Just 2 more days for Pathfinder MMO kickstarter 1 Year, 7 Months ago  
I know there have been several members here donating for the first Kickstarter - the MMO demo. This is now the second one.

What is it about?

They want to bring forward the launch by 1 year

What do you get?

The primary goal is early start - you can be among the first to play

But there are lots of other bits - like a pdf bundle at the $100 level worth a lot more, free miniatures, etc.

And if you already take part - or in case you want to take part now - please give me a vote for the land rush

You find me as Thod's Friends - PFS UK

And yes - I probably can arrange some shield mates with my guild if you want.

I gave for the first kickstarter because i was very interested in an mmo in Golarion.

I've read what they want to do with it in the last few months and the game they want to do doesn't interest me anymore. Thats not the kind of MMo i want to play.

I will not give more for that reason.

It is interesting to follow what they are doing and how it seems to polarize opinions. I'm still very interested but I understand if some people rather step back as it isn't what they are looking for.

Also the Kickstarter is a great example to learn from if someone ever wants to do his own one. They have tried a few novel ideas - but some had the opposite effect or as I said above - polarized people and while getting some on board detracted others.

And we even don't know yet if it will fund as they are at 82% and time is running out. So even with a company as huge as Paizo in the background (yes - I know it is Goblinworks but they really have Paizo to push it) it isn't guaranteed to reach $1 million.

There is still the possibility it peters out at $900-950K.

Oh - and one last bit - one of the high end options which allows to have a table-top game with a famous game designer has DwarvenForge in the picture to advertise a gorgeous game :) I had to smile when I saw that.

I am curious what direction they are taking the game that has turned you off to it? I am not yet a backer but am thinking about it...

No problem - I still have all shield-mates left. I wanted to preferably keep them for DF customers or PFS Players.

If you don't mind - I'm still keen on a few more votes for the land rush. My hope is one day to build a trading station named Thod's Bazaar.

Voted!

How do shiledmates work? Who gets them to hand out and what happens when you do?


Thanks!

GW had a brilliant idea - that parly backfired.

Early on they introduced 'Daily Deals' - small vanity items that you appeared each day. The idea was - early backers get one each day. And to have people pledge early they decided your daily items would start on the first day you backed.

It gave something new each day. Some reason to go and read what's happening for the Kickstarter and be involved.

Now with not much time left - and a scramble for lots of new backers - there are many people who also want to have these items but feel left out. It has caused a lot of negative messages on various boards. Some nice extra for early backers has now become something that people wanting to pledge now can't get - and some of these are very vocal.

To head of some of this they introduced the shield mate. You can 'hook up' with another backer who pledged early and you will get the same daily deals as this backer. It has taken out some sting of the discussion and you have multiple people advertising that they offer shield mates to keep others from feeling left out.

Yep - I'm having several shield mates to offer but preferred to give them to someone here first as advertise them to strangers on other boards.

I think at some stage we need to 'hook up' aka exchange e-mail for the account to get registered. But right now the most important part is - I keep a shield mate reserved for you.

Thanks for the explanation Thod.

KS has gone up ~$7,000 in the last 2 hours...if they can keep that pace up the KS may just make it to funding level!

Hey Harneloot,

As i understand it, the world will be mostly PVP in the sense there will be few zones where players wont be able to attack anyone they want. That is womething i hate in MMOs. I only play for the coop experience.

That is moslty why i left the band wagon.

I think what GW tries is much more nuanced as free PVP. For such a world to work PVP is a necessary evil. And GW is fully aware of it and tries to place a framework into place that griefers won't get far.

Will it work?

We won't know. Your concern is valid and I think this has cost them a lot of participation.

Will GW (and the players in the game) succeed to keep it in check? We won't know until the game is on for a while. There are positive signs with the majority of guilds so far looking out to help players, with lots of non-core MMO players starting.

I'm optimistic and will report back here once it is running. But this is another reason I upped to guild to ensure I get at least some friendly people in close by. You don't want to be completely on your own.

I pledged pretty much my last $100 for all the PDF's and minis. I care zero about the online gaming. I've never done any online RPG. I love the face-to-face RPG experience and some of my best friendships started at a gaming table. You will NEVER in another 100 years be able to duplicate a table-top role-playing epic adventure experience. *Monkplayer steps down from his "soap-box" speech*
