      You guys rock! Thanks for adding the Eighth adventure, even though we "missed it by that much..."!

      And congrats an a fantastic finish!

      Thanks guys, it was all of you who made this possible.

      All books and store items at NewCometGames.com will be available for sale.
      I haven't decided if I will use something like Backerkit or if we will just do it ourselves like we did with Star on the Shore. We will worry about that as we get closer to the shipping dates.

      If you are wanting Star on the Shore books earlier, they are available through Amazon or my webstore.

      Yes, thank you for the 8th bonus adventure! Will we be able to add on hardback editions of The Star on the Shore at the end of the campaign? Thanks!

      Bumped my pledge up to the hardcover level to help push to the next goal.

      Fully respect your decision

      We have looked at the costs and what it takes. We already escalated the stretch goals by adding in the 500 backer level. And we might decide to throw in the map if we can just get close to that $30K.
      We can't change the goals at this level because of commitments and agreements with the writers and artists. Switching goals changes where all the money goes, and leaves some people hanging.
      You will still get the full map, it just won't be in a handy tear out like in the last book.
      Having said that, we are not done yet. With 36 hours to go, we can blow past this next stretch goal and make a good run for it. But we need your help. Please share the project whever you can.

    15. Michael Fryda on October 11

      I would also prefer a map, but part of me also believes that it is up to the content creator to know their business plan and margins. To some extent I think it incumbent upon us to respect their fore-planning with stretch goals.

    16. Perry Tatman on October 11

      we may make the next stretch goal but I think that £30K for the maps is a step too far unless there is a sudden tremendous boost from somewhere. Personally I would much prefer the next stretch goal to be the Map rather than another adventure. Be glad to know what others think

      We need that map. Would be awesome if we make it.

    18. Jeff Vandine on October 8

      Pretty cool! Photorealistic handouts again! YAY! I have hopes that we'll make it to $30K for the foldout map, but at a minimum, I'd say the $25K goal is within reach, so YAY again!

      Where does Ben Burns live? I would not afford to pay airfare etc. for the $400 level pledge, but if he lived nearby by chance I might consider it.

      FYI, I wanted to let everyone know, someone had to lower their pledge from "The Dark One" tier to a lower tier level. What that means is that one of these valuable spots just opened up and you can grab it.

      @David, thank you for asking. Yes, this PDF will be searchable. I know we made a mistake putting out the non-searchable PDF for the Star.

      That is now corrected and we have a searchable PDF up on DTRPG if you were a Star on the Shore backer and need it, please let me know and we can get it to you.

      The Star was our first major adventure book. We made a few mistakes and learned from them.

      @Ulf, The Bridgewater Preservation Society meets at the Hayne's College Library.
      The librarian, Edwin Nichols, has been a member for over 30 years. Edwin is in his mid to late 70's and has seen way more than any man should.
      Lucky for him, he has amnesia for most of the things he has seen.

      That's all I can share for now, hope that helps.

      Hey Ben, do you already have a name of anyone in the Bridgewater Preservation Society? I plan to let my players meet a member next weekend as a future contact.

      In case you were thinking of getting the Limited Edition Leather Bound copy, we are down below half of them left.
      These will only be available through the Kickstarter and limited conventions.

      Raven, that picture is actually the back cover. I am certain it will also be in the book. And in the Art book. Not sure If I'll offer it as a separate print. Hope that helps.

      @New Comet Games, I wanted to know if the photo on the main page of this KickStarter of the cultist with bloody hands around the idol are in this book, I mean an actual photo of this and also will there be a poster of this as well? Thank you!

      There are reasons I'd rather do Add Ons after the campaign is over, and we still have plenty of time to hit all these stretch goals. Let's just keep working on spreading the news and getting new backers.

    43. Chitin Proctor on September 17

      @NCG - Will a price list of the add-one be posted so backers can up their pledges now (which would help in unlocking stretch goals too)? Or "no" because that'd throw off the stretch goal budgets when those monies get diverted to other things in BackerKit?

      @Anthony thanks man, I think you'll love it.
      @Kevin, Unfortunately no. The pull out map is a stretch goal so we either all get it, or no one. So help spread the word and lets hit those stretch goals!!

    45. kevin freksen on September 17

      i want that map! can it be a add on? ;) and will there be any other cool add ons,to spice up the atmosphere?

      I am definitely going to pop for the art book again -- it was a very classy add-on to the Star on the Shore, and I am expecting equally amazing art work from this one!

      Should break the 1st stretch goal today ....excellent!
