The deck dedicated to ancient characters from the famous novel Water Margin – a 14th century novel – one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. The novel written in vernacular Chinese in times of the Song Dynasty. It is attributed to Shi Nai’an.  Water Margin tells the story of how a group of 108 outlaws gathers at Mount Liang to form a sizable army before they are eventually granted amnesty by the government and sent on campaigns to resist foreign invaders and suppress rebel forces.
