Funny story: yesterday, while I was getting prepped for surgery, the anesthesiologist told me that I should avoid driving, operating heavy machinery, and impulse buys. My wife, who knows me very, very well, said, That means no Kickstarters, hon. I laughed and agreed.
GUESS WHAT DROPPED YESTERDAY?
Continue reading The ‘How long will Moe last before he scrounges up another $260?’ DELTA GREEN: THE CONSPIRACY Kickstarter.
Seriously. They picked a goal of $50,000: it’s now at $2.161* million. And note that the Avatar Legends RPG Kickstarter dropped yesterday.
I’m just going to wait until the last 48 hours, then see what goodies are available then. It seems the most efficient use of my resources.
*It went to 2.165M while I was writing this. And 2.166M when I went to go check again. This is one of the monster Kickstarters.
The DELTA GREEN: THE CONSPIRACY Kickstarter is going to be the 25th anniversary edition of the original DELTA GREEN setting, and the question is: how many minutes before it gets funded? My only hope — MY ONLY HOPE — is that the stretch goals and higher tiers involve stuff I’ve already bought, because it’s gonna have all new art and layout and they’ll clean up some of the details and… look. There’s a reason why my copy of the first edition is probably worth at least five hundred bucks. And it’s well-used.
The night at the opera starts 08/09.
Everything in the Steve Jackson Games’ GURPS 2021 PDF Challenge Kickstarter’s unlocked, so if you were waiting for maximum return on your investment then now is the time to back it. It’s all digital, too, so no worries there. One reason why I buy a lot more European RPGs these days…
The Steve Jackson Games’ GURPS 2021 PDF Challenge is a good deal, as long as enough people sign up to hit all the stretch goals. Which is almost certainly going to happen; so it’s a good deal. There aren’t going to be any physical books here, either.
Specifically, the forty year anniversary reprinting of the original boxed edition of the Call Of Cthulhu RPG. This is old-school stuff, friends: Chaosium scanned near-mint versions of the originals, cleaned them up, added little extras, and now here it is. I should also note that I checked, and Chaosium is planning to print this in Europe: i.e., not via slave labor. We all remember the wretched Sassoon Files affair, I’m sure…
Backers should be getting an email link to the Dropbox files any moment now. Feel free to let me know if there are any problems. For those who missed the Kickstarter, the story will be available on Kindle some time in the middle of July.
I would like to thank again everyone who pledged.
If you backed, you should be getting one via whichever email you used for the Kickstarter. It’s just to confirm email addresses and what name people want to have for the Special Thanks section: the “Pickman’s Model” Kickstarter was all-digital and limited-scope, so there’s no Backerkit to navigate this time. I should be getting the funds soon; once that happens, it’s just a matter of getting the final art, and putting it all together.
If you did not back, I am hoping to have the story ready for sale by the middle of July. Be sure to check here!
No Backerkit on this one, so if you missed out, welp, it’ll be on Kindle Unlimited eventually. We funded and to spare, which was awesome; and the extra money will make it a lot easier for me to put out the next chapbook (tentatively titled DESCISIONS) later in the season. So, it went well! A big thank you to everybody who backed.
I’m sure everybody’s very grateful for that. The A proper picture for my ‘Pickman’s Model!’ Kickstarter ends tomorrow, at 11 AM EST. Hopefully I’ll be able to get the final art soon after that, which will let me get the short story out to the public in a reasonable amount of time. Can’t wait for people to read it!
