The global COVID-19 pandemic has delayed our projects and we need your help to finish them so we can support Wellchild UK

by Craig Teal in Edenthorpe, England, United Kingdom

Thank you for stopping by.

As with all small businesses in the UK , the corvid-19 pandemic has hit my business pretty hard.

We have several projects planned for this year which would have provided work for our talented team of artists, filmmakers and game designers as well as supporting the Wellchild UK and Duncarron Medieval Village charities. 

Jack and the Beanstalk Board Games

Our first objective was to be the launch our first children's tabletop game based on the Jack and Beanstalk fairy tale. 

This game was designed to help bring attention to charities that help and support children with life limiting illnesses, such as Jack Kirsopp, on whom the game is based.

You can read Jack’s full story here - https://www.facebook.com/JLkirsopp/ 

As one of our objectives for this project we have pledged to donate 50% of the profits from each board game to Wellchild UK.

The Chronicles of Ollundra 

The other 50% of the profits would go towards funding our next project: The “Heroes of Ollundra” miniatures game and the short film “The Tale of Two Fathers”, both of which are set in my “Chronicles of Ollundra” fantasy setting.

Mock up of the game for play testing using a scenery set supplied by Battle Systems - https://shop.battlesystems.co.uk/

The Heroes of Ollundra game allows players to create an individual or band of heroes or villains to battle against or alongside other players in a variety of game modes. The game modes will include a battle royale, team death matches, competitive dungeon bases and many more.   

“The Tale of Two Fathers” tells the story of a father who must face the wrath of a legendary assassin when his son abducts the assassin’s daughter in a moment of drunken bravado.

We were planning to film interior and exterior shots at Duncarron Medieval Village in Scotland, which is a registered charity itself. The loss of educational trips and revenue brought about by the outbreak will be hurting them too, and the exposure and, more importantly, the money we could give them would help keep this great project running. You can find more details about them here: https://www.facebook.com/duncarron/ or support them further at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/education-through-living-history 

Finally, as Games Workshop have shut down for now we have found our sales have slowed down. To help combat this we have added some special perks to the campaign where supporters will be able to receive a special discount on any order that they place with us.

Who will the crowdfunding campaign help?

This campaign is aimed to help Composite Games create and publish its games, by helping us do this we will be able to pay for the final art work for the game and story book, audio book recording and the initial print run of the game.

In addition we will be able to pay for the use of the Duncarron location for filming and help with the upkeep and development of the site, produce and film the short film "the tale of two fathers" and develop the art, components and miniatures for the Heroes of Ollundra game.

Why are we running the campaign?

As the corona virus out break has caused our sales potential to slow we have had to slow down we have had to pause our projects which has subsequently restricted the income to the team of talented people involved with our projects.

The above-mentioned projects would have taken us to the end of the year and benefited all of the people and charities involved.

So please have a look at our rewards by purchasing items from us on a delayed basis. This will not only boost our budget towards our projects and help keep us afloat, but also help support other businesses and charities that have been affected during this difficult time.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
