The Moirai , also known as the Fates, are white-robed incarnations of destiny. Three sisters who control the mother thread of life of every mortal from birth to death. They direct fate – ensuring the fate assigned to every being by eternal laws takes its course without obstruction.

Take fate into your own hands by backing this beautifully custom designed and illustrated playing card deck.

The tuck case cover depicts the two-headed eagle - symbolic for the powerful empires that shape the world - but still have no control over the fates. The back of the tuck case shows the art that is also the card back - a twisting mass of vines - alive and dead. The case will be printed in black and white with a spot varnish. The die-cut seal sticker has the initials of the three sisters - Nona, Morta, & Decima.

Risks and challenges

I've successfully produced and fulfilled another playing card deck (under a different account). The campaign was named Fanagled (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tunnelbravo/fanangled-card-deck-v-20-uspcc…. I switched accounts because the first one belonged to my last company which was closed in 2014. The biggest challenge – as I learned from the other two campaigns is fulfillment. Getting product out to all the backers in a timely manner - especially the international backers - since their shipments require more time due to the additional paper work. With my past experience I know I can handle it - but it's still a challenge none-the-less.
