Update #5

Full Bar unlocked!

2 comments

Wow. The full bar. You guys rock. And you know what you want.

Thank you so much for pledging and thank you so much for participating.

Frankly, while we were confident that we could reach the $30K full bar goal, we were far from certain and were definitely prepared to go either way. Don’t think for a moment we weren’t. Beer and wine would have been just fine. But you’ve come together as a community and made it very clear the direction that you would like to take this thing. And that was always the point. To get your input and move forward accordingly, together.

Which leaves us at a bit of an awkward point (but with an obvious solution). The full bar at $30K was, really, THE stretch goal we were working towards. What could top something so outrageous?? But you know what? One of our great secrets, and strengths, is that as a store we don’t do nearly as much thinking as we do listening. So we don’t have to think of some brilliant solution. Our project backers Liger and Russell already did it for us in the comments section this afternoon when they said, and I quote:

Russell “The full bar goal being reached reminds me, I'd like to put in a vote for a solid lineup of espresso drinks. A good latte goes a long way.”

Liger “Ooooh, I'm with Russell... Is there an overfunding goal for an amazing Espresso machine?”

Congratulations Russell and Liger, you’re now in charge. Next goal? Full espresso machine at $34K. We have three days left. Power to the people.

      Please make sure you spend some of that on proper training for your people! So many wonderful baristas around that could help. =)

    Ship one of our sweet, sweet limited edition kickass awesome (I'm running out of adjectives here) mugs to you, your family members friends and/or loved ones? We'd love to! And remember, each mug recipient gets their name on our Wall of Awesome (is that better than earlier Glory idea? Don't worry, we're totally going to nail this thing).

    Dining room table a little intimate? We understand completely. That's why we’ve created this new 2 Raygun Lounge Pint Glass pledge level, shippable to anywhere in the continental US, just for you. For a pledge of $50 you get two Raygun pint glasses, your name on our Wall of Awesome and, thanks to a recent push goal unlock, a custom t-shirt. You’ll also get the raygun D20 when it unlocks at $20K and the as-yet-to-be-announced secret $25K unlock when it becomes available (it’s sweet, you’ll be way into it). If you’re looking for the “most swag for your buck” option, this is definitely it.

    Interested in a “Private Encounter”? Our official Dungeons & Dragons Encounters program host, Andrew Asplund, will run your choice of either an official D&D Encounter or Lair Assault for you and up to 5 of your friends at our lounge or the location of your choosing (greater Seattle area only, thanks) at a time and date of your mutual convenience. This option includes your choice of mug or pint glass and your name on the wall and qualifies you for the custom t-shirt and D20 stretch goals that were recently unlocked.

    You'd like a mug, your name on the wall AND an invite to our private soft opening? Well then this is the option for you. Just remember that there are only 48 invites available to this thing so if you'd like your friends to come too you may want to text them - like right now - to ensure they make the list.

    The Raygun Lounge is going to be an amazing hub of community and to help us demonstrate that, some of our favorite game designers, including Sage La Tora will be running one offs of their games to help us raise funding and awareness. That's right, ladies and gentlemen, Sage La Tora will be in the house to run a custom adventure of his legendary Kickstarter favorite, Dungeon World, for you and up to 5 of your friends. And you know what? Mugs all around! That's a mug for you and you and you and.. you know what? We'll give Sage a mug too. Least we can do. The dude's solid.

    Have you heard the legends of what a spectacular DM, gamestore (and now lounge) owner Eric is? Possibly from Eric himself? Now you and up to 5 of your friends can find out. In person, at the time and date of your choosing (subject to Eric's fairly flexible availability). Eric will run a session of ANY RPG you choose. Yes, that's right, even RIFTS if you're a sadomasochist. But Eric warns you that if you do that, you and your friends will be playing RIFTS and, really, good friends don't let good friends play RIFTS.

    "Where everybody knows your name." Sure. You've got the mug. But wouldn't it be great if it had your name on it and hung over the bar so that when you came in, everyone was like "oh hey, 'your name here'," and pulled down your mug? Yeah. That'd be great. This option includes the mug with name over the bar, but not the party invite. If you'd like one of those as well, select both options and you'll get a take-home mug too.

    But Sage isn't the only indie RPG designer who loves us so much that he's willing to stop in and rock your world for the cause. Oh, no no no. Because we have legendary cartographer and Dungeon World contributor Tony Dowler in the house to run your choice of Dungeon World or the even more obscure World of Dungeons for you and up five of your friends (with mugs in all your hands and your name on the wall all big and badass).

    More of a beer type? We completely understand (we're the ones opening a lounge, afterall) which is why we've put together a complete set of 4 high-class Raygun Lounge pint glasses, either for pick up or delivered right to your door through the glory of UPS, plus your name on the Wall of Awesome (formerly known as the Wall of Glory), not to be confused with the wall of coffee mugs hanging in the bar. That's a separate pledge level altogether. Because, seriously now, how would you hang a pint glass on a wall?

    But wait! Just when you thought we'd blown the roof off (roof? who needs a roof? we're doing this place colloseum style- someone get me my net and trident), we've got John Harper. That's right, John "I'm mutha-effin John Harper, mutha-effers" Harper will be in the house to run you and 4 of your greatest friends EVAR through an evening of any one of his games that you would like. I have to say it like that because, and let's be real here, John has either written or contributed to EVERY SINGLE INDIE RPG EVER MADE (I can't back that up with facts). Bam. Gaming with John Harper, name on wall, mugs for everybody. $100.

    How about a private booster draft for you and 7 of your friends any time that you want during the next year? You’ll get reserved table space, all of the supplies you'll need to play – even prize support – AND a dedicated organizer to run the whole thing so you don't have to, including providing sanctioned rulings and bracket organization. Plus, we'll put your name on our Wall of Awesome, nice and big, to boot. An amazing event value all around. And yes, multiple drafts could be combined to create one massive MEGADRAFT! Just pledge the appropriate amount and send us a message letting us know. Oh, and agree to never let it roam the streets. Who knows what sort of damage that thing could do if it escaped into our unsuspecting city?

Jake is a most excellent game coach and he'll happily add any game you request to the mix of the night. Also in the stack he'll have your choice of mug or pint glass, a t-shirt, some underwear and a custom D20. Oh, and we’ll add your name to the wall of awesome to boot.

    “But wait!” you cry, which frankly, is a little awkward for both of us, “what if I want my mug on the wall, an invite to the party AND free coffee?” Free coffee, eh? For how long… a year? Your name on the recently renamed Wall of Awesome, your cup on the Wall of Muggage and free coffee for a year? Ooh… that’s a tough sell…but you know what? We can do that! Coffee! In your face! Any time that you want it. As much as you can jam in there (if you freakout, pull your shirt over your head and start calling yourself Cornholio, we’re totally cutting you off). For 365 days. Starting on the day of our preparty and going from there.

    Name on a chair not good enough for you? No? You need your name (or company logo, we're getting big enough now, I say, why not?) permanently etched into one of our benches? Go for it. Get your (or your company's) name etched on a bench and on the wall. Say. Did I mention higher pledgers get their names higher and bigger on the wall? Well they do. Your name will be frickin' huge up there. You can look at it while you drink out of your awesome mug.

    If one night of roleplaying with gaming legend Eric Logan is good, imagine an entire campaign. That's right, noted DM, entreprenuer and lunatic Eric* will run an entire six-adventure campaign for you and up to four, maybe five, of your closest personal friends in the system of your choosing (except for RIFTS, one night's a laugh, one season's a torture). Eric personally guarantees that it will be "hella epic." *see 2012 Free RPG Day D&D Adventure 'Dead in the Eye' p. 4 by Jobe Bittman for a more detailed description.

    So, you think you're a drafter. Well how about a one year pass good for one draft per week all year long then? Could you loan it to a friend? Yes you could. Is this crazy? All the way around. Does this include your name on the wall, big and near the top, a free mug and invite for 2 to the preparty? Hell yeah it does. We'll see you there.
