Re: Rewards For an easy reference listing exactly what you get at each Reward tier, check out the chart down below! Most of the Backer goodies should arrive well before the ebooks. In fact, you'll be able to download the wallpapers within 24 hours of the Kickstarter funding in a variety of screen sizes!
Wait, what is Kickstarter again and how does it work? Kickstarter is neither a bank, nor a charity. Click HERE for more about this cool, crowdfunding tool!
You can see more of Jason's amazing artwork here and of course in the Cosmothea videos! Other wonderful artists we've worked with on Cosmothea include Annemie Thijs, Mike Antrim, Simon Buckroyd and Adam Schmidt. I recommend them all highly and I'm sure you'll see more of their work in the days ahead. Some of their work appears in our Rewards and we'll bring you more great art if we reach our Stretch Goals!
DIVINE SYNTHESIS: We are excited to have so many great authors on board and ready to roll should we reach the Divine Synthesis Stretch Goal! (See Stretch Goals below.)
Risks and challenges
Several of the authors have already started writing their stories and we have a lot of momentum going. But people get sick, and the post office and printers hit snags now and then. Backup solutions to Reward fulfillment are already in place, in case a fulfillment center struggles to keep their commitment, or jacks up their prices on us. I’ve worked very hard to dot our i’s and cross our t’s, to do this thing right.
I value integrity and communication, so expect me to be as transparent as possible the whole way and keep you informed on our progress.
I’ve deliberately kept the reward types and quantities as manageable as possible, such as by having DriveThruFiction handle some of the shipping and handling so that we can get your goodies to you as quickly as possible (and a bit cheaper for Int'l Backers) and I can get back to what I do best, telling great stories and helping others do the same!
While QT Games LLC is a new kid on the block, Cosmothea has been around for quite some time, and I have been developing the concept, the roleplaying game and campaign setting which all of the stories are based on, for the past 34 years. Between a solid, talented team of authors, editors and artists, with many years of personal and professional experience, we’ll see this thing thru till the end. I’m confident that you are going to be very pleased with what we’re putting together!
Please tell your friends, family and coworkers about Arcane Synthesis and its sister anthology, Divine Synthesis, and let’s prove that the little guy can win against the odds! Together, I am confident we can go the distance and beyond. Thanks so much for having faith in my dream. — Bob WhitelyLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
