$3,687

Scott "Scottie" Jones has long been a favorite among the backers of Shroud of the Avatar.  A natural storyteller, he treats us to detailed narrations of scenes he's designed, sings us Elvish songs, and creates poems about the scenes we experience as our stories unfold in New Britannia.

Portalarium, the creators of Shroud of the Avatar, allow us to import portraits created by significant artists, most notably Denis Loubet.  Denis is well known for his work in gaming, cover artwork for the Ultima series, as well as working alongside Scottie creating the earliest concept art for the game that would become Shroud of the Avatar.

Some time ago, a call arose on the official forums to create an in-game portrait of Scottie to show our appreciation.  I am answering that call and creating this Kickstarter project to fund an official portrait.

Scottie has given us permission.  Denis has agreed to work it into his schedule.  Portalarium has agreed to import the resulting portrait into the game as both a standard portrait and a Kickstarter exclusive version.

All we need is the funding.  The price for a top-quality portrait is $2500.  Kickstarter adds fees that can range from 5%-10%.  Hence our goal of $2750.

Please join us in honoring our friend Scottie in this way!

Risks and challenges

Once we are funded, we are at the mercy of Denis Loubet's work schedule. It's difficult to predict how long this kind of portrait can take, but it will happen.
There are no physical goods to ship, so there should be no problem providing digital delivery of all rewards. Community cloaks may become available shortly after the project is funded, and will be mailed to characters specified in a post-funding survey.
Digital download of the portrait will be provided after completion, and in-game delivery of the portrait will be a release or two after completion. We are sorry we can't offer specific dates.
