    You get all of the rewards of Elite Class: Otaku.

    All shipping costs are waived.

    I, Devon Q. Oratz will personally AND IN PERSON run a game of Systems Malfunction for you and three friends if you can get yourselves to either Origins 2017 or GenCon 2017. After the game, all the drinks are on me.

    But most important of all, you get access to digital and *signed* physical copies of the ANCIENT TEXTS. You see, Systems Malfunction used to be a LARP and as it ran as a LARP from 2005 to 2012, no less than 160,000 words of succulent science fiction prose were written alongside the LARP by yours truly and friends, totalling to about six meaty novellas and two full-on-novels. These ancient texts are the science fiction equivalent of the Wu-Tang album Once Upon A Time in Shaolin. Only like six people have EVER seen them and looked on their glory. YOU could be the seventh through the tenth.
