Quick synopsis:


Almost 100 years after the Raconii wars, Fear has returned to the Northern Continent. Tetra, a world split in two, is on the brink of war, and everywhere the signs point to the end of life as it is known.

However, to one man, there is only one crisis happening. Protecting a girl he found lost in the woods with no memory. Filled with action, romance, adventure, and fantastical bounds, this is a tale to enjoy with a cup of tea.

Short Summary:

I started writing this story my junior year of high school. That was 6 years ago. It didn't take off till my senior year. For inspiration, I used Tolkien, Chris Bunch, and Lodoss War. The entire reason it isn't finished is partially due to a lazy bug. I lost a lot of what I had written a few years back when I lost my pc, but I resumed writing recently and finished the first half. The second half is what this indiegogo is for. I plan on finishing it and publishing a full fledged book by June. All I need is help. That is where you come in.

What We Need & What You Get

Basically this is how it breaks down:

  • The larger portion is going towards paying for publishing (including everyone's contribution gift), while the smaller portion is to help pay rent while I write the book.
  • Perks include free copies of part 1, physical copies of the book (signed!) and what I call Punch the author! (You get to criticize as I write part 2, and tell me things that need fixed in part 1)
  • If I don't reach the full goal, all funds will be saved until I can afford the publishing, but only Ebooks will be able to be given away. The weekly changes and punch me in the face parts will still apply though. Just ebooks instead of physical copies.

Don't worry about international shipping, I'll cover it by the way. If you feel generous, you can cover it yourself.

If your broke:

Please help spread the word.

 

Stretch goals:

These are simple:

At 3000, EVERYONE who gives more than 10 USD will get a physical copy. Also, this makes part 1 free (because it's only the first half)

At 3500, I will make tshirts for everyone who gives more than 15 USD

At 4000, I will throw a launch party inviting everyone who gives more than 20 USD, where they can pick up their copies of the book as well.

At 5000, well I don't know at that point, but I doubt I'll get that high. If I do, I'll post a youtube video of me doing stupid stuff people ask me to do that contributed. (Oh and everyone who contributes gets a physical copy and t-shirt.)

 

Big Update

If I meet the goal, I will also turn the story into an interactive fiction game. If I get 500 over the goal, it will be a Visual Novel made with RenPy. The game will be on WIN/Mac/Lin. As a thank you, all backers would get a copy of the game, which will be made available after the book.
