Crafthulhu Returns...

"Ph'nglui Mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn."

It's great to back with all of you on Kickstarter!  When the creator of Arkham Horror and Elder Sign (and consultant for Eldritch Horror), Richard Launius, e-mailed me about how much he finds our pieces an attractive and thematically relevant addition to the game, I certainly listened.  Several dozen Arkhamaniacs on various gaming fora also contacted me since we concluded the last KS project.  Finally, I gave all of it serious consideration after a number of Backers reached out to me following their recent Cthulhu-esque purchases and/or gifts.

"Joe, the stuff looks great...really cool! Next time I get my royalty check I will order some of the stuff."

Richard Launius, creator of Arkham Horror

Just as we had conducted the last Kickstarter Project, we need the funding to turn our Masterpieces into molds and eventual castings for all of you.  I can't wait to see all of the beautiful pictures capturing our pieces gracing more gaming tables across the country and around the world!

No Stretch Goals to get these pieces to your Gaming Table!

     Thanks to the previous Kickstarter Campaign, we can skip the Stretch Goal idea and move right into getting all of the pieces into your hands.

     Please browse the aisles of this historic dwelling and should you decide to make a purchase, simply add the amount to your pledge level.  The Curiosittie Shoppe is open ONLY for Cultist Acolytes, Priests, High Priests, Patriarchs, and Arch-Patriarchs:

Stretch Goals

     This time, we have only two Stretch Goals...one to Conjure the Artist and Design the Player's Plate.

Conjure the Artist: $4,500 ~ UNLOCKED!

Despite having a number of other artistic responsibilities, your pledges will assist the Members of the Twilight Lodge to conjure up our beloved Artist to assist in designing and crafting the predominant card holder for EH.  Any Backers at the following levels: Cultist Acolytes, Priests, High Priests, Patriarchs, and Arch-Patriarchs may cast a vote to decide what images shall adorn the outside of the card holder:

  • Iconic set of carvings from around the world: Big Ben, Eiffel Tower, etc. OR
  • Seven Wonders of the World

Through Arkham's Gates: $6,000 ~ UNLOCKED!

As we rapidly approach 200% funded, I've asked the "Artist" to create something memorable for the occasion.  Backers may receive Arkham's Gates in lieu of the regular Elder Sign ones. For $35, a Backer can add a set of 5 Arkham Gates to their collection. 

The Great Old One, Cthulhu
The Great Old One, Cthulhu
As Cthulhu Sleeps
As Cthulhu Sleeps
Set of 5 Arkham Gates

Design the Player's Plate: $7,000 ~ UNLOCKED!

     Again, we invite Backers at the Cultist Acolytes, Priests, High Priests, Patriarchs, and Arch-Patriarchs levels to assist us in designing a great device which will make the management and organization of your Investigator, cards, and tokens elegant and functional. 

[Peek Behind the Curtain:  It takes approximately 25-30 hours of work to draft/finalize drawings; carve the initial piece; and render a final Masterpiece.  Additionally, there's the initial set-up costs for any new Masterpiece's mold and a minimum number of casts]

About the Crafthulhu Team:

Crafthulhu is a Veteran-owned, small business with contacts in the community providing artisan-quality pieces for our sets.

Rob W.: For nearly three decades he has gained a professional reputation around the Philadelphia area as a designer, builder, sculptor, and painter, fabricating museum exhibits, trade show displays, custom signage/furniture, television sets/props, and industrial prototypes. Notable clients include: Mount Vernon Presidential Museum, William Clinton Presidential Library, National Infantry Museum, Philadelphia Zoo, Hans Christian Anderson Museum, NY Museum of Natural History, Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, MTV, NFL Films, and PBS/Sprout Network. Crafthulhu's card holders represent his latest custom crafted prototypes of functional thematic displays.

Feel free to contact The Artist at Scenicjedi@live.com

Joe P.: With absolutely no artistic talent whatsoever, Joe is relegated to all manner of financial and administrative matters. He has served 17 years in the United States Air Force (10 years Active Duty, and 7 years (currently) in the Reserves) and is employed by the Department of Justice. This Project started as an idea of how to organize the myriad pieces associated with many games ... what you have before you is an Idea brought to Life.

Risks and challenges

Risks & Challenges: Fortunately, we're working with professional artisans familiar with our pieces and while we foresee no issues in production, we're using the vast experience from our Successful Campaign last year to set our planning agenda. We'll give ourselves 4+ months after the Project period ends to start shipping our pieces.

As evidenced by our last Project, we will make near-daily updates to the site, as necessary. Additionally, every Backer heard from me within hours of their Pledge, thanking them for their contribution. I anticipate having the same level of customer service with this new Project.

All of our Backers, save the Arch-Patriarchs for whom we're painting each and every piece, have received their Rewards. We're excited to have these final sets out the door in the next few weeks!
