      I'm in with T.W: I'd love the book. If/when it is published, I'd prefer a pdf..... and I wouldn't mind paying for it because you/your team does thoughtful, high-quality work.

      Really sorry to see this project cancelled. I, too hope you'll publish the book. Thanks for the offer of sending a free pdf copy, but I'd happily pay for the book if that means you make more awesome stuff.

    4. Slaine Fullerton on May 5, 2015

      Rather unfortunate that this project was cancelled; I hope you can still publish it somewhere down the line.

      @ creator : I hope you'll be back soon. Your project desserves it.

    6. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on May 5, 2015

      It sucks. But I made the right decision. Sometimes a project needs to fail, so it can be better the next time around.

    7. Timothy Davis on May 5, 2015

      Agreed. I was really hoping to add this to my collection. it would have made a great reference tool

    8. Eric Lamoureux on May 5, 2015

      What?? Man, that's so sad. I really believed in this project and was looking forward to the adventure packs.

    9. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on May 2, 2015

      Oh, I forgot to mention it here. Keep your eyes peeled for the next designer Journal! I'll be discussing various themes in this book, and rules that help reinforce them.

    10. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on May 2, 2015

      You guys are awesome! Thanks for your support, and thank,s dereck, for the promotion!

    12. Timothy Davis on May 2, 2015

      Alright, Finally backed it!... Hoping this is blows up in the end with a lot of supporters backing like crazy until we cross the finish line so we can get all the goodies. Fingers crossed everyone :D

      @David Jarvis: I love the red/black look. Besides, you can never have too many dice. ;)

    14. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 28, 2015

      Thanks so much Serena!

      Your latest update has me sold on the dice. Just moved up one tier to get them and one more adventure.

    16. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 28, 2015

      Great idea for a game, David!

      I'll think on this some and see if I can't help you flesh your idea out a bit more.

      One of the things I got sidetracked with is a superhero setting where all the heroes and villains made deals with Faustian style demons either knowingly or unknowingly. So for 10 years the world has experienced a street level style super hero world till finally the first of the bargains get called on.

      The super's fight back against the collectors resulting in the demonic invasion into the world through portals much like you described. I picture cities with martial law enforced by the now super hero overlords as they desperately try to hold onto their very souls.

      The question I have in my mind is would I prefer to have the players being new supers who have made pacts like the super's of old not realizing the consequences till later. Then they could lead resistances against the overbearing super hero overlords while maintaining the safety of the city. On the other hand I could have them be the super hero overlords and see how they would protect the city from their mistakes of the past so to speak.

      Either way it would culminate in the entering of a hell portal to deal with the other side.

      Okay back to planning for the red dawn meets warcraft game.

    18. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 27, 2015

      scratch Incarri... I'll have to come up with a name that hasn't been used. But the core idea is there.

      David Comer on April 27, 2015

      Well my group did request a warcraft style game, and warhammer is the origin of warcraft. Methinks I'm borrowing this for saturday. I need to brush up on my Russian orcish dialects.

    20. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 27, 2015

      Here's a little more:

      Battle lords of the Morosh Gorahn ride through the portal, leading the bloodthirsty orcs of the skullhammer squadron into battle against the unsuspecting inhabitants of Compton. On their heels come the dreaded Incarri doomspeakers, who quickly set up magical barriers to protect the portal...

      It definitely should Feel Like Red Dawn. :)

      David Comer on April 27, 2015

      So when are you running that and how can I get in on it?

      Thinking more from the perspective of running it I think I'd want to focus heavily on the red dawn aspect of it. "Is that an attack helicopter or a Pit Fiend?" In fact I can already see some resource gathering survival type missions coming together in my mind.

    22. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 27, 2015

      so here's a genre mashup I'm interested in exploring:

      All across the world, dark portals open, spilling out Orcs and Trolls and Demons by the hundreds of thousands, overwhelming small cities easily, creating outposts to guard the portals. Think Red Dawn and War of The Worlds Meet Warhammer.

      Could be a pretty interesting mini setting for Codex Infernus!

    23. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 26, 2015

      Have I said how much I appreciate you guys lately?

    24. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 23, 2015

      No worries Serena :) I'm just grateful that you pledged :)

      @David: I'm glad you liked my article. I hope this makes it.

      Once I see the mockup for the die I might up my pledge. Not sure I'd go for the Crusader tier. I'm on the fence about all the adventures. It doesn't help that I'm at like 10 projects right now.

    26. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 23, 2015

      The Crusader Pledge is the best value for your money, unless you only want digital stuff, then I'd suggest the Howling banshee; also a VERY good deal.

    27. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 23, 2015

      Absolutely! I also hope to have the concept image for the Wild Die available next week for everyone to look at!

      Thanks for your support!

    28. David Anthony Smithson on April 23, 2015

      Just to confirm, crusader pledges will get all the stretch goals?

    29. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 23, 2015

      Wow, Thanks Serena! That's awesome!

      So we're over 6k! that's so great! keep an eye out for an update soonish. I have an announcement to make ;)

    30. Monica Valentinelli on April 23, 2015

      Yay! We're over 100 backers! WOO!

    31. Marco Beltramino on April 23, 2015

      I can't wait to read it!. This could be a huge soucebook for every setting in SW!

    32. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 22, 2015

      Thank you for supporting it! We can't do this without you.

      I plan on using this for my Fantasy Dice campaign. It is quite easy to convert Savage Worlds material and my Epic Campaign which I've been running for over 15 years is leading up to a major confrontation with an army of Demons. Thank you for this Campaign. It is just what I need.

    34. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 22, 2015

      Wow! Thank you sir!

    35. Rob Onofrey on April 22, 2015

      I posted it on the Savage Worlds subreddit. Hopefully you'll get some new backers from there.

      @David Jarvis: Just wait until tomorrow. I've got something special planned. ;)

    37. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 22, 2015

      I just want to hop in and say Thanks to everyone for backing! You're amazing folks!

    38. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 22, 2015

      Yep! Spread the word! this is a killer book!

      1/4 of the way there.

    40. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 22, 2015

      Heck yeah! This would work great for Deadlands!!

    41. Rob Onofrey on April 22, 2015

      I can't wait to use this for Deadlands.

    42. Monica Valentinelli on April 22, 2015

      Woo! Let's get this hellacious party started. I'm excited to be a part of this project, and hope you all enjoy what we've put together for you. ROCK!

    43. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 22, 2015

      WOOT closing in on 4000! Let's spread the word guys!

    44. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 21, 2015

      Eric, they're basically add-ons you'll get to pick after the kickstarter has ended. We'll send out a survey, and you get to choose which one(s) you want.

    45. Eric Lamoureux on April 21, 2015

      At the pledge level it says we'll be able to add adventure packs for $10. When can we do that? I didn't see the option when I was going through with my pledge.

    46. David Jarvis/Gun Metal Games 6-time creator on April 21, 2015

      Awesome! I'm so glad you like IZ. We put our heart and souls into it...wait..souls.. hmmm..

      BTW, I love the Interface Zero setting. I'm planning on using the system for a homebrewed Cyberpunk game sometime in the future.
