Tarot Deck

Obtained by compiling a full set of Tarot cards (50AP); see Quest: Collecting Cards.

  • Tells you where the nearest monster of your choosing has last been sighted (for 10 AP). This may not be where you will actually find the nearest monster of that type – it may die of old age, or a new one may spawn nearer to you. Monsters that are not known to currently exist do not show up on the Tarot. (This is fairly common with heavily hunted monsters like the Treemen.).
  • If you get the message "you fail" instead of a monster location then the monster exists but in an untarotable area (generally areas where the intrinsic GPS does not work and including Cloud Land, Space, the Understuff and the Trail of Trials – where there is often a treeman, or the central area of Cities, inside the Death Mountains, where the GLs sometimes keep test monsters. The test monsters are most vexing; they do not die of old age because nobody can go and look at them, and they prevent accurate taroting over long distances in the main 'kingdom area.)
  • Shows you the HP of monsters in your sight.

  • A Tarot Deck, once compiled, cannot be traded or sold. Individual cards can, and fetch a pretty penny on the Markets and in Brighthelm.
  • Space monsters appear in the Tarot Deck if at least one of them currently exists, but you cannot use the Deck to locate them. Nevertheless, this is a useful way to determine whether any currently exist.
  • Some monsters don't appear in the Tarot Deck at all: Grue, Mötley Grüe, So Solid Grue. (Others? Please contribute.)
    • Kangaroos don't show up on it, although I apparently need one for my Trophy Cabinet. Brandy 23:28, 18 February, 2014
      • the n0rx all appear somewhat confusingly at the end of the Tarot, down below Zu Warrior, just after Asteroids, and before Mirror Monsters. AmishRobots 11:36, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
flt-> is the distance the tarot deck shows the direct distance (pythagorean formula) or the number of squares
      i have to walk down and left?
darksatanic> It's pythagorean.
  • When used in the Golden Condor, results may be quite surprising, because the interior of the Golden Condor is actually a tile with coordinates nowhere near those of the terrain over which it's hovering.
You spread the cards...
The cards indicate that the nearest one is about 722
squares away to the South West.
