:lol: Knew you'd be interested in this Cheery! - lovely to see you again as well of course :wink:

You may have done me a favour on the writing side of deviant (don't do much artwork anymore) - it's a good community, but whether I'll have the time to do much on there is another matter... :roll: I also don't like the subscription side of it but I suppose there are advantages. Am resisting that for now anyway :lol:

Oh go on then :lol:

OK we have 4 artists Jane; Mystmoon; Cheery and Bikkit so that looks easy to divvy up - one suit each sound OK and Jane to do the Jesters Guild jokers as this was her idea and I want to see the Beano/D'eath joker? :twisted:

Or we can split it so you do one for each the suits if you don't want to be lumbered with all hearts etc - but TBH it would give the design for the suit a more consistent look which would be desirable aesthetically? :lol:

Or names inna a hat? :roll:

I'm fine with doing one suit each, is each suit related to one particular story (Spades=Death, Clubs=Watch etc.) or is it whatever takes our fancy?

I'm fine with that, too



but if its story related, I would like to do death, susan, mort (due to the fact that I would really fail at anything else)

We'll go with the poll on how the suits are themed and it looks like the serial characters are going to be hard to beat now at 66% to 11% for 3 other options so we've had 9 people in to vote now

Jane - did you get to vote OK in the end?

I think if we call it a result tomorrow and then it's a case of who's going to be there for Ace, King, Queen and Jack - and if it is the series theme the Death family need to be Spades 'cos Death's gotta be the Ace :wink: :lol: and I think you ladies decide who to put in the your suit rather than have us debating who in where :wink:

I wrote:C: Series Groups
Death (Mort, Reaperman etc) = Spades; Witches (Wyrd Sisters, Wintersmith etc) = Hearts; The Watch (Guards! Guards! Nightwatch etc) = Clubs; Wizards (Colour of Magic, Unseen Academicals etc) = Diamonds

I think the suit allocation does work as I put it in the poll (well I would do, but it does make sense...) :wink:

Witches - Hearts because they're community carers :wink:
Watch - Clubs because it's a strength suit and Detritus has a big one... :P
Wizards - Diamonds because they're all smoke (smoking habits) and mirrors (so Witches wouldn't be doing with diamonds) :lol:
Death - Spades because Death has to be Ace! :lol:
