We'd love to have this one funded pretty much right out the gate!

When the Wolf Comes: A Vikingverse RPG / Ends 8/11

 When The Wolf Comes is a game of storytelling, heroism, and epic struggle set during a reimagined Norse End of Days - and powered by Robert J. Schwalb’s Shadow of the Demon Lord system.

A complete tabletop role-playing game in one (approx) 250-page, 8.5" x 11" hardcover book, When The Wolf Comes provides everything you need to create and play characters, form warbands in pursuit of fame and plunder, and tell sci-fi sagas with your friends.  The book also gives Game Masters all the tools they need to create adventures, a bestiary full of deadly creatures, a detailed history of the Níu Heimar, and extensive advice to help run the game.

Never Too Old to Save the World Anthology / Ends 8/13

Once every generation, there is a Chosen One who will stand between humanity and darkness.

But why is the Chosen One so often a teenager? Why do only children get swept through portals to save the fantastic world on the other side?  Whose idea was it to put the fate of the world in the hands of someone without a fully developed prefrontal cortex?

In Never Too Old to Save the World, nineteen authors explore what would happen if the Chosen One were called midlife. What would happen if the Chosen One were:

  • a soccer mom
  • a cat lady
  • a nosy grandmother
  • a social worker
  • a retiree
  • an aging swordmaster?

The Chosen One could be anyone—because when the universe calls, the real question is whether the hero will take up the mantle and answer their midlife calling. Sometimes the world needs a hero who's already been in the thick of chaos and survived. In those cases, age does matter.

Warlock 5: The Revenge by Cullen Bunn // Launches 8/2

Five guardians protect the multiverse. There's only one problem: they hate each other!

Originally created by Gordon Derry and Denis Beauvais, Warlock 5 was published by Barry Blair, a Canadian comic book publisher, artist, and writer, known for launching Aircel Comics in the 1980s. A fierce advocate for innovation in the themes, genres, and types of illustrations, Blair helped to bring titles to life that broke the narrative and graphic boundaries at the time — including Warlock 5.

In 2017 we successfully funded the first sequel, The Return,  to the original series with your help. And in 2020, with the help of creator and artist Den Beauvais, we successfully retouched, revised, and funded the Omnibus of the original series, with two extra issues that had never been released.

Now we're back with the follow-up to The Return! This picks up right where The Return ended.

This is the first of a three-issue graphic novel - it'll be 20 pages of full-color artwork, and the floppy will only ever be available through  Kickstarter and will be limited to a small run of 1000 copies.

Bullets & Bleedthroughs 5E RPG // Launches 8/9

 Welcome to the world of the Now, an unforgiving place settled by survivors from the dead world of Before. Crooked Folk stalk the dusty Inland, pouncing on travelers too stupid to hide behind a town wall. Leicesterites spread their rite across the lands, sniffing for bleedthroughs full of Before treasure. Bird-Riders race on their ten-foot tall birds towards loot and carnage.

In the absence of Papa Lucy and the Family, Magicians rule over the scattered Towns. They practice the lost magical arts of that world, even as civilization slips through their fingers. Forbidden and operating in secret are the Jesusmen, an outlawed order of knights-errant, tasked with guarding the settlers from otherworldly predators. By shotgun, mark and word, they guard that thin veil between the worlds.

You are a new Mob, a wandering gang determined to survive by any means. The Water-Barons rule the muggy rot of the Riverland, and the farms of the Overland are watched by well-armed Coin-Riders. The only place left for you is the Inland, a place of dust and flies, where only the brutal survive.

The Funky Fish Artbook // Launches 8/16

Why fish? I’ve gotten that question a lot.

It’s as simple as just wanting to draw fish. A few years ago, I  realized I wasn’t very good at drawing fish and decided to practice. It turned into a somewhat daily exercise. These drawings are the result.

I hope you like them.

This coffee table art book will be a 208-page, 9"x7" hardcover with over 100 unique fish designs in black, white, and greyscale.
