Prelude - Book of Beginnings

About Prelude

After years of conflict, a fragile peace has spread across the land of Veratar. Yet, even in times of peace adventure can be found.

Prelude is the story of a famous explorer named Solan. After making one seemingly minor discovery, Solan experiences a series of events that begin to reveal a complex mystery.

Through a series of postcard-like messages, Solan tells a tale involving wild beasts, a secret organization, ancient codes and a white key.

Little does Solan know that his journey is just the beginning of an epic story spanning time and space.


Growing up in a large family meant not much money to go around, but my parents made sure we spent lots of time reading, drawing, painting... you know, using our imaginations.

I knew from a young age that I wanted to have a creative profession and now I work as a designer. Yet, more than anything I knew I wanted to tell stories, both from a visual and written standpoint.

That's why I created Prelude. Hopefully it's the first of many stories I will tell.


Prelude is a professionally printed book. Each book comes signed and includes one Iconica Game Card.
