Dear fellow cultists with your help Ace Collectable cards can channel all their energy to align the stars, to awaken the Great Cthulhu to once again continue his rule of earth.
Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!
Being a huge fan of his incredible work we wanted to make a deck from one of our most beloved horror fiction writers H.P Lovecraft!
This deck is very important to us so lots of love, horror, blood and human sacrifices has been put into every aspect of the deck from the art detail to the card quality and also turning the whole Ace Collectable team mad but such a small price to pay to gain unlimited power from the Cardnomicon!
We wanted to try something different and make each card contain a story scene from his amazing Cthulhu Mythos tales. Ace card being scene 1, Jack card being scene 2, Queen card being scene 3 and King card being the final scene.
To ensure that every card is of the highest quality they will be printed by USPCC and we will be using a fulfillment center. Default will be printed by USPCC and ultimately we want to hit our stretch goal so they can be BICYCLE.
We have expanded and gained a great team of artists, we will all work together to tackle this horrifyingly beautiful project.
USPCC has pre-approved our deck.
We wanted the Pips to also have more meaning of why it was chosen to represent each Character and deity.
Diamonds was chosen for Cthulhu as we find diamond's deep in the ground, metaphor for Great Cthulhu deep in the pacific Ocean.
Hearts was chosen for Shub-Niggurath as she is the elder god of fertility and mother of a thousand young, giving life and offspring.
Spades was chosen for Nyarlathotep as we see him as conniving, deceptive and never trust worthy so we wanted to make him into the spade suit as the spade reminds us of a tentacle like his faceless head, body shape and represent the sharpness of the spade point like his tongue as he can cause so much harm from his manipulating ways.
Clubs was chosen for Azathoth as he is described as the Nuclear Chaos, is a boundless deity of colossal proportion we pictured him sleeping in space while lesser entity's playing maddening tunes to keep his slumber we thought this pip would be the best one for him as it’s the largest and could potentially be the shape of his body as we pictured him in our imagination.
We are also offering a Limited Edition deck – CARDPHULU. We wanted to come up with a way to make the limited edition deck extra special for you and by making it an extremely limited print run where you will control how many limited edition decks there will be, As we will print the total of orders pledged for them from you our dear backers plus 100 additional decks. So these will be very rare once the campaign has finished and giving you the power to decide on how many limited edition decks there will be. Includes special cosmic artwork in the limited edition deck.
By supporting us not only do you encourage us to continue to make and craft more decks but every add-on will also help with the quality and the success rating of this campaign and will unlock stretch goals.
(For any Add ons please message us so we can add any Pledges to your order).
In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming:
The mighty sunken city of R’lyeh deep beneath the sea.
Now the stars are right, Great Cthulhu awakens and can be seen coming out of the gargantuan doors of the city of R’lyeh.
Great Cthulhu rising to the surface.
Great Cthulhu with his unimaginable power will resume his rule of earth again.
Transforming those that consume Shub-Niggaraths milk in to a different creature.
Her dark young resemble thick trees with many thick tentacles sprouting from the top, slobbering mouths on their sides. Her young are often present at ritual sites in deep woods.
The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young! Ia! Shub Niggurath!
Her worshipers are granted bountiful harvests and many children.
Whispers from Nyarlathotep (on the left) manipulation on the human species.
Tall, swarthy man who resembles an ancient Egyptian pharaoh, he wanders the Earth, seemingly gathering legions of followers, the narrator of the story among them, through his demonstrations of strange and seemingly magical instruments.
He has a thousand other forms.
An outer god.
Azathoth surrounds by the lesser entity's who's purpose is to endlessly play the acoustic flutes and maddening drums to keep Azathoth slumbering.
Keeping Azathoth asleep.
Cultists of Azathoth.
The primal chaos.
Limited Edition deck - CARDPHULU extremely limited print run will be dependent on you.
Also to make this campaign as smooth as possible we have decided to still include a limited deck but to make them even more special the limit will be by how many backers have pledged and add 100 decks more. So for example if only 50 backers have backed Limited edition decks then 50 + the 100 decks on top will mean there will be only 150 Limited Edition decks. We will be printing the limited edition decks with either MPC or NPCC or EPCC or a different printing company due to the fact I want to do my best complete our first USPCC deck and to decrease as many possible problems and will be completely dependent on the outcome of the total amount of Limited Editions needed for our dear backers.
