Hello!  If I haven't already introduced myself, my name is David Caldwell.  I am the designer of Neon Dawn and plan to self-publish (with your help!).  Neon Dawn is 95% complete.  It already looks amazing, and delivers fun, game after game.  However, it can still be better.  I invite all of you to join in for the last 5%.

I know that Neon Dawn will be better for every backer, every set of eyes on the rules, every Tabletopia game (Mobile too!) and Tabletop Simulator game played.  Every Tweet, retweet, Facebook and Reddit post will help push Neon Dawn towards that driving goal of 100%.

Perfect is certainly a lofty goal, but I won't be disappointed if we can only reach 99% -- as long as it's the very best we can do!  I have put thousands of hours into Neon Dawn this far, and I intend to see it through the rest of the way.  I'm up for the task, and I would love to have you along!

I have added two backer tiers without any sort of physical reward.  The first, "Don't Be A Stranger" is a $1+ tier to allow people to participate in the discussion and follow the campaign.  The second, "I Would Like To Help!" is a $20+ tier with access to the discussion and updates, as well as my gratitude.  I appreciate any help that you are willing to give!

To each of you that decides to back Neon Dawn, thank you!  Each pledge is a vote of confidence in our ability to see this through, and create something amazing.  I know that you will have countless hours of fun with Neon Dawn!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I fully understand that this is not the traditional Kickstarter campaign you are used to.  I can't say I've really fit nicely into any category throughout my life.  I will continue to work towards bringing you an amazing, fun board game.

I am asking you to trust that I will work ceaselessly to make this happen.  I can tell you that I will do whatever work is necessary to bring Neon Dawn to you.  It is different than anything out there.  The components are expensive, the book is expensive to produce, there is a lot of artwork, and care put into every design detail.

If you do not trust that I can bring you Neon Dawn, it is your call to make.  No hard feelings!  I have backed many Kickstarter campaigns and I do understand your perspective.  I would certainly have liked to have more ready for you right now.  I over estimated my ability, and while I can certainly do better if I were to launch again, I sincerely believe that we can do this.

That said, if you choose to place your trust in me.  I will create something different and something that remains fun game after game.  I will create something special, an experience that pushes day to day thoughts from your mind and immerses you an in a post-apocalyptic wasteland adventure.

This will be a true Kickstarter campaign rather than a preorder that has become more prevalent.  It will be fun, I will share progress updates with you, we will watch the entire process unfold together.  I will ask you for thoughts and opinions.  When I say that I invite you to join in for the last 5%, that's really what I mean! :)

Risks and challenges

The largest challenge is that this is my first time through board game publishing. I will make mistakes as I learn to navigate the landscape of the industry simply due to lack of experience. That's the brutal honest truth, isn't it?

However, I will learn from any mistakes made, and I will employ critical thinking and logic to minimize the potential exposure due to the inevitable. When I decide to do something, I believe it is worth my full effort. I have decided to do this.

Manufacturing and shipping costs have all been mathed out (you DO use it after high school!), taking into consideration the various less transparent costs of production and transportation as well. Neon Dawn will be printed with Panda GM due to their track record for outstanding quality in components and overall production.

I believe I have mitigated any risk to you, the backer. When this campaign funds, Neon Dawn will be published. So, you can feel comfortable in supporting Neon Dawn (and please do)! If your pledge is collected, you WILL get the reward listed at your backer level.
