I tested this deck a little longer, so if you've been cruising the web in search of a TQS-original on the AlcheMystic...sorry! ...

Original, pretty (or extraordinarily gorgeous), enticing, out-of-the-box, newsworthy & educational. If any of those keywords are applicable to a deck or book that I’ve seen, chances are I want to have it (written about) on The Queen’s Sword.

Sounds like the recipe for a great tarot deck if such a man would ever try to create one, right? I am not saying it isn’t, but Sunish Chabba’s first try at reaching ...
