Verse:  OT, 1 Samuel 16:7

Text: “...For the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”

Verse Rule: EFFECT: Look at the top five verses of a chosen player's deck. Restack them on his/her deck in any order.
Sacrifice Cost: 2
Markers: Faith
Icons:   F  

It was kind of tricky finding an image for this one, but I’m really pleased with the one I found. It’s a pic of a person’s chest, or heart, but it’s not a drawing or an abstraction, but includes the dress and style of the person as well. We look at the face, the shirt, the suit, but God looks past that.

Combos, tips:  It’s actually a pretty powerful effect. You get to “look deeper”. In play, that means that you can know what’s coming, or you can bury an opponent’s good verse, or bring less valuable ones to the front.

Verse:  OT, Joshua 24:15

Text: “Choose you this day whom ye will serve… but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

Verse Rule: EFFECT: Seek: "Serve/Service/Servant"
Sacrifice Cost: 1
Markers: Strength
Icons: S  F  T

This is another really good seek verse. It could play really well in a preconstructed deck, as long as you make sure there are a lot of “service” texts available, like Helping Man, Helping God, or Which to Serve?

Verse:  OT, Joshua 1:8

Text: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth”

Verse Rule: EFFECT: You may search your deck for another chosen verse with a "Law" Marker, and add it to your hand.
Sacrifice Cost: 1
Markers: Strength, Wisdom, Law
Icons: S W    

The early books of the Old Testament are often referred to as “The Law and The Prophets”. This verse is one of the great Prophets, Joshua, declaring the importance of the Law.

Many years and lives later, the Law would become twisted and overly important, and Jesus would fulfil the law and teach its deeper meaning.

Combos, tips:  This verse could be an important part of a Law deck, allowing you to seek another Law verse. See: Love Thy Neighbor, The Ninth Commandment, others

Verse:  OT, Deuteronomy 7:4

Text: “For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the LORD be kindled against you”

Verse Rule: ABILITY: If this verse is in a non-Trials chapter, any opponent with a verse in that chapter must discard a chosen verse from his/her hand in his/her end phase.
Sacrifice Cost: 2
Markers: Trials
Icons:     T

This verse was a little bit difficult to express in game terms. I finally decided that it would cause ongoing troubles in the form of the discard.

Verse:  OT, Leviticus 19:18

Text: “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself:”

Verse Rule: During your turn, you may give this verse from your hand to another chosen player's hand. You may then set one chosen verse from your hand.
Sacrifice Cost: 1
Markers: Strength, Law
Icons: S     L

In the making of the game, we tried to a number of things that would make Seeker’s Quest be both cooperative and competitive. We wanted to reward actions that benefited your opponents by giving you benefit as well. This verse is an example of that.

Verse:  OT, Exodus 33:11

Text: “And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend”

Verse Rule: EFFECT: Seek: "Man/Men"
Sacrifice Cost: 1
Markers: Histories
Icons:    H  L

We, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints believe that God has always spoken with prophets. He did so in ancient days, and he does again, now.

Combos, tips:  This is a great verse to use to fetch up The Work of God or The Glory of God. If you have both of these in a chapter, you can close it up as a book, regardless of the icons. Having a verse like this one to get those two verses into your hand can speed up that process!

Here’s another verse from the 10 Commandments. It’s a Law verse, because, of course, Moses is The Lawgiver. There are other verses (like Know the Law) that let you seek or set Law verses, so it could be a good basis for a deck!
