Tarot is the occult skill of inscribing magical cards with various inks in order to create a powerful image. Each of the major arcana of the Tarot deck is represented here. To use the skill, one must first find some blank tarot cards. Then, you may inscribe the cards with various images, each unique image empowers the card's wielder with different types of magic. Inscribing takes intense concentration and one cannot do much else while focusing on the task.

The skill of Tarot is available to members of the Jester and Occultist classes.

Jesters also have the skills of Pranks and Puppetry, while Occultists also have the skills of Occultism and Domination.

Cards that can be ruinated are:

Justice becomes tyranny. It will convert up to four of: paralysis, sensitivity, healthleech, haemophilia, weariness, asthma, or clumsiness into broken limbs.

The wheel of fortune becomes the Wheel of Chaos. Fling it at the ground and it will begin to rotate. After rotating the number of desired times it will lash out with chaotic energy. Lesser in many ways than the karmic powered rays of Occultism, but with relatively similar results. The first ray will freeze. The second will give stuttering. The final and most dangerous of the rays will strip the speed defence if it is present or give aeon if it is not. Note that the wheel will be indiscriminate, striking everyone except you(*).

* You may specify how many rotations you wish to happen before the wheel starts lashing out such as: RUINATE WHEEL AT GROUND 4. This number must be between 1 and 7, and defaults to 1 if not specified.
