About

Darkness Incarnate

Darkness Incarnate is a Modern Horror Tabletop RPG using the D20 system. We will be unique in that all of the Gameplay Material released for Darkness Incarnate will be available online via our Website for a monthly subscription fee of under $10! 

What We Promise

  • A complete, ready to play system and website by March 2019. For those that pledge and receive Alpha Testing Rights, you will start to get your hands dirty in October 2018!
  • A low monthly fee, with only a month-to-month commitment. As almost life-long tabletop RPG players, the creative team here felt this was the fairest way to get our content to our players. Traditionally, in order to try out a Tabletop RPG, one must spend anywhere from $35 to $175 to fully experience what the game has to offer; even just once. By offering our information on a website with a low monthly subscription fee we are able to get players in, see if they like it, and keep giving them content as fast as possible!
  • No Ads! Ever! I felt like this should go without saying, but we will never advertise anything on our site that is not Darkness Incarnate. We DO hope to have an entirely separate page dedicated to helping the Artists and Writers we've hired for our Content Creation. It will not be a part of the Content Website, and will be solely to help them promote their work. 

What We Need

  • Website Overhaul - As we finished developing this system and loading it onto a website it became immediately apparent that our Creative Team needs some good old fashioned Tech Help! In order to properly present the massive amount of information we have for this setting we need a complete website redesign. The bulk of the money we are asking during this campaign will go towards this and this alone. This money will go towards setting up a login system, direct payment receipt, and a condensed site redesign. 
  • Website Hosting and Monitoring - The hosting and monitoring of our site will be done by the same company that provides the redesign in order to ensure the fastest updates possible for our users. 
  • Trademark & Licenses - A necessary evil in today's world, however, our current system should not require licensing. We are simply being cautions and proactive in our attempts to confirm this.
  • Art - The bulk of the remaining funds will be used to purchase original art for Darkness Incarnate. With each new City that we release we plan to hire artists local to that city for the artwork required. 
  • Creative Content - We will also be reaching out to local writers, or even players, for each City we are implementing. We hope to get information on the best local "haunts" directly from the players that live there. 

Thank you for your interest in Darkness Incarnate! Please feel free to reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook, and be sure to check out what we have on our Website so far!

Risks and challenges

If we do receive our funding, then our next greatest challenge will be ensuring the construction of our website in a timely fashion. We have discussed our Website needs at length with the company slated to perform the redesign, and we have provided ample time for them to complete it before Alpha Testing begins. Our Creative Team will be doing a Livestream/Podcast every other week throughout this development phase, hopefully showing you the progress each step of the way. We also have an independent Third Party that has reviewed our work order and summary of duties to ensure fair treatment and realistic development times.
Our next challenge will be to ensure content creation from Local Artists and Writers. This is fairly easy to overcome in that we have already begun reaching out to our first three cities, and will have plenty of time before the next ones publish.
