Strega's Loom: A Guide to the Sorte Deck

Strega's Loom: A Guide to the Sorte Deck

Suggested Price $4.00

The Sorte deck is a variation on the Tarot deck designed to be a core element of Vodacce culture, but there's no reason it can't also serve as an actual divinatory aid in the real world.  Presenting an analysis of the symbolism in each of the 78 cards, along with four suggested spreads with which to use them, Strega's Loom provides an essential guide to the meanings and uses of the Sorte deck.

Title updated 11/2018, to include additional text, charts for the minor arcana, and one additional spread.

Hi, just wanted to let you know I am doing a little extension of your work here in a forthcoming Explorer's Society piece on using Sorte layouts for narrative inspiration. I credit you extensively in the piece, but I wanted to just say thanks in "person" (well, as much as possible). Your analyses are really insightful and valuable. Thanks again!

I greatly appreciate the compliment -- and the attribution! I'm glad you've enjoyed my work! Let me know when you've posted your piece, please; I'm looking forward to seeing your perspective as well.

The updated version contains a number of grammar fixes, some expanded text, and summary charts for the minor arcana. May they prove useful to you as well!

Stellar resource. The symbolism analysis is really well done, with language that makes it easy to work with a spread for a character. Having reversed meanings as well adds a lot. I really appreciate the work that went into this.

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
