    Early Bird: Times are tough and we couldn't get the Earth Mages to erect enough barriers to prevent Iginor from falling off the fiscal cliff (or even those lofty-headed Air Mages to cast a decent Float spell). But only so many can be saved from the abyss! So for just $6, if you're among the lucky 500, you'll get a digital DRM-free copy of Mages Initiation for the PC and access to the private backer forums!
