Animal Adventures brings intelligent animal character to your favourite fantasy roleplaying game! Cats and Catacombs is the second in a planned series of Animal Adventures releases! It is a set of highly detailed miniatures combining some your favourite cat breeds with different classes of the fifth edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game!

Hesta, Indy and Pawkus prepare for a new adventure.

This set features not only the miniatures in preassembled ready-to-play or paint PVC, but also a bespoke set of fifth edition compatible rules for using your Animal Adventure miniatures and playing as cats in ANY campaign setting.

You will be able to mix feline characters with your regular adventuring party or create an entire team of kitty heroes to save the world! The miniatures also make perfect companions and familiars for your existing characters in any fantasy setting or game.

Our range of feline characters are true cats, four legged companions true of heart and pure of souls! We have chosen to further our range of 'non-humanoid' minis to offer as much of a unique play experience as we possibly could.

Each cat has been lovingly designed and sculpted, by some serious cat fans, to be bursting with personality and detail. From the rune engraved robes of Hesta, the Wizard, to the Twin Fish of Harmony & balance on Han, the Monk, care has been taken to add charm and sophistication to every model.

The Meow! Pledge $35/£27

After the success and the incredible feedback we received with our last campaign with Dungeons and Doggies, we have chosen to keep the same simple formula as it makes it easy for us to support and also ensures a smooth and swift delivery.

The Meow! Pledge brings you 13 kitty miniatures along with the Rules and Adventure Companion PDF's as well as art prints from our incredible art team!

Rather than include stretch goals that would complicate the process, in an attempt to encourage more participation, we are keeping things really easy with only one pledge level, that gets you everything we can cram into this campaign!

The future is looking very bright for Animal Adventures, and with your continued amazing support we are going to be bringing more animals on many more adventures!

The cats are all designed to go on 20mm bases and scaled to fit in with existing RPG miniature ranges. And, although we are providing full rules to create your own kitty adventures, each miniature comes with its own pre-generated character, complete with character sheet and short story! Whether you fancy being Verdandi, the Norwegian forest druid or Brook, the Scottish fold cleric, there's a cat for every player.

Alongside our range of miniatures, we are proud to present and include in our campaign a full set of digital rules and a unique adventure that provides a perfect setting for a great one-shot RPG experience, for absolutely free!

Our rules set contains OGL fifth edition racial rules for creating a courageous cat, unique feline feats and class options, feline feats and class options, notes on the Welcoming Dark, the Special Demiplane of cats,  world lore and trickster patrons and a host of feline magic items for your heroes to bat about and knock off shelves! 

The accompanying adventure, titled "The Lair of the Necromeowncer", is designed to be played either with the characters included in the rules or with any party of equivalent level (even dogs!) and tells of a dark magic at work deep underground, where sinister arcane power and mad science threaten devastation and ruin!   

Russ Charles is part of the team and principal sculptor behind Painting & Polygons which brought you Dungeons and Doggies! Russ has worked in the games industry for many years and has contributed to projects as wide ranging as Reaper Bones, Dr Who, Warmachine, Resident Evil 2, Guild Ball, Critical Role and more recently the Humblewood D&D setting. He currently works full time as lead in-house sculptor for SFG. 

Featuring stunning art from the likes of April Prime, who's previous work includes the excellent Baby Bestiary for Metal Weave Games and also our very own Dungeons and Doggies! We'd also like to welcome Vikki Gavrilenko to the team who has worked on DC's Injustice 2!

If you would like to find out more about the work both these amazing artists have produced then give them a follow on Twitter.

Also returning from the Dungeon and Doggies project is Kate who provided us all with the wonderful tales and lore that we all adored and Baz n' Gaz who provide us with the rules and mechanics allowing our animal friends to really come to life! 



Shipping will be charged after the Kickstarter finishes based on actual costs incurred to ship and is collected via our pledge manager system. This allows us to charge fairly for all backers and avoid a 'one size fits all' mentality to shipping 

We will ship your pledges to several hubs around the world at our cost. Your pledge will arrive via one of the following hubs: 


  • United Kingdom (UK, Europe **and Rest of the World backers) 
  • USA (US backers)  
  • Canada (Canada backers) 

Below are our initial rough estimates for shipping the sets. These are just estimates, and may change:  

  • UNITED KINGDOM: £6. Channel Islands, Highlands and NI £6-£13  
  • USA: £7-£11 to the contiguous US and the US Virgin Islands. £17-20 to Alaska, Hawaii,         and Puerto Rico.  
  • CANADA: £7-£15 to most cities.  
  • EUROPE: £8-£20 to most countries. £20-£30 to non-EU countries.  
  • LATIN AMERICA: £25-£40 to most countries.  
  • ASIA: £15-£25 to most countries.  
  • OCEANIA: £9-£18 to Australia and New Zealand.  
  • AFRICA/OTHER: £25-£50 to most countries.

Unfortunately, different import laws and customs mean we are unable to ship pledge rewards to the following countries: 

Afghanistan, Argentina, Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil, Burma, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Egypt, Eritrea, Falkland Islands, French Guiana, French Polynesia, Republic of Guinea, Republic of Guinea-Bissau, Gyana, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, Libya, Mali, Martinique, Mexico, New Caledonia, North Korea, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Reunion Island, Somalia, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, South Sudan, Sudan, Suriname, Syria, The Republic of Maldives, Tunisia, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, Yemen, Zimbabwe, the Canadian province of Quebec and American State of Rhode Island.

If your country is listed above we hope to be able to offer this product to you at retail but are unable to commit to shipping to these territories during the Kickstarter. 

Whilst we will strive to deliver your rewards in a timely manner, you may not receive your reward before the product is available for purchase at retail, or other promotional opportunities such as conventions. We have ensured that the pledge reward offered is packed with fantastic value and Kickstarter exclusives to compensate for any potential delays. However, if this unacceptable to you, please do not back this project and instead wait for the retail release. Thank you for your understanding. 

Any pledges confirmed after our pledge manager deadline will be shipped from the UK hub at a later date and will likely incur increased shipping costs.  

** There is a degree of uncertainty on the UK's future trade relationship with the EU due to Brexit. In the event no custom's friendly agreement is reached when it is time to fulfil this Kickstarter, an alternative hub will be sourced for EU fulfilment. 

 We are unable to ship to PO Boxes. 

Risks and challenges

=========
Challenges
=========

This is now our second Kickstarter project, even though our first project met all expectations and was a success, we are fully aware of the potential delays that may happen with products that are produced in China, the common ones being delays in production, shipping, and customs.

We have estimated delivery for January 2020, but please understand this is only an estimate. Due to the global logistics involved in shipping, some regions may receive their pledges sooner than others.

=======
Refunds
=======

We have prepared as much as possible with our production for a successful Kickstarter; however, we will refund pledges if for some unforeseen reason the product cannot be delivered at all.

Refunds may be given within 60 days of the campaign ending, including fees. After that time, refunds may be given minus the Kickstarter and payment processing fees, as we will not be able to claim those back after 90 days.

We are unable to issue refunds once we have begun the packaging and shipment stages of the project (around 6–8 weeks before the actual shipping date).

Refunds within 60 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit/debit card. Refunds after 60 days of the campaign ending are processed via PayPal only.

This is a GBP Kickstarter and refunds will be processed in GBP for the amount received, excluding any applicable fees dependent on the day on which the refund is processed as detailed above.

=================
Terms and Conditions
=================

If you do not confirm your shipping and pledge details within 10 weeks of our notification via email to confirm them, your pledge will be treated as abandoned. We will, however, look at each case sympathetically and try our best to satisfy each customer.

By pledging on this Kickstarter you agree that our responsibility to you is for shipping your order as entered into the pledge management system. You are responsible for import or other duties that may be payable to relevant tax authorities. You also accept that you are fully liable for incorrect shipping details and will risk your pledge being unable to be delivered or lost in transit.

By pledging on this Kickstarter you acknowledge that the final look and contents of the pledges may change and differ from what is presented at the start of the campaign.

If you do not accept the proposed terms please do not pledge on this Kickstarter project and wait for the global general release.

This project will be manufactured and distributed by SFG - the same company who did the manufacturing and distribution of Dungeons and Doggies.
