Rites of Spring is a sourcebook for Changeling: The Lost. It expands upon the information included in the Core Rulebook concerning faerie magic.

Summary Edit

From the Onyx Path catalog:

The King of Spring has been enspelled
And wanders in the green.
The Queen of Spring put on her Mask
And walks a path unseen.
The Knight of Spring is dressed in gold
And guards the maiden's dream.
The Knave of Spring, she stole the moon...
Or so it all would seem.
— Pretty Penny, Freelance Soothsayer.
