We're Half-Way There; A Related KickStarter Project
I have two bits of news today...
First, we hit the halfway point! I'll be continuing to post updates just about every other day. But we only have 2.5 weeks to go, so hopefully we'll have more good days of pledging. It is still definitely very possible.
The second piece of news is that I've just launched a complimentary project: Monster Stock Art.
I've been trying to put together a collection of art for several projects (Monster Stand-Ins being the first) because I know there are several things I'd like to do which need monster art.
However as I've mulled the project over I realized that many other small publishers, bloggers who write about fantasy games or fiction, electronic game creators, etc., are likely in a similar situation. So I thought a project that pooled a slice of our art budgets might be very helpful. And of course many of the folks in these situations may be doing their own KickStarter projects, so they know what it is all about.
The new project won't take significantly more time than Monster Stand-Ins. And the major benefit is that if the new project looks like it will succeed early, I can sweeten this project a bit more (more minis in the base set) because the art cost is spread out. We'll see how that looks over the next two and a half weeks.
