“Game On” is a series in which we examine the companies, creators, and games in crowdfunding. We look at the journey, ideas, and concepts the creators wanted to bring to market with their product.”

Kevin and Megan Fanin are the creators of the DM oddities RPG POTIONS. They came up with the idea for the potions so that people could be healed during role playing games. The potions are meant to be used for healing or other scenarios and you can get potions that are unmarked or ones that are specific. They set up their campaign so that specific colors would be unlocked as they reached through the stretch goals.

Kevin and Megan reached out to Kickstarter as a known source to fund the potions The project was launched on February 5 2019.  They started out their Kickstarter campaign by showing a special box that the potions could be held in as an add on option. The box is a container for the potions but also has a special compartment where you can put dice and cards in the lid. The campaign was almost funded by February 28 and people were able to make the selections about which color of potions that they wanted on the pledge manager. They were able to hit their funding goal and raise $3,170 to support the making of their potions.

The potions are created from a thick glass with a cork lid. They are small enough to be held in your hand and would be easy to conceal under a cloak or to take in a bag. The potion that is inside of them is hard so that the dice don’t fall through into any sort of liquid. Each of the containers come with two dice that can be shaken inside of the glass so that they can determine the effectiveness of the spells that are being used with them. Each of the containers are marked with the kind of potion that is inside them and they are tied with a twine. A optional spell scroll with a description of what is inside the potion and how it can be used can also be included.

The glass containers would only ship during the warm months because the material in side of the glass containers does expand and could potentially break the glass if it were frozen. People were also able to customize scrolls to go inside of the potions. The creators also left instructions on the website for how to make your own scrolls in the updates.
