The goal of this campaign is to raise the funds needed to produce a beautiful hardcover book collecting the first 13 issues of the Codex tabletop roleplaying game zine. The content for this book is 100% complete. We are raising money to cover the cost of printing. 

The book will be roughly 8.5"x11" hardcover. It will feature approximately 270 full-color pages on 120 gsm paper. We have prepared stretch goals that upgrade the book's quality even further. 

This is a mock-up of what the book will look like. The cover art is by the fabulous Claudia Cangini.

There are a number of pledge levels  to choose from. Most of these come with the basic rewards: a copy of of the Codex Volume 1 Hardcover Book, the Codex Volume 1 Digital Collection, and any Digital Stretch Goals unlocked throughout the campaign. Since this Kickstarter is being organized by The Gauntlet, we thought it would  be fun to include some pledge levels that additionally come with an online game session run for you by one of the amazing game runners in our community. 

What about shipping? 

Unless otherwise noted, shipping of physical rewards will be calculated and collected after the campaign ends via Backerkit. Estimated shipping within the United States is $7-10 USD. Estimated international shipping is $20-25 USD. 

What's included with each reward? 

$25 pledge - Keeper of the Phantasmagoric Library - This pledge level comes with the Codex Volume 1 Digital Collection and all Digital Stretch Goals unlocked during the campaign. The Codex Volume 1 Digital Collection includes the 13 PDF issues that make-up Volume 1. Those PDFs are complete and will be delivered to backers at the conclusion of the campaign. Digital Stretch Goals are expected to be delivered by May 2019. 

$35 pledge - Keeper of the Gauntlet - This is a special discounted pledge tier designed for Gauntlet Patreon supporters, but anyone can pledge at this level. It includes one copy of the Codex Volume 1 Hardcover Book and all Digital Stretch Goals unlocked during the campaign. Since most Gauntlet Patreon supporters already own the 13 PDFs that make up Volume 1, this pledge tier DOES NOT INCLUDE THE CODEX VOLUME 1 DIGITAL COLLECTION. If you want the Volume 1 PDFs, do not back at this level. This tier is limited to 400 backers. 

$50 pledge - Keeper of the Prismatic Tome - This is the standard pledge level that most backers will be interested in. It comes with one copy of the Codex Volume 1 Hardcover Book, the Codex Volume 1 Digital Collection, and all Digital Stretch Goals unlocked during the campaign.

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter project. Our team is very talented in terms of content creation but we have limited experience printing and shipping a physical book. Given that limited experience, we are working with the teams from Samjoko Publishing and Magpie Games. Both Samjoko and Magpie have successfully fulfilled numerous Kickstarter projects and will be helping us with the logistics of printing and shipping.

We don’t anticipate any problems with regards to the printing of the book. In addition to the aforementioned help from Samjoko and Magpie, the content of the book is complete. We will need to do some minor layout changes for a book format (the original zines were single page PDF), and we may have some additional stretch goal artwork going in, but those things should not delay the project in any significant way.

A greater challenge will be international shipping. We are going to do our best to keep international shipping costs as low as possible for backers, but it’s difficult to discern what that will look like several months down the road. Again, we are working with several experienced people to find the best solution for international shipping when the time comes in order to minimize this particular risk to backers.
