Thursday Thirteen #99

The Archetypes Storytelling Cards, is one of the the things Joely talked about last year using as a help in the planning stage for a story--to help set up plot, setting, character, theme, and metaphor. She learned about from Holly Lisle's Plot Clinic which I had read last summer myself and been intrigued by the concept but Holly's book did not contain images from the cards and Joely provided a link to their site where I got lost for hours the other day. I would provide a direct link to her post but her site is changing hosts any moment and her blog archives can't go with.

The deck contains 64 cards and was conceived as an alternative to using a tarot deck for the same purpose as many have a religious aversion to handling a tarot deck even for a non-divination purpose. I love the art on these cards. Aren't they simply gorgeous?

The link to the site is in the first line above. Click on each card featured below for a description and larger image. Here is the link to the deck at a glance.

I love these cards. I always get such cool little nuggets! It's definitely something I need to do soon as I plot the new Keldari story. I hope you find them as useful!

I keep meaning to order a set, but haven't done it yet. I love the artwork. :)
