Adventure Post Kick Starter Now Live and 29% Funded, Still on the First Day! Weekly Table Top Adventure with Role Play feel VIA Postcard!

Adventure Post: A Path of Self-Learning by Shawn Michael Hescock and Stile Teckel (aka Eric Higby) — Kickstarter

Hello Everyone! This is Stile Teckel, the co-developer of Adventure Post and owner of Caveloot.com. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be working on this somewhat innovative idea and the possibilities the future could bring for it. I’m all tingly with excitement and nervousness!


Adventure Post: A Path of Self-Learning by Shawn Michael Hescock and Stile Teckel (aka Eric Higby) — Kickstarter

It was only a few weeks ago Shawn and I started discussing it and it is amazing to me we have already launched a Kickstarter! This is possible in part due to the number of many talented people working together to make this project happen. Shawn himself has been a machine of long continual hours, daily, to bring this Kickstarter live to you on the New Year!

It’s my hope that if funded, we can eventually have multiple Adventure Post mailings going out per week, for different game types and genres, using different people for Art, Design, Story, and, Map Making, as well as the Mechanics System. It could be a great way for new and established artists, developers, writers, and more to participate in a fun project and have their work be seen by many. Possibly even helping lead to other opportunities for many folks!

How cool of a concept could this be for introducing people to different systems and mechanics for other games? WOW! What excites me most about this project is the potential future for collaboration among many people in the gaming world that create, in a plethora of mediums.

With a low-cost Postcard going out each week, each week there is a possibility to spotlight someone’s art, game mechanics, story writing, and more. Thereby introducing the subscribers to a huge range of ideas, concepts, art styles, gaming styles, and gaming systems, on an ongoing basis, in a way that is cost effective. Based on those experiences you would then know whose products to invest in!

Shawn and I have stayed up many hours discussing all of the possible ideas we both have for Adventure Post and things that can be done, with the general concept of a Postcard-sized weekly game mailing. I think we already have tossed out years of ideas to run with. Whether we are going to be able to proceed with ANY of those, will in large part depend on how this initial project does.

We are each excited about the others ideas, but we each, I think, also have our favorites. For me, the future potential to work with numerous independent creators, as a way to bring the work of lots of talented people, to a large audience, in a cost-effective and fun manner, excites me the most!

I also though can’t miss the opportunity this Postcard based mailing, offers in terms of someone who leads a very busy life or travels a lot. Your Postcard comes in the mail, right? You’re busy, on the go, spending times on planes, trains, and automobiles and what have you. So at some point, you have a little time, maybe a lunch, maybe while at the airport.

BAM! SHUFFLE! SCAN!! ROLL! You’re playing a mini-game, that’s part of a larger adventure, and all you had to carry with you was a Postcard as well as a few very basic game supplies which are small and portable… we send you as part of your first mailing!

In public? Even better, maybe someone will notice, start talking to you, be into gaming, and you make a new friend as well as getting the project another subscription!

Your groups play session get’s canceled (cause we all know that NEVER happens)? You’ll still at least have Adventure Post for a fix!

Finally, while there are a lot of things that excite me about Adventure Post, the last one I want to ramble on about, is the obvious advantage this is for you Tabletop Game Masters!

I myself have been running Roleplay Games as a GM for about 35 years (or doing my best to do so anyway). I have always been a huge fan of game accessory and aids. The GM in me looks at Adventure Post and sees this as a great way to get material for your own campaigns.

You have artwork, maps, story, and more, developed by professionals and lifelong gamers, which you could use in a number of ways. You’ll get ideas, and create, through the exploration of someones else’s ideas. Use what we send you, either parts, or all of it, for your own game.

I hope you think this has as much potential as we do and want to become a supporter. The support we have already been shown is extremely exciting to me. We are keeping the pricing for this as close to cost as is possible in order to get this project off the ground and grow it into whatever potential it may have. To do that though we need as much support as we can get to not only get funded but possibly exceed the goal! We also have some great stretch goals!

The idea came about one fine day while Shawn and Stile were casually chatting on the Book of Faces about absolute randomness. Stile had this idea about sending postcards that have mini games on the back as a marketing thing… one thing led to another and that idea has evolved into Adventure Post.

Inventory and Pricing Updates

Hello Everyone,

We have some new pricing and Inventory updates we need to put in place for a few of our brands. This update will also include the addition of some new products!

In the interim, we have disabled all of the affected brands from being displayed in the store. As we update each item we will re-activate it, so expect to start seeing products being back quickly. Uncertain how long it will take to have everything relisted but will get done as fast as possible.

This update includes the brands:
Epic Armory
Ancient Armor
and Dragon Forge Leather.

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we do these updates!

Handmade Stone Dice Now in Stock at Caveloot.com

You read that correctly STONE DICE!

These Dice Rock!!

Let’s be honest. You may find a lot of loot during a typical campaign, but it isn’t quite so often that you find real treasure. These hand-cut, hand-engraved stone polyhedrals, excavated from the very womb of Mother Earth and worked into dazzling terrestrial jewels? These are real treasure.

They’re the perfect display piece for avid collectors, but still tough enough for regular gameplay (though we do suggest a dice tray). Tucked into a soft velvet bag you’ll find 7 handcrafted stone polyhedrals in the classic loadout: d4, d6, d8, d10, d00, d12, and d20.

And though the dice may come in a set, each piece is its own unique work of art. Every face distinct from the next, featuring the natural striations, layers, and even trapped detritus that characterizes each stone. Additionally, because these dice are hand-cut and hand-engraved, please allow for minor variations in shape and number placement.
