Adapting a 2nd Ed Sorte deck to 1st Ed.

Postby Lady Grace » Fri Jul 28, 2017 11:06 am

My group is (hopefully) heading to Vodacce soon. We backed enough on the 2nd Ed KS to get the Sorte deck and I dearly want to use it as a prop. But I know the arcana is different from what's in 1st Ed. While I can BS a tarot reading with the best of them, any advice on using the deck would be helpful.

Well I think you're in luck because there are exactly as many of the Arcana cards in 2nd Ed as first. The names vary a bit but there are quite a few overlaps. I did a quick matchup and this is what I came up with. 1st Ed Arcana on the left, it's corresponding 2nd Ed card on the right (the ones in parentheses are the ones I've guessed at)). If you have any questions feel free to ask my why I chose what I did.

I should have added this earlier. To be honest I don't use the 2nd Ed Tarot for HoA (or my home games) I use the one that looks like this. Image

Yeah, I have that deck as well. But I wanna use the 2nd Ed deck for this since 1) it really looks Cool, 2) I'm not gonna be running 2nd Ed any time soon so I might as well get some use out of it & 3) the differences WILL throw the so-called "Tarot expert" off. :twisted:
