Update #7

A Shadow Falls!

Folks, it's time to reveal our next stretch goal, and it's a big one.

The Story of Shadow of the Century

The year is 1984. Doctor Methuselah has died in a mine explosion that also took the life of Centurion Mack Silver. But the doctor's son lives on, publicly living the clean and teflon-coated life of a career politician -- and now he's running for President, on a pro-technology ticket that promises to change America, and the world, forever. Already, startling advances have been made thanks to his political and social initiatives, and we stand poised at the edge of a new golden age...

But all, of course, is not as it seems. The Century Club, home to the heroes of old, has long been officially disbanded, denounced as a dangerous communist organization during the 1950s. The Centurions that survive remain on the run, doing what they can to help people day to day, and to show them the truth -- that the guiding hand behind this new age of technology could mean the end for us.

Someone has been playing with the time-stream, looping back and over the current century again and again until it degrades like a VCR tape that's had one too many shows recorded on it, leaving gaps and static at every turn. Through those gaps come the leaks -- refugees and monsters from timelines that no longer exist... and the more that come, the more it all threatens to come apart at the seams.

The Centurions can't stop it alone. They'll have to gather together the rag-tag, plucky heroes of the decade, those living outside the law and on the run. The ones they've been mentoring. The backroads trucker and his effusive ape sidekick. The teenybopper covert-operations troubleshooter team. The crack commando unit fleeing an unjust court martial. The ex-cop with the talking motorcycle. Not to mention the free spirit who ran into all that ruckus in Little China some months back...

This is Shadow of the Century.

The Plan for Shadow of the Century

We want to produce Shadow of the Century as a "fat" (high word count, high production value) setting book featuring an updated, new-wave 1980's pulp action-adventure build for Fate Core, perfect for running anything from games inspired by Big Trouble in Little China, to Charlie's Angels, to Die Hard -- or some great big nutty blend of all of that stuff. The system build for Shadow will support this kind of crazy action front and center, with larger than life characters walking the walk with a retro swagger.

If we reach the stretch goal target for this, we'll have our starting development budget for the project, covering things like the writing and editing, plus a full-color sized budget for the art. Work would begin in 2013, and might not conclude until 2014, so there would be a wait for this, but it's one we think you'll agree is worth it.

That does mean that we can't know for sure what our page count, price point, and all the rest of all that stuff will be. So while we won't be able to offer this book to be bought through upgrades on your pledges, if y'all fund our development budget, we will be giving every backer who has pledged at least $10 a copy of the final PDF of Shadow of the Century. It'll be our biggest, boldest expansion offering yet -- and it'll be yours (along with all those other smaller expansions you've already unlocked) for an incredibly low digital price.

In Shadow of the Century, the Centurions are on the ropes, and may be going down for the count -- but with your support, they'll be ready to rise to that challenge. Ready? Set? Go!

      This is amazing news - frankly, I had given up hope that this was ever going to see the light of day. Thanks so much for proving me wrong!

      In related news, I think I've found the perfect test for the character creation section of the rules . . .

      Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on December 11, 2012

      At this point I think we're at least slightly into the black, if not substantially. VERY ROUGHLY estimating, given $130,000, I'd guess:

      $13k goes to payment processing and kickstarter combined
      $25-40k goes to shipping (this is a big guess, hence the wide range)
      $25k or more goes to printing, depending on ultimate formats, and including the printing of surplus product beyond what will be shipped to backers
      $10+k probably goes to art in one form or another
      $20k, maybe more, goes to writing and editing
      $5-10k goes into layout depending on scenarios

      That puts us somewhere in the very low $100k range, give or take, which would still leave us $20-30k in the black. Some of that stuff scales, some of it doesn't. A lot of that "in the black" right now would go into funding other projects beyond the Kickstarter -- as intended, that's why we're doing stretch goals now that are more about "we promise to make Thing X, and you'll at least get the digital", where the physical thing that ultimately results will get sold separately from the kickstarter. Helps build up the black, fund those things, and leave a little profit for growth. You know: business!

      At any rate, we got this. I appreciate the good-intentioned concern. :)

      Yeah. You guys aren't gonna go broke or anything from this, right? I mean, if enough of that cash up there is devoted to printed books, I could see that potentially running into cost overruns.

      You're all good, right?

      Creator Joe on December 11, 2012

      Man -- after this, I'm *never* going to feel like I'm getting my money's worth in a Kickstarter again. Are you keeping a running pagecount of this project? Standardizing on the 6" x 9" format, if you printed everything, it's gotta be nearing (or over) 1000 pages by this point.

      Wade: Evil Hat is unstintingly generous when it comes to bits and bytes. Take a look at the KS for Dinocalypse Trilogy... that was SEVEN full length novels in ebook format, for ten bucks, on top of things like wallpapers and the like.

      Mind you, this has gone WAAAAY beyond that already. But Fred is a man of his word, and "all expansions" means ALL, including this.

      Dear Fred: Please move Shadow to the TOP of your queue. I want this by summer!

      Can't argue with the reaction. It's gonna be awesome.

      I was a Feng Shui playtester. Spent many an hour playing Shadowfist and hoped someone would revitalize the game. Now here it comes, Fate-ified. ;-) I'm already backing at a high level, so, can't wait.

    10. Fred%20headshot-250x250.small

      Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on December 11, 2012

      You've got it right, Wade. $10 gets you a TON of PDFs, including Shadow if funded, and probably represents at least a 75% discount on what they'd all be to buy individually after the KSer (tho we'll probably have a bundle to make getting all of the settings for cheaper, but not THAT cheaper).

    11. Wade_hone_(1_of_1).small

      Creator Wade Hone on December 11, 2012

      I see some comments regarding upping a pledge, I guess I just wanted to clarify... as long as you have pledged $10, then your elligible for this upgrade of Shadow of the century PDF. right?

      Which means that I'll be pushing to expose more people to this one to get them to pledge, but wouldn't necessarily need to 'up grade' my pledge beyond the $10 level. (correct me if I am wrong.)

      that said, this kickstarter has SO MUCH FREAKING VALUE in it for a mere 10$, I feel almost morally obligated to kick in more cash heh. Thanks for showing the world how a Kickstarter upgrade program should be run! Thanks!

      My goodness, I've been excited for hours remembering those weird old TV series I used to watch when I was a kid, like Manimal or Misfits of Science and I'm quite looking forward to bring those memories to play.
      Besides, to echo what's been already said below, being new to Evil Hat (at the exception of 'Do') and Fate, I too wouldn't mind seeing/purchasing an updated version of Spirit of the Century if you ever considered publishing one.

Hell, I picked up SotC so I can I could play New Wave Pulp 80's rpg, but I don't have the talent, creativity or writing skills to write my own... If I had time I was going to attempt to write the setting myself, and call it just that: New Wave: 80's Pulp Adventure. Now I don't have to! You guys are awesome!

      I want to use this supplement to play Heat Vision and Jack, Goonies, Flight of the Navigator, American Ninja and They Live. This is maybe the awesomest. "Radical", if you will.
