Want extra copies of some of the rewards? Here is a list of add-ons currently available. To add these on, adjust your pledge amount to include the price listed below, and add in your note what add-ons you are including.
This will be confirmed in the survey at the end of the campaign. You don't have to add shipping unless you're outside the USA, and then only if the add-on puts you over the item count. See below for the international shipping charges. We're at the mercy of the international shipping industry. Prices fluctuate whenever a postal service somewhere in the world raises their rates.
If the price of international shipping rises after you make your pledge, we'll eat the difference. This shipping cost covers all items shipped as part of your pledge reward. For example, if your normal pledge reward included two books, and you add-on two more items, you would not need to increase your shipping cost, as you only have four total items.
We will hold your order until all the items are available, and only ship one package, unless you tell us otherwise.
If you want to split the shipping, and receive your items as they become available, please contact us at contact fasagames. Risks and challenges All projects carry risk, whether building a tall building, making a movie, or any other complicated endeavor.
Game development is no different in this regard. While much has already been done to validate our assumptions wherever possible, there is always the possibility of something unexpected cropping up.
Games take time to create and we don't always know which challenges are going to the most time consuming.
Our project managers have taken this into consideration, but there is always the risk it may not be enough. I have read a lot of the surrounding Earthdawn novels in my time and while their stories are good, they were far from well written. This short story is possibly the story that I have enjoyed most in the fiction for Earthdawn. The Different It needs to be said that most editions of this game have combined the players and game master books together in one core rule-book.
This edition shrugs that idea and separates these into two books. Multi-discipline characters are apparently hated by the current developers. So far I have read the section three times and I still do not fully understand it. It is the most convoluted system now and very apparent that it was built on the side of the GM so they could heavily discourage cross discipline characters. Trust me when I say I am not a fan of a cross discipline character, but these rules take it to another level.
Magic got a massive revamp in this version. There is good and bad in this but it is the thing that struck me right between the eyes when I started reading the magical classes. The first trigger was the fact that magicians now get given a free talent!
Given one! Spellcasters see to most overall changes. They were re-developed almost from the ground up. A lot of factors fed into this and the major overhaul made for a better result than any patchwork…  The paradigm where spellcasters took considerably more legend points to increase their Circle seemed to be based on the logic spellcasters were inherently better than other adepts.
In many ways, this was correct.
They had a lot more options and power at their disposal…  So, a host of solutions were implemented. Spellcasters now have the same number of talents required to advance in Circle. They get two free talents, one of which upgrades. This is roughly paid for by their reduced Durability.
But their spells now officially cost legend points to learn. This is specifically because each spell is a new ability they bring to the table. Exactly like a knack.
None of these things should be free. Along with that is redeveloping every spell.
And adding many new spells. The two biggest overall goals were to ensure the spells were appropriately representative for the discipline. Each spellcasting discipline as a different set of capabilities and competencies.
So a lot of the hard work appeared to be in the magicians roles and I have to say that after thoroughly reviewing all of those portions I have to agree. Magic has changed.
What did the magician changes give to the game? This is a very interesting thing to consider — largely because I am just theorizing at the moment and the proof of a game is at least a month away from me. We'll put all the tables and charts you need on one side, and full color art on the other, on a fold-out cardstock screen. This includes a page booklet of pregenerated gamemaster characters and other useful material. We will add the GM screen to our online shop and product line once the KS reward copies have shipped.
Color plates added to the Players and GM's Guides.
This means one hardcover core book, or two softcover core books, or one softcover core book and two softcover sourcebooks, or three softcover sourcebooks, or whatever.
There may be additional goodies. Please look to www. Once again, thank you for your support. Alternative Payment Options If you can't or don't want to use a credit card, you can pledge through our online shop.
The products listed in the linked shop section mirror the rewards currently available with this Kickstarter campaign. A few things to remember: Your account will be charged as soon as you place your order. Shipping costs will likely be higher than for Kickstarter pledges because of the way our on-line shop works. All pledges made via our online shop will count towards meeting stretch goals.
