    Agreed. And that's the part I need to figure out. What I can do to encourage/reward without giving the game away for free? No one gets anything if the Kickstarter doesn't fund. Free discount code for at cost book, if they back just for the PDF? A PDF of my first game? Something else? Put it into the ashcan itself. In big, bold, block letters: "If you like this game run it at your game store. Run it anyplace that lets people run games. Run it for your friends. Its future depends as much on the fans as it does the publisher." Tell it to people when you sell it at conventions. You can never assume that people will know what to do.

    I'll have a "Preview Edition" of CAPERS from NerdBurger Games available in the next few weeks. It'll be on DTRPG and I'll be taking softcovers to conventions. For those that want the PDF, too, I'll gather email addresses and send the PDF after the convention. I'm ALL IN on using an ashcan as a promotional tool. We'll see how it plays out. I'll be watching this really closely. It's a neat concept for building buzz. I think it's only going to be a win.

  • 11:16 AM - dave2008 quoted Shiv in post Small Book of Monsters for 5E
    A friend of mine is considering creating a Kickstarter to publish a small book of monsters that he's designed for D&D 5E. A lot of bigger companies have published books of hundreds of monsters. (These would be homebrew monsters. Nothing impinging on WotC IP. Not legal for Adventurer's League play. Info provided akin to what's in the MM. My author-friend has multiple freelance design credits for D&D.) Assuming the monsters in the book are the types of monsters you'd be interested in, would you be interested in a book that contains 30-50 monsters? How much would you pay for a fully laid out and illustrated PDF of, say, 30 monsters? 40 monsters? 50 monsters? Would you be interested in a reasonably-priced physical copy, like a softcover book? Craig If it is something I want, price isn't much of an issue, but as a rule of thumb I think about 5-10 cents per monster depending on the quality of the art and graphics.

Craig Well, I bought both 5th Edition Foes (Frog God Games, two copies) and the Tome of Beasts (Kobold Press) so I'd say that there's a pretty good chance I'd buy a physical copy of your friend's book too. The odds also go way up if your friend does...

  • 12:59 AM - Nergal Pendragon quoted Shiv in post Kickstart Dragon Magazine or any other rpg type magazine?
    Agreed. Jason Bulmahn once described to me the logistics of putting print magazines on shelves in bookstores and hobby stores. I don't recall enough of the specifics to describe accurately here, but suffice it to say that it's more complex and expensive than most of us realize. It's just not something that can be easily done nowadays, Kickstarter or not. Kickstarter adds an additional complication that reputation comes into play. WotC probably could never Kickstarter magazines because of their current rep in handling things like that. Morrus could probably do it with ease, though.

It's just not something that can be easily done nowadays, Kickstarter or not. can you even kickstart a magazine? isn't there something in KS rules like "You can't kickstart things with ongoing costs, just one time costs" maybe I'm thinking of something else...

  • 03:56 AM - Umbran quoted Shiv in post The Walking Dead 3.11 - I Ain't A Judas (Spoiler Alert)
    Andrea finally starting to think straight. Though not ready to commit murder. Yeah. Willing to shoot at humans she doesn't know in the smoke, but not willing to put a knife to a person she now knows to be pretty darned close to evil. Rick entrusting Daryl with keeping an eye on Merle while he heads out with Michonne and Carl. Good to see Rick finally trusting Michonne a bit. No, he doesn't trust her. He as much says that the trip it so find out if he can trust her. Look who he takes with him - the person he knows least, and the person who's just told him he should stop being leader. Rick's planning to build some trust here. Carl's talk with his dad. Season 3 Carl is a far cry from Seasons 1-2 Carl. He's pretty bad-ass. Love what they've done with Carl in the show. While realistic, I'm pretty sure turning him into a grown up so fast is gonna bite them in the butt.
