Nothing is more immersive than pulling a literal arcane tome, book of shadows, or grimoire straight from your game and onto your gaming table. In this Kickstarter you’ll create your own customized pocket-sized highly prized Spellbook to encase your dice and miniatures. You’ll personalize the art, material components, and design to manifest your imagination. Living materials together with millions of combinations means your Spellbook Mini will be your own showpiece unlike any other.

As with their predecessors, Spellbook Minis are crafted in luxurious foil-stamped leather, individualized signature art, and a spectacular array of hand-finished natural wood options. Except smaller. They've got a felt or leather lined lid that forms a rolling tray, removable foam to keep your contents safe, and rare-earth magnets to lock down the pocket-package for gaming on the go.

A book of adventures adventuring within an adventuring book

With multiple configurable interior designs to choose from, these tiny tasteful testaments to talented tradesmanship are travel-tamed teeny trunks teeming with the tools to transport your tentorial tidbits tangibly to the tabletop. Read on to learn the details of how you can customize yours, including Kickstarter exclusives and special editions made possible by the folks at Penny Arcade, Infinite Black, and Abbot’s Hollow. Get your eldritch adventures started right and build your personalized tome today!

Zoop zoop zoop!
He's probably just sleeping >.>

When writing your adventurer's Spellbook, make sure each leaf represents who you are and how you game. If you want full control over building your Spellbook Mini, pledge for the Classic Spellbook Mini reward. Scroll down to "building and customization" to learn about the options available, or if scrolling is too fraught use our pledge builder tool to digitally preview every modifiable aspect of your new tome.

It all makes sense if you are bad at noticing things

Elderwood and Infinite Black have teamed up to add the occult horror of the Cthulhu mythos  to your games with Infinite Black’s Elder Dice and special-edition Spellbook Minis. Infinite Black is helmed by David LaRocca and Heath Robinson, experts in Lovecraftian madness and game narrative. They’ve masterfully created a monstrous family of gaming gear to perfectly enhance your fantasy and horror roleplaying experience, and now you can enjoy those dreadful dividends in natural hardwood, real leather, and bespoke foil-pressed art.

Choose one of six special-edition Spellbook Minis that uniquely blends Elderwood and Infinite Black’s craftsmanship and artistic style. Bring some primordial havoc to your game with these tomes of the elder gods.

As a special Kickstarter exclusive we've included limited Doom Edition printings, versions of each Infinite Black Spellbook Mini forged in black leather with red foil pressed art. No matter which Spellbook Mini you land on, you can choose to complete the look by adding on a set of Elder Dice, themed arrays of nine polyhedral dice (1d4, 3d6, 1d8, 1d10, 1d100, 1d12, 1d20) with unique eldritch art replacing the highest value.

One shipment of Spellbook Minis lingered too long at Abbot’s Hollow Studios, and we’re pleased to dispo- *offer* those transfigured Mini Monster Spellbooks to anyone who desires a brisk and invigorating dose of peril. Mini Monsters are lovingly brought to life by the Necromancer Cieszynski, who has stitched together Elderwood’s classic hardwood and luxurious designs with old fashioned Necro-how to create dice-and-miniature chomping abominations. Game dangerously; risk your most precious gaming goods with any of the four Mini Monster designs, Grin, Scowl, Cyclops Grin or Cyclops Scowl. Point your browser at Igor, our cuthtom pledge builder cuthtodian if you require virtual assistance with choosing the right Monster for you.

These official Penny Arcade field guides (issued at nominal cost to all new employees of Acquisitions Inc.) contain tips and tricks to make it to the end of day 1 with most essential organs still intact. Learn to thrive from the best in the business. Each pocketbook contains ten Corporate-Issue random number generators (in seven denominations with four random variance cubes), and a reference guide entitled "How To Labor Post Mortem." Choose between the Intern Survival Guide and the Employee Manual. If you want a little more detail on what your book could look like, visit the pledge assistant portal to start digitally previewing your new adventuring life right away! 

Survival on the left, employee decorum and expectations on the right

While the Classic Spellbook Mini reward offers by far the most freedom to craft your ideal book, the Special Editions include a host of adjustable features of their own. Read on to learn about all the ways in which you can create your optimized build. 

It's... right behind me, isn't it?

Cover Art

With Classic Mini Spellbook rewards, you can choose from our wide array of Signature and Premium art for your cover. For this campaign you'll be able to select your border and icon art foil colors in gold, silver, bronze, pewter, black, ocean, maroon, forest, holographic, or red holographic.

Live in a summoning circle, visit fancy vistas!

Leather Selection

Available in the Classic Mini Spellbook reward and select Special Edition rewards, pick from one of our three vole-skin soft leathers to adorn your 'Book. Stay tuned for even more options if we reach our stretch goals!


Wood options

Available to all tiers, you'll choose what wood will make up the sanded-smooth hand-finished core of your Spellbook Mini. Choose from domestic and exotic hardwoods like classic Cherry, dark Walnut, regal Purpleheart, and midnight Wenge. Follow our stretch goals for added wood options as the campaign continues!


Interior Design

Spellbook Minis come in four configurations; the sleek and slim Open and Decader, and the virtuous and mighty Hero and Extended. Open and Extended come with removable foam inserts to help cradle your gear, while Hero and Decader include precision carved geography to keep your gaming kit spellbound. All four include the option to level up the lining to leather, adding luster to the lid's built-in miniature rolling tray. Be aware that only Hero and Extended are tall enough to fit 28mm miniature bases.

Check out the pledge guide below to figure out exactly what you should pledge for each reward. If you're unsure, you can preview and confirm your pledges at our custom pledge building page, which navigates and simulates each Spellbook Mini right before your eyes. 



Cool books don't look at raging rapids

As always, if you want to reach out and speak to someone, or you much desire one of our artisinal gnome selfies, reach out to info@elderwoodacademy.com and your requestions will be supplied.

That building is 6 inches tall.
