I'm wondering if anyone wants to split the $650 pledge with me.  (I'd be taking the name on the tombstone though)

PM if interested.

I will make my donation from my next paycheck, but before I contributed, I wanted to make sure that my donation will get the accessories I want:

Is it the $100 or $250 donation that provides a pdf, hardcopy, and bonus levels of EITHER S&W or Pathfinder edition?

Thanks!

Ok; pricing journals--figure couple pages of intro--a cool faux-leather foil etched cover, and lined paper? If it pencils--we will consider it. Just got off phone with the printer and am awaiting a rough quote.

What about limited edition (maybe 25 copies made) real leather cover books? I want to sell that $5k and $10k levels for bragging rights!

Grats guys, you made a helluva product the first time around, made it better with a boxed set that still commands a premium price, and are topping it all off with an amazing new edition. Your kickstarter is the first I've ever backed, and it looks like it will be a good one!

P.S. More poster maps! Busting out my Dungeon Tiles for minis is a pain in the butt, and being able to slap down a full color poster map instead is just awesome. I'd look into more poster maps for higher rewards levels, or, just to add in in general. :)

And that sealed it from me. Don't know anything about Rappan Athuk, but $100k of buyers can't be wrong. Hope it's as good as y'all are  predicting.

Kudos to the developers. If there's any doubt there's an Old School Rennaisance going on, this disipates it.

I am pretty sure you will be happy!

Hey Bill,

Just saw the latest Kickstarter update with the Libram of Fortunate Happenstance.

I love that quote you used from Almost Famous  :D

Really looking forward to getting that product.

Best regards,
Ronald

Is it possible to get a pledge split amongst 2+ people (Shipped to two different address)?  Also is the $650 pledge 4 of everything? Only has 1 shirt, etc listed.

The $650 pledge was made to be book heavy but doo-dad light.  So you don't get multiple t-shirts, battlemats, etc.  You do get multiple books, modules, players guides, etc.

Don't know if its possible to split or not.

Shane--can't do that bud---I would screw it up, and it would save you guys money to have me ship to 1 location and ship yourselves. The real answer is I would screw it up.

Just curious of people's opinions; I'm considering ponying up for the $650 level, but mainly with the idea that I could resell the other 3 copies down the road a bit to subsidize my overall purchase, and come away with a volume that has the custom artwork on the inside cover at a relatively low overall cost.

However, I'm wondering if people think there will be any significant premium on the resale value of these versions, since a goal is to put the game in brick-and-mortar distribution (and presumably with Bill's essay, Paizo will have lots of copies available!)

Obviously there are no guarantees in any event, and I certainly hope the best of success in the goal achievement of FGG for wide distribution.  But I figured that with several re-sellers here they might be able to shed some light on what it's like to sell an item like this while it is still otherwise commercially available; i.e., do people generally wait until it goes out of print to put it out there?  Or do are the exclusive modules thought to add significant premium even against a vanilla RA store version?  

I've been kicking myself ever since Castle Zygag, because I only purchased 1 of those.  I expect the print count of RA will be much higher (and obviously it will be available for a longer period of time), but since RA Reloaded was only 1,000 copies, I wonder how much higher.  

How are you as collectors/resellers guesstimating the future value?

One bit is that paizo will not have signed numbered copies, nor will they have level 7b.  I am guessing print numbers to be about 2k pathfinder and 1k sw based on the kickstarter. Maybe a few more pathfinder copies. I will tell you guys final numbers when we are done in late July.
