You can sometimes receive Tarot Cards from fallen enemies. When an unit picks a card from the field, they receive a small permanent increase to their stats (except for LUCK, which is temporal). After being picked up, Tarot Cards become consumable items that can be used grant buffs or inflict debuffs, but cannot be sold or used with the Lobber. Rogues can also benefit from Tarot Cards by using them to make booby traps.
