Creating A Divination System

Lately, I’ve been toying around with the thought of making my own divination system, since I can’t seem to find an existing one that ‘fits’ well enough with me and my path. For years I’ve used Tarot decks, but could never quite get past the Tarot’s origins as a (Italian?) card game. And I've always wanted something more personal and a bit less comercially driven. I always figured, well, if the tarot is really just someone’s elaboration on a deck of playing cards, than there isn’t a reason why I can’t create my own divination system in a similar way. Anyway, my musings got me curious about what others have done.

So my question is, have any of you ever created a divination system before, and if so, how did it go? Were you successful? What sort of problems (if any) did you come across?

For those who haven’t, what do you think of the idea? What basics does a divination system have to have to be usable?
