      Quick question. The stretch goal for $325k says that all orders over $135 will get the Lorren bookplate signed by Pat. Does that mean that only the pledge levels over $135 get it? Let's say I have the $85 level pledge but I've added to that to get over $135 to get some of the add ons.. do I get the signed bookplate or no? Because as much I want that bookplate... none of the levels over the $85 (all the things and a jot, which I currently have) that are available right now have a jot included...and I really, really want that jot.

      @Ben, Ah, I thought all cards were going to be like that. Kinda sad that that's not the case.

      Creator Ben Birkett on June 9, 2013

      Stephen, it means that the top and bottom versions of the card will be slightly different. Similar to the way the Kvothe/Kote card has him happy/sad and such.

      Might be a stupid question, but does the stretch goal for inverse art mean one on each side of the card?

      Erik, can you confirm that there are currently 9 different magnets? I just changed my pledge because I'd like to get all of them, but I haven't seen a selection of all the magnets listed in one spot, just spread among the add-ons. Also, I seem to have missed whether the desktop wallpaper pack would be free or another add-on.

      @Rowan, It has been stated that all backers get the wallpaper pack. It was stated in the updates:

      "How do stretch goals work?

      The idea behind a stretch goal is to give our backers an incentive to raise awareness about the project or pledge more funds. In return, when we unlock one of the stretch goals, there is a benefit for you.

      Sometimes this is something that is free to everyone, like the Wallpaper pack..."

      @Sasha Kasoff, I'm not talking about the gaff (that's Lorren btw). I'm talking about the Elodin's question card cover. "Where does the moon go when it is no longer in our sky?" He says that in the second book. I'm not really sure why you're talking about the gaff.

      Creator Rowan Tribe on June 8, 2013

      (I know the wallpaper is unlocked, but I've not seen it anywhere else, so that's why I listed it as an add-on - I have no idea if it's supposed to be included with every pledge or not.)

      I have a couple ideas for some stretch goals. 1. A few examples of what sygaldry looks like? 2. Pat Rothfuss Gold Ring Favor Lottery, I know that it was veeeeeeery popular during worldbuilders, I think one sold for like 10k??? Anyone who funds the kickstarter for the minimum deck value is entered, but we'd have to hit the goal for it to happen

      Inexpensive/easy extensions cont'd: Cheap Add-On: For a low price, a package of some/all of the various card art to use as electronic device backgrounds. Similar to the art prints/magnets.

      Creator Sasha Kasoff on June 8, 2013

      @Stephen Cowart - the quote on the gaff isn't from his book, it's from the 14th century in our world

      Something we could do for everyone is have a bookmark with all the runes on it?

    22. Name_of_the_wind.small

      Creator Rowan Tribe on June 8, 2013

      As requested, I'm posting some pledge tiers/stretch goals/addons that don't cost money directly, and shouldn't cost too much time or effort: Here's my first idea: Pledge Tier: Somewhat inexpensive ($5-15), and limited number tier enters the pledger into a lottery to give Pat/Shane a musical assignment similar to the "I crush everything" song. Song choice must meet the approval of Pat/Shane. Song/artwork is then posted to YouTube for general fan enjoyment.

    23. Missing_small

      Creator Fraser Metcalf on June 8, 2013

      The lyrics to Jackass as a stretch goal and guilders as addons?

    24. Tsr-sleepav_copy.small

      Creator Laura Hart on June 8, 2013

      I haven't really thought this through, but for a new stretch goal, what about a lottery? You can select one or (however many winners you like out of the backers, or raise the amount of winners with more stretch goals) to receive their choice of a magnet or print - any one of the add-on's that Albino Dragon and Pat would select. And hopefully that wouldn't eat too much into your profits, as well as people feeling they are getting more free stretch goals. You wouldn't be committed to creating more art either - hopefully it wouldn't be to much extra work. Just an idea - not sure realistically how well it would work.

      I'll throw in my vote for a map of anything. Maps are awesome.

      Also, I would also like to add my vote to the request that the main page updated with more information about all the add-ons now available. However, I have to keep reminding myself that you are only two people doing all of this and you have to eat and sleep sometime. I can't imagine trying to organize a project this big and that is also constantly expanding. Keep up the awesome work!

      Creator Stephen Cowart on June 8, 2013

      @Sasha, technically the quote from Elodin's card cover is from book two so I don't see why tak isn't an option. Although I always saw tak as go.

      For a add on / stretch goal / whatever maybe a postcard size ish thing that has drawings of each type of money. I know there are quite a few (nobels, talents, jots, etc) and would be really cool to see what they look like. I wouldn't think this would TOO much work compared to something like an art book and I for one would love it. Also if you did this maybe having the conversions would be cool as well (1 talent = x jots, etc)

    29. Me.small

      Creator Sasha Kasoff on June 8, 2013

      @Malexmave – book covers add on is $5 I believe

      actually I don't like my bookmarks sticking out because it might get bent when i'm carrying books in a bag etc :) heck if its an 'award' from a cards kickstarter i'd want it the shape and size of a playing card to commemorate it heh

    32. Missing_small

      Creator A. De Smet on June 8, 2013

      @Taravangian: They said you can use it as a bookmark, like you can use any playing card, really. The only difference is this one doesn't fulfill any function in the deck. It's still the size of a playing card, though. Bookmarks are usually a bit more stretched out so the top sticks out between the pages even if it drops a bit.

    33. Missing_small

      Creator Jeffrey Chavez on June 8, 2013

      A idea for an add-on could be a deck of cards, or art prints with the complete underlying line art.

    34. Promocard.small

      Creator Ezequiel Rodriguez on June 8, 2013

      Maybe as a stretch goal, we could get a poem or lyrics to a song that is mentioned in the books bu never heard of? Perhaps an excerpt of some sort from Daeonica or some other literature?

    35. Temp.small

      Creator Taravangian on June 8, 2013

      Creator Victoria Henderson on June 8, 2013

      I really like the bookmark idea, maybe with some simple art and the quote from the inside cover of Rhetoric and Logic that Abenthy left for Kvothe?
      "Kvothe,
      Defend yourself well at the University. Make me proud.
      Remember your father's song. Be wary of folly.
      Your friend,
      Abenthy"

      Creator Daan Troost on June 8, 2013

      Where's an edit button when you need one, some more suggestions.

      Possibly a digital version of some sheet music and/or lyrics of the songs from NotW and maybe include the children's rhymes etc.

      The last thing I could think of for now is some character sheets of some of the main characters, perhaps using a couple of characters not in the deck. A sheet with a picture of the entire character and his birthplace, age, level of study, specialisation, short description etc. (either as a digital version or as a print).

    39. Question_marks.small

      Creator Daan Troost on June 8, 2013

      I support the idea of a digital PDF artbook; a physical one would mean quite a bit of extra work and I think many people, including me, wouldn't be able to afford it.

      A map of the university/Imre or of the entire continent would be lovely too, you could add to the wallpaper pack so we can always see where Kvothe's adventures have led him.

      Maybe you could also draw up some of the schematics from the workshop, a bit like a DIY collectible. You get to create your own item from the NotW literature :).

      And as long as you're creating the mead recipe you might want to consider some sort of cookbook with some of the recipes from the Waystone Inn and other establishments.

      Creator Aaron Berke on June 8, 2013

      I suppose it'd be too big of a thing to add an add-on of a wooden Metheglin tankard? Like one that says "Eolian" on the side with engraved talent pipes?

    48. Me.small

      Creator Allie on June 8, 2013

      I really like the idea of the maps.
      I think it might also be cool to have the metheglin recipe written out on a scroll or old parchment as an add on tier.
      I know that sounds silly, but I make mead every year for family and friends and it would look pretty cool framed in the kitchen if it were on old timey parchment.

    49. Lhocomedian.small

      Creator Datalaughing on June 8, 2013

      You could do a stretch goal with a digital art book PDF with each of the card images at various stages of design along with some comments by Shane and/or Pat about how they developed, even a couple of joke versions you could randomly throw in. Basically like the hangouts but in an e-book form. Seems like something you could put together with relatively little effort but that everyone would love.
