    It doesn’t have to get physical.

    At this level, we’ll give you the pre-release draft of the game, and the gorgeously illustrated final digital version when it’s ready. You'll need to find your own tower, and do a little arts & crafts to make your character sheets and scene cards.

    We will also give credit for your generous support in the book.

    PATRON OF LETTERS

    In addition to everything in the Beloved Edition, at this level you will have the opportunity to commission one piece of short fiction from blush-inducing fic author Alex Roberts. Submit your Star Crossed pairing, from your own imagination or from a fandom you love, and Alex will weave a tale of forbidden, and possibly doomed, attraction. Like the game itself, you don't know quite how it will end.
    When you choose this reward, we will contact you as soon as the campaign ends asking for your pairing suggestion. Once we have your contribution, we’ll deliver a PDF with a story of approximately 500 words by June 30th. (Alex reserves the right to decline a pairing if it squicks her out.)

    Includes:
    • Pre-release Playtest Draft
    • Final Digital Edition
    • Complete Boxed Edition
    • 500-word custom fan fiction story (PDF)
    • Credit for your support in the book

They're all lovely.)

Rachel will hand paint your tower of tumbling blocks with a unique and heartbreakingly star crossed scene of beauty and longing. Rachel is amazing, and she will make something amazing just for you.
