    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?

    the egyptians and mesoamericans made use of tons of gold for adornment and decoration. The main color of traditional sci-fi is probably white and gray. So we could try to add gold elements and maybe inscriptions in order to achieve a common design and color scheme.

    One more useful link I got a five finger discount on. Hope it's okay to have it in out thread, too.

    Well, I'm just brainstorming
    ...actually wouldn't say the main colors of sci fi are white and gray - sci fi ambient comes with a lot of different color schemes... techincally, sci fi is distinguished from fantasy genre only by the fact, that its imaginary elements are based on laws of nature/technology, while in the fantasy genre those imaginary things are just there because they are, or because of a magical force...

    but I think the symbolic language (not only text symbols, symbols that can be found in costume, adornment, architecture, decoration etc.) was often used as an inspiration for science fiction and fantasy (stargate might be a pretty obvious example) art and literature - some people like von Daeniken went so far that they say it was impossible for humans to build for example pyramids or the huge mesoamerican buildings and he claims that a "technologically more advanced life form" has helped/or made possible to build this stuff and has influenced these cultures art and symbolic language. Scientifically trash, but fun ideas....

    I think we could try to achieve common design best, if we use a similar ambient and symbolic language in the details... doesn't have to be 1:1 the same for every picture, but similar...
