Thank you, backers!
In celebration of today's 100th backer, I'm offering an additional kickback for all Human Contact supporters past and present!
Back Human Contact at any of the listed levels, and I'll send you a PDF of the Quarantine, a character playbook designed by Vincent Baker for his game Apocalypse World! http://apocalypse-world.com/
The Quarantine has been locked away, suspended in ignorance of the outside world, throughout the Apocalypse. But his ignorance is nothing compared to what he knows: he remembers what came before and knows what caused it.
Not that it will help him.
The Quarantine is only available to Human Contact backers and won't be available after the Kickstart ends in 19 days. If you haven't helped me with Human Contact yet, chuck me your change to get that character locked away underground, frozen in time!

Oct 5, 2010 - Nov 6, 2010 (32 days)
Pledge $10 or more
At $10, you'll get a PDF of the final game before it's even at the presses! I'm not sure what the eventual price of the PDF will be, but it'll certainly be more than ten bucks. I'll also send unfinished versions out to Kickstarters as the book reaches certain milestones!
Pledge $25 or more
25 backers All gone!
If you pledge just $25, I'll send you a signed copy of the final game text along with the PDF for easy searching. The book alone will go for something like $30 when complete, so combined with the PDF, this is a damn good deal. Limited numbers!
Pledge $33 or more
Print & PDF pre-order, plus developmental PDFs along the way, just like the $25 level, but at the street value, with free shipping. If there are still copies left at $25, do that one instead!
Pledge $50 or more
If you pledge $50, I'll send you not only the PDF and a signed copy of the game, but also a set of four booklets to share with all your players, giving a brief explanation of the Academy and the galaxy that holds it.
Pledge $53 or more
Shock:Bundle! The same as the $33 level, but with a copy of Shock:Social Science Fiction as well!
Pledge $70 or more
Shock:Bundle, but with the four setting books from the $50 level!
Pledge $100 or more
If you send me $100 or more, it means you really want Human Contact to happen. In appreciation, along with the goodies from the other giving levels, I'll send you a handmade Kodrek set, along with a ludological/anthropological paper describing the game, by MektehShr Phon, an anthropologist member of the Contactor Rn-Zjaphe, just returned from the remains of the Kotaht Archipelago. Kodrek is a board game, called the "Man's Game" in Kotaht. It is played for money in rowdy bars among men, whether they be male or female. The objective of the three-player game is to fling one of the other two Craft off the board, splitting the ante of the loser between them. It plays in as many rounds as you have coins to spend on, and a round takes fifteen or twenty minutes. Play it with pennies for fun, quarters for intensity, or Toleks for authenticity!
