I feel I definetly need to learn more, so I'm sneaking my way into this thread, albeit 5 chapters too late!

Using: Hanson-Roberts deck.

1. Which card are you most attracted to?
I feel the most bonding with the Page of Swords. She seems focussed, intelligent and daring. She has a piercing stare, and a self-confidence that is easy to like.

2. Which card would you like to avoid?
I cannot feel any attraction to the Knight of Rods. He seems to fully immersed in his own quest, his golden armour shining, and his horse taking him away. He may feel like he is riding the quest for someone other than himself, but in doing so he has turned his back on me.

3. Which card do you feel the most comfortable with?
Queen of Swords. There is something in her coldness that shows warmth.

4. Which card do you feel talkative towards?
The Queen of Rods seems a gentle figure, down to earth, and accepting of any differences between herself and me. Her cat and flower are well cared for, and her subtle smile shows a comforting amusement at my presence.

5. Which card do you feel secrecy and solitude about?
The King of Pentacles. His preoccupation with his own affairs, and deep worry is too private to share with anyone, let alone trust them.

6. Which cards seem aloof or rude?
Queen of Pentacles
Knight of Rods
King of Rods
King of Pentacles
Page of Rods
Knight of Swords
Queen of Cups

7. Which cards do you feel welcomed and warmed by?
Queen of Rods
Page of Swords
King of Cups
Knight of Cups
Page of Cups
Page of Pentacles
Knight of Pentacles
King of Swords
Queen of Swords

dialogue...eesh, its hard to choose!
I have selected the Page of Cups and the Knight of Swords for
my dialogue

The Knight has returned from a hard day of campaigning with the King of Cups and his army, as part of the Suits-Exchange arrangement...Having removed nothing but his helm and shield, he sits in the garden to collect his thoughts.
The Page of Cups happens to pass by, and stops
PC: *looking abashed*

PC: *Still looking abashed*
KS: *looking up*. " Can I help you in some way, esquire?"
PC: *Stuttering*" A.A..Are you the b.brave Knight of Swords, m'Lord?"
KS: "I most certainly was the last time I checked, my girl. Have you perhaps heard of me, in this distant land?"
PC: "Why yes, Sir Knight Sir. I always listen the King's speeches when I attend upon him, and he frequently mentions your legendary exploits. Why..."
KS: "Go on..."
PC: "Why, I was so enraptured by the stories of your bravery, I spilt wine all over His Majesty's side of beef..."
KS: *Laughs*
PC: *blushes*" I fear that I ever let my mind wander..."
KS: " To be honest, the Dragon of Blue Crag was nothing more than a big lizard, really...Quite a dumb beast, though troublesome to the ordinary peasant. As soon as I heard of its presence, I saddled my valiant Warhorse and set out to vanquish the beast. Done by teatime. Rather a pitiful affair, really."
PC: *flushes*" And now you retire to the gardens, to admire their beauty, and compose poetry with your skilful mind?"
KS: *snorts*"Poetry? Pah! I came out here to think about bravery."
PC: *blushes again* " Forgive me, m'Lord. I have dabbled with poetry myself, though I am only passing fair, since I head my King name it as one of the Knightly virtues..."
KS: *under breath* "sentimental old fool..."
PC: ...and after all, I hope..."
KS: *breathes on vambrace and begins polishing* "Yes?"
PC: "I hope one day to become a knight myself, sir"
KS: *chokes, Laughs, and chokes even harder* " A Knight!? You? By God girl, you haven't the strength to lift my cuirass, never mind my Sword!"

servant enters..."Sir Knight! The Black Dragon has left its lair, and is terrorising the villagers North of the City!"

KS: *rising rapidly* "Then I must go forth, and destroy it! Fetch my warhorse! Sound the Bugles!..."
KS: *exits*

PC: *looks at servant* "Tell me, man. Is not the Black Dragon some five hundred feet in length, and possessed of a breath of lightning, and claws of steel?"
Servant: "Why yes, milady"
PC: *flushes* "How Brave!"

I'm not cynical, really!
