*Note: The Kickstarter Campaign for season two was a success - woohooo! Thank you everyone who followed that month. We are currently reworking and updating this page - There will soon be changes in the goals, rewards, etc. Not big ones, just updated to how our situation is 2019. Stay tuned in the updates.

We want to be able to upload videos and stories to the YouTube Channel Tales of Alethrion! We will use everything we get from the Patreon on improving and making webisodes, YouTube videos and webcomics. There are also plans of making video webcomic episodes like we have seen in the Thug's Life episode.

What is Tales of Alethrion?
The Reward - Tales of Alethrion is an animated non-dialogue fantasy webseries where we follow 8 different character teams in the world of Alethrion. They are all connected to each other's stories mainly because of a mysterious treasure map which is leading to the world's biggest treasure, but not just that... Alethrion also trapped a powerful evil within his magical chest. This immortal monster of greed is just waiting to be found and freed by the unaware adventurers. The Journey is The True Reward!

"Choose Their Path" Episodes :
This is the INTERACTIVE sub series of Tales of Alethrion. We are still following the characters in the universe but in these webisodes we are not focusing on the epic painterly backgrounds and the crazy animations. We are more focusing on making fun stories with our characters letting our audience (you here on Patreon) interact with the characters and story (fx. Choices like A - should they enter the dungeon or B - should they wait for the dragon to come out).

Latest Choose Their Path Episodes - This takes place right after Vito and Wilhelm passes the map on to Mik and Ken. We start out following Sylvia and Tatiana who want to get their hands on the treasure map:

The Patreon
We want to be able to continue the Tales of Alethrion, and keep it available for everyone on our YouTube Channel. So far, this ambitious indie project has been possible because of our awesome backers on previous Kickstarter campaigns. It is really hard to finance a quality series free for all to watch on YouTube. Patreon allows us to keep doing this. That being "Choose Their Path" webisodes as mentioned earlier, where the stories are shaped by your decisions, or webcomics, or videos for the channel.

As a patron you will be informed monthly through insider updates and get access to production material and extras. You will also be able to interact and vote when "Choose Their Path" webisodes are being made. Basically we just really appreciate you being here, so write if you have ideas or have a wish for the project

Thank you for making this a reality!

Our GOALS
So far the patreon's subscription model is set to "per item" , it would be great to set it to "per month" on day in the future, but right now we would rather focus on making quality content and good stories, and if we can keep the uploads consistent then it might change in the future. The main series is the tough one to finance, and therefore Kickstarter has been the main platform for that. This patreon focus on making content and stories on a regular basis so that the channel can stay active and alive. The more patrons the more different kinds of videos and webisodes can be made - since that can improve equipment get more people involved, etc. Here are some updated goals (2019):

     200$: We can maintain the channel (licenses, limited equipment and props)

     600$: Monthly videos! (behind the scenes, tutorials, inspiration, etc.).

     850$:  Tales of Alethrion stories ! (Webcomic, choose their path, world descriptions, etc.)

   1250$: Animated content or Webcomic episode! Either a bonus mini episode, Choose Their Path or make one of the episodes that didn't get funded into a digital comic (which later could turn into an episode like Thug's Life.

   1700$: Regular YouTube videos - we would finally be able to get an editor or camera person on board and set days aside to make the videos during the week instead of in the weekends ;)

   2300$: Guaranteed color on the 1250$ goal

   3300$: same as previous goal but we can make new music and get good voices and sounds for the animations and when it is web comics it can be more regular page uploads.

   4000$: We can change the subscription model to "monthly" instead of "Per Item" since we can then start producing on a monthly basis for the YouTube channel's content, and have a small part time team 

   5000$: Besides being able to improve the quality we will be making a roleplaying game video series in the Tales of Alethrion world with the director Mikkel Mainz as Dungeon Master!

7.500$: Tales of Alethrion main series - We will be able to make mini webisodes. They will come out in chapters and when they are finished they will be put together and make a full episode. It will be a small part time team and a little production, but it is a beginning to get episodes out on a regular basis. (this could also be high quality Choose Their Path episodes or other unfinished story lines or full chapters of a webcomic episode along with YouTube episodes).

10.000$: Besides making the other YouTube videos and content there will be a monthly production happening!  An episode in the ToA main series will be in production and you will be updated every month with the status, artwork, designs and workfiles. 

15.000$: We will be able to have an actual YouTube team! There will be weekly YouTube uploads, meanwhile the main series is being produced (patreon or Kickstarter).

20.000$: Finally we can focus on just making the Tales of Alethrion main series on a monthly basis. If this would last then we would be able to upload a full length quality ToA episode every three months. 

* The money that is not spend will go to making the episodes better (like new music tracks, voices, added animations, etc), pre-production for future webisodes, other YouTube videos (like Animation Jams, World Decriptions, etc.) or new equipment.

Quotes!
Tomm Moore (Director of Song of the Sea and Secret of the Kelts)
“The stories told in the universe of Alethrion are full of visual invention and action as well as lovely character moments, the viewers eyes are constantly dazzled by the next scene as it unfolds. Knowing the guys behind The Reward, I think a series would be an instant classic, with a unique personality all its own.”

Catsuka (Marc Aguesse)
"The Reward was an epic student short-film, full of adventure and bromance and I was very impressed with this new project, Alethrion has a strong background story, and you can feel how much the staff enjoys making this. I love such animation and design where I can feel mixed influences. This is both indie and entertaining, which is rare in animation".
