Hi there Ross - always good to have another artist join up :D Here's the link that's most helpful for you to contribute to the project which has moved on since the last post in this thread - it's been moved to the Games forum and is the sticky topic at the top of the list so you can't miss it! ;)

As the new Discworld Companion Turtle Recall has now formally listed the major arcana of the Discworld tarot I've done a suit to go with the 'generic' deck we used at the last convention but if you read on from the link you'll see that we're still using the thread as a showcase for people's illustrations for the character cards and there's no reason why you shouldn't do another set for the trump cards in the Caroc as well. The JPEG template we're using for the illustrations is in the opening post for the thread and you can skim through to look at the other designs we have so far - you can basically add as many of your own designs as you want :D

@Tonyblack
Thanks, I see there's been a lot of discussion on the themes already so if anything is already decided then so be it, just wanted to chip in some ideas.

Incidentally on the subject of colours, do the different suits really need to be different colours? The symbols just need to look different enough to tell them apart I'd have thought, it's fairly easy to tell a turtle from an elephant or an octogram from a club/wand, assuming octograms are equivalent to hearts and elephants are equivalent to diamonds have those red and have turtles and wands in black?... sorry, I'm getting carried away again ^_^;

@ Jan Van Quirm
Oops, didn't see your post, sorry. I haven't yet bought Turtle Recall, I'll have to look for it but that's helpful, thanks, and thanks for the link to the other thread, I'll take a look.

@Tonyblack, Yes I only saw her post after I'd posted, as it went onto the next page, sorry, I'll have a look at that other thread.

Will the various Caroc decks be displayed at the NADWCon 2013 next month?

No - sorry Tamar. This is something we cobbled together purely for fans to play with (as a kind of card school with the other Discworld board games) for the UK convention in one of the venue rooms last year. We've not got any permissions/authorisation to distribute these in any way including and especially on a commercial basis. We just took 4 complete decks along to the 'Dicebox' room every day during the convention and had 2 tables going most of the time for up to 7 players a game and shared the room with the makers of Ankh-Morpork and Guards! Guards! who were holding ad hoc tournies for anyone who wanted to play a game.

I can let people have sets in PDF format to print up and cut themselves (you can do this on any home printer using 210gsm or better thick card). Go here for the 2 types of decks (traditional casino-style 13 card suits or Witches Abroad style with 8 number & 4 court cards per suit) and a choice of back designs. PM me for the PDF with your e-mail contact and I can get it off to you more or less by return :D

Sorry to be dense but how do I do that? There's a thingy on the page for sending an email but it asks me to tell it your email to use it.

Under Jan's name on the lefthand side of the screen, is an icon PM.

Click on that and send your email address to Jan, and she will send you a PDF back as an email attachment.
