Presenting our third annual Adventures in the Arcane. This year’s theme is the Cthulhu Mythos. Our Cthulhu Edition features seven thrilling stories, including both new characters and old favorites like Captain Gideon Argo and the Wolf of the Southern Woods.
They walked the earth in times forgotten—Elder Gods and cosmic horrors from beyond the heavens. Ancient, malevolent creatures, their names still echo through the ages in tales by the great pulp authors such as H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, and August Derleth.
Now new writers take up the arcane narrative, as the battle against the Outer Darkness rages anew. Explore seven original tales inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos, including the return of beloved characters like Jester, the Wolf of the Southern Woods, and Captain Gideon Argo in a novella-length struggle against “The Blood Beast from Beyond.”

While the purpose of this Kickstarter is to produce our third volume of Adventures in the Arcane, it just wouldn't be a Kickstarter without some fun and unique rewards!
When you choose our "Wannabe Cultist" tier, our resident artist, Jayson Kretzer (Creator of the Wannabe Heroes Webcomic & comic Series) will draw an original black-and-white inked sketch of you as a Cthulhian cultist.
For the completionists, you can get all three volumes of Adventures in the Arcane in our Collection tier. This beautiful three-piece set is a great addition to your book shelf!
There are plenty more tiers to choose from, just check out the sidebar and let us know if you have any questions!
You can add additional copies of any of our previous anthologies to your pledge level by simply choosing the item(s) you would like and then following the instructions below to add to your pledge. All add-ons require your base pledge to be at the $15 tier and above. Follow the link below for instructions for adding add-ons:
1) Once you've made a pledge, then press the 'Manage Your Pledge' Button. If you have not pledged yet, it will say 'Back this Project'.
2) Increase your pledge in the 'Pledge Amount' box by the total of the add-ons you want to add.
3) After the Kickstarter campaign ends, you will receive a survey that will allow you to explain how you would like the add-on money to be assigned.
