So, some of us were talking about this on IRC, and decided that this warrants a thread.
If Tgchan has its own deck of tarot cards, who would be on each major arcana?

So far we've got James Baxter from Ouroboros for the Fool, Chuck from Coxwette for The Devil, Poly from Enemy Quest for High Priestess, Nate from Conspiracy of Wasps for The Hermit, and Bruco and Strela from Bruco and Strela Gets Married for The Lovers.

Maybe limit it to a character from a quest, so as to not crowd the deck. I myself have drawn Baxter as the Fool, McDowd as Justice, and Millie as Strength, but I only submit Baxter in this deck.

Discuss who will become what card in this thread!

Also a handy guide of all the Major Arcanas for your perusal:
>0 - The Fool: James Baxter (Ouroboros)
>1 - The Magician:
>2 - The High Priestess: Poly (Enemy Quest)
>3 - The Empress:
>4 - The Emperor:
>5 - The Hierophant:
>6 - The Lovers: Bruco & Strela (Bruco & Strela Gets Married)
>7 - The Chariot:
>8 (or 11) - Justice:
>9 - The Hermit: Nate (Conspiracy of Wasps)
>10 - Wheel of Fortune:
>11 (or 8) - Strength:
>12 - Hanged Man:
>13 - Death:
>14 - Temperance:
>15 - The Devil: Chuck (A Little Town Called Coxwette)
>16 - The Tower:
>17 - The Star:
>18 - The Moon:
>19 - The Sun:
>20 - Judgement:
>21 - The World:

i think player collective should be something.
wheel of fortune? everything changes when they grab hold of the protagonist.

The Tower is obviously Tory.
The Emperor could be Muschio, or any of the other would-be dictators on this site.
No. 102999 ID: 9876c4

Logan from Toptier would be a strong candidate for the Magician.

Cheri from Titsquest doing the Star would be pretty entertaining.

Cleveland and Voltolini doing Strength would be amazing.

Just saiyan.
No. 103000 ID: 4cc071

Maybe Dad TCP from Tiny Cat People as Hierophant?
Kinda fitting as she's the moral compass of the TCPs.
No. 103001 ID: 398fe1

I really don't like that site. I think this one is better:
No. 103002 ID: 90f3c0

73-6 as Judgement.
And going very literal, Scrups from UnSe Unce as The Chariot.
No. 103003 ID: 4cc071

Huh, agreed, this one is better.
Some other ideas thrown about the IRC was Sev-Three from Static on the Wire as Death, and Alison from Unnatural Selection as Strength - although these might be a point of debate.
No. 103007 ID: a18e8a

I'd suggest Hugo from Frogquest for the Chariot, as he litterally fits 90% of the meaning of the card.

Zack from Enemy quest as the strenght, since he has to deal a lot with acceptance, tolerance, persuasion, having strenght and stamina, etc? I can see him fit there well.
No. 103008 ID: a18e8a

Aaaaaaaand i forgot to type in Goblin Queen from Monster Humper as the Empress.

I think Alison makes a good Temperance.
No. 103011 ID: 9876c4

Does Zack have a cat sidekick?

Because thats what goes on the card.
No. 103012 ID: db0da2

I could also see her as The Magician, but she definitely fits Strength to a T. "unshakable resolve", "accepting others", "being compassionate", "soft control", these things are at the very core of her being! It fits far too well.
No. 103013 ID: a18e8a

Throw in a bika. Close enough. Or a golborian beast.
No. 103014 ID: ea2bfa

In a bit of shameless self-promotion, I could imagine Douglas from Devil Quest as an example of The Star. Dude's focused entirely on Love and Freedom, and is generally a pretty cheerful sort, along with how much of his time and energy he devotes to protecting and assisting Devils. Just my two cents, though...

Death has to be Prince Kronos

Actually I used the mystical Tarot for the meaning behind Nem's collar in Nem's Quest; she is XIII - Death, signifying change.
No. 103027 ID: d11a67

Lowry from Acid Soup strikes me as the perfect candidate for The World, especially when the card's reversed. The reversed World represents a struggle for closure, and given that her driving motivation is to fix her boyfriend so she can break up with him, that strikes me as Lowry to a T.
No. 103029 ID: 3abd97

I would nominate Jasper, the protagonist of http://www.tgchan.org/wiki/Not_Moms_Fault , as the sun, since she literally is the sun, and the major arcana themselves feature in the quest too.

Also, http://www.tgchan.org/wiki/Tory's_Tower is perfect for The Tower.
>The Tower signifies darkness and destruction on a physical scale, as opposed to a spiritual scale. The Tower itself represents ambitions built on false premises. The lightning bolt breaks down existing forms in order to make room for new ones. It represents a sudden, momentary glimpse of truth, a flash of inspiration that breaks down structures of ignorance and false reasoning.

(Of tangential note: we actually have three different Arcana Quests listed in the wiki, although to my knowledge, only one of them actually touches on tarot).
No. 103030 ID: 13459b

ohh I love this idea. Also Voting Sev for death, I think it works symbolically as well as literally.
Maybe Santiago from Nanquest as the Moon or Muschio as the emperor?
I always thought of Radula in terms of some kind of hierophant, although one that eats Gods...
No. 103031 ID: 398fe1

Or Reisarf and Stargazer.

Maybe Bradford for Judgement, and Remulus as Death?

Sev definitely needs to be either death or the hanged man.
Frillsby and gallsby as the lovers?
Alex from Red Giant as the magician?
or Buddy from TCP as the Moon?
No. 103040 ID: ee1ff4

Lowry as Death - ending, going through a transition, melancholy, changing status, eliminating excess, etc etc
Zack from Enemy Quest as the magician!
like, taking action, realizing your potential, new beginnings and great expectations, and reversed means hesitation (like waffling over the kariket thing)

No idea how to summon Weaver, but Ace with tom and ruby doing the Devil would be pretty great.

Ven (from Deep) is The Moon. Perfect fit.
No. 103056 ID: 398fe1

Welp looks like interpretations for tarot cards can differ drastically. Here's more:

The Empress: Astara fits quite well.
Emperor: a tough one. Savior from Unnatural Selection? I might think of a better fit later.
Heirophant: How about Bika? Conformity and knowledge.
The Chariot: I'll agree with Hugo.
Justice: How about Oren?
Wheel of Fortune: Pavane?
Strength: On IRC, Buddy from TCP was said to work. Or Alison from Unnatural Selection. I personally think Alice from Bloom works well here. Strength is about sharpness of mind and power of body combining to create a greater strength, along with passions related to both. Plus, she represents both the Maiden and the Beast.
Hanged Man: how about The Creator?

I'll do more later, it's getting late.

No. 103065 ID: 398fe1

Death: Sev-3 works here, yeah.
Temperance: I don't like Alison for this as much anymore. Temperance is more about balance and moderation than hope and negotiation. Mixing opposites... wait, of course. VENJI! Venji and Roz might work ok for Strength too, but I can't think of anyone else for Temperance.
The Tower: Well Tory works pretty well.
The Star: Alison fits this very very well. The Star is about hope, inspiration, kindness, peace... all these fit.
The Moon: Ven, as stated. However, Katherine (from Katherine Quest) could work here too.
The Sun: Haha, "nameless peon" from Huge Quest could qualify here. There might be a better fit somewhere...
Judgement: Hmm, this card is about rebirth and forgiving the mistakes of the past so that heaven can be reached. How about Typhon from Reformation? He was reborn and is haunted by his past and the past of the very world itself, which he (and the world) must come to terms with to move forwards into a brighter future.
The World: Chee! She is the most accomplished character that there is (I think), and through her actions an entire world was born.
No. 103071 ID: 163b99

I actually tried to do something like this a long time ago! And there's actually one I was working on before this thread appeared. So, if there's some sort of one-per thing going, I'd like to reserve the Empress, though I may take some time with it.

That's the stuff.

Err... how? The Hanged Man is about self-sacrifice and giving up control in order to see the world from a new perspective and gain wisdom from that. I guess you could argue that Sev fits the "suspension"(he's not really alive or dead) and "traitor" symbolism as well as reversal(attempting to retire as a hitman). However Hanged Man is very solidly a card about inaction and letting go, things which Sev don't really mesh with. Unless those parts would be fulfilled when he retires and cuts ties?

No. 103088 ID: 908ead

No, I'd say Strength isn't a good fit for Alice since she's based around having a fundamental instability. It's not so much a question of if she will fail as it is how. I'd argue The Hanged Man or perhaps The Moon or Death are better fits.

If a character represents the inverse meaning of the card, shouldn't the character be right side up when the card is reversed?

Generally both the card and figure are upside-down for inverted tarots. Pic for reference. Then again, generally the tarots have the same figures on the cards, since the inverted tarots are just the same cards flipped around IRL.

I know Death is taken but Khlar would make a pretty good candidate. Princess Photon could be strength.

Nem was designed to be XIII:DEATH from the very start so it's only appropriate she be on my Tarot.

It's especially poetic considering Nem's Quest arose as a way to focus my energy after my wife Max passed away, which is why her quest dealt with so many themes of change and death.
