Cthulhu Christmas Cards

£4,524

Fully funded!! Thus here is the path to madness henceforth...

 Thanks all {;.;}

 

 

As the evenings draw in and the seasons turn towards the end of the year, looming on the horizon is the ghost of Christmas future. We thought that this year we’d like to send an assortment of Mythos themed Christmas Cards to the special (and not so special) people in our lives. Then we thought; let’s print them up and let others send these blasphemous greetings, too. Then we remembered we live in a market-based economy and we need a bunch of monies to do just that. Then we thought; hey we found a bunch of like-minded crazy-but-fun peoples on the Internets last year – let ask them if they want to go in and help us print off these amazing designs!

Ah, Christmas! Whether for you it is a time for celebration with friends and family or a bah humbug chore to be endured, what we can all agree on this festive season is the inevitability of death. So with the nameless void that awaits us all in mind, we thought what better way to blow a raspberry at oblivion than with humorous images and text printed on pulped dead tree! Our crack team of artists have created six amazing designs and we’re champing at the bit to click ‘send’ and whizz them off to the printers. That’s where you fellow cultists come in; with your support we can make this modest yet not-modest goal of eldritch greetings cards flying through the post a reality.   

Without further ado and with the discordant blaring of Erich Zahn’s Christmas Carols playing on the jukebox, let us show you what we’ve conjured up with nameless rites...

 

 

 

 

 

Plus there are forbidden mind-bending designs that stretch goals will unlock…. 

If the project is successfully backed then we’ll be able to print off these six designs into boxes of 12 cards – two of each per box. We’ll also be composing Mythos themed verses of seasonal joy for each design (which you can get involved in composing, see tiers!) plus there will be a hidden puzzle that runs over all six designs (we’re game creators after all!) for you to enjoy. 

Let us introduce you to the team creating this unholy monstrosity of a project; 

The art-shoggoths for this project, toiling in an unlit pit of eternity and struggling to not spill all the precious paint are two talent yet untamed figures of Stuart Griffin and Dylan Shipley. Stuart has impeccable art credentials from working on Magic: The Gathering to creating all the art for the award winning video game Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land. Dylan is a veteran artist and in a delicious irony mostly works on cute kids animations and games. Ha! Together they create the unholy six pieces you see above. 

Master of dark rites is Nina Adams – distantly related to Morticia Adams – she successfully produced our last fully delivered Kickstarter so your monies are in capable claws. Finally, Tomas Rawlings is the unholy scribe penning the text via a gore-flecked quill in a chamber only lit by Christmas sparkly lights. He’s a lifelong Cthulhu fan and was the creator of The Dark Mirror monograph for Chaosium and the designer of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land.

Risks and challenges

Unlike the summoning of Nyarlathotep, this is a fairly straightforward project to deliver once we’re backed. We’re based in Bristol, England. The printers we’ve identified for speedy yet quality work are based not far from us. We’re next door to a helpful and friendly post office, used to us posting off backer rewards. We’ve done the designs (but there might be cool new ones for stretch goals! Shh!)

So this is a low risk project we’re totally confident in delivering. We’ve fully delivered one Kickstarter and been a key part of two games fully delivered from Steam’s early access. We’re running it on these dates to give the post plenty of time to work as it should (as that’s the only factor we don’t control here…) Any questions or problems and we’ll get back asap!

    I’d like to see this project be birthed under a gibbous moon. However I don’t want the dead trees on my conscience, so here take my cash.
