Stretch Goals

RED AEGIS Digital Boxed Set: Miscellaneous items like those included in tabletop boxed sets of yore, this collection of bonus goodies contains pregenerated character, encounter charts, maps, and more. The digital boxed also includes two notable exclusives: the RED AEGIS Hacker's Guide and RED AEGIS Unleashed (see descriptions below). Finally, the Digital Boxed Set also grants you access to the Red Aegis Online Tools (character builder, lineage designer, and so on).

RED AEGIS Hacker's Guide: This accessory contains system "hacks" for incorporating RED AEGIS into other game systems. Initial target is the Pathfinder roleplaying game, with additional systems added with stretch goals.

RED AEGIS Unleashed: An epic-sized adventure path that spans 9 time periods (through stretch goals). Each adventure is accompanied by a novelette that ties into the adventure arc. The first module will be penned by Brian R. James and Ed Greenwood.

RED AEGIS Tactics: A tactical skirmish game that is designed for 2-6 players. Players construct an army using everything from axe-wielding barbarians, to spell-slinging archmages--from incredulous biker gang vagabonds, to futuristic space soldiers. This is truly the battle of all ages. Construct your army, deploy to the fields of battle, and defend the prestige of your legacy

      How do I get a physical copy of the 13th Age Hacker's Guide?

    2. Vorpal Games Creator on August 22, 2013

      @Tom: Thanks buddy!

      @Marshall: I sympathies with your conundrum. I prefer physical game books as well. The unfortunate reality is that small press print runs are very expensive. Given our current number of pledges we going to have the printing company produce 500 copies of the hardcover. In the publishing world 500 copies is quite small. Larger publishers produce thousands or tens of thousands of books in a single print run, keeping costs low. Looks like the $50 pledge level may be your best bet.

      Just upped my pledge to push us over $59k. I think the DW stretch goal is a shoe-in. Anyone think we'll get to double the art budget at the $75k level?

    4. Marshall A Myers on August 22, 2013

      I love the concept of this game but I have a minor quibble, and I hope you can clarify.

      I backed at the 75$ level because I want to the hardcover, however it looks like that level is not getting any of the Stretch goal rewards - is that correct?

      If that is true, then my issue with that is this: I want to support this game as much as I can - I can't go up to 100$ for personal reasons, so it looks like I have to drop my pledge level to 50$ to get the cool stretch rewards - and I don't want to do that either. Thus my conundrum.
