The Man Jack - FUNDED

Rise of the Cat People - Stretch Goal $5000

42 - $7500

Plus the reveal of our secret 4th comic book is still to come. The cover art will blow. your. mind.

When you play an real-play tabletop RPG, you always run the risk of having the dice kill one of your characters. When you play an H.P. Lovecraft inspired game, the chances of having the dice kill one of your characters is almost certain.

For our GM, saying she thinks outside the box is an understatement; she destroys the box. It's because of these classic critical failures during gameplay that much of her storytelling must go untold. Now, in an effort to give the fans more of the rich story that they have been craving and to give our GM the creative outlet she desires, we're going to start releasing a series of comic books.

We're starting this Kickstarter with the goal to create Volume 1, Issue 1, titled, The Man Jack. This issue is written by our GM, Veronica Lovecraft and Illustrated by Andrina Sawatzky. Each time we hit a stretch goal, we'll add another comic to the line up and each subsequent issue will be written by Veronica and Illustrated by a new artist.

As of today Veronica has written:

The Man Jack, Rise of the Cat People, 42, and [4th Project Untitled]. If we're able to hit all of our stretch goals, all of these scripts will immediately and simultaneously go into production as soon as we're funded and there's more scripts where those came from.

Risks and challenges

As with any creative endeavor, often times there are unforeseen events that take place in individuals' lives. Should production need to be paused or slowed down to accommodate life, we'll let you know and give you a timeline for when you can expect us to begin working at full steam again. All of our progress will be logged on an exclusive wordpress site where people can pay a small fee to have unlimited access to many of the goings on surrounding our production.
