I’m about to spew a bunch of shit so at least make an attempt to follow along or not idc. Just my thoughts.
So we need to base it off of the Tarot card suit of Cups. That’s definitely not coming off the table. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suit_of_cups
A lot of the suit reads emotional and really “down to earth” interpretations.
Now this can be either good or bad; let me elaborate.
Where we are now, the party is more experienced with the viewing of material things as useless (due to souls returning to the wheel in the end). We also know that most of the time, an abundance of material possessions (rich men) are often associated with the Mara. [spoiler]The Mara hates Oblivion. The Fountain loves it. Oblivion means no possessions yada yada yada. You get the whole deal.[/spoiler] When I say down to Earth, I both literally and physically mean it. People invested with their current life, and people just fucking chilling out smokin’ opium. Down to Earth and “down to earth” ;).
Because we have this new court, we can bring a more positive attitude towards life and celebration and shit like that as opposed to the negative reflection of it. Maybe the court of cups has like an ideal lifestyle or something and all like love and shit and emotion etc. can be good ish for a change. This could mean hula girls.
Ok nice what else
So I guess the Suit of Cups also has a big religious affiliation with it?
WE CAN WORK WITH THIS
Remember how I said it’s paradise?
listen to this: We keep the demon worshipers of material things; HOWEVER, we also mix in a bunch of cup affiliated priests. Then, we can like have the challenge of trying to decipher the Mara from the Cups and we can have a whole thing built off of that. Maybe we have like a Spanish Inquisition inspired type of deal and we have all of the cup guys go out and try to find the mara people but like their all rich priests so they end up turning against their own and may or may not kill off a few innocents or something. Then it can be like witch hunt/ Spanish inquisition inspired.
Also Pirates and Kuo-toa type shit. Can’t forget those guys.
And Dragon Turtles. https://www.reddit.com/r/DnDBehindTheScreen/comments/3fbka4/dragon_turtle/
I’ve got a whole bunch of other ideas, but for now, this is what my brain could shit out. I hope you could interpret it all.
Edit: also mermaids.
