 WE REACHED OUR GOAL TO PRINT ISSUE #1

 NOW IT'S TIME TO HELP US UNLOCK THESE STRETCH GOALS FOR OUR BACKERS!

A few of our friends have joined us to give a few nice goals for you! Check them out below.

UNLOCKED!

Our friend Eric M Boyd has an incredible shop http://emboyd.storenvy.com/ where he sells stickers, magnets and small prints. He has teamed up with us, and if we reach the stretch goal of 2400, EVERY backer who is getting a book in the mail, will also get several DoE character stickers! (characters include Nyx, Cerros, Silverglove, EEL and Owlock) No need to add backing funds for this!

It's simple, if we reach this goal YOU GET MORE for free! As a nod and thank you, when this kickstarter is done, we will be sending an email code for a 30% off discount to use in his store for any of his items! Thanks Eric for the support!

UNLOCKED!!

For our second stretch goal we are very excited to have Axel Gimenez doing an 8x10 pin up of The Goddess Natura and her protector BaeNa. Axel is known for his work on Masters of the Universe, doing freelance art for Mattel, along with working for Dark Horse and DC. Axel was the first person who Matthew ever commissioned to do work on a DoE character (Tech Trek) many years ago.

If we reach this stretch goal, all backers will be able to add only 5 DOLLARS to their pledge level and this limited print will be added to their backer package! 5 dollars for a sketch print done by Axel of BaeNa and Natura? Don't mind if I do!

LOCKED

Our third stretch goal is for every backer. A sneak peek. You all will get a PDF emailed to you of the beginning of Issue #2! That's right. While everyone at conventions are purchasing the second run of issue #1, you will be at home, on your computer behind the scenes with us, reading issue #2. It's the least we can do. Thank you for backing us!

Just a few dreamers who met one day. It has been a blast having CJ and Andrew on staff to create such a wonderful world. Colorful and creative. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Risks and challenges

Challenges are just obstacles that take a little bit more effort to work through. It could be the amount of time edits take, to figuring out the best way to offer shipping for our reward levels. We have taken the time to navigate all issues that we could have, and are very excited to get our product to you!
