The Loaded Deck
“Democracy can only succeed if the populace is intelligent enough to govern themselves. And the populace is not intelligent enough.” – Founding principle of the Loaded Deck
The Loaded Deck is an organization of individuals in the central country dedicated to shaping the development of society. The group is divided into four suits: Blades, Bows, Books, and Blood. The leadership of the group is comprised of the face cards of each suit, plus the joker. In terms of face cards, the suits represent more a way of thinking than actual combat style or capabilities. This is not the case with the lower ranks of the Deck, however, and is chiefly based on what one’s capabilities are.
There are one of each face card, and typically thirty or so numbered cards in total per suit, so group membership hovers around one-hundred-fifty.
