owners.

All orders will ship early February on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Very exciting! My order is now in - I wonder if we'll receive a download link for the manual, prior to shipping?...

Interesting that it's offered aged and un-aged. I assume most orders will be for aged versions?

Aurum,

The manual will be sent along once the book ships.

The majority of orders thus far have indeed been aged. I think you will all be very pleased with the aging technique I've been developing.

Thank you for your support with this project!

*** you, Bobby Hasbun! I thought I was going to get out of this with just a LE (scratch off another available copy on the quick run down to zero) but the bundle is too good to pass up. My girlfriend is going to kill you. LOL

So excited this is finally here, and that I have another reason to break out my tarot cards!

As predicted I got in on the LE version of this effect. I am very much looking forward to this effect, and look forward to decoding it.
