Castle Falkenstein: Fortune Card Deck

with deckbox
Embossed US Poker Card(s)

Based on playing cards sent to our world from across the Faerie Veil, this Fortune Deck will help Host and Players alike better immerse themselves in the world of Castle Falkenstein. Each suit is based on one of four pivotal and important nations from the world of New Europa: Bayern (hearts), the United Kingdom (diamonds), France (spades), and Prussia (clubs). The face cards feature luminaries and powerhouses of the period, including Jules Verne, King Ludwig II, Otto von Bismark, Queen Victoria, and Tom Olam, the Man from Beyond the Faerie Veil.

In addition to the normal 54 cards (13 cards in each suit plus 2 Jokers), this deck includes Ability Cards sorted by Rank to help better play and track Feats in the Great Game and designated Duel Cards to make any honorable contest between two duelists more colorful and exciting.

The official Castle Falkenstein Fortune Deck makes the perfect companion for any trip to New Europa.

A print-and-play set would also be fabulous for those of us who largely play the Great Game via etheric kinescope and Ouija teletype.

We'll think on the possibility after GenCon, when things slow down a bit. Thank you.

Is there a print and play option for those of us living in countries where the shipping costs more than the deck itself?

We will discuss the possibility after Gen Con, once life slows down. Thank you.

Product Information
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
