The Wyrmwood Hero Vault is a hand-crafted case for your favorite role playing miniature or other treasured gaming accouterments. Available in a wide variety of striking natural woods, it encases your mini in foam with powerful rare-earth magnets for an enclosure as secure as it is beautiful. Protect your miniature; honor your character. The Wyrmwood Hero Vault.

Constructed from exceptional materials, the Masterwork Hero Vault is for the gamer that wants something even more unique than our selection of solid Hero Vaults. It showcases a Burmese Sal Burl veneer on both faces, surrounded by bold silver stringing, all applied to a solid Gabon Ebony Vault, for a truly evocative piece.

Hand-picked materials join breathtaking marquetry work inspired by a 16th century motif to create the ultimate tribute to your character. Painstakingly hand-crafted in very small numbers, the Dungeon Master Hero Vault is our offering for those seeking the absolute best in heirloom craftsmanship. Exceptional and luxurious by any standard, for the gamer whose passion is without peer.

We offer the ultimate Wyrmwood Adventure to one backer. You will meet with Douglas and Ian Costello, our founders and head craftsmen, to collaborate on a set of Hero Vaults for you entire party made from the finest materials available. Sourcing the lumber personally, brainstorming design elements, learning master woodworking techniques in our New England workshop - you'll take part in every aspect of the creative process to make your Hero Vaults entirely your own.

Note: backer will be responsible for his or her own travel arrangements.

CREATION: When the project achieves the funding goal, the Hero Vault becomes reality. All pledges will become orders, and we will produce and ship all rewards according to the pledge delivery timelines.

CURATION: If the project reaches this level of funding, the Hero Vault will enter the Wyrmwood product line. Post-campaign, it will become available on our website and at our convention appearances on a permanent basis.

COMMEMORATION: When we reach our final stretch goal, all backers become Rangers of Wyrmwood and receive a pair of commemorative dice honoring their achievement. 

Begun in our previous campaign for the Wyrmwood Magnetic Dice Tower System, this program is our way of recognizing your dedication to our craftsmanship and ideals. Rangers of Wyrmwood are entitled to exciting bonuses and rewards. In this campaign, Rangers of Wyrmwood will receive complimentary gift wrapping on their Hero Vaults.

Douglas Costello, designer of the Hero Vault, walks you through the process of taking raw lumber to finished product in this step-by-step video.

The Costello Brothers and longtime friend Ed Maranville founded Wyrmwood on a simple belief - gamers appreciate and deserve fine craftsmanship. The company has grown from these humble beginnings to a group of 20 dedicated craftsmen, united in their passion for making the finest tabletop gaming products available today. By supporting this project, you support these craftsmen and our mission, and we sincerely thank each and every one of you.

Risks and challenges

The Hero Vault campaign is very low risk. As always, all of the work is done in our New England workshop. We're sourcing all of the materials early, and as soon as the project reaches its goal, we'll begin production.

This is our third Kickstarter campaign, and we continue to learn and grow with each experience.

Our first campaign concluded in 2013, and our second campaign wrapped up in summer of 2015 and is being fulfilled as we speak, ahead of schedule. We have planned the work in such a way that this campaign will not affect fulfillment of our second campaign, and vice versa, so you can rest assured that our delivery estimates will be accurate.

We look forward to launching this new product and getting it into your hands as soon as possible!
