[Discussion] The Creation of a Mizaharian Tarot

Meaning: As the first card of the Tarot deck the Fool symbolizes a beginning, a new chance and the innocence of a newborn child. He is the reason behind a person’s actions and the potential that has yet to reveal itself. Some say that he is connected to the divine twins Kelwyn, a new drive that is given to start something different. The nature of a fool is to ignore advice from others and stay true to his own opinion. With stubborn dedication he does what he desires to do and will always continue to go his own way. The most popular meaning of this card is a new beginning and new experiences, often coupled with unknown dangers. However, if one has faith in oneself, he can face what lies ahead without fear.


Next is ... what comes to my mind. Don't know yet.

Meaning: The metaphorical opposite to the Magician, the High Priestess represents secret knowledge, spiritual and metaphysical insight, quiet reflection, and instinctual decisions. She stands for secrets that she may or may not reveal, soul-searching and introspection. She is often associated with the wisdom of the all-female Konti race. Depending on her position in the reading, the High Priestess can be Avalis the revealer or Akajia the obscurer.


Not sure what to do next...

EDIT: Scratch that. My favorite card, the Hermit.

Meaning:The Wheel of Fortune sets people the road to their fate. But that road is forked at every step and it is the Wheel that decides which path a person will take. It presents opportunities and surprises to those who watch its hypnotizing cycle. But if you are not quick enough to grab at a bit of luck, the Lady of the Wheel will move on and your opportunity will be gone. She is forever strapped to the Wheel, making choices for those who watch the wheel spin. But watching the Wheel is a dangerous game to play. Sooner or later the cycle will end and you will stumble to the end of your game.

Meaning: The Hermit is a tireless seeker of truths. He represents independent thought and the ability to search for answers within and without. The Hermit is like the Fool in his wandering, yet he has acquired purpose and awareness; dissatisfied with the shallow answers of those around him, the Hermit is introspection and skeptical investigation of reality past the immediate layer of things. He walks his own path, supported only by his staff.


I'd like to suggest that everyone save their files at the highest quality settings. In Photoshop, this means '100' quality on the slider. The file will only be a little larger and won't display rendering artifacts near the text. :)

I LOVE the painting you used for the Hermit, Tarot. One of my favorites.
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: During his life The Emperor has seen much strife and dealt with much conflict, and through it all has survived to rule over his kingdom with the wisdom time has earned him. Using this wisdom he sees through deception and leads his people with fair strategy and strength. The Emperor stands for strategy, rulership, masculinity and practicality. Above all else The Emperor is a master of his own future, one who forges his own destiny. Many people associate the Emperor with the Windoak, leading its people with the wisdom it has garnered through the centuries.
