Add-Ons Confirmed: The Print Block, Tees, Slipcases, Dice
Thanks for all the great feedback on the campaign - we're listening and we hope this post fills in the gaps for add-on items! We have added a section to the campaign text called "Add-On Items and Pledge Levels." And you may also notice there are now two additional pledge levels! Yes, this answers the questions on how you can get the stretch goal items in print - the short version is, upgrade your pledge to include the new "print block" pledge options! More details below!
Oh, and we added a T-shirt...
Add-On Items and Pledge Levels
The Mutant Crawl Classics Kickstarter has already cleared a number of stretch goals, and we've had many requests to get those in print! Most stretch goals are in PDF, but to answer the requests to have them in print, we've added pledge levels that include the "Print Block" (as we're calling it).
What is the "Print Block"? The print block is a $50 flat rate, and will include printed editions of all adventure module stretch goals cleared through the end of the campaign. (Note that the stretch goals include other, non-adventure items, and the print block is strictly the adventure modules.) The adventure modules have a printed retail price of $10 each, and as of the time of this writing, there are 5 adventure module stretch goals cleared, so the print block is at normal retail price (5 modules x $10 each = $50). However, the price of the print block does not change as we clear more stretch goals. So if we clear all 7 adventure module stretch goals, this will be a $70 value for only $50. (And who knows, maybe we'll go past 7!) You can find a breakdown of the adventure module content in this recent update.
What are the pledge levels with the print block? You can pledge for the basic hardcover, or the gold foil hardcover. And we have added pledge levels so you can pledge for "basic hardcover + print block," or "foil hardcover + print block."
What other add-on items exist? You can also add these items to your pledge:
- Dice! A 14-die set, including all the "funky dice," available in either radioactive green or glow-in-the-dark color schemes. Each set is $25. Check out this update for more details on the dice.
- T-shirts! A black tee with the MCC RPG skull in vivid green. Add +$25.
- A slipcase! A color slipcase to enclose your hardcover. Add +$25.
What are shipping costs for add-ons? If you select the print block add-on pledge, an adjusted shipping cost is included. If you add anything else (dice, tees, and/or slipcase), please add an additional flat rate of +$5.
Will there be other add-on items? We do not plan to add any other add-ons. We've heard the requests for various other items, but we're really trying to make this an efficient Kickstarter to fulfill. With 1,500+ backers and counting, we've got to find a way to get your books out efficiently, so we're finding economies of scale in the way we handle the add-ons!
What about print editions of AI Addendum and the Mutant Manual? Based on the pretty strong consensus from backers, we're going to work those into the core book. So backers will get the PDF edition free, and then when your print book arrives (if you're a print backer), you'll find this additional content integrated as part of the overall core book layout. In essence the core book will now be approximately 32 pages longer, with that extra content made of AI patrons and new mutations! There is no additional charge for this (although it may delay the book a little...we'll see).
I think that's all for now. Hopefully this answers all the questions regarding add-ons. If there are any more, let us know!
