About

Howdy, we’re Quentin & Dan, the Elderwood Academy guys. We’ve spent years making premium wood and leathercraft gaming gear and we’re excited to share our latest venture: Centurion, the Elderwood Deck Box. Centurion is designed for collectible card games like Magic: the Gathering, and with the Dungeoneering Kit it doubles as a sleek travel pack for all your RPG needs.

Centurion embodies Elderwood’s tradition of combining wild wood, natural leather, and enchanting designs to create bespoke works of art you can play with. Build yours by choosing exactly the right combination of living materials to transform your gaming experience into a mesmerizing tableau.

Forever yours,

<3, Q&D

Centurion for your deck and RPGs

Dost thou dry erase, brusefth?
Dost thou dry erase, brusefth?

Centurion is your premier, fully customized reliquary for Magic: the Gathering decks and D&D gear. Create an instant classic for your red and green deck with rich Garnet leather, gleaming green foil, and a burning golden flame. Enshrine your black and blue deck in Obsidian black leather with vibrant metallic blue foil around a gleaming pewter skull. Your options are endless, empowering you to customize each feature to perfectly complement your game.

Match your foil, leather, and art to your deck

You have three options when crafting your Centurion. The Large, Standard, and Compact versions respectively hold one hundred double-sleeved, one hundred single-sleeved, and eighty single-sleeved cards. Each version locks shut with powerful magnets and includes a removable back-plate, the fauxdoor, that serves as a dry-erase surface to track life and temporary stats.

Large and Standard Centurions include a hidden compartment that fits your tokens and dice

If you’re an RPG enthusiast you can add a Dungeoneering Kit to either the Large or Standard Centurion to store and sort your RPG goods. Show up at the table with all your minis, dice, cards, and other gear ready for action.

Who is Elderwood Academy?

Elderwood was founded by Quentin Quadrangle and Dan Disco, total squares who like right angles, D&D, and woodcarving. When Q isn’t writing factor-label-method fanfictions he meditates on the size of intermediate numbers, like six. D has a penchant for playful parabolas. You can reach out to either of them at any time at info@elderwoodacademy.com, @elderwoodboxes on Twitter, at our Facebook page, or on our waterwheel-powered website.

Risks and challenges

We're returning to Kickstarter for Centurion because this will give us the best chance at creating an entirely new branch of Elderwood Academy whole-cloth. With five Kickstarters behind us and nearly a year of design and development completed, we're better prepared than ever to take on the challenges of sculpting leather, wood, and foil into fine finished objects.
