    Actually, I'm following the updates:
    I'm sure they can be persuaded to replace "you" by someone we decide on. Not that I wouldn't want to have an in-game a statue that looks like DarkUnderlord. ;)

    Item and NPC combo is also nice.

    The kickstarter tiers are cumulative at this level so you don't have to pay $2500 for a an 'item and NPC' combination, as the $1500 NPC tier includes the item. Likewise the $2500 statue tier includes both an item and a NPC.

    DarkUnderlord, I would like to withdraw from the $50, $20 and $10 Torment raffles. You can give my digital copy to someone else, as well.

    The Mission should be to get the Codex troll into as many games as possible.

    Isn't the actual amount that will be transfered to InXile less than $5000 by about $200? $4800, which will be cut down again when InXile receives it, though that last part shouldn't be of concern to us.

    Someday a developer will realise that putting in backer trash content in their game is a shitty idea.

    You want me to shell out all of the remaining $200 even after all I've done to raise awareness for this?

    Talk about being ungrateful. Ingrate punks.

    I don't know, did we agree to their terms and conditions?

    You must accept the terms and conditions below to continue:

    inXile entertainment, Inc.

    Torment: Tides of Numenera Supporter Agreement

    The following constitutes the agreement between You and inXile entertainment, Inc. in connection with your donation to the development and production of Torment: Tides of Numenera. By backing this project, You agree to the following term and conditions:

    1. Donations. Payments made to inXile entertainment, Inc. to back this project are strictly donations and are not consideration for any service or product. Donations will be used by inXile entertainment, Inc. for various aspects of the development and production of Torment: Tides of Numenera (the “Game”) at their sole discretion. inXile entertainment will accept donations immediately upon receipt; there is no minimum aggregate goal for funding. A donation cannot be cancelled or returned once it has been completed, whether or not inXile entertainment completes the Game or fulfills the specified reward. Donations are not tax-deductible. inXile entertainment may cancel or refund a donation at any time for any reason, and if they do so, are not required to fulfill the corresponding reward.

    2. Rewards. inXile entertainment is offering rewards for different pledge amounts. The list of reward tiers can be found here: Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter Project. The estimated delivery date listed for each reward is not a promise to fulfill by that date, but is merely an estimate of when inXile entertainment hopes to fulfill by. inXile entertainment agrees to make a good faith attempt to fulfill each reward by its estimated delivery date. However, You understand that inXile entertainment cannot assure you that the rewards (including the Game) will be completed or shipped when estimated.

    For some rewards, the inXile entertainment may need further information from Supporters, such as a mailing address or t-shirt size, to enable inXile entertainment to deliver the rewards. To receive the reward, Supporters agree to provide the requested information to inXile entertainment.

    3. No Obligation. inXile entertainment will use its commercially reasonable efforts to develop and produce the Game, and will apply all donations to the development and production of the Game and the other rewards. However, circumstances outside of inXile entertainment’ control may make it impossible for inXile entertainment to complete production of the Game or other rewards. inXile entertainment is under no obligation to complete the Game, or in the event completion is impossible, return any of the donations it has received. inXile entertainment does not currently have a firm date for release of the Game[, but we expect to post updates on a regular basis].

    After fees we raised $5,027.20. The ??? option to enter your own amount said some crap about it having to come after another pledge, hence the two separate amounts. Not sure if that's what inXile actually meant or if they meant you should total them in the one but anyway, they have the dosh.

    There was no area to enter a note or anything (unless I missed that, due to PayPal's notoriously shoddy interface). I'll do a news item later - currently trying to sort our old manual payments for the old campaigns and track down everyone who's supposed to have ad-free and hasn't gotten it yet.

    TBH these terms and conditions are some of the worst EULA-style stuff I've ever seen. Technically Brian Fargo could run away with all these money and present this to counter any claims. :lol:

    The hope of overcoming Decline(TM) has made us all really trusting people. ;)
