Tarot cards have existed in many forms for centuries. The tarot deck is somewhat similar to the one used in the the 15th century Italian game of tarocco, but the true origin of the tarot remains shrouded in mystery.
The ubiquitous deck of playing cards is derived from the tarot deck, swords becoming spades, cups becoming hearts, etc. The archetypal imagery and symbolism within the cards, particularly the major arcana, connects deeply to what Jungians call the collective unconscious, reflecting a myriad of religious beliefs and mythology.
The tarot cards have many uses, often for telling Fortunes or Stories.
Swansong is designed to be played with the tarot. Its stories are derived from the cards themselves.
