I was born in China and I LOVE collecting playing cards and my dream is one day to have my own deck.

From my 200 and so deck collection, Chinese themed deck is extremely rare. So, I wish to incorporate some Chinese elements into the playing card.

Also, deck collecting is never heard of in China, so with this project I wish to change the view of deck collecting.

I want a deck that looks simple, but full of details and stories. This deck satisfies my requirements

In ancient Chinese fable a Dragon had supreme power. He also had 9 decedent who helped him rule the world.

However, the Dragon disappeared one day, leaving with 12 powerful creatures who claim that they are the Dragon’s decedent. Nobody knows which 9 of them are truly the sky descender. Here are the 12 legendary creatures:

♧J: Gongfu (蚣蝮), who has a head of dragon and tail of fish, and rules weather and rain.
