This deck was inspired by the ancient traditions and noble lineage of the royal regime. One of my favorite things to do when traveling abroad is to visit the old castles to see how royalty resides. I love all of the decadent design that made that era so memorable.
This deck was designed card by card and is custom through and through. My intention was to create a deck that was familiar and comfortable during play. I kept the original elements that differentiate each of the different court cards. I did, however, completely redesign the specific pieces within each of the courts. From the subtle shapes in the crowns to the detailed patterns in their lavish attires - it has all been retouched.
I’ve been kickstarting things for years. I love the process of connecting with a community to make something great. We’ve created lots of different print series together.
So about three years ago I decided to change it up and try my hand at a deck of cards. This deck was one of the most challenging design projects I’ve undertaken. Most of my design work represents rather modern techniques. This, however, was a completely different design language that took some time to really get into. I received a lot of great feedback as well as some pretty challenging questions. After only a few days of funding my project, I decided to pull the plug and rethink the project.
This brings us to today: For the past three years, I’ve been carefully reworking the deck. Completely from scratch. I’ve worked closely with numerous people in the industry to truly understand what it takes to make a solid deck.
Without your support, these cards will never be more than a concept that started over three years ago. Please back this project, so we can finally bring these cards to life.

Risks and challenges
I've completed numerous Kickstarter projects over the years. I'm confident this project will be another successful endeavor. I've had the privilege of getting to know the right people in the business that are able to help bring these projects to life and fulfill backer rewards on time. I think the best way to run a project like this is to be transparent and maintain open communication with the community. So, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me directly here on Kickstarter.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
