Current Status Update: Official funding has closed -- the campaign ended as the highest grossing tarot campaign in Kickstarter & Indiegogo history >>https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tyrian-tarot >> You can still get the deck at the post-campaign store: https://tyrian-tarot.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders
What is this? The GW2 Tarot Club is the project for Summer 2018 under the GW2 Artist Collective (producing Tyrian Tarot). The cards feature Guild Wars 2 illustrations in the full Major and Minor Arcana sets, for a complete 78 cards, with an addition of 25 wild cards and a custom title card. Subjects of the cards are based on the meaning of the individual cards (which we’ve based on the Tarot of Marseilles), and will have their explanations in an accompanying 250 - page book.
The collaboration will involve around 68 artists from all over the world. We will again be selling the project for a charity of the contributor group’s choice (we are donating to IFAW!). (History reference: We donated 2.1k to MSF with Chimes, the Wintersday Fanzine 2017, which is run under the same Creative Partner).
With the Artist Collective, I invite back illustrators from project to project, so you'll often see reoccurring faces, but we'll always leave 20+ spots open to people who are new to our collaborations. With that, we've already released our invited & reinvited list for this project. Feel free to welcome them!
Highlights (will update as necessary):
* We have a post-campaign store open until June 11: https://tyrian-tarot.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders
* It launched on April 15th (World Art Day) to crazy success - it fully funded in 5.5 hours, and completed all of its original stretch goals in 2 days!
Feel free to email any questions to [email protected], or DM them on Twitter to twitter.com/GW2Collective or Tumblr at gw2collective.tumblr.com. We are always reachable and will answer any question as thoroughly as we can.
