Hello brave adventurers! The Habitica team has been hard at work brainstorming new ways to bring the game into your daily life. This time, we’re bringing your beloved Habitica classes into the real world with RPG Class Pins!
We launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013 that funded HabitRPG, the game that later became the Habitica we know and love today. Since then, what started as a small personal project has grown immensely. Now we’re going back to our Kickstarter roots to experiment with expanding outside of the digital realm into physical goods. Habitica's incredible community has always been its strongest asset, so we're turning to you to help us get this project off the ground.
Have you ever dreamed of having the strength of the Warrior while tackling pesky chores? Or maybe the intelligence of a Mage to conquer even the trickiest of projects? Whichever class you roll, you can now display it in full, glorious HD anywhere you choose. A hat, a backpack or pencil bag, or maybe a nice display case for the avid collectors. Pick and choose whichever you're feeling and have fun showing off your badge of honor that represents your commitment to personal growth everyday!
Each hard enamel pin will be rose-gold plated with the Habitica logo stamped on the back. Each pin purchase also includes two rubber pin-backs and a matching backing card.
We did a small test run of the pins that we've since learned from. While there will be some minor changes, you can see how they turned out!
The In-Game goodies
The physical rewards aren’t all you’ll get! Just like our last Kickstarter, you’ll also receive exclusive in-game items based on how much you pledge. These rewards will be distributed to your Habitica account after the campaign is successfully funded and backer surveys are sent in.
The gear set above will also be animated! Small details may change from the images you see here in the process of animating it. We'll post updates as the animations are finalized. We also decided to split the Visor from the Helm to make it an eyewear item so you can pair it with any other headgear in Habitica. Have fun accessorizing!
Choose your backer tier based on the amount of pins you’d like to receive. When the campaign ends, we’ll send out a Kickstarter Backer Survey where you can choose exactly which pin(s) you’d like. When backing a tier that allows you to choose multiple pins, we'll allow you to pick multiple of the same pin if you so desire.
We’ll be adding new backer tiers if any stretch goals are unlocked. You can edit which tier you chose at any time while the campaign is ongoing, so if more pins unlock you can switch your pledge. You won’t be charged until the campaign ends and it’s successfully funded.
The four Basic Class Pins are just the beginning! If we raise above and beyond the amount to get this project started we’ll release more rewards to choose from. Check them out!

Risks and challenges
We're a team that's experienced with working together and have successfully ordered a small test run of pins in the past so the risks here are relatively small. As with anything that needs physical fulfillment, there are still a few issues we may run into during production. Small changes to the pin designs may be necessary if there are problems during the manufacturing process, delays on the manufacturer’s end could push back delivery date, or there may be defective pins that need to be re-ordered. If any of these happen, we'll keep you informed and do our best to get your rewards in your hands as soon as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
