About

This is Intelligence Check a comic series created by Harry Clabon which adapts the stories told in Dungeons and Dragons Games as submitted by the audience.  This Kickstarter aims to produce a printed collection of four of these stories together in physical book form. 

 With popular DnD shows such as Critical Role and The Adventure Zone receiving graphic novel adaptations, I aim with this project to tell the stories of the average DnD group and show that it’s not just the professionals who leave the table with crazy stories. The stories told in this comic series focus on the crazy plans and ingenuity of each and every adventuring party and shows the crazy lengths that DnD can be pushed to. 

Our first story features a tale from one of my own games, where 3 typical party members attempt a task as simple as hiding from a group of goblins. In the sort of mess up that’s characteristic of these games however things quickly go wrong and hilarity ensues.

Story two features the wildly popular community favourite tale of Hortimer the fat wizard and how, through genius planning and imagination managed to banish three incredibly powerful foes to the astral plane and both disarm and restrain the world's most powerful sorcerer, all by himself.

These two stories are both already online and free to read as an example of the sort of story, and quality, you can expect from this book The third story will be chosen and revealed later in the Kickstarter’s run and the fourth story will be chosen from a selection by the backers upon completion of the Kickstarter. 

The Kickstarter will fund an initial print run of two hundred books as well as cover shipping costs. Additional funds will go towards further print runs as well as helping fund future volumes and allowing the series to grow and continue. The book isn’t the only reward backers will get from the Kickstarter though. At the lowest level backers will get a PDF version of the book. 

As the backers donation increases they will also receive rewards such as; DnD themed stickers which have been custom made for this campaign, an A5 print of the front cover design, a DnD character sheet custom made by me with an extra space for an illustration of a players character and a more streamlined skill checks layout, a free drawing of a character of their choice, a free drawing of an entire adventuring party, and, at the highest donor level, their own short story from their game illustrated by me in digital graphic novel form.

This book isn’t just for people who are already interested in DnD either! The way these stories are illustrated requires the reader to not need any previous knowledge about how the game is played. The idea is that this book will work as a great starting point for educating people about what this game is really like and hopefully encourage them to looking into playing it in the future, and if not then it’s still enjoyable as a piece of fantasy comics.
