CULT : Fire

CULT : Fire

CULT : Fire is Season 1, Chapter 4's exclusive deck from Jocu's Inner Circle.

CULT is an exclusive series that launched Jocu's Inner Circle Subscription and it explores a post-apocalyptical world where the elements themselves are worshipped and mythological characters from our own time have ascended and twisted into deities.

This specific deck is a limited run of 1000, the first 200 of which have a unique seal and ribbon variant. My deck number is 74 and comes with a red ribbon and orange seal. The others, from what I can tell, have a yellow ribbon and red seal. The back design is scorching red and so very detailed. The fronts are completely custom, designed to fit the theme perfectly.

The theme of the deck, as eloquently told by Jocu:

The earth is dying. Scorching-hot fires rage through forests and jungles aided by winds strong rough to tear down buildings and uproot trees. In the northern hemisphere, waters have risen to engulf entire cities and coastlines as previously unthinkable floods and weather phenomena have increased in prevalence. In the south, the earth itself cracks and opens without warning, volcanic eruptions plague areas that were previously thought impermeable to such events.

In the hot, humid carnage the human race survives in pockets, small communities fending for themselves.

However in this chaos has been born a doctrine. Fear of the elements has turned, for many, to respect and even love. A new religion has been born, and its followers take solace in the inevitability of their destruction. Comforted by the words of the old gods, they embrace the elements themselves as their path to salvation, spurred on by fearsome and powerful leaders who preach their One True Path to reaching the afterlife.

The Cults have been born.

Choose wisely.

The deck consists of 56 cards:

  • 52 playing cards
  • Two non-identical jokers
  • Two ad cards
