Maybe it is when I grew up and was thinking about all this stuff (the late 70s early 80s) I associate witches and tarot cards.
There is no really overt connection, but they seem to go well together if you ask me.
I have used Tarot cards in my games and even made a suggestion on how to use them instead of dice while playing Ghosts of Albion. Tarot decks work rather well for Unisystem since the dice mechanic is a straight d10 (1 to 10 roll).
I have a couple of tarot decks laying around and even a book or two, but I never really use them anymore. Maybe I should. I used to use them all the time when playing Ravenloft.
Do any of you use tarot in your games or books?

Typically though they wear more armor than this.
I know some people complain about Tarot's proportions. And yes they are ridiculous.
But they are also based on the artist's own wife, so maybe this is how he see's her. Since she is one doing the coloring in the comic maybe she does as well.
