The 3rd and 4th reading are about different people, yet both have "Queen of Cups".

The original interpreter also does this.

Occurs in the floppy edition under ScummVM, and its original interpreter, too.

Quick and dirty way to skip to reading 3.

  • Create a new character. Any kind.
  • Wake up in the starting room.
  • Set plot flags for having seen reading 1 and reading 2 (297, 298).
    • vv g 518 96
  • Teleport into the tarot room.
    • room 475

Everything in message pool 475 is noun:1 verb:6. Only cond and seq vary.

Reading 3

  • 31,1: "Ah, the mystery woman will now be revealed. Let us see that which was her distant past."
  • 32,1: "In her past, she has been dominated and defeated. Her Significator card reinforces this impression of tragedy, of some cruel event that shaped her life."
  • 33,1: "Strength is the card of courage and defiance. That which bound her in the past could not break her. She gained her freedom not through luck, but through her own actions."
  • 33,2: "This is a woman with great inner qualities. The tragedy of her past has molded her present, but she alone has shaped her life through fortitude and determination."
  • 34,1: "The sign of the Magus, the master of magic and self. She has great power and self-confidence."
  • 34,2: "This can also imply self-deception and illusion, as well."
  • 37,2: "It seems that our mystery woman is falling in love with someone. This is not what she was striving for; it is something in addition to her current goals."
  • 39,2: "What she desires and what she will gain through her actions are very different things. She cannot see that she is seeking an illusion, and should she attain her goal, she will ultimately lose."

Reading 4

  • 44,1: "The Ace of Cups is the sign of overflowing joy and happiness. This is a woman who uses her power joyfully, giving gracefully and lovingly to others."
  • 44,2: "She is generous and loving, and she has shown this through her use of magic. This woman gives from her heart."

Reading 1 establishes each card.

  • "Queen of Cups"
    • 11,1: "The Queen of Cups - again there is a female influencing your present. This is a woman of wisdom and love. She is kind, generous, and virtuous."
    • 12,1: "The Star is a symbol of hope and spiritual influence. This is a woman in touch with her magical nature. She is gentle and loving, yet there is great strength within."
    • 12,2: "This is a woman who generates hope and help through her actions."
  • "Queen of Swords"
    • 13,1: "The Queen of Swords is a woman of wit and skill. Yet she has suffered through terrible hardship, and she is marked by her suffering."
    • 13,2: "She faces her sorrows bravely, but with a deep loneliness."
    • 14,1: "The Moon is the card of deception. This woman is a deceiver, or is deceived by her own beliefs. This card also reveals the magical nature of the woman - this is the strength which sustains her."
    • 14,2: "She is either surrounded by false friends, or seeks to betray you herself. She is the victim, or the villainess."
  • "The High Priestess"
    • 7,2: "The High Priestess is some woman of your past. She is a person of selfishness and passion. Someone who seems to be very powerful, but her knowledge is limited by her own conceit."
    • 8,1: "The Four of Coins is the card of the miser. This woman of your past has power, but uses it selfishly. This is a person who cares only of her own needs and wants, and does not care what she does or how she influences others."
    • 8,2: "This person is one who, as long as you satisfy her needs and vanity, will be willing to aid you, providing it does not require any amount of effort on her part."
    • 8,3: "However, if you act against her, her vengeance will be swift and violent."

Reading 2 refers to "Queen of Swords" as "the mystery lady".

Clearly reading 4 is "Queen of Cups".
And reading 3 should be "Queen of Swords".
