Popular and talented cartographer Dyson’s Dodecahedron (aka Dyson Logos) spent September and October entertaining fans by drawing swords. The series was known first as #Swordtember and then as #Choptober can be seen online on the blog.
A Kickstarter funded quickly still has nearly two weeks left on the clock and will now bring the series into a book. You can read more or pledge from the pitch page.
The Kickstarter is being run by Squarehex.co.uk of the Oubliette Magazine and who make paper pads and accessories.
Dyson’s Book of Swords will be 104-pages long, include all 50 swords from the blog series and come with rules light descriptions so you can adapt them for D&D, B/X, and pretty much any retro-clone you can imagine.
The book will be roughly 6″ square (154mm wide x 148mm high) and will be printed in black and white on 120gram, uncoated paper. The covers will be printed on 350gram card with matt lamination.
At only £3, backers will receive a PDF copy of the Book of Swords, and over 150 gamers have signed up for that at the time of writing.
Then, at £12, with shipping offered anywhere globally, a print copy is added to the backer rewards.
There are other tiers, but at £30, a “Limited Test Print Book” and an exclusive card signed by Dyson, a test print copy and a regular print copy of the book reward. However, this tier is about to sell out.
Dyson’s Book of Swords will be fulfilled in May 2022, even the print copies.
