Update #20

Yes, I Got Kickstarter's Permission

Apparently, you all really like the idea of things getting stuck to you. I haven't crunched any numbers, but that burst of pledging seemed like it just about equaled our best days at the beginning of this. I think what I'm most excited about is how many people are buying the Adventure Game for the first time. There's going to be a lot of OOTS gaming going on a few months from now.

So where are we with the chart, since I missed updating yesterday? Well, you already blew past the next two goals I had all ready: increasing the print runs again, and a necessary increase in the amount of swag that I need to purchase in order to keep up with these pledges! That leaves us with Mystery Prize #7, which will be digital, only available to backers getting the PDFs, and will be of particular use to people who play D&D. Wonder away. Then we have the line we thought we had crossed before Double Fine rightfully kicked everyone's ass: putting OOTS in the Top Five all-time Kickstarter projects ever and staying there for at least a week or so before we get blasted out again.

And the last line on the chart so far? People have been asking me for things like commemorative t-shirts, commemorative mugs, that sort of thing...but those won't fit in everyone's envelopes, and changing 9000+ shipping options is more work than I can handle. So how about a commemorative patch? If we reach a stunning $850,000, I'll produce the below 3" patch—or one very much like it, if the stitching place tells me I need to alter some aspects—embroidered with the OOTS title, the Kickstarter logo, the year, and Elan's eternal reminder that you participated


These patches will be available for every backer to add to their pledge for an amount To Be Determined once we get there. How's that for a permanent reminder of this whirlwind fundraising adventure? And that brings us to today's chart:


With only a handful of days left, expect the next few days to include some posts regarding what will happen after the drive is over. There'll be a lot of logistics for me to handle (and you to remember), so I ask in advance that everyone be patient with me. That shouldn't be a problem, though. You've proven to me that you are the best fans in the comic-reading world, and you probably could beat up other webcomics' fanbases if you wanted to, but you won't because whatever, man. Whatever.

--Rich Burlew

P.S. Comic will be up at some point today, but not right now.
P.P.S. Just so you know, Erfworld is having their own Kickstarter.
P.P.P.S. I meant if you wanted to pledge to it if you have any money leftover, not to beat up their fanbase. Especially since that would involve a great many of you punching yourselves in the face.
P.P.P.P.S. In case that was not clear, do not punch yourself in the face.

      Assuming you meant patch + sticky shticks for $10, your math is correct. The best way to get the Shortening with that package is to order it via Ookoodook. Or, you can get another account and get the $36 level which would give you MORE SWAG!!! I don't think there is a way for you to get it cheaper.

      @MItchell message Rich with What you want to do and ask what the total needs to be. You can add the Art Print to some pledge levels for just 15 itself (I am doing that with the 36 dollar pledge level on an account.) Should be able to get an answer to your specific situation. Also need to add some $ if you want patch(s).

      Creator Mitchell J. Friedman on February 17, 2012

      Okay I'm still confused. I'm pledged at the $222 level but in addition I want the patch, the art print, the sticky shticks and the shortening (I already have the game). To get the sticky shticks and the shortening I just add $10. To get the art print I just need to pledge more than $250. So does that mean I pledge $251? or $261? And how the heck do I get the shortening?

      Creator Xavier Perez on February 17, 2012

      A good rule of thumb to solve the patch dilemma would be, each patch costs $X but you can only buy as many patches as books and/or posters you are buying (minimum 1 for those just buying magnets).

      That way, if people have chipped in to get different sort of stuff for each one, then each guy can get one patch.

      The guys who got the D&D party crayons should also be allowed to buy 6 (given that there's a possibility the whole party chipped in to get it).

      @ Erik Ottosen, lol tell me about it. I rolled a 20 on my diplomacy check but the wife will definitely get a re-roll when the credit card bill comes.

      But keep it up guys. Rich is still pouring on a lot of effort into both this and the daily comics ( it seems like V is doing the scripting with the amount of speech recently)

    13. Patch.small

      Creator John Russell on February 17, 2012

      BTW my other theory for where Roy came from is that Rich will eventually restack the graph comics in chronological order with the first at the top - thus Roy falls from update #13 to update #20.

    14. Patch.small

      Creator John Russell on February 17, 2012

      While I think topping $1m is highly unlikely, there are three bumps to come:
      1) A lot of people are waiting to see how much the patch will be before upping their pledge;
      2) The last-minute changes bump, which I understand is common for Kickstarter; and
      3) The "over-the-line" bump - if bump 2) gets us within striking distance of the goal I suspect a lot of people will increase their pledges (again) just to cross the line.
      Not long now...

    16. Missing_small

      Creator Michael Mayer on February 17, 2012

      A patch looks promising. I keep upping my pledge whenever there are new goodies added. I have all the books already, so for me it is the smaller stuff.

    17. Missing_small

      Creator Erik Ottosen on February 17, 2012

      $950k would bring us top 3 for sure... I think it can happen. I know I've pledged what I can (and my paycheck's *weeping* between this and the PS Vita coming out...), but hopefully we'll get a few more people out of the woodworks.

    18. Missing_small

      Creator Adrian on February 17, 2012

      @Dale - while I'd like to see nothing less than crossing that 1mil mark, at the rate this fund raiser has been going, unless we have a prolonged and dramatic increase in funding, I'm pretty certain we'll hit roughly 950k. And that's if we keep up the same pace, which has been very strong.

    19. Koala.small

      Creator TT on February 17, 2012

      @ Dale Matthie - problem is most of the fans are already in. The higher value pledges and rewards are already sold out. The addition of the the higher value swag packs and deluxe edition games helps allow existing pledges to be upgraded and newer pledges to come in at a higher value. BUT we only have 4 days left. 850k looks doable especially if the remaining 200 odd sets of the game are taken but 1 million might be a bit much in 4 days. Thats 170k to go...

    20. Missing_small

      Creator Dale Matthie on February 17, 2012

      Not without clearing it with Rich I think. KS really does not have a way to do it within the system. Depending on what you are doing, it is almost as easy to just go with 2 accounts (unless you are overseas and taking a big shipping hit.

      Creator Sarah Vee on February 16, 2012

      @Johannes - I'm not Rich (or rich ;-) ) but he is shipping everything via flat-rate envelopes and containers. So as long as they fit inside, they will cost the same. I can't imagine the coloring books and HP pad and patch will add more than half an inch of thickness to the three books so it would presumably be fine to fit in the same flat-rate package. That's why he's only doing thin, flat items as freebies and add-ons.

    32. Theone.small

      Creator James Auwaerter on February 16, 2012

      I've already added the money for Sticky Shticks, and I'll be adding money for the patch if it reaches that level. Keep spreading the word around so we can all give Rich more money!

      is $10 international shipping cost still valid for the print only special, with all the new swag added (2 coloring books, HP pad, patch, etc.)?

    36. Missing_small

      Creator Thomas Lehmann on February 16, 2012

      @Alexander: in addition to mitigating the fixed costs associated with patches (which include the admin costs of finding/dealing with a supplier, adding an order line for them, tallying the orders, sorting them, etc.), remember the objective of all this is to raise operating capital for GitP (to support the reprints and offer new products, such as the coloring book), not be an inefficient OOTS online storefront. So, associating this with a new objective line both covers Rich's fixed costs for the patches and raises more capital. By essentially charging buyers the marginal cost of the patch (not the average cost) on the orders, Rich is also covered if the number desired is high.

    37. Ks_profile.small

      Creator parmeisan on February 16, 2012

      @Alexander: He needs to know that he can afford to get them made first. If he just offers them up as a reward before he has that, then he risks selling, say, 800 of 1000 patches and makes $4000 but spent $5000-$6000 and his profit margin (if he added one - I really hope he has) is now a debt.

    38. Stickittome_sarahveee_ks.small

      Creator Sarah Vee on February 16, 2012

      I have a little suggestion for one of the next updates... possibly along with an updated rewards chart. Entitle it something like "Last chance to add swag and extras to your pledge!" And reiterate how to get the extra add-ons (patches, Shticky, extra coloring book, and so forth). Remind people that they need to add the money for this BEFORE the drive ends and they can't change their mind later when they get the survey...

    40. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Greg Dougherty on February 16, 2012

      Have you folks heard of "Advanced Reader Copies" (ARCs)? In order to get book reviews to come out at the same time as the book, publishers send out ARCs to various people. They are all, of course, marked "Not For Resale". They are often, of course, resold. A David Weber ARC can go for $400 or more. Or, at least, they could. Jim Baen, publisher of Baen's Books say this, and had a brilliant idea. So now Baen books sells eARCs (electronic Advanced Reader Copies) at $15 / each, months before the books come out. Baen books has made hundreds of thousands of dollars off of doing this, tens of thousands of readers have gotten their "fixes" early, and ARCs for Baen David Weber books sell for more reasonable prices, since now it's collectors who are buying them, rather than rabid fans desperate to find out what happens in the next story. The non-Baen ARCs, of course, still go for insane amounts of money.
      Which is a long winded why to say you can treat the patches like ARCs, or like eARCs. The later way give @Rich the money, the former way gives the money to whoever wants the money more than they want the patches. NOTHING is going to keep people from selling them.

      Just upped my pledge from the $29 level to the $295 level, because Rich deserves it. I've been enjoying OotS for almost a decade( yep, Rich has been entertaining us that long), and never really had the spare cash to buy anything before. So instead of buying just SoD( my original plan), I went ahead and got them all. Thanks for years of fun Rich, and I look forward to the stories to come.

    42. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Greg Dougherty on February 16, 2012

      @Cole, seriously, who cares? Are you harmed because someone who didn't participate in the pledge drive pays more than they would have had to pay to participate in the drive in order to get a patch? Really? How?
      Look, do I want to buy extra and sell them later? no. Am I harmed by someone else buying extra and selling them later? No. Is Rich harmed? No, not so long as he sets a reasonable price. So how are YOU harmed? And if no one is harmed, other than the idiot who pays too much to buy a patch to celebrate something he did not do, then who cares?
      I promise you, no matter WHAT Rich does, there will be people who get the patch who did not participate in the Drive. Someone will stick the patch on something, then later on lose it, sell it, or give it away. Someone will buy their one and only patch, and then sell it (the more restricted the patches are, the more valuable they become on the secondary market. The more people are willing to pay to get one, the more likely it is that someone will sell them one. It's basic economics).
      After all, there will even be a "legitimate" secondary market. Someone loses their patch, and wants to replace it.
      @Rich, you honor the "limited" part buy letting them be bought by drive participants only, and only during the drive. If 10 people grouped together, and each one wants a patch, let them buy 10. And if some idiot wants to buy 10 patches as an "investment" to sell later, let him. My daughter can sell him some of her "investment" Beanie Babies at the same time. The more you fight to restrict sales, the more likely it will be that sales will happen, and they'll be for stupid amounts of money. Just let it go. It's not worth your concern.

      @Minh-Anh - Okay, so perhaps 10,000 was an over estimate. I imagine he'd offer dice to only the people who's shipping boxes could fit it, having said that, you can flat pack dice easy enough - small ziplock bag with a bit of bubble wrap to protect the books, and they'll fit in most envelopes.

      Slopes, curves, clearly non-euclidean space is involved since Roy has fallen off the bottom of the chart right around the warp and is now falling onto the chart (and the dragon) from the top. What is this points and lines and slopes minutia one cites when the entire space continuum is at risk....

      Creator Cody James Christopher on February 16, 2012

      I see custom dice sets around the internet for $15-20 USD a pop (I assume that includes some profit for the seller). I know I can't just quote those numbers off like it's immediately a feasible thing. There is obvious more complexity behind adding such a reward.

      But man, If we could add $15 to an order for a dice set, or $30 for two, I reckon you'd see an immediate spike as 10000 odd people jump on that (translating in to a 150k-300k boost....)
      Just a thought.

    50. Patch.small

      Creator John Russell on February 16, 2012

      I think once Rich actually sets an amount for the patches you'll see a spike as people adjust their pledges. Assuming the patch is in the $5-10 range and a goodly percentage of backers want them, that's potentially a $50k+ bump right there even before the final push. So maybe mid-$900k range is possible after all, if we can break the $850k mark in the next two days.
