Designer Diary now on BGG
This is a low room with a crude note on the wall. The note says, "You won't get it up the steps". There is a large sparkling nugget of gold here!
First of all, thanks to our 145th backer; we just crossed five thousand dollars! Thanks also to everyone who's pledged so far. Here's how the current pledges break down graphically: 15% of the money is coming from the lowest three tiers combined; 15% from the $22 tier; 25% from the $30 tier; 30% from the first "Master Adventurer" tier at $55; and 12% from the highest ($100+) tiers.
Okay, enough meta stuff. All I really wanted to say in this update was, I now have a Designer Diary blog over at BoardGameGeek, where I'll be posting really in-depth stuff about the individual cards, their interactions, and some history of the changes that the game has gone through over the past two years. This is stuff that I expect a lot of you will be interested in, but also a lot of you won't, so I don't want to do it as Kickstarter updates. The first two "Know Your Items" posts have already been posted, and I plan to do a couple more tonight. Check it out!
