    This newly introduced community tier and the add-ons stuff and the fact that people seem reluctant to donate if they don't get a copy of the game just gave me an idea to boost the Codex fundraiser.
    Currently there's a $60 add-on which gives you 3 copies of the game, we should see with Obsidian if they're willing to extend this add-on for high-end tiers to unlimited copies at $20 a piece.

    For example, if the Codex raises $6000, that's the $5000 tier plus 50 extra copies.

    It will not be enough to reward every donator, but it will significantly reduce the minimum pledge at which you get a copy ($50, $40, $30 ??).

    Crooked Bee, you go girl, do your magic !

    Some more fundrasing ideas:

    1) All backers get a special title:

    And would look similar to this:

    [​IMG]

    2) A special forum where only people who donate 25$ or more can vote/comment on the Codex Party.

    Just some ideas. I don't know how much free time you have or how difficult that would be to set up though.

    You are a Race Traitor, what kind of tag do you want?

    And DU could use custom tags to raise money for the server. Hey, wait a minute...

    I'm guessing DU will work out some special deal with a certain amount of boxed copies(?), digital copies, goodies, etc. that the highest donors will get. Although since he doesn't give much of a shit, things don't seem that clear.

    I'm waiting to hear how many digital copies are available for the codex (as I haven't donated to the KS yet) and would rather do it through the codex if it nabs me a copy of the game.

    Well, if donating 250$ would entail at least digital collector's version (and all else comes with it by kickstarter) and well as a troll - I'm on it, as soon as I'll be able to scrape enough money (by 15th, as soon as I'll get my salary).
    Otherwise I'll just pledge 110 and donate like 50$. Personal troll is cool, but my funds are not unlimited by any means :(.

    So what you're saying is that my social status on the Codex is now contingent on how much money I spend? Screw you, bourgeoisie pigs!

    You can donate $0.01 and still get the tag.

    I'd prefer if he spend time working on the game so it doesn't have shitty rtwp combat (that'd be new), bugs, glitches, broken camera (for my buddy racofer-kun) and other games that are present in every (or almost every) Obsidian game than some fucking drawings.
