The translations listed here are by Charna and by no means the only method of translating the slats. They are broken down by the elements of Fire, Water, Earth, Air.

Each slat from within the case, which drops randomly, can be broken down by many elements.

The First is by symbol. Each symbol can have its own meaning and definitions that makes it unique. Animals, objects, and herbs all have varied means in different cultures.

The Second is by color. Each slat has one of the following four colors:

  • White for Air.
  • Blue for Water.
  • Red for Fire.
  • Green for Earth.

And lastly, the final way to find different meanings for the slates is by the type of wood used in the creation. Various cultures use wood for different things and the meanings can be different.
