Stretch Goal #2: The Archives
It took lots or arcane tinkering and more than a few misfires, but the portal is ours to command, and Dark Heart of the Dreamer is in our hands!
Having plumbed the portal of its extra-planar treasures, we find ourselves in the Archives. This room is a store-house for lore long-forgotten. We've found something here—a booklet of yellowing pages. If we reach our goal we can break the seal and unlock the ancient secrets within.
Of course we haven't entered this dungeon unprepared! In addition to our trusty weapon we carry a few magic items: a tiny doll that holds the soul of a dead adventurer, a enchanted book that shrinks and grows as needed, and the only remaining copy of Avon's Guide To Creatures Mystical and Mundane.
Stretch Goal #2: World of Dungeons
At $27,000 we'll unlock something we discovered in the Dungeon World vaults: a booklet of yellowing pages, apparently a set of handouts for something called World Of Dungeons, produced by one John Harper for One and Seven Designs back in 1979. Surely this is the same John Haper who created Lady Blackbird, The Wildlings, and Agon. Who knew he was so old?
World of Dungeons is a complete short roleplaying game that answers the question "If Dungeon World was the latest version of a classic roleplaying game, what would the original look like?" It'll be a free PDF download to all backers available for download at the same time as the finished PDF.
Stretch Goals #0, #-1, and #-2: Within the Devil's Reach, epub, and Online Monster Maker
We're also catching up with your tremendous support on our first day. Pledges were coming in so fast we couldn't even attempt to set stretch goals—by the time we posted them they would have been beat! But that doesn't mean we don't have some cool stuff for you.
First off, everybody who pledged $65 or more (i.e. anyone who got a hardcover copy) will be getting a free PDF copy of Josh Mannon's Dungeon World adventure Within the Devil's Reach. We've had the chance to check out Josh's adventure already and it's some great stuff!
Second, every backer will also receive Dungeon World as an epub and a set of HTML files as well as a PDF. We want to make sure that you're able to read Dungeon World on whatever device you prefer. If there's another format that you'd like, let us know, we'll see what we can do.
Lastly, we'll be using your amazing funding to create an online monster creator. Dungeon World monsters are already simple to make, but we thought it'd be cool to create a site where you can create a monster even more quickly, store your favorites, and get HTML code to display your creations.
Of course this is just a reflection of how amazing your support has been. We're still busy working with our printers and suppliers on how to make the books and other prizes as cool as possible, and it's all thanks to you. There's still more rooms to the dungeon, and more days in the Kickstarter!
