Salt (for the Jacks), Sulfur (for the Queens) and Mercury (for the Kings) are the three basic ingredients of the alchemist. This PCDB entry is for the uncut Lux version of the deck, there also was a Noctis version and standard decks of each. In addition, there was a VERY limited subset of both

The Honeybee Deck was the first-ever custom deck created by Penguin Magic in 2015. Designed by Randy Butterfield, the original Yellow deck sold out in a mere two days! A few months later we debuted the Black edition deck, which also sold out quickly. Now we are happy to announce Honeybee V2 via this Kickstarter campaign. If you read no further, here is what you need to know: The V2 design is very similar to the original Honeybees, but the card backs are now BORDERED instead of borderless. We are making the V2 Honeybees available in both Yellow and Black during this campaign so that you can choose one, the other, or both. Each of the V2 standard decks has a custom honeycomb back design. Instead of a diamond Bee pattern, the deck features a beautiful honeycomb complete with 2 realistic honeybees walking on the back. You can almost taste the honey as you gaze at the backs!

Like the original deck, BIJOUX is inspired in the historical and mythological characters some believe were used for the creation of the first decks in Rouen during the 16th century. As for the art style, it was inspired by Art Nouveau jewelry. Art Nouveau is a style of decorative art, architecture and design promoted and popularized in Paris in the late 19th century and characterized by intricate linear designs and flowing curves based on natural forms.
Who is Krampus? In the early Christmas traditions of Europe, the Krampus was St. Nikolaus' dark servant -a hairy, horned, supernatural beast whose pointed ears and long, slithering tongue gave misbehavers the creeps! Whereas St. Nikolaus would reward children who'd been good all year, those that had behaved badly were paid a visit by the Krampus.
