Yeah - similar thing to what we did. :) Even though we only used one actual character (Death) for one of the cards we still had to get permission to have the cards made as a 'one off' to go into the charity auction at the conventionand one to present to Terry as a present from the forum :D

Really liking the box and the 'seasoned' look of the cards :clap:

Wow! All this artwork is really original but these tarot cards specially caught my eye… They are great! What a pity you can’t sell them, Mr Gravier!

By the way,
would you mind if I print them in paper to show them to my mother? She likes tarots and loves Discworld so it would be a fantastic surprise! :P

My congratulations again, ;)

OMG! I'm sorry that I am just seeing this. This is so immense. You are a genius Jan. I am inspired to create something similar for my kids (I teach). If I could transform one of their favourite stories to this, it would be amazing! Right now I rely on online reading games to get them to love the written word. Playing cards is another way I can now explore. I'm going to follow bookmark this thread and read it Thank you so much.

Glad you like 'em lazecraze - just PM me if you want a set (comes with v. easy instructions on how to print etc.) or if you want to discuss anything about methodology ;)

I've also done a fantasy tarot deck for the DreamWorlds forum (which may or may not be a commercial option down the line). You can see the Major Arcana for that on my DeviantArt slideshow and the minors are HERE in PDF format

I did a fair amount of online research too and found these sites useful for ideas, including looking into the history of it all :)
