We did it...or rather I should you, YOU did it! The Blight KS funded earlier today, and with 5 days to go. We are now official, I can now take the step of officially adding the previously unofficial stretch goal that gets us to the hardcover of the 5e version. It was unofficially official, but now it's officially official. The 5e stretch goal has been added. We've previously committed to 5e's availability in pdf form, but if we hit 100k we can afford to make a third print run to join the initial Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry versions that the book was originally written for (the book was actually written before 5e had even been released and was added in 5e to this KS due to overwhelming customer demand!)
But now it's time 5e fans! We didn't want to fund the initial print runs for other versions off of your pledges, but now that we've funded the initial goal you can change your $1 pledges or pdf-only pledges to print-version pledges and help us make the run to $100,000. It's within reach if the multitude of 5e fans who have shown interest in this book get on board now. Help us make it to the print version and make Frog God Games a 5e company. We've always wanted to know the 5e fans' interest in big 3PP campaign books like we make. Now is you chance to show us! Spread the word, make Facetweeks and Instasnaps or whatever you favorite form of social media may be. Help us, 5e-fan Kenobi, you're our only hope.
Okay, it kind of started falling apart at the end there...but you get the idea.
And while we're on the subject, we went ahead and posted a new stretch goal for the $86,000 mark. You may or may not have known, but Richard is not only a game designer but a novelist, with his first novel Crooked published in 2013. Set in the pseudo-Blight city of Brine, Crooked reveals Rich's mind in all its twisted glory. If we hit the 86k stretch goal, we include Richard's official Blight novella Scoured to the Bone as a free pdf to all backers of this KS. See the Blight not just as Richard wrote it as a game but as he envisions it as a living, breathing place. Help us get to the stretch goal and get Scoured to the Bone for free! (It actually sounds kind of painful when you say it like that.)
And while we're on the subject, don't forget to check out Richard Pett's novel Crooked here.
