Thanks to the awesome help of http://www.d20pfsrd.com/, there's a chance we just might make it after all! We still have only a week and a half left in the drive, but if there's one thing kickstarter has taught the world it's that anything can happen.
If you've been checking the front page, you'll notice a few changes. For one, Weapons Expert has replaced Master Craftsman as an archetype, I've dropped the stretch goals (everyone will still get something awesome if we break $2,000, but I'm no longer banking on that happening) and I've added a few new items you can get with your prizes. While Rogue Glory is our large, first product, we're already working on some PDFs we'll be releasing soon, and as our backers we wanted to make sure they were available to you as well.
If you increase your pledge by $5, you can get one of the following, or both if you increase your pledge by $10. Don't worry about changing your pledge prize, just wait until the end of the drive, where if we're successful we'll be contacting you by email to know what extra prize you wanted.
The first "Master Craftsman," is our new base class. What started out as a Rogue archetype we soon realized was in fact it's own base class, and we're happy to present it to you. The Master Craftsman is perfect for those who love magic items, building cool toys and building their own custom weapons.
The second is the PDF we were planning to release as a stretch goal, "The Rusalka of Ironwood Hollow." This is an adventure module for 8th-level adventurers we were planning to offer as a stretch goal (don't worry, we've got other stuff just in case someone really generous decides to drop us a grand,) but now we're offering to you now.
"Ironwood Hollow had it bad enough when the Lich moved in next door, but now mindless undead have surrounded the town, and a woman is rising from the river every night to take a man back to his death. The Lich insists this isn't his doing and has sent two of his best agents to investigate. Not wanting to trust this matter to a Lich, the local Lord has sent you."
If either of these seem like something you'd enjoy, then just increase your pledge and we'll get it to you about the time Rogue Glory ships.
Thanks again to all of you for your support. With any luck, we'll get this thing funded and send you an awesome book in a few months.
