I have this amazingly cool brother who is 17. For many years I have been following his love of HP and we are debating it on Facebook this very evening.

Very diverting stuff.

I like Harry Potter....he loks just like my Bro...Marcus.

Sans wand, naturaly. Bro carries an alto sax. And a pair of aviators.

He cool!

Perhaps....

I never noticed your signature until now! (Or was it not there before?)

But siriusly (heh), I'm hoping for the "Gryffindor" bag. The one I bought online for my Golden deck is red velvet with a gold velvet lining, and I love it. I obsess a little, haha.

I will cherish whatever I get though.

I've had my touchstone for about 24 hours now and have done a couple one card draws for people on the trade train last night. So I want to expand on my first impressions.

While I obviously adored the deck from the beginning I wondered about the readability. When I looked at the cards they didn't seem to tell a story. But now after drawing a couple cards for myself and doing the couple on the train yesterday I can safely say they read great!!

What I found was they read differently than any other deck I've had. Each card really is like a person......and you have to give that person a chance to speak.

Now though I'm wondering how they'll do in a larger spread.....as I've only done one card readings. Because the one card talks up a storm. How will more than one card readings work? Will it be like a crowd of people all trying to talk at once? LOL

Oh and after my reaction to the Knight of Swords yesterday......guess who I got today as my card of the day? Yep, the Knight of Swords.

I need to try and shut up so I can hear what they have to say more clearly.

Yes, I agree that they read very differently than any other deck I've ever had.

I just now noticed the raised type you all talked about. I had forgotten about it, but was "petting" my new deck. And turned it just right into the light and saw the raised type. I love it!!

As for doing spreads and readings......I think the max number of cards I'll use, at least for now, will be 3. I can't even imagine trying to understand what they all would have to say in a Celtic Cross!

You said you were petting it...but that you turned it to the light and saw it.

So...you did feel it, did you not?

That was a nice nice touch!

Of course once I noticed how it looked I had to see if I could feel it.......and yes I could!!

I love the way it shuffles too!

Oh! And I got Eugenia Madora and franniee to each buy one, just by raving about it on the trade train last night! ROFL

I've been looking at each card very intently, at the raised printing. It looks to me it's the black parts that are raised and causes all the effect! Where there is no black in the card that effect isn't there. Where it meets the edges and other colors is where the raised part comes into play. It's very cool! I love how it looks on the Death card, it looks very eerie and foreboding!

In the From the Artist card I noticed "Kat" or Queen Elizabeth I is holding a black chalk or charcol? Is it too look like she just signed her name and the deck number? That's what it looked like to me .

She is holding a Touchstone - although I'm sure you could only know that if someone told you!

Aha! It looked to me like she had just finished signing her name and the deck number! But a Touchstone makes more sense!
