Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

William Butler Yeats

Hollodvok the Elder describes the Fae as evil creatures with a penchant for murder and sabotage. He addresses their Queen as a mercurial creature named Titania.
Pesternackle the Aged says they are a fair folk prone to good natured mischief. He suggests that they are ruled by the Queen of air and darkness, Mab.
The ancient sage, Ficklewart the Learned, suggests that they are of two courts, one of the summer and the other of the winter and that they may snatch babes from the cradle and replace them with faery children, which he refers to as “Changelings”. I myself know all and none of these things to be true. But most importantly, I know enough to avoid faeries!

- Rindlepundle, the Lettered

The Changeling Artist Collective presents Olde Fae, a twist on the classic card game, Old Maid.  This deck contains over sixty unique, beautifully illustrated cards from over twenty fantasy artists from around the world.

Game play - 
This is a two player card game.  All cards are dealt to both players at the beginning.  Paired cards are immediately laid out on the table as they are matched.  Each turn, you pick a card from your opponent's hand.  The game ends when all the pairs have been made.  The person holding the Changeling card at the end wins.

Risks and challenges

I have found a printer that has a proven track record of producing an above quality product. I feel confident in the recommendations I've received from other artists.
The company producing the enamel pins is one that I've used on three different occasions and also produces a high quality product.

Minor changes may occur to either card mock-ups or pin mock-ups based on manufacturer feedback. I will update changes in the campaign updates.

I have run two successful kickstarters and fulfilled them on time. You can check them out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/212482464/rpg-inspired-enamel-pins…
