We think it is now safe to say that our Kickstarter for Cthulhu Tales has funded!
Thank you so much once again for all your support in our mission to bring Cthulhu Tales to life. We can't wait to get started.
The exciting part is we already have! You might have seen the rulebook (downloadable at the campaign page) and many of the cards (viewable in a recent update). Now seems like a good time to show you an example of the kind of card we'll be producing for the Immortalised in Tales pledge level.
This pledge level sees your likeness rendered as a Cthulhu Tales card, and you will permanently become part of Mythos gaming history! It's limited to just ten slots, so if this is something you're considering, don't hold back. Once they're gone, they're gone.
We're delighted to be able to show you this example card, the subject of which some of you may recognise!
Stuart Boon has done some great things for us in helping to create Cthulhu related games like the award winning Shadows Over Scotland, and our Cthulhu Britannica London Boxed Set. And indeed, Stuart helped with the development of Cthulhu Tales. We've immortalised him as the Family Doctor card, with art duties performed by the inimitable Scott Purdy.
In case you're not keeping a close eye on the campaign comments section, here's a quick recap of recent additions to the campaign. We've added two Add Ons – you can now add additional copies of the game to your pledge for £20, plus £3 shipping. You can also, if you're inspired to back at the Immmortalised level, add additional portraits to your card for just £100.
We've also added some more information on the Immortalised in Tales level in the FAQ.
Our next stop is the custom die for the game – right now it will ship with a standard twelve sided die. If we can reach our next stretch goal it will be a custom die with a Cthulhu face and an HP Lovecraft face, in addition to the numbers one to ten. And we all want to roll a Lovecraft.
Thanks to everyone who has been joining in with our Cthulhu Tales games on Twitter using the hashtag #ctales. We've been getting some great responses to our challenge to tell a one card tale in 140 characters.
Next week we'll have some backer-only updates giving backers a glimpse behind the design and production curtain.
Thanks again to all of our marvellous backers! We're delighted to be working with our backers to bring Cthulhu Tales into reality.
