Right. This reminds me - can't recall if I asked you guys this:

Did the 6th print correct the awful browned out color of the 5th print?

Thanks.

:)
I think so, but I've never seen a 5th printing to compare. The 6th print has a light tan colored page with dark brown lettering. It is fairly easy to read.

R-
Oh sorry. I meant that much of the artwork images were so browned out that one could not tell what the image was. Really dark, shitbrown and bad.

So, my question is about the images. Are they recognizable?

Tanks. :P
Very much so, and look great in color.

Thanks. Very glad to hear this. I'll have to watch for a dinged book sale or any other type sale, so I can get a 6th print.

And then hopefully, this kick will make and I'll get the 7th print - and then I'll have all of them.

They got a surprising jump yesterday, so they are now actually in striking distance of fully funding in the next 8 days.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

Nice. Over $500 today.

The Trolls are kicking ( ;) ) in some incentives to the pledges to drive more cash into the KS!

This is fun to watch!

Yeah, a very weak start, but they will lilely squeek in over the $15,000.00 level, just unlikely to unlock anything, which is the only things that would have pulled me into this KS. Thats how they should have done it, as a triple header KS for the new 7th prinitng and the new updated prinitng of Of Gods and Monsters, and finally getting the Tome of the Unclean into print. THAT would have gotten me in on this from the beginning. Likey enough others as well, that they could have set the funding level for 20 grand and have made it. Who knows, maybe in the closing 48 hours it will explode and unlock those things, and get me into it anyways.

The kick is sputtering a bit today. Still, several more days left.

It would be funny if they miss by one dolla - although I assume the host can make a determination about going forward with the project if they don't hit the goal.

But what caught my eye was in the add ons.....

TLG80213 A13-A17 Dungeons of Aufstrag

^^^^^^^^^^ = Yes please

-Mike
Heh, I did not look carefully!! :oops:

I was so excited about the new cover that I didn't notice the A13-A17!

And it's interesting because for years we all thought A13 was the final book in the series.

So now I'm intrigued, but for one problemo.

In the kickstarter website, I can't see how to add this add-on to my pledge.

Do I just need to increase from 15 to 30 and then I can choose this add-on later when TLG ships?

I've backed loads of KSs but don't recall any being so lacking in info and how to info on the page . .

Thanks for any assistance!

Yes, just pledge the appropriate amount for what you want to add, and when they send out the pledge manager you will be able to select your add ons. You will even be able to increase what you buy within the Pledge Manager. IE up your pledge, if you decide you want even more items.

Thanks Tree!

So, I will do that which means I'm upping for 2 PHs. I really don't need the 2nd one, so I'll send it to you!

Yay! For C&C! Now if by some chance they get to 18 grand, I will back it too. I am far more interested in the new Of Gods and Monsters and Tome of the Unclean.

That's what I'm looking for as well. They'll need a huge push to get there though.

Another extra unlocked (over 17K) - better start watching, Tree!

31 hours to go!

Highest I have ever supported a KS was close to $500, and that was Reaper mini's. RPG wise, the highest I have done is $250. Not getting nearly that high with this one. I will look to verify if the Tome and Gods and Monsters books will be available as add ons, and do the $1 plus route.

Can't get Tome of the Unclean unless you back at $60 or more. So I won't be backing this at all. I'll get them at some point down the road.

Heh, was kidding about the 9 - but I know you knew that!

$500 is awesome, you must have secured loads of great stuff!!

I've done 2 $100s and have been very happy with them.

Just remembered my Classic Monsters T-shirt - I believe that one was reasonable, and the T is very cool.

I hope TLG hits 18K.

Thanks to Treebore's skepticism, the kickstarter reaches 18K!!
