Tarot - Single card spread
« on: February 12, 2008, 09:08:00 PM »
As the title says.
This script uses the major arcana displays a random tarot card image (No reversals) and a upright description along with a ill dignified one. I plan on making different spread scripts in the future with the full 78 card deck for anyone interested in knowing.

Suggested use I think it be best in a article with a sideblock linking to the article with something like shuffle & read and a image or something. Makes it feel more like a actual reading apposed to just having a random card appearing in a block every page refresh.
