It’s a pre-order+ replacement to Kickstarter, and its been successful on its first go. War of the Magi made its modest 50 books pre-ordered target in about 24 hours.
What if sorcerers were real, and they were all around us? Would they hide their talents from us? Would they protect us or try to dominate us? Would they consider us equals or as lesser beings?
War of the Magi supplements Dark Streets & Darker Secrets, urban fantasy and horror from Gallant Knight themselves.
It’s inspired by movies like Highlander and recognises the influence of RPGs like the World of Darkness.
If no other supporters step forward, it’ll be a 72-page, black and white, softcover print. If the campaign hits 1,000 backers, the book will also have a hardcover offset print run.
The catch? Everything comes from the US for now, which makes War of the Magi an expensive proposition to ship outside of the country.
The bonus? There’s a PDF available which you’ll get a day or two after you place your pre-order.
If you want just the PDF, then War of the Magic will set you back $7, the print $15, and there are economies of scale in getting both as together the total is just $20.
Potential supporters have until January 21st to join the GallantFunding campaign. It’s not clear how many more copies Gallant Knight Games might produce and, therefore, not clear if it’s now-or-never for people who might want an offset print run, and it might depend on interest.
