Update #1

Wow! Do we need new reward tiers?

Seems like folks are really into the special reward tiers- maybe we should add some more. We're going to look into that, but since we have a community here and on the WW forums, we're also going to ask you folks: what sort of rewards do you think would be cool in addition to those we already have?

      I'm a poor gamer with only the Core PDF, and no desire for a Deluxe Companion.
      Would it be possible to get colour POD books (Core + Companion), with (Annotated) PDF for this Companion?
      If the POD was signed, that would be shiny

      I'd like to have a chance for getting my character used as one of the example starter character sheets in the book. I know I'd pay highly for that.

      Definitely physical products or discounts on future products. Clan Pins, Music, Books are all great options.

      Having on account what happened with the V20 book, where it was not unusual that fans ordered books for them and for some friends, it might be sensible to add an option to allow one single backer to pledge for more than one copy of the V20 Companion Deluxe Edition.

      I have seen this on other Kickstarter campaigns, so I believe it is doable.

      To me, if I'm going to increase my pledge, it'd need to be for something physical — Clan pins, t shirts, guaranteed getting W20 landing on my doorstep first.

      I can totally understand why people like their name higher up the credit list, being used as a model for a character, signatures, speaking to the game designers, those sorts of things, but they don't do anything for me.

      I think a greater range of ebooks for current and future will be very much appreciated, as well as a POD version of V20. I'd also like to mention that at $25, the V20 Companion ebook option will likely put off many - you can draw in more pledges and more interest in the V20 Companion in general just by lowering the ebook reward option to, say, $15.

      More Artwork related tiers. Signed artwork, you character featured in the opening fiction. the slipcase.

      Salubri Anarch: Check out my account and my listed website regarding that bit about dice. (I couldn't find any way to PM you this message. Sorry.)

      In most of the WoD books, there are either short examples of play or little very short stories about a stat.What might be pretty cool, is to maybe have some people's names used in the book, or a future book in some of the examples for abilities, or some of the little background fluff. That might be a great little tidbit for pledges between the $50 and $100 mark. Might also be really cool to get sort of a few page treat of Hunter's Hunted 2, sort of like the nWoD "Ready Made" groups. Both of these could be either to fill the gap between the $50 and $100 mark, or perhaps for an additional support? I like the leftover dice thing, but I'm honestly not sure there are enough, as last I remember the oWoD dice all go for really high price still. Something else that could be really cool might be to have the book have an extra page, and in the introduction story have it presented as if it where to us specifically. Nothing overly pecial, but sort of a generic fill your name into the line of a templated letter, in character.

      A friend just suggested a slipcase to hold V20 and the Companion.

    11. Missing_small

      Creator H on February 16, 2012

      A bulk tier would be great, for retailers or for people who have a coterie just waiting to go. Custom titles in the book would be fun, but space may not allow. Perhaps some older PDF content could be made available, or prints of artwork from the book (as rights allow), or heck -- leftover old WoD merchandise, like dice and the such.

    12. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Jeremy Miller on February 16, 2012

      Or you could offer pdf licences for the upcoming products = CotR or Hunters Hunted. Unless you're considering using Kickstarter to offer limited editions of those as well?

    13. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Jeremy Miller on February 16, 2012

      Some people have friends they might want to share the Companion with, especially if their characters feature in it. Maybe you could offer some additional PDF licenses?

      As far as I know, you can change pledges to other reward tiers. Justin and I are going to try and talk about all your great ideas tonight- a a couple of our own, but we both have Stuff that comes up, so stick around if it takes a couple days to add rewards.

      Here's something you might be able to help with: it was suggested we do a Retailer Bulk tier that had like 5 Deluxe Editions for an amount that would let the retailer make some money on reselling the books. If you are or know a store owner that might be interested, how about you or the retailer letting me know if that's something good.

      A matched set of Deluxe V20 RPG and Companion books would really, really make my day...

      Creator Kairam Ahmed Hamdan on February 16, 2012

      I only hope these latecomers don't get a better deal then us early backers. Please save us the opportunity to change our pledges if we like.

      Best.

      Creator Chris Leland on February 16, 2012

      How about a copy signed Justin Achilli, Richard Thomas or anyone else involved in the book?

      Clan Pins I miss those.

    19. Box.small

      Creator Jessica Gains on February 16, 2012

      From my post at WW forums --perhaps for those who did not get it, include a POD copy of V20 for a $125/$150 pledge? Also, maybe on option to get an art print with your book for one of the artworks used in the book to come along with your Deluxe Companion?

    20. Kkk.small

      Creator Kairam Ahmed Hamdan on February 16, 2012

      WoDMMO character likeness/name.

      Agreed upon development of a character based on name/likeness.

      Sketch inside the cover by a random artist or a selected one.

      Artbook.

      My suggestions on the project's comments.

    21. Missing_small

      Creator Mark Owens on February 16, 2012

      How about your name or character name used in a rules example or in an SAS?

      Creator David Felt on February 16, 2012

      The character model idea is fantastic, I only wish I saw it sooner. A bit more detail would have been nice however, such as if you are going to be a penny sized spec or larger.

    23. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Charlie Cantrell on February 16, 2012

      I can get behind all of the above. Maybe another would be having your character make a cameo in a future book where it would be appropriate.

    24. Missing_small

      Creator Karrie White on February 16, 2012

      I love the idea of you/your character being used as a model. Maybe have one option being an art design of yours is used? Like a character concept?

    25. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Ajay Pollarine on February 16, 2012

      A copy of a clan book of your favorite clan might not be a bad one either

    26. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Ajay Pollarine on February 16, 2012

      oooh, I second the Clan Pins idea

      Here's just a few:
      • Tickets to The Grand Masquerade 2012
      • VIP tickets to The Grand Masquerade 2012
      • A private V20 game run for a group of 4 at Gen Con/DragonCon/etc. 2012 (getting there, and badge is up to them.)
      • A guided tour of CCP/White Wolf Georgia offices (but they have to get themselves to the offices)
      • A likeness/character to be used in WoDMMO
      • Free Limited Deluxe Edition of W20 when it's released
      • A $30 in White Wolf PDFs from DriveThruRPG
      • A character sketch by Richard Thomas (or other artist willing to draw it)
      • White Wolf/CCP swag that folks actually want. ;)
      ... those are just a few. Unfortunately, I've already given my $, so it's up to others to give their part now. :)
