A Real Sword from Might & Magic VI

$5,200 goal

Campaign created 10 days ago
Ever since I was a kid, I always was a huge fan of Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven. It's an old PC game from 1998 where you play as four adventurers who lost their hometown due to a demonic invasion.

Here is the intro which preludes the gameplay:


I am a hardcore fan of this game in particular, as it left an impression on  me from a young age. I have also had the privilege of interviewing of the game's developers, Tim Lang. You can find the interview I recorded with him here:


I have always wanted to own a sword in my home and it would mean the world to not only me but the various Might and Magic communities that exist out there on the internet.

I am a streamer on Twitch, known as Sibernethy. I am currently raising funds through streaming and through your generosity, I plan on working with a REAL blacksmith who actually makes swords. He is also a streamer on Twitch, so you will get to see the process in which such a thing is made.

His name is Wickedbowie and we've discussed the details of manufacturing costs and air travel expenses that go towards the making and retrieving of the sword in question.

Yes, I am getting a custom-made, real-life replica of the Warrior Sword from Might and Magic VI, and here's a picture of it:

Imagine this sword made on Twitch by an actual blacksmith. It's glorious but highly expensive, which is why I need YOUR help in funding what will be an object of huge sentimental value to not just me but the Might and Magic fanbase as well.

The goal is currently $5200 and the costs will be broken down as follows:

$2500-3000 for the sword itself
$2000 for air travel and other expenses.
$200 as a buffer to cover GoFundMe's fees.

The money will not be withdrawn until the goal is met because I want it to be safely tucked away here until it's ready to be used. I'm prepared to wait quite a while for this to happen but you can help shorten the time it takes with even a small contribution.

I live in Idaho and the blacksmith who will be crafting this fine item lives in Georgia (currently).

Please help me fund this dream because I also intend to show the developer I interviewed in the video above, this treasured memory of a great game.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Now, just to put things in perspective:

This isn't going to happen all at once unless by some extreme stroke of luck. Rather, it's going to happen a little at a time. Don't lose heart if the campaign doesn't start climbing towards its goal right away. This is going to take some time, but it's worth waiting for.
