Vampires

Description

78 cards + a title card and an advertising card + an LWB in a standard cardboard tuck box.

Cards measure 12 cm tall x 6.6 cm wide. The card stock is very flexible, with a smooth, mostly-matte finish. This deck could easily be riffle-shuffled.

The card back design is non-reversible.

Suits are Chalices, Swords, Wands, and Pentacles. The court cards are Knave, Knight, Queen, and King.

The minor arcana are scenic, with a nod here and there towards the RWS. I wouldn't call this an RWS-style deck, however. It's telling its own story; I just wish the story was explained more fully in the LWB.

Speaking of the LWB, a misprint occured in the numbering of Strength and Justice. In the LWB, Justice and Strength are listed their correct order, but given the wrong numbers. Justice should be VIII and Strength should be XI. However, the LWB misnumbers them, which is confusing. The numbering on the cards themselves is correct.

Note: I have a duplicate copy of this deck, in a slightly more worn box.
