    awesome, nice initiative!

    if you want, wanna change our title to team Utopian Battleship?

    i think daestwen wants us to use the team title when requesting cards, and im about to post in the signup thread saying we're an official team and to place us in the list accordingly, might as well use the team name across all threads .

    Well, I don't have a better suggestion for a team name, I think utopian battleship is nice (as a cat person I'd prefer battlecats, heh, but I like ships, too)

    the drug lab sounds cool, too... my best result was disaster voodoo church

    So, hm, do you already have ideas which cards you'd like to do?

    I'm glad it is acceptable, haha. I think it has a nice ring.

    So as to the cards, if you two have specific ones you'd like to do i say feel free to post in the card thread and request them for our team, I guess choosing one major and one minor tarot each is the best way to do it, so feel free to do that!

    I'm not sure what I'm going to go after yet, i may even end up choosing two minors or something. I'm going to sleep on it and work that out later today. (it is 7am here and i have yet to go to bed, i wanted to sort this all out first! silly me.)

    Okay, first things first. I think the name thing is not a big issue, much more important: the cards! I'd like to go for The Empress and Three of swords before all slots are full.
    What about the two of you?

    okay, good night then instinct.

    What about you Nike?

    Good night, instinct!

    Hm, I'm still thinking about the cards... from the major arcana I like the chariot, the star, and the world, and the lower I have to check again...

    Okay, I've settled on the Two of Cups and the Five of Swords, so nike, if you want to do two Major Arcana feel free!

    Also if either of you have any ideas towards perhaps some kind of over-arching theme or colour/design scheme we could work towards to end up with images that feel 'team-like' or something, post 'em!
    It's a completely different direction, but one thing i was thinking about was taking it into another genre, for example, what would a tarot used in a sci-fi setting be like?

    Now, to bed!

    I reserved the two now because I'm a bit in a hurry. Need to catch the train. So I'd say you just do the same as soon as you have decided which cards to pick.

    I find this link quite useful: http://www.tarot.com/tarot/decks/index.php?deckID=23 LostFAyth has posted it in the Topics and Discusiion Thread. Maybe you have already checked it out.

    Ok, great, I've decided now, too - I'll do the World and the Five of cups; I can do the star, additionally, if I feel like I need more :-)

    I somewhat like the scf-fi idea. My first idea for the empress was to go for a mix of asian designs and costume plus maybe some egyptian stuff and not so much for traditional 18th/19th century imperial stuff from Europe only.
    What came to my mind is star wars, of course. But I think there is tons of cool stuff and designs that never made it into the films, so it's worth to check this out for inspiration.

    hm... what about combining egyptian/mesoamerican/ancient asian elements with sci-fi elements? Like in the von Daeniken "aliens built all important ancient cultures of our world" theories?
