The Kickstarter Report: Boonzy Arts Candles’ Wheel of Flame Candle Set with Embedded Metal Dice (GMs, This Is for You!)

Recently, Fanboy Comics had the great fortune of interviewing Lauren Rock, founder of Boonzy Arts Candles, which makes hand-poured, soy candles with geeky, bookish, and pop-culture-y themes!  From the Twin Peaks-inspired Double R Diner Mug Candle to the “Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.” Candle inspired by Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Jean-Luc Picard, Boonzy Arts’ candles evoke wonderfully geeky memories of our favorite movies and TV shows with their thoughtful and gorgeous designs and their fantastically fragrant scents.  For Rock, this venture is a labor of love with mass appeal, given the incredible quality and marketability of the candles.  Plus, with more than 10 themed candles already available for sale since the company’s April 2015 launch and a plethora of new candle scents and designs currently in progress, there is no stopping Boonzy Arts!  In fact, Boonzy Arts recently announced its latest innovation, the Wheel of Flame Candle Set that was designed with the tabletop gamer in mind, as each candle in the set represents a different terrain you might visit on a campaign!  So, where’s the rub?  Running your own small business is challenging and expensive.  In order to ramp up production for Boonzy Arts and the Wheel of Flame Candle Set to a greater scale, Rock recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to assist in raising necessary capital for her endeavors.  Independent creators deserve our support and admiration for their ingenuity and drive to pursue their dreams, and I hope that you will join me in learning more about Boonzy Arts’ Kickstarter campaign to lend your support to this fantastic organization!

As the focal point of the crowdfunding campaign, the Wheel of Flame Candle Set will be perfect for the Game Master that loves including those added touches to enhance their players’ gaming experience.  With three candles included (Lair of the Dragon: with a musky and smoky scent; Fortress of Sorcery: with a spicy sandalwood scent with hints of olive and cypress; and Forest of Enchantment: with an earthy oak and cedarwood scent with notes of eucalyptus), game masters can light a new candle every time they venture into a different realm, setting the stage — and the mood — with an evocative scent.  In addition, illustrator Wilson Swain is drawing the labels for the candles with the whimsical, vintage feel of old-school D&D artwork. 

As an added bonus, each candle includes a metal die from Norse Foundry embedded in the wax. As your candle burns down, a beautifully crafted and satisfyingly heavy D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, or D20 will emerge from the molten goop. The different dice are randomly placed in the candles, so you won’t know which die you’re getting until your candle starts to burn down.  (Yay for surprises!)

Of course, as with each of Boonzy Arts’ candles, the Wheel of Flame Candle Set may be enjoyed by all, even those who have not yet experienced the fun of tabletop gaming!  All of Boonzy Arts’ candles feature gorgeous artwork and glorious scents that will enhance the mood and atmosphere in your home and make perfect gifts for friends and family.

Be sure to visit Boonzy Arts’ Wheel of Flame Candle Set Kickstarter page, and don’t forget to check out the backer rewards, which include postcards with original artwork, selected candles, and the entire Wheel of Flame collection! The Kickstarter campaign will close on Sunday, August 23rd, so be sure to donate soon!
