Reading Tarot Cards Revealed

Get Instant Access

Diligent study allows you to master a tarot card and forgo its use as a focus.

Prerequisites: Tarot mage, Int 15+.

Benefit The tarot mage has studied the images and significance of a particular card with such dedication that they are burned into his her brain. The tarot mage can now cast one of the spells that requires the card without having to use it as a focus. This feat may be taken repeatedly to master the different cards, or for the same card to develop the different spells associated with it. There are some restrictions:

the tarot mage can only use this for a card that she has in hisher possession, and this can only be used to specialize with the minor arcana.


The tarot mage \ cannot use the \ feat Silent

Spell in conjunction with this specialization. For a given spell, the tarot mage must use at least one of the components.


Some GMs may wish to use the tarot magic system but not incorporate a new class. In this case, the tarot mage can be used as a prestige class. We have decided to supply the GM with options. The first allows the tarot spells from System One to be incorporated into the tarot mage prestige class. The second is designed for those GMs who only want to use the core spells and not introduce a new magic system. While most of the descriptions of the tarot mage prestige class are the same for both options, when there is a difference in use, it will be noted.


Tarot Mage:

Tarot mages, those who learn to manipulate the mystic tarot cards, are a very specialized school. The tarot mage can use and create magical cards as spell foci from which she can cast spells. ShHe combines the arcane methods of both the wizard and the sorcerer. As the wizard needs his her spellbook to memorize a spell, the tarot mage needs the special cards to focus the magical energies. However, as a sorcerer is free to cast any spell known without preparing it ahead of time, so too can the tarot mage cast any spell associated with the card or combination of cards, as long as she has the appropriate level.

The tarot mage is part performer and part spell-caster. The tarot mage often uses his her knowledge of the accepted meanings of the cards and a keen sense of psychology to perform readings for interested individuals. Many a tarot mage has become famous for being able to reach into a stranger's past and then predict future events. Because of this, many seek out the tarot mage, either to inquire into the their destinies or to prevent the occult-using mage from infecting the general populace. Many cultures view the tarot mage and the mystic cards she uses with suspicion and disdain.

Wizards, sorcerers and bards are the most likely to become a tarot mage. The performance side of the tarot reading appeals to the bard, while the new and powerful path of magic lures many wizards and sorcerers. Rogues have been known to become tarot mages after studying a bit of magic. Many rogues use the gifts of the tarot mage to turn a profit and con as many subjects out of their fortunes as possible. Clerics, druids and paladins rarely become tarot mages because of the occult nature of the magic and its history, and the idea of defining and controlling nature through an image.

Skill Points at Each Level: 2 + Int modifier.

Class features:

All of the following are class features of the tarot mage prestige class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Tarot mages gain no new proficiency.

Special Abilities and Feats:

Spells: For those GMs who wish to allow the prestige class to be able to cast tarot spells (see Chapter 3, System One) as well as the normal spells, the tarot mage can learn both spell lists. However, for those who wish to stay away from the tarot spells and only use the core spells (see Chapter 3, System Two), the tarot mage learns the patterns of the cards and how they can be used to harness the arcane power.

Tarot Spell: As the tarot mage advances within this prestige class, she begins to harness more and more power with the cards. The tarot spell ability allows the tarot mage to cast spells from the appropriate level (Tarot Spell 1

can cast lst-level spells and Tarot Spell 5 can cast 5th-level spells). Of course the tarot mage must be of a high enough level to cast that level of spell. For example, a

Wiz5/Tarot Mage4 would only be allowed to cast 3rd-level spells. The only exception to this rule is if the individual has spell bonuses because of a high Intelligence or Charisma. If the above tarot mage above had an Intelligence of 18 or higher, she would be able to cast 4th-level tarot spells (due to his her Tarot Spell 4 ability), although the number of 4th-level spells would depend on the number of bonuses.

One of the major advantages of pursuing the tarot mage prestige class, even for those who cannot use System One, is that the mage learns how to focus arcane power through the tarot card and no longer requires

other material spell components or somatics. Only the focus, the card, and a verbal directive are required. With practice and experience, the tarot mage can forgo the need for the card altogether (see Tarot Combination Specialization below).

Tarot Combination Specialization: By taking this specialization the tarot mage has memorized a tarot card (System One), or a combination of tarot cards (System Two), so completely that she no longer needs the cards as a focus to cast a particular spell. If using System One, the tarot mage must designate which spell has been memorized for that particular card. For example, the Page of Swords has three spells associated with it: secrets, diplomacy, and summon small air elemental. A tarot mage, by selecting tarot combination specialization, can choose to memorize the patterns for secrets. If the mage wishes to memorize the patterns for diplomacy, she would have to take the specialization a second time.

If using System Two, the combination of cards is also restricted to one spell even when the different combinations of cards can cast multiple spells. Also, the tarot mage cannot use this to memorize the combination of more than two cards. For example, the wish spell requires five cards (a 10 of any suit and a combination of page, knight, queen and king from the four suits). This combination could not be memorized.

Note: The tarot mage cannot use the feat Silent Spell in conjunction with this specialization. At least one of the spell components must be used to cast a spell.

Examples of the Tarot Mage:

The first example shows a tarot mage class character. The player wanted to explore the world of tarot and decided to not mimic the typical battle wizard approach to spellcasting. Instead, she created Jarlanna, an elven tarot mage fascinated by the divinatory power of the mystical cards. During character creation and some solo adventures that followed, Jarlanna left the safety of the elven homeland and journeyed with a band of gypsy-like peoples. They taught her more of the tarot and told her tales of a powerful group, the Montalvo Society, that used the magical cards to predict the future and guide the world away from ultimate doom. Jarlanna discovered hints and rumors of the society's locale but has yet to find them. The society, however, has found her and placed an agent (a seemingly rough and severe fighter) in her party. The society is testing Jarlanna to determine if she should be admitted to the society.

Description: Jalana Is a very thin elven female with long, black hair and silver eyes. She does

not smile often, holding a contemplative look on her face most of the time. When forced to travel with those she is not familiar, Jalana will keep very quiet and study the others until she knows whether to trust them or not.

Motives: Jalana seeks to improve her divinatory abilities through the use of the tarot. The rumors of the Montalvo Society have captured her interest, and she pursues the truth behind the stories.

Tactics: Jalana will attempt to use her powers to avoid conflict. If faced with hostility, she will use her enchantments to control the minds of those who wish her harm. If all else fails, she will use her few offensive spells such as tears and her dagger to counter the attack.

The second example is a tarot mage as a prestige class. Breetay's player wanted a tarot mage from the start, but in this campaign the tarot mage is a prestige class; Breetay needed experience to enter the world of the tarot mage. The player had Breetay take as many skills such as Knowledge (tarot) as possible to ready himself once he had the prerequisites. Traveling and exploring, Breetay unearthed clues to the whereabouts of some of the cards of the Marvelous Deck of Celeste but has yet to discover any.

Note: If Breetay gains another level of tarot mage before he adds to his level of wizard, he will be able to cast one 4th-level spell due to his Intelligence score and Tarot Spell 4 ability.

Description: Breetay does not look the part of a wizard. While not strong, he is lean and athletic. Breetay tends to dress in rough, outdoor garb. Even the quarter-staff he carries more closely resembles a walking stick than a wizard's staff. Breetay is easy going and enjoys the company of others. He performs tarot readings to amaze and delight an audience.

Motives: Breetay adventures to gather more experience, knowledge and ability with the tarot. At times he will join a group just to enjoy the company of others, but always, he seeks more information about the Marvelous Deck of Celeste.

Tactics: Breetay is not foolish when it comes to battles. He knows his physical limitations and lets the warriors place their bodies in harm's way while he supports them with offensive spells. Afterwards, he enjoys sitting back and recounting the heroic deeds he and the others performed during the fight.

This book presents two systems using tarot cards. System One allows the PC to be more opened-ended with the magic system and may not be suitable to all GMs. The System Two converts the traditional sorcerer/wizard spells and associates them with the minor arcana.

System One:

Tarot cards have multiple meanings that the tarot mage can manipulate to react to different situations. As the tarot mage becomes more and more familiar with the powers of the cards (i.e. gains experience and levels), she is better able to manipulate the cards and develop multiple spells with them.

Major Arcana:

For game purposes, the major arcana are usually more powerful when dealing with magic cast on one's self. While there are a few major arcana that affect others, the majority of the cards are better suited to enhance the powers of the spellcaster.

A tarot mage can tap into the raw power of one major arcana card at a time. When the card is tapped, it bestows a bonus to one or more of the mage's abilities. The ability affected is determined by the card (see the BOLD ability score in the descriptions below). Note that the World card affects all of the abilities. The mage receives a +2 enhancement bonus for 1 hour + 1 hour/ class level of the tarot mage. During this time the tarot mage may use other major arcana to cast spells but may not activate another card to gain a different ability increase. The tarot mage must wait for the duration of the tap to end before tapping another card.
