Odyssey Language card question.. (Taiwan cards ?)

Post by MAGICSALEMAN » Tue Jul 07, 2015 2:20 pm

Hi Guys,

I have doubt about the language of some cards in my hand (Odyssey ones).t
They seems to be Chinese but I have the impression that they are a Mix of Korean and Chinese signs (Taiwain cards perhaps - Mandarin ?).

Those cards are not chinese due to their Pics (Forbidden) and some signs that I don't recoignized...

Here's the pics :

Thx for your confirm !

Hi Eric

Traditional Chinese is only Taïwan, and all the 4 are T-Chinese. Odyssey doesn't exist in Korean.

Hi Alexis,

Thx for your confirm but how is it possible so that those cards are not Altered (Political restriction ; skull, bones etc ....) ?
Because Tawain and not China itself ?...

So for the Taiwain market ...

Only S-Chinese cards from mainland China have alternate art. T-Chinese, which is distributed to Chinese speaking areas outside mainland China, do not have alternate art, because places outside of China are not subject to those Chinese laws.

Hi Tim

This in indeed correct at the exception of 5 cards, that were printed with Alternate Art in Japanese and Traditional Chinese, I still don't know precisely why this took place:

Yep Thx Tim !

I know.... so that's why thoses specific china's Traditonnl language cards doesn't own alternate Art due to their distribution on market outside of China.
For this section Alexis, they cards can be putted all together in a Alternate Asian Pic section.
Coffin Puppets Jap as well in Nota ... :-s

I don't have check the new editions, there's perhaps as well unkown chinese alternate pics... since...Eventide it since in your data base.
