Tarot uPick Discussion and Sign-Up

I’d like to run another Tarot uPick for my first modded game on Mafia451

Players: At least 9 - up to 19

Flavor: Game will be based on the Deviant Moon Tarot. The game will feature some tarot-inspired mechanics, but no alignment changes.

The Deviant Moon tarot deck is a descendant of the Ryder Waite deck, so you can use R-W meanings to select your card picks. If you have any questions (or if I know your card has unique or idiosyncratic meanings or symbolism in the Deviant Moon Deck), we can discuss when you’re ready to make your card picks.

Links to R-W meanings for

Major Arcana: http://www.tarot-card.net/majorarcana.htm
Court Cards: http://www.tarot-card.net/courtcards.htm
Minor Arcana: http://www.tarot-card.net/minorarcana.htm

The interpretations I’ll use for the game are not entirely R-W standard, but more of an amalgam of R-W, Thoth and a few other sources.

Choose three cards, ranked in your preference order. In the next couple of days I’ll post photos with all the Deviant Moon cards to help with choosing.

I ran a few Tarot uPicks at MS

Original Tarot uPick micro game is here.

I also ran a Large Theme Tarot uPick, but this game will probably be more similar to the micro than the large theme.

The most recent Tarot uPick was a micro game here.

My usual method for designing Tarot uPicks is

  1. Determine each player’s significator card from their three choices
  2. Design a town role using inspiration from all three cards chosen, emphasizing the significator.
  3. Do a random roll for alignments
  4. Tweak roles as necessary for scum team and overall balance.

If you’re interested in playing a game of this nature, let’s discuss it here!

I found a site that has pictures of all the deviant moon tarot cards, and an overview of what each card means in Tarot.

I think this is a better way for you guys to select your cards than for me to take a bunch of group photos of my deck.

pls scratch out judge mental

…no spaces allowed in usernames, wut

so it’s me

Hey @encomium, if you add Judge Mental as your “Full name” in your profile it’ll now appear as the primary name in your posts and content. As an example I’ve set Elli as my full name while Ellibereth is my username.

There are no spaces in username usernames because they’re used in things like URL’s where spaces would cause things to get screwy.

Hope that helps!

Okay, so to post to a thread we click reply?


We’re not officially back yet, so if you experience any abrupt crazy stuff, it’s because we’re still working on things under the hood.

Under the Bonnet?

If it was a Vw, you’d be in the Boot. :rofl:

Oh you and your bogan terminology.
