Each Tarot Card has five different factors you need to know about to understand their meaning. These factors are:

  • Card – The card itself displays an image somewhat relating to what it does.
  • Name – The name of the card also plays into what effect the card has.
  • Effect – Each card has its own special effect or a couple of different effects.
  • Color – The color the card burns can indicate what effect was triggered or can be simply cosmetic for the card itself.
  • Chance – The percentage-based odds of actually pulling the card.

Every Tarot Card deck you pick up has 10 randomly chosen cards. When you use this Cursed Possession, you’ll generally see the same card multiple times, which means it’s quite common to not see all of the possible cards you can pull even though there are 10 different cards you can pull too.

Most decks have multiple copies of the more common ones like The Tower and The Wheel of Fortune. Cards like The High Priestess and The Hanged Man are incredibly rare and not pulled very often. Using Tarot Cards is somewhat similar to using the Voodoo Doll as both are very random, unpredictable, and based on luck.
