      @Fria Ligan, sounds like the compelling reason is, "because we need to make a living, and that can't be done at Amazon's prices." "We need to eat, too" is pretty compelling ;-)

      Svarar ju fortfarande inte på varför ni tar 25:- mer för bilderna här kontra eran egna hemsida? Även varför jag skall behöva lägga ca 90:- extra för att lägga till de tidigare böckerna här. Känns som om ni lurar de som backar er..

      @Steve Hersey and Uberking: Our recommended retail price for both previous artbooks is 378 SEK. Some large online retailers undercut this price quite a bit - this is their business model and they are free to set any price they like, but the problem is that retail stores cannot compete with Amazon prices and are thus forced out of business. We set a recommended price that we feel is the right one and we stick to it, and we do give a small discount on the books here on the kickstarter. Also, as Edvin Ullman points out, getting the books this way gives you the PDF as well at no extra cost. :)

      so what are the odds that one of art collector spots will open up? less than 1%? i guess i will keep checking. i have seen a few openings in the Drone Pilot level today.

      it is also possible that the amazon copies do not come with the 3 extra art prints that both the previous KS versions have (and that now this art book version will come with). having bought both of the art books through previous KS efforts, and having them both contain the 3 art prints, it is something worth asking Fria about. Fria, can you confirm that the art books bought here through KS will contain the 3 art prints? thanks!! :)

      Fria Ligan vakna nu! Varför dessa överpriser på kickstarter kontra eran egna hemsida!?

      @Steve Hersey:
      Not that I'm the creator here, but does the Amazon book come with the pdf as well? Otherwise I'd argue that's a pretty neat reason to get it this way. Now, personally I already own the Tales from the Loop rpg pdf, so I'll likely not go for that addon. The other two however, are both twofers.

      I own the two previous books and pledged for this one, want the pdf for book 1 and 2 answell, but 2x175 for pdfs...

      Really want the TFTL rpg cover poster, but it seems a bit crazy that its 350 for an entire art book and almost half that for a single poster. I've pledged for it, but geez.

      Also, same here to comment below, the TFTL and TFTF art books are cheaper on Amazon, but that's to be expected imo. Will probably pick them up from there.

    11. Uberking on July 27

      Why is poster prices higher at kickstart than frialigan.se 150:- and 125:- Also if I order both previous books at frialigan.se I only pay 611:- and kickstarter 700:-

      Strange! :S

      I'm interested in getting Tales From The Loop, but the Kickstarter add-on price of 350 SEK is significantly higher than Amazon's selling price of US $33.79 (~277 SEK) for the same book. Is there a compelling argument for paying the higher price for the Kickstarter add-on?

      Fria, will the prints in the Drone Pilot level also be numbered out of 50, in addition to being signed? Thanks!

    14. Aiden Coutts on July 27

      How do you order posters?

    15. Missing avatar

      Deximer on July 27

      Its 150 sek per poster, is that correct?

      'Please note that you can only order addons if you are a backer at level ROBOT RUNAWAY or above.'

    17. Aiden Coutts on July 27

      I'm still a bit confused... what level do you have to be to get all the new addons?

      @Fria Ligan: Toppen! Tack för allt!

      Plz one more art unlock if we hit 3m :)

    20. Sebastian D. on July 27

      @Fria Ligan:
      Ok, thanks! I'll hope things go well then - some of the add-ons for which I added "padding" to my pledge are supposed to be presents for a friend in the US. I have a plan B, but of course it would be even better if everything works out as planned.

    21. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 27

      @Sebastian D. : Everything ships together in one shipment, except possibly the posters which will likely ship separately.

      @Lars Ivar | AoUA : Yes, there is no additonal shipping for addons!

      Please let one of the add-on picture will be "drone sweet drone"? it looks so great!

    27. Lars Ivar | AoUA on July 27

      I'm finally getting my act together to get all three books (the earlier ones as addons) - but how does shipping work for those? Is it included in the shipping for this new book?

    28. Sebastian D. on July 27

      So first, I want to support what Edvin said: whoever did the English texts for the previous art books (and the TftL RPG book) did a great job; and I hope he/she works on this book, too.

      Second:
      Will everything ship in one large batch oder will existing add-ons be sent out earlier?

      Two questions and some wishful thinking:
      1. I have the Tales from the Loop RPG book as an English pdf, and the language is pretty dang great, will the same translator be employed for this book?
      2. On the same topic, was the same translator employed for the previous two books?
      3. Pretty pretty please, consider making a short adventure for the new setting!!

      Just updated my pledge for that sick shirt. Also keep the design minimal as the photo shows. Less is more and I love the logo text and symbol placement.

    31. Mnemonaut on July 27

      T-Shirt with Sentre logo? Increasing pledge. Now.

    32. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 26

      @Lev: We will go with the Sentre logo T-shirt design.

    33. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 26

      @Telgar: Posters will be shipped rolled. And check out the new and expanded posters selection!

      Would it be possible to have the Carson pass image as an add-on? (And I second the idea of Riksenergi or Krafta tshirts :) )

      mike on July 26

      Current shirt design with the red SENTRE logo looks great. As Lev else said, please don't put more text on it on it. It doesn't need text on the back.

    36. Lev on July 26

      Agreed with @Phlorian. Would love to pick up tshirts from previous KS because they were too expensive that time around.

      Please let us know ASAP whether the tshirt design has been finalized. IMHO it's great now as-is and I'd hate to get blindsided by a last-minute change.

    37. Lev on July 26

      Thank you for quick response and tshirt design update. I increased my pledge to get it because now it fits perfectly with the rest of the book look/feel.

      Please don't add any more text to the tshirt.

      Hi
      Not sure how you plan to ship posters, it would be nice to have a rolled one, in a carton tune. Folded , please not. You have the folding lines then you can't have a nice frame.

    39. Uberking on July 26

      Why can't you add the text from the book cover at the back of the T-shirt? Come on Fria Ligan!

    40. Phlorian on July 26

      Thanks a lot for changing the T-shirt design! Now I increased my pledge again. I would love to also be able to get a krafta and riksenergi shirt. The triple would be soooo cool!

    41. Vlad on July 26

      What an awesome art book, I am really excited! I actually found out about it when I got an email from Kickstarter saying that Josan, creator of the amazing "The Future is Now" Kickstarter books backed this project. After checking it out, I immediately got on board.

    45. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 26

      The new T-shirt design is up! Check it our under the Addons section.

    46. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 26

      @Uberking: Shipping to the UK is less expensive because we have our main warehouse for international books and games there. Also, even domestic shipping is considerably more expensive in Sweden than in the UK. These are costs that we cannot control.

    47. Fria Ligan 11-time creator on July 26

      @Valter Ambrosius Östberg: The text is written by Simon in Swedish, then translated to English by a professional translator.

    48. Uberking on July 26

      Another Cool design on the T-Shirt could be Sentre Logo on the front and " Simon Stålenhag The Electric State" on the back :)

    49. Uberking on July 26

      You could go with the name as it stands on the book cover "Simon Stålenhag The Electric State" and the Sentre logo below, on the T-Shirt.

      I want the picture Cable work ahead. Alpine county, CA and The Sentre mushrooms as addons or Art print unlocks :) Names taken from Stålenhag Tumblr.

      How come the shipment cost in Sweden is 99:- and to UK 69:-
      Fria Ligan Swedish Company? Shouldn't it be lower to Sweden?
