First, a limited reward tier backer (Empyreal, Eternal, & Hierarch) gets to select a deity, epic monster, or legendary item/artifact from real mythology or from a D&D setting's mythology (with limitations*). Then the design team takes that selection and develops game stats, lore, and commissions art for the chosen epic entity or item. Finally, when the entity or item's entry is finished, it will be included in an issue of the first year of Ascension.
But that is not the whole story. As part of the reward, the backer may simply request the entity or item that they want and the design team will run with it; or the backer can be intimately involved in the design process. The backer can review and provide comments on the stats, lore, & art prior to publishing. The backer may review the art request sent to the artist(s) and help shape the look of the item or entity. The backer could even submit a partial or complete draft (with lore, stats, etc.) for the design team to review, edit, and commission art for. We want to work with you. However, to be clear, HC Gaming LLC retains ownership of all items published in the pages of Ascension and is solely responsible for the final decisions and design of what will be published.
*Currently we can only publish Forgotten Realms, Ravenloft, Eberron, Ravnica, & setting neutral material. Feel free to send Dave a message for more information about D&D setting limitations.
