On Kickstarter, LORE Scandinavian Folklore Playing Cards


The team Native Tongue Studio has long been fascinated by the unique history and traditions of the many different cultures around the globe. One such tradition is that of folklore and stories passed down through the generations. In terms of folklore, one region stands out in particular, Scandinavia.


LORE is Native Tongue Studio's personal take on some of the characters commonly found throughout Scandinavian Folklore. According to designer Brad Gabbard,
While the tales can vary between regions, many of the characters themselves share
similar descriptions across the land. Many of the stories can also get quite dark. That’s what drew us in...

Currently funding on Kickstarter, the fully custom deck emphasizes the contrast between some of the more innocent-looking aspects of Scandinavian folklore and the dark undertones lying beneath the surface.


Each court card features a traditional folklore character shown in its most sinister form. From Mara, Troll to the Elf, Dwarf, and Pesta. 

The deck is packaged in beautifully foiled and embossed tuck boxes by Fresh Impression Letterpress on unique Oxford fabric textured stock. But once inside, the dark and creepy undertones come to light. Bard continued,
As seen in our Tough Luck collab with Doc’s, we tend to make decks with loads of personality. We tend to make decks with loads of personality. We enjoy when not all is what it seems on the surface.

Four editions are available on Kickstarter- Midsummer Blue Edition, Midwinter Red Edition, Vaesen Foil Editon, and Vaesen Gilded Edition. The Kickstarter exclusive Vaesen editions come with unique Rose Gold fully foil card backs.

Printed by Cartamundi, B9 True Linen Finish on Slimline Stock. Pledge starts at $16 on Kickstarter.
