About

What is my product?  Well it's a deck of 54 playing cards, 53 actual usable cards which will have map elements printed on the back of them.
A Game Master can use these cards to either shuffle up a random dungeon or to lay out their own custom dungeon for their friends!

The Deck of Many has 12 unique cards and multiples of each to literally allow a person to create well over a thousand different combinations of dungeons!  The intended Deck of Many Dungeons will be plastic which will also allow people to write on their cards using whiteboard markers and wipe off any messages again.  I've even had luck using DVD markers!

With this Kickstarter I'm hoping to build brand awareness of this product and to get it into as many DM's hands as possible because I'm trying to shrink down what a DM needs to run a game and therefore make it more accessible to all those that who want to play!  The size of the project and goal is directly proportional to the cost of each deck, I.E. the more I can make the cheaper it will cost to produce.

How am I going to use your funds?  Well to be honest most of the funds will go into production and postage of the product, plus fee's and taxes and what-not.  I have managed to merge my printer & distributor into one so I'm saving a heap of costs there as I don't have to post each item twice and I'm passing these savings onto you guys!

Most of the cards I'm offering are Plastic Playing Cards, this is because I had hoped the product could be used by DM's in conjunction with whiteboard markers to make their games more interesting, but after discussing with some people out there they also wanted a budget option so I introduced a cardboard deck as well to help people who still want to join in the fun but don't have a whole lot of money.

The last thing that I would like to use any money left over for is new artwork, which I can use to make new and exciting "Deck of Many" decks for you all to enjoy!

Thank you for reading and looking at my Kickstarter!

Risks and challenges

I think the biggest risk I'm taking with this campaign is that yes there are similar products like this already on the market, but none of them are playing cards that you can literally just play straight on top of, they're either mini-maps which DM's have to then draw up, square cardboard maps which are much larger or dice and so on. So though simple education, demonstration and making sure that I communicate with everyone I believe this risk can be minimized.

This product I realize also isn't for everyone, but I hope that most DM's out there will universally see it's benefit and back my project.

How do I plan to overcome negative feedback or criticism? Well it's bound to happen so I'm best to simply take any feedback on board for future projects! If this takes off I will take other peoples suggestions into consideration for future decks that might appeal to a different or possibly a wider audience.

Beyond this I hope that I have planned adequately for production, postage and fee's so that there's no delays or hiccup's in the delivery of your products! But I'm only human so I'm just going to cross my fingers on that one and if something does go wrong then I'll have to fork out the rest out of my own pocket (but lets hope that is doesn't come to that!) - Either way you'll all get what you paid for! :)
