Rare Elements Foundry Raises over $120,00 through Kickstarter
Posted By:  Jill Claire
Monday, September 8, 2014

Did you know that $260 million dollars was crowdfunded last year to support role playing game startups?

Rare Elements Foundry is taking on a specialized niche in this market by minting fantasy currency. This multibillion dollar industry includes, books, games, figurines, cards, apps, and tons of other merchandise. We saw that all role playing games use some form of money, but lack an overarching or realistic economy. Now imagine in this world there is a common currency that looks real, feels real and is used like real money. But you don’t have to imagine, because we’ve created it. Rare Elements Foundry is diving head first into the innovation of gaming supplements, as a startup like nothing you’ve ever seen.

Role-playing games (RPGs), like Dungeons and Dragons (D&D), have developed a strong and loyal fan base over the course of the last 40 years. Market research conducted at Wizards of the Coast in 1999-2000 indicated that more than 1.5 million people played D&D on a monthly basis, and about 2 million people played all tabletop RPGs combined on a monthly basis. The estimated market value is $1 billion spent on game equipment and books per year. This market continues to grow as tabletop gaming moves into mainstream pop culture.

Rare Elements Foundry is a branch of Osborne Coinage Company, and is overseen by Todd and Jeff Stegman. Our coins and medallions are designed and minted by Osborne Coinage, using the same materials and process as US currency. Rare Elements Foundry will be advancing this 200 year old family run business, keeping the oldest minting company in the nation at top production. We will continue to support local job creation and will also be catering to a unique market, potentially bringing more conventions and trade shows to our city.

Our unique e-commerce company will sell products direct to consumers and retailers, allowing gamers to enhance their role-playing experience. The authentic minting process allows for high quality production value and fine artistic design, which will be our edge over competitors. Rare Elements currency transforms intricately engraved art into beautiful three-dimensional medallions that will endure the test of time. Follow along with our progress at www.rareelementsfoundry.com.

I found myself at a point in my career where it was difficult to connect with others on a personal level - I always had my guard up in order to avoid being taken advantage of.

EO, particularly forum, is a place where we business owners can let their guard down and be real.  It's a place where you know no one is trying to 'take' anything from you.

The people I have met through EO are the highest quality individuals that I have ever come across and I'm proud to call them my peers, mentors and friends.

In EO I've found my people.   I used to feel like I was the only one with this unique set of issues, I quickly discovered that EO-ers from all over the world can relate to me and I with them.

In forum I've got a trusted group of advisors that  I can share anything without judgement in a safe confidential environment. 

I've seen and done things all over the world that I would have never even dreamed of 8 or 9 years ago.

It's amazing to me the different industries and diverse backgrounds that are found in EO. 

The challenges and triumphs of owning a small business bring us all together and create an amazing bond.

Being in professional sports, I wanted to be a part of a exclusive peer to peer group made up of business owners that operated with core values that included leadership growth, non-solicitation and confidentiality.

I found that and more in EO.

I have had exponential growth as a person and a leader not just in my business but as a husband and a father because of my involvement in EO.

EO is a global organization for entrepreneur’s only who are like-minded peers from all over the world eager to connect and who want to learn and grow to become a better leader in all aspects of their life.

I found EO surfing the web to try to find like-minded people to discuss business.  I had no real peer group to have meaningful conversations about business, and in searching the web I stumbled onto the EO Network.  

I attended a "Mock Forum" and after meeting a few of the members I decided to become a part of EO Cincinnati.  The time investment and cost were major concerns.  After being a part of EO for a year I have more time than ever and I have benefited more than 10 times my investment.

I have been a member of EO for 12 years, and it has transformed my life and business, but more importantly it continues to do so.

Imagine a group of men and women who continually meet to learn, grow, and inspire themselves in their businesses, families, and communities, and then having the privilege to be a part of that group!

The R.O.I. for me is so huge it can’t be measured.
