I am getting some feedback from some people who know these things… and I am fairly certain I will be replacing a nearly all of the artwork in the book.
This means I have some expenses to take care of… and it means that the Kickstarter will be delayed somewhat as I get a handle on how long it will take to get some 150 pieces of art, minus what I figure I can keep from the original books (i.e., 1e/2e and 3e).
Ultimately — the Kickstarter will not begin on 12 September as I had originally planned. I would rather have things ready to go than to run into another issue like I did last time.
When the Kickstarter goes live, the pledge levels will be:
$ 1 — Charlatan: receives my thanks.
$ 5 — Astrologer: my thanks and will be listed in the book as a supporter of the project.
$ 25 — Gladiator: as Astrologer + a PDF copy of the book.
$ 50 — Sorcerer: as Astrologer + a soft-cover print
$ 75 — Assassin: as Astrologer + a hard cover print
$ 75 — Bounty Hunter: as Astrologer + a soft-cover print + a set of custom dice + dice bag.
$100 — Necromancer: as Astrologer + a hard-cover print + a set of custom dice + dice bag.
$100 — Thaumaturge: as Astrologer + a soft-cover print + three sets of custom dice + dice bag.
$125 — Mystic: as Astrologer + a hard-cover print + three sets of custom dice + dice bag.
$250 — Paladin: as Astrologer + a hard cover print + three sets of custom dice + dicebag + one-of-a-kind Arcanum-themed dice tower.
The plan is to launch the Kickstarter on September 12, 2016…. at noon Central Time.
Come be a part of the dream.
I have added a new page for the Kickstarter campaigns I am backing.
One of the reasons I have added this page is for THE ICE KINGDOMS. This is a campaign setting that takes a Viking mindset and places it into a Robert E. Howard-esque world of adventure. The campaign world looks awesome, and the artwork is truly invoking of an old-school RPG feel. Truly looking forward to this.
As a game designer that plans to use Kickstarter, I think it is important to show that I am also a customer that supports Kickstarter campaigns. And the campaigns I support… if you are so inclined… I invite you to support as well. Please feel free to e-mail me with other campaigns in which you think I might be interested.
