Throne of Skulls: The Emperor’s Tarot

Image result for the emperor of mankindWelcome, fellow Seer, to this most mystical of gatherings, for upon these days of reckoning, we shall be consulting the Emperor’s Tarot. A mystical deck of cards, it is said they were first designed by the most venerable Emperor himself, and may be used by those with the correct skills to divine the future.

Only the most powerful and devout of seers may use this hallowed scrying device, as it channels the Emperor’s very will and allows the holy diviner a measure of insight into His understanding of future events. 

It is whispered in darker circles that even the witch and the daemon also make use of the Emperor’s Tarot, but this is dismissed as the mewlings of weak minds, for the Emperor would surely not countenance his sacred devices to be even touched by such tainted hands. 

This weekend, we offer you the chance to manipulate your very own deck of The Emperor’s Tarot as you play exciting games of Warhammer 40,000. Will the cards fall in your favour or will you be damned for all eternity? Only time will tell…
