About this project
Table Titans began three years ago as an online comic created by Scott Kurtz to celebrate his love of Dungeons & Dragons. Quickly growing from one creator posting twice a week to three creators posting daily, Table Titans has become one of the web's biggest gaming comics. Illustrated by Scott Kurtz, Brian Hurtt, Steve Hamaker and a host of the comic industry's best known creators, Table Titans chronicles the adventures of Val Bronzebottom and her friends Darius, Alan, Andrew, Darby, and their DM Brendan as they embark on adventures at and away from the gaming table.
WHAT IF I MISSED OUT ON VOL 1 OF TABLE TITANS?
No problem! Our first Kickstarter was a huge success and we've picked up a lot of new fans since then, so with this Kickstarter we're offering both Table Titans Volume 1: First Encounters and Table Titans Volume 2: Winter of the Iron Dwarf as beautifully oversized KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE hardcover books!
Though our reward tiers with Table Titans Volume 1: First Encounters are VERY LIMITED there's no need to worry; we will always keep the whole comic series FREE TO READ ONLINE AT TABLETITANS.COM!
WHAT IF I'VE NEVER PLAYED D&D?
No problem! If you like high adventure, swords and sorcery, action, drama, comics, laughing and a whole lot of fun, then Table Titans is for you. It DOESN'T MATTER if you've played D&D. No... seriously, it doesn't matter, but don't be surprised if this comic makes you want to try it out. Whether you're a hardened RPG vet, a casual reader with a slight interest in D&D, or if you just love comics, Table Titans, like any roleplaying game, is about telling good stories.
BUT I'M NOT IN THE UNITED STATES AND SHIPPING & CUSTOMS FEES ARE OUTRAGEOUS!
Fortunately for you, we've arranged for rewards to ship from various locations around the globe and we're covering the costs of any additional customs fees. Look for the ★ INTL SHIP version of your reward tier for the best rates!
SOUNDS GOOD, NOW TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE LOOT!
Ah yes, the sweet lootz. Well, first and foremost there are the books. These are oversized, full-color, hardcover tomes featuring KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE cover treatments. You can only get the Kickstarter editions by being a Backer!
WHAT IF I WANT A LITTLE MORE WITH MY BOOK?
You're in luck. Thanks to our fantastic Backers unlocking Stretch Goals galore you can get some fancy Print Sets, Sticker Sheets, and a Moleskine-Style Table Titans Adventure Journal perfect for all your gaming needs!
YEAH, YEAH, BOOKS ARE GREAT. WHAT ELSE YOU GOT?
Oh, you're in it for the good stuff, huh? SO BE IT! How about Kickstarter Exclusive Print Sets, Sticker Sheets, as well as polyhedral of a variety of shapes and sizes, dreaded Mimics disguised as chest-shaped dice bags to protect your plastic gaming bits, and Pinny Arcade Collectors Pins declaring your allegiance to the Table of Titans!
MORE, GIVE ME MORE!
Why you greedy little... alright, you've asked for it. We've teamed with the Gnomish tinkerers at Elderwood Academy to bring you a Table Titans Scroll & Codex for your ultimate die-rolling needs!
YASS! THAT'S IT, I'M READY FOR ADVENTURE!
Then have a look at the Reward Table below. Together we're going to make an amazing book and some fantastic pieces of art. Chose your Rewards wisely and remember, "Titans never say die!"
GIVE ME ADD-ONS, GIVE ME CHOICE! YOUR LOOT COMBOS DO NOT PLEASE ME!
Alright, alright, it's fair to say that you probably know what you want better than we do. Which is why any items from this Kickstarter, as well as some items from our last Kickstarter, are also available a la carte (that's French)!
Simply pick the reward tier you'd like, then add the amount listed in the chart below for any items you'd like to "add-on" to your pledge. Once the campaign is over, we'll use powerful BackerKit Wyzards and their magical Surveys to ask you which add-on items you wanted, and voila (more French) you'll get exactly the combination of rewards you desire!
Risks and challenges
There are always risks when publishing books and manufacturing products. Trust us, after almost nine months of delays in our last Kickstarter we've now got experience with most of them. Everything from paper and fabric shortages to coastal pirates... yes, pirates.
But we've got no fear this time around (except from pirates) because for this Kickstarter we've already finished all the book prep, locked down our printers, and are ready to send our prototypes to their manufacturers.
We've also teamed with one of the biggest and best crowdfunding companies in the industry: BackerKit.
Through BackerKit we'll easily be able to manage add-ons, surveys, address changes, and fulfillment.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
In a way... it's both!
Table Titans is on continuous story that chronicles the adventures of Val, Alan, Darius, Andrew, & Darby (the Table Titans themselves) as they embark on adventures both at and away from the gaming table.
Since the Titans are playing Dungeons & Dragons we get to to see their characters in a series of Adventures, each different in its own way, that combine together into a longer Campaign. Every Volume of Table Titans centers around one of these Adventures, making it easy for a reader to jump in at any time, but together the books make a running storyline that longterm readers love.
And remember, you can read every volume online, for free, at TableTitans.com
Table Titans V2 will be between 96-104 pages, depending on how many stretch goals we hit ;)
The Standard Edition will be a paper-over-board style of hardcover. It's probably what you imagine of when you think of a "hardcover" book. We'll add some nice spot-gloss treatment to the tome and it'll make for a fantastic looking book!
The Deluxe Edition Hardcover will take everything to the next level. It'll be the kind of thing you'd expect to see in a fine art-book: feature a foil-stamped deboss on the cover, probably in faux leather, and encased in a embossed and spot-glossed dust jacket. This book will be a textural and visual treat for the eyes, an excellent addition to any collectors bookshelf!
Our first stretch goal (which our fabulous Backers reached in just a day) was to bring on famed comic book designer Keith Wood. He worked on the first volume of Table Titans and we're sure he's going to do a bang-up job on the second. Once he's got his designs locked in we'll share 3D renderings of them on the Kickstarter page :)
YES! Every Backer from every tier will receive a DRM free PDF copy of the Adventure Module :)
