Our favorite jet-setting tarotista, Mary K Greer,  takes some time out of her busy schedule to chat with Rose Red and Jaymi. Mary’s a very busy instructor in 2018. She’ll be teaching at PantheaCon, and at the now sold out Readers Studio in New York. She’ll be traveling back to China to teach at least twice more.

Mary also gives us many tales about Pamela Coleman Smith, as she is in the process of writing a book with US Games, Inc. about the artist extraordinare herself. This book is due out in 2018, as well. The girls have decided that Mary is welcome to tell more tales at anytime!

Tarot Visions: Tarot and Gaming series: interview with Satyros Phil Brucato

August 25th, 2017

In this episode, we used our random character generator to conjure up “a satyr line developer” by the name of Satyros Phil Brucato, award-winning author. We discuss his sordid history of gaming, from his involvement with White Wolf Game Studio as the line developer for Mage the Ascension, and Sorcerer’s Crusade games to creating the urban fantasy Deliria, Faerie Tales for the New Millennium. We talk about the Mage: The Ascension tarot deck and using playing cards to create unique resolution systems. As a bonus, he tells us more about the Dreamdancer Oracle, a collaborative production with Stephanie Pui-Mun Law. Warning: explicit cussing does occur in this week's episode.
