You must provide all character information requested by midnight Eastern time on Thursday, April 19th, 2018.

    Jacks and Jills

    You’ll get everything from the Bootlegger level.

    In addition, you’ll help design an important NPC to be featured in the book. We need three gangsters and one federal agent. The earlier you back, the better choice you get.

    You’ll work with the designer to develop the character. The character will get a full stat block and two paragraphs of description. Your likeness (or that of someone else, with their permission) will be used for this character in a small, portrait illustration in the book as well as one of the jacks in the playing card deck. And you'll receive a high-resolution image file of your illustration for your own personal use.

    We will contact you shortly after you back at this level to confer about your character. Please respond promptly. You must provide all character information requested by midnight Eastern time on Thursday, April 19th, 2018. Failure to do so will result in your character not being included in the game and no refund will be given. Character idea is subject to designer’s approval.

    See the "Your Likeness in an Illustration" section on the main page before taking this backer level. You must abide by the rules defined there.

    Finally, you won’t have to buy your book and cards. I’ll order them, sign the book, and ship everything to you. If you get any physical book/card add-ons, I can print/ship those as well, though you may incur a slight upcharge if you want more than two or three additional items.

    Includes:
    • CAPERS PDF with all stretch goals hit
    • All PDF support materials
    • Softcover or hardcover book, signed by the designer
    • Deck of CAPERS-themed playing cards
