*(Deleted my original review after reading another that helped partially resolve a major issue I'd had on my order! Thank you to Van W.!)*
**Card quality:** Very good. Sturdy.
**Art quality:** Exceedingly good. Exceeds expectations. Evokes the Rider-Waite Tarot aesthetic while still putting a Mage spin on things.
**Tuck box: **Good. A teeny bit flimsy, but it's still quite lovely.
The product page says it comes with instructions though, which I thought meant I'd get an actual physical instructional book to help me with my readings and storytelling for chronicles.

I find this game well worth the money. I would recommend getting a physical product as the cards are very well made. That being said, printing your own cards allows you to take them anywhere without worrying about them being damaged or lost. I have used this set to play at work and camping.
I would not recommend this for a primary rpg system and that is not what this system attempts to do, but I would recommend for a oneshot or something for a night of "beer and pretzels" fun in between your more serious games.
It requires very little prep and the way the cards work allows for a lot of improv. When all is said and done, it can help you tell a great story.
My one complaint is that it doesn't seem to have a website or anything any more.
In summary, worth it for a secondary, fun, and easy to set up game....
