Eternal Reign Playing Cards, Only 2 More Days on Kickstarter

Another intriguing deck being crowdfunded by Riffle Shuffle on Kickstarter. Eternal Reign Playing Cards are designed by Dhamas Adhitya and drops you right in the middle of a medieval kingdom, which is held under the eternal reign of four royal families, one for each suit.

Fully custom with beautiful artwork, the intricate card backs feature a central axis formed by a symmetrical drawing of two swords, driving right through the top of a skull. A golden sun shines from behind this image and seems to illuminate the four crowned lions standing on their back legs, as often depicted in medieval art. They hold a golden scroll, reading “Eternal Reign”. The pattern is balanced by four circles, one in each corner, showing the king’s hand holding the goblet.

The court cards represent four different kingdoms, divided by different suits. While the red suits - hearts and diamonds - depict living kings and queens, clubs and diamonds in black show the two underworld kingdoms reigned by the royalty’s spooky counterparts.

However, living or dead, they are all beautifully clothed in attire that equally fancy as it is ready for battle. According to the campaign page, there are many clever details are hidden on each card for the backer to discover.

The number cards have a classic sleek appearance with a couple of tweaks. While the numbers are written in an elegant swirling font, the images of the suits display small imperfections, giving them an appearance of being imprinted with a medieval stamp on parchment paper.

Ace of Spade flows around a large golden trident, stretching to the top of the spade with an ancient scroll unfolded across the picture. The design of the Aces gives an illusion that it is stamped on the surface, the fresh ink leaking slightly onto its surroundings. The ornate design consists of swirling wave-like ornaments forming the shape of a spade.

The Jokers might be the most symbolic cards of the whole deck. They are made up of two Jokers mirroring each other, both wearing masks over their faces. The top Joker, dressed in red, represents the kingdom of the living. The bottom Joker, wearing an icy blue dress and a clown hat might seem just the same on the first glance, but upon closer inspection, the mask hides a deadly smile of a skull.

The intricate deck comes in two versions, one of them takes you on a quest to the Ruby Empire, and the other one straight to the Sapphire Kingdom, the kingdom of the dead. These opposing forces are reflected right on the top of the decks. The king of the Ruby Empire and the skeleton ruler of the Sapphire kingdom will gaze at each other if you placing the tuck side-by-side as if challenging each other to an epic battle.

A wonderful tapestry of ornamental motives stretches across the whole surface of the premium tuck box. The filigree is accentuated by Gold Foil and Red/Blue Foil, on burgundy (Saphire Edition) or navy-blue (Ruby Edition) background with embossed details and stunning interior print!

Eternal Reign Playing Cards will be printed by Taiwan Playing Card Co (TWPCC) with their latest softer paper stock named the Luxury Stock. The thickness of the Luxury Stock will be very similar to the Bee Crush stock from USPCC. Ruby Empire and Sapphire Kingdom will be limited to 2000 decks each with Numbered Seals.
