About

 

A Destiny Forged: Adventurers Anthology is an art book that brings together the interpretations of the adventure fantasy genre from 65 artists across the globe.  

We invite you to join our adventuring party and travel forth through dozens of pages of the best fantasy illustrations from talented creators.

The book itself will be 8.5"x11", perfect bound, full color, and 83 pages.

Art by Alexandra and Misterguh.

In our campaign, there are rewards every step of the way!  

Here are the rewards we're offering!

Wallpaper by Nat, prints by Franny, Jay Bailey, Margaw, and Jasmine, keychains by Heath Wertz, Alexa Buck, and Aroona, anvil design by Ben Masi.

Backers will be able to choose which extras they want in accordance with their pledged tier after the campaign.

Why is it called an anthology?  

We believe that a picture is worth a thousand words, and that each illustration is a mere snapshot of a greater story in the artist’s mind. The goal was to bring together as many of the best artists we could to show the diversity of the fantasy adventure genre.  

What if you pass your goal?  

We would be eternally grateful for all the support we've received! As for where the money goes, it will be divided evenly among the artists. The original goal is based on the order of 500 books; however, if we have enough backers to pass that, then we have factored in an additional 250 book purchase and 500 book purchase financial markers so in that case the money would first go towards the purchase of more books and secondly to the artists.  

We also have several stretch goals! 

Below is a chart with our goals we want to reach to provide more goodies to our backers!

Check out our cool stretch goal rewards!

Stickers by Alexa Buck, pin by Aroona, patch by Jasmine.

Backers who pledge tiers that include the D20 will receive an additional D20/2 D20s & 4 D6s along with the original die, should we meet those stretch goals.

If we do manage to reach over $23,000, the funds will then go to the production of the book, such as heavier paper, embossed/spot glossed cover, hardcover, etc.

Expenses

To be more transparent with our backers and assure them that every penny is being spent appropriately, we have a graph showing all of our expenses and what portion of our goal they will take up.

Risks and challenges

This is our first kickstarter project and we have taken our time to make sure that we're as organized as possible. All images for the book as well as the extra merchandise are finished and formatted. We have experience with the production of prints, charms, pins and the like but printing a book is new territory. We will be working closely with Print Ninja to ensure that any hiccups down the line in the process of printing the book, if any, will be minimal and shared with our backers via updates along with our regular progress.
