    DOUBLE AGENT This is a new level of support we're creating because of a specific request from a backer. This level is kind of a grab-bag, somewhere between Silva Family Oligarch and Revolutionary FLT Research Team. It might be that you don't want five books, but you want five digital art prints. Maybe you just want one book, but you want a custom character sketch or a glossy version of some of the art in the book. At this level, you contact us and we will work something out. Regardless, you get the digital art pack and PDFs, at least one copy of the book, you are still thanked in the front of the book with the playtesters and can still have input on a setting element if you wish. Obviously, we also still owe you a big thank-you in person.

    REVOLUTIONARY FTL RESEARCH TEAM
    For your whole gaming group! We send you five signed books to distribute among your friends - including one signed and hand-numbered limited-edition hardcover book, full PDFs for each of you (up to 5), digital art packs, thank-yous for you and your gaming group in the front of the book, and we owe you all huge thank-yous if we meet in person (for example, at Origins Game Fair at the Jolly Roger Games booth). We will also send you a glossy print of any piece of art from the book that you choose. You will be able to contribute to and edit the Parsec setting wiki once it goes live, and we are happy to consult with anyone in your gaming group who would like to help design a setting element.

    VISIONARY INTERSTELLAR EXPLORERS
    A signed and hand-numbered limited-edition hardcover book for you and a second one for your best friend, up to 7 signed books for your gaming group, PDFs for all of your players (up to 7), a custom Parsec t-shirt designed by our artist, and an off-world colony named and designed with your input will be added to the setting. If we meet you at an Origins Game Fair (or anywhere else), we’ll invite you to dinner with the writer/designer, artist and publisher, or any of the above individually. If you choose, you can have input on a major setting element or NPC in every upcoming Parsec supplement. You will also be able to contribute to and edit the Parsec setting wiki when it goes live. Lastly, the Parsec artist has offered to provide you with a free custom character sketch, delivered to you in digital and hard copy format, in addition to one of his own originals from the art used in the book (while supplies last).

    OUR OWN PERSONAL HEROES
    At this point, if we had a kitchen sink, we would throw it at you. You get: PDFs for your players, friends and family (we’ll send it to 10 people of your choice); 3 signed and hand-numbered limited-edition hardcover books; 10 signed copies of the game book; 3 custom Parsec shirts; dinner on us any time we see you at a convention or elsewhere; input on a major element in all upcoming Parsec supplements; custom character sketches for you and each member of your gaming group (up to 7); and 3 art originals (while supplies last!) or the original artwork used on the book cover (obviously, first dibs on the cover art goes to the first person to participate at this level). When the setting wiki goes live, you will be co-editor. In addition Doug Hagler, the writer and designer of the game, will run at least one 4-hour-minimum game session for you and your gaming group, in person if it is close enough to drive, or over Skype, Google+ Hangout, or your choice of free conferencing software. You can create your own characters, or he can make some for you, and it will be whatever kind of one-shot game you want: espionage, space piracy, urban insurgency, gonzo surrealism - anything. He’ll even buy you pizza.
