The goal of this Kickstarter is to create 65 new fantasy tracks, 10 of which will have corresponding maps made for them. As we unlock stretch goals, we will add to the collection. These tracks can be used with any fantasy setting or system including Dungeons & Dragons, Dungeon World, or Runequest.

Here is a rundown of the rewards being offered. All audio packs other than the Fantasy Environment collection were created during past Kickstarters. 

  •  Fantasy Environment Collection :  95 brand new PMG fantasy environment audio tracks created to convey magic, wonder, and mystery of outdoor locations Plus whatever stretch goals are unlocked.
  •  1st Level Adventurer collection: This is 25 new PMG fantasy tracks taken from the Fantasy Environment Collection for people who are newer to PMG or just want a smaller collection of tracks. This collection does not include maps. 
  •  Maps: All maps will be made using Campaign Cartographer 3+. I've been creating maps with for over 15 years. You can see a sample below. I will be using different styles from the program. These will not be battle maps. 
  •  PMG's Environment Collection: Standard outdoor tracks great for any genre. Mountains, forests, the arctic, jungles, swamps, it's all here! It also includes tracks with rain. The PMG Environment Collection can be added on to your pledge for an additional $45. Check out the tracklist here. 
  •  PMG's Fantasy Collection: Our best selling bundle by far. A massive collection of fantasy locations, tension tracks, and ambient sounds that take your collection to the next level. The PMG Fantasy Collection can be added on to your pledge for an additional $65. Check out the tracklist here. 
  •  PMG's Horror Collection:  Scary locations to put the fear of the gods in your players. This bundle has horror tracks for all time periods. PMG's Horror Collection can be added on to your pledge for an additional $50. Check out the tracklist here

My name is Wes Otis. My wife Michelle and I are Plate Mail Games. I am a professional sound designer with 20 years of post production audio experience working for studios such as Disney and Warner Bros. I am also a gamer with over 30 years in the hobby. I've been nominated for four Golden Reels and an Emmy for my work. Michelle is a composer with a Master of Music degree. She is a gamer as well who has a great understanding of what works best in gaming audio. She has been writing music for Plate Mail Games from the beginning. We have been designing sound for tabletop games for the past five years, creating hundreds of tracks for all genres. Some of the companies we've done audio for include Evil Hat Games, Kobold Press, Monte Cook Games, Riot Games, and Geek and Sundry. 

Here is my sound design reel.

Plate Mail Games, like many small gaming companies, uses Kickstarter to help fund larger projects that otherwise would be impossible for us bankroll ourselves. It also gives us a sense of interest in a product line. This is our 10th Kickstarter, so we know the ins and outs of making sure you get the most for backing our project. 

Where is the money going? Over a third of the money raised goes to taxes, Kickstarter fees, bank fees, and Backerkit. The rest goes to covering the time it takes to make the tracks. If we unlock all the stretch goals, we will have raised enough money to upgrade some of my studio as well. Upgrades include new audio libraries, recording studio time, software, and gear. But, this is only if we do super well and the costs can be covered. As mentioned, this is our 10th Kickstarter, and we have created several hundred tracks over the past six years, so we are good to go. 

Below are past track packs to help you fill out your audio library with awesomeness. Just add the amount of the audio bundle you want to your pledge and it will be added during the survey through Backerkit.
