About

This Kickstarter is here solely to provide it's backers with an older style of writing that is near nostalgic to me, While also expanding this book with the ideas of those interested in it. At the moment of this Kickstarter's launch, The Artifice Archipelago is around 60% done, with it looking to be completed in Late Q3 of this year.

The low price for the book is there as an incentive to jump in on this Kickstarter before the book is placed on the kindle store (for $5, up from the $3 pricing of this Kickstarter)

All rewards past the $3 level allow the backer to contribute to the book in form of a page(s) of content, via submissions full of your writing.

STRETCH GOALS:

$75: A new aquatic story arc UNLOCKED

$100: A new treasure temple story arc

$125: New items added to the story

$150: A store added to the story

$175: A new back alley story arc

*More to Come*

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Being a board gamer, I have attempted to bring back the "Self chosen adventure" style writing on a much larger scale, with a more dynamic twist. In the Artifice Archipelago there is a true ending to achieve, and doing so may take the reader hours! With constant decisions, losses, and backtracking; memorization of one's decisions is crucial as they try and reach the end, and maybe, just maybe a sequel is in order after this.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*I do want to point out however, that The Artifice Archipelago is not illustrated, while it would be an amazing addition, I want to keep the words in the book up to the viewers imagination and not have the story stay "scripted" in ones mind.

**The Artifice Archipelago is for ages 10 and up due to moderate violence (No language or sexuality).

***For the sake of spoilers, information on the book's theme will be limited, with the name being one of the biggest clues avaliable

Artifice: clever or cunning devices or expedients, especially as used to trick or deceive others.

Archipelago: a group of islands.

Risks and challenges

In wanting to expand the book, comes potential delays. While the completion of the book is fairly close, having you, the backers provide pages into this book allows for a potential doubling of the books content. With each backer's addition to this book, comes extra time put into arrangement and design.
