Better Book Barrier Broken (The Alliteration Update)
Well, you guys went and did it, and once again proved Rick, Eric, and myself wrong about the commitment and enthusiasm that exists for this campaign. We've reached our 90K Stretch Goal, and you can read about the specifics under its heading on the campaign page, but the really quick version is this.
It's going to be a very, very nice book.
These changes will carry across all editions, by the way, so if you're a Cloth Covers backer or a Rare & Royal backer, these specs apply to both.
We've also added an explanation of our next goal, at 100K. Essentially, we're talking maps. Nice maps. Professionally done maps. Maps you'd be proud to take home and introduce to your parents.
New Tier Coming and More by Way of Add-Ons
We've hinted - well, stated, actually - that we're going to introduce a new tier for the trade, one that will hopefully fill the gap between the basic Cloth Covers and the Rare & Royal editions. Our initial run of these will be 300 copies, but we will be able to expand that run to meet demand. Rick is working on the mock-up of the cover for that edition now, and once that's finished, we'll be revealing the tier. This will be a higher-end edition of the book, though not as luxe as the Rare & Royal.
We've also been exploring the use of BackerKit, which has come highly recommended as a means of managing add-ons. We hope to integrate this service shortly, and will send a specific update once we've done so. Once the integration is complete, we'll expand the add-ons, and will no longer need to require a base $50 pledge to access them.
I'm pleased to attach below the black-and-white preliminary of the Pegasus Crew Patch design. We hope to show you all a color version of this soon!
