5E What do you think of this Kickstarter page?

I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
Good, but I don’t like the font. Sorry.

Among other things, that’s a terrible “c”.

(Also the Bloodweaver looks like Orko)

Thirding A Tough More Glass.

For the cover art, a party of characters cautiously exploring some ruin full of hidden dangers, displaying their unique talents always piques my curiosity more than static poses

In general the KS looks really good. Very informative and it is clear you've got the product ready to go. You got a load of samples that are helpful. I really only have two comments at this time:

1) I didn't see any information about shipping costs. Is that included in the cost or paid separately. This is usually something that is explained on a KS page.

2) I feel the first sentence of this paragraph is a bit "full," maybe revise the word choice a bit?

One more thing, if you have any reviews of the first book it might be helpful to have them on the KS page as well.

Hmmmm... I feel like the style isn't really fitting with the regular 5e books. I don't mean the content, but the presentation (background image, font and the like).

No, we don't copy WotC's trade dress.

The book says 9 new classes, but the page says 16.

Edit: I saw later that you are adding both books together. It's a tad confusing initially, though. Might want to list 9 at the top and then total it to 16 below.

I understand about straight up copying, and that's not what I mean. I prefer when the style remains relatively close to the other books I already own (or marries well together), so there is a certain continuity. Here I really feel like it's completely different and it clashes with the existing official material.

Well, the books are already made, using the established EN5ider trade dress (and one of them was released in 2017!) It's the Kickstarter page itself I'm really after thoughts on, rather than the actual books.

Ooops, my apologies. In that case it's fairly straightforward, I think it's pretty clear and the page displays what the book is about, so no complaints here!

Technically I think you would have to publish through the DM's guild to use the WotC trade dress. They could make it look more similar; however, this is the trade dress the EnWorld publishing has already established for their products.

Yep, the OGL specifically excludes trade dress. Though as you point out, that’s by the by, as we’ve had our own in EN5ider for years.

I'm laughing my class off over here. Sorry. Just didn't notice what dropping the "CL" would do until now for the original book and this one.

Anyway, the classes look pretty cool.
