We hit our final stretch goal last night, and with that, Witch+Craft will be as good as we can possibly make it. But that doesn't mean we don't have big plans! With the remaining campaign days ahead of us, we're looking at ways to make the book production go more smoothly, additional pay raises for our amazing artists, and even a Faerie Fire reprint--which has been selling much faster than we ever could have dreamed! Stay tuned for updates on those goals, so you can know exactly when your incredible enthusiasm helped make them a reality.
For now, we'd like to turn our gaze back to Cape Verdigris, and introduce the next setting in our book:
Cascade is the beachside town (and resort), nestled into the deep green bay west of Silverstruck. Known best for its contributions to the Living Arts, Cascade is also home to a vibrant festival culture.
Folks gather from around the world to partake in Cascade's famous culinary delights, or to get their hair done in the latest, most expressive fashions. The frequent festivals and celebrations have naturally attracted a pilgrimage of artists, playwrights, and draftspeople, who commune in Cascade's various speakeasies and cafes to collaborate on larger-than-life projects.
Cascade is being brought to life by Nicole Gustafsson, whose brilliant colours are certain to make Cascade as vibrant as we've imagined it.
The spiritual leader of Cascade is Bellis Wunderplat (illustrated by Yvo Cisneros), a genderqueer halfling noble who inherited Cascade and turned it into the centre of culture you see today. Bellis is an avid patron of the arts (and they dabble in just about everything themselves). They're responsible enough to see to Cascade’s civil cooperation with the other settlements in Cape Verdigris, and to avoid completely misusing the town funds--but otherwise they run a pretty loose operation.
