    Design a class of Low Fovos

    Everything previous (except design a character and character sketch), 4 extra copies of Thistledown, + Design your own class of Low Fovos. The Low Fovos are the moderately magical creatures in the world of Thistledown. They come in all shapes and sizes, from small flying reptiles to massive, sleepy creatures who resemble grassy hills. With this level, you design a brand new class of Low Fovos, and they'll not only become part of the Thistledown Canon, but we'll incorporate them into the game itself.

    IMPORTANT: We'll work with you to make a creature that fits in the world of Thistledown, which means no references to real people, and nothing too anachronistic (I.E. a living, flying cheeseburger).

    Includes:

    EVERYTHING previous, including:

    Extra stuff!
    10 copies of the game, 5 copies of the sticker packs, 5 copies of the jewel case soundtrack, extra postcards and manuals, and fun Thistledown surprises from us!

    Every design level
    This means that you'll be working closely with us, designing:

    * A custom character (and you'll receive a drawing of the character when they're done)
    * A new class of Low Fovos

    +++ Also, we'll fill you in on the connection between ██████ and the world of Thistledown, and you'll decide the fates of ██████ and change the course of ██████ irrevocably. And we'll secretly base the name of the giant █████████ in the ███ ███ that controls ██████ after your name.
    You'll significantly affect this and any other game based in the world of Thistledown.

    P.S. These rewards are in no way worth $5000. But if you believe in Thistledown and wish to contribute at a big level, we want to thank in every way we can.

We'll officially enter your race into Thistledown canon. It will also show up in a special area within Thistledown.
