Learn About Our Project:

 

Table Titans began three years ago as an online comic created by Scott Kurtz to celebrate his love of Dungeons & Dragons. Quickly growing from one creator posting twice a week to three creators posting daily, Table Titans has become one of the web's biggest gaming comics. Illustrated by Scott Kurtz, Brian Hurtt, Steve Hamaker and a host of the comic industry's best known creators, Table Titans chronicles the adventures of Val Bronzebottom and her friends Darius, Alan, Andrew, Darby, and their DM Brendan as they embark on adventures at and away from the gaming table. 

WHAT IF I MISSED OUT ON VOL 1 OF TABLE TITANS?

No problem! Our first Kickstarter was a huge success and we've picked up a lot of new fans since then, so with this Kickstarter we're offering both Table Titans Volume 1: First Encounters and Table Titans Volume 2: Winter of the Iron Dwarf as beautifully oversized KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE hardcover books!

Though our reward tiers with Table Titans Volume 1: First Encounters are VERY LIMITED there's no need to worry; we will always keep the whole comic series FREE TO READ ONLINE AT TABLETITANS.COM!

 

WHAT IF I'VE NEVER PLAYED D&D?

No problem! If you like high adventure, swords and sorcery, action, drama, comics, laughing and a whole lot of fun, then Table Titans is for you. It DOESN'T MATTER if you've played D&D. No... seriously, it doesn't matter, but don't be surprised if this comic makes you want to try it out. Whether you're a hardened RPG vet, a casual reader with a slight interest in D&D, or if you just love comics, Table Titans, like any roleplaying game, is about telling good stories.

BUT I'M NOT IN THE UNITED STATES AND SHIPPING & CUSTOMS FEES ARE OUTRAGEOUS!

Fortunately for you, we've arranged for rewards to ship from various locations around the globe and we're covering the costs of any additional customs fees. Look for the ★ INTL SHIP version of your reward tier for the best rates!

SOUNDS GOOD, NOW TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE LOOT!

Ah yes, the sweet lootz. Well, first and foremost there are the books. These are oversized, full-color, hardcover tomes featuring KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE cover treatments. You can only get the Kickstarter editions by being a Backer!

WHAT IF I WANT A LITTLE MORE WITH MY BOOK?

You're in luck. Thanks to our fantastic Backers unlocking Stretch Goals galore you can get some fancy Print Sets, Sticker Sheets, and a Moleskine-Style Table Titans Adventure Journal perfect for all your gaming needs!

YEAH, YEAH, BOOKS ARE GREAT. WHAT ELSE YOU GOT?

Oh, you're in it for the good stuff, huh? SO BE IT! How about Kickstarter Exclusive Print Sets, Sticker Sheets, as well as polyhedral of a variety of shapes and sizes, dreaded Mimics disguised as chest-shaped dice bags to protect your plastic gaming bits, and Pinny Arcade Collectors Pins declaring your allegiance to the Table of Titans!

MORE, GIVE ME MORE!

Why you greedy little... alright, you've asked for it. We've teamed with the Gnomish tinkerers at Elderwood Academy to bring you a Table Titans Scroll & Codex for your ultimate die-rolling needs!

YASS! THAT'S IT, I'M READY FOR ADVENTURE!

Then have a look at the Reward Table below. Together we're going to make an amazing book and some fantastic pieces of art. Chose your Rewards wisely and remember, "Titans never say die!"

GIVE ME ADD-ONS, GIVE ME CHOICE! YOUR LOOT COMBOS DO NOT PLEASE ME!

Alright, alright, it's fair to say that you probably know what you want better than we do. Which is why any items from this Kickstarter, as well as some items from our last Kickstarter, are also available a la carte (that's French)!

Simply pick the reward tier you'd like, then add the amount listed in the chart below for any items you'd like to "add-on" to your pledge. Once the campaign is over, we'll use powerful BackerKit Wyzards and their magical Surveys to ask you which add-on items you wanted, and voila (more French) you'll get exactly the combination of rewards you desire!

Table Titans V2 BackerKit Invitations - Check Your Inbox!
about 2 months ago – Fri, Jan 06, 2017 at 08:07:38 PM

Our friends at BackerKit have finished all the needed runic calculations and transferred each Backer's Kickstarter information to their servers! Many of you have probably used BackerKit in the past for other Kickstarters, but just in case you haven't we wanted to include some instructions and a FAQ.

What is this Sorcery?!

BackerKit is an amazing service that gives Backers the ability to do all sorts of post-Kickstarter stuffs like change your pledge, add-on products, and update your address right up until our ship date. You should be receiving an email from BackerKit this weekend with a link to your account that includes all your Backer info, so keep an eye on your spam folders.

If you don't receive an email from BackerKit (or if you're incredibly impatient) just go to this link, enter your Kickstarter or Paypal email address, and click on "Get My Survey”. This will send you a new email with instructions and a link to your account.

But I've already got a Kickstarter account! Do I haaaaaave to use BackerKit?

Yes, you do! (And stop whining)

Trust us, you’re going to love BackerKit. We’re going to use it for all sorts of things including sending out digital editions and collecting your shipping info for physical goods. It also lets us send more than one Survey so, you know, we can ask you more questions, and talk to you… and stuff!

Add-ons?! Add-ons!? ADD-ONS!!!

Okay, okay, yes this is where you’ll do it. If you added money to your Kickstarter Pledge for add-ons BackerKit is where you’ll tell us which ones you wanted. Also, if you forgot to add any extra cash to your Pledge during the Kickstarter but you still want to get an add-on, you can! Don't worry, it’s easy to do and if you have any questions you can get support from the fine folks at BackerKit (or us, we’re still here). 

I want to change my pledge!

No problem! BackerKit makes that possible.

I know someone who missed the Kickstarter but still wants to Pledge.

That's great! Send them over to our BackerKit Pre-Order page

I have other questions, perhaps even ones asked frequently. Mayhaps you have an FAQ?

Why, yes. Yes, we do :)

24 Hours Left: The Final Push and the ULTIMATE-FINAL STRETCH GOAL!
3 months ago – Mon, Dec 05, 2016 at 09:27:33 PM

Okay, we know we said the last Stretch Goal we gave you was the Final Stretch Goal but then you smashed it with 30 hrs to spare, so now we feel like we need to give you a Final-Final Stretch Goal. It’s kinda like this Final Stretch Goal was a sub-boss Stretch Goal and now you’ve gotta battle the Big-Bad-Evil-Guy Stretch Goal, so without further ado…

$100,000 - THE ULTIMATE FINAL STRETCH GOAL

Table Titans Game Tokens added to ALL PHYSICAL REWARD TIERS!

 

100 Monsters, Heroes, Traps, and Treasures, from the Table Titan’s own Fallen Veil campaign setting. This set will include all of the monsters and NPCs from both the Table Titans Terror of Haverford and the NEW Adventure Module that was just unlocked as part of this Kickstarter. There will also be a whole slew of additional minis that you can use for any of your home-brew adventures.

Printed in full-color, on thick cardstock, in a standard RPG scale, and ready to adorn your next play-session’s battlemap. These cardboard minis are exactly what the DM ordered!

We know it's a big push but you've been asking us to make Table Titans minis for a while now and we're confident that together we can get it done. So spread the word and remember: Titans Never Say Die!

Last Week: Add-Ons + Final Stretch Goal
3 months ago – Tue, Nov 29, 2016 at 09:34:57 PM

ADD-ONS ARE HERE!

It’s fair to say that you probably know what you want better than we do. Which is why any items from this Kickstarter, as well as some items from our last Kickstarter, are also available a la carte (that's French)!

If You’re a New Backer

Simply pick the reward tier you'd like, and then add the amount listed in the chart below for any items you'd like to "add-on" to your pledge.

If You’ve Already Backed

Visit the Table Titans V2 project page and click the blue “Manage” button that appears next to your pledge amount. On the next page, select "Update your pledge," and then add the amount listed in the chart below for any items you'd like to "add-on" to your pledge.

Once the campaign is over, we'll use powerful BackerKit Wyzards and their magical Surveys to ask you which add-on items you wanted, and voila (more French) you'll get exactly the combination of rewards you desire!

$75,000 Final Stretch Goal - Table Titans Color Quest: A Color-Your-Own Adventure

Probably the most requested product of the last two years of us doing conventions has been a Table Titans coloring book. While it would be really easy for us to take a bunch of our comic art, drop Steve Hamaker’s amazing colors off, slap it in a book, and call it done… we wanted something more.

As we fiddled with the idea and started prototyping, it morphed from a simple coloring book into a Color-Craft-RPG-Adventure… thingie. And let us tell you, we’ve never been so excited about a Color-Craft-RPG-Adventure-Thingie before. Ladies and Lords, we give you Table Titans Color Quest: A Color-Your Own Adventure!

If we are able to reach our $75,000 Stretch Goal,  ALL Reward Tiers will receive a copy of Table Titans Color Quest (digital copies for digital tiers, digital and physical copies for reward tiers with tangible goods).

So grab those add-ons, up those pledges, and help us spread the word about the last week of the Table Titans V2 Kickstarter. Together we can get this done!

EU, AU, & CA Friendly Shipping Now Available!
3 months ago – Fri, Nov 25, 2016 at 11:39:38 PM

If you’re a Backer from outside the United States, we’ve got good news for you! We’ve secured partnerships with foreign shipping agents and have been able to dramatically reduce our International Shipping fees. In addition, we’re going to cover any additional customs as part of your pledged shipping costs.

You’ll notice a whole new set of Reward Tiers with ★ INTL SHIP in the title. These Reward Tiers feature the same rewards as their counterparts with the addition of new International Shipping options.

I’m already an International Backer! What should I do?

Visit the Table Titans V2 project page and click the blue “Manage” button that appears next to your pledge amount. On the next page, select "Update your pledge," and then change your selection to the Reward Tier of the same value featuring ★ INTL SHIP in the Reward Tier title. When you do this, you’ll have a whole new set of shipping options at much reduced rates!

I’m not a Backer yet, but I’d like to be. How do I get the best International Shipping Rates?

There are two versions of each Reward Tier. Make sure to choose a tier featuring ★ INTL SHIP in the title to get the best International Shipping rates we can offer.

Won't this reduce the total pledged amount? What about our sweet, sweet Stretch Goals!?

It's true! Since Kickstarter calculates a project's pledged amount as a combination of reward and shipping, it does mean that our total pledged amount will go down as International Backers update their pledges. As such, it's going to be harder to unlock new Stretch Goals. But we love a good challenge and Titans never say die!

With your help, we can spread the word around the globe. Let potential Backers know that the Table Titans V2 Kickstarter has EU, AU, and CA friendly shipping and that they too can become a Titan!

Week 2 Recap + NEW STRETCH GOALS!
3 months ago – Fri, Nov 18, 2016 at 06:38:37 PM

Listen, you are all amazing. We haven’t even had a chance to put together this recap of last week and you’ve already smashed one of the Stretch Goals that was supposed to be new. So, be to be safe, we’re prepping next week’s post now :P

Okay, let’s recap Week 2 and take a look at our next Stretch Goals!

GOALS UNLOCKED LAST WEEK!

Table Titans Moleskine®-STYLE Adventure Journal

This was our first big goal and we’re thrilled that you helped us get here. We started work on the Adventure Journals this week and we’ve got a correction to our last update that we need to make. In talking to Moleskine, we’ve been made aware of the fact that we can’t actually use the Moleskine brand name, since we’re not an official license. So from now on we’re going to have to call them Moleskine-STYLE Table Titans Adventure Journals. This doesn’t really change the product but we want to stay above board with all our manufacturers and in the sprit of goodwill we wanted to make everyone aware.

All Books Signed by Scott Kurtz

Scott's gotta get the old sharpie ready because he's got to sign each and every physical book from any tier of the Kickstarter!

Pinup Gallery

We’re extra excited about this one. Having other artist interpret your characters is such a treat. We’ve already got artist hard at work on their pinups and Tavis Maiden was kind enough to make a time-lapse video so you can see his work in action!

We'll be posting more Pinups as we get them!

NEW STRETCH GOALS

$57,500 - Spot Gloss

The Hardcover Editions of Table Titans Vol 2 are exclusive to the Kickstarter so we want to add as many features as we can. A spot gloss is a little element with a big affect. It’s the first of many of these minor treatments that we’d like to get added to make comic tomes really shine.

$60,000 - Concept Art

Before we start work on a season of Table Titans we take a look at the characters and locations and go through a few rounds of development. Val, Darby, and Alan all had major shifts between volumes 1 and 2, and Darius’ in-game persona was entirely new. We’ve also got some huge set-pieces this season with Castle Adbar and the Underdark. We’d love to add a section showing how they all came into their own and what inspired us.

$62,750- Process Section

The longer we work on Table Titans the more artists get involved. Table Titans Vol 2 was the first time Brian Hurtt came onto the book. He helped take the story from script to page with his layouts. In this section we’d like to take a look at the entire process of making Table Titans, from start to finish. You’ll see pages of script, layouts, inks, Steve Hamaker's colors, how we cut the comic up for the web, and put it back together for the book. It’s a process-junkie’s paradise!

$68,500 - Bonus Print & Sticker Sheet

“Wait a minute,” you say! “You haven’t actually SHOWN us the initial print set or sticker sheet.” Well, this is true. To be honest, we’d planned to use the art for the Print Sets as promotion for the slow weeks of the Kickstarter. But those slow weeks haven't come because you’ve all done such an amazing job of helping us promote Table Titans V2!

We’re still putting the sticker sheets together, but they’ll be 8.5” x 11” premium vinyl sheets featuring all your favorite Table Titans characters from the last two volumes of the comic! Once we’ve got the finished sheets we’ll post them here .

In the meantime here are the three pieces of art that will be included in the Print Sets, plus the BONUS print that’ll be included when we unlock this Stretch Goal! Each will be printed on it’s own sheet, and easily frame-able.
