Display your cultist status with these fabulous Mythos-themed Cthulhu badges! Ideal for displaying on your person, dice bag, game gear, or even a hat!

We are looking for your backing to fund this set of badges!

NEW STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCED!  

Having unleashed the cults of the Mythos, we're now proud to announce a stretch goal badge - The Esoteric Order of Dagon badge!  

Stretch Goal Target £3500

Esoteric Order of Dagon  

During the 1830s, Captain Obed Marsh traded with the degenerate natives of an unnamed Pacific island. Through their chief, Walakea, he learned terrible rites that would allow him to summon Deep Ones. Returning to his native Innsmouth, Marsh founded the Esoteric Order of Dagon, a secretive cult that has since spread its fell influence throughout the entire town.

ALL BACKERS (apart from folk selecting the No Reward pledge level) will receive the Esoteric Order of Dagon badge completely FREE as part of their rewards!

We have just one pledge level for this Kickstarter. If you're quick to the party (or cult gathering, if you prefer), you can get the badge set at a small discount! This early bird will not be available after 100 backers have pledged for them!

We've just released a very special and VERY LIMITED pledge level that includes the first set of Mythos Book Badges! Grab it while you can!

This set of five badges are made from die struck metal and hard enamel colors. Each badge comes with a butterfly catch.  

Designed in house at Triple Ace Games, the Mythos Badges are a unique collectible item.

Servants of the Heretic Pharaoh

What few fragments of lore exist concerning Nephren-Ka speak of him as an insane pharaoh who instigated abolished the old faith in favor of dark rites honoring a monstrous deity. After his death, the name of the great heretic was erased from the list of kings and queens, and all statues and inscriptions bearing his name smashed. A cult in his name still exists today. Its goal is to locate his earthly remains and return them to life so that he may start a new reign of terror.

Cult of the Black Hand

The Islamic sect known in the West as the Assassins were led by the Old Man of the Mountain. The Old Man was, in fact, an avatar of Nyarlathotep. None ever saw his full form, for it was wrapped in a voluminous black robe, save for his withered and blackened right hand. With a touch of this gnarled limb he could bestow his worshipers with supernatural abilities or condemn them to a grisly death.

Illuminated Fraternity of the All-Seeing Eye

Whereas many cults appeal to those at the lower end of the social spectrum, the Illuminated Fraternity counts among its ranks businessmen, politicians, and military officers, plus a few aristocrats. The cult has a single goal—authoritarian world domination. Nations and religions will be swept aside in favor of worship of the All- Seeing Eye, a single global government, and a common language.

Black Scorpion Brotherhood

Founded in Predynastic Upper Egypt during the rule of a king known to modern Egyptologists as Scorpion I, the vile cult not only remains strong today, it has spread beyond Egypt. The Brotherhood (which accepts women) has no real unity and no long-term goals. Instead, members are encouraged to engage in their wildest desires and perversions.

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.

We understand that you may wish to get 2, 3, or even 4 sets of badges for friends, family, or fellow cultists!

Triple Ace Games began in 2008. The masterminds behind the company, Paul "Wiggy" Wade-Williams and Robin Elliott, had previously worked on The Savage World of Solomon Kane and Slipstream settings, among others, for Pinnacle Entertainment Group. Triple Ace Games has produced many popular settings, including Hellfrost, Leagues of Adventure, Leagues of Gothic Horror, Leagues of Cthulhu, and All for One: Regime Diabolique, plus the Rocket Race, Cadaver, Imps, and Halfling Feast card games. With many years of experience in the games industry, we continue to create fantastic games for everyone.

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.
