About

INTERNATIONAL Backers: The MINION (patches only), MINI BOSS, and BOSS tiers all now ship to anywhere in the world! (additional details in ADD-ONS section)

-Shipping has already been factored into the donation tiers and add-ons

The Adventurous Grimoire is an endless open-world game in a book (316 pages) using only a character-sheet-bookmark and a pencil; there are no dice required. The game includes rules for both single player and unlimited multiplayer (multiplayer is limited only by the number of books/players in a group), and it also includes a scale character sheet template so you can make your own character sheets.

For a demonstration of how to play, see the campaign video

There are no stretch goals for this campaign...yet.

NEW STRETCH GOAL! (posted 10/25/15):

$17,000: The Central Archive, an exclusive merchandise club for wolffgames.com

-If this stretch goal is reached I will launch an invite-only membership club on wolffgames.com at the time rewards are sent out. This club will be called the Central Archive and all backers will be granted membership. The Central Archive will grant its members access to exclusive swag, all designed by me, including The Adventurous Grimoire book symbol patches (and also later probably another type of item for this game, not patches). As I make new games there will be new items that are only released to the Central Archive, and again the Central Archive will be the only place to get them. There will be no membership fees for this club, most if not all of the merchandise will ship to anywhere in the world, and membership will be for life. In addition to the rewards from this campaign backers will also receive the awesome Central Archive membership card I designed for them (durable synthetic card, BPA free; preview of the membership card in backer only update regarding this stretch goal). 

-As a mini ‘risks and challenges’ for this stretch goal: I’ve already got the entire system and layout designed for this addition to the website and I’ve also started on the page artwork (and as you can see I’ve designed the membership card); my web development team has also been briefed and is nearly ready to go save for the actual details I will be sending them if this stretch goal is reached (these are friends who are totally awesome and help me for free, though hopefully I can change that last part sometime in the near future!).

Here is the download link for the full game preview, minus the covers and spine (blank pages have also been removed; 311 pages in preview).  I regret there was no easy way to do a print-and-play sample so that's why I'm giving you the full preview of everything in the book.  Enjoy!

Here is a drawn up example of what the covers will look like in the finished copy, the only changes that might occur are the size and placement of the barcode (I apologize for the late addition):

For backers in the United States:

If you would like any additional books, character sheets, and/or patches after pledging to any of the donation tiers please add the corresponding amounts below to your pledge total (shipping fees have already been factored in):   

-include $2.25 for each additional pack of character sheets (12/pack)

-include $25 for each additional game book

-include $6 for each set of 3 patches (one of each symbol)

.

For International backers:

If you pledged to either the MINI BOSS or BOSS tiers, the rewards from the SOLDIER TIER are available to you as an add-on package for $50: 1 game book and 2 packs of character sheets plus 1 additional patch of your choice (this includes the international shipping cost).  Additional sets of patches are still available for $6.

If you pledged to the MINION TIER, the SOLDIER TIER add-on package is not available to you as I can only ship the patches internationally at that price due to their negligible weight.  Additional sets of patches are still available for $6.

Risks and challenges

The game has already been playtested and given its final edits (i.e. it is shelf-ready). The only thing being funded here is the actual printing of the game (with a small percentage going to pay for the promo patches and shipping) so there are no risks to backers and the only challenges I'll face in fulfilling the donation rewards will be the time it takes to proof and print everything (and send it).
-The game has also been copyrighted (along with having an ISBN and a barcode)

I will do everything I can to make sure you end up with the highest quality of product and will hold the printer to those same standards as well; the same applies to the patches. I will also do my best to make sure all rewards are delivered on time should the campaign be successfully funded, and either way I will post regular updates as things progress.

Edit: I have also factored taxes and Kickstarter's fees into the goal for this campaign (if anyone was wondering)

For those of you looking ahead, yes, I’ve already begun work on a sequel…
