That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die.
Thank you for taking the time to view my kickstarter project and a Happy New Year. I'm K.James Carters and I have produced the RPG gamebook "Necronomicon". This is a horror themed sandbox, storytelling game steeped in demonology and the occult. It can be played extensively for missions, experience and quests...or as a Halloween/horror themed party as a one off. It is a frightening game that requires team work, cunning, strategy and a great deal of imagination. This isn't just a Cthulhu mythos game but links the horrors of Lovecraft to medieval deadly sins and modern horror. It creates a horror tailored to the player's deepest fears.
Firstly, the good news... I'm not looking for funding to write this book or to turn an idea into a product -it's already been designed, tested and is ready to go.
However, this is where I need your help.
In order to turn my product into something truly remarkable AND to build up a community, I'm looking for help to take this idea to the next level. Your response will tell me if there is a market for such a game or if I should devote my time to other projects.
The money being sought will pay for a professionally produced cover and summoning board (not to mention a number of interior sketches) for the finished product. Any money raised in excess will be used to help promote the game ahead of a Halloween launch. I'm looking to produce a supporting website and to generate some serious publicity in the build up to Halloween.
This is a realistic amount being sought for a project of this size but I'm really looking for YOU over the cash. By making it OUR project and by finding players and supporters now, I am certain the game will grow and prosper.
Not only do you have a chance to support this project but you can gain some impressive rewards too. Everyone who contributes is listed in the gamebook as a contributor -that will remain there for all eternity. The rewards increase to signed gamebooks, original artwork and designing your own daemon!
If you enjoy horror, storytelling or sandbox games, the occult or the works of Lovecraft -this might be the project for you to support. If you are looking for a challenging RPG that is darker and scarier than others you may have tried or just a great idea for a Halloween party -then this is the project for you too.
Thank you for considering my project and it is only through your support I can reach my target and produce a product fitting the idea. I will be giving regular updates and showing the work taking shape exclusively on Kickstarter.
Risks and challenges
This is my first kickstarter project and so I can understand the reservations you may be having.
Risks are minimal. My artist is highly sought and has already produced a number of sketches and concept designs. I have set a deadline for September to complete the project so we can promote for Halloween. This is a generous deadline and I expect the item to be ready long before this. There is zero chance of the project over running.
I have overseen the publishing process on two previous works and so I'm aware of the pitfalls and the delays that can occur. Again, I've only approached kickstarter when most of these problems have been resolved.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
