Growing up, we all used to watch our favorite TV shows and Saturday morning cartoons. Whether it was the battles of the Power Rangers against Rita and her evil forces, cheering on Speed Racer as he tore up the tracks in the Mach 5, or sitting and learning life lessons about growing up from everybody’s favorite football head Arnold- we all were exposed to some awesome, unique characters and their worlds. Each episode left us wanting more, to the point that we’d go outside, put ourselves in their world and imagine we were those characters with our friends. Everyone watched shows that appealed to them and sparked their interests. We were crazy about our favorite characters. We could relate to them in some way, shape, or form. This is what we want to do here at SclObo. We want to tell a story, a fantastic tale about magic, great beasts, and some of the best friends you could ever have. We create streetwear that tells those stories. Each piece will focus around a particular point in the story and its characters. Not only will you be getting an awesome piece of gear to wear, but you’ll be wearing a helmet, a breastplate, a bracer- all inspired by our characters and their stories. You’ll be in their shoes or gauntlets, and have the lore behind it as well! Clothing with a story to tell!
At the end of their journey, Kam and Simon have finally found Grandmaster Yoh and his pupil, Inan, to tell them about their journey to GTD. Meanwhile, the Shadow King, Yhu, seeks to break the barrier between SclObonia and other worlds. Realizing this great threat, Yoh seeks the council and powers of The Ancient Ones and summons three new adventurers, Sjozet, Zurra, and Jinn, to prepare for the dark threat looming ahead. With the help of The Ancient Ones, Yoh is able to imbue each of our heroes with the power of one of the six elemental plains, each matching their personality. Before Yoh can transport them all, the Shadow King corrupts Jinn. Now under Yhu’s mind control and without his memories, Jinn lays waste to any and all that oppose the Shadow King. Will our heroes be able to master their newfound abilities and save this land from the impending darkness? Or will Yhu achieve his goal and bring darkness upon the land of SclObonia?
“But what if I want the whole epic tale that you have written in one place?” Don’t worry, SclObo has got you covered. We’ve cooked up a little something special for the true lore masters and record keepers out there. We’re putting the entire story in one collective anthology! For this Kickstarter event, we will be combining the story from all of the gear into one place. Get it while it’s hot! Just like the days of perusing the shelves of comic book shops for the latest issue of our favorite series, or running to our local bookstore to grab the next installment in a long running manga story fresh off the presses, every collector of literature has to have the complete collection in their arsenal. A true collectors item, this anthology will only be available in this form during this Kickstarter run. If you miss out, you’ll have to quest to collect the tale across all the pieces of gear we’ve been smithing! Whether you want to have the story for yourself, or to tell the tale for generations, the anthology is for you!
If ScObo is a roaring fire, then you, our backers, are the fuel and the very essence of the movement! Without you, we would not be able to burn bright and bring our dreams to life. This is something we are very passionate about and we wanted to come up with a way to immortalize the occasion. Each one of our backers who supports this event, no matter the tier or amount donated, will have their name inscribed in our Hall of Champions, where it will echo throughout history. We want to thank you for believing in us and our dream. Our Hall of champions will be uploaded to our webpage and will also be printed in a special dedication section in the physical anthology of our story.
A lot of us here at SclObo are just your friendly neighborhood nerds and gamers, but if you aren't, that's cool too. Our experience ranges from corporate backgrounds, to artists, authors, teachers, programmers, and even health nuts. Athletes have gear tailored for themselves, chefs have those big hats, business professionals have suits, and our favorite superheroes have their costumes. We wear so many hats throughout the day, constantly changing them. Each outfit for a different occasion. We go from Miles Morales to Spider-man multiple times a day. So, what about those of us who want our gear to reflect who we are as individuals, not just our professions or hobbies? What if we want to be Spider-man all day, or just Miles? That’s what SclObo is for. You should define what you wear, not the other way around. This gives us the opportunity to tell our own, completely original story across separate articles of clothing. Think of it as little vignettes that all come together to form a bigger picture. We have so much we want to show you- from art, music, and of course, an exciting story!

Oh and by the way, we know you've been looking at the awesome character art that we've been teasing. Now, we usually don't put those designs on clothing since we like to keep them in the realms of our story, but just for this event we will be bringing them out of the pages and into the presses! We have set up a nifty little achievement system just like our favorite video games have. The more you complete, the more characters you can unlock to place on your favorite pieces of gear. We will also throw in some other goodies for you as well. So to all my achievement hunters out there, happy hunting!!!
We also wanted to include a little something extra special for our backers. All of our backers who donate $35 or more will receive a loot box. To those who may not be familiar with what it is, a loot box is a box filled with an assortment of items in relation to the curator of the box- which is, in this case, SclObo. We will fill it up little knick knacks and trinkets that we’ve come up with and created. Who knows, there may even be an extra something special inside a few boxes!
Every super team has one, and so do we! "What is a SclObo?" I'm pretty sure you have asked yourself that once or twice after landing on this page. Well, to be honest, it can stand for whatever you want it to. Let us explain a little history on how we got the name. The idea for SclObo came a long time ago in a dorm room far, far away when signing up for a random site. After filling in the password information, we got to that standard, "Are you a robot?" section of creating an account, and guess what the random sequence of letters was? You guessed it! "SclObo." We took to the name because it had a certain ring to it, a certain type of pizzazz. What could it mean? What could it stand for? It was up to us to decide. We could create our own meaning to a word that was seemingly undefined. This simple concept of defining our own meaning led us to where we are today. We here at Sclobo have prided ourselves on creating our own meaning, forging our own paths, and setting our own standards. As a bunch of gamers and nerds from all backgrounds, it was our time to set our own standards and tell our story the way we want to, without any previous labeling. We want who we are to shine through in all that we do. SclObo to us means individuality, happiness, peace, joy, community, and love. So we ask you the same question, what does SclObo mean to you?

Risks and challenges
Starting anything like this can be a challenge, and we are no different in that regard in what we will face on this journey. In order to mitigate as much risk as possible, we are working with the same suppliers we worked with to deliver our first run of Season 1. If we run into any delays we will always be sure to communicate them immediately.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
