    Updated the list of donors. PM me about any issues or corrections.

    Note: Another batch has come in while I was updating. I'll have to get to those tomorrow.

    DU might wanna go ahead and make the donation. The 10k pledges are gone, and the 5k pledges are sure to follow suit. I'm sure Fargo will work out something with us regardless though.

    In related news, the WL2 is < $50K off its target after what, 3 days now? Looking to go well over $1M in the first week.

    Yeah, some people who donated via eCheck I've ended up listing twice just because of how it was formatted (would also explain why my original total didn't match up to Taluntain's heh). I'll fix it tomorrow when I go through the list again and re-check.

    If all of the money donated this month goes toward WL2, and it gets to 10k, why not get the shrine and then donate some toward the lower tiers. Like $15 copies of the game for people that donated?

    If we could get a confirmation on this I'd be willing to withdraw my direct Kickstarter pledge and put it toward the statue thing instead. I suppose this might be too much work, though? I'm not sure.

    Alright I've made my small contribution to the Statue Initiative™. I decided to go all in for the codex instead of splitting it up into part codex + part kickstarter.

    We are already gonna get 30 game licenses, we could see who in the list doesn't need then (because bought the boxed one, like me), and see if that's enough for everybody. If not, we could exchange the physhical rewards for more licenses for everybody. :)

    Because a different person would have to make each donation, and that kind of defeats the point of grouping them together. I think it'd be better to try to work something out with BF if there are more needy donators than available copies.

    You're a true patriot, btw. Thanks for hucking in so much cash. I am genuinely excited about this.

    Ah, I didn't realize you couldn't make multiple donations at different levels. Yeah, that's too much of a pain in the ass then. I apologize for not being able to contribute to this, though. I can barely justify forking out $65 for a game that might suck, let alone never show up.

    As a wise group of long haired individuals once said: Don't stop believin'. And as other bros already said before: It's more than about a single game in this special case. It's equally about the question if there is still hope for the Genre in general (as in "is it potentially profitable to develop a RPG in the "old" fashion" for a major Publisher/Investor/Developer) as well.

    See it more as an investment into the future of RPG development. And as a special reward for your good deed in the end perhaps you even receive a game that - after a long row of disappointments - might actually not suck donkey balls :).

    Never give up hope Stabwound!

    MCA is a bro of the highest order.

    Gay fanboyism, but I wish he'd post here. If we weren't such assholes that scare off ever developer I'm sure he would.

    Did my duty.
    If I'm in the first 30, I'd like to have a digital cpy for I didn't give directly to the Kickstart (shame on me, whatever).

    Copied & pasted from the first thread about the fundraising, my idea of the Codexia location, I think it wouldn't be too self-conscious:

    Codexia: an abandoned cyclopean village full of crazy denizens drifting amongst the ruins, uttering insane sentences.
    Skyway: "Banal...Shit...Boring...Everywhere!"
    Melcar: "Cheap whores...Come on, it's payday...Oy my head."
    Prosper: "Rain! It needs glorious rain and swamps!"
    Dicksmoker: "Shut up everyone! I once more hear the tolling of a great bell! It's calling me!"
    Glyphwright: "Shells in the night! Shells in the night!"
    (...)
    A lot of unnamed NPCs: "Potato!" "Somebody must have hidden potato."

    I think it should be active for the duration of WL2 Kickstarter minus one or two days. Who knows, maybe we will make it to $10K if the word gets around NMA, DAC, ITS etc.

    Yes. I believe we'll contact Fargo to negotiate everything ASAP once we hit $5000 -- but we should definitely keep it running, because the more money we collect, the more expansive our in-game presence will be. :)
