Project Update: All Pins Unlocked + Finale Concert LIVE @ *3:15pm* ET + New Dice Towers/Free Book Sketches

Edit: The concert livestream is at *3:15pm ET* (not 4:15pm ET as originally mentioned in the title)!

Hi backers,

WE DID IT! We passed $20,000 in funding and unlocked the final pin! All pin designs are now unlocked!



I wanted to share 3 quick updates as we count down the final hours until 1pm PT/4pm ET today!

You're invited to a livestream finale party + concert!


At 3:15pm ET I'm going live on the campaign page and YouTube to count down the final minutes! I'll be answering chat questions and performing some of my original geek comedy songs, including a new tune only a few patrons have heard.

I hope you'll join me for an hour as we celebrate the successful funding of the campaign!




(Almost) All Books Signed + Sketched

If you're adding books to your pledge, please note that I'll be signing and either doing quick sketches or inscriptions in all books with one exception: The Story Engine Anthologies being shipped to backers in the UK or EU will likely not be signed/sketched.

You can add-on books via the add-ons section. Unfortunately, I won't have the opportunity to personalize the sketches or inscriptions, but every book will get one (with the exception above)!

New dice towers added to the add-ons!

I've added a few more dice towers designs to the add-ons. If you haven't seen them before, I partnered with a small game accessories laser cutter in Ottawa to design some original collapsible dice towers. They're very handy and a lot of fun!



Here's the complete catalog of designs now available:




Visit the add-ons if you'd like to add these to your pledge!

Project Update: Thanks so much!

I'm over the moon! We finished fully funded with all stretch goals unlocked thanks to 387 backers raising just over $23,000!

And Pintopia as a whole brought together 23,130 backers to raise $973,175!



Thank you to everyone who pledged, shared a link, dropped in on a livestream, or collaborated! I'm grateful to all the people who made this amazing initiative happen.

There will be more updates in the coming weeks as we open the pledge manager so you can choose your pins, confirm your add-ons, and provide your shipping details! And I'll be working on getting all 25+ pins into production.

In the meantime, let me say thank you one more time for all your support! If you missed the livestream, you can catch the replay here.

Hi everyone!

I realized just after posting the last update that I put the correct time in the update body the WRONG time in the title.

We're going live in 40 minutes at *3:15pm* ET! (I live in the Atlantic timezone and forgot to adjust!)

You can watch on YouTube, or Facebook, or the campaign page!




See you soon!

PROJECT UPDATE

Project Update: Final 24 hours, final stretch goal, final pin, FINAL COUNTDOWN!

Hello backers!

Whoo, what a whirlwind of a campaign it's been!

We're heading into the final 24 hours and we've unlocked all but the FINAL stretch goal: the Nat 1 Smackdown pin (by special guest Shen)!


I'm especially excited to unlock this design because Shen designed the shape to pair with the little 1 HP "Still Good" guy! In fact, all 3 of his pins tell a little story of a guy who calculated that he was going to get hit, and then did!

I would love to unlock this design before the campaign wraps up so we can produce all 25 designs!

There are a few things you can do help us get there:
  • Share the campaign link on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, or wherever fine D&D memes are found: ttps://www.backerkit.com/c/projects/peter-chiykowski/tabletop-rpg-and-d-d-pins
  • Check out the add-ons, which include collapsible dice towers and books.
  • Increase your pledge. Now that we've unlocked so many pins, there's a TON OF VALUE in the $150 pledge level for 10 pins (which includes free US, UK, and Canadian shipping) and the $295 ALL THE PINS pledge level (which includes free worldwide shipping). See all pledge levels here!

It's a great way to pick up all the holiday gifts you'll ever need for your gaming group for a great price!


By the way, I just realized that there was a pricing error on the 3 pin add-on, which was was supposed to be priced at $45 like the 3-pin pledge level. That's now been updated!

Lastly, I wanted to share a few D&D-themed comics I worked on with my frequent webcomic collaborator Aaron Lenk! Back in 2021 we sketched out some ideas for a comic about dice playing D&D in their spare time, and I thought I'd share a few of the test strips we worked on!


Thanks so much for all your support heading into the final hours!

Project Update: 2 Weeks Left, 2 Stretch Goals Left + Highlighting Weird Works + D&D Comics

Hi Backers,

We're only one week into the campaign and we've already unlocked all but 2 pin designs. Amazing!

Thank you for your support and enthusiasm, and to everyone who has been helping spread the word!

If you'd like to help continue boosting the signal, you can share the launch announcements on Twitter and Facebook!


I'm particularly excited to reach the Nat 1 Luck Smash pin because it's designed to work on its own OR pair with the 1 HP "Still Good" pin Shen designed!


In other news, I wanted to highlight another pin project I thought you'd all like: Let's Get Weird Pins by Weird Works!



I've been browsing through Pintopia and discovering so many lovely projects, and I found these pins to be both UTTERLY DELIGHTFUL and also OF INTEREST TO TTRPG FANS! The designs are by Bee Ho of Weird Works, a tabletop games and accessories company based in Seattle and LA.

Please go check out their project! The Goblin Mode pin is especially wonderful because it has a built-in slider.

Also, please check out my pin cross-collab partner David Malki of Wondermark! If you pledge both our projects you'll get a freebie pin from each of us!



Lastly, I wanted to leave you with the finished version of the comics I drew during the launch livestream!


And then this little number, which began as a notebook concept so stupid I just had to draw it:


Thanks so much for following along, and thanks for helping me unlock 23 of 25 pins! ❀️❀️❀️

Project Update: Holy Smokes, One Heckuva First Day

Hello backers!

Wow, thank you for an absolutely incredible first day on this project!

It's been 7 years since I launched an illustration-based project, and some of these pins have existed in notebooks for 5+ years, so it's been both a long time coming and incredible rush to share these designs with you all and see the response!

Speaking of which: we fully funded and smashed through 9 stretch goals!




And we're well on our way to the next stretch goal: unlocking a 2nd pin design by Shen at $10,000! The little 1 HP "Still Good" guy is such a delightful little hero to root for.


There are still over 24 hours for new backers to claim the early bird mimic pin, so if you know anyone who likes D&D humor, please consider sharing the campaign with them. I'd love to see this project continue to grow and for new designs to get unlocked over the next 3 weeks.

And if you haven't already checked it out, my cross-collaboration pin pal is David Malki! (Wondermark)! If you back both of our projects for any physical tier, you'll get a bonus pin from each of us, so please go check out his delightful designs!


Thanks again for all your support!

Peter
