Thanks very much!

I have some ideas and pictures for the Star and Death, so those would be mine, please. :)

I was thinking that the symbols in the suits should look uniform across the deck - i.e. all pentacles/swords/wands/cups shouldn't look too different for the deck not to seem a hodgepodge of styles. Or we don't really care?

Meaning: The Star represents faith and belief in one’s own skill. When someone has lost all hope, Priskil’s gentle light appears in the darkness to give the struggler something to cling to in order not to give up. The person has not yet reached enlightenment, but will eventually succeed if they have faith in the divine powers. On the one hand that can mean that a person relies on a deity, but on the other hand the person also believes in their own inner divinity. In the end everyone has to do the work with their own hands, and the Star is the first step to that epiphany.


There is another version of the picture, but I hope this one sticks to the guidelines. It's no drawing ... I actually think that because for example the race pictures are photos, we can have photos here as well. Anyway, I hope I've done everything right!

I'd like to do Death next.

Description: While this card can very well represent an actual magic user of any type and discipline, the Magician is the masculine, creative principle that shapes the world with willpower alone. He is a conduit between the mundane, earthly world and the celestial world of the impossible. The Magician brings forth the realization that endless possibilities exist in the universe, waiting to be seized.

Done! Human figures are the hardest, so I'm getting myself an easier one next.

I call the Tower. :)

First of all, I’d like to say that I think this is a great idea. I didn’t think it was possible to enrich the world of Mizahar anymore, but apparently it is. :) All the cards look amazing so far.

So, here is my humble contribution. Hope it meets the criteria.

Meaning: The Moon represents illusion, fear, and confusion of the mind. It fosters doubt and weaves fantasies within one’s conscience. The Moon presides over the nightmares and dreams of its patrons. People often rely on it to relieve their anxieties and fears. However, one must be cautious in trusting the moon, as it can often be uncertain and deceitful. If one is fortunate enough to fall under the Moon’s favor, the fears hidden in the depths of the night may indeed be dispelled and a faint light of inspiration may shine into the dark corners of the mind.

Look at all this pretty stuff! I think the Myrians need to get a little sommin'-sommin' in on this. XD

The Hierophant is an especially personal card in the Mizahar Tarot, considering the many gods that have touched their hand to its denizens. No matter what the religious beliefs of the Querent, the Hierophant will always represent the bridge between The Ukalas and the living beings of Mizahar. This card is the Ruler of all Gnosis marks, those divine symbols which connect a person to the Divine. Other interpretations see the Hierophant as the bringer of wisdom and holy teachings, and the drawing of the card can mean assistance, wise friendship in a time of need, or alliances - including marriage. It can herald a profound change to come, but also serves as a warning that the Querent should examine his or her understanding of the meaning of things. Reversed, it is often a reference to bad advice, trickery, persecution, and sometimes even a curse from the Divine.
PLEASE NOTE: Finals are over, but summer is eating my soul. As such, as of the end of June I will not be accepting any new quests/modded threads until I finish some of the ones I've already started/agreed to. My apologies for this, but I don't want to be unfair to those who have been waiting for replies!

Meaning: Easily one of the most dreaded cards in the Tarot, the Tower represents one's false certainties crumbling down unexpectedly and devastatingly. The Tower is a card of change and conflict that heralds pain and turmoil, shedding the layers of lies people weave around themselves. The wise will be able to rise from the destruction and rebuild on a solid foundation of truth. This card is associated with the Valterrian, which is a frequent inspiration for its imagery.


I may try my hand at Justice next. :)
