About

Would you like to check out the game first? A FREE downloadable quickstart adventure can be downloaded here

Cleadonia is a role playing game were players take on the roles of adventurers who explore the hidden and dangerous corners of the world. The game takes place in a high fantasy world wherein lives many fantastic races, many of who are not your usual fantasy fair. In fact you will not find any playable Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Gnomes, Goblins, Halflings, or Orcs in this game. All the races in this game are anthropomorphic animals. Each race has their own culture, beliefs, customs, strengths and weaknesses.

                                    Samples of the playable Races.

I need your help to take my game to the next stage; Printing. My game has gone through 5 years of play testing. It is ready to be released to the public and all I need are the starting funds to bring it to print. The game is done, the book layout is also done, and most of the Illustrations are done and will be fully done by the time this Kickstarter campaign is over. All I need is your support to make my dream a reality. By becoming a backer you will receive a reward as a special thanks for your help. The type of rewards available include not only a copy of the game with a one of a kind fold out map of Cleadonia, but also Acrylic Charms, Art prints, and a custom Comic with tie in Adventure campaign just to name a few. I wouldn't expect anyone to support this kickstarter without first checking out my game for themselves. I have up online right at this moment a free Quickstarter of the game that comes with an adventure. Please download the Quickstarter, take a look at the rules and characters, and run the adventure with some friends. If you feel that this kickstarter is worth supporting then please do so and pass it on. Share it with friends and spread the word. You can find the Quickstarter at this the Web Address below.  

 Additional Game Art can be seen on My Behance Page.

Risks and challenges

As I stated previously, the game is done. It has been tested for 5 years, the layout is done, and the final illustrations are nearing completion. Once funded I will be contacting the printers and getting the files ready to send to them. I will also be contacting the various vendors to get the back rewards made as well. It is my plan to have everything finished and ready to ship at the same time, three months after the end of the kickstarter. All backer rewards will then be shipped to an amazon fulfillment center to allow professionals to quickly get your rewards to you as soon as possible.

The question that you might be asking yourself is, "Why $5,876? What does that cover?" Printing books, particularly books with colored illustrations are not cheap. However, the books I will be getting printed are soft covers and will be sold at retail for $28; whereas the cost of a hardbound book is double and would force the retail cost of the books to be closer to $50 per book. I believe that everyone should be able to afford a game book and not be forced to spend a lot of money to play a game and with that in mind I have set out to print my game in a form that will keep costs down while still keeping the quality up. Also this cost covers the additional fees for shipping and handling in the United states and getting the backer rewards made

My name is Josh Dixon, but most people call me Skull. I am a experienced freelance Animator, Illustrator, Game Designer, and Story Artist currently residing in Portland, Oregon. I have worked on commercials, video games, cartoons, and movies. The most recent projects I have worked on were the G.I. Jeff episode of Community and one of the end credit animations for 22 Jump Street. I fully understand and have meet many deadlines over the years and I bring to this project the same drive and focus that I bring to my professional life.

I have been playing roleplaying games since I was 16 years old. My first exposure to this awesome medium of storytelling and adventure was Palladium Fantasy. In no other medium can friends and
strangers meet together to cooperatively create fantastic tales of wonder, magic, and heroics. Not only can this medium open the doors to imagination and self expression, but they can also teach critical thinking, team work and social skills. Being a creative individual all this sparked my imagination into a storm and I have been hooked ever since. So it is no wonder that someday I would sit down and start to
craft my own games.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your support.
