This is so beautiful, James!!! Thank you so much again for doing this, I still listen to this song time after time, and this remastering is really beautiful! Guys you should give this a listen!
Me and my friends started a DnD game and I’m playing a shardmind monk. I don’t really know what colour palette to give them… What do you think? (I’m partial to 2, 5, and 6.)
I did the Five of Pentacles, The Magician, and The Ten of Wands!
I tried to remain relatively close to the meanings of these cards. IIRC the 5 of pentacles has roughly to do with coming to blow with several obstacles, as well as dealing with loss, and perseverance. I can’t remember if I pitched the idea of that card or if it was given to me, but I knew that PM surrounded by the dead/injured bodies of her friends would be emotional and effective for the card. I think I worked on this card very shortly after [S] Cascade came out.
I know that I was told Doc Scratch should be used for the Magician and Ten of Wands cards. I still did some research to get some insight and found him to be really appropriate for them.
The Magician is described as a trickster (truly a Doc Scratch trait) and is often associated with action, power, practicality, precision, and manipulation. The Magician card is often depicted with a lemniscate above his head, representing life and infinity. Wikipedia describes the card as such:
In the Magician’s right hand is a wand raised towards heaven, the sky or the element æther, while his left hand is pointing to the earth. This iconographic gesture has multiple meanings, but is endemic to the Mysteries, symbolizing divine immanence, the ability of the magician to bridge the gap between heaven and earth.
So Doc Scratch holds up his broom raised towards the aether, while he poitns down at the earth, yadda yadda, you get it, right? I personally feel like he was a perfect choice for the Magician card.
As for the Ten of Wands, the Rider-Waite symbolism describes it as such:
A person overburdened by his enterprise, is nevertheless active and on the move, but not seeing past his wands (or obligations).
I suppose I see it as Doc Scratch fulfilling with his heavy burdens and obligations to Lord English. Instead of carrying a bundle of sticks as the Ten of Wands is normally depicted with, I gave him a pile of cue balls.
THANKS FOR THE QUESTION and the compliment! I am very happy to answer.
