The Kickstarter for the MHI Employee Handbook and RPG is still moving right along. We are now at $48,401 with 494 backers. We have hit our funding goal to launch the project, so now we want to make this as big as possible in order to give you guys more extra cool stuff.
Kickstarters usually follow a pattern, where there is an initial big burst of excitement and a bunch of pledges during the first week, and then it usually tapers off for the middle part of the month, which is usually called the doldrums, and then it picks up again over the last few days while everybody who hesitated or wanted to see what the stretch goals are jumps in. Luckily for us, we managed to fund pretty fast right out the gate, but we have definately entered the doldrums.
So to make it through the next couple of weeks, we will be announcing a couple of new things soon.
Right now we’ve got two stretch goals on the board. At $50,000 (which should be fairly soon) we are adding an extra book of 13 monsters and bad guys called the Devil’s Dozen, written by me and Steve Long. These are more villianous things from around the MH universe that want to eat your face, many of which you’ve never even heard of.
After that, when we hit $60,000 we are adding MHI logo dice. All of the higher tiers will get these thrown on their existing pledge for free, but anybody will be able to pledge a little extra and get a set. Personally, I am going to replace every d6 in every board game in my house with MHI dice, because MHI dice are MORE BETTER.
We’ve got some other things planned, but the key here is that the faster we reach the stretch goals, the faster we can reveal new ones.
We have been listening to comments and feedback as we go too. One of the things people have been asking about is the new, one time only, limited edition MH patch, that is only available on the higher tiers. We are working on a way to add more stuff for everyone, but still give that extra reward to the folks who were willing to pledge more. Details will be coming soon.
