Fun with Tarot Cards
Whoever wrote this sequence knew their Tarot.
- "[Chuck pulls out a card with a picture of a man with a vibro-blade and a flag] 'The Prince of Swords in the north...You must face a powerful foe far to the north'"
This is either the Military Base or the Lost Hills Security Bunker (The Brotherhood). Foe does not fit the Brotherhood, but then that is assuming the readings are that accurate. Walkthrough says "the Military Base (if you have not been there or found its location in the Cathedral vault)". If the Walkthrough can accurately be read as "the Military Base (is given) (if...", then then no one who has been to the Brotherhood, as I had, receives that location as a card reading. I counted out ten reloads through the sequence, with a handful before I started counting, and never got the fourth reading for the third location. Nor did I ever get any less, so at 8 Luck, anyway, the Vault Dweller always gets at least 2 locations.
- "[Chuck pulls out a card with a picture of a radio tower, and a card with a picture of a man in a suit with a scepter.] 'The Tower and the Emperor...great change awaits by the hands of a powerful leader. Whether that change is death, I cannot tell."
This is the Cathedral, which Chuck always shows.
- "[Chuck pulls out a card with a picture of a man dancing on a nuclear warhead.] 'The Fool. I cannot help you; you must make your own way in the world.'"
This is the reading that gives the +1 Luck.
The Fool in traditional Tarot dances on the edge of a cliff; he is oblivious to the danger, but he may pass unharmed, in part because he does not see the danger. Or he falls to his death. Like all card meanings, it is equivocal.
