A thousand (and more) thanks!

The Random Dungeon kickstarter is over: it ended up with almost $28,000 dollars and more than 1000 backers. That’s a far cry from the $2,000 I expected to earn.

In fact, I thought $2,000 was going to be a stretch. I was way off base: I vastly underestimated the generosity and enthusiasm of D&D fans. You guys saw my project and didn’t just say “I like that;” you said, “I’m going to make that happen.” That’s pretty awesome, and I’m hugely grateful to everyone who pledged, linked, commented, or just approved. I really hope that the finished project will make everyone happy.

Along the way, I got swept up in the excitement, and I came up with a lot of backer rewards! They’re all coming: I’ll be working an extra 40 hours a week (or more) until everything is finished. The posters are off to the printers, and I’m happy with how the DM’s notebook is coming out. All the work I’ve seen from my all-star DMs and artists looks great.

Speaking of rewards, here’s a little business to take care of:

  • Tavis and James at the Dwimmermount kickstarter are going to give us the Dwimmermount dungeon level: either because we really caught up to them sometime during the day or in celebration of the great day Dwimmermount had on Friday, thanks in part, I believe, to a little boost from our amazing backers. So that means that, by one means or another, we made every one of our goals!
  • If you wish you could still raise your pledge, or you missed your chance to pledge, no problem! For the next week or so, until we’re getting ready to mail, you can paypal me (paul at blogofholding dot com) the amount for your desired pledge level. Tell me what you want for your extra poster and/or extra swag, if applicable, and your address. If we run out of posters, or if we’ve already mailed, I’ll refund any orders I can’t fulfill.
  • If you want to keep talking D&D with me, I hope you’ll join me at Blog of Holding, where I post several times a week. Now that this kickstarter is done, I’ll get back to mining books for adventure hooks, rewriting rules, talking about my campaigns, and figuring out Bill Gates’ Armor Class.

    Finally, I’d like to give one more colossal THANK YOU! to you all, for one outstanding Kickstarter!

      What? There’s more swag out there? And all you want is another measly $5? Heck, let me look for change in the couch cushions (First I have to get a couch!) and I’ll be right with you. Just want to see what other SCS (Stuff Called Swag) you might come up with.

      Hey Grandpa,

      Each extra $5 will get you an extra poster (either the dungeon or wandering monster poster) or 10 Monster Manual business cards.

      Future $5 swag will include lulubook copies of all the PDFs I’m offering, but those aren’t ready for purchase yet, so don’t ask for them! :-)

      No pony?

    4. paul says:

      No pony, but maybe some couch cushions (couch costs extra).

      Generosity? No, no! My $27 was pure greed and selfish desire for something really cool.

      Soon it will be mine, my precious.

      Hey there Paul! I’d love to paypal you my pledge, but I’m having trouble locating your paypal. Would you be so kind as to point me in the right direction so I can give you my money? 😛

      Hey! You can paypal your pledge to paul@blogofholding.com.

      Grats on totally destroying your target :) Just flicked you some cash to try and get copies posted to New Zealand … lmk if you need anything extra to cover postage costs. Your payment levels and bonuses completely did my head in, so I’ll be happy with whatever I get!
