While visiting the New Babbage Ning, a notice was placed by Mr. Blackberry Harvey (a tip-of-the-hat, sir!) regarding a very unique piece of art being designed by one of his RL associates, a Mr. Winneganfake. The gentleman in question is a artist whose current work lies towards the games of chance, or in this case, designing a very unique set of card – ideal for those of a Steampunk bent.

Currently, Mr. Winneganfake is designing a new card daily, beginning in January of 2010, which approximates a completion date in March. A more unique set of items would be hard to locate, so if one wishes to test lady-luck in a Steampunk-eque manner, pay a visit to his Deviant Art site to see a collection of complete playing cards, at: http://winneganfake.deviantart.com/gallery/#The-Windrow-Ravenswood-Deck

If you happen to take a fancy to the work, an option to pre-order a set, along with hand-sewn bag for their care and storage. More information on the pre-orders are available at: http://www.tormentedartifacts.com/deck.html
