A Glimmer of Green Light

Published January 8, 2014 16:54:51

We've hit our third milestone! This is the real, first goal of this campaign — a full, if modest, budget for the creation of a 10,000 word adventure-world with a few black and white illustrations. Effectively, at this point, the project (including its pitches) is "green lit". We still have some preparatory work to do before we can get our writers writing and our artists arting, and we still have milestones ahead all oriented on making each offering better, of course. But thanks to you all pledging over $1250 per adventure, each one now has a solid foundation and a solid budget to build upon. So thank you again! This has been an amazing launch, and we're excited to see more Fate adventures make it out into the world. We would not and could not be doing it without your help, support, and guidance. Folks at the "Insider" level of $12-per-adventure will be hearing from us soon as we start to make some choices about artists and priorities for release, once we have a chance to sort out things like schedules and our overall strategy (under Hat founder Rob Donoghue's supervision) for adventure design with our four pitch authors. While that's happening we'll be working on finishing up Venture City Stories, and will be giving you some peeks into that process as we move it along. Stay tuned, folks!

Lucian Smith Congratulations! This is exciting. I have a technical question, and this is the only place I've seen so far where I can comment, so forgive me for slightly derailing the post, but: will the method one is supposed to use to get the adventures be different for patrons vs. the general public? In other words, will patrons be asked to get the PDFs from the 'pay what you want' site, and just put in "$0"? Or will they be available here as well?

Evil Hat Productions We'll likely put them both places, tho it'll likely be most convenient if you grab them over on DriveThru for $0 as you suggest.

John Buczek I always feel bad for getting them for $0, like I did for all the ones I got as a Kickstarter Backer. I know I supported elsewhere but it seems like cheating. Plus, doesn't it lower the "per download" numbers for your final Pay What You Want accounting?

Evil Hat Productions Nope. We don't count free downloads.

Lucian Smith Yeah, I asked because of the same reason as John--I feel guilty downloading something for $0 even if I've already paid for it elsewhere. With an explicit endorsement of the practice, however, I will try to quash the guilt ;-) Thanks!

Jaime Robertson Are you going to publish "Chrome City" or "Ancestral Affairs" ?? If they are already published, where I can found them?

Evil Hat Productions They're not already published and we're still figuring out what we're going to do with them. :)
