About this project

 3E - Deathbark Woods

3E - Deathbark Woods is a self-published, highly detailed full colour graphic novel in the making. The culmination of over five years of writing and design, it is the first of six forthcoming volumes, and will consist of approximately 105 pages.

If reached, the $9,000 goal will permit me to fully commit myself to 3E - Deathbark Woods and complete the project in approximately seven months, followed by its first print run in the third quarter of 2014.

This is a major labor of love, with which I hope to enrich the world of graphic novels.

3E started when I found an old Fighting Fantasy and Choose your own adventure book and remembered how much fun those types of books used to be. I wanted to create a visual story where, instead of you being the hero, you were a sort of Dungeon Master and chose the path for your characters. Guide them through the frightening Deathbark Woods.

I’m calling on you guys to help meet the minimum print run cost and other stuff that goes into making this book.

I'm working hard on getting all the book's pages inked, lettered and coloured (every day after work till 4am). My main focus is to get this book completed quickly and looking perfect for when it is printed.

3E is a story of three elves and their travels across the land of Faeth in search of adventure and glory. They travel across Deathbark Woods, Mount Saurian, Underwater city of Wurun, Sacred tomb of Aarath, Moonblood Marshes, Castle of Chaos, and many other hazardous locations.

The first book takes place in the Deathbark Woods. Sand, an elf from the deserts of Darakhoon, is searching for fame and glory. Veralyn is a dark elf from the caverns of Ul-matier and her personal quest is to achieve furthur knowledge to becoming a better magic wielder. Eradoom is an elven dwarf from the caves of Modgar whose dream is to acquire wealth. Together they believe they can achieve their goals a lot quicker. Your goal is to guide our heroes safely through the the deadly and treacherous woods while encountering its dangerous monsters and strange inhabitants, and attain the Orb of Gar.

The Orb of Gar is an object of unlimited power, which is believed to have been created by the ancient gods, many millennia ago. The Orb is so old that nobody knows how to wield it, yet many powerful leaders, sorcerers, warlocks and warlords desperately desire it. One such wealthy warlock, Zarr Amarazz, has promised a reward of fifty thousand gold pieces, immense fame and secrets of his magic to anyone who brings him the Orb. Many warriors and ruffians have set out to find the Orb, which is rumored to be resting within the Deathbark Woods. Unbeknownst to all seekers, is that the Shadow Knight, Rothedun, guards it. 

The primary goal of this Kickstarter is to get Book 1 completed and printed, with a secondary goal of turning 3E into a full time job. 

 Book 1 - Deathbark Woods - is only the tip of the iceberg, and sets up many events to come in the rest of series.

Risks and challenges
