Golden Age Champions should help a little with that. Even if by another publisher, it's got Champions in the title and is set in the official universe. But unless some wealthy gamer donates a big mess of capital to Hero Games, I don't see what else the company can do at this point. :(


Don't worry. It's only a matter of time before one of us wins the lottery.

Really? Win lottery? You have a beter chance of getting hit by lightning. Or getting that $15 per hour minimum wage bump.

Have you seen his speeches? It's amazing he didn't deck himself more often.

I boosted my pledge 10%. Not dramatic (or onerous to me), but if we all did that it would amount to a big step toward our goal.

I'm hearing from a number of friends and allies that they've marked the kickstart to remind them later, or are waiting for better financial circumstances like a forthcoming paycheck to back us. While I don't quite get that strategy (after all, KS doesn't charge you until we fund or don't on the 17th), I do hold out some hope for a late rush...

If money is an issue, then the reminder seems valid since you'll be looking at whether you can afford to back right before the end of the campaign. If you back earlier you run the risk of not being able to afford it when the campaign closes. If you set a reminder and back it anyway, then the campaign can get hit with a drop in pledges as people discover they really can't afford it.

 

If money isn't the issue, my (admittedly limited) experience is that those who set a reminder aren't sure they're going to back at all.

 

Personally, I just pledge my top amount up-front and be done with it for campaigns I know I'm going to back. Since I tend to track the progress of campaigns I back, I suppose I might follow LL's example at the end of the campaign if I felt very strongly about making sure it funded.

Things (normally) pick up during the last week,  and that's almost 34 hours from now. I wouldn't count on any stretch goals, but I'm not too worried about it funding. And if there really are a lot of people with reminders set as Darren mentioned, all of the real action may be in the last 48 hours.

I'm glad we get another great Hero System book!  Sure, I'd prefer it to be a full-color, hardcover book...but the content's what matters, and having a physical book matters a lot to me. So, huzzah!

Agreed. The bells and whistles would have been nice, but what's coming is what I really want.

Last update from Jason (a day or so ago?) was they're finishing up the layout and expect to have an initial draft in a week or so. He didn't give a projected release date.
