We have now entered day 3 of the MHI Savage Worlds RPG Kickstarter, and we have raised half of what the last one did in a MONTH. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gallantknightgames/monster-hunter-international-rpg-savage-worlds-edi?ref=abcv1a
Since we are blowing through stretch goals, I’m going to go ahead and reveal the KS exclusive challenge coin.
This was designed by Jack Wylder, who did all the designs for the last two runs of MHI coins. We wanted to do something that would be in world, MHI company specific, that any employee could have. Jack suggested doing a coin for a Newbie class, to be given to them when they graduated from training in Cazador.
For the front side, we wanted to use the regular company logo. The previous company coins we did were green, so we decided to go with bare metal this time. Because we’d done that with a few coins last time, and they look really good.
These coins are numbered, and are exclusive to this event, so will never be made again.
Then we brainstormed what to do for the back. We needed a shared experience, that all graduating Newbies would have… The obvious answer was the dreaded Gut Crawl.
For those of you who haven’t read the books, the Gut Crawl is this awful experience they put the trainees through to weed out the squeamish. Hunters need to be able to still function in conditions that would make a goat puke. So Milo Anderson invented the Gut Crawl, and it’s even worse than it sounds. Making it through this is a point of pride.
Alan is updating the Kickstarter pledge levels for people who aren’t interested in the game, so they can purchase the coin by itself.
