I got these because I'd rather just pre-pull the cards for a scenario as a quick reference than put a bookmark in my Keeper Rulebook. Most of the illustrations are sepia and come from Malleus Monstrorum or other published scenarios from Chaosium. They're oversized cards: 3-1/2" x 5-3/4" with rounded corners, much larger than the previous Keeper Decks. Glossy finish, Tarot Card/Playing Card quality. It comes with 65 creature cards, 3 completely blank cards, 3 blank cards with stat fields for your own creatures, and quick reference card of useful info.
I have the decks that came with the 7th edition set and this one compares very favorably to them. They are a high quality product, the artwork is great and the text is really useful. Having these saves flipping through books to find stats which definitely makes them worth having!
