This version of Tarot focuses on her fighting ability. She admits herself that she is not the most powerful witch, magic wise, around, but she has had quite a bit of training with the sword and in combat as a Swordmaiden of the Goddess. I also wanted to focus on the magical nature of her armor. Sure she goes to the same armorsmith as Red Sonja, but there is a magical aura about it that protects her all the same.

I opted for PL 9 here. She could not stand toe to toe with the likes of Zatanna or even Willow and Tara magic wise, but still has some room to grow her abilities.

ETA: I am also posting this on The Atomic Think Tank.

That outfit is well... yeah.

I've read through the DCA book and have ran one session. My friends and I are still working out the kinks, so I'm no expert. Still this build looks pretty solid.

I agree. Nice outfit. I'm really looking forward to picking up a copy of M&M.
