One of the biggest things I'm hoping to add to the podcasts is new Art as well as updated gear for Skype and livestream games. Once we have launched I'll using feedback from our Facebook page on what stretch goals you all would like to see added.

The D&D Journey of the fifth edition and the Creative Play and podcast Network aren’t in any danger of going away because all of us love and adore creating and sharing our adventures each week, and we won’t be stopping anytime soon!

So why the Kickstarter you ask?

While we vastly enjoy what we do, we want to be able to do a better job! Because D&D and Role playing games has always been a hobby we have enjoyed through the years, back in 2014 we decided to start sharing out game sessions online so we would remember were we left off in games and so I began my adventure in learning how to podcast, with our game sessions being recorded and edited in my spare time and I’ll admit some of those earlier episodes I had less time then others. We are asking for your support so we can give you a better Show along with extra perks like bringing you our listeners onto the show. We really care about our viewers and listeners and want to give you the best of what we've got; after all we listen to us too! Our first priority is Hosting for the podcasts, website and subscriptions. Believe it or not, you have to pay for these things.

If were really lucky we will even use the Kickstarter stretch goals to add new podcasts, groups and functionality to the website like forums and galleries for the amazing fan art and fan submissions we’ve received. Our next priority is new equipment. The sound quality of some of our early episodes has been suspect to say the least. We could very easily decide to pick up recording again like we currently do, but we would like more options. Gone could be the days of random, last minute recording sessions at random venues. We definitely want to step up our games for you and would love if we hit the goal to record in a set up studio and host more online recording gaming events.

Finally, we just really want to make cool swag and have a way to distribute it to our listeners. Creating things like t-shirts and dice bags are super fun, and this is an easy way for us to make things happen. We’re also pleased to announce that we will be including dice with our hand crafted dice bags.

The D&D Journey of the fifth edition and our other podcasts have been a fantastic experience so far and we want to make it even better.

We'd really like to purchase new audio equipment (mics, etc.) and more importantly hire artists to draw characters, places and events from the show. Jim would also like to dedicate himself to working on our podcasts full time, but this is just going to be his use of the ‘Wish’ spell if he ever gets so lucky. The better our Kickstart does the more episodes and things we can do! Here is a more detailed list of what you'll be getting.

• A guaranteed 50+ episodes of D&D Journey of the fifth edition podcast a year. (Now that’s not including the other podcasts well be doing on Ragnarok and Roll and Creative play and podcast network)

• An overall better sound quality on the show itself.

• At least 4 Live episodes a year.

• More Youtube content and videos of the cast.

• A "Welcome to Dungeon" guide for new fans. So please, help us bring the D&D Journey of the fifth edition Podcast to the next level (so we can get that more Spells per day).

Early Bird backers The First 5 backers will be invited to a tabletop game day at a local game store or on Roll20 a week after the Kickstarter finishes!

$6000 More Games! Well add another game system/podcast to the network as voted by the fans!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

As long as all of the hosts stay healthy and sane, there will be no troubles in completing this project. Audio quality is a high standard that has became increasingly difficult to maintain, due to the inconsistency in recording locales which we try and keep to Local Game Stores. We didn’t know from week-to-week where we were going to be or even if we were going to record. Game stores, Hotels, garages, conference rooms... we have recorded at least one episode in all of them. I’m concerned that it might get to the point where the burden and uncertainty could be too much and we decided to stop the show, but that’s not happening anytime soon!

Due to the nature of DnD, your favorite character could possibly die, but the host will have the option to replace their lost character.

One of the biggest risks of us failing to reach the amount is that the project may not be as refined and fleshed out as imagined. The project will run into difficulties and scheduling problems, that's the nature of these projects. Its our ability to adapt to them that will help us gain the experience the industry expects us to have for similar projects.

Individual episodes may not be ready in time or perhaps due to personal matters a cast member may not be able to record on a particular week. These problems would result in a couple of day’s extension.

Guest appearances and play sessions will be conducted via Skype and Roll20. You will be expected to have a computer, internet connection and microphone to participate. Guest appearances will normally take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 830pm EST. Play sessions will be scheduled for weeknights between 8pm and 12am EST or weekends at various times between 10am and 10pm. Your first choice for scheduling may not be available, but we will do our best to get you a time that will work.
