Seeking some Lost Files

Quite a long time ago, in 2009, 2010, I had another wiki called "the Same Universe Wiki."  It included a list of tarot card results.

Those results are lost, except for what I posted on this blog.  These three pages:

And now I am forced to ask ... did anyone out there in the world save the complete list?  If you did, I would like to have it please.  I'd hate to have to rebuild the concept from scratch.  I remember it took a lot of research.

They were LOST?!

That is a tragedy on an epic scale. Telling my wife about the Tarot effects was the first time I'd gotten her to get as excited about your posts as I was!

Since 2009 I have had two hard drives completely tank on me. One, back in 2013, I couldn't get all the data off, because the drive was corrupted. I suspect it was on that drive.

But, like I say, I have an extremely old Pentium IV that I was still using for back-up as late as 2009-2010. It might be in there ... but that tower is in storage and inaccessible to me at the moment.

I checked Wayback Machine and found the page link, but the content appears to not have been saved.
Given that ScrewTurn has also been dead as a wiki platform for several years, the online content is certainly inaccessible (unless someone else archived it).

Those old drives can start to fail, though, so you may want to see if you can get it from there.

Tim, I certainly appreciate your expertise in this matter.

However, being like most I.T. guys, you've failed to realize I possess no knowledge of either of the sites you've mentioned. In effect, you're like a surgeon who, having shown me where the appendix is, has just handed me the scalpel and said, "Now you cut it out."

For that reason, do you think you may want to see if you can get it from there?

I used them for an amazing painted tarot deck I found in a shop.

I searched for the files on Dropbox but couldn't find em, probably because i started using it in 2011. I might have the files somewhere in an old HDD, if you want I can look for them but it might take quite some time to find where they are (and if I saved em).

I printed out a copy tho, that I used for a player that had the Tarot Reading skill. And I never trash anything D&D. So, if you are fine with a photo, I can look at my D&D closet and dig it out.

I am 100% fine with a photo. I can always reformat the content if I have the content. I'm looking for the rest of wands, plus pentacles, cups and the royal cards.

Alexis, did you ever get a copy of these files? If yes, can you make them available on the Wiki? Following recent conversations with the Deck of Many Things, I'm keen to take a stab at the Tarot skill for my game.
