    Help out a bit

    Bill will say thanks to everyone who's bought any reward, in a short video we'll release to my blog where backers will be listed in person.

    Using a random number generator from the order in which backers get listed, we'll pick a random backer to receive a softback book, signed by the IC author. That'll be delivered to an Empire event in 2020.

    Your character appears in writing!

    This pledge gets you a character appearance in a paragraph of the book, written for you by Andy Raff on the basis of the character's nation, lineage, and virtue (if they have any). If send us 25 words of your own and/or a picture by the end of March 2020, he will use that to give him additional context as to what the character might be doing at Anvil.

    And you get a paperback book. We can't imagine you not wanting a book if your character is mentioned in it.

    (If you have ever been a member of staff at the Academy, let us know. You get an appearance for free.)
