The Hardcover option for any tier is NOT a POD. Friesen's will be doing a print run. The plan is to run one hardcover print. We won’t be doing a hardcover POD option at DrivethruRPG afterwards or anywhere else. Any left-over hard copies will be sold at Themercilessmerchants.com until they are gone for good.
If the product becomes wildly successful and there is increased interest in a 2nd hardcover print run….we will say NO! Because we are merciless….Those who purchase the hardcover option in this Kickstarter will hold a rare tome!
The only way for a 2nd hardcover print run, is if we (greatly) expand Vermilion (a Part 2) and combine it with the original adventure, but it would receive different cover art, have more content, etc.
