The GallantFunding program from Gallant Knight Games is a webstore based “crowdfunding” solution that allows Gallant Knight Games to gauge the potential popularity of upcoming products in a manner similar to existing crowdfunding, while maintaining full control of the process.
How does GallantFunding work?
Honestly, it’s pretty much like buying something from our webstore. You select the format you want from the dropdown (PDF, Print or Print+PDF), click the “Add to Cart” button above, and just checkout like normal!
You can even check out and purchase other items from our webstore when you GallantFund!
You’ll be charged at the time you check out for the GallantFunded product, as well as estimated shipping, and that’s all you’ll pay. Down the road, you just get the product.
If we raise the selected amount, we’ll produce the item! If we don’t, we’ll either refund everyone (the least likely option) or find a solution that still gets you the product (the most likely outcome – as any amount raised towards our goals gets us closer).
This structure is currently a limitation of how our webstore processes orders, but we’re working on a solution to be more flexible down the line.
All our shipping currently originates in the US. We’re working on finding better international solutions, but for now, everything ships from the US. Our books are generally printed in the US (with a few minor exceptions), and we ship them to you via whatever shipping option you select when you check out.
On products where the digital product is done prior to release, when you check out with GallantFunding, you’ll get the PDF within two business days. You’ll receive both a download in the GKG webstore, as well as a link to redeem a free DriveThruRPG copy (this process is currently manual, so we’re trying to find a good solution in the long term.)
On products where the PDF is not done prior to GallantFunding, we’ll send it as soon as it’s available to you.
Our Promise & Guarantee
For us, in many ways, this is uncharted waters. The world is changing and we’re trying to change with it. As a small, creative, and niche business, we’re doing our best to change in advance. GallantFunding is a new process, with new concerns, issues, and problems we haven’t anticipated yet, that will crop up to surprise us. However, we’re committed to dealing with them.
GKG has produced over 100 physical books and products, ran over 25 crowdfunding campaigns, and Alan (our founder) has managed dozens more as a freelancer.
You can rest assured, if there is one thing we know how to do, it’s get you the product.
We make mistakes, we’re not perfect. We are the first to own that. But we always strive for open, ethical, and honest communication, and we try to do better every day than we did the day before.
