    "Order of the Stick" Kickstarter shatters records, about to top $500K

    As you probably know, Order of the Stick is Rich Burlew's web comic about stick figure D&D adventurers. A number of the older compilations are out of print, so two weeks ago Burlew set up a Kickstarter to raise $58,000 within a month.

    As I write this with 15 days to go, the total is at $483,626 and rising by $30,000 a day. The fund raiser is due to top a half million dollars some time this evening, and could top $900,000 by the time it's done. Amazing.

    This puts OotS solidly in the top ten Kickstarters of all time. Rewards include the various books he's reprinting, fridge magnets, an OotS coloring book, stickers, a hit point tracking pad, and digital PDFs of brand new OotS stories. Be sure not to miss the update page, full of bonus cartoons and a few astonishing graphs.

    I signed up for Snips, Snails a while ago, and I'm amazed at how much stuff I'll be getting with that one book.

    I finally pledged my $10, and I'm thinking about upping my pledge to get Snips, Snails.

    I signed up for a fridge magnet just to help out a bit. I'm now in for a book, a magnet and the art prints.. and getting free pdfs, stickers and a colouring book! Absolutely fantastic stuff - I think I'll add Snips to my pledge. Should have enough cash in April :-)

    (There aren't any Paizo hardbacks that month, are they?)
    D&D, frankly, is the most fun when you get your ass handed to you but you still manage to find away to come out on top of the pile of corpses, looking like a typical Conan novel cover. - joachim

    Stupid question: which reward level gives Snips? It looks like that reward is currently sold out.
