Jailbreak!

Another stretch goal down, and well on our way to our next—you all are (dare I say) super! (Do you see what I did there?)

It’s awesome to check every day and see more and more support from all of you. I’m so thankful, and I can’t say it enough.

Stretch Goal #14 UNLOCKED: The Soldier, by Mark Diaz Truman

Because we reached $42,500, Mark will write up the Soldier as our third limited edition playbook! The Soldier is another one of those lenses through which you could see a number of young superheroes if you look right, and I’m really happy to add it to the overall collection of Masks playbooks—and that’s above and beyond the fact that I’m excited it’s Mark who’ll be writing it up! Mark pushed me to hone and improve the playbooks so much, and I know he’s going to do a kickass job on the Soldier.

In Our Next Issue…

We’re still in the midst of an awesome string of playbooks! At $45,000, I’ll write up the Star; at $47,500, Jenn Martin will write up the Joined; and at $50,000, Fred Hicks will write up the Harbinger, bringing us to a total of six limited edition playbooks, and 16 total!

But that’s not all! We’ve got more to show you, including—

MISSION ALERT

Come in, heroes of Halcyon City! Come in!

This is Agent Fall of the Advanced Expert Group for Intervention and Security, with an urgent message: there has been a mass breakout from the Spike! I repeat, there has been a mass breakout from the Spike!

We still don’t know who caused it or how, but that’s irrelevant at the moment. Right now we need to focus on capturing these metahuman criminals and bringing them back into custody. And we can’t do it on our own. AEGIS resources are stretched thin—we need your help.

If you can accomplish these missions for us, then it will help us to recapture these villains and add them back to our new experimental holding system—we’re calling it “The Deck of Villainy.”

Some of you may already be receiving a Deck of Villainy for your support of Halcyon City. As we catch more villains, we’ll expand the Deck, adding more cards to it. Anyone who isn’t already getting a Deck of VIllainy containment system can add one to their pledge as a $15 add-on.

Please, help us expand The Deck of Villainy—it’s the only way to make Halcyon City safe!

 When you complete…

...5 Halcyon City missions, we can catch 8 more villains for the Deck of Villainy (28 cards total)  

...10 Halcyon City missions, we can catch 16 more villains for the Deck of Villainy (36 cards total)

...15 Halcyon City missions, we can catch 24 more villains for the Deck of Villainy (44 cards total)

...20 Halcyon City missions, we can catch 34 more villains for the Deck of Villainy (54 cards total)

Mission Protocol (The Rules):

One picture per person per mission! If you’ve already taken a superhero selfie, for instance, you can’t take another superhero selfie, but you can post photos, drawings, or whatever for another mission, even the villain selfies.

New pictures! No reusing old photos—the villains can tell the difference! When you take a picture, hold up a piece of paper that says "#masksrpg" on it to prove its authenticity!

You have to tag Magpie Games! You can find us on G+ (+Magpie Games), Facebook (Magpie Games), or Twitter (@MagpieOfficial). Wherever you post your content, tag us so that we know it’s been posted.

You have to tag your missions! If possible use the tags #masksrpg and #halcyonjailbreak on all your posts, so that we can find them later.

Posts must be public! Please make your posts public so that we can share them out to fans.

The Clock is Ticking

      Small note: You guys might want to start a Tumblr in addition to Twitter and FB and G+, tap into the fanbase on there. Plus, it's a good format for fanart and other works to get shared easily onto official channels, especially for these kinds of achievement-based stretch goals.

      I might actually try to knock out a ton of these myself: I have a playgroup already set up and we're doing character creation tonight, I could manage one of the videos and one of the selfies... Yeah, I will try to pitch in on this.

      Oh cannot wait to see the videos, and group picture!

      Hah! Good catch! We'll unveil more missions (more even than 20!) as we get further along.

      That catch must be worth 1 mission all by itself :)
