I think the court cards should have a more intricate design, its too plain. The designs of the backs and the aces are so much more complicated.
 
Well, there is simply two sides to my feeling when I see these. now let me share with you what they are.

1: The cards have been made simple, yet still they hold there elegance. And the simplicity is something rarely seen on face cards, so it is original and new. i like the way they look.

2: I feel that all that D&D really did was simplify them an make the backs and ace a bit more spiffy. so I don't think the deck should have taken so long to create. Especially with these simple face cards.

That is just my thoughts though. Anyone else share my veiws?

hmmm.. yeh, i don't like the court cards, they're just too simple. you see, if they were standard court cards, then they're simple, but because they've taken away from what the standard is, it becomes oversimplified.

that's why i like the centurions' court cards, they've kept the same design but simplified it by subtracting colour.

i reckon because of the hype as well, they'll be ridiculously overpriced.

I'm not sure if I like them or not.

Part of me loves the simplicity and elegance of them, but the other part of me (the psychotic madman part) says they're way too boring and should match the backs and the ace of spades with the intricate designs and whathaveyou.
