Wow - we are hours away and have just hit over 600 Backers for our adventure! Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us along the way - it has been such a positive experience. We are planning some more cool things to share with you, but right now we are concentrating on fulfilment. Duncan will be heading to China to supervise the process and make sure we 'deliver' to you as promised in November!
We have worked with Crowd Control to offer an add-on option when the Campaign is finalised by Kickstarter (it takes two weeks apparently).
This will also allow us to open an online store in the next few weeks so we can make some of our cool things available to you. So if you missed out, or are interested, head on over to our store at:
Wiliam & Duncan
We are celebrating by upgrading all metal dice to our Arcania MMXVIII Limited edition set - featuring a cartoon by Travis Hanson!
Of course the limited edition dice will be available as an add-on at all pledge levels (including $1) when we finalise the Kickstarter!
- See below for more information
WOW - we made it in 10 days! Thank you everyone!!
We also have listened to you and worked out some Stretch Goals - see below.
Stretch Goal 1 - UNLOCKED!!
Stretch Goal 2 is live now - see below!!
We are an Australian family venture made up of a father and son team who have been playing D&D for most of our lives. We've written some 5th edition content for online platforms and have put together a unique, fun and exciting collection of cool stuff for role players everywhere!
Update III - Whilst we are Aussies, we are shipping direct to you from China, so check out our shipping costs - you might just be surprised!
What have we put together?
We love playing our favourite role playing game and over the years have put together accessories and cool stuff to make the game that little bit more fun! Coins, gems, chests, and of course dice! This is the core to our Level up collections - fun stuff. We have also produced a 5th edition character booklet designed to keep your character's critical information, maps, notes and adventures all in one place. When we were designing the chest, we thought - why not also put a dice tray in (mostly because we often spend ages under the table looking for that lost die...).
We have packaged four collections for you, two have plastic coins and dice and the other two have Arcanian forged metal dice and coins! All the coins are a limited edition (2018) design. Within each type you have a choice as to how much dice and coin you want (or need!) - you can never have too much!
Our first reward is the Arcania Explorer's Pack priced at US$59 - all our rewards are priced in Australian Dollars in accordance with Kickstarter's rules, however as a guide to our US customers - you won't pay more than the price detailed below!
Sometimes, it is just smarter adventuring to have more coin and good luck (rolling advantage!) with you, and our Diplomat's pack has both!
There isn't anything as sweet as the clink of gold pieces, and if that calls you, then the Arcania Dungeoneer's Pack is for you! Arcanian forged limited edition metal coins and dice make this the ultimate tabletop collection!
And lastly, if you are at the top of your game, then our Master's pack is designed for you. Twice the coin, gems and dice for the serious gamer at your table.
You asked for less dice (apparently some of you have too many - if that's even possible), and more coins - so we've launched the Thieves' Reprieve Pack!
So we get it, you don't need any more dice and you use a credit card (or roll nat 20 on intimidation)... But still need something to store all that loot from last month's expedition....
A closer look at the collection
Our chest is crafted to not only hold all your gaming essentials, but to look awesome as well. We have worked to also include a dice tray that fits neatly inside the chest and helps keep those rogue dice rolls in check!
The Arcanian wooden chest
Our chest is constructed from wood and measures 24cm x 15cm x12cm (inches: 9.4" x 5.9" x 4.7") and has a simple metal latch for the lid.
Our dice tray
Constructed from the same material as the chest and lined with felt, the dice tray measures 20.6cm x 13.5cm x 3.5cm (inches: 8.1" x 5.3" x 1.4")
Our coins and gems
We have designed gold, silver and copper pieces. The coins are forged in either high quality plastic or metal. The gold and silver coins have a diameter of 3cm (1.18") and are 2.5mm thick (.01"). The copper piece is 2.5cm in diameter and 2mm thick ( .98" and .08").
UPDATE IV - Coin designs released!
Our gem collection includes a selection of 10 (or 20 if you level it up!) plastic gem pieces worth hundreds of GP! What an easy way to carry around your wealth and keep some encumbrance spare for that awesome looking +1 sword...?
Our dice collections are similarly either plastic or metal. Each set consists of the standard 7 dice: d20 d12 d10 d100 d8 d6 d4.
Metal forged dice
The metal dice come in a tin with foam inlay to keep them from rattling around.
We are upgrading all metal dice to our Arcania MMXVIII Limited edition set - featuring a cartoon by Travis Hanson!
If your Reward set includes metal dice - then this unique, custom set with a full colour print of the cartoon by Travis Hanson is yours!
If you'd like to get this in addition to anything else - then when we send out our survey you can add a set on!
The plastic dice set comes in a draw string felt bag for easy storage.
(note actual final shipped plastic dice may differ from images displayed - they will be a marble effect as below)
5th edition character sheets
We have commissioned a character sheet design that places all the essential information on the front page, in a handy 20cm x 13cm sized booklet with 80 pages. (inches 7.8" x 5.1"). The remainder of the journal has dot grid pages so you can either write up notes, journals or simply map that dungeon!
Update IV - we will provide all backers with access to a PDF of the character sheets.
The Explorer's and Diplomat Collection
The Dungeoneer and Master Collection
We have completed the quest in just 10 days and we have 25 more to go!
It looks like we all are levelled up and ready for the next adventure! Well, better pack some provisions, extra arrows and of course - a Healing Potion!!! We have brought forward some of our items from our next collection as a thank you - and the first one is a common healing potion (2d4).
We figure we came this far in 10 days, so lets see if we can accomplish the same in 10 more! If we finish this quest then everyone who has pledged for a physical reward will find one of these in their Chest of Holding
Stretch Goal 2 - $77,000 AUD
We've got the potions, we've got the loot - now we just need a couple of scrolls, just in case!
We will include a couple of our scrolls - (A5 sized) in every Reward level!
We have worked hard with our suppliers and manufacturers to ensure a high standard of product for our collections. We have identified alternate suppliers or manufacturers for all our items and have a high confidence of delivering on our promise. There may be some slight differences between the products displayed here and the final collection delivered to you.
We have examined a variety of logistic solutions and the most economical is for us to curate the collections in China and ship directly to you. This, in some cases, is cheaper than shipping across the continental US! We have passed our savings on to you through generous subsidies against the actual shipping costs - so you will note that our shipping is quiet reasonable for a product this size and weight.

Risks and challenges
We have worked extensively with our suppliers to ensure we have not only the level of quality you and we demand, but the stability in pricing so we can successfully deliver this project. We have worked with a China based logistics company to centrally ship all out orders directly to our backers.
Importantly, we have tested and used every item in our own games, and know that you will not only enjoy the quality and fun of our products, but will take your table to the next level with Arcania Adventure coolness!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
