    In addition to the above rewards, receive a digital copy of the entire Project: Gorgon soundtrack by Conor Brace.

    Your account will also receive two vials of "wolf spit" (we'll hopefully find a better name for it) that can be drunk to infect your character with lycanthropy, thus skipping the quests involved.

    Any animal-form characters on your account (e.g. lycanthropy, cow, spider, etc.) will also have access to a unique emote.

    Your Gold Level access will be extended to twelve months (instead of 6).

    In addition to the above rewards, your characters will all start with a few levels in the Teleportation skill for convenience, and you'll automatically have access to two rare teleportation locations.

    In addition, leave your mark on the game's design by naming either a food recipe or a special piece of armor. The item will have your chosen name and a short description. These will be rare loot drops, but you will get 3 copies of the recipe or item automatically to do with as you please.

    (We may need to work with you to find lore-appropriate names and descriptions, but we'll do our best to honor the spirit of your design.)

    In addition to the 12 months of Gold Level access, your account will have 3 "Gold Gifts" which you can bequeath to less fortunate players to give them a month of Gold Level access.

    Pledge $125 or more About $125

    In addition to the above rewards, all of your characters will have access to a special werewolf or druid beast-form appearance -- assuming that the character is a werewolf or druid, of course.

    You will also receive an in-game Codex of Knowledge inscribed with several words of power, including one unique 12th-Tier Word of Power that can be used in-game exactly once, to astonishing effect. (One codex for your entire account, not per character!)

    Plus, you will be able to name an NPC, and provide a brief description of his or her appearance and personality. You can specify whether this is a friendly townsfolk, shopkeeper, or evil foe. (All names and descriptions are subject to editing to fit the game's lore, of course.)

    Instead of 3 "Gold Gifts", your account will have 6.

    In addition to the above rewards, you will get to create a custom title. You (and you alone) will be able to bestow this title on anyone you like.

    Plus, you will have first dibs on landscape houses. Here's how it works:

    Most player housing will use a form of instancing tech so that everyone can own a home. But a small number of homes will be on the landscape.

    When these special landscape houses become available (some during beta, the rest shortly after launch), you will have 1 week to purchase one (with in-game currency and items) before they become available to the general public.

    We aren't sure exactly how many landscape houses there will be, but they'll be pretty rare. However, we'll make sure theres at least enough so that every person that pledges this amount has a few choices available to them.

    Your house will provide various gameplay benefits, like an account-shared storage vault and the ability to teleport to your home from anywhere in the world (if you have enough Teleportation skill). You will also be able to hire an NPC shopkeeper to sell your wares from your home.

    Instead of 6 "Gold Gifts", your account will have 12.

    In addition to the above rewards, you will have access to a few fun 'admin' commands, including /smite -- which kills another player instantly -- once per week, /fanfare -- which announces your presence to the entire server -- once per day, and a few other commands to create illusions and minor conveniences.

    (The /smite command doesn't work in PvP, so smiting other people doesn't give you any real advantage... although it can be very funny. See FAQ for more information if you're concerned about the balance issues involved in this. tl;dr: it's fine.)

    Plus, you will design a unique weapon, including name, appearance, and backstory (if desired). We will model it based on your description. It will be a rare loot item, but you will receive one free copy of the item.

    Finally, your account will have Gold Level access permanently.

    In addition to the above rewards, you will own one of the (VERY few) player homes in Serbule.

    (There is an empty house in Serbule right now which is a vague approximation of the house you'll get... but we actually expect it to be a whole lot spiffier than that.)

    The rent will be paid automatically throughout the beta and for one year post-release. After that, your character will need to pay rent -- but a player that's been playing for a year should have little trouble affording the rent!

    Like all landscape houses, you will be able to decide whether it is "open" or "closed" to visitors. If it is open, you can hire various services, including an NPC vendor to sell your wares, a bookshelf to collect player stories, a bed for players to sleep in, and so on.

    This is exactly like the reward above, except your house will be a cottage in the wilderness of Eltibule. The front of your home will have a small garden, which anyone can use to grow vegetables and flowers (if you allow it). You can also hire a special NPC vendor to sell your wares, provide a library, beds, and much more.

    This is exactly like the above reward, except your home will be a cottage in the freezing Kur Mountains or the bitterly cold Gazluk Plateau.

    If you wish it, your home will act as a safe spot for travelers, with a warm fire to cure frostbite and take respite from the snow. You can also hire an NPC shopkeeper to sell items, maintain a library, or even rent out the beds like a small inn.

    In addition to all the pre-$1000 rewards, you will also have a Guild Manor in one of the game's cities. (We will randomly choose which manor you get.) The Guild Manor acts like a house for the guild master (you), and also provides numerous features for guild members, including some specialized NPCs and a private lounge. All guild members can teleport to the Guild Manor from anywhere in the world (a limited number of times per day).

    In addition to all the pre-$1000 rewards, you will also be a duke/duchess and have a small duchy. Your duchy will include a small city (which you can name, subject to approval), and you can have as much impact on the design as you'd like -- anything from "make it full of Rakshasa townsfolk" to "here's a 20-page design doc" -- and we'll do our best to make your vision reality. (If that's overwhelming, we'll work with you on the design, so you don't have to start from a blank page unless you want to.) You will have a few special administrative powers that work while you are in your duchy. For instance, you will be able to launch fireworks at night, banish players from your city if you deem them annoying, and activate a special "festival mode" that creates a more festive atmosphere in town. We will also entertain suggestions for custom duchy commands, as long as they're not overpowered and are easy for us to code. Your duchy will include a manor home which acts like the player housing described above. (Including needing to pay rent after one year post release -- but ownership of the manor home is not connected to your dukedom.) As long as you remain active in the game community (e.g. logging in for at least a few hours per month), you will remain the duke forever. However, understand that the game world will change over time, and this may impact your duchy in various ways. There will be happy times and sad times, and you will occasionally have opportunity to exhibit your leadership skills.
