    Miniatures Pack: Two custom designed, unique card model miniatures depicting your character and your customised ship (from the available ships in Elite: Dangerous). The miniatures will be unique to you and not included with the actual book. It can also, if you wish, be available as a download from the RPG's official website. The miniatures will be provided to you as a high-resolution A4-format PDF file with the ship and character miniature pieces and instructions to print and build the miniatures. You will be asked to provide me with a description of your character (including a photo of your face for me to draw from if you want the miniature to look like you) and you can specify a design to be applied to the ship including a decal of your choice (dependent on copyright and fair-use restrictions). The longer delivery date on this pledge is to ensure that the work in designing and drawing an unknown amount of character miniature models could impact on the time to produce the book so it will be done after the book has been written.

    BETA Tester: You will be given access to a pre-release copy of the rules as well as ship, character and equipment sections to allow you to play, review and test the game. The rules set will be as complete as possible, but since the book's content is tied to the development of the game some elements may be missing.

    This will be provided so you can try out the rules and provide some feedback to the developers to help improve and refine the game before the final release in March/April 2014.

    You will also be credited in the rulebook under the title of "Beta Testers".

    Illustrations, graphics, expanded and background content will not be included with the beta release documentation. This reward will be included with ALL higher reward levels.

    Note that the Beta testing phase will begin in or around November 2103. The Playtester Pack is distinct from this pledge in that it allows access to the game system as it is developed, with initial playtesting (or Alpha testing) scheduled for June/July 2013.

You will get to name the character and define the character’s history, attributes and personality as well as his or her homeworld (or station), ship, career and motivations.
