The first deck was made in a couple of weeks at low res, so not a lot of effort went into it (either with the research or the actual construction), hence it was a bit ambiguous and not nearly as "collaged' as the new deck.
The first deck was just, well, to be honest, the first picture I came up with for each card that "felt" right to me, with some basic additional elements added but that was about it. It certainly wasn't terribly scholarly, Considering the level of detailed questions I already get about "why did you put this there?" I'm glad that I did a pretty thorough job of researching & constructing the published version
Do you still have the confirmation e-mail they sent you when you pre-ordered? I am going to hold them to my pre-order, and pre-order price, once they "realize" that the deck will be released.Kraai said:But... Amazon cancelled my pre-order 3 days ago. I'm not a happy camper.
Khatruman said:My suspicion is that they offered a pre-order price which wouldn't give them a profit once they found out what the deck would be listing for. They, of course, couldn't tell people who pre-ordered that they would now have to pay a higher price, so they conveniently got that information that it wouldn't be released (interesting that it happened just before release).
If you look on Amazon's site, the deck is still listed, but now for $25.
