So you missed out on the Delta Green Kickstarter. Fear not!

You can still pre-order the stuff you want via Backerkit. You will not, mind you, get the discount that you would have gotten if you had ponied up the three hundred bucks for all the hardcovers/PDFs in the first place… unless, of course, you pledged something to begin with. But it’s still worth it, I think. Certainly I’m looking forward to getting Mythos-RPG-Supplement-of-the-Month shipments for the next year or so…

My inevitable combination #DeltaGreen Kickstarter / Patreon post…

Now that the game has hit $260,000 on Kickstarter, I’m gonna show you folks the latest Patreon short-short-short that I wrote for my Patreon account: 100WS-ElderGod.  It really and truly is a Cthulhu Mythos story! Just… from the other side.

I’ve also updated my Patreon milestones with a $200/month tier.  It will upgrade the $60/month one: instead of a 1,000 short-short-short story per month, my patrons will get a 3,000 short story. I figure that I’ll figure out how to write them by then…

The Delta Green Kickstarter finally created “I want everything” tiers.

I understand why they held off on that – Kickstarter is useful as a servant, bloody dangerous as a master – but I found it cruel, cruel hard to wait.  However… for a mere $300 you can have every Delta Green product that they’ve funded or will fund in this Kickstarter.  Which is pretty nice, from the point of view of just the hardcovers: player’s guide, GM’s guide (yes, they explicitly said that this tier will get you both), GM’s screen, King in Yellow campaign sourcebook, Pelgrane Press’s ‘historical’ Delta Green game… and it’s safe to assume that the introductory campaign book is going to get funded at this point, and very likely the Majestic-12 sourcebook, too.  Add in all the PDFs and it’s getting to be a haul.

And for another fifty bucks, you get all the old stuff in PDF/e-book form, too. That, I won’t bother with, because I already have it. But if you don’t… well, I’m not saying don’t do it.  I mean, you’ve come this far, right?

The Delta Green KS passes $180K, and my bank account screams…

…as now I have to squeeze another fifty bucks out of it to get the next unlocked tier item.  I mean, what am I gonna do? Pass up a King In Yellow campaign book? I know darned well I’m just going to buy it anyway.

Well, the good news?  There’s only currently a few more items that might force me to torture my bank account further until it gives up the cash.  No more than… [click click click] …one hundred bucks.  Sorry, no: one hundred and five.

[pause]

Dag, but these people know how to properly exploit geeklust.

18 Days to go on the Delta Green Kickstarter.

…and it’s going well. And by which I mean it’s taken up every penny that I have been given or scrounged to this point*, and promises to bust my budget some more in the very near future. The shipping charges on this are going to be huge. HUGE!

The folks at Arc Dream** are pretty much pushing this Kickstarter across the social medias as well. ‘Mediae?’ – At any rate, the more places it ends up, the more free stuff I get as an insanely all-in backer. So let’s not pretend that I’m an disinterested observer here, OK?

*I did not collect the $250 in one day to hit that ‘buy the six volumes hardback’ goal, alas.  Which is just as well; there’s a lot of discrete hardbacks appearing in this Kickstarter.

**For those coming in late: Delta Green is ‘Cthulhu Mythos’ meets ‘X-Files’ meets ‘Your guns won’t save you.’ Definite cult status among roleplayers, if you’ll pardon the pun…

Assuming anybody cares about the one-day pledge drive…

…and, let’s be honest? It was one of the sillier ones I’ve done.  You thus are under no obligation to care.  Anyway: thanks to a new wonderful donator, I’ll be able to grab one of the add-on PDFs*. Awesome!

No, really. It’s always awesome to get paid for something. People who sneer at that probably have other issues in life, poor things. As for me, I shall read my PDF in contentment. …And, well, in existential horror, because it’s Delta Green.

THE DELTA GREEN KICKSTARTER IS LIVE. (With a one-day pledge drive.)

Am I shouting? I am shouting. It is live, and it is spectacular.

…And, what the heck: one-day pledge drive. I will spend whatever I get on the Delta Green Kickstarter: if I somehow manage to hit $250 (I will not manage to hit $250) I’ll get the six-book option and… we’ll figure something out at that point. Maybe I’ll host a contest and give ’em out as prizes. Maybe I’ll send a couple to the troops. Maybe I’ll just cackle madly and run a game via Skype. There’s just no way to know what will happen!

…Sorry. I’ve wanted a new edition for, like, forever. Delta Green and In Nomine remain my two favorite game worlds.

Oooh: Delta Green is soliciting scenario pitches.

For, like, money. Unfortunately, I don’t have an active DG campaign running (more importantly, I don’t have the time to come up with something from scratch), but if you’ve ever thought that that one Delta Green adventure your wrote up was pretty special then now would be the time to go dust it off and revise it for submission.  Also: they’re gonna start the Kickstarter soon!  Which means we get to finally see just how badly it all went to Azathoth since the fall of Majestic-12.

In the (e-)mail: Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions.

A digital copy of Delta Green: Extraordinary Renditions was a backer-only reward for the Delta Green: Tales from Failed Anatomies Kickstarter. I’ve been looking forward to it – it’s an anthology of Delta Green (government conspiracy Cthulhu horror) fiction, after all. I’ll let you know how it is.

Tweet of the Day, Delta Green Will Return! edition.

Coolness. I am curious to see where Delta Green ended up.  It ended up somewhere bad, of course – but that’s bad in the ‘bad luck’ sense, and hopefully not the ‘bad game’ one:

…What? Oh, that staffer with racial issues is apparently no longer at Kickstarter*. I can link to projects again, if I want to. And so I shall.

*Obviously, my boycott had nothing to do with it, but it’s the principle of the thing.
