A few weeks ago, we introduced the Trump Cards of the Space·Time Deck. It’s time for a second delivery: the Suit of Paper.

Paper traditionally symbolizes:

  • knowledge and wisdom;
  • deduction;
  • riches;
  • fragility.

The cards:

  • Ruler
  • Dragon
  • Treasure
  • Soldier
  • Builder
  • Seeker
  • Lover
  • Servant
  • Home
  • Foot (blank, customizable)
  • Teddy bear (blank, customizable)

Note that the blue borders are not part of the cards. They are just there to delimit the safe-to-draw zone. Printed cards should have a little white margin between the part you can see above and the border.
