My name is Randy Butterfield, and I've been designing premium Playing Cards in my free time for nearly six years now. My newest project is a 3 Deck Set that includes a new version of my popular Dragon-inspired design (the Draconians), and a pair of all new designs - the Knights Decks. ALL Decks, AND the 3-Deck Case for the Kickstarter-Exclusive GILDED Set, will be printed by Legends Playing Card Co., with their TAIWAN PRINTER (and with their Classic Finish).

I've always been a fan of Fantasy literature. Some of my favorite authors include J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin and Raymond E. Feist. The original Draconians were a nod to the captivating Dragons in their stories. I think of the Knights Decks as spinoff designs of the Draconians. They're the brave Knights that risk life and limb to protect their lands from the dangerous Dragons!

DRACONIAN WILDFIRE TUCK BOX:

The Draconian Wildfire Deck exudes the energy of an intense green fire. The Tuck Box will be printed on a premium soft-touch smooth paper stock. The printing features on the Tuck includes Green FOIL, PANTONE Grey and a UV Spot Ink overlay (and an Embossing Stretch Goal). For a closer look, here's a link to the Draconian Wildfire Tuck flat.

 

 

DRACONIAN WILDFIRE CARDS:

The Draconian's Back Card features a Borderless optical illusion design formed from Dragon Scales. The Face Cards feature random fire / crackle fissures of Green over a full-bleed Black background. The fissures are also incorporated into the designs of the PIPs, Courts, Ace heros and Jokers. The Classic Courts are flanked with the Dragon scales spiral-shaped designs. Everything comes together to create a cool look that is also very playable! More images of the Draconian Wildfire Cards can be found at the bottom of this project page (including the Jokers).

FURY & RAGE KNIGHTS TUCK BOXES:

The Tuck Boxes for both Knights Decks will be printed on a shiny Silver Foil material. Truly a pair of Knights in shining armour! Each Tuck will feature a different 4-Color Process design that's printed directly onto the Silver Foil material (and an Embossing Stretch Goal). If you've ever seen the Tuck Box for my buddy Max's Bicycle Metal Deck with CPC, you know how the final effect should look (click here to see the Metal Deck's Tuck). The Knights Tucks should look amazing!!

The designs for the Knights Tucks incorporate a Chainmail background for the Fury, and an Etched Armour background for the Rage. The Fury Deck features a green accented shield and a Stag Head for his crest. The Rage Deck features an amber accented shield and a Bull Head for his crest. Each design includes its Knight's preferred style of weaponry - Battle Mace for the Rage Knight, Medieval Axe for the Fury Knight (sorry fellow GOT fans, no Ice-Tipped Spear). For a closer look, here's a couple links to the Rage Knight and Fury Knight Tuck flats.

 

 

FURY KNIGHT CARDS:

The Fury Knight Back Card features a Chainmail background and a head-to-head layout of the Fury Knight's shield, Stag Head crest and Medieval Axe. The Face Cards for the Fury Deck have a metal texture with green full-bleed coloring. The PIPS have a silver metallic look, and are inlaid with Rivets. The Spades and Clubs have full coverage of green throughout. The Hearts and Diamonds have large center areas with amber coloring. The green and amber color variances help with reading between the suits and overall playability. I used an older Courts Set for the Jacks, Queens and Kings. I felt the old-school design fit perfectly with the rest of the design elements. More images of the Fury Knight Cards can be found at the bottom of this project page (including the Jokers).

 

 

RAGE KNIGHT CARDS:

The Rage Knight Back Card features an Etched Armour background and a head-to-head layout of the Rage Knight's shield, Bull Head crest and Battle Mace. The Face Cards for the Rage Deck have a metal texture with grey full-bleed coloring. The PIPS have a silver metallic look, and are inlaid with Rivets. The Spades and Clubs have large center areas with green coloring. The Hearts and Diamonds have large center areas with amber coloring. The green and amber color variances help with reading between the suits and overall playability. Similar to the Fury Deck, I used an older Courts Set for the Jacks, Queens and Kings. More images of the Rage Knight Cards can be found at the bottom of this project page (including the Jokers).

LIMITED GILDED TRIO SET

For my ROME campaign last year, I offered Gilded Decks. It was my first experience with Gilded Decks, and I was blown away at how beautiful they turned out (seen here)!!

The Knights / Draconian GILDED TRIO SET is LIMITED TO ONLY 150 total sets (145 available). It is also a Kickstarter-Exclusive item! Like with the Gilded Rome Decks, Gambler's Warehouse will be handling all of the Gilding work. Each GILDED TRIO SET will include the 3 GILDED Decks AND a shiny Knights / Draconian 3-Deck Case. The 3-Deck Case will be printed 4-Color Process on the same Silver Foil material that we'll use for both Knights' Tucks. Shiny!! I will also hand-sign and hand-number each 3-Deck Case. For a closer look, here's a link to the 3-Deck Case FLAT.

 Each LIMITED GILDED TRIO SET will include:

  • 1 GILDED Draconian Wildfire Deck (Black Gilded Edges)
  • 1 GILDED Fury Knight Deck (Green Gilded Edges)
  • 1 GILDED Rage Knight Deck (Silver Gilded Edges)
  • 1 Draconian / Knights 3-Deck Case (printed on Silver Foil, hand-signed & hand-numbered)

ALL Decks, AND the 3-Deck Case for the GILDED Trio Sets, will be printed by Legends Playing Card Co., with their TAIWAN PRINTER (and with their Classic Finish). The Classic Finish is a softer and slicker paper. It's more comparable to a vintage Bicycle Deck. This will be my fourth time printing with Legends Playing Cards. They do an amazing job!!

KNIGHTS 2-SIDED COIN:

The Knights 2-Sided COIN will have a 2" Diameter, and will have a shiny Silver Finish. The Front side will contain the Fury Stag Head design, and will have Black and Green Enamel accents. The Back side will contain the Rage Bull Head design, and will have Black and Amber Enamel accents.

Risks and challenges

FULFILLMENT - The Draconian & Knights campaign will be fulfilled from Texas, by Gambler's Warehouse. They do an excellent job, and have worked with many Kickstarter Playing Card projects.

This will be my fourth time working with Gambler's Warehouse for fulfillment, and my fifth time printing with Legends Playing Cards. So we should have a good system ready to go.
