About this project
Starship Valkyrie is a live action, sci fi experience in the Los Angeles area. You take the role of a crew-member on a 22nd century spaceship work together as a team to overcome obstacles, solve puzzles and defeat enemies. New players frequently say that it is a unique gaming experience.
Valkyrie has been running for three years with roughly the same rules. Updates have been on an ad hoc, on-the-run sort-of basis. This is not satisfactory. Valkyrie requires and deserves a comprehensive overhaul of the rules.
The 2.0 ruleset is already underway but it needs a great deal more work. What's more, it needs a deadline. Won't you add your voice to those demanding that this worthy project be completed?
Once the new rules are in a finished form the way opens up for more Valkyrie-related projects, including a worldbook, and promotion of Valkyrie to other cities and countries.
Risks and challenges
Starship Valkyrie, as a business concern, runs on a shoe-string. That's why crowd-sourced funding is required to produce the new ruleset. Tapping away at it in-between a hectic schedule of events just isn't cutting it.
All of my years of gaming experience and passion is going into the Starship Valkyrie storyverse and game. I work hardest when I'm doing it for a community - for an audience. I want you to join that audience and let me know that you value what I'm doing.
With inspiration from you I really can't fail.
Thank you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I've pledged 50.00 or more, but now I realize I want a PDF as well and Kickstarter won't let me pledge again. What can I do?
That's an oversight on my part. I should change the the pledge descriptions but Kickstarter won't allow a change to the description of a pledge package once it has Backers.
*If you pledge $50.00 or more, you will also receive a PDF of the rules.*
I should have made that explicit to start with. Sorry.
