The Eric has the Keys to the Kickstarter Update
Eric here. Greg called me earlier and warned me that he'd be away from the computer this evening, asking if I could update the new unlocked stretch goal if you guys helped us reach it.
Ha ha. If.
We continue to be completely overwhelmed by your support for Lady Sabre. Even through this weekend, I doubted we'd be seeing these deck plans. But you sure showed me. We've already been talking to Sterling Hershey about the maps over the past few days, and we're all excited to be able to expand our conversation now!
We'll be posting information about a new stretch goal tomorrow, pending a conversation with our printers about cost and feasibility. We might also be posting some new limited and exciting reward tiers.
We've had some questions about the possibility of pledging for multiple limited reward tiers, and it seems that some of our backers have had success signing up for multiple Kickstarter accounts. I believe the way it works is you simply have a second account for Kickstarter, and can use the same Amazon account and credit card for the actual payment process.
...If we get around to offering what I hope we'll be offering, you might want to take advantage of that.
Why do you read Lady Sabre?
One of the things people dislike about Kickstarter campaigns is the endless drone of "Please support me" posts. This can get rough especially when, like ours, they're coming down to the wire. One thing we've really tried to do with this campaign is to provide discussions or items of substance in our updates, in our interviews, and in our social media outreach. I hope we've not failed completely at that.
To this end, we want to ask if you'll consider spreading the word in a constructive way over the next few days via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, blogs, message boards, or whatever new media you use that we're too old and un-hip to know about.
If you'd be so kind, we'd like you to answer the question posed in the header above by saying, "I read Lady Sabre because _______" while filling in the blank with your own personal reason, and giving a link to either our Kickstarter page or directly to our (still free!) webcomic (http://www.ineffableaether.com). Greg, Rick, and I will be checking in as well across all of the social media networks on our radar to see what you all have to say!
Thanks from me (me being Eric still)
I know you are all fans of Greg's and Rick's and probably still have no clue who I am, but I want to thank you for what you've done here. When Greg talks about how overwhelmed and humbled he and Rick have been by your support, I can verify that he's being truthful. This has been an incredible experience for all of us, and we hope you've enjoyed the ride too.
Hey, did you know Greg (the one who insists on including my promise to sing for you all in every update) gets an email every time each one of you posts a new comment? It sure would be rough on his inbox if all 2,475 of you decided to say something nice below.
