triock: Niflmine - The Fool
BlueMooner - ALREADY REVEALED: MOON
ggf162 - Strength
Sachys - ???
misteryo - The Tower
Chimerical - ???
Sachys - look at Egorov and do some re-reading!
Chimerical - something he posted about himself.

Really final clue:
I decided not to use Tower - it's the worst card in the deck : )

Novotnus: Sachys - look at Egorov and do some re-reading!
I edited my post, but still no idea about Sachys. :I
I'm-going-to-bed bump : )
Now that's a cool way of picking winners, via Tarot :)

My guesses are as follows, after the clues:

Niflmine - Judgement - or Rebirth in your deck? Carpe Diem = Seize the day, for judgement could be at hand any time

BlueMooner - is this one The Moon? ;)

ggf162 - Strength, as it incorporates a giant cat/ lion in the image, embodying a Giant Zombie Cat :)

Sachys - I'm going for The Hermit. The figure in the stories is an isolated, hooded man who walks alone and sees what others don't, with the card image perhaps embodying a world closing in on him or the town he walks through (struggling with this as I can think of a few possible answers, although none feels quite right).

misteryo - The Fool, as the 'danger' sign fits with the image of someone about to walk off a cliff edge

Chimerical - the thirteenth card, Death, for a triskaidekaphobic

----
Just for interest, before you posted any clues I'd been thinking of the following:

Niflmine - The Hanged Man, as his entry was specifically for the copy of Cognition: The Hangman
ggf162 - Death, his avatar looks like a skeletal knight
Sachys - The Devil, as his avatar is pretty demonic with a screaming ape beast/ man hybrid
misteryo - Wheel of Fortune feels like it embodies his entry well - a sudden turning point in life and deciding to choose a new path, perhaps with more sinister outside forces attempting to guide things...

After you posted I realised I was totally wrong :D

Congrats to the winners (past ones and future one), and thanks again, Novotnus!

(as certain forum member said before, I'm way too lazy for this) :D

Timelord1963:
Timelord1963 - one hit (and correct reasoning behind it), + you are close but not quite right about Sachys.

So I made it hard for me again...
Maybe somebody wants to correct his\her guesses? How am I supposed to pick the winner now? : )

Novotnus:
Still time for wild guesses?

I'll probably change the one hit in a moment, but I'll to change Sachys to The Fool as I very nearly picked that last night (but couldn't think of a better match for misteryo's danger avatar than the cliff edge). However that fits Sachys story much better as the character later talks about falling over the edge of an abyss and a tentacled moster waiting below, exactly as your Tarot card depicts the Fool about to do.

If that's Sachys then misteryo can't also be The Fool; I would have picked The Tower to represent the danger sign but you hadn't used that. So the other thing written on his avatar is 'Men at work' which had made me think of that 'Land Down Under' song, in which case I'll pick The Hanged Man/ Selflessness for misteryo as he sees the world upside down... Yeah, that's not right :)

I'll keep the others as they were, Niflmine = Judgement/ Rebirth (I also thought Fallout Boy could maybe represent the child in this card if judgement day=apocalypse), ggf162 = Strength, Chimerical = Death.

You guessed many cards I used, but ascribed them to wrong logins : )

Hah, sounds about right for me :)

I'll try one last go with a virtual shuffle:
Niflmine: Science (nuclear fallout)
ggf162: Judgement, as it's your contest
Sachys: The Fool (as before)
Chimerical: Death (as before)
misteryo: The Sun (image looks a little like men working on a wall; still lost on this one!)

I won't change again as I think I've had too many goes (especially after a quick edit to change Niflmine after another look at your deck :)

Damn, I had somewhat the same guesses as Timelord... ;p
so, I'll just drop this here..

Niflmine - Wheel of Fortune
ggf162 - Strength
misteryo - The Magician
Sachys - The Fool
Chimerical - Death

Also, some thoughts, but to afraid to post... ;p
Lovely reading every entry! The amount of deduction and detective is impressive and very entertaining! Good luck to all of you with the giveaway!

Timelord1963:
You take the lead with two correct guesses!

Stooner:
You guessed one correctly : )
Also, The Fool, The Tower and The Magician were not used.
