I can't think of any better way to start off this board game blog than with a preview of the primary card back that will be used with most of the cards. Different words may appear at the top or the color may change to denote different card-types but this is the generic backing for all cards.
The font is Lucida Blackletter with the footer font being Herculanum. The map I found on Google Images around three years ago and no longer remember who made it or what year it was made. When I find that info, I'll make a blog about it because I remember it being quite interesting.
