Quoted from Draconian & Knights kickstarter page.
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!
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.
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).
