Again, nothing creative from me I'm afraid, since I'm still drowning in work...but I promised to post if I hear anything new on the tarot cancellation and I've read this rumor:

"The Buffy Tarot card set from Dark Horse is cancelled. No reasons are given, but I hear talk it was due to conflicts with the representatives of certain actors/actresses who appear on the cards. Apparently make believe occult nonsense is fine, but an actual item that might be used in the black arts is not. But really. You think someone would have predicted this. Somehow. "

I'm hard pressed to believe it though, I mean, it's just cards. Fortune telling is hardly a black art (if you're not the spanish inquisition). That would be like canceling an action figure, because it could be used as a voodoo doll.

Looks like the tarot game got the ax :(
Dammit, i thought it would have been an awesome piece of merchandise. Also it seems like most of the artwork was already done, so I hope maybe someone else besides Darkhorse might publish it. Does anyone have more information?

There are five new pictures from the upcoming Buffy Tarot online! I can't help being excited, I adore this kind of merchandise :)
They can be seen here. It also says that there is going to be full deck of 78 cards, which is kind of cool. I guess the minor Arcana are only going to be symbols but at least the royal cards of each color might be very interesting. The fanged four would make a brilliant row for the swords I think. I'll have to make an update to my tarot post once in a while :)

I hope I'll be able to get my hands on the thing over here...

The first page of the Spike comic is here. Looks cool. God I can't wait for this comic to finally come out.

if anyone's interested here are more cards (I started the list this morning over here)

There is going to be a Buffy Tarot game by Darkhose, I guess by now that's already old news. Here are some first glimpses at it.
I personally think the artwork is gorgeous and I'm very happy that they chose to make original artwork instead of just sticking halfway fitting pictures on the cards as it sometimes happens with theme tarot games. Also they tried to connect the Rider Waite symbolism with characters from the show. I love that, big time. Naturally I would do a hundred things differently since everyone has a different take on the cards and their meanings and on the characters.
The whole thing got my brain turning on where I would put each character and so on. Since I have to get it out of my system, here is my personal take on the thing. I'm using my interpretation of the Rider Waite cards and characters here so please feel free to say "argh, bullshit" and comment what you think about it. I linked the wiki pages for a more objective interpretation. The more opinions, the more interesting.
