About

The Lesser Key of Solomon, also known as the Clavicula Salomonis Regis or Lemegeton, is an anonymous grimoire on demonology. It was compiled in the mid-17th century, mostly from materials a couple of centuries older. The book reputedly contained magical seals that could be used in the summoning and controlling of seventy-two demons.

The Seal of Azathoth

As a game designer, writer, and movie producer, I have often needed props to bring my stories to life. Unfortunately, the props I really needed had not been made by anyone and I found myself feeling mighty low when I was forced to do without. I read S.L Macgregor Mathers and looked at the wonderful occult art and thought, "I need something like this for my games."

The Seal of Cthulhu

I have often wondered what those seals would have looked like had Lovecraft designed them for his Cthulhu Mythos. This inspired me to create many different seals for use with my gamers. Games like Call of Cthulhu went so far as to give us much great source material for the would be cultist but it was not enough for my games.

As such I scoured the internet for great artists and eventually found one who understood my needs. I commissioned Bryan Reagan to create twelve seals. I then consulted with many different companies that make coins. Finally I settled on one that could produce something of the quality that I was seeking. I sent them the sketches and this kickstarter was born.

 Here is a list of all of the seals created so far:

Seal of Azathoth

Seal of Cthulhu

Seal of Yog Sothoth

Seal of Shub Niggurath

Seal of Nyarlathotep

Seal of Tsathoggua

Seal of Ygolonac

Sigil of the Yellow King Cult

Sigil of the Black Brotherhood

Sigil of Alhazred

Sigil of the Esoteric Order of Dagon

Sigil of the Church of Starry Wisdom

Nyarlathotep

I am asking for $15,000 as that is the minimum for me to make production costs. These costs include art design, molds, crafting, etc. Each seal is a piece of art and one of a kind. I have engaged a professional coin mint to make the coins and already have proofs in hand. As the art is complete, the proofs complete, and the concept complete, all I need now is the hard cash to make it all happen. That means I need you and your generosity.

COIN DETAILS

Type: Coins (3.0mm thick solid brass)

Size: 1.75”

Plating: Antique Bronze

About Me


My name is Steve Wollett. I have been an avid gamer for more than thirty years. Gaming has inspired me to push my limits in other areas of life. As such I have been involved in more than seventy films in various capacities. On that note, I have been a producer in more than forty films. I also have authored two books, the most well known of which is, Blasphemous Cocktails. Blasphemous Cocktails was also a kickstarter and also inspired by HP Lovecraft. While my ideas do flow like a river, they are often dammed by a lack of funding so I am truly hoping this project will be a huge success. My personal history includes service in the US Army, working as a paramedic and firefighter, a brief run for Sheriff, and many years running a health food store in Baltimore, Maryland. When I truly love something, I give it my all and work like a horse. I truly love this project and am ready to make it a success.

The Artist Who Inspired this coin series

Bryan "MRZARONO" Reagan

Bryan is famed in many dark circles for his work to bring to life the Necronomicon. His artwork is truly out of this world and holds a deeper truth to it than is at first seen in the pages. Here is some of the art Bryan has created. Judge for yourself.If you like his work here, check out his work on DeviantArt.

Todd Gdula

Todd is a master blade-smith of some renown. I have known him for many years and can tell you that his work ethic and ability are phenomenal. He has agreed to offer his awesome Cthulhu Heads to backers of this project as a $40.00 add-on or as part of one of the reward levels. These little devils are so wicked that they will bring blasphemy into any situation. Small enought to fit in your pocket, yet hefty enough to remind you they are there. Use Cthulhu as a worry stone and make all of your dark dreams come true.Check out Todd's work at http://www.toddblades.com/

Here are some details about these little devils.:

Antiqued Bronze Cthulhu Head

  • 2.25” long and about 1.3 Ounces
  • Sintered from pure powdered bronze at 1500°F
  • Antiqued in liver of sulfur solution
  • A Great Old One that fits in your pocket.


As this is an all or nothing format we are hopeful for a fast full success, so lets talk about stretch goals.


STRETCH GOALS


$18,000     A free PDF copy of the artwork that inspired the coins will be added to all full sets.

$20,000    We will design a cool Lovecraftian Wall Paper and add it to all orders.

$25,000    We will create an ADDON and make a badass T-Shirt with all of the seals and sigils 

$30,000    We will design a secret limited edition 13th coin that will mark your membership into a secret society not to be named. This coin will be added to all full sets and only available to those who pledge for a full set.

$45,000    You will get the choice of Antique Bronze or Antique Silver as a finish for your coins.

Risks and challenges

Now you may be thinking that other Kickstarters run late, fail to deliver, or just don’t satisfy your needs. Let me say this, the hard work is done, we are ready to go forward, proofs have been made and the printer says he can make the coins in under a month from date of order. So all we need is to give him the GO. I am 100% certain that if this project is funded, we will be ready to ship early. I chose a late date of delivery on the off chance something unforeseen might come up.
