            I will definitely support this; at the moment, I'm trying to decide which level. Quite frankly, I find the reward levels a little bit confusing. Why do you automatically get a printed copy at the $100, $150 and $151 levels, but you have to add $20 to get a printed copy at the $120 and $160 levels?

            Also, it seems like the $60 reward is an incentive to keep one's contribution lower than it otherwise might be … Just sayin'. ;-)

                  I'm just having a really hard time deciding between the $65 + $20 level and the $100 level … because I'm really interested in both the NPC placement and Dan Houser's autograph! :-)

                        Oh BOY!
                        Oh GIRL!
                        OH EVERYONE!
                        We've had this going for about three days and we're nearly half way to our goal of getting Stark City into your hot little ICONS-Loving Hands!
                        You might notice above we're giving away free stuff above! Well, the free stuff train continues at the $1000.00 mark! We're going to release Dr. Chimp's stats and background, as well as a brief description of his turf -- AND we're gonna be editing the first release to add some flavor text from Laughing Boy's turf as well!

                        So, check out our Kickstarter, donate, and get everyone some free stuff!

                        Once we release Doc Chimp, that leaves Pinball and Komodo....Pinball gets released at $2000.00 and Komodo once we're fully funded!
                        Imagine it, if were going to be GIVING AWAY this top-quality pdf product for MEETING goals -- can you possibly imagine the KILLER stuff we're going to release for STRETCH GOALS? Don't. Don't do that to yourself. You might pass out, and we want you awake for the second goal being met.

                        Heartfelt thanks to EVERYONE WHO'S contributed so far to make this project a reality, and stay tuned!

                        The Stark City Production Team

                        So, the horn sounds, and die-hards come from the woodwork! Could it be for free things?! Could it be for the cause of an awesome project getting funded!? Well,

                          So, the horn sounds, and die-hards come from the woodwork! Could it be for free things?! Could it be for the cause of an awesome project getting funded!? Well, all I know is that Stark City's Kickstarter breezed past the $1000.00 mark right after my announcement about MORE goodies!

                          As promised, there will be a free pdf of Doc Chimp coming out in the very near future! Wow! Now, that means we've got a bit of a hop to the next goal -- $2000.00 -- but for now, enjoy the spoils of people kicking in to get you free things, folks.

                          Here's the Kickstarter, and HERE is Laughing Boy -- Be sure to stick around for the Edited Version with NEW goodies inside Laughing Boy's pdf. I'll make the announcement here and elsewhere once the pdf for Doc Chimp is finished!

                          Thanks,
                          The Stark City Production Team

                            http://www.rpgnow.com/product/104621/Stark-City%3A-Hero-Turf-Profile-2

                            Bear in mind, we are going to release another one of these free peeks at the $2000.00 mark, our next character is Pinball -- and we'll get a peek at the Silver District!

                                Stark City Update

                                As we've passed the 2k mark and are chugging towards the goal we've started thinking about Stretch Goals.

                                The latest update lists several of the adventures we're developing as unlockables once we pass the funding goal.

                                While we are feeling good about our chances, we're not there yet. If you're a fan of ICONS who wants to see the system get a first class setting (and Kenson-penned Setting Rules) - please consider becoming a backer.

                                You can check out the latest update here:

The most creative character at the table / best roleplayer gets a limited edition Stark City shot glass (to celebrate both Mike and I's penchant for drinking on the BAMF-Cast occasionally, and to remind you that ICONS is definitely a 'whiskey and pretzels' type game.)

There will be character generation at the table, with an added extra: I'll be drawing your characters for you at the Con!

                                    We've got a little over two weeks left on the Kickstarter for Stark City. Now's a great time to jump onboard
