New Backer Levels!

Hey supporters!

I added four new Backer Levels to the Numenera Kickstarter. Remember how, with the $100,000 stretch goal I promised to donate 300 copies of the corebook to libraries and educators? Now you can be an ALTRUISTIC COLLECTOR and get your name in one of the books that gets donated, showing that it was your help that made it possible. (Because it was!) 

Or you can be a UNIQUE CHARACTER and have me create a Numenera character for you with one-of-a-kind abilities or equipment. 

But there's more! If someone has never really liked my work, has a beef with me or just wants revenge because their favorite character died in a module I wrote, they can be an ORC AND PIE and hit me in the face with a pie. No, seriously. Right there at GenCon. In front of all the other gamers. I deserve it.

Lastly, fans of my book, Ptolus, might be interested in the level I call PTOLUS FAN. This single backer gets one of the last remaining copies of Ptolus and a bunch of other Ptolus goodies hand delivered by me to their home, where I will run a game of either Numenera or Ptolus (backer's choice).

Check them out!

More surprises are coming soon when we reach the newly added $190,000 stretch goal too. I can't tell you what it is now, though. It's a surprise!

      @Craig : furthermore, you were already short of $25, covering the shipping costs of the three adventures and the bestiary. For international backers, Specialized Collector + Thunderstone = $330 (225 + 35 + 50 + 20), Completist = $290 (270 + 20).

      And Numenera keeps on going! So what's the surprise, Monte?

      Another question: Will items such as the GM's screen and the tech manual be entering general publication later, either in print or PDF format?

      Can't wait to hear the Numenera theme...because I'm pretty certain we're going to get there.

      I'm guessing you'll be revealing that secret stretch goal of 190K by the time you wake up. Things appear to be picking up.

      Does "shipping costs covered for $250 and above" include the stretch goals books ?

    7. Matt - Dragon of the Obsidian Order on

      Is there any international shipping on the new pledge levels?

      Ah damn, sorry Montey, did not expand the comments and therefore missed your previous comment. Cheers.

      Same answer as I already gave. It's for you.

    12. Michael Caldwell on

      Same question as the others; is this a special character made by you for US, or does it go into the book(s)?

      It will be on an official character sheet, done up all beautifully with a page of background. But it's just for you. A one-of-a-kind character with at least one completely unique ability or item. You can contribute as much as you want to the character.

    14. Dan Knoop on

      Do we get input over our characters? Do you ask what interest we have to help create it? How much backstory? How will it be unique? Will they have a place in the universe? And like the guy above, is it going to be in a book, or just going to be given to us?

      Hi Monte!
      In regards to the new Unique Charactor level, I'm guessing that will be a page inserted to the book one gets shipped, as opposed to part of the book, Yes?
      I'm trying to decide if I should swap my Contributor level for it (So many decisions, too many options...) :)

      But thanks for the idea!
