The Decktet is a set of 36 cards similar to the Tarot cards, with suits, ranks, and a unique significance for each card. Designed by P.D. Magnus, They can be used for card games or for fortune telling. The first artwork for the set uses anthropomorphic animals, but there's nothing inherently heretical about the cards or their meanings. The card names and symbolism have the context of Renascence Europe, much like Tarot.
Each card has a name, a rank, and 1, 2 or 3 suits. One card is the exception: "The Excuse," which has no suits nor rank and is similar to the Tarot card "The Fool" as it is the only tarot card with a rank of '0'.
The suits are: Moons, Suns, Waves, Leaves, Wyrms, and Knots. The suits on a card are usually ranked in that order for the sake of uniformity (ie: "Moon/Sun" instead of "Sun/Moon") but the suits do not not have any inherent priority.
The Standard Deck has 36 cards. Most have two suits; the Aces and Crowns each have only one suit.
The "Extended Deck" adds nine more cards, inserted in the ranks as Nine - Pawn - Court - Crown. They each have three suits, except for "The Excuse," which has no suit nor rank. Depending on the game's rules, it could be a valuable wild card, or a worthless null card.
