Hi there! My name is Riri and I love making art that people can enjoy.  I have been selling my art online and at conventions for over a year now, and it has been fun from the very start.  I'd love to start making original designs and seeing them come to life.  This project is one of the stepping stones I'd like to take towards that!

You've been on countless quests before.  Now embark on another with a Little Hero of your own!

We have all had our favorite role when we play games.  Some of us like being the fearless Knight -- we charge in and stay in the front line to protect our team mates.  Some of us like being the attentive Cleric -- healing a flailing party and keeping HP bars full.  Either way, YOU have always been a great asset to the party, no matter what role you like to take on!  Little Heroes is a cute, simple project dedicated to all the different characters and roles we have connected with in games.

Who are the Little Heroes? They are a cast of cute animals representing different default classes in most role playing games.  

This Kickstarter's goal is to bring these original character designs alive through 2" double-sided clear acrylic charms to become key chains.  

You will be able to see a design on both sides of the charms.  Here are our Heroes and the alternative backside design for each:

The 4"x6" character cards included in some reward tiers will tell you all about your favorite Hero! 

Each Hero has their own stats, quote, and little description.  This is mostly just for fun, of course, but also to add more personality to each character.  These will be printed on glossy, light card stock in full color back to back.  They will also be encased in a clear sleeve for protection.

For the initial goal, the plan is to make a batch of 100 charms -- 20 copies of each Hero.  

The estimated cost breakdown is as follows:

  • Charm Production: $400 - this includes having the charm printed, with added gloss, upgrades to fully bring out the designs, and shipping costs from Ink It Labs.
  • Materials: $100 - supplies needed to complete and ship the charms including (but not limited to) key rings, phone lanyards, and packaging
  • Other Expenses: $50 - this covers Kickstarter's fees and any other extra expenses this project may accrue

If you'd like to include any extras to your pledge, please add the following amounts.  The surveys that will be sent out will ask if you'd paid for any extras and to list them down.

Extra 2" Charm: + $7
MINI SPAWN 1" companion charm: + $2

 More stretch goals to be announced!

Risks and challenges

Most, if not all, products that come from this Kickstarter will be created via third party companies, so there could be possible delays in production and shipping time that are outside of my control. Depending on the amount of support Little Heroes receives, please take into consideration that this project is run by one person, so completion/shipping time will be affected by how many backers there are. Also, final designs may be subject to change (but this is very unlikely and will be minimal if needed). Thank you in advance for your patience!
