It's Secret Jackalope season again! And boy is this a doozy: evil scientist 42 asked for Major Arcana names for an alternative science fantasy or cosmic horror or sword&planet vibe Tarot deck. Just the names/titles for the 22 cards. Of course, if you are a true jackalopist, you do a full art series with pages and pages of divination instructions!
Easy. I've got that in a day, prob'ly.
