The cards themselves feature John Blanche artwork and they are printed in a lovely matt-finish on pleasantly heavy card-stock. The 21 cards have no rules printed on them (just an illustration, a number and a name), but they came with a small "rule book" that described each card's in-game effects. They represent the "major arcana" of the Emperor's Tarot deck.
They are really beautiful, atmospheric, "artifacts" in their own right! They will be featuring in our Mancunius Dome games very soon!
