Yeah! My DS books now have PDF buddies!
I know I said it would likely be my only tattoo but I now have the urge to go all "Curse of the Azure Bonds" on it now and get some more down the arm.
And here it is: http://c1150.angrycarl.com/2013/02/et-viola.html I'm very pleased with how it looks. Congrats again Fred on the awesome number of backers!!
Yes! Yes I do!
@Fred, Still think I'm crazy? Yeah, probably: http://c1150.angrycarl.com/2013/02/whatever-could-be-under-bandage.html
2 Character sheets in PDF format and the Indesign Files (ZIPPED). Please let me know if you have any feedback :)
Justin has given us the download links; we're going to put them in the next backers-only update.
Anything updated about Dawning Star?
You're a madman. :)
The process has started: http://c1150.angrycarl.com/2013/02/about-to-get-bit-more-evil.html
I would have done it tonight, but my group is finally meeting again to play Dresden tomorrow and I didn't want to be itchy and distracted :)
Holy shit, dude. :)
I'll be visiting the tattoo artist Friday, to show the logo, get an idea of pricing and timing, availability for the work.
Someone needs to make a dubstep remix of the "OVER 9000!" soundclip.
The spreadsheet of Silliness has been updated: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc…
I'm including URLs to resources that have been posted, and resources-in-progress.
I'm keeping this updated for now, but expect me to drop down to updating it about once a week after the first couple of days. Good thing to bookmark, though.
Wow. Guess I'd better get to work. :)
It'll be a little while - I have to wait for FAE to come out after all - but when the setting writeups are ready I'll link to them in a comment here.
For reference, here's a list of the settings we've created thus far: http://wiki.crucibleofrealms.com/settings
Now I just have to decide which ones to write up... ;)
For those who have input on what *needs* to be on an 11"x17" tabletop Fate Core reference sheet (placed in the middle of the table for all to see), email me at otterpooka (@) Comcast [dot] net with suggestions. I plan on making a version that is two 8.5" x 11" sheets so anyone can print the and put them back to back.
Dawning Star? Oh. That Justin! Awesome. We landed at $433,365. Looking for the links. :)
Character Sheet generator updates:
1) I decided to go ahead and do this regardless of backing levels. Was gonna anyway. ;P
2) I've released the current version to the 4 testers who have emailed me directly. @James Orr, I can get you in the loop too.
3) I figure it will be somewhere between 4 and 14 days before I'm comfortable enough with the product to do a general release, but will continue to accept more beta testers if you want early access.
I'll work on the EIGHT MINUTE joke video tonight and will post the link here when complete :)
pledged of $3,000 goal
$433k. Awesome :-)
I think this has been the most satisfying KS I've been in.
Thank you to Evil Hat, and thank you to all of the other backers... as a fan, this has been a great ride :-)
You're wondering who I am
SECRET SECRET I'VE GOT A SECRET
(Um, for those not following all the way along, my comment just now was in reference to the PDF references I promised as a stretch goal at $425,000).
OK, I still hope to expand this a little bit with a couple of the items that I either can't find the file for, or was handwritten, but this is what I can get done by tonight.
I actually ended up meshing my original character sheets with some better ones that I made for a different Fate system, and converting them to Open Office in the process, so let me know if you find any problems. (parmeisan at gmail). Let me know if there are any other problems, too...
PS. The Accelerated cover ROCKS. (Although you may want to reconsider having "Only $5" there when in places other than the US, that number/currency will probably change....)
Awesome! We've just unlocked the following 3rd-party rewards at 10k backers:
* Haphazard Projects will release PDFs of Terminal Insanity
* John Donoghue will release 2-3 themed character sheets
* Carl McLaughlin will get an Evil Hat tattoo
* Nicholas Greder will run a 48 hour session of Fate Core once he receives the game. Highlights will be posted on youtube for all to see.
And the following at $430k:
* Ernie Sawyer will create a 11"x17" PDF play mat
Finally, due to both (well, either) goals:
* Yours Truly will write and release an open source dice-rolling web-app for use on a smartphone or tablet. Write to me at michael (at) fandomhome (dot) com for updates.
Domo arigato to Fredrik Lyngfalk, who gets to name another character in Sally Slick! Drop me a note at carrie (at) carrieharrisbooks (dot) com to make arrangements! Please! Thank you!
Yeah, that song will be stuck in my head forever now.
Bumped up ten more bucks.

Please! Thank you! Iiiii wanna thank you! Please! Thank you! (cue:) http://vine.co/v/bJU6iDq10rD
Do I hear the tenor tones of 70's/80's rock legend Styx?
Domo arigato, Fred. :-)
I'm not a KS veteran, and so didn't realize there's not a way for direct contact through here. So, for the folks who are interested in a beta of the generator, please email me at my gmail account. Account name is draxiusdotcom (all one word) - and I think you're all smart enough to figure out the (at) gmail (dot) com part. :)
Even a few people (I've noticed 2 in the threads below) would be helpful. Once I'm at a real computer and can make a few of the last changes, I'll respond where I can.
We may have doubled the prior record.
Fred, has Fate Core already achieved a record for 'most backers of an RPG kickstarter'?
This is so awesome! Thanks Fred and everyone that works for and with Evil Hat to bring us so much incredible gaming content! You guys set the standard that all companies should aspire to.
If the campaign gets to $430k OR 10k backers, I will write and release an open source Fudge/Fate dice rolling web app, suitable for use on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.
Don't worry, Michael, I was joking about 426k, hence the smiley! Out of curiosity, will you be using pseudorandom or true random numbers? I know at least two sites that spit out true random numbers for free, though I don't know what their use policies are.
Authors aren't finalized, I was sparing Clark Valentine from being the only name on the cover. ;) More may yet appear!
Nice cover! Only problem, if it is one: The three figures look like they're labelled with the three authors' names. :)
Really liking the cover to Fate Accelerated. Also thanks a bunch for the backer pledge spreadsheet. I pledged more than enough for what I'd like, but never hurts to be sure.
Garth, like I said, at least one open source app exists: https://github.com/tarmstrong/fudgeroller
And a minimal non-open-source web app: http://www.fudgery.net/omnium-gatherum/random_df_roller.html
I have in mind something slightly nicer, so I would rather make it a bit more of a stretch. Still leaning to $430k.
By my calculation, if we maintain today's pace to the end, we'll hit 428500 or so. 430k would require an extra push.

Quick question: how many Kickstarters have ever had *contributors* setting and filling stretch goals? This is amazing. Many thanks to all you folks throwing yet *more* valuable content into the basket. You rock.
