I've been working on a custom playing card deck with a friend for about two years. Everything is pretty much done and I'm looking to launch a Kickstarter on January 10, 2017. That said, please take a look below... I would appreciate any feedback you might have!
FACTIONS is a beautifully illustrated and designed deck of 56 playing cards, featuring iconic images of characters and suits themed to a world of fantasy. While FACTIONS contains all the cards in a traditional playing card deck, we’ve also included two additional Jokers so that each suit in FACTIONS has a unique take on this castaway card--an elite warrior from each Faction riding into battle on its mount.
Each card has been carefully colored in a worn watercolor style. This coupled with the varied background texture ensures that each card is a unique piece of art. Finally, the hand drawn and inked face cards (and jokers) complete the deck’s authentic old world feel.
for a closer look at all of the face cards.
Delving further into the FACTIONS world, each card suit has been modified to correspond with each Faction.

All 56 playing cards are enclosed in a beautifully designed deck box that present each card as a page from an ancient tome.(An excerpt of the letter written by Dortuk, Caretaker Primus to Chief Recorder Valdek.)
FACTIONS is more than just another custom playing card deck. It embodies what Valdek, Chief Recorder of the Caretakers has seen on his journey. Each face card has a backstory of what he encountered. With every card, the story unfolds...
The artwork and lore for each card are featured in the art book.
