About Us


Greetings, adventurers! I'm Sean Hallaren, a tabletop gaming fanatic, game master, and designer from Vancouver, Canada. I founded Material Components in 2018 to provide high-quality tabletop goods to discerning roleplayers like you.

Our goal is to solve tabletop gaming problems with innovative, beautiful, and environmentally friendly products. We take pride in producing our products locally, and use materials from recycled or responsible sources wherever possible.

Our first two products, HeroBook and HeroBook GM, raised over CA $400,000 in crowdfunding between 2018 and 2019 from thousands of amazing backers on Kickstarter.
