Sometimes success can't fully be planned for. Sometimes success exceeds all expectations.
Then we have Strongholds & Streaming.
A day into the campaign? $730K to raised. A month left to fund.
This is the success many dream of but few, if any, achieve.
Oh yeah, what's the product?
A hardcover book (or PDF!) for 5th Edition that gives your character something to spend their money on and extend their influence in the local area. Raise armies! Research spells! Spy on your enemies!
This is a book!
We’re printing a book and we need money for art and layout and printing costs. The core release is 128 pages, hardcover, but the content and page count increase with each stretch goal!
That means the book you order just gets more content as more people pledge. It grows!
A Style Of Play
More than just a set of rules and charts, this book also describes a style of play that assumes your character becomes more interested in influencing the world around them. You’ll still adventure and fight monsters, but this supplement gives you tons of fun things to do during your downtime.It's also:
Because the other goal of this kickstarter is to raise money to cover the lease on studio space for us to stream our next game starting with character creation! I’ve already spent several thousand dollars on gear, we just don’t have any space to stream and we have very specific requirements. No, your garage won’t do. No, your living room isn’t big enough. :D We’re basically building a TV Studio.
Since finding studio space means signing a multi-year lease and being on the hook for a lot of money, it terrifies me. It’s my hope that enough people want this book, or want to support the stream, to cover some or all of that cost. If not, no big deal. You still get a great book!Follow this one, if even only for a buck. It will be glorious as a success or even as a successful failure.
I may even back for the book. I'm sure there's enough to yoke for my S&W games.
BTW, watch the videos in the updates. If you want to see the nervousness unexpected success can result in, the first is priceless. I like it, because it is real and unvarnished.
