Welcome to The Magical Realms of Kelcross...

  ... where the lands and their peoples are imbued with elemental energies. By respecting the connections one has with the realms lands, one may become a Wizard/ess by learning to channel the wisdom that those elemental energies have to offer.

  To tap into the energy that is found within the lands or from within ones Self is a benefit that is available to all who respect those connections. However, most of us forget that we have access to that internal elemental wisdom.  Wether we are distracted by outside influences, caught up in waves of emotions or even trapped by dark mists of the mind trying to protect us, we may end up going down a path that we are unfamiliar with and find ourselves not knowing what to do.  To assist us in balancing the internal elemental energies, we can use a Wizard's of Kelcross most prized tool:  The LifeDeck of Kelcross.

The LifeDeck of Kelcross

  Every experience you have lived, every personality you have ever encountered and every lesson you have learned can be represented by the cards of one of the Wizards most prized tools, The LifeDeck. The LifeDeck by itself holds no power (as that is found within the ability of the Wizard to channel) and is but a reminder of the knowledge the Wizard has gained while journeying on their path.  A Wizard can channel that knowledge and find the power within to either create new life patterns or reinforce the ones that are present. Therefore, a Wizards true power is their ability to recognize what is present and, if they so choose, their ability to transform.

Why Kickstarter?

  I have been wanting to merge my 2 favourite passions (Tarot and Gaming) for quite some time but wanted to do it in such a way that would respect both genres without giving up the integrity of either field. The LifeDeck of Kelcross Tarot is the spark of life that came out of this project. Thanks to the wonderful endeavours of the following local artists, The LifeDeck is one step closer to becoming a reality:

  • Jordan Cameron (Fire)
  • Chelsea Ferguson (Water)
  • Ashley Heukshorst (Air)
  • Michelle MacCullum (Earth)
  • Courtney MacKay (Majum)

  I would love to offer this deck at a reasonable price but in order to do so, I would have to have it mass produced in order to get a 'bulk' pricing. This will allow me to reduce the cost of production and therefore, offer the LifeDeck of Kelcross Tarot at a reasonable price.

The Kelcross Academy

  It is my intention to continue to support this project after this Kickstarter is finished. I have created a Facebook Page named The Kelcross Academy in which people may use this as a medium to ask questions (either about The LifeDeck or regarding the game 'The Wizards Path'), share Tarot Spreads and, if people would like, share their readings.  By the end of this Kickstarter, you will also find the Fables of the Four, also known as the stories of the elemental Wizards in which each elemental path has been derived.  All this can be found at the following link:  https://www.facebook.com/kelcrossacademy

  If you do not wish to participate with The Kelcross Academy Facebook Page, that's ok as well. I will be using the updates feature to share different Tarot Spreads that I have created.

About the Designer

  Hello, my name is Serge Gagnon and I'm the designer of the LifeDeck of Kelcross Tarot. I have been reading Tarot cards for the better part of 30 years (professionally for over 15 years) and have been teaching people how to use the Tarot as a meditative tool for about 6 years.

Risks and challenges

I have printed a proof copy of the tarot deck, so I know that the quality and the finished project will be good. The printing time is estimated, as it varies depending on how much work is currently at the printers before my order goes in. As far as shipping is concerned, the products will be printed and shipped out of the United States or Canada so there should not be any major delays. However, should any issues come up, I will be quick to advise everyone of the situation and let everyone know what I'm doing to resolve any issues that arise.
