    Disciple

    My working notebooks in digital form. What this means is a melange of Google Spreadsheets, mad scraps of text files, reference images, project schedules, concept art - basically I'll sweep my virtual desk free of virtual contents, pick out anything that looks interesting, squeeze it into a *small but stylishly enigmatic physical package*, and send it to you.

    And Perpetual Edition, natch.

    Stolen Name

    Your name, or a pseudonym, goes in the game, as an author of forbidden works / damned soul / grasping tide spirit / oracular bottled ape foetus etc.

    I reserve the right to veto unsuitable names, because I still remember that time a backer tried to get a landmark called Dankmeme Swamp in Sunless Sea. But I'll find something that works for us both, or give your money back.

    If I get a lot of backers, I am really going to regret making this a seventy quid tier, but I'll put an whole extra library of Scarlet Monks in or something.

    • Your name in the game
    • Perpetual Edition copy of Cultist Simulator (Windows/Mac/Linux)

    God-who-was-blood

    Choose any piece of game art to be tattooed on my actual skin.

    Seriously. You might remember I got inked with Sunless Sea art as a stretch goal.

    Conditions: it has to be Cultist Simulator art (or a quote); my girlfriend gets to veto anything too alarming. If we can't agree, I'll refund.

    And everything above!
