I received my factory set last week, this morning was the first opportunity I had to examine it in any detail.

The cards were packaged in a padded envelope which inside was a nice shiny almost blood envelope and containing 27 cards as the base set,3 promo cards two of which were marked P1, the third promo being marked P2, a canvas puzzle card marked A4 (the main picture is base card 6), two pieces of art one by Wu Wei as signed on the back and the other I think is by J(ay) but it appears to be unsigned, a canvas card fixed to card 14 of the base set but a different picture, I presume it is a print of Al Davison "Renfield" Art, and my package also contained a early order Bonus magno-card.

scans will be posted later.

John

Alright, looks like it was mail day for Bram Stoker's Dracula! Big Grin

Unfortunately, my scanner decided to go on the fritz the other day, so I can't scan in my sketch cards right now, but I should have that problem resolved in the next day or so. Until then, here are the contents of my two sets:

First, I received (packaged separately from the main sets) all of the afore-mentioned promos, including the early-order magno cards.

The main sets came beautifully packaged in blood red foil envelopes (isn't that appropriate?)
Inside of each envelope I found the 27 card base set. The original art on some of these cards is just gorgeous and I am going to have an enjoyable time looking through them and reading the backs of the cards.

Packaged in with the first set, I found:
-Two canvas puzzle cards, B2 and B3, by Barry Lincks (I will need to find B1 as it is a 3-part puzzle. Smile)
-A really nice sketch of Vampire Lucy by James Riot and,
-an awesome blood-red sketch of Dracula's coach by Marcia Dye! Clap

Then, in the second packet I found:
-A canvas puzzle piece, A1, by I assume, Gordon Napier, as it is part of the image of base card #6.
-Chase card C2, a cool-looking Nosferatu-like image by Juan Puis.
-A REALLY cool sketch of a doomed shipmate on the Demeter, drawn by Matt ? (looks like an S or a Z)
-And finally, an Artifact Chase card, AC1, sand from Whitby Beach, the location that Stoker used for the setting of the Demeter's shipwreck! Dance

This is an AWESOME set. Being a classic horror fan, this was right up my alley. I am going to enjoy searching for the remaining puzzle pieces and adding to the collection of sketch cards. I'm not a huge buyer like many of you are but, of everything I've opened so far, hands down, this was/is my favorite set of the year! Kudos, Jason! Metal

Got two packs at the NEC and Jason very kindly opened a case,gave me pick of the packs and then threw in the case card as well!

Each pack had the 27 card base set and I also found canvas cards A1,A3,and B2 as well as chase card C2 and the folowing sketches.



No idea who the first card is by but the second is Robert Aragon.



Robert Hack and Gavin Hunt.The Hunt sketch has some lovely detail picked out in silver ink and I originally thought the Hack was a base card! For once I picked well with my packs Smile .
