I'm happy to announce the biggest changes in the past few weeks!
SHORT DESCRIPTIONS FOR TAROTS
Yes - that's right, you no longer have to read a 2000 character description to learn the ways of the cards. You can now receive a shorter description instead (note: not all decks support short descriptions yet, but most should - I'm still debating if I should blacklist the decks that don't have short descriptions when a user has specifically requested short).
It's very simple - just add the -short tag to the end of your command, e.g ?tarot randt -short (you can also use -long for long descriptions, or -key for keywords-only).
For slash commands, /tarot pull deck:randt detail:[pick your option]
AsterieBot is, as it stands, the only bot on discord that is able to provide in-depth cartomancy pulls, with both optionally long and short descriptions, or keyword-only pulls if you so choose.
Discord is - whether we like it or not - forcing the majority of bots to use slash commands by April 2022. Slash commands are initiated by typing
/. Slash commands will replace "message", or normal prefixed commands. Until April however, Asterie intends to support both.
Slash commands are an alternative way of using bots. They are somewhat convenient, in that it makes it clearer and easier to understand exactly how a command works. For example, typing /tarot pull will display all 4 available options https://i.imgur.com/kYNKRTP.png - deck is how you choose your deck. The rest are optional: num is the num of cards you wish to pull (default 1), detail is the amount of detail you want (long description, short, keywords only), and you can choose upright or reversed (default random).
/astrology will show a pop-up menu with all the astrology signs. You don't need to type anything - you can just click the sign name then click enter. etc.
@AsterieBot is a divination-focused bot, specialising in providing in-depth meanings and explanation behind the cards (tarot, oracle, and lenormand), runes, and other divinatory systems it's capable of.
Asterie is the only Tarot bot on discord that allows you to choose between 1) long, detailed descriptions, 2) short, easier to read descriptions or, 3) keyword-only tarot pulls. The bot has a wide variety of decks and multiple rune sets, as well as an 8-Ball command, hieroglyphic divination, daily horoscopes (with multiple horoscope providers), astrology & tarot memes, & other misc commands.
I will always strive to add more decks (tarot, oracle, lenormand, etc), if possible more runic systems, and other divinatory systems (e.g hieroglyphic divination, ancient greek letter divination, i-ching, etc). This is a time consuming task but the bot is a long-term project that will be continually added to.

/to view the list of slash commands.
/tarot ban. Mods can also force tarot pulls to be simpler, keyword-only pulls or short description-only pulls (as opposed to length ones) in channels where overly detailed tarot pulls might be disruptive (see
/tarot detail_setting). Works similarly with rune pulls.
Some example card pulls https://imgur.com/a/vtNIpmo using the 'random' feature (
?tarot random), though you can call a specific deck directly as well. The list of decks is continually expanded, and there is also an assortment of rune sets to use as well!
Users can pick between short description, long description, or keyword-only tarot pulls.
(note: slash commands are also supported. You can use slash commands by typing
/, instead of
?, and a list of them should pop up explaining what they do and how to use them)
