(If you're asking about the Robo open content, it's not instantly anywhere. Hitting the stretch means we start that effort, not that we have it immediately available.)
Everywhere. fate-srd.com is entirely based on all of the open content currently available from faterpg.com/licensing
Where on fate-srd.com if the current open content?
And the first of the extras now enjoys it's freedom.
Good to hear, Mike. Thanks for chiming in, sir.
Just seeing all these comments now, but yes, I'd absolutely want to include mission briefings and requisitions in the open-content bucket. It's really great to see people eager to make use of them and other subsystems from ARRPG, so if people want 'em, I definitely want to make sure they have 'em. The Fate community's always been about sharing our toys.
That. Is. AWESOME! With all the fun of M12 and the base of ARRPG, I think I have enough to do some Stargate!
If funded, I'll consult with Mike and we'll figure out what the right thing to do there is, but: probably.
For the $45k stretch goal, does that include the M12 stuff? Specifically mission briefings and requisitions.
I hear you. To be frank, tho, the epub market for RPGs is pretty damned small, based on what I've seen over the past couple years. It's usually a real challenge to get enough sales-interest to justify even the meager cost of conversion. Which is why I try to tuck conversions as ride-alongs in other stretch goals. :)
All I can say is that an ePub would be great because trying to read the PDF on the Kindle is a disaster precisely because of heavy graphical element. :)
(Also because I'm not sure how much stuff in it is something that would need to go into open content, and I was trying to get two-fers in general; epub's html-esque source makes for a good basis for SRDs.)
I might consider folding that into the 55k or 60k target, David. I think I skipped it initially because I wasn't sure how challenging it would be to fold Daniel's visually lush layout into an acceptable epub. :)
I noticed that Temple of Do is missing from the ePub extras. Any reason for that? I'd love to have ePub versions of that!
OK reread the descriptions and it is there. I don't know how I missed that.
I did not make the assumption that the digital rewards package was part of this physical tiers too but I am one of those people who questions the obvious.
I know now
Folks reading the post are totally clear that the $10 digital rewards package is something that every single one of the physical-shipping tiers gets too, right? I neglected to re-mention that on the supposition that it was already obvious, but a couple questions have me concerned. :)
These look like good additions to the stretch goal ladder to me. :) Granted, I tend to prefer physical books over PDFs, especially when it comes to RPGs; if I have to cross-reference between pages, it's a lot easier to flip between pages in a real book than to scroll back and forth in an electronic document.
PDFs do have their benefits, though. Like not waiting for shipping, not having to lug a couple of pounds of book around in addition to other stuff, etc.
Open-license Weight is exactly what I was waiting for!
Now to brave the double horror that is a strengthening US dollar (or a weakening my dollar) and international shipping price increases...
International shipping is sort of my problem too, yet I'm backing it at the highest tier, and adding some more books. Yes, it adds up, but it's only 15 + 10 for extra books after that, that's cheap by today's standards.
All the physical-shipping rewards specify (by way of the $20 tier) that they include the digital rewards package. So it looks to me like everyone who's getting a physical book is already getting the digital stuff, Patrick? :)
I think the 1/6th of our revenue is a more truer measure than 50% (I am a digital backer so I am not throwing stones at anyone), So a shout out to the minority that is funding the 5/6th of the project.
Again I know international shipping is my problem as well (and I live 1 hour drive from the border)
Anyway I can get digital book and physical book or would you suggest I make pledges from multiple accounts if I wanted to do that ?
P.S. I may be buy some of your books that are already in print instead. Not that it helps the Kickstarter
Nice! I honestly think Mike's come up with the best implementation of Fate yet with Atomic Robo. . . .
OPEN CONTENT WOOHOO! I can't wait to add these to the Fate SRD!
All the same, I hope a few folks upgrade to the higher-value tiers. Our digital backers may be over 50% of our backers but they're only providing under 1/6th of the revenue that helps us hit these goals. :)
This is great! I'm one of the digital only backers and for me that's because I don't live in the US so shipping is way too expensive to make any of the physical rewards tempting. If it was a flat rate for international shipping I'd be tempted to buy a bunch of them but as it is I'm probably going to be able to get them a lot cheaper by waiting for them to turn up in my FLGS. In the meantime, bring on the PDFs and ebooks!
Modes as presented in the Toolkit are a bit stripped-down. The method detailed in Atomic Robo has more to it.
First off, I love what you're doing. This is simply great! Not does it only help get past the mid-KS blues, it does it in a way that helps open up these awesome products to new customers and allows fans of the engine to play around with solid mechanic from awesome Fate titles.
Secondly, isn't mode construction already open content? It was in the System Toolkit. Not that it matters, I'm just curious.
This is exactly what I wanted. I'll happily pay you more money now :)
That is super cool! All this open content for the extra system is an amazing add to FATE and totally in the spirit of what you guys were doing with creating these world agnostic system,
More open content, you say? Well, if you insist... This is awesome guys, thanks!
We figure this should boost the fun AND serve the community well — the best kind of goals for a KS campaign. Thanks folks!
I can't thank you enough for this. It's great to have the brainstorming rules available as open content. Mode was already sort of there in the toolkits, but MegaStunts is amazing. I also appreciate the MOBI or EPUB versions, as I'm an avid kindle user. Still, I'll remain in the all print, because this content deserves it.
Glad you think so, Mike, as the $45k one may involve a little work for you ;)
This is pretty cool.
I would love to see the minis mods.
Man, open/generic Brainstorming rules would be fantastic!
As someone who would love to use the Brainstorm rules from Atomic Robo this makes me quite happy.
To $90K and beyond!
Epub/mobi editions and open content? I genuinely couldn't ask for better things, for the way I game. Thank you!
