New Higher-Level Rewards

The Bestiary has hit the second stretch goal! 

Thank you all very much for this support, it means we're no longer sweating the print run quite so much. Because of that leeway (and some backer feedback!), I'm expanding the rewards for the higher tiers, which have rather sparse up to this point. If this happens to convince a few people to up their pledges, well, so be it!

The new additional rewards are:

Fellforged ($50)

Your book will now be a fine hardcover edition! More durable, heftier, and less prone to wear and tear. 

Isonade ($75)

You get a hardcover Bestiary, as the Fellforged tier does, plus a copy of the Complete Kobold Guide to Game Design collection of design advice by Baur, Cook, Greenwood, Stackpole, and friends.

Steam Golem ($100)

You get a hardcover Bestiary, as the Fellforged tier does, plus a copy of the full-color Midgard Campaign Setting softcover.

Cave Dragon ($250)

You already got a hardcover Bestiary before, so we really to make this change worthwhile for you. You get an autographed Complete Kobold Guide to Game Design, plus 10 monster art prints from the book, a rare print edition of Defenders of Midgard (which may never have another print edition), and the full-color Midgard Campaign Setting in the limited-edition hardcover.

New Digital Tier

In response to your requests, we've added an all-digital reward level, the Digital Beast tier. This includes the Bestiary for 4th Edition D&D, the Iron Secret mini-adventure, all three Bonus Bestiaries, and the Defenders of Midgard (assuming we reach the stretch goal). It is yours for $30.

Thank you all for spreading the word on the 4E Midgard Bestiary, and I hope you find the new rewards tempting. Let me know what you like or dislike about them in the comments, there's less than 2 weeks left until the Kickstarter ends!

      Wolfgang: Why not let people pledge extra to buy the other books as extras?

    2. Creator Adam Page on July 4, 2012

      OK, would there be an option to have the Campaign Setting in digital form for the Digital Beast level?

    3. Creator Kobold Press on July 3, 2012

      Adam, the Steam Golem level includes the rewards from the original list, plus the specific additions in this update. So, that reward now includes

      1) the hardcover Bestiary,
      2) the PDF extras, and
      3) the softcover Midgard campaign setting (296 pages in color).

      It does not include the Complete Guide to Game Design, which is a softcover that usually runs $30 on its own. If you want the design guide instead of the Midgard setting book, I'd recommend pledging at the Isonade tier.

      Wolfgnag, can you just confirm that the Steam Golem level includes all the bonuses from the Fellforged and Isonade levels - i.e. the Complete guide to game design, and the campaign setting. Is the game design guide softcover?
