Stretch Goal #1 unlocked!

Posted by wfincher (Creator)
Hello Everyone! This is pretty cool, we hit the first stretch goal on the last day of the first week! As promised, you will now be able to choose between the original cover and the Black Edition. I'm still working on the art for the black cover but I'll reveal that at a later time so you can decide which you prefer. Now, on to the next stretch goal! Stretch Goal #2: Map and Bookmark Upgrade at $7000.00. If/when we hit this mark, the map of Lordell City is expanding into the folding style of the Harry Potter Marauder's Map, with the city in the center and detailed site images and info on the outside folds. Then I'm enlarging the bookmark about double the normal size, and adding more quick reference data on the reverse side. I might even add a ribbon if it doesn't break the bank. The stretch goals after the merch upgrade is when things get real interesting though. I will be including PDF Ebook copies, and I am still working out the final costs involved, but I plan to introduce custom cards (amongst other things) that would augment new items and monsters and spells for when you re- read the book, to make things just that much more interesting. Take care everyone, hopefully I'll be updating you again soon with more great news!

      @AstralWanderer: That's a fair point, but I would add that there are others who like physical stuff and will pay a premium for it (if they can afford to... I'd have to admit that with this and Holdfast I am skirting perilously close to my limit).

      I also want to say that as attractive as a deluxe, printed copy would be, a set of custom cards to use in conjunction with the book sounds even more interesting. I'd like to hear more about that.

      It may be worth adding PDF-only levels for this KS (as per the original) as some would-be backers have been put off by physical postage costs, see http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blackchickenstudios/holdfast-a-gamebook-of-dwarven-vengeance/posts/479556#comment-3162628 for one example.
