Sword-and-sorcery meets comedy in this tale of two teenage barbarians trapped in middle-age bodies by a witch's curse.

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.\

Who's Doing This?

5-Star Barbarians is the web entertainment production company that produced the successful first season of Brothers Barbarian, which featured hobby game and fantasy lit luminaries including Larry Elmore, Margaret Weis, and Tracy Hickman. We're looking for your help to make Season Two bigger and better than ever.

What's This Web Series About?

Brothers Barbarian a fantasy-comedy mashup telling the story of two teenage barbarians cursed by an evil witch to age a good thirty or so years and more than twice that many pounds. The series combines wit and humor with action and magic to tell a fun story. Stunt casting from legendary artists, authors, and game designers helps make our show even more entertaining for our target audience of gamers and lovers of sword-and-sorcery fiction.

If you want to know more about Brothers Barbarian, the best thing to do is watch it! You can start with Episode One right here and see for yourself!

What Will The Backers Get?

Starting at ten dollars our backers will receive first-eyes access to exclusive online content, and at $25 you'll get a Season One DVD of the series plus an HD-quality download of all of Season Two. Getting higher you can get doodles or illustration-quality drawings from legendary artist Larry Elmore. Our highest-level backers can come down for the shoot and stay in the historic Doe Run Inn and see the production in-progress!

What If We Beat Our Goal?

That's a good thing, right? More money will allow us to do things even bigger and better than before, keeping our production quality high and stretching out the season. Watch our updates, because we'll be announcing stretch goes, our special guest stars, and more!

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.
