Patronage Project? For the Monster book?

I was going to throw the Kickstarter link out on Twitter this morning but she's down at the moment Ben. I'll try again later!

Okay, I just kicked in my donation! C'mon people, let's see those pledges!
Yep yep!

For goodness sakes, the $25 level is essentially a pre-order-- you get a copy of the book after all. (And $25 might end up being cheaper than the cover price, too.)

Also remember, you aren't charged anything until the project hits full funding.

This is a great idea. I'm just trying to decide what level of patronage suits me best.

Does a "new" monster have to be new? There are lots of completely open content monsters out there that I'd love to see get the Trailblazer treatment. (Obviously nothing from the "monster stats are open, but monster names and descriptions are product identity" publishers - you know who you are!)

Also, I really like variant monsters. Would they be available as a "new" monster, or would that be seen as a waste of a slot which could be filled by something entirely new?

Are all the SRD monsters guaranteed a place? I like the idea of holding some of the less popular monsters "hostage" - raise $20 or the tojanida gets the chop!

We can sort that out in conversation, but rest assured I am comfortable using Open Content. (That much should be evident in Trailblazer.)

That's a perfectly acceptable use of your "monster." You describe the monster, then it's our job to work with you to make sure that what you want is acceptable both to you and to other gamers.

We'll make it work.

Heh... That's an interesting angle! I suspect we'll be looking for monsters to cut before we're done so I am certainly open to suggestions.

Wow, this Patronage idea really seems to be working. Well done and thanks to everyone who is supporting this project so far. :)
 
21 days left . . . has the funding stalled out? :(

Tangent: I thought I saw the amount at $1685 a few weeks ago, did something happen to with draw pledged money? Am I wildly delusional remembering this?

I hope not. I do expect there to be a flurry of activity as we close in on the deadline. It's how it seems to work out.

Perhaps... Everything looks fine to me and there have been no notices of withdrawn pledges.

may be we need to get the word out again?
Certainly anything folks can do to help would be appreciated.

I would point out (again) that the $25 dollar pledge is basically the same thing as pre-ordering the book.

If you have friends who enjoyed Trailblazer and are inclined to get the Monster book when it is released, please encourage them to pledge now-- you'll get a better looking book with more art! Everyone wins.
