VOTING RESULTS for your 24th Trading Card AND Your 25th Trading Card is now UNLOCKED!

Posted by Alex Woolfson (Creator)

Howdy everyone!

Big morning so far! I surface from unconsciousness and not only did we get in all your votes for your 24th Trading Card, but I see another stretch goal has been unlocked! Woo hoo!

But first, let me get you those voting results!

Your 24th Trading Card

Voting results for your 24th Trading Card are in! And with 1006 ballots cast, you chose to get the FLUKE ORIGIN CARD with 364 votes!

Your choice means that in addition to a physical book and beautiful POWERS trading cards for ALL 9 character choices, ROMANCE trading cards for ALL 9 character choices as well as ORIGIN cards for The Annihilator, Kyle, Spooky Jones, Flyboy and Commander, those of you who are pledging at the FULL CITIZEN level or above will now also receive a nice, glossy 2.5" x 3.5" trading card with a powerful image of one of the first uses of Fluke's powers as well as a fascinating narration about how he became a superhero!

You're going to be getting twenty-four bonus cards with your books now! In addition to that, all backers will get access to a digital version of this card! YAY!


Voting continues for the Open Call Safe-for-Work Romance print! So far, 821 of you have cast your ballots, but if you haven't had a chance yet, please go click the voting link and let me know which two The Young Protectors characters you'd like to see cuddling and stuff in an 11" x 14" Print option! (Which all backers will of course be able to enjoy as a digital wallpaper!)

What are you getting right now?

A couple backers have pointed out to me that so many stretch goals have been unlocked, they aren't entirely clear what pledge levels are getting what! Well, there's a page that I've been updating every day that tells you just that:

See a list of what all the pledge levels are getting and everything that's been unlocked right here!

And, of course, if you decide you want to bump up your pledge level to get even more goodies, you can do that at any time on our Kickstarter's home page.

What's Next?

Well, we're now at $92,986 and the next stretch goal gets unlocked at $95,000 and this one is very special! It's another physical goody that, if unlocked, will be sent to every backer getting a physical book! AND it's a KICKSTARTER-EXCLUSIVE so this is the only time anyone is going to be able to get one of these!

What is it? A very cool, full-color Young Protectors bookmark which will feature the character you vote for!

The bookmarks I made for Artifice were very popular and these will be even more special because they will be just for you, my awesome Kickstarter backers!

And what's next next?

  • at $97,500, the FIRST-TIME TRADING CARDS become available for characters who already have an ORIGIN card! These cards would reveal intimate details about a character's romantic experience, namely their first-time experiences with romance and sex (first kiss, first time in love, first...). The card art would also feature a sweet, beautiful image of that character's very first kiss.
  • if we hit $100,000, all backers at the YOUNG HERO pledge level and above will be sent an authentic, embroidered SPOOKY CAP!
  • and then at $105,000, THE ANNIHILATOR WHAT-IF ROMANCE PRINT with NSFW OPTION gets unlocked! For this print you'll get to decide which The Young Protectors character you'd want our favorite supervillain to be with if Kyle were not an option! Curious to see The Annihilator and Tsunami kissing and maybe a whole lot more? If this stretch goal gets unlocked, you might just get your chance!

Will we hit any of those stretch goals? Fingers crossed! But for now it's time for me to send you your next BACKERS ONLY voting link!

Thank You!

Thank you so much for your amazing backing and support. All morning I've been seeing backers increase their pledge levels in support of this project and that makes me feel so good to see that. There's a lot of hard work that goes into a Kickstarter project and that just makes me feel like I'm doing something right here. So thank you so much for that! :)

Thank you also for doing such a great job getting the word out! Please keep that up! Let your friends know about how fun this is! (Very politely) tweet and reach out on Facebook to your favorite celebrities asking if they might be willing to give us a kind mention. Let folks know there's only a few days left to back. That Spooky Cap is feeling more and more realistic by the hour!

We're in the home stretch! Last five days! And you are all SUPERHEROES! :D

More soon!
