Video Update!

Posted by wfincher (Creator)

Hello again! 

The cards are a huge undertaking for me, with the creation process and production costs so this is something I am focused on to help Maelorum grow. It gives you a great product, and it gets me closer to printing more books, so I can continue creating Maelorum. Add-on $15.00 to accumulate cards beyond the free 15 cards as we hit stretch goals!

Special Cards for add-on:

I am narrowing down my quest to get affordable foil stamped cards, or even metallic inked cards. (It's a big job getting these quotes and very time consuming.) 

When these collector's cards become available, you'll not only get the card, but also receive it's FULL creation video like I have posted here, and watch me create the cards!

Available Soon: Lesser Fire Elemental:

This special monster card will feature either foil stamping or metallic ink process, to highight the primordial flames and make this card really stand out.

The Prequel:

ADD IT ON NOW FOR $20.00! (15.00 +5.00 shipping)

(overseas shipping add $10.00)

This 20 page add-on will be written and illustrated by myself when the project hits it's 15k stretch goal. I have some great concepts just waiting to be penned down. This 8.5 x 5.5 printed booklet will be a high value addition to your Gamebook collection, and will fit perfectly next to Volume One. I've posted a concept for the cover. This will ship later, most likely in the fall, so please understand I need to ask for some shipping costs.

      Zacky, if you prefer that, it's no problem. Thanks for your support!

      Sorry, I got misunderstood because someone was asking for the cards which also has a stand-alone tier of $20. So I shall pay $30 for the prequel.

      However, would you please consider the option of sending all merch altogether in November as an alternative? Thanks!

    3. Zacky Chun-pong Leung

      If I am pledging a printed book outside USA, shall I still add $15 to my pledge, or $25 (int'l shipping not waived)?

      In addition, would it be possible for you to send the prequel with the printed book (and add-ons) together as one package? Since I had already had the e-book edition, I don't mind having the merch shipped later, but just want to minimize the shipping cost.

      Awesome! Just added $15 to my pledge. Thanks, Will!

      Robert, the prequel can't be bound into a hardcover, it would have to be significantly longer. It will be printed as a booklet with a thick card-stock glossy cover.

    6. wfincher 5-time creator on

      Troy, the reward is a $20.00 level when purchased as a stand alone tier. If you pledged for any tier that has a printed book then you can add it on for $15.00, surveys will be sent asking everyone to clarify all their add-ons.

      I don't see a new reward level to select for these cards... Do I just add $15 to my current pledge and you will know to send me the cards?

    8. Robert Gaspar on

      Will the prequel be hardcover to match those who opted for the hardcover?

    9. wfincher 5-time creator on

      @afbeer 100% in time all will be revealed!

      Will there be a PDF of the prequel available with pledge levels or as an add-on?

    11. wfincher 5-time creator on

      Steve, it will be both a Novella with game material / challenges / original illustrations.

    12. SE Weaver

      @wfincher, is the prequel a novella or will it include more crunchy game material?

    13. wfincher 5-time creator on

      Gamehoarder...whaaa? It will take me *at least* a month of my life to create this. Printing things is expensive, shipping is expensive! My talent, and time is valuable just like yours! For the cost of a modern magazine, this original work is a steal. My stuff is very high quality, ask anyone. Plus, don't we need to raise funds to get more books? I need to donate books to libraries, get kids back into reading, keep this genre alive, this is what it's really about!


      should be free for $50 pledges and up


      15 bucks for 20 pages? dafaq?
