    There is a pledge level that includes a character commission, and that character will also be included with the comic as one of their "paper minis".

    Two of the three stretch goals have been met. Right now the comic will include a hex map of the area it takes place in, and a bestiary of the "monsters" encountered by the protagonists.

    I like this RPG a lot. I think it is a good fit for any action heavy campaign.

    Same here. I'm just trying to decide at what level to support it.

    Interesting note, the SW Kickstarter was fully funded 6 minutes after opening!

    I've been meaning to get more familiar with Savage Worlds. Maybe this is a good chance to do it.

    I've never particularly liked SW, but I've respected it - this might be an opportunity to change that.

    At the very least I'm pretty sure Pinnacle will manage to bind their pages together competently this time.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    I got their Flash Gordon books, which use the same format. Yeah it's pretty sturdy now.

    Believe it or not, they are switching to all hardbacks now (for major books going forward), in part, to increase durability of their product.

    I'm not surprised. My explorer's edition book fell apart during the first reading, and I baby my books to the point where it is literally the only one I've had any issue with in any system. I suspect mine was unusually bad (moisture changes in shipping or whatever), but I'm far from the only person who had problems with that printing.

    Maybe they should use the stitching used in the AD&D 1st edition first printing of the Player's Handbook. That thing is indestructible.

    My Flash Gordon hard-backs are well stitched and they are apparently so impressed with the durability that they are dropping soft-back support for the core rulebook.

    Just over 48 hours to go at this point.

    All three stretch goals were met, so anyone who pledges now will get the entire package guaranteed, no waiting to see what level they reach.

    Take a look at what the final stretch ended up unlocking -- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...ns/description

    This will be my last update on this one, I don't want to go into total spam mode.

    Thank you for the notification. Backed.

    I have an acquaintance who is a fan of Savage Worlds and I sat in on one session. I liked what I saw of the game.

    52 hours to go.

    Many stretch goals already met.

    BUT, they're about $2300 from a retrospective sketchbook of Howard's work, and about $17250 from an "R&D" goal that would make an actual Howard Taylor novel about some old favorite characters their next project.

    When it comes to map-making software and mapping assets for pen-and-paper RPGs, the sci-fi genre usually gets short shrift.

    GMs of sci-fi RPGs like Starfinder, Star Wars RPG, Traveller, Shadowrun, Stars without Number, and other game systems need and deserve a good set of tools and assets to create great looking battlemaps, whether printed for use at the gaming table, or for use in virtual tabletop software like Roll20 or Fantasy Grounds.

    I'm running a Kickstarter campaign to try to provide a solution. I hope some of you will check it out.

    Note that this new content would be in addition to the 10 sci-fi content Add-Ons that already exist for MapForge.

    PS: The 1st Update to this campaign has information about an 11th free content Add-On that will be released to backers once the campaign funds.
    MapForge is easy-to-use battlemap creation software for Windows and Mac OS X.
