Here is a pic of the protoype Mad Science Pendant.  I hand-made it from an authentic vacuum tube and various jewelry supplies.  I'm looking for some other things to add, like some gears and other stuff, but I like the basic design.  Each one will be different, and unique.

Campaign is at 52% and there are 13 days to go.  That's still a ways, so I can't afford to slack off.  Come on over and get something cool!

 
Minauros

In command of the armies of the Tyrant as they descend upon Achillea is the being called Minauros. Not a man, not even human, he is a beast created by the Tyrant’s twisted science. More than seven feet tall, incredibly strong, horn-crowned, and all but indestructible, Minauros is a creature out of nightmare.

But beneath his cruelty and violence, something torments him. Why does he cry out in his sleep? What are the memories he cannot quite conjure, and yet cannot put aside? His task is to put down all resistance, to grind the country under his heel until all bow before his master, the Tyrant himself. Yet part of him resists, and so the fate of all may hinge upon the question of whether the beast is, in truth, human.

Campaign is at 50%, but there is still a ways to go.  Come help me make goal!



 
Athena Leonidas

Athena is the daughter of General Leonidas, a respected war hero long retired to his country estates.  Now nineteen years old, Athena has grown up in the countryside, with only a few visits to the city, and mostly she is happy that way.  She loves the easy pace of country life and the friendly people, and she has all the free time she needs to pursue her passion for inventing.

A brilliant and unconventional engineer, she spends a great deal of her time immersed in her experiments with electrical and mechanical devices.  She began by trying to improve her father’s prosthetic arm, and has carried her works to a high degree of proficiency, even if she’s not always restrained by practicality.  People think she is strange for her focus on her hobby, but they tolerate it.

Tall and athletic, she loves to ride and hike when she is not buried in her workshop.  She can be abrupt and difficult to deal with, but she is savagely loyal to her friends and family, and she often demonstrates much more courage than good sense.  Her temper, when roused, can be spectacular.

Born in the aftermath of war and the end of the monarchy, she has been largely indifferent to politics, content with the world as it is so long as it leaves her alone.  But once her country falls under the power of the Tyrant, her unwillingness to be intimidated will lead her inexorably into danger.

The campaign for Beauty and the Blade is off to a slllooowww start.  Come on over and help me get some momentum gong!
