Hi everyone, I wanted to introduce myself. I'm a puzzle, game, and tech enthusiast. I've been fascinated with tarot and Oracle decks since I was a teen. I am most compelled by the inspiration and storytelling aspect of tarot and Oracle cards. I'm currently publishing a roleplaying game that uses a custom Oracle deck, for example.

 

Does anyone have suggestions for good storytelling applications of tarot?

I'm not sure what you're asking here.
You read the cards, there's a little story there. It's not Wuthering Heights, but it's a rough sketch that applies to your question. But as far as appications go, no. You can't get any kind of narrative that could be generated by an app and be worth reading. Is that what you were asking?

I think what they meant was ways to use tarot to write fictional stories?

 

Even then it's not going to be any good, unless they bring a lot of writing talent to the table.
You can get a rough outline from the cards, but the wordsmithing is another matter entirely.

Yes, I happen to be using it to frame a situation for a roleplaying game quest, so the players themselves bring the story specifics, but the same is true of novels or short stories. The reading frames the situation, then the real work begins! 🙂
