WHAT IS THE REALMS DECK?

The REALMS DECK is an extended deck of playing cards which can be used to play a number of games which require more than the standard 52 card deck.  Use it to discover a new twist on classic games or just have fun inventing your own!

The Wildlands is a full bonus suit for the REALMS DECK.  It includes the original 17 ranks [Fool, Ace, 0-10, Jack, Queen, King, ?(wild)] plus three new wild ranks consisting of an X card, Skull card, and Infinity.  The Wildlands set also adds these 3 bonus ranks to each of the 16 original suits.  

NOTE: This set does not contain a standard 52 card deck.  This is the bonus suit and additional ranks for the four main decks.

Sample Cards: Wild Suit- Jack, Queen, King, ?Sample Cards: Wild Suit- X, Skull, Infinity, + Cardback

The full REALMS DECK includes 16 unique suits inspired by historical playing card suits.  Yes, most of these new suits are actually old and have appeared in decks throughout the world.  The cards are designed to be paired across all four sets.  Not only is each card identified by rank and suit but now also have a third icon; the compass.  This new icon identifies the realm and alignment of that suit.  The pairing for the REALMS DECK includes: 2 Alignments (Light/Dark), 4 Directions (North, East, South, West), 8 Colors (Red, Grey, Blue, Orange, Green, Cyan, Yellow, Purple), and 16 Suits (The Fool/Joker, Ace, Ranks 0-10, Jack, Queen, King, and an additional (?) rank.)

“I love extended decks but one thing that often bothered me in several designs is that the pairing functionality breaks down once you begin to add more suits and colors.  Games such as solitaire are simple because of the alternating colors.  But what happens if the suits aren’t paired by color?  How do you incorporate pairing with a fifth, sixth, seventh suit?  The Realms Deck is my attempt to extend the classic poker deck while maintaining the matching card functionality of rummy type games.”

Format
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.
