Update #6

New Goals and Non-Book Stuff

Another day, another two goals shattered. Ho hum. Just a day in the life of having the best fans in the entire world. Seriously, you guys, we actually accelerated the rate of funding over the last 24 hours compared to the 48 before that. That defies all common sense.

So that means that Paladin Blues is funded for a full print run, and we're onward to the final (reprint) frontier. If we get to reprint Don't Split the Party, we will have every OOTS book in print at the same time for the first time since...ever. No, really, we've never had all 7 books in print at the same time before. Just think, people who have never heard of OOTS now will be able to walk into their local gaming store a year from now and buy the entire run in one purchase (well, except for Snips, Snails, and Dragon Tales, which is an Ookoodook-and-this-pledge-drive exclusive book). And that's thanks to you.

Now, looking at the chart, you'll see I've added several goals. The lines for Don't Split the Party are in place, showing at what level of funding I'll put them up for rewards and then how much it will cost to print, minimum and full-size. Same as we did with Paladin Blues, really. But I think more enticing are the two purple lines. If we get to the magic number of $222,222, Mystery Prize #2 will be added to almost every order (and the lowest pledges will be able to increase slightly to get it, too). And Mystery Prize #3...Mystery Prize #3 is so mysterious, even *I* don't know what it is yet! But hey, at that point, who knows what sort of crazy things I might be willing to commit to? Haley sure doesn't:

Speaking of which, I've added a new premium reward for people who don't want (or need) any of the books. For a pledge of $240, you can get a complete set of every ornament that we've put out in the "snowfall" series, from the first in 2004 to this past year's 2011 edition. That's eight different ceramic ornaments that are no longer available in our regular shop. And more than that, I'll sign the back of each of them with a permanent marker, and probably doodle a stick figure or something. You can also add a signed copy of every book to the same package for another $262, if you want, or we can work out a partial package if you already have some of them. Don't worry, they'll ship in a separate box to protect the ornaments. That's a lot of signing, though, so I'm only putting 15 of these packages up.

Finally, we did a large mega-poster set in 2010, featuring every character in the OOTS (at the time) on two giant 24 x 36 prints (you can still order the last few here). Adding a rolled up poster to this pledge drive turned out to be too much logistical hassle, though. On the other hand, I've gotten emails from people saying that they love the images but don't have room on their walls for a four foot wide poster set. Weird, I know. So I've just made a deal to print a number of smaller 8 x 10 art prints on high-quality heavyweight paper, exclusively for this pledge drive and suitable for framing (with enough border so that you don't crop the image when you do). Here's what it looks like:

You can get it for a pledge of $25, and I even dropped in a few signed ones for $50. You can add one book to either package, but not more than that; too many books in an envelope will bend it. But don't worry if you want to a bunch of books and the print, because we're including one free for every pledge above $250. All you have to do is increase your pledge (if it isn't there already) and you'll get one slipped in, on the house.

Finally, just to give you guys a heads up, I won't be making an update over the weekend unless we break through another goal. So, I'll probably be making an update over the weekend. But maybe not two! But probably. As always, thanks for keeping this thing going, and I'll see you on the other side of a line.

      All of the signed stuff is selling out before I even get the update that they exist. Any chance that when we break the next goal, we can have either more of just War and XPs signed or more War and XPs + something other than books? We already own all of the books except for War and XPs, so unsigned packages for other books don't give us much.

      I get to go home next weekend ("home is where the books are stored" :-) ), which will let me figure out which books I already have (I know I have PCs and SoD). After that I'll know how much I need to order. Good thing the drive doesn't end until the 21st. :-)

      Creator Wolf with Wings on January 29, 2012

      I'm gonna guess you're a tad low, Andrew, I think it'll hit $350K since I think a small horde of folks are waiting for it to be made available to place 'everything and the kitchen sink' orders for the whole set of books in one go. :)

    4. Elissa%20%20andrew.small

      Creator Andrew Lohmann on January 28, 2012

      I presume everyone realizes that when the $255K level is reached, that $300K will be overtaken that day as orders will be increased/added for "Don't Split." The pledge curve is probably going to start to flatten out for a day or two now, and then it will shoot nearly straight up. So, anyone up for a game? See who guesses closest to the ending dollar amount of total pledged 24 hours after Rich offers "Don't Split."

      Given 4,000 backers (by that time), and 50% wanting the book, and the book costing $35 (a guess), I see a jump of about $70K, bringing the total up to $325K. And oddly, I'm probably being conservative, and while the realist in me shudders, I'm going to pad my guess a bit and say $333K.

      (OK, back to work...)

      Upped my pledge slightly without swapping rewards (though I could have done so). For two reasons:
      1) I'm doing my part towards Mystery 2 (and thus the only other book I don't have being added to rewards shortly after;)
      2) It's not a huge amount, and I'm set to up it the moment Don't Split the Party is a reward anyway.

      Glad to see this is so successful Rich! Hope things aren't moving too fast, and that the run-up is looking promising. I'd hate to see a repeat of last years stall with SSaDT.

    18. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Nikolai Tuuri on January 28, 2012

      @Rune: Could be that, more or less. Or it could be to recoup Rich's own investments. (He said the first book reprint was cheaper because it didn't include the $16k that he had saved up for that purpose already.) Also, some people might take back their pledges, and plenty of pledge money will probably go to international shipping which also needs to be covered up for.
      But I think it should be safe to say that surplus cash will be put to good OotS use :D

    19. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Rune Ulset Furberg on January 28, 2012

      As this drive is created for getting all OotS books currently out of print reprinted (and we are perilously fast nearing that goal), I presume that amounts surpassing $283,120 (except for possible costs for making Mystery Price #3) will go to printing the as of yet unnamed and undated fifth OotS compilation?

      Like many others, I donated a small amount, took my small prize, and was happy to help. But looking over the list of prizes, I spotted that 5K amount, and laughed at the idea that someone would be rich enough to do that.
      ....Then I looked today and it was sold out. Truly, this comic has great fans. Looking forward to seeing how high we can go, and if we can get him to graffiti a wall somewhere for $500,000!

I guess I'm just a bit trigger-happy, seeing the meteoric growth of the project funding total and wanting to snag everything in a big gulp. :) Good luck with the project (not that you need it!) and I hope to see the full set available soon.

    30. Pwicon2.small

      Creator Rich Burlew on January 27, 2012

      @Steven Merrick: We can't offer that package because one of those books doesn't exist currently. When it's going to be reprinted, we will. Until then, we already have a package for everything that currently is going to be in print, at $192. But keep in mind that MOST of my customers are people who have bought one or more books in the past, and thus only need a few to complete their collections. And as I've explained, I can't retroactively take back the rewards that were present at the beginning of the drive, when the only book available was Book 3.

    31. Missing_small

      Creator JDWarner on January 27, 2012

      Tiered rewards are becoming more common on Kickstarter, but are uncommon enough that sometimes people get confused or annoyed if they aren't explained very well. Case in point: the currently-running campaign for the game For The Win (which is pretty cool, and you should totally check out)! Rich might want check out that campaign, for when Mystery Reward #2 is inevitably shattered into millions of glittery pieces.

      Ok, I have to admit, the choices for rewards are getting staggering. Am I the only one who hopes at a certain funding level, we get an option for, "One of every single OOtS book printed + Reward PDFs/etc?"

      Honestly, figuring out prices and 'extra' amounts to be added is getting a wee bit confusing. Just give me an option for volumes -1 to 4, +D, +PDF! ;)

      Two idea for a new reward:
      The chance to help Rich Burlew and/or Ookoodook organize all the shipping of all this (and pick up a signed set of shinies)! - $(cost of shinies, you pay the airfare/hotel/etc.) Or $(cost of shinies + a 'safe' cost of hotel, airfare, etc.)
      A new event-exclusive magnet for a convention (anime, role-playing, video game, or sci-fi) of your choice! (Rich Burlew not guaranteed to show up with them) - Seriously, I bet someone would pay $10000 for this... A game publisher for their e3 booth? Sakura-Con? Not even sure yet.
