If you aren't familiar with Sorcerer, the following video is for you.
The new Sorcerer is offered in the form of two PDFs and corresponding books.
Book #1. The anniversary update for the Sorcerer core book, double the original word count and laid out as annotations, like so (core book, first chapter):
Book #2. All three supplements, bundled together: Sorcerer & Sword, The Sorcerer's Soul, and Sex & Sorcery. These needed no annotations.
At the first goal, at $5,000, we funded the amazing cover art by Thomas Denmark. Which is totally cool!
By passing the $10,000 stretch goal, we made it possible for me to send every pledger both the PDFs and the two books, except those choosing the pledge specifying otherwise. You can add funds for more books if you want; see the FAQ below.
Everything else comes in the form of the pledge rewards. Please notice that all but one of the $50 rewards "stack," which is to say, add $10 for each one you want beyond the first! (You can tell me which ones later.) One of these features art by Trollbabe veteran Ed Heil! Check out Heillustrations, which is mostly sketches, but you can see how fun they are and also in a few cases what a knockout a full-rendered Heil piece is.
The higher rewards include artwork by Thomas and dedicated game-design work by me.
Here's the preliminary footage for a couple of videos about the system. I will chop it apart and add some dice footage throughout the Kickstart period.
The goals are accomplished, but come by and visit every so often, to see new stackable pledge rewards, modifications to the videos, and more.
Risks and challenges
Hey, if it's about producing RPG books, and if it's about things going wrong, you can be sure I have suffered in its clutches. But seriously folks ...
The layout's done, so that's not a risk. As for the art, Thomas is one of the most reliable and remarkable gaming/RPG illustrators in the business, so any risk on that end is strictly theoretical. (He says this has been a dream project for him for almost a decade, so I'll call that a win.) If something bad were to happen, making the work impossible, I have backup lined up too.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
