"Why did we seek out this partnership? We first encountered Eleventh Hour Games at Pax South 2019. In the sea of AAA game companies and T-shirt towers, Last Epoch stood out to us. Personally, action RPGs are my favorite genre, I’ve been playing Diablo since I was 9. So naturally I geeked out about their game. At PAX east I got to meet the team and see how much love and hard work they put into their game. That’s the same passion we put into our products and it made it very apparent that I wanted to work with them."

We set out to Kickstart the Ultimate Deskmat for a couple of different reasons. The first is that we've been asked over and over again, via social media and at our convention booth- "When can I get one that covers my whole desk?" To all of our incredible, patient customers, we're happy to announce, it's finally here!
The second reason is that as a company, we want to transition toward becoming a platform that isn't just about designing the greatest products that we can, but a company that uses it's arsenal of great products to help budding artists blossom. Moving forward N3 will be re-branding as an art collective, and we will be doing everything that we can to help artists position themselves to start getting paid. Supporting this project directly supports us on that mission.
"My main mission while working with other Artists is to elevate and empower them to fuel their creativity. I was really lucky to have a supportive family, create a stable business, and build connections that allowed me to focus on just creating art. I want to be able to provide that same sense of security to other passionate and driven creators.
One way I approach that is by providing access to sales channels and manufacturing that might otherwise be difficult to reach. The other is by compensating artists well, and paying up front for their work. I built my reputation on reliability and hard work so I want to extend the same thing to like minded creators."
Cody is the founder of Heady Scarf Gang, a clothing brand that has it’s roots planted in the electronic music scene. For the first time official HSG artwork is branching out to other products. We’re excited to feature Cody and Heady Scarf Gang’s line of geometric art.
Bebo is a power house in the tabletop industry, if you're not following her you should fix that. Her How to Play's are not only the highest quality you'll find, but she also does an amazing job cultivating a welcoming and inclusive gaming community. Bebo is an especially skilled creator and we're thrilled to get to work with her.
Colin was one of Nolan's illustration mentors in college and an incredibly skilled artist. Nolan and Colin have been working on projects together for years, including Tabletop RPGs, Board games, and sharing their personal work with each other. It's an honor to get to produce some of Colin's work here!
We'll be working with Backer Kit to bring you a pledge manager almost immediately after the Kickstarter ends! We're looking to fulfill this project as smoothly and as quickly as possible and Backerkit helps in that process. After the campaign you'll receive a survey where you can easily pick which style deskmat you want!
Risks and challenges
With every project there's risks and challenges. Fortunately for this project we're using a manufacturer that we've worked with for years so that will be extremely dependable. Samples are already produced and ready to go!
As for shipping, we already have a plan and team in place to fulfill as soon as we receive stock.
As a team this is our 8th kickstarter so we're familiar with the process and you can count on us. We'll be transparent and communicative about any sort of problems! However, we anticipate the chance for error to be exceptionally low!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
