As I woke up this morning, I saw that we are creeping up on 90% funding ($14,400) and have passed $14,000 in total funding. Excellent. Of course, I knew immediately why we saw that uptick . . . having been working with Phil and Steve for the last week or so to plan it. Here’s the announcement – taken right from the Decks of Destiny Update – of new collaborative goals for 4PJ.
Speaking of stretch goals to reveal, here are three new stretch goals that expand the Decks of Destiny project as the Four Perilous Journeys campaign attracts support.
- Four Perilous Journeys – $16,000 – Rumors & Treasures – Four rumor cards added to the Rumors & Treasures subassembly, each based on one of the Four Perilous Journeys adventures.
- Four Perilous Journeys – $20,000 – Adversaries – Four character cards added to the Adversaries subassembly, each based on one of the Four Perilous Journeys adventures.
- Four Perilous Journeys – $25,000 – Rumors & Treasures – Four more rumor cards added to the Rumors & Treasures subassembly, each based on one of the Four Perilous Journeys adventures.
To unlock these stretch goals, visit and support the Four Perilous Journeys campaign today! These new cards, if unlocked, will provide you with hooks to the four adventures that may either be used to guide the player characters into one of the adventures or, if you wish, as the springboard to an adventure of your own design.
The Cards: Rumors, Monsters, and More
Each of the rumors, treasures, and creatures is tied to one of the four new adventures in some way. I’m taking care to ensure that each thing ties in with the adventures, while not requiring them. You might encounter an NPC or key player from Ironskull Castle, who’s off doing her own thing. Or catch a glimpse (or be brought face-to-face) with a monster from another . . . and learn important information that will help motivate a side-trip to the Citadel of Ice. And what are the undead Pirates doing here?
From $25,000 to $32,000
There’s plenty of room between the DoD stretch goal and the point where scale and demand drive an upgrade to a full offset print run (which would see extra copies on retail shelves, in distribution!). I’ve been looking into 1″ square tokens on 1.6 or 2.5mm stock, as well as custom card decks for easy tracking of all the critters in the adventures at the table.
If we pass $25,000 . . . these will get real, and fast.
20 Days to Go!
There’s still plenty of time left, and at current pace – unless you guys surprise me – we’re on track to fund next week. There are still 368 people following but not yet pledged to the campaign, a potential pool of $15,000 that sees us through all of the combined DoD stretch goals and likely into the zone where cards and tokens become a real possibility.
Thanks for coming with us this far . . . and I hope we knock down the new goals fast!
