About this project
The Nanten is a jungle so hostile that to enter it willingly is considered suicide. When the world's greatest swordsman was sent there, he was meant to die. The question that hangs in the air is what would happen if he returned home?
We're about to find out.
Into the Nanten is the journal of Marceles na Tetrarch, a warrior currently exiled to the Nanten for a murder of passion. This Kickstarter is to keep his story going.
He goes in search of a man that he hates who was exiled there 20 years ago: Brin Salisir. It's rumored that Salisir went to discover a cult risen from the darkest dredges of humanity. What Marceles doesn't know is if those rumors are true.
What the heck is a "real-time fantasy blog?"
Each entry that Marceles writes in his journal posts in real time on intothenanten.com – if he writes in the evening, his entry goes live that evening (EST). If he’s running for his life, you don’t hear from him for a few days.
Are you new to Into the Nanten?
If you're new to the story, Journal 3 will be a fantastic place to pick it up!
If you haven’t read any yet and would like to get caught up, Journal 1 is available in ebook or paperback, and you can read both journals for free from the beginning at intothenanten.com/journal. This Kickstarter is intended to keep it going for one more journal (you can think of journals as TV seasons with daily episodes).
You have plenty of time to get caught up, and we are so excited to have you join if this is your first time entering the jungle. Journal 1 got us into the Nanten and Journal 2 has taken us to its very core. Journal 3 will bring the whole story full-circle, forcing Marceles to face the conspirators who put him out to die.
A huge part of the experience is following along day-by-day, though many people choose to binge a week or a month at a time. However you prefer to read the story is up to you - it will be there for you whenever you're ready.
If you do catch up, you'll have the pleasure of knowing that you're as far into the story as anyone. No one knows more than Marceles has shared to date - which means tomorrow brings whatever joys or trials tomorrow holds. (Usually trials)

Risks and challenges
We've already produced two full seasons so far without fail. We've also fulfilled all of these rewards before, so the only potential downside will be if one of our suppliers folds or just drops off the face of the earth.
It does look like we'll have to use a different binder this year for the leather-bound journal, but I've already sourced a few new options.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
