About

The Far Traveler's Collection

$171,650

2,788

The Rook and The Raven are back with more Mischief & Misadventure for your D&D table! This time, we've brought with us four shiny, new, glorious products to help keep your notes organized, pretty, and protected...

This time 'round, all rewards will ship out according to backer number, so if you want to save your spot while you peruse the rewards, pledge $1 or more to lock in your backer number now!

Also, every backer, regardless of pledge amount, will get full access to all rewards (and exclusives) in the pledge manager. The pledge manager is expected to remain open through autumn, so if you're on-the-fence (or need to wait a little bit), any pledge amount will hold your place.

BUT KEEP IN MIND

No one gets anything unless we reach our goal :)

Ready?

Below you'll find details on the four new products that comprise the Far Traveler's Collection as well as the kickstarter-exclusive Voyager's Trunk and our three stretch goals. The reward tier you select is just a starting point -- you'll be able to add on any of the rewards in the pledge manager (along with any of the page packs and accessories already available in our store) once the Kickstarter ends.

A Quick Pause To Credit Our Artist

The artwork engraved on the Cloak of Protection and Far Traveler's Notebook, as well as the artwork printed on the inner covers of the Gilded Series Cover Sets all feature the incredible illustrations of our good friend Deven Rue, whose recent credits also include Critical Role's official 'Wildemount' map!

Now, on to the rewards!

Deluxe Edition MMCD
Deluxe Edition MMCD

For the new Deluxe Edition, we have taken our classic Mischief & Misadventure Campaign Diary (MMCD) and made it even more amazing. How, you ask? Well, we're getting to that!

If you've never used a disc-bound book before, the 8 free-floating discs hold the pages securely -- until you want to make a change, that is. You can freely and easily add, remove, and rearrange pages to make your book truly your own.

When your character levels up (or... ahem... "moves on"), you can simply swap out the well-designed Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Character Pages* for fresh ones and keep rolling.  Here's what's inside our standard Diary:

  • D&D 5e Character Sheet Sets (x5)
  • D&D 5e Spell List Sheets (x5)
  • Wet-Erase Overlays (x2)
  • Character Background Sheets (x3)
  • Session Note Sheets (x25)
  • Lined Note Pages (x20)
  • Quad Pages (x5)
  • Blank Sketch Pages (x5)
  • Map Sheets (x5)

See our FAQ for more information about support for D&D Adventurer's League and other systems (including Pathfinder)

Using an MMCD, you can still continue to use some of your favorite TTRPG tools. For example, we sell SpellBook Card Holders so you can keep your spell cards at your disc-bound fingertips!

While the standard edition MMCD is already available for purchase in our shop, the new Deluxe Edition MMCD comes Mithral-Bound (with dark metal discs) and wrapped in our brand new, engraved-leather Cloak of Protection. It also comes fully stocked with our new Adventuring Party and Critters, Companions, Conjurations, and Constructs page packs.

With all the addons and extras, this Kickstarter-exclusive bundle saves you more than 25% off the cost of buying all the pieces separately!

NOTICE: The $60 Cloak of Protection tier is for the leather cover only. It does not include a Campaign Diary. Select this tier if you already have a Campaign Diary and/or have ordered a standard book from our shop

This rugged, oiled-leather cover is beautifully etched and precision cut to fit right onto the disc-binding of your MMCD. Fully engraved with our classic D20 design and the inimitable artwork of Deven Rue, the Cloak of Protection will protect your book and look mighty fine doing it.

Loud the winds howl, loud the waves roar,
Thunderclaps rend the air;
Baffled, our foes stand by the shore,
Follow, they will not dare...

- Skye Boat Song (1884)

Far Traveler's Notebook

Tucked inside the engraved, oiled-leather cover, you'll find the same amazing Mischief & Misadventure page designs you know and love:

  • D&D 5e Character Sheets
  • Wet Erase Overlay Insert
  • Spell Lists
  • Session Notes
  • Map Pages
  • Quad Sheets
  • Blank / Sketch Sheets

However, instead of the discs you find in the MMCD, the Far Traveler's Notebook features traditional traveler-style elastic binding, and the booklets are configured to best take advantage of the change.

Crafted in the traditional style of the ever-popular Traveler's Notebook, these customizable, stackable, and swappable booklets easily slip into and out of the cover's elastic bands when you want to make a change (and hold fast when you don't).

With four elastic bands, carry as many as 12 full-size booklets, plus accessories

The standard kit includes 4 insert booklets, though the elastic bindings and wraparound leather cover make it easy to add and accommodate additional booklets, inserts, and accessories.

While all of these items will eventually be available for preorder in our store, we did want to reward you, our backers, with something special.

To that end, we present to you our Voyager's Trunk!

Every reward tier that includes a bundle will automatically receive one Voyager's Trunk blind box. Additional ones may be added in the pledge manager.

The Voyager's Trunk -- a blind-box bundle of goodies!
The Voyager's Trunk -- a blind-box bundle of goodies!

Why a blind box?
We have a lot of ideas for what we'd like to include, but some of them require special materials or equipment, so it'd be too expensive to produce fewer than a certain quantity.

So why a BLIND box? Why not just make them stretch goals?
Once we see where the campaign ends up, funding-wise, we want to curate the best Trunk that we can. That may mean leaving out or swapping some of the goodies that would otherwise be "unlocked" (if these were treated as stretch goals)

On that topic...

 
Full disclosure: we hadn't planned on doing stretch goals this time around.

There were three additional products that we'd been working on, and had planned to include in the Far Traveler's Collection.  However, each of them would require additional (expensive) machinery or specialized tools, and we didn't want to run the risk of the whole project failing to reach a lofty funding goal for the sake of these specialty products.

So... we came up with a compromise: we've taken these three ambitious projects and set three equally ambitious goals. Will we hit even one of them? We have no idea!  But if we do, it means we'll have the funding necessary to be able to bring these projects to life.

Stretch Goals 1 of 3 Revealed
Stretch Goals 1 of 3 Revealed

Stretch Goal #1: Printable Far Traveler's PDFs ($200,000)

We weren't kidding when we said ambitious. If we can reach 8x our funding goal before the campaign ends on Sept 20th, we will develop and release official, printable, form-fillable PDF versions of all of the pages in our Far Traveler's Notebook!



Risks and challenges

Our first kickstarter campaign taught us quite a few things about the pitfalls of a campaign being significantly more successful than expected.

This time around, we have plans in place to be able to quickly scale our production capacity in order to match the outcome of the campaign, whether that's 100 backers or 100,000 backers, and we've set a much more reasonable timeline that we should be able to hit regardless of how well the campaign does.

There are two other notable changes that we're making this time around. First, in order to make pledging clear and simple, shipping and tax will be handled entirely in the pledge manager. Second, we have taken care to ensure that any stretch goals have as little impact on overall production time as possible.
