Dreams of Aerie

Postby Ambreville » Mon May 15, 2017 8:27 pm

Hi all. Calidar's 3rd Kickstarter is coming soon - June 14th, ending July 13th. Here is the link to the preview page. Comments are welcome. Cheers!

Edit -- If you've missed it, I've put down some ideas on my blog about the rationale behind the way this Kickstarter is set up. There is one change I had to implement, which was unexpected. In the blog I spoke of offering discounts to previous titles. It turned out that's a no-no with Kickstarter rules. The discounts are therefore not brought up on the Kickstarter page, but it's my attention to offer them to Calidar backers anyway *after* the Kickstarter session is officially complete. Look here.

Did you think by chance about some kind of reward for the backers of the previous project that for a printing mistake didn't appear on the "Honour Roll"?

I had announced that the names of CC1's backers would be added to this new book's Honor Roll. That's still the plan. I had also offered a replacement for CC1 at cost. I can't realistically afford to replace these books altogether.

The KS page preview looks clear to me. Looking also forward to the discount section when more information will be available :)

Thanks!! As I wrote in the first post, I had to withhold the information on the discounts from the KS page because they would be against KS rules. The only option is to e-mail the discounts to the backers after the Kickstarter ends. I did include the PDFs in the add-on. Those already show a small discount.

Hey gang, good news -- I've updated the pledges to include discount coupons for older printed titles. These start right at the Airman pledge level, making this a great deal. Turned out discounts were okay with Kickstarter as long as core rewards are for a new project. Here's how this works:

The Standard Discount Package offers backers up to Captain pledge level four discount coupons with a total value up to $12. Two are worth $4 each, redeemable when purchasing the printed titles CAL1 "In Stranger Skies" and CC1 "Beyond the Skies." The other two are worth $2 each, redeemable when purchasing CST1 "Under the Great Vault" and CST2 "Skies of Fury."

The Premium Discount Package offers backers at Admiral pledge level four discount coupons with a total value up to $24 (two worth $8 each and two worth $4 each respectively, as explained above).

These discount coupons will be e-mailed to you soon after the Kickstarter campaign ends. You can redeem any or all of your coupons as you order the printed versions of these books, if and when you wish. Discount coupons are valid up to 6 months after their delivery (one coupon per book, as designated above.) Printed versions of these books include the corresponding PDF documents free of charge.

PDF files can otherwise be purchased directly from the Add-Ons section (without using a discount) if you're not interested in the printed books.

Cross-posted from Facebook:

As it turned out, to be ready for the upcoming convention in TX, I had to convert all of "Dreams of Aerie's" system-neutral stats listed in the Appendix to D&D BECMI (NPCs, monsters, streamlined rosters, and pre-gens.) It actually did not take a huge amount of time. I won't have to do this mental gymnastic while running the adventure next week. Now that this is done, I'll save this information in various places for anyone who wants it . The PDF files will be uploaded after the Kickstarter campaign ends, here, on my blog, and on Calidar's Facebook chat group. Since these aren't listed as products for sale, the issue of copyright and such should not be a problem. A number of you readily use D&D BECMI. Switching these stats to others versions of D&D should be a no-brainer (if anyone wants to modify these files and upload their own conversions, by all means, they'll be included.) Cheers!

Last call! I'll be submitting the Kickstarter campaign for final approval within the next day or two. This is your last chance to peruse the preview page and jump in with comments.

MODERATOR NOTE (by Big Mac): I have split the discussion about the IMG tag into a Kippin' Griffon topic called How does the IMG tag work? as it is forum business, rather than a Calder discussion and I want the moderator team to be able to find that discussion.

See you all at 09:00 US Central Time this morning when the Kickstarter campaign launches for Calidar "Dreams of Aerie." Search for this title on Kickstarter's home page. I'll be back as soon as possible when the campaign launches, with the correct link. The present one,for the preview page, will cease to work when the campaign launches. You can also have a peek at the project preview posted on EnWorld, which reveals an extra poster map showing an "exploded view" of the aeries' upper floors on a night display of the main deck. Until the curtains open, sit tight and enjoy the popcorn. :mrgreen:

I can't wait to get started on the layout for this one! After CST2's dual-adventures, I think I have it down. ;)

I'm also really excited about DTRPG's map sheets. So much potential here.

Yeah, that's all good news. I really hope DTRPG comes through with their plan to offer larger poster maps, beyond the 12X17 sheets.
