On average, Belgians drink 84 litres of beer each year (... ) Most beers are bought or served in bottles, rather than cans, and almost every style of beer has its own particular, uniquely shaped glass or other drinking-vessel.Using the correct glass is considered to improve its flavor. <TRUE>
A role-playing game is a game in which players assume the role of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making or character development. <TRUE>
A coaster, drink coaster, beverage coaster, or beermat is an article used to rest beverages upon. The purpose is to protect the surface of a table or any other surface where the users might place their beverage. <NOT TRUE ENOUGH>
And now like an old good Alchemist let's brew all those elements together. Can you hear the crackling sound of the fire? Can you smell the mystical fragrance of what is boiling in the pot? Of course not, this is all fictional, but... next time while you're playing with your friends and you look at the table, don't you want to see.... this?

So, if you just like the idea, but you don't want to be financially involved in the project, every share will help us a lot. And, who knows, maybe you will jump on board next time. Oh yeah... because this is only the beginning!

When we started developing this project, the only real challenge we could think of was: what about shipping? Being an active backer on different platforms, more than once I found myself thinking I really like this or that project, but those shipping costs... mmm... better not. This being said, our idea is to ask for your support to deliver the rewards to you in the cheapest possible way. I am located in Antwerp and I am travelling a lot all around Europe. So... what if, after the campaign has ended, and we have established who gets what (with corresponding delivery address) you are the one actually deciding how you want your reward shipped?
**A single coaster weights 7 grams and the sizes are 94mm x 94mm x 1,4mm**
Backers from Belgium, France, Netherlands and Spain they could choose for Kiala (https://www.kiala.be) for example.
Germany and UK are considered "neighbour" countries in the Belgian post system (http://www.bpost.be), so they could get better rates... I visit UK a couple of times per year, and Germany is only a couple hours drive from here.
I travel once every 2-3 months to Italy, so if you're living over there you can book your shipment with Poste Italiane or any pick-up service now available in your country.
If you are close by and you want pick it up in person, you're more than welcome. We are located in the real city center.
Pick up at Crisis 2015 in Antwerp, Belgium
Pick up at Spiel 2015 in Essen, Germany (to be confirmed)

Risks and challenges
The artwork is 99.99% complete. What we need are the necessary funds to run a full production of coasters. Once we receive the funds from Kickstarter we can book the printing process (3 weeks). Shipping will be processed immediately after, in order to be still on time for you to get the rewards, use them and post pictures of your gaming sessions while the sun is still shining out there.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
