The Supernal Tarot

What…never heard of it? Ah ha, I know something you don’t know. Actually, I’m cheating a bit because the Supernal Tarot isn’t technically a tarot deck, although it’s pretty damn close.
Roleplaying games and tarot cards have crossed paths before, but with Keys to the Supernal Tarot, White Wolf’s latest supplement for the Mage: the Awakening franchise, they’ve not only crossed paths, they’ve met for coffee, caught a movie and well, you know…
Let me be clear – there are no cards. But there’s a shiny hardback book with two 2-page spreads showing each one of the 22 cards in lovely technicolour. And the book itself is also quite a treat for tarot lovers – it opens with a short piece of fiction about a reading (using playing cards – duh) and then each of the 22 cards has a chapter devoted to it, with a nice bit of background about the card and how it can be applied to your Mage character.
