Welcome to the Tyrian Tarot, a project by the GW2 Artist Collective -- Officially Sponsored By ArenaNet!

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.

  • We are suuuuper excited about this project! And what a great roster you're starting out with already, NaviNation!

    Artists, I hope you'll sign up to participate! The project is exciting and I have every confidence the end product will be amazing.

    I can't wait to see the cards! Of course, we all know that Rangers, and Ranger Pets, will be a major component of every design, right? :D

    Some designs? :)

    Maybe one? ;)

    I'm sure someone could be convinced, haha! Thank you for your support. <3
    We've already gotten some of the art done and – though I'm a touch biased – I think it's awe-worthy. I'm very, very excited to see this come together, and glad you are too!
    (Apps close on Feb. 12th, as an aside!)

  • We've posted the card back designs on Tumblr and Twitter, created by Sara (Qesques)...

    But here's a linked version of one of the two (spoilered because it's huge):

  • There's just under 2 weeks left to apply! Thank you to everyone who has contact with interest or otherwise.
    We've also released a notification list if you're like me and don't check these threads all that much -- we'll send out an email with information when the funding campaign goes live (including early bird deals and more): https://goo.gl/Scv6Nm

    I would like to order a Tyrian Tarot package at, but the Indiegogo website does not accept other payment options than credit card it seems. I can only pay with PayPal, IDeal or bank transfer and I am stuck on the ordering page which asks me for a credit card name and number which I do not have. Can anyone help me here?

    Hey there - I actually made a post about this recently - https://gw2collective.tumblr.com/post/173045555968/faq-paypal-policies-with-indiegogo
    The only option we currently have outside of finding a friend is the post-order store, but there's no guarantee that we have anything there since we print in runs of 250. Please let me know if I can help you more specifically via email! ([email protected])

    If you were having issues with the payment system, we most likely will be opening a post order store (we have ironed out a good way to do so). That said, there still will be just a limited quantity since we'll be finalizing numbers at the end of the campaign, but we almost definitely will have at least a few. That said, if you add your name to the notification list, we'll let you know when we have them up (that period will be entirely first come, first serve due to quantity).

    Click here for that.

    We apologize that we can't do more to facilitate PayPal prior to the 22nd, but it's a matter of their policies (as outlined above).

    5 days remain on the campaign - we've added a full section of official Guild Wars 2 concept pieces, supplied by ArenaNet that were unlocked as stretch goals.

    Feel free to join the campaign still - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/tyrian-tarot

    ahhh too bad I come here too late and miss this project and it doesn't allow me to donate anymore. Is there any chance for me to support and buy this tarot card collection for now? :/

    Let justice be done though the heavens fall.

    Wow, what a huge success this event seemed to be! Great job!

  • Kagusaki.3176Kagusaki.3176 Member ✭✭

    I was glad that a guildie of mine told me about it the day before it closed! Of course, I ended buying two sets so I can use one and keep one unopened for my collection xD Did Anet ever sent out an email about the Tyrion Tarot cards? If they did, I would have planned everything out instead of buying at the last minute haha Glad to support the campaign and Guild Wars 2 ^^

    I'm glad you nabbed one! We had a mailing list for the opening of sales (we hit over 500 people with it right as we opened), and ArenaNet published a blogpost for us. We campaigned about a solid month beforehand. Feel free to keep watching our accounts! Our next two projects are scheduled. :)

    Yeah of course; cheers to hoping you organize another mass event again soon! :P I'd love to help out if needed!

  • Just a note here - shipping is starting to wrap up! NA has about 30 hours of shipping left; EU is steadily working through things. Just sit tight if you're in the remainder part of our queue... but thank you to everyone posting pictures! We've really enjoyed seeing everything. :)
