Come check out this week’s batch of Kickstarter and crowdfunding highlights!

Bard Chronicles: D&D Rap Album

I see D&D as a really big, really important part of my life. I grew up black and “gifted” in an area where there weren’t a lot of other people like me.  I LOVED sitting down and jumping into another reality for a while, so when I eventually found D&D you can imagine how hard I fell into that. And now, almost twenty years later, I’m still playing and still DM-ing and I’m more obsessed with storytelling than ever before. One other little skill I’ve picked up between then and now is rapping

This will be an 11-song album. I’m making some of the beats, but I’m also sourcing some from producers whose work I like in order to support them. I’ve plotted out the entire narrative and mapped the song list out start to finish to tell the stories. I’ve [also] prepared shot lists for two music videos, one animated and one live-action. So we’re absolutely giving it our all and we’re inviting you to come along for the ride.

Pledges start at $1 for a digital copy and $15 for a digital copy with character sheets and artwork.
