With this Kickstarter drive, I'm hoping to launch not just one, but three new sci-fi RPG and miniatures game products simultaneously:
"Mass Transit IV" is a continuation of my most popular map series themed around the transportation of goods and passengers. This time my goal was to showcase a single specific AR-37 Transport Ship named "The Nova Eclipse", in an unprecedented level of detail. Both levels of this twin-deck starship, and its hull surface, are presented on this double-sided poster using a subtle 1-inch grid for gameplay with miniatures. If we can raise $3000 (to fund the print run, cover cards, packaging, shipping, and related expenses), Mass Transit IV will see print.
If we manage to double that amount, raising $6000 before the end of the funding period, I will also be printing the "Alien Starship Tiles". This set of twelve double-sided cards (along with two sheets of bonus terrain inside their front and back cover cards) can be used to construct all manner of living alien ships--a bio-engineered invasion fleet just waiting to be explored!
Finally, if we can actually raise $9000 before time runs out, I have one additional product ready to print and offer up as a reward for backers: A double-sided poster called "Deck Space." For years players have been asking me to produce a poster containing an empty field of deck plating as the basis for the creation of custom terrain maps. This is that product, and more: One side is a field of empty deck that perfectly matches my "Sci-Fi Cargo Tiles" product. With those tiles (or the sheet of 13 cargo items included on the back of this poster's cover card), you can set the stage for a different encounter location every time you use the map. The back side is similar, but matches the railway system running through my Mass Transit maps to form a larger, customizable battleground.
When you select a reward package that includes more than one map product, you may choose from the new products funded by this Kickstarter drive, and/or from my in-stock individual poster maps and terrain card sets listed in my map store at http://www.mapsofmastery.com/store.html
Shipping for these products is free. Even international orders will be shipped at no additional charge. That said, if backers from other countries would like to add $10 to their pledge as a courtesy to help offset the extra expense on my end, it would be appreciated.
Every backer will receive access to downloadable PDF copies of the maps that are printed through this funding drive. If we fund all three products, backers will get all three sets of PDF files!
Plus, I have other bonus rewards in the works if we pass certain benchmarks, like custom dice with the Nova Eclipse insignia on one face, or downloadable PDF versions of the maps with different features. If those additional rewards are unlocked (I'll post goals for them if and when we pass the main goal), all backers will have them automatically included with their map(s) at no extra charge!
Oh, and one more thing: the outstanding and enormously talented Star Wars artist Jeff Carlisle has offered to illustrate the Nova Eclipse for us! If his work is complete before the end of the funding period, his image will be included as part of the poster! How cool is that!?!
Please help me reach these goals by telling all of your friends about the project. Word-of-mouth is the best tool we have to make sure these products are printed
