A big welcome to the place where Reckoning is happening !!!

Reckoning is a scifi series undergoing a conversion from short story form into 3D comic book form, both on screen and as an actually physically printable form using 3D Printing.

Not only will the (special edition) using laser engraving/vacuum forming/3D printing make this a fully accessible comicbook, I suspect it is the first complete scifi series both regularly sighted and the visually impaired can read.

How many scifi series do you know that will be fully accessible?

How many sci-fi comicbook series provide fan printable merchandise for free?

Yup you got it ! Reckoning your new favorite science fiction series does all this and more!!!

Things are already well on the way. Storybooks for parts 1-6 are done, each is a like small semi self contained album, with the only difference that part 1 & 2 have been contracted into one album.

3D models are being produced and over fifty are already released for free under CC license for printing on 3D printers and more are forthcoming.

As the project progresses if things go as expected we'll end up with everything needed for turning the whole series into a series of 3D cartoons as well.

If you have not watched the awesome storyboard creation video below to see how storyboard pages are created I certainly encourage you to use the 3 minutes it takes to get a feel for what is happening.

The video depicts a scene from Operation Vermin and depicts scenes from the battlefield as a protagonist fights his way to a rescue ship and discussions in a ready room.

If you are visually impaired I suggest you check the video anyway even if there is no commentary and only music as it features some neat music setting the mood for the story.

The work on Reckoning is happening in collaboration with a lot of different people, artists, 3D modelers and programmers, from countries like the Faroe Islands, Denmark, England, Argentina, Germany, China, USA, Romania, Bangladesh, Singapore, Mexico and I imagine many more will join.

So as you can see the efforts being put into Reckoning are made by a truly international team just like the members of the protagonist organization TDF it is a truly multicultural with me as a central nexus as a writer, director "actor"/artist kind of personage.

If you can believe it I was even lucky enough to have gotten the thumbs up from a military advisor (who remains anonymous at this time), for the realism with which battle has been described in several chapters - Now that is Pretty Awesome !!!

Reckoning is a science fiction story of suspense, conspiracy, and heroism, sprinkled with high technology, alien species, grand combat and stealthy intrigue. Reckoning is a story seething with corruption and greed all in need to be circumnavigated by our band of brave protagonists of the Terran Defense Force.

The Military Industrial Complex, The Security Consortium and the NWO all play their part in this high paced scifi adventure. The setting is spanning the entire globe and then some.... shall we say to the outskirts of the known, as well as the unknown universe.

What you as a Patron will be getting out of this?

Hold on to your hat and chair, this is where my Patreon page differs from most!

Since this Patreon page is intended as a showcase for the 3D Reckoning comicbook project, by becoming a Patron of it, I feel it is my duty to remind you that you are not purchasing any product, nor any service from me.

Through the posts on this page you will be able to follow the work on this fully accessible 3D comic book.

The Patreon will be featuring the production of not only 3D graphics, but also the 3D Printable models and tactile pages making Reckoning accessible to the visually impaired, making this the probably world first fully accessible comic-book scifi series featuring 3D printable models.

You actually do not have to make any pledges in order to follow what is going on, hence no sale of any product or service is to be perceived through you supporting this Patreon. Becoming a Patreon is simply you stating that you believe comicbooks should be accessible to as many people as possible.

While Patreon will be charging VAT of your donation/your pledge, I have to stress this is not a form of purchase and Patreon only processes the VAT fee out of demands of the EU.

Anything contributed is to be considered as a gift to me, in order to enable me to further my creativity.

You can without making any contribution simply go to this Patreon page and read the posts I make.

Signing up as a Patron is something you do for your own convenience, or conscience and not because you are buying anything from me or making donations per se.

Production of rudimentary 3D poses for panels has begun using a motion-capture suit from the Danish team Rokoko who ran the successful SALTO Kickstarter.

Each chapter is as stated written as an independent little story so the aim is to end up with a small collection of comic books from the Reckoning Universe.

The storyboards for what will be the first 5 comicbooks are locked and 3D production is underway, with a number of models already created.

I think it fair that you get a glimpse of the storyboards without having to dig too far into the Patreon - So here is an example of a rough storyboard of part 5.

I suggest if you are visually impaired, you go to my website and read Chapter 5 Operation Vermin until such time that the tactile pages are available in order for you to get an impression of what is depicted in the storyboard animation below.

The 3D version of the comic will according to plan enable people, to online zip around and zoom around inside frames and not just passively look at pages. Might be including haptic feedback to this version so you can fee the virtual comic as well.

Offline you will have the 3D Printable models and laser engraved/3D printed/vacuum formed pages in addition to the regular comicbooks being produced.

If you want to preview a text draft from the open writing exercise then the first few chapters are available at einarpetersen.com/reckoning.html

Please check out some of the awesome art and models in the posts and on tinkercad.com/users/ebbn2H05qC2 you can find here on Patreon and do get back to me with comments and suggestions.

I would also like to invite you to join the utterly awesome crew of Patrons and people already helping to make Reckoning a huge success.

If you decide to get behind this Patreon I will gift you a copy of my latest copy Implant! while it is not yet accessible for the visually Impaired! the menthods developed through the Reckoning project are laying the groundwork for making this comic accessible as well.

And since I know if you are reading this far you are likely considering a Patronage, this is about your money so how about this guarantee?

To alleviate your fears of making a "bad judgement" in regards to my creativity I am willing to offer you a full, no questions asked money back guarantee!

If you do not like what is happening here and you have been a Patron for 12 consecutive months, you cancel your Patronage before Patreon's 13'th billing cycle and ask me for a refund.

Simple as that!

I will facilitate a full refund ASAP after that.

I am even considering a cyclical renewal of the money back guarantee rolling a year a the time.

I really hope you like what you have seen and read so far about what for me put quite mildly is an amazing project and that you would like to follow along with us on this fantastic journey, as we expand upon the Reckoning universe and the great promise thereof.

And even if you can't afford to pitch in financially - Please help me to spread the word - A tweet, or a post to any other social media is virtually free of charge to you and means the world to the project, so please pitch in and help turn Reckoning into the amazing success it deserves to be!

All the best
