Micro Quest Cards
These will be 5x7 greeting cards in all respects, except these cards are more adventurous and unique.
Instead of having blank interiors and simple images, these "Greeting Cards" will be 5"x7" 4 page adventure hooks and lair encounters printed on the same superior quality 14pt scored greeting card stock I used before.
Why waste interiors and backs of greeting cards with blank space... for what?
So you can profess your love?
Wish holiday greetings?
Write mushy sentiment?
Trust me on this, you are FAR better off sending an edge of your seat adventure!
It's a greeting card like NO OTHER ready to be added to any RPG table as a GM extra!
The card REALLY IS the gift!
Give ADVENTURE not sappy greeting cards with cats!!
I have rolled around the usps website for a while now. Looked at some costs to just send an envelope to as many countries as I can think of.
For $10 digital Backers, $5 Backers, and $1 backers:
You can NOW ADD $5 to your backer level to ADD one or more 'Get a Card' levels to your current level.
This means I put the greeting card in the envelope, put your address on it and mail you the greeting card. It WILL get machined and treated like a plain 5x7 letter in the USPS, so there is some risk if you are a collector.... but you will get the card(s) you choose in the mail.
I know overseas shipping is a killer, but just sending a 'letter' is still reasonable for overseas ($3 and under). This may open up some options for my international friends to at least get a card, even if it is machined in the mail.

Just in case you haven't been in the OSR loop you can check out some of my illustration clients HERE. There might be some names that ring a bell.

This Kickstarter I am doing something I haven't done too much before. I am allowing ADD-ONS on the fly.
What is an Add-on?I'm glad I asked...Add ons simply allow backers to pledge more dollars to receive extra product as reward for giving up their hard earned bucks.
I am confident add ons will be manageable during the survey part of the Kickstarter. If it gets confusing, I WILL be adding a place for each backer to enter text in a field. This will be a designated field to tell me directly what add-ons you were looking for with your extra pledge.
(I know this sounds a little sloppy... but really it isn't)
ONLY Backers beyond digital level can add in all the add-ons they like. More will be unlocked as stretch goals are reached.
Add ons are listed below:
Extra Micro Quest Greeting Cards ----------------------------------- $3.50 Ea
Get PDFs of ALL Cards created (Includes Stretch)----------------$8.00
Extra character Sheet Notepad-----------------------------------------$6.00Ea
Extra Giant Holiday Greeting Card w/ envelope---------------------$2.00Ea
Extra Santa vs White Dragon Post Card -----------------------------$1.00Ea
(More to come as stretch goals unlock)
At basic funding of $1,100 I will be able to produce FIVE (5) Micro Quest Cards, with envelopes and get them all delivered.
At $1,500 funding, I will create, print and make available (For an additional $3.50 backing each) A sixth Micro Quest Card with envelope!
At $2,000 funding, I will create, print and make available (For an additional $3.50 backing each) A seventh Micro Quest Card with envelope!
At $2,500 funding, I will create, print and make available (For an additional $3.50 backing each) An eighth Micro Quest Card with envelope!
At $3,200 I can produce a Monster Card Pack as a reward option. (For an additional $3.50 each of backing) Monster cards will feature the star monster (or challenge) from each Micro Card quest produced so far.
This will be a pack of 4x6 cards with an illustration on the front of each and the monster (challenge) OSRIC / 1E stats on the reverse.
Risks and challenges
Print shops always have their random issues. I have been working with this same greeting card producer since my first Kickstarter and they will again get my business on this one.
They produce superior products in prompt order. I have designs for the cards well under-way.
I have done this before, I can do it again.
