Bloody Brilliant.
For as long as space exists,
And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,
to dispel the sufferings of the world.

The design work on that deck looks amazing.. Great back!

Are they "regular" tarot size (tall and narrow)?

If they are anything like the card in WA then are a bit smaller than ... "normal" sized tarot. ... But the tarot now are more modern than the tarot then...

Roth, I have taken a look at your 'Carnie tarot' deck on the site.They look wonderful.Silk and the box included! I like the look of the backs which should (if I am guessing rightly) be easy enough to read at a glance.Is it possible for you to now attach for us here at Magic Café a few samples of the faces so that we can get an idea of the appearance/feel of the actual cards? I have recently purchased Christian's 'Medieval tarot' so I am interested in this sort of thing at the moment.

With best wishes Andy.

They're bigger than the witch cards, but not full size large tarot.

Ringmaster,

Greetings
Welcome to the gypsy of fortunes
Your coin was very much appreciated
And now I shall grant you your future
It seems my cards of tarot have dealt you a very odd hand
A hand of six jokers card, this is very rare
And suggest something neusant is approaching
You should be visited by a dark circus
A circus that holds pain and anguish
This traveling mass of evil will leave you corpse to rot
While entrapping your soul to displayed at future stops
Oh yes, you should also be aware that it is your own evil doings
That have brought about this carnival's visit
All of the sins and hatred you have cast during your life
Have whipped and spun into form, the form of one
One who leads this gruesome parade of pain into your life
One sinister beast, one known only as RINGMASTER
Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the museum, the wax museum
Thousands of dead souls covered in wax
All of the rare exhibits you are about to encounter
Are strange and wondrous creations of the one and the only
Leader of them all
So both dead and undead please welcome the R-r-r-ringmaster


Any word on these?



Ringmaster's Word

I have a purpose...
Take your dill knife, stab me, go, strike my heart...
I have a purpose...
Such things can't exist...
I have a purpose...
You will tell them of me and how one day I shall come for them...
I have a purpose...
Quietly, I will come over your bed,
I will lean over and gently bite your neck...
Ringmaster...
I have a purpose...
You will tell them of me and how one day I shall come for them.

A willow tree was slayed and 50 decks were made.

The spirits have smiled upon you, or have they?
How you came to possess one of the carnie tarot is not my concern
It's what you do with it that will bring success or ruin

it was no accident that you acquired these cards of mine, you were destined to have them of course
it was just a matter of time

Use the carnie wisely and the seekers will come to you
use the carnie selfishly, and you become the Fool

A willow tree was slayed and 50 decks I made

Lot of emails and PM's. These took a little longer than expected but they are finally shipping in a day or two.

They are absolutely awesome looking. Old yellowed, subliminal watermarks, spooky back pattern.

Each deck actually has it's own carnie name and its own C.O.A. and comes in an old cardboard box.

Took more time than we thought but will knock yer socks off.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at these bad boys today, and all I can say is, AARRGGHHHH! Scared the living cr*p out of me! The "subliminal watermark" played on many fears... and I didn't even know what I was looking at! -Until Roth pointed it out. Can't say any more. You'll see for yourself... or perhaps you won't see- you'll just, well... FEEL it.
The cards are unique and quite beautiful (despite their foreboding nature). I have no idea why Rick is taking the time to hand-age each deck of cards, one card at a time, but my guess is that he's been inhaling that Relic polish a little too long. Each card not only carries all the traditional Tarot meanings, but also suggests many unspoken ancient secrets. This deck is hot. Then again, it probably originated somewhere very, very hot, indeed.

My curses go out to Roth. I had a beautiful plan on making the Carnie Cards take longer to get by placing my own order for other items.Smile Not only did that madman RUIN my plans by still getting the Carnie cards out this week, but he even got MY stuff done sooner then I expected.

Holy ****!

And he can somehow respond to PMs at ANY time of the day or night... I'm starting to think our Outlaw Overlord isn't a regular human... Smile

I've been kind of rolling some thoughts around in my head about this deck...

Anyone know if it would be possible to adapt Kranzo's Box Monster to work with these cards?

Oh the evil that could inflict... Smile
