Name:	0- The Fool.jpg
Views:	94
Size:	65.2 KB
ID:	4301
    The Fool depicts a young man at the outset of a journey. It is a card for dreamers, the reckless, and level 1 Heroes. He carries nothing with him except a sack of Sil and a sweet-ass Zweihander, caring nothing for the possible dangers that lie in his path towards greatness and harems. The poof-cat at his heels tries to warn of upcoming dangers (or maybe just wants scratches), but his eyes are towards the horizon. Whether he may fall or obtain all he wants is yet to be seen, but he’s going to get down, one way or another.
    ________________________________


    Started drawing these fanarts during Iron Waifu to celebrate the lovely ladies who make the game great, and I figured I'd keep going.

    The Tarot contains a total of 78 cards. 22 make up the Major Arcana, and are the ones you're probably familiar with if you've played Persona 3-5. The are also four suits of Minor Arcana cards (from which the familiar deck of 52 cards is derived from).

    Each card depicts a specific archetype, and these can often be applied to a work of fiction, as long as the characters are numerous and have depth. The also have positive and negative aspects (for example, potential and optimism is balanced by recklessness and ignorance in the Fool).

    Backgrounds and poses are mainly taken from the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck, one of the most widely recognizable.

    Any suggestions for characters to use in specific cards is welcome and appreciated. With so many cards, there's more than enough to go around for each harem girl, and also non-harem characters, antagonists, or significant items or events in game.
    ________________________________________

    Setting out on his journey, the Fool quickly encounters a young man. Dressed in the robes of a mage, he brandishes the tools of his trade. He offers a solution to all the Hero's problems, but he really as skilled as he appears?

        Minor nitpick: the XIII card isn't supposed to have any name written upon it.

          Yep, many decks do this, like the Tarot of Marseilles, others, like the Rider/Waite/Smith don't. I'm using the latter for inspiration.

          They're heretics who betrayed the great tarot tradition and should be purged by the tarot inquisition.

          The Emperor (Queen Melfi)- "You're up against real power now, so yield or suffer the consequences."

          Melfi gets the Emperor as she's the games best example of political/secular authority that the card represents. I also ditched the background for the the Devil because Bell works just fine as both the Demon and the Captive that the RWS image features.
