Okay, I’ve wanted to write about this for a while now, but I’ve just been too busy. Ready? Name of the Wind Playing Cards. Okay. Hopefully I have your attention. A while back, I fell in love with the work of Shane Tyree when he was doing a kickstarter for a deck of Cthulhu playing cards. I boosted their signal on facebook, they donated to Worldbuilders, and we bought some cards to sell in the Tinker’s Packs. It was the start of a beautiful friendship. Later, I was delighted to find out that Shane had read my books. More than that, he was a big soppy geek for my books. Which was a happy coincidence, as I was a big soppy geek for his art. So we decided to join forces, forming a giant robot that fights crime. In our off time, we thought we’d make a deck of playing cards based on The Name of the Wind.
