It's a bit of a shame, I would happily throw more money at them, but I have very little interest in buying the physical copy through Kickstarter. Maybe they will release a few digital only shiny tiers *cough hint*.

ya there price points for the kickstarter could use a little fleshing out. I could come up with 300 but definitely not 1 thousand :/

Please do something with the mold green KICK in Kickstarter on the main page. It looks atrocious. Just make it all like the STARTER part.

Those are Kickstarter brand assets; we use them unmodified or we aren't allowed to use them.

Yeah. Thinking about it, your artists seem to have some sense, so they would have made it better if they could. ;-)
BTW I love the new art style especially the picture of the team at the table.

Still maybe there is all green no puke sticker or all white.

I have turn for running a game in my meatspace gaming group. I was gonna run Delta Green, but now I cant wait to run Eclipse Phase 2e. In my gaming group I am the only one that played or all that aware of eclipse phase.

Glad to have got the email

Glad to have got the email heads-up when this was going live so I could obsessively hit refresh and get one of the $300 tiers, hopefully there is scope for the Ultimate Gatecrasher to get up to some shenanigans!

edit: also looking forward to whenever the Open Playtest starts, posting about the Kickstarter to my friends got them kinda interested :)

Ugh I want to pledge monies, but 40 is a lot for just digital stretch goals (especially with out knowing WHAT they are?)

NOT FINAL COVER

Congrats on the Kickstarter so far, but... what's a MPC? ;)

More seriously though, I'm very excited about EP2, as I think everyone is what with the buzz and the imaginations running wild. Keep up the good work!

Yes. Not 100% sure exactly how that Open Call will work at this time, but one of the Whispering Muse goals is to get to work with new-to-us authors!

If Transhuman is uncompatible with EP2 I hope it still includes a livepath system! That one's been so much fun in itself already :)

Well, as they started the default character generation method, is gonna to be package based, but the point buy will still exist.

I like the package based system for building a character when I already have a concept in mind but I love to just see where the Livepath system takes me or others and come up with the story to that. It makes it easier to come up with characters that have a rich background story.
We hardly got to play yet (only a few times) but my friend has so much fun with this system that he already has far over 20 characters ready ;)

Just to confirm explicitly, the $1000 tier includes the $175 flash drive with all the 1st Edition Eclipse Phase content, right?

Yes it does! It includes all books/games/electronic stuff we make, plus any special merchandise: t-shirts, buttons, stickers, etc. :)

In Adam's defense he was up late celebrating. There may be hangover involved. ;)

I fix broken things. If you need something fixed, mention it on the suggestions board.
I also sometimes speak as website administrator and/ moderator.

Oof, more like I've been sleeping a lot, I'm exhausted. :)

Not judging =)

Just a friendly reminder, in case the update comment ticked off the mental "I have to update Kickstarter" tick-box, while the main page still had things with the stuff. I hope you enjoyed well-earned celebrations.

I'm curious can you share with us the graph of funds gathered over time from Kickstarter? They seem to jump somewhat at the end of the campaign.

Yeah, that's a pretty common

Yeah, that's a pretty common Kickstarter phenomenon — among other things, soon-to-end projects get featured automatically, and users who've marked projects as "watched" get notifications that they have one last chance to become backers before the campaign ends. The end result is that successful projects usually see a nice jump in the final 48 hours or so…

There's a third party service that does this, Kicktraq: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/507486226/eclipse-phase-second-edition/
