A warm welcome to adventurers and dungeon masters alike to our second Kickstarter project, Campaign Medals! 

A collection of resin and metal medals inspired heavily by fan favourite 5E adventures. These collectable medals are the perfect accessory to your RPG experience. We want to bring the atmosphere of your campaigns in to a displayable and playable medal to share, show and remember your achievements with your fellow party members. 

The Campaign Medals have been lovingly designed and crafted for you to bring to your tabletop game or collection! Gift them out at the end of a hard fought campaign, display them proudly on your desk or simply surprise your DM with a gift of heroic gratitude. Personally I like to use them to throw at my players when they mess up my masterful story plots!

Either way, we want these medals to supplement your gaming experience. Bringing reward, excitement and a little personal memento for the great (or horrific if Sam DMs) times you have shared around the table together. 

We wanted to have a large range of styles and character to these Campaign Medals so they really emit the atmosphere and feeling of your adventures. We took our inspiration from a selection of the wildly popular 5e adventures. Now, we have not done all of them to start (maybe we can reach some more in the stretch goals) but we have hit on a few fan favourites and iconic themes. 

Whatever your plans are with these medals, we hope it reminds you and everyone at your table of the fantastic adventures you have all had together.  

What if I don't play the 5e pre-written adventure modules? Do not worry friend, we have something for you. 

Alongside our Campaign Medals we have worked with a wide range of talent in the RPG community to bring you an original supplement created just for this Kickstarter "The Binding Stones" and it will be FREE for every pledge! 

This supplement will take the Campaign Medals and turn them into Binding Stones. These stones will come with full background, magic item stats, history, people, places and adventure hooks for players to find these mystical items. It will put the Campaign Medals at the heart of your adventures! 

This supplement can be incorporated into your home games and is designed for all party levels. 

Written by Chris Walz - The creator of The Midnight Revelry, An Ogre and His Cake, The Call of Atropus, Rising Sands and many more!

As we like to keep things simple at Ancient Lair we have two main pledge levels. One for the resin and one for the metal Campaign Medals. 

So how does this work? Pledge on the either of these levels and multiply your pledge by the number of Campaign Medals you want. 

Examples:

  • 1x metal(£15) and 1x resin(£10) would be a pledge of £25.  
  • 2x metal(£30) would be a pledge of £30. 
  • 5x metal (£75) and 5x resin(£50) would be a pledge of £125.

We will be using a Backerkit pledge manager to select your Campaign Medals styles, finishes and apply postage after the project has finished. 

You will be able to purchase more medals including any of the unlocked stretch goals in the Backerkit. 

We also have two limited special pledge levels.

Design your own Campaign Medal!

If you have ever wanted to immortalise your RPG world into a medal then here is your chance!

We have 5 limited pledges for people who want to design your own collectors piece.

Want a metal map, a factions symbol, adventurers party emblem or even the bad guys face? We will work with you to create your vision into a Campaign Medal.

Start with working with us to define your Medal and get a clear vision of what you want to create. We will then pass it on to our art team to create some concept art where we will start to refine your medal and get the perfect design.

It's then off to the forges for your medal to be cast in molten metal!

You will receive 10 resin and metal versions of your own design to proudly share and display.

We will continue to hold the design in our store so others can enjoy your creation.

We are working with a fulfilment company here in the UK to make the shipping costs as low as possible. Below you will find the maximum costs of delivery that will be applied on Backerkit after the Kickstarter. 

We are happy to confirm that no backers will have to pay tax on delivery. 

In order to get the best prices we are working out the USA and Canada shipping per item.

Risks and challenges

Luckily the master craftsmen here at Ancient Lair have been hard at work and already produced a number of final product cast!

Due to this all of the sculpting, printing, moulds and packaging are ready to go! All we need are the final number of units.

The only risk this poses is the delivery timeline estimates being off if this project is more successful than anticipated. So depending on the volume you might be waiting a little longer for your Campaign Medals but I can assure you we will get them to your doorstep as soon as possible.
