About

Extract from the book Eye of Azathoth found in the Vatican Conclave library of Ancient Secrets on Exodus prime in the year 3535 of our lord who has forsaken us.

Before the great darkness came crawling 2525 and signalled the prelude and the great war in heaven when the “stars were right” as the ancient text and legends from Old Terra Prime called it. It was a happier time in space for mankind. Being a Martian meant you was a prisoner on mars and laboured all day long in some corporate mining project or working in some dangerous toxic manufacturing pit. If lucky you did your “Tour of Time” at a corporate service facility in the outer mining rim. A large realm rich with unusual and great new minerals with almost unbelievable properties. This was long before the Bloody Starchild and its offspring burned half the Milky Way galaxy. The time before the knowledge of other spices in the Great Void, before the Mars dragons awoke and ruined that dream and hundreds of years of colonisation, before the bloody remains of the ancients and the cursed church meddled with desires and knowledge not meant for mankind.

This was before the Vatican Enclave discovered the Exodus worlds and filled it with indentured labourers that worked to their deaths and damned us all to living hell!

Welcome to Creatures and the Crawling Chaos, welcome to the early years, the happy years.

The Creatures and the Crawling Chaos is a SciFi RPG setting meant to inspire and help you create your own horror adventures in space. It will also be a 28mm Sci Fi miniature line (resin) for the 1st to 3rd Human Empires during their rise and the following "War in Heaven" in space beyond our solar system.

This Kickstarter will focus on the years 2222 up to 2323. The Mars wars are over and Terra prime has reunited with its former colonies and some are even treated as equals. This time will later be called by historians as the First Human Empire (1st HE). 

You will be able to learn about the fumbling moves by mankind in the vast void and realize that perhaps there is monsters in the great black void after all, perhaps.

Salvage Marines

Our heroes from the introduction adventure. This is the sketches that our sculptor will work from so they are a work in progress.

The Salvage Marines became ”famous” after the 2121 Mars/Beowulf incident when the Brightly Yellow painted Terran Marine Rescue Services (TMRS) was to become publicly known as "Space Angels". TMRS Beowulf was greatly damaged when debris of an old wreckage hit the TMRS personel when they were trying to help a disabled shuttle with pilgrims that come to close to a wandering asteroid field (later investigation shows that it was a severed old freighter wreckage that hit the pilgrims) around Mars. It was a huge Holotv event on prime  time and when the damaged rescue vehicle with help of martian asteroid miners from the RedMax prison, Minor Mars penitentiary D block saved the pilgrims not many eyes were dry in martian/human space. It was this experience that spearheaded the need for a more robust emergency space response force and the Martian Marine Rescue Services (MMRS in red/orange paint schemes) was founded with the pardoned former prisoners. A by-product was the construction of the Saint Christopher Class Terran Rescue Vessel (TRV) which later became known as the MRV design because of the lessons learned there.

We have planned plenty of stretch goals for this campaign and as add ons in the Pledge Manager later on. In the early stages of the campaign the stretch goals come fairly close but when the numbers of backers is growing so will the gap between stretch goals, we will have no payed add ons during the kickstarter as we want our backers to be able to take a part of the increase of funds as well as the hype we hope to share with you. We will save the  addons for the pledge manager when we get a clearer picture of what our backers want.

300K SEK. Funded!

350K SEK. Free sculpted resin bases for all miniatures. 

500K SEK. Sculpted resin OUTCAST command bridge interior including 2 pilots in their seats. Free for all pledge levels that includes a physical version of the ships map except the Loyalist pledge level.

900K SEK. OUTCAST wepons armory room and supplies in resin. Free for all pledge levels that includes a physical version of the ships map except the Loyalist pledge level.  

1000K SEK. 4 more salvage marines and a drop pod in resin. Free for all pledge levels that include miniatures except the Loyalist pledge level.

1200k SEK. 4 members of the Colonial Police Force (CPF). Free for all pledge levels that include miniatures except the Loyalist pledge level.

1400K SEK. 10 colonists in armour (4 of these will be casualties). Free for all pledge levels that include miniatures except the Loyalist pledge level.

1800K SEK. 6 scientists in clothes, no armour. Free for all pledge levels that include miniatures except the Loyalist pledge level.

We don't have a shipping price in the rewards because with all the potential stretch goals it is impossible for us to guess what shipping will cost. Shipping will be charged via the pledge manager and all products will be shipped from Sweden.

In order to deliver in time and have control over the number of backers and the packaging, shipping and handling procedure and costs we had decided to only have an unlimited backer number the first 48 hours. After that we will have a limited number for each pledge type. There will be a pledge manager but in order to participate you need to make a pledge that includes pledge manager. 

As it is for now we will probably not have a late pledge since all the details with a pledge manager system isn't done yet. Depending which one we choose there might be different ways to get the products after the kickstarter but there will be a increase in price.  

Yes the bar is set high, very high compared to our  earlier projects, but known sculptists, designers and writers all appear to hold their breath for brexit. This means that we can have a dream team with dedicated people who are onboard for the next year doing amazing stuff.

Risks and challenges

We are not aware of any possible production delays for this campaign at the moment. We have worked with our talented sculptist in two previous kickstarters before and all the other contracted sculptists / designers come highly recommended by someone we worked with earlier. The greatest fear is shipping cost outside EU for the moment. Everything will be made in EU and shipped from within EU Customs Union. This is the main reason that NO shipping, packaging and handling is included. We will have a pledge manager that will run through february since we know the first salary after Christmas in january is usually spent on your own survival. So shipping and handling will be collected in february at the earliest. We don't have any plans for retail at the moment since it would require more work than we can afford with our current jobs. This is our hobby as well as yours but if hugely successful that may change.
