Chronicle Cards - Universal RPG Tools

AU$ 6,052

97

Our aim is to create high quality, accessible tools for players of any RPG system.

Whether you're a GM, DM, Storyteller, or anything in between, our card decks have something to offer you. They are perfect for new creators to help develop their world, as well as being a terrific resource and inspiration for experienced players.

Chronicle Card decks are universal, and can be introduced into any session instantly.

They are compact, quick and easy to use - here are just a few examples:

  • Create a new character, creature, event, or item in seconds - perfect for when your group catches you by surprise.
  • Add extra depth to any setting, and keep your players guessing.
  • Develop an extra dimension to player experiences - no encounter will be the same.
  • Draw them during the game to add suspense (or to fill time as your group inevitably goes off the rails).
  • Draw them ahead of time during the preparation of an encounter or campaign to get your creative juices flowing.
  • Save time rolling on reference tables or flipping across multiple pages and books.

Backer experience and enjoyment is our priority throughout this project. 

With our low Funding Goal and inexpensive pledges, we feel that it is more important for us to be able to deliver a product that we believe in rather than focusing on profit.

Weekly updates for backers, with behind the scenes insight as to what we are currently working on.

We will be focusing upon new decks, concept art and anything else we feel is interesting or important to you!

It is our future aim to produce multiple decks covering a wide range of theme concepts and ideas.

For example:

Item Qualities: These are a selection of properties that can be applied to any type of equipment with the potential to create some truly awe inspiring effects.

Mishaps: With your players, things might always seem to go wrong. But how wrong?

Personalities 2, Events 2, and so on!

For any enquiries we can be reached via Kickstarter, Facebook (@chroniclecards) or email to ask@chronicle.cards 

Risks and challenges

Our priority is to ensure that backers receive their pledges in a timely manner, and that they are satisfied with the overall product!

With this in mind, please contact us directly via Kickstarter with any questions you might have - we are happy to help.

We aim to have all four original four decks available to ship in March 2019, and do not perceive any reason that this will change. Pending funding timelines we can also work to produce decks sooner which may allow for January or February release.

Further decks or pledges that may arise may take longer however timeframes will be communicated to backers at first instance.

Our previous experience in small business and organisational management lends itself to this project, and we have a variety of control and reporting methods to ensure things remain on schedule.

Having already developed strong relationships with our artists and manufacturers, we are able to ensure that production and delivery will consistently remain at a high standard. We have also built in redundancy by having alternate contacts should an issue arise.
