Kickstarting a 2nd Edition of Crimson Exodus

Crimson Exodus 2nd Ed Kickstarter


This weekend I launched my first kickstarter. It is about time that Crimson Exodus is updated with all the new rules presented in Fantasy Dice so I’m releasing a second edition. By doing a kickstarter I can afford to spend a bit more on the production and so make it a nicer product for you guys.

There is a lot more information over on the kickstarter project page, so go and have a read if you’re interested.

So far it has been a good start with several backers able to see past my cheesy video presentation, and have so far pledged over 25% of the funding in the first 24 hours. I am very grateful and excited. The goal is the minimum I need to pay an artist for a new cover, pay kickstarter fees and taxes, as well as print and ship the books. I don’t expect to make money on this, but I do expect to end up with a nicely produced book I can be proud of and if the project is a great success then there should be enough to produce some nice extras. I’m thinking of professional maps and more illustrations and I also have material that I have been working on that I am considering if I can release as part of the kickstarter.

My philosophy is that anyone who is a backer should get any additional material produced as part of the kickstarter for free, or at-cost for non-digital products. I really want to reward the support and so I am determined to release some of the new products I’ve been working on to kickstarters before anyone else. I am preparing these now and will be announcing them over the next few weeks.

Thanks for reading and a special thanks to those of you who have already helped to spread the word on your own initiative or backed the kickstarter. You are the first to stand up and be counted and I am greatly humbled. We salute you intrepid adventurers!
