A bit over a year ago, my small group (Alluria Publishing) began producing a Pathfinder compatible RPG setting called "Cerulean Seas". It is an underwater campaign setting that is extremely detailed and well done. So well done, in fact, that we put far too much money into its production and did not make enough back to continue the project, despite winning awards and getting EXCELLENT reviews and much acclaim by those that did invest in it. This combined with many unfortunate and unrelated blows to some of the members of our group put us out of commission and into massive debt.
This kickstarter is to get Alluria Publishing back up and running well enough to begin producing products for the Cerulean Seas Campaign Setting again, starting with a few supplements that are already near completion including "Waves of Thought: Undersea Psionics" and "Indigo Ice: Guide to the Arctic Seas."
We are looking to raise $2000 to help with the production and initial print run of these upcoming products and put us back into business!
UPDATE: Originally, our goal was $2000, as this was simply what we needed to break even on our past projects and justify moving forward again. We never realized that our products were so well loved, however, as we reached our initial goal in a mere 2 days. With the remaining 4 weeks we intend to raise enough money to get ourselves in a position where this will not happen again and continue to bring you high quality 3rd party products for years to come. Cost of art, writing, layout, editing, printing, advertisement, and so on adds up VERY quickly. If we can reach our secondary goal of $10,000, this will ensure that we can hire the best artists, writers, and gaming specialists and really shake up the 3rd party gaming industry, much like we have done in the past by investing our own money.
