I'm with you Ben, if I had the extra cash and my wife wouldn't divorce me, I would have grabbed the Forgotten Fane cover. As it is, I'm sure it's going to a good home!

And as of today we've topped the second stretch goal... more art on the way! Thanks to everyone for supporting the project!

The support has been amazing, and I'm so excited to know that we'll get some more pieces from Del and John.

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

Fellows,

As I write this message, we are about 50 hours away from the completion of the HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK Kickstarter Campaign

The campaign has been a great success, thanks to your kindness and support. Thank you very kindly for supporting my small press endeavor! I truly appreciate it. 

Here is where we stand:

Initial ($14,000) Funding Goal -- Achieved!
First ($15,000) Stretch Goal -- Achieved!
Second ($17,500) Stretch Goal -- Achieved!
Third ($20,000) Stretch Goal -- Getting close!  

Breaking News!

Fellows, at this time I am adding a Fourth Stretch Goal: If we reach $21,000+, Daisey Bingham will provide some her beautiful colour work to some select Johnathan Bingham illustrations. These will then grace the back covers of the three modules, Ghost Ship of the Desert DunesForgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess, and Beneath the Comet. If you are curious about what Daisey can bring to the table, look no further than the colour work she provided to the cover of Forgotten Fane. She has a unique talent.

More Breaking News!

I'd also like to announce a new incentive just offered to me by illustrator Johnathan Bingham. If you pledge to support one of the support tiers that involves one of Mr. Bingham's original illustrations, he will also create for you a 3 x 5-inch sketch card. This is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece of art!

Please Share With Your Friends!

As we approach the finish line to this Kickstarter Campaign, I humbly request that you take a moment to share this project with some of your gaming friends through the social medium of your choice -- and please be sure to tell them that they can pledge with confidence:

Writing -- Done.
Editing -- Done.
Cover Art -- Done.
Illustrations -- Done.
Maps -- Done

I didn't launch this campaign until all these things were "in the can" as the saying goes. So, what remains? Well, the second stretch goal did call for a handful of new pieces by Bingham and Teigeler. These pieces have been assigned, and the artists are gearing up to complete them (each artist is adding one more illustration to each module; these are modest, reasonable, achievable additions). What else? Layout, printing, and shipping. That's it.

In closing, I leave you with this wonderful illustration by Johnathan Bingham. Beware of werewolves!

Cheers,
Jeff Talanian

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

$19,839 now with two days left. I think $20K's a pretty safe bet! Awesome man. Congrats!

Edit: Wow, looks like we hit $20K! Cool. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cool.png

Awwwww yeaaah! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Now I won't have to try to renegotiate my contract to include a set of those bookmarks. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/cute.png

(Just kidding Jeff... I probably wasn't planning to do that...)

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

Well over $20K now! I think there's a good chance of $21K. Regardless, it's a resounding success - congrats to Jeff and all of the contributors.

Haha! What BA23 said!
Thanks to all of those who showed support, backed the project and generally stuck with us through this process. It's been a long time coming, but Jeff did things right and I think the final products will show it!

Re: HYPERBOREA ADVENTURE THREE-PACK KICKSTARTER IS NOW LIVE!

Thanks so much, fellows! Now as my day job winds down for the summer, I can roll up my sleeves and get to work on the layout and printing of these modules! I'm so delighted by the response. I'm very fortunate to have such talented writers and artists on my side, not to mention an editor of startling precision!
