What IS Dragon Scale?
Dragon Scale is a book and playing cards that feature dragons of many sizes (i.e. scales... get it?).
The original Dragon Scale projects funded very successfully a few years ago. Since then I've done a number of other projects and my newer fans/backers are now requesting Dragon Scale decks (but I don't have any left of the original 300-400 deck print runs!). Now I am happy to offer these special limited editions of the dragon scale decks as well as the new Art Collectors Cards.
If you want to customize your reward set (get extra decks, books and so forth) please message the project creator and she will help you design a custom pledge.
Special Edition Decks
There are three different deck designs (click for full previews of the cards):
The Universe deck is first if we make our $1000 funding goal. The other decks unlock at $2300 and $3300 (reward tiers will be added as they unlock):
Deck Details: the special edition decks are standard poker deck size cards printed on 310 GSM linen stock. They come in metal tins (artwork is printed directly on the tin) and stretch goals unlock special variant cards that make the decks even more unique. A label inside the top cover of the tin lists the number of the deck is hand signed by the artist.
Between 100 and 300 of each special edition deck will be printed (depending on how many backers the project gets).
Limited Art Collectors Cards
24 different extra large 3.5" x 5.75" cards that come in a special signed and numbered tuck box. The tuck boxes can hold up to 50 cards so there is room for any variants or additional sets we unlock (see stretch goals)! Each card features large artwork on the front with information about the dragon(s) on the back. No more than 300 sets will be printed. NOW UNLOCKED: Backers can expand their sets to 48 different cards by adding $12 to their pledge!
The mini deck is 1.75" x 2.5" in size. It features close-ups of the dragons.
Book with Bookmark(s)
The book is a 200 page 6x9 inch hardcover featuring over 200 dragons organized by size. It comes with the ink dragon bookmark and up to three extra bookmarks (they unlock as stretch goals). All books will be signed.
We have unlocked a total of 6 bookmarks (four of which are included for free if you are getting the book).
- You can add on bookmarks for $1 each (your choice) or $5 for a set of all six.
- Want a LOT of bookmarks? $20 gets you a PARTY pack of 30 bookmarks (5 of each design)!
Playmats are large 24 x14 inch fabric mats with a rubber back (1/16" thick total). They are printed by Inked Gaming and are VERY high quality and can even be washed. They are great for playing cards on and also work well as as a desk mat or over-sized mousepad. To add a mat your your pledge simply add on: US $18, CA $20, INT $22. Two mat designs are available:

Risks and challenges
I've run over a dozen successful kickstarters and have always delivered on time (if not early!). This project has very little risk since the deck design is done (the photo shown is an actual deck sample, not a mockup!). The only work on the project will be the few variants that are stretch goals and the actual shipping of the items to backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
