Hey there Kickstarter! It's Tro and Eyo again with our fourth Littlest Lovecraft book - this time it’s a three short story collection creatively called The Horror Collection. It will contain our adaptations of "Pickman's Model", "The Haunter of the Dark", and "The Whisperer in Darkness". As always, it will be a full color, fully illustrated book, written in verse, and the same length as the previous books at 64 pages long. We're knocking off a few of our traditional stretch goals this time and offering an e-book to all pledged tiers off the bat, and starting our books off in matte hardcover because by this point they just have to match (hehehe).
Here are some examples of some of the new art :D
And our previous books (with some of our previous Kickstarter goodies):
We've got stuff for our backers! Books, prints, coins, t-shirts, and more! Here's a breakdown of what comes with each tier (international backers PLEASE read the next section):
We've also got add-ons to go with our base tiers! Add-ons are available at any pledged tier EXCEPT the eBook only tier (DIGITAL DISCOVERER).
The Pickman's Model image is on Black and the Mi-go is available on Chocolate Brown and Red. Shirts are available in Men's sizes S-5XL, Women's sizes XS-3XL, and Youth sizes YXS-XL. They're printed on Gildan G200 shirts - here's a size chart for those unfamiliar with US sizing.
Here's the mock-up of our new tumblers! They're heavy base 11oz glass tumblers with a satin frosted image of Nyarlathotep on the front!
Here are our previous tumblers - Dagon, Cthulhu, and Yog-Sothoth - also available as add-ons!
Dice & Coins!
This time we've got the Shining Trapezohedron in gold on gorgeous red dice!
We’ve also got gold Elder Sign, purple Necronomicon Gate Sigil, and green Tentacle dice from our previous projects available.
Here’s the mock-up (we'll update with the proof as soon as it's ready) for the new coins featuring Nyarlathotep! These will be 1.75" in a copper finish!
Our previous coins with Dagon in gold, Yog-Sothoth in silver, and Cthulhu in brass are also available!
This is an example of our booklets, short 8-12 page illustrated booklets with short stories and poems by Tro and our backers! The new one will be called Stories to Tell in the Dark! Also available are our previous two - All About Cows (as seen here), and the EOD Primer: A Guide to Knowing & Understanding the Order.
This is the design for our transfer stickers - they will be 3" transfer stickers in WHITE.
How to Add On Add-Ons!
Just add the total for all of your Add-Ons to the base rate for the tier you've selected with the Manage Your Pledge button and note it in the survey that we will send you after the end of the campaign. You may wish to make a note to yourself on your pledge to remind you what you ordered! Easy as that! Feel free to PM us if you have any questions!
This section is for our International backers (US backers have shipping included).
So as many of you know, and if you don't head's up, the cost of international shipping went WAY up this year and they changed the way weight vs cost gets broken down. Shipping rates used to go up in quarter pound increments, but now they go up in whole pounds so it jumps a LOT and adds up REALLY FAST. We've done what we can to defray some of those costs for our international backers - we minus out the cost we'd be paying for US shipping already, and then just eat some of the cost because holy crap it's high. Shipping to Canada IS cheaper than the rest of the world and our costs do reflect that.
BUT it's still CRAPPY EXPENSIVE and since small weight differences don't make a difference anymore, we have removed the international pricing from our smaller add-ons like the dice and coins (and the Primer if we unlock it) so International backers and US backers will pay the same cost for those. We will also be including a FREE PAIR OF DICE to all international backers pledging for a physical copy of the book as an apology for the extra shipping costs, so please take that into account if you are doing add-ons.
We love stretch goals because we love free stuff (really, who doesn't?) so play along with us \o/
For those of you familiar with our previous campaigns, we DID do away with a few goals because you know we were totally going to do them anyway >.>
Obviously, bad things can happen and so can delays (as we've unfortunately found out, though fortunately just a few months for us...) but we think we've got a good handle on our stuff and we're having fun so bear with us :D Barring unmitigated disaster and, oh, a volcano blowing up or something, we'll get you your goodies!
