Blood and Beast Playing Cards is a deck of movie-inspired cards from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
This awesome deck features four main fantasy characters -- Elves, Dwarfs, Humans, and Monsters. Although the characters are highly fictional, many of the symbolic patterns are based on the real ancient civilization. You may spot some along the way.
Blood and Beast Playing Cards is a limited edition unique piece -- ONCE SOLD, IT'S GONE. You'll marvel at its originality and creativity, in addition to its one-of-a-kind quality features:
The unique tuck boxes of Blood and Beast are manufactured with hot stamped gold and silver foil and deep, embossed artwork on all sides that wraps around the tuck box.
Dark Dragon Entity wraps around the tuck in embossed silver foil, inspired by the mosaic-kind-of-art style. The ancient encryption stamped below the Blood and Beast are Elder Furthark runes, which translate to "Silver Edition."
Light Dragon Entity wraps around the tuck in embossed gold foil. The golden dragon represents light -- the better side of the dark dragon, which symbolizes the balance of power. The runes encryption is written in Elder Furthark, which translate to "Gold Edition."
Embossed, metal-foiled side panels. One side of the panel is embossed with the name, Blood and Beast, making you a proud owner of the deck. The other panel has a wrap of a dragon facade.
The court cards feature classic heroes from the four fantasy characters -- the Elves, Dwarfs, Humans and Monster heroes. Illustrations are hand-drawn by our passionate artist. All characters are named and represented differently from the actual movie to prevent copyright issues. All cards have written Elder Furthark runes on both sides, translated based on its own faction.
The backs of Gold edition (Light Dragon) and Silver edition (Dark Dragon) feature artwork inspired from ancient patterns and encryptions of mixed cultures from Chinese to Greek and Aztec a-like designs, both set in a mirrored composition. The patterns are filmed with silver-pigmented ink and gold-pigmented ink. These card backs look striking with metallic inks!
