    Hey Gee welcome back man, was getting worried! What kinda job is it? did you get a gig?

    Onto to the Chow, just some stuff to keep in mind that has been answered on the main thread:

    And keep in mind you don't have to stick to literal cups, wands and pentacles. Some versions I've seen are spears, staves, staffs, sticks, trees (for wands) -- Shells, horns (think Boromir's horn), chalices, the grail, (for cups) -- Coins, Gold, Talismans, stars, (for pentacles). And you don't have to take the card literally as long as the meaning gets through, so there are lots of interesting ways to make the illustration more fun for yourself. :]

Sorry if this has been answered already. :|
    Yah, interpretation is totally open, just try to get the same theme/idea behind it, okay? :] There are tons of tarot decks with different interpretations for it, so. It's totally up to you guys for the interpretation.

Was I incorrect in this? Should every card we draw feature a person/etc that represents that card or that card's story... rather than an object that is commonly featured on a traditional tarot card?
    It has to be a character, but it doesn't have to be a humanoid (just like we've had squirrel and dinosaur characters here in chow). You can still feature the objects, but it is a character contest, so centering it around a character that symbolizes the story the card is supposed to tell sounds best to me! But I don't want to be a total dictator on this.. The goal of this team chow is to come up with an awesome deck, so I'll allow leeway. :]

    My suggestions:

    2 and 3 of Pentacles
    6 of Swords
    4, 5 or Knight of Cups
    Ace, 3, 6, 9 or 10

    and any of the major arcana is great as well, but remember we can only 1 for each of us.

    Choose quickly please, just name them and i will add them to the main thread

    Alright, I guess I go with Knight of Cups...I can't find the others that you suggested that I find interesting...and I couldn't find the Aces...or Major Arcana. So can you just pick one for me...something with a girl in it would be good!

    No we haven't decided yet. I was thinking of combining some themes, say knights in space (although that probably has been done to death), mechanical fairies, something like that. i will think of something and give you my suggestions tomorrow. Also at least one of mine will not be humanoid, so we could make the whole based on animals, with some kind of theme.

    I am so down with making them animals with human body! But tat means we have to pick the animals and hopefully we won't have the same ones. Man, this reminds me of Dee's class somehow! hahaha! God, I miss her! NOT!

    I'm thinking that we should go towards something colorful, like Tellos... mmmh?

    Cam the red ones are the ones that have been taken and we can no longer choose so your previous choice of 2 of Pentacles and Temperance would be available.

    Man stuff like Tellos would ROCK! i say YES to that, and even the way Cameron put it sci-fi cell shaded space animals sounds cool to me especially if we pick animals that already have similar connotations to the cards.
