While I wouldn't be surprised if it was a little bit of both, I bet it was mostly the former. Having Tarot have her long-needed slice of humble-pie served up by being simply upstaged at the moment of truth rather than being beaten or out-argued or whatever was nothing short of ingenious. That had to have been planned.
VERY well said. Whether planned or not, it seriously was incredibly satisfying.

It's OK, Karishad is the prophet of chaos. We can have both.

King looks an awful lot like my own Corgi. That's one reason why he's my favorite, but I also like his attitude.

Yeah, I don't know but i for one am actually really happy that tarot got upstaged. I just really hope this is the start of some growth and humility for her as a character as ive wanted that for a while now. It looks like this is the beginning of just that.

Don’t need anything, especially him.

And as much as Tarot has been uncharacteristically Type-A this whole arc in contrast to how nonchalant she usually is, even in high-stakes bouts like when she was fighting as the Spirit Dragon’s avatar (although I don’t recall how she was in the 5000 B.C. chapters), I honestly don’t really mind it and rather find her enjoyable. It’s just weird considering the focus seemed to have been on Sabrina at the beginning and then it switches to Tarot for some reason.

Great Kitsune returned to the pedestal, he's now a living statue who spies King, apparently. :P Eh, poor Tarot, hurted in the pride... :| Great Kitsune saved her, actually, but, was his a good idea to let Res attack The Forgotten? Also Dallas somehow saved her by using the teleporting.

"Cute" gets you off a lot of hit lists.

...and, along with his frequent nudity, he really rocks gameshow host attire. Pete and Dragon can vouch for that!

I still think Karishad is one of Kitsune's "incognito" forms.

I don't know if someone ever mentioned it, but according to wikipedia, Kitsune is the Japanese word for the Red Fox, which, it seems like, Karishad is. This fact would speak for the theory of Kari being Kitsunes prophet or something like that

Given how out-of-control Kari is by nature, I'm not sure how connected he is with Kitsune. Kitsune is, by nature, a mischievous creature but he's also quite complex and rational in the use of his powers. Kari is pure id, acting largely on curiosity and impulse. But...hey...what do I know? Regards.

But Japan doesn't think of "kitsune/Red Fox"s as red, they depict them as yellow/gold.

Hmm, looks like the red fox in Japan can be quite golden:

I'm still convinced that Kari is Kitsune's mortal agent or avatar, similar, if not the same way Tarot was for Dragon, but instead of being part of the game Kari is just Kitsune's partner in trolling.

Except the only reason the others did that was because of the games rules, and what would essentially be a DMPC in a PVP game is a little redundant. Also karishad doesn't seem to need powers, most of his shenanigans have been mundane varieties of bizarre.
Most important thing I've learned from D&D?
No matter how tempting it may be, as a DM I can't both present a problem and solve it.
Every time a DMPC or NPC fixes something a payer couldn't i'm diminishing and undermining that player's contribution.

Yes, I remember. In my defense, it's hard to come up with a decent joke when your brother is in your room loudly playing music on his phone.

I'm easily distracted, so the best I could come up with was a joke referencing some of the issues people kept bringing up regarding Tarot's character.
