About

The Ninepoint Empire has suppressed the calicos for centuries. The kittezens rest in peace knowing that this “calico scourge” is disposed of. At least, that’s what they thought.

Marble, a rare male calico, manages to escape his fate when he is adopted by a family of raccoons. As he grows he comes to learn about the world he escaped from. Meanwhile, the true scourge encroaches on the life of peace Ninepoint and beyond is accustom to.

The Scourge of Ninepoint is a nine book epic fantasy. It features full colour painter style illustrations, cats, knights, cats who are knights, Canadian wildlife and more!

This campaign is designed to raise money for Issue #2 of The Scourge of Ninepoint.  This issue is nearly three times larger than our previous issue.

The money earned through this will be divided into Kickstarter fees, backer rewards, shipping and cost of printing.

E-Book bundle includes Issue #1 & 2.

McKay & Gray consists of Lady Amalthea and Prince Lir (and their human servants Bones and Ursula). They work together sitting in sunbeams, knocking stuff off high places, and creating books.

All their work can be found over on the McKay & Gray Etsy.

Bones McKay - Writer: The writer and co-creator of the Scourge of Ninepoint. Bones loves animals about as much as he loves writing.  He always wanted a white cat with blue eyes until said cat ate all his house plants.

Ursula Gray - Artist: A queer Canadian illustrator and co-creator for the project. Ursula loves  cats and art despite occasionally shouting, "I never want to deal with this again!!" The struggles are worth it.

Lady Amalthea - Spirit World Liaison: An incredibly loud cat capable of seeing ghosts within a 10 meter radius. Meows a lot. Also she would like to inform you that her food bowl is empty.

Prince Lir - Pointed Cat Expert: A short statured assassin. It's not a question of will he trip you, it's when will he trip you. His food bowl is also empty. So. Like... Could you do something about that?

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is always adhering to timelines. This is not our first kickstarter campaign so we are confident in sending everything out, but delays sometimes occur.

The goal is to print and then ship Issue #2 and "Honey Walls" at the same time. Timelines should align but we do have a backup plan in case they do not.
