Dear cultists,

Today, we conducted a poll to see if we should reveal our hidden Stretch Goals. And, you all voted an overwhelming YES!

So, here we go...

 $47K STRETCH GOAL - PURITY SEALS FOR CONDITIONS

Players! Are you running grim & perilous adventures, but tired of erasing your conditions over and over on your Character Folio for ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG? Then prepare yourself with our color blind-friendly Purity Seals for Conditions!

Every Purity Seal is marked with one of 11 Conditions Characters will face. This set includes 2 pages, with 22 Purity Seals for you to cut out and apply to your Character Folio. Printed on high quality stock (same stock and gloss as the GM Screen and GM Playmat), you're guaranteed to get the best quality for your dollar.

You need only add +$2 to your pledge level to pick up the physical+pdf edition.

$56K STRETCH GOAL - DEJAN MANDIC KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE COVER

 We previously had Dejan do a MAIN GAUCHE alternative cover for Kickstarter that was solely exclusive, never to be printed again. And now, it's back!

Once this goal unlocks, you will be able to add Dejan's Kickstarter-exclusive MAIN GAUCHE offset print edition to your pledge. This warp-around cover will be inspired by the original chaos cover by Les Edwards. Read more here about the artwork.

You need only choose either the original Ken Duquet cover, or the Kickstarter exclusive cover by Dejan Mandic, at the time that MAIN GAUCHE surveys are sent out. Please note that there will never be another print run of this exclusive cover, nor will it be made available as POD on DriveThruRPG.

You need only add +$65 to your pledge level to pick up the physical+pdf edition.

$63K STRETCH GOAL - MAIN GAUCHE SRD

We will contract our developer to rework the entire book into searchable SRD format! The above version is our ZWEIHÄNDER Systems Resource Document, which is being prepared for release by mid-September.

The MAIN GAUCHE SRD will be ready by January 2019, and will be released entirely for free.

$75K STRETCH GOAL - MAIN GAUCHE & ZWEIHÄNDER SPECIAL EDITIONS

Our final Stretch Goal is for a special edition version of MAIN GAUCHE and ZWEIHÄNDER!

These special edition books will be printed in limited quantities. We are working with our printer to sort out the precise number, however we feel confident we can get at least 500 copies of each printed. This will be encyclopedia quality with foil pages and an inlay of the original covers by Jussi Alarauhio for ZWEIHÄNDER and Ken Duquet for MAIN GAUCHE.

We will provide further details as we move forward with our printer. However, we anticipate that these will be in extremely limited quantities:

ZWEIHANDER exclusive edition book (add +$200 to your pledge, MSRP $350)

  • 688 pages 8.5x11 size (black & white interior)
  • Red lexitone cover, 5.5x7 color inlay of original cover by Jussi Alarauhio
  • Smythe sewn case bound, head and foot bands
  • Silver foil front and spine
  • Interior black ribbon Black end sheets

MAIN GAUCHE exclusive edition book (add +$200 to your pledge, MSRP $350)

  • Approximately 300-400 pages
  • 8.5x11 size (black & white interior/color exterior)
  • Black lexitone cover, 5.5x7 color inlay of original cover by Ken Duquet
  • Smythe sewn case bound, head and foot bands
  • Gold foil front and spine
  • Interior red ribbon Red end sheets 

YOU CAN ALSO PURCHASE BOTH BOOKS AS A COMBO ADD-ON FOR +$375.

Praise the Purple Prince,

      Argh I the direct link to the image didn't work. Ah well, it's a great blog post anyway :)

      This is amazing. That cover is so iconic. Can't wait to see what Dejan comes up with. Zweihander is a hell of a nostalgic trip for me. I still remember flipping through that book when I was a kid... those hauntingly detailed images. Especially Adrian Smith's. This one, in particular, I took a magnifying glass to read the sordid tales carved upon the monoliths: http://nico-realmsofchaos.blogspot.com/2017/07/adrian-smith-chronicles-of-hate.html

      The Dejan Mandic cover is exclusive for MAIN GAUCHE. The Dejan Mandic cover for ZWEIHÄNDER will never be printed again.

      I think that's a typo. During the original Zweihänder KS, the alternative cover version was offered for the same price. I believe it's the same this time around as well.

      Is that 65 dollars in addition to the price of the base pledge for the book? 110+ dollars? For the alternative art cover when we reach the stretch goal?
