There are few kickstarters that jump immediately to the "must have" pile... this is one of them!  Congrats Bill!

Sometimes, I wish I had the funds.

But I'm already getting to join Bill Webb and Frog God Games at NTRPG con....for far less than 10k (a bargain at any price, I must say!)

Wow, already 5K in just a few hours.  This is going to absolutely blow up.

This looks great and I will most likely pledge at the $100 level but having to jump to $250 for the bonus module is a bit disappointing. As a collector of your work and proud owner of all previous Rappan Athuk material it's frustrating to know my collection will end up incomplete. Just my 2 cents.

Retail (later) on the book will be >$100. The $250 also includes more stuff. With the faux leather and the textbook binding, we are not making much at $100 (after art, printing etc.). I mostly put the $100 up to make sure we got the funds.

Its unbelievable to me too how much money has been put into these Kickstarter projects.  Its a great sign that the hobby is still alive and kicking.

I'm still stunned by the almost $2 million sunk into the Shadowrun game.

Agreeded.. a lot of those computer games are getting insane $$ ie $1m+.. all from "names" in the industry by the looks.. but still if one of them fails to deliver..

Bill.. do you get 2 coppies of the Bonus Module at the $500 level? seems to read as 1..
also.. since I expect you to reach the $40k mark.. are the bonus modules printed or PDF's?

For everyone that gets a printed book, the bonus modules are printed.
Edit: obviously, this isn't Bill, but it's Matt.

I'm waiting to see how many people get their names immortalized on the gravestones in the Mausoleum. It is, after all, the Dungeon of Graves.  :D

3.5 hours, $16K. This is going to be fairly big, I think.

I'm in!

But I'm not the one who pledged at the $3000 level . . . .   8O

Looks like the goal isn't going to be much of an issue.  Nice going, guys.   :thumleft:

the $250 level is the "collector" level.. gets all the bonus modules.. the $500 level is exactly the same as the $250 with the added benefit of having a name on the tombstone.. $500 allows you to get both versions without getting 2 x $250..

the jump to the $175 to $250 is a lot for just one extra module, but looks a lot better once the bonus modules start being added ($40k and $60k level).. $80k doesn't add much..

A couple of the jumps probably aren't perfect, although we tried hard and really worked this thing over. What's the going price for a t-shirt these days? It's effectively priced at $30 in the jump from $40 to $70. I think that might have been my bad if it's too high a price..... should it have been $25 or is $30 reasonable?
