For those looking to double down with DCC RPG Kickstarters, one of the other 'premier' initial third-party-publishers also has a kickstarter.

http://fallenempires.info/

Sunrunner44 - looking to corner the market on DCC RPG Third-party Kickstarter offerings.

PS - he also funded BHP, which warms my dark heart, too.

PPS - I hope no one already posted this, dammit all.

This kickstarter is going to bankrupt Brave Halfling publishing .... I am so worried for Adams .... hoping he did his math, cause I'm upping my pledge.

With the update about the Bonus level at $15K, I'm even more glad I bought into this one now!

And damn you sunrunner44, no need to post more goodies......

I don't see it.  Where does the kickstarter mention 7 modules?

At the $31 level you get multiple copies of some modules, for 7 total various copies when the kickstarter was at $4K in funding.  I don't think Grey M meant 7 different modules.

Maybe I have the wrong link.  All I see is  Fallen Empires link that does not have the $31 option even listed.

The link takes you to the wrong kickstarter. You want Brave Halfling's:

Also known as "The First Kickstarter to Bankrupt a Publisher"

Thank you.  That makes much more sense.

Yep....sorry about that

I meant at the $31 backer level I will (at the current funded level) get :

2 copies of "Appendix N Adventure Toolkit #1: "The Ruins of Ramat" (for backing at the $31 dollar level)
1 copies of "Appendix N Adventure Toolkit #1a: "The Witch of Wydfield" (for backing at the $31 dollar level)
2 copies of "Appendix N Adventure Toolkit #2: "The Crumbling Tower." (stretch goal #1 reached)
2 copies of "Appendix N Adventure Toolkit #3: "Danger in the Sulyndri Forrest." (stretch goal #2 reached)
2 copies of "Appendix N Adventure Toolkit #4: "The Revenge of Abudakar." (stretch goal #3 reached)

9 total modules in print, 4 modules in PDF. Now they're down to $3.44/each per print module.

The next stretch goal is the box at 10,000.

Great email update from John, appreciate these bonuses, I'm even more glad that I'm at $31 already :)

I'm a little concerned for John here, I've just had a read through on the Kickstarter page and if I read it correctly, the bonus goal items will be shipped out seperately.  I can't believe this can be done, especially with international shipping.  I'd happily wait until everything is ready, but despite reading John's latest update, still can't believe this can be done even in one shipping without a hefty loss.

But isn't he also saying that he's going to get money back on the retail units and also just wants to put games in people's hands?
Whilst I'd not want John to lose money, I think he's clear that he doesn't intend to make $1000s in this.

making $1000's?? more like loosing $1000's.. I for am am not going to be getting it shipped to me..maybe getting the package shipped to Mike or pay extra for shipping as at the moment I have only ordered the$20.. that gets me one of everything.. just shipping the boxed set to me with everything in it will cost something like $35us.. since my pledge is $20.. thats a net loss of $15 + the cost of the materials... and thats if everthing is shipped at once.. I would hate to see the figs if its seperate.. these things will have to be "cheeply" made to reduce costs I suppose.. I would really like to see the numbers he is using here.. its a lot of $$ to loose..

I appreciate that Brette. John states that he doesn't see KS projects as a particularly ethical way to make $1000's but all he wants to do is put games in people's hands. As a 'punt' I get exactly what he's saying, start of cheaply and with reputation and a good product, you'll score back because his next venture (if he plans one) will be priced still reasonably but in a way that those who bought in early will want more and therefore he'll win.

I wasn't sure that the pledges we'd made so far covered shipping, but as you say, I'd be willing to cover that if it's necessary.

Of course, I don't want John to lose money, especially as he has been in a similar position for me, being out of work for so many months, but he seems confident in his game plan and I'll support him on that.

No mention of shipping anywhere. I was thinking it wasn't included as well. As Brette said, if it is, John would lose a lot of money on international shipping (my $31 pledge will barely cover shipping to France).

Hey guys. International shipping for a digest module is not anywhere as much as shipping a full-sized, hardcover book. It is like shipping an oversized letter.

Once you go to the box though, you will need to send in a box.. shipping for me will be pretty accurate I think
