    Think you meant to type 13 there, WampaX.

    Which is still pretty darn impressive utterly insane of course. Especially considering that I'm pretty sure there was something like $20k banked by 2 or 3pm PST today.

    Approx $300 to go right now.

    It's been out of print longer than the others, I think.

    The great part is that, even though I'm only pledging for one book, I get the opportunity to buy the other books later, since they'll be in stock!

    Not to mention the going-to-be-awesome bonus comics!

    Another goal reached. I'm waiting for "Giant Dwarf" to be used instead of additional grappling hooks as a rising method.

    Quite a few people also upgraded to some of the various multi-book packs that were added today (or waited until they were available). The two "Up to the Split" options (signed and non) account for $22K just between the two of them (ignoring international shipping):

    $192 * 74 = $14208
    $262 * 30 = $7860

    $14208 + $7860 = $22068

    Now, as I said, I'm sure a good chunk of that was upgrades from earlier packages. Still pretty impressive, I think.

    As far as I can remember, Rich and Keith are on fairly friendly terms with each other. So it wouldn't be the biggest surprise in the world to me if this was that Keith Baker.

    That's what I planned on doing as well. I can't imagine there being a problem, since it would be for personal use and not for sale. I also planned on taking the graphs and adding those in as well for the humor.

    And who is Keith Baker?

    Game Designer, noted for creating the world of Eberron. In the contest that resulted in Eberron, he and Rich competed against each other (as per the New World articles you see in the Gaming section of the site), but to my knowledge they're on good terms. He cameo'd in a print only comic.

    According to Project Wonderful's chart thing, the start of this pledge drive seemingly more than doubled site traffic.

    I've been wondering whether it will get thrown in or not. It's co-published with APE games and Rich isn't the only author. So it might not factor in so neatly as other items from stock.

    The original Dungeon of Dorukan game is still out of print. So maybe it will get a drive sometime.

    Question Re: The OOTS Reprint Drive at Kickstarter: Pledge now to get exclusive rewards!

    Wow, just wow! Next stop is surely a reprint for the last book: Don't Split the Party. Please? I waited on getting this one (lack of money at the time) and so it's the only one I don't have. I need to see a reward with that in it... fingers crossed.

    So glad to see that OOTS is so much loved.

    Are you planning to put the graphs in a section by themselves or as section markers between the four stories. The busting of the Julio Scoundrel bonus would probably make a nice intro page for the Julio bonus story, for example.

    You should also probably wait until scans of the crayon drawing are (or are not) made available by the prize winners, some of whom indicated they would make them available.
