I'm going for it!


The writing is going extremely well.  I'm already halfway through the first draft, and it's obvious that The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence is going to be much bigger than I anticipated (I had hopes, but didn't want to oversell in case of extended writer's block).  At this point, I'm confident the book will be 111 pages!  Regardless of the $, that's what I'm shooting for.

There are so many awesome things I'd love to share (read: spoil) with you... like the ability for magic-users to do that thing in Scanners - if you've never seen the film, it's worth watching at least once.  But most of the Purple secrets I'm going to keep close to my vest. Wizard duels will never be the same!

However, the initial funding is still a few hundred dollars short with only 3 days remaining.  I've been wracking my brain on incentives and I think I've got something:  everyone who ups their pledge by $5 will get their Purple softcovers signed by me (Not $5 per book, but $5 total will include EVERY softcover book per customer).

Oh yeah, one last thing... because this book is going to be much larger than planned, it's going to retail at a higher price when it comes out this summer.  The PDF will probably go for at least $15 and the softcover somewhere between $25 and $30.  So, multiple books are worth thinking about, especially since they'll be signed.  Want an additional softcover?  Just add another $15 on to your pledge per book.

Also, the GM assistance and handmade dice trays (with sigil guide) will be worth the extra cash.  I've used the latter with character creation and a few times during sessions - not only does everyone go on and on about how it looks... the sigils adds an extra dimension of story.

Ok, that's it.  Tell your friends, too, so we can achieve the initial $3,500 and actually make this thing a purple reality.  Thanks!

      That reward doesn't include a softcover, but for an extra $10, it could. Assuming it's too late to increase one's pledge, you could send a check or something. Or you could get a signed softcover without the GM assistance. Let me know what you want to do.

      Hey man, I was rereading the levels. i'm in for $40, does that include a soft cover version from the lower level support or no?

      Thanks, Ed!

      Hey David, at this point, an extra $5 ensures that the Purple softcover gets signed along with the Liberation book. However, if the kickstarter reaches $4,000 by the time it's over, then everyone getting a softcover gets it signed.

      Thanks, Scott! Nature shall be altered by my will.

      Upped my pledge by $10. 111 pages sounds great.

      I've already backed at the $35 level - am I already getting the signatures the extra $5 would get me?

      I'm in for a few extra copies. They'll go well with the LotFP stuff in my online store.

      Gaming budget has been pretty much blown over the past couple of months, but what the hell, it's a new year. I'm in for an extra fiver
