Description

78 cards packaged as part of a set, accompanied by a 160 page, softcover companion book. The deck and book are housed in a two-part, lidded cardboard box.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 7.7 cm wide.

Card backs are reversible.

The card stock is flexible, with a smooth, mostly matte finish.

The suits (which the book refers to as the Four Leagues) are Airships (Swords), Engines (Wands), Submersibles (Cups), and Leviathans (Pentacles). Courts are Messenger, Navigator, Lady, and Captain.

The minors are fully scenic.

The major arcana are largely renamed to fit with the theme of the deck. Card VIII (8), the Engineer, is the renamed Strength card. Card XI (11), the Brazen Head, is the renamed Justice Card. The Fool is renamed the Apprentice, and is numbered 0.

My companion book is signed on the title page by both of the authors as well as by the illustrator.
