    Along with the benefits of the $35 reward level (listed below for good measure), you also get to have your contribution to the List of Random Magical Effects illustrated in full color! After the campaign ends AND primary fulfillment is complete, you will work with me and one of the artists I select to bring your idea to fruition. See Update #4 for details, but the big caveats are that your submission and the art for it must be 1) Fantasy-appropriate and 2) Not illegal, copyright-infringing, hateful, obscene, etc. Inquire before backing if you are unsure! Also note that, based on the commission rates of the artists I work with, this level will likely only include one full-body character in detail, or two-three partial or smaller, less detailed characters, so plan your submission accordingly!

    Along with the benefits of the $35 reward level (listed below for good measure), you also get to design a custom deck using any of the available card art. Want a unique deck for your home-brewed fantasy campaign? Love the art of the SciFi deck, but want to incorporate more elements of cosmic horror? Build it how you want, and then order as many copies as you want at-cost. You do the writing, starting with any deck's text as a baseline if you wish. I will offer assistance and feedback while you work, help revise your text, and maintain final editorial control (I won't print hateful, illegal, or X-rated content, for example), and will set up, format, and test-print the deck so you can get the same quality results as the official ones! The delivery time here is estimated at one additional year; if you finish writing quickly, it may be much shorter, but if it takes you more than six months to finalize your text, it may take more than a year to get your deck completed. Please inquire before pledging if you have any questions or concerns. If you back at this tier but then discover you cannot abide by my editorial restrictions or I otherwise cannot meet your expectations, I reserve the right to cancel and refund the portion of your pledge above and beyond the $35 reward level, which you will have already received by then, or a portion thereof depending upon how far into the deck creation process we had gone.
