About

It's a big, complicated, messy world out there. Imagine if it were filled with people who could destroy your city - with a sneeze. You would think that it would just get bigger, more complicated, and much much messier. Suprise! it doesn't. You still have to get up for work... traffic is still bad... you still need to deal with the boss, and grind through the work day (ugh!)... you still forget to stop and get buns for the burgers tonight, forcing you to order pizza - and strain your already stretched budget. 

 

Ordinary - just in a world with supers. Traffic is bad. Why? Because of a sinkhole from last night's conflict between good and evil. Your boss has a low-level super ability that lets him talk to his fish Richard. Remember how your favorite pizza place used to be called "Pie-nado"? It was forced to change the name after Captain Pienado threatened legal action for trademark infringement. Now it's just called "Justice Pies".

All in all, the world still goes around the sun. Life is hard, tedious, and sometimes a little scary. Not just scary for you - but for all those supers you see on tv... they all have the same life you do - more or less. That pizza girl that just dropped off your order? Her next stop is four blocks over at Electric Missy's house. She ordered pizza because her electro kinesis is on the fritz after a long day of heroism, and she is fed up with replacing her appliances.

This book is the first in a three book arc that explores both the super and mundane parts of the world, as we follow our heroes through their latest crises.

Now is your chance to help bring this world to life, and, if you want, become a part of it! The Candy Hangover will be professionally printed in full color, and packed full of content. 

For those of you just looking to try it out - every dollar helps. For those of you who want to add "Superhero" to your resume, we can provide that opportunity. We also have every level of participation in between. We are so thankful for this opportunity to bring our world to you, and promise to make this a great and intriguing experience from start to finish.

Thank you all,

The New Quest team.

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We have a great team working on this.

Alex is a prolific story teller and writer. He has designed full worlds and games, along with having been published before.

Josh has a great eye for detail in both writing and art and brings a large amount of printing experience. He is our most published writer on the team having self-published 3 other comics and promoting them around the Denver scene.

Jerrod is an amazing artist with a huge body of work. By day he is a graphic designer with over 10 years of experience in the art and science of visual communication.

The biggest problem that most first time creators face is just finishing the books. Good news everybody, the book is done. Well, the script and roughs are already completed, we are working on ink and color now to help ensure a true completion on time.

The second most common problem is with the printing. That's where Josh saves the day. We are working with 3 different printers to get quotes and track their availability. This way even if we have more backers than we thought we are still prepared to handle the demands and get the books out in a reasonable timeframe.

The third most common problem is the one that we are concerned with the most, Life complications. As we talked about before life is a messy place to be. Each person on the team has other responsibilities that must also be taken care of, be it children, family or job we all have to find that balance.

We are dedicated to finishing this project. Earth Tau was conceived on July 4th, 2015 and Alex and Josh have been working on it ever since. The Candy Hangover portion came along after a year of world building and Jerrod has been involved for most of a year. Life will always be messy but that has not stopped us yet and we will not relent before the finish line.

    Side Kick, Underling, or 9-5

    Hero:
    Now that we have your basic training out of the way it's time to move you into your apprenticeship. You will have an audition for a Side Kick position with several well established and reputable heroes. Your actions and behavior will be closely monitored and will also reflect on your hero as well as the guild at large. Rember you can't go home a hero if you don't go home. Stay safe.

    Villan:
    Enough of this saving the world junk. You look like the type of go getter that wants in on where the real power is. Why get tied up with all those morals. It's simple, get rich, have a great time and live how you want. Do what ever you want. That's freedom baby.

    Personnel:
    So the hero thing not your cup of tea, but you also don't want to plot the end of the world as you stroke your mustache? Why not just do it on your own, entrepreneur style? Be your own boss. Use your powers as you see fit to help people around you. Or at least pick up a nice security job and get to go home at night without making an arch-enemy.

    A 30+ page physical copy of our first book. Also included will be a 7x11 print of alternate cover art. You chose your side: Hero, Villan, or Personnel.

    Super Hero, Super Villon, or Super 1099

    Hero:
    It's time to save the world, but first, you must defeat a team up of your greatest rogues gallery that's bent on defeating and unmasking you on national television, and it's only Tuesday

    Villan:
    Ugg, heroes, am I right? Make sure to brush up on that monologue for when those silly spandex supers swoop in to save the day only to fall into your next devilishly disturbing dastardly deed. Mahaha Mahahaha Mahahahahaha.

    Personnel:
    Hmmm, the senator is calling. He must need protection that doesn't ask questions. Or maybe they need some one to do an extraction in a foreign country. Not that you really care as long as the check clears. You can give him a call back once you have finished your motto.

    Your name will go down in the history books, or at least in the history of our books. Because of you, we are able to bring this world to life and we can only begin to express our gratitude for that. So in advance thank you.

    You will also get a full sized poster of one of the alternate covers. Posters will be 27x41 full color and drawn with incredible detail ready to frame or hang. They're a great way to really experience the art and skill put in to creating the people that make up Earth Tau.

    World Class

    Well, the world is saved once more thanks to your efforts. Let's face it if you always save the day with out any real conflict it starts to get boring. Maybe, it's time for that side kick the guild is always pushing on you. You know some one that you can train and mold. Do your part to help make sure that the next generation is prepared. Also if they got kidnapped or you found out they were a double agent sent by your worst enemy it would help break up the monotony of catching airplanes.
    That sounds like a lot of drama, how about a dog, but like a super dog, that has a cape. People love dogs.

    This is the full package you would get the PDF, signed trade paper back, name in credits, all 3 posters, and our eternal thanks. You truly are our hero.
