Just launched my new campaign for "A Single Day and Night of Misforutne".

Artist Will Deonne takes you on a journey to rediscover the legend of Atlantis and the events that led to its demise.

"But afterwards there occurred violent earthquakes and floods; and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the earth, and the island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea."-Plato, Timaeus/Critias

A Single Day and Night of Misfortune chronicles all the events leading up to Plato's dialogues. Building upon this lost history, I want to take you into a world where the Kingdom of Atlantis is at its peak. The current Emperor is in the 7th year of his reign and every thing seems to be in line with their lavish lifestyle. Or so it seems...

You'll follow the Emperor as power leads to greed resulting in the freeing of an envious demon, dating from the time Poseidon himself, that sought to destroy Atlantis long ago. You'll see power struggles, consequences of lust, betrayal of family, battles for the throne, the threats of the creatures from the North, and the birth and growth of the Emperors three sons.

I have mixed feelings about this one.

As soon as I opened this thread, and saw the middle section of that top image (the one with the guy wearing an orange helmet and his mouth wide open), I developed an immediate desire to pledge in support of this Kickstarter project.

But, after visiting the Kickstarter page for this project and the blog linked to, below, the urge to pledge was heavily subdued.

The top image hit me with energy and vigor. I'm thinking, "Oh, Hell yeah!"

But, then what I encountered did not build upon that initial feeling. Others may feel differently, of course, but that's how I felt.

On a separate note, aside from that, I was doing some web browsing about Kickstarter tips, this morning, and I came across some tips by Tyler James (of ComixTribe), with at least one tip that immediately came to mind, when I went to your Kickstarter page.

Here's the link to those Kickstarter tips:

In particular, take a look at Tip # 6. The Play button lands atop the text on display on the project image, obscuring part of your text.

Thanks for the feedback. I've updated my Kickstarter. Makes sense. Good links!
