"The jade amulet now reposed in a niche in our museum, and sometimes we burned strangely scented candles before it. We read much in Alhazred’s Necronomicon about its properties, and about the relation of ghouls’ souls to the objects it symbolised; and were disturbed by what we read." - H. P. Lovecraft, The Hound
NEW STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCED!
Having unleashed the horror of the Mythos, we're now proud to announce a stretch goal - an Elder Sign badge!
Stretch Goal Target £3000
ALL BACKERS (apart from folk selecting the No Reward pledge level) will recieve the Elder Sign badge completly FREE as part of their rewards!
History of the Elder Sign
The Elder Sign is a protective ward. Invoked as a hand gesture, it serves the same function as protection against the evil eye or crossing oneself —comforting, but ultimately without benefit. Carved into something solid—rock, glass, wood, or even precious metal—enchanted with magic, and worn openly, it provides a defense against the minions of the Great Old Ones.
Welcome to our Kickstarter for a set of soft enamel badges featuring some of the most infamous Cthulhu Mythos books ever read by scholars of elder lore! Show your knowledge of the Mythos by displaying these badges on your person, dice bag, game gear, or even a hat!
We are looking for your backing to fund this set of badges!
We have just one pledge level for this Kickstarter. If you're quick to the party, however, you can get the badge set at a small discount! This early bird will not be available after the first 24 hrs.
This set of five badges are made from die struck metal and soft enamel colors. Each badge comes with a butterfly catch.
Designed in house at Triple Ace Games, the Mythos Badges are a unique collectible item. These exclusive badges will only be available from this Kickstarter and if in stock from our trade stand at conventions. We won't be making them available in our online store after this Kickstarter ends!
Necronomicon Book Badge
Arguably the most damnable document ever penned in the history of humanity, the Necronomicon concerns matters and entities beyond the understanding of sane men. It speaks of elder gods and spaces between reality, of insidious words that can drive men to madness, of lost cities inhabited by creatures that defy the laws of nature, and of a time before time when terrible things walked upon the earth and swam in the sea. It is a book from which a magician might acquire great power, if he is prepared to pay the terrible price.
Unaussprechlichen Kulten Book Badge
Written by Friedrich Wilhelm von Junzt (1795-1840) and published in 1839, the text (also known as the Black Book) details a number of vile cults. Some appear fictional, their existence being placed at a date before the accepted creation of the first civilizations. Others concern more recent, yet no less barbaric cults.
King in Yellow Book Badge
The King in Yellow is a forbidden play. Its name is well known to actors through hearsay and gossip, yet few have ever seen a copy. Even so, it is greatly feared among thespians. Written in two acts for three characters, Cassilda, Camilla, and the King in Yellow (a malevolent supernatural figure of mysterious origin), merely the act of reading the play can cause madness or despair.
Cultes des Goules Book Badge
Denounced by the Church on its publication, this text graphically exposes the vile arts of necromancy, necrophagy, and necrophilia practiced by a cult in France.
Cthulhu Cultist Badge
The cult of dread Cthulhu has existed since the dawn of mankind and continues to plot the ascension of its master to this day. In order that cultists might recognize each other, they sport pins or tattoos of the abominable Great Old One.

Risks and challenges
The design and all of the artwork has been completed for the badges, so we know exactly what will be going into the final product. We also have a great deal of experience in the field of games publishing and manufacturing items like these badges.
However, things can go wrong with anything that goes into a manufacturing process. We have identified that delays in manufacturing could happen. So we have allowed additional time in our schedule to enable us to navigate any delay issues. If all goes to plan, we may even be able to deliver the project a little sooner.
With projects like this there is nearly always something that costs more so it is good business sense to have some contingency for this, which we have built in to our costs.
No matter what problems may occur we will always keep our backers and supporters informed of all issues so that you are aware of the situation and how we are dealing with it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
