Earth Dragons & Other Rare Creatures: Playing Cards & Books

$14,136

Earth Dragons is the latest in a series of dragons & other rare creatures projects that feature books and matching decks of playing cards. Already released in the series are: Dragon Scale, Water Dragons, Fire Dragons, and Baby Dragons.

Please Note: there's a typo on the "Both paperbacks" reward level. It should say Goblin guide not Dragon guide (you get both the Dragon and goblin paperbacks).

About the Decks

ADDITIONAL DECKS may be added on to any pledge of $10 or more.   ADD-ON PRICE: $12 US/$14 International (combined shipping included).

The Earth Dragons deck features full color illustrations of Earth Dragons & other forest creatures from the Earth Dragons book.

  The Goblins deck features black and red pen & ink illustrations of goblins. The style is more like a traditional deck of playing cards.

The decks are standard (poker sized) playing card decks printed at 310 GSM (printing is by MPC) . Each card has a different picture - no repeated artwork in the deck!

About the Books

Earth Dragons & Other Rare Forest Creatures is a 6x9 inch (hardcover or paperback) 100 page field guide. The book begins with Earth Dragons, but then moves on to cover all sorts of earth creatures including elves, dryads, gnomes, dwarves, goblins, unicorns, and much more! 

The Pocket Guide to Goblins is a 5x8  inch 75 page paperback. My love of goblins is one of the reasons I write and draw, so I wanted to give these special earth creatures their own book.  This book is illustrated in pen & ink.

  • Additional Earth Dragons paperbacks can be added for $15 US/$16 International each (combined shipping included).
  • Additional Earth Dragons hardcovers can be added for $20 US/$23 International each (combined shipping included).
  • Additional Goblin Guide paperbacks can be added for $6US/$8 International each (combined shipping included).
  • Older books in the series may be added for the same prices as Earth Dragons EXCEPT for Dragon Scale which is $2 more (it's twice as long).

Limited Edition Sets

I'm please to announce that there are extra special limited edition sets this time around.  These sets include an original watercolor painting from the book, a hand made Earth Dragons pendant by Sparkle Designs, and more! Sparkle Designs is a wonderful small business I have worked with for a number of years and they make amazing pendants!  There are 18 small sets (paintings from 6-10 inches in size) and 12 large sets (11x15 inch paintings) up for grabs!

Risks and challenges

Earth Dragons is my 13th kickstarter! I'm really experienced by now and I always allow an extra month in case anything goes wrong with printing, or there are other emergencies. Usually the projects ship much earlier!
