MAD wrote:Wouldn't Verence be a more appropriate fool? I would have Rincewind with the Octavo on the same card as the red star from Light Fantastic. Similar to the graphic novel treatment.
The dome of the sky was covered in Pyramids and that would be a good basis for this card.
As for the lovers I don't think Carrot and Angua work here. Carrot loves the city and Angua loves Carrot but I don't think of them for physical love. I would suggest Mrs Palm and a couple of her ladies which also covers the urge to carry out a task with the advantages you take from it
Jan Van Quirm wrote:1 ~ The Magician
Mankind surrounded by nature. Endowed with enough power to manage your affairs.
Probably one of the UU Wizards but one who fits the description (Ponder? Ridcully?)
I vote for Ridcully
Who else could it be?
2 ~ The High Priestess
Sanctuary, law, woman, Mother.
Mrs. Cosmopolite in her position as Muse/Sibyl to Lu-Tze and the History Monks. Could also work Anoia into this too as she's sort of a domestic goddess
I dunno..those are minor characters. Nanny Ogg has many of these qualities.
3 ~ The Empress
Evolutionary power of fertilised nature.
Lady Margolotta (on the basis of international political clout)
Too minor a character. I'd say Magrat, since she's pretty darned earth morther fertile. And she's queen.
4 ~ The Emperor (The Ruler)
The Energy in man to give his creations a short reality.
Because of that qualification - Terry The Man (Vetinari is still in here just wait a bit )
I dunno...by your description I might suggest Wm. De Worde. After all, most of his stories have a short shelf life.
5 ~ The High Priest
Spiritual Power which conveys principles.
Brutha. Who else? The famous lasting religious figure
6 ~ The Lovers
Physical love. Urge to carry out a task with the advantages you take from it.
Carrot and Angua? LONAs?
Definitely. Good pick, although it does take them out of consideration as single characters.
7 ~ The Chariot
Material Power. Dominion over passions. Actions of a human being.
The Luggage on the basis (and basics) of carrying material trappings and in particular laundry action...
Hmmm....that's a toughie.
8 ~ Justice
Happy or painful consequences.
Lord Vetinari - just right!
Wrong. Sam Vimes. He is justice personnified. Even Vetinari must bow to him when it concerns The Law.
9 ~ The Hermit
Search of Truth. Search for patience. Prudence.
10 ~ The Wheel of Fortune
Actions in the present affected by the past.
Guild of Gamblers - maybe tie in Fate & the Lady? Moist?
You're being too literal. This is Moist all over. He's all about actions in the present being affected by his past.
11 ~ Strength (The Importance of Washing the Hands)
Fruits of labour. Ability to tell truth from lies.
Cohen or Hrun cleaning up... from a Health & Efficiency slant - strength through hygiene
Minor characters. This is a tough one. I'd say Carrot is he wasn't being used elsewhere. Or Detritus, since he strongly committed to cleaning the city of troll drugs.
12 ~ The Hanged Man
Halt or Suspension. Abandonment/Unshared love.
The gallows dummy in AM (FoC)
Giving a card to a inanimate object? Silly! I'd say Nutt.
13 ~ Death
New Start/New beginnings, even new life. Cut with the past.
Who'd you think?
14 ~ Temperance
Adapting to new experience. Reconciliation in business.
Black Ribbon and bats
More objects. How about CMOT Dibbler? True, not a protagonist, but a staple of the series. And one who is always adapting to new opportunities.
15 ~ The Devil
Slavery/selfish outlook. Licentiousness/ Robberies.
Overall we think The Auditors as a collective entity that hates life
That suggests the auditors are evil. They aren't, since they don't have moral values. Tough call here, since Pterry doesn't have repeat villains. Maybe either Teatime or a combination of Pin and Tulip? or even Wolfgang, although he is a one-book villain.
16 ~ The Tower
Danger/Setbacks/Unexpected blow. Freeing from prison/risk of serious illness.
Tower of Art - with or without the Draco Nobilis
Dorfl maybe? He's a tower of strength with an unexpected blow who freed himself from the prison of his own mind. Yeah, pretty weak.
17 ~ The Star (Pool of the Night)
Dawning of peace hope and prosperity/beauty. Cosmic Harmonies.
Red Star from LF in night sky - reflected in a body of water
How about wosshername, the heroine from Monstrous Regiment? She's creating beauty out of ugliness. Or Lobsang.
18 ~ The Moon
Illusion/mirage/ a complicated life
Elves in moon's light - possibly riding yarrow stalks (whatever they are... (L&L) )
Tough one...Granny or Susan comes to mind here. Whose life is more complicated than theirs? Or, if you wanted a shot character, Lillith Weatherwax.
19 ~ The Sun (Dome of the Sky)
Sincere affection. Noble sentiments.
Hard one to discify this. Possibly Druids flying sarsen stones to Llamedos across a sunny sky OR use Egyptian style Nut-type Goddess from Pyramids (pooh'll like that )
This would be Carrot all over, if he wasn't one of The Lovers.
20 ~ Judgement
A good card, predicting library work. Stability in business. Health.
AM Watch badge
Yeah, probably good. Although I also like Granny here as well, since she's very healthy and judgemental.
21 ~ The World
If a man it’s his thoughts, if a woman it’s her personality. Perfection, Inspiration. Good health.
Great A'tuin, ellies and disc
Yes, makes sense!
22 ~ The Fool
In-determination, wrong advice, thoughtlessness, abandonment of material things. Incompetence.
Rincewind - who else?
Yeah. He's gotta go somewhere.
