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 reversible.

Strength is VIII and Justice is XI. The Fool is numbered 0.

Suits are Swords, Chalices, Wands, and Pentacles. The court cards are Infanta (Page), Knight, Queen, and King.

The minors are scenic, but do not follow any discernable tradition. 

This deck, by the way, is incredibly distasteful. Even at the time it was published, this would have been (or at least should have been) considered unacceptable in its misogynistic depiction of women and insensitive, sometimes racist depiction of historical, non-European cultures. 

If you are a fan of dragons and fantasy art, don't buy this deck--you'll be disappointed.

Note: If you are wondering why I own a copy, given my strong dislike of it, I bought it at a very deep discount many years ago without having first looked closely at the cards.
