Congratulations for all the 6 Papal Thrones being filled, and all the stretch goals unlocked!

I have waited long enough not to be racing against anyone, and I declare myself the 8th Cardinal. Wishing 2 more Cardinals to stand up...
(With all the previous supply caches to catch up it's not financially easy move for me, maybe not even a wise move provided I have no one to play with and thus all these will be quite likely ending up "enriching the closet". Now I'm persuading myself it is the necessary cost for committing Torg Eternity this deep.)

Iconic as in Quinn, Mara, etc? Or updates to the survivors of the Day One adventures? Or both? Both would be good.


The ones listed in the Core Book. Aiden, Tworek, etc.

For the future product, Day One heroes with standard Delphi Gear (i.e. $1000 worth of starting equipment) would be a great reinforcement, especially with the "Face" characters like Gin “Ginny” Inoue the Cheerful Receptionist or “The Kid” the Cosmopolitan Vagabond which Core Rule Archetypes don't have enough.

We are extremely lucky to have her devote the time, care and skill that she does.


When I first read this I thought you said "dilation time" and I'm thinking, "I haven't had that surgery yet..."

...

"Oh wait."

:lol:

I did the same misreading, probably because I have read "Why I Don't Wear Pierced Earrings", an article from "The Bride Was a Boy" author's blog just before that.

Even though the Number is now detailed in the Secrets of the Cyberchurch PDF, the Numberless would need to be mentioned in the sourcebook itself, and we just didn't have room to go into how these people would be handled.


Given the quality of the Previews (including the above Number/Numberless extract), you hereby have my blessing to publish rule-less contents. Who needs new Perks when you could use the space for great ideas instead :)?

(ok, I'll confess that I'm a big Amber Diceless / Fate Core GM, so I don't need no rules anyway)

Amber is awesome, though very draining as a GM - kudos! And I agree 100% about content which fleshes out the setting even without rules.

A bit shy under $160K. That isn't too shabby.

Have you been in any previous Kickstarters? Game On is what we used as the pledge manager.


Because of that, i already had an account so there wasn't much "move" involved, except mentally.

The big difference is that we had to decide all add-ons up front instead of just pledge at a level and work out the details after it closed. Either that, or their pledge flow is confusing. So I figured I would wait until after the holiday week when I had some time to figure out the details.

Unfortunately, they ALSO apparently do 3-week length campaigns, meaning I missed out by less than 8 hours. I assumed I had until Dec 10 at least. :cry: This sucks.

Seen from the outside, it looks pretty decent :)

How were the previous crowdfundings at this stage? I seem to remember that Aysle got ~50% larger, but I have no idea how much of it arrived as late pledges.

From the chat thread at GameOn - TL:DR looks like you won't necessarily have missed out.

@Gaunt_Man and Maybecedarian - There will be a late pledge period. No details on that yet though."
