Hrm... something went wrong.

Thank you all for your support to date!  We've made the goal (assuming there aren't a number of large de-pledges.) Since we're so close to the end of pledging, I can't really put forward any stretch goals. I'm sorry it seems anticlimatic.  But from... (Read More)

Almost 75%, 35 Hours to go; An Idea to Make Our Goal & More Samples

April 20th - via:
We're getting closer, but still have about $1000 to go... However, I did think of one way to hit our goal: If you're currently backing for just the PDFs (and the option to get them printed at cost) but you do plan to get them printed at cost, please... (Read More)

We're in the Home Stretch but Need Some Help; Plus Creature Card Previews

April 16th - via:
We've got a little over two days left!  While we certainly can make our goal (the last two Kickstarters I ran doubled their funding in the last couple of days) we can't count on it. So if you've got a promotion idea, please send me a message or post... (Read More)

Some Proofs Sent, More Adventure Card Previews

April 16th - via:
Hi Everyone! We've got a couple of pieces of news to pass along... and may have another tidbit soon. (I'm waiting to hear back on something.)  The NPCs deck went to the printer to have a proof done!  If it looks good, the PDF (and print-it-at-cost... (Read More)

Past Half-Way; More Creature Samples

April 12th - via:
Hi Folks! We passed the half-way mark a couple of days ago! We've got a little over a week to go at the moment.  It would be great to be already funded, but my experiences on Kickstarter tell me that many pledges (in some cases half) come in the... (Read More)

A Couple of New Works of Monster Art

April 9th - via:
We're almost half way to our goal... and we're one day beyond half way through our pledging period.  Of course, it would be great if we were funded, but that's how Kickstarter goes at times.  It seems that about 1/3 of the pledging happens in the... (Read More)

Time for More Card Previews: More Adventure Cards

April 4th - via:
Keeping up with our preview schedule... below are three cards from our Deck of Adventures.  I'm likely going to change the title font so it stands out more (at the moment it duplicates the section heading font) and probably label and/or add a note... (Read More)

Three More Creature Previews

April 2nd - via:
The project is doing well, but in a different way than I've seen before.  Instead of having big spikes and occasional days with no pledges (or even a couple days where no one joins but a few back out) we're consistently making about the same... (Read More)

Another 3-card Preview: More NPCs

March 30th - via:
It seems I've got a bit of a schedule showing card preview in updates.  Unless there's other news or some good reason I should be able to post an update every other day that previews 3 cards.  (And still have a bunch of cards held back.)  These... (Read More)

More Adventure Card Samples

March 28th - via:
A few days ago we posted three NPC card samples.  A day or two later we posted three creature card samples. So today we're posting three adventure cards samples.  As mentioned before, these still need two editing passes, but you should be able to... (Read More)

Creature Decks Samples & New Pledge Level

March 25th - via:
Hi Everyone, I have a couple of bits of project news to share. First, I've decided to add a new pledge level for those who do want to get the decks delivered without having to pay outside of the Kickstarter.  It also helps to control the shipping... (Read More)

More Previews and Project Details

March 23rd - via:
Hi All, Thanks for your interest in the project (and for those of you who backed, your pledges.) If you were in on the prior card decks Kickstarter, you know it took a while to finish, but we were doing 27 decks of cards.  This project is 3.  And... (Read More)
