I'm looking for the name of a small, indie RPG that I came across a while ago. The game used tarot-like cards instead of dice. When something in the game needed to be decided, then cards were drawn and the results interpreted. I remember the game dealing with a lot of abstract concepts and archtypes. Can anyone direct me to the name of this particular game?

@SevenSidedDie Why not add the IDed game as a tag, after it's been confirmed as the correct answer? –  okeefe Jun 24 '12 at 18:08
Why is this getting reopen votes? Game-Id should be off topic. voting to delete. –  wax eagle Jun 25 '12 at 1:17
@waxeagle Game ID is off-topic? Are you sure? I thought it was on topic for RPG.SE. –  SevenSidedDie Jun 25 '12 at 3:32
@okeefe Because it pollutes the tag with questions that don't help people browsing system tags, and it gets into meta-tagging territory. So, even if it seems like it should have the tag, the retag adds zero utility while bumping the question. –  SevenSidedDie Jun 25 '12 at 3:36
@SevenSidedDie If I'm browsing system tags, I would be totally fine with people attempting to identify a game I'm interested in, especially if there were other answers that described similar games! –  okeefe Jun 25 '12 at 5:59

Sounds like "Everway," which came out in the mid-1990s from Wizards of the Coast.
