Middle-Aged ... In Middle Earth
Two barbarian brothers, powerful in violence if not in mind, are on a quest to restore their lost youth—stolen from them by an evil witch. Now they are teenage boys trapped in the flabby bodies and bald heads of middle-age men. They roam the land, killing orcs (and sheep) that cross their path.\

How Does Kickstarter Work?
Here’s the short version: For one
month anyone can make pledges for this project, starting at $1 and going
up as high as you’re willing. Then you can select a reward package
equal to or less than the amount of your pledge. You can pledge more
than a reward level if you choose, which is something that international
backers will need to do to cover shipping. Your credit card won’t be
charged until the project is funded, so you can adjust or cancel your
pledge up until the deadline. Once the project is funded we’ll proceed with the production and offering you the promised rewards.
I live outside the USA. Do I need to pay extra?
We wish that shipping to other countries didn’t make things more expensive, but it does raise the cost a bit. Note these rewards only apply to physical rewards (such as DVDs). Canada/Mexico Backers: Please add $8 to your pledge to cover the additional cost of shipping your rewards. Overseas Backers: Please add $15.
