It's hard to believe that only three weeks ago the Kickstarter for Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen introduced itself to the world. Over those three weeks we've seen a ton of excitement and so much support from the community for the project. People have been emailing, commenting and posting offering ways to help, and suggestions on how we can improve. For that, Visionary Realms would like to take a moment to thank you all for your support.
During our interview with the Project 1999 team we broke 300k Saturday night. This milestone was a big one, and we were quite happy to see that number. To further the good news Saturday night, P99 informed us, and their players of their plan to support the project through a pledge drive. We were both humbled and highly appreciative of the support by the team and the players. A big thank you to you all!

Portalarium Offers Help
P99 hasn't been the only group to offer their assistance in raising funds for Pantheon. Friday we told you that Portalarium, Richard Garriott's team behind Shroud of the Avatar, offered their help via a cross-funding initiative, offering backers of both games special in-game rewards. We are continuing discussions with Portalarium to figure out cool ways to thank backers, and wanted to give a quick shout of thanks to the team over there.
Didn't catch the news? Brad did a series of interviews on the initiative and you can catch those interviews at Massively, Curse, Ten Ton Hammer, and MMORPG.com.
Vu Returns to the Rob and Dan Show
After his first taste of show business, Vu is hungry for more. Tonight he'll be making his second appearance on the Rob and Dan show to show more of his work on Pantheon. With him will be more members of the Visionary Realms team to give more details about the game and answer your questions. Be sure to tune in to the Rob & Dan show today at 4pm PST / 7pm EST to check it out.
Check Out our Add-ons
Last week we also introduced our pledge add-ons. These add-ons offer some things not available in current tiers, and some bits from existing tiers. So, if you have pledged at a certain tier but wish you had something extra, like a second alpha or beta key for instance, head on over to our add-ons page to find out how add-ons work and how you can claim even more goodies.
Back to AMA
After the last AMA, Brad wanted to do another one. And I'm guessing some of you would like another chance to ask your questions directly of Brad. Well, that opportunity is coming up! But we're going to do things a little differently this time. Instead of pre-selecting a time on our own, Brad has agreed to let you pick for him. So, simply post in the comments section of this thread the day of the week and time you'd like Brad to appear on AMA, and we'll get it scheduled.
Three Weeks Left and Need Your Help
We're past the half-way mark now in our Kickstarter campaign time. And while we're thrilled to have broken 300k, we still need more help. So, this week we reach out to you once more to help spread the word. You all have been great in getting the word around, but this week we're going to ask for something a bit more personal. If everyone talked to one person each week and convinced that one person to pledge, we'd be on track to not only break the 800k but we could even begin to reach some stretch goals before the campaign is over. I think we can do it. We certainly have a passionate enough community that believes in this project. Together we can make it happen.
