I would start up a betting pool on this... but I don't think anybody would bet on the side of it actually making it out in May. Actually I don't think anybody would bet on it making it out at all.
I actually set up a "guess the date" pool on RPG Geek a little over a year ago. 30+ folks signed up, and only five are left standing (bunch of optimists!). Winner gets a $25 Gift Certificate (redeemable anyplace but the Adamant store).
Doesn't he need more time to plagiarize art? Last I saw of this he was taking other people's images and mildly tweaking them and calling them his own. And where's that Buckaroo Banzai game I paid for several years back?
That photoshopped "art" he's been doing is fucking hideous.
My wife and I are four years and three months in on our oldest undelivered Kickstarter. I wonder who of the Tenkar Travellers has had the longest wait.
My oldest, not delivered Kickstarter is a $110 pledge for Steampunk Musha from May 2012 ... soon to be three years old ... sigh
Tomorrow marks the three-year anniversary for the funding of Signal Fire's Met. Alpha. Since funding, Goodman Games lapped this version by starting a new Met Alpha KS about two years later and not only delivering on it -- but releasing a metric ass-ton of new products for the game during the SAME KS. Meanwhile, Signal Fire can't even get their single book out during a period three times longer.
I shake my head while balling a soft fist as I read these comments. On the one hand (the shaking-head part) it seems a black eye to all small-venture financing when these clowns take your money and faith (of sorts) and piss it away. On the other hand, the soft-balled fist, I think it's awesome that a great number of you are investing in potential, the very basis of American Enterprise. That's immensely cool in my book. Thanks for believing in America. -Rick
The only Kickstarters I've ever backed are Reaper's first Bones line and Kevin Crawford's Silent Legions. Given the kinds of reports I keep ready, Reaper and Crawford are likely to be the only Kickstarters I would ever back again.
My oldest unfulfilled is Champions of Zed which supposedly had books delivered last October. A few people have reported receiving their books in the past two months nearly three years late. I have nothing.Close is Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls which has delivered most or all of the add ons but not the Deluxe Rules.My best success is Kevin Crawford who is now a "buy at the top level as soon as I know about it" and Joseph Bloch, the Greyhawk Grognard, who has done fewer products but who has the same done early tradition. He is a "buy in but not necessarily at the top level" but that has more to do with how his products align with my needs than quality.
