Tarot Reader
e2rszTn.jpg?1?3506

The ability to reveal the mysteries of the future is one that few are able to obtain, and even less are able to master. Some use the misty depths of a crystal ball to see into the fog of the future, while others use the dregs of tea leaves to divine coming events. Others turn to a series of cards to practice their craft through. These tarot cards are more than for playing games; in the right hands, these cards can divine the past, present, and future of an individual. The Tarot reader uses their power of prophecy to guide their allies to success and damn their enemies with bad omens. A support oriented class, the path of tarot reading is not for everybody, but those who master it can perform feats that their more mundane companions can only dream of.

Mechanic: Tarot Readings
The majority of Tarot Reader features require the user to be performing a tarot reading on a target. Tarot readings are a type of prophecy that use a special deck of cards to reveal the client's past, present, and future. Tarot readings take at least ten minutes to perform. In order to be affected by any of the effects of a tarot reading, the target must be willing to participate in the tarot reading, though he need not know of the possible side-effects.
