The many different worlds of magick are explored in the Grimoire Series, Pt. 1.

Illustrated by David Edgerly, artist behind Edgy Brothers' Dia de los Muertos campaign, these decks recall the times we spent as kids in the world of fantasy role-playing games, or RPG's, where the knowledge of powerful sorcerers was contained in ancient texts, or Grimoires. 

The Necromancy Court Cards portray the various creatures summoned and controlled by Necromancers, such as Ghouls, Liches, and Banshees.

Risks and challenges

We've learned a lot since completing our first project, "Dia de los Muertos Playing Cards" and continuing with this one. We originally launched two weeks ago with two decks instead of one, a different manufacturer (USPCC from our first project), and a much higher funding goal. Though we had a great start, it tapered off quickly. It's become clear that the landscape has changed and we needed to change with it; Backers have a lot more choices these days and Creators have to adjust to that reality. We've talked with Expert Playing Cards and by using them this time, we'll maintain a high quality and add even more embellishments while lowering costs, resulting in more affordable decks for the Backer. And by starting with just one deck and unlocking the second one as a stretch goal, our funding goal is significantly lower. This gives us the best possible chance of making this project a success while delivering the same pledge rewards.

We've also learned how important it is to stay engaged with our Backers, answering their questions and listening to their feedback so a project can reach its potential. We're going to stay active on the message boards and provide regular updates. And we want to hear from not just card collectors but hopefully hardcore RPG-ers as well, so that we can make these decks enjoyable for everyone.

We've also decided to keep our pledge tiers simple. Of course, Backers are still free to add to their pledges by purchasing as many Add Ons as they like - we just don't want the tiers becoming too complicated as that tends to complicate shipping, which slows things down. Faster shipping, happier Backers. Which brings us to...

...fulfillment. This is easily the most challenging aspect of a successful campaign. No matter how on schedule Creators are, the vendors' schedules are a different story. With Dia de los Muertos, we encountered delays from different manufacturers that were beyond our control. So, we've decided to be even more conservative this time and plan on completing fulfillment for this project in April. There is every chance we could fulfill earlier than that, but it's more realistic to plan on delays.
