Latest Updates from Our Project:

Thank you + Next Steps
20 days ago – Sun, Nov 19, 2023 at 02:37:41 PM

Thank you for making our project a reality! A few things need to happen before we can kick off production and fulfillment.

Here's a quick rundown:

First,  Kickstarter  needs to transfer over the funds so we have the money to make the rewards, This just completed this weekend, we are in the final processing phase of this and expect to be unblocked in a day or 2.

Second, we have to find out where we need to ship them. We’ll send out a BackerKit survey to collect this information. It will be coming soon!

We’ll give you a heads-up before we send the survey so that you can watch for it. You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to answer your survey. The invitation email contains a link to your personal survey. It is important to submit your responses as quickly as you can since we need this information to process your rewards.

If you need to change your survey responses, purchase add-on items, or update your shipping information, you can click the link in your survey email again or request your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page. (This page will only start working after we send the surveys out.)

Answering your survey help us get your rewards out to you faster. BackerKit helps us save lots of time by streamlining the survey process, automating data organization, and providing us with pledge management software to make it easy to process your pledge reward shipments.

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your crowdfunding account, the BackerKit survey link is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact me at [email protected].

Again, thanks for all your support. We can’t wait to send you your dice.

Just 4 hours left and another Stretch Goal unlocked!
about 1 month ago – Tue, Oct 31, 2023 at 05:46:21 PM

We are getting right to the very end of this campaign and we just unlocked another stretch goal! The quests of the King of Halloween will now be a free digital download for all backers at the "Complete Bundle" tier or higher, along with all other unlocked stretch goals! Up next is a Kingly Treasure! The Majestic Loot that players can obtain by taking down this fearsome foe! 

The current favorite to win the title of "King of Halloween" is the Pumpkin King, but it is really close, and with 3 ways for each person to vote (by stating a preference in the Discord Channel, by posting a story about the candidate in story-snippets, or creating fan art and posting it in the Discord's art channel) any villain could still win! 

Thank you so much for your support, and a truly excellent community! Hope to see you on Discord!

Final Hours! Stretch goals Unlocked!

Thanks everybody for an absolutely awesome campaign. We are in the final hours and we have well exceeded the goals that we had. I am super excited to share these dice with you. Because of your support we have been able to unlock a stretch goal where the Villain that is named the "King of Halloween" will get a digital download of their lore, as well as a low-level stat block in for 5e RPG systems. Up next is a stretch goal for a quest line to introduce the villain and their nefarious schemes!

But how does a villain become the King of Halloween? Simple! Just vote for your favorite villain on our Discord server at, If you are feeling super enthusiastic about your candidate you can also vote again by explaining why you think a villain would make a good King of Halloween on the Story-Snippets section of the Discord server, and you can now vote an additional time by posting fan-art of your favorite villain in the art channel. 3 ways to vote for the villain of your choice! When the campaign closes at 11:59pm Halloween night we will tally up the votes and and crown our champion. 

These rewards will be shared exclusively with combo tier backers, so please help us spread the word and share the glory of scented dice! And thanks again for all of your support in making our hobby a little more fun!
