    Tags: Solasta: Crown of the Magister; Tactical Adventures

    The Solasta: Crown of the Magister Kickstarter campaign is over and Tactical Adventures have said they aren't accepting any late pledges via PayPal. However, they've decided to make a special exception for the Codex. DarkUnderlord is finally off his 20 day long bender on illicit stimulants from the Australian outback, so the fundraiser can begin now. Here's what we're shooting for:

    $100 - Name in Monument
    $130 - Character Creation Name Pool
    $250 - Name an NPC
    $300 - Write a Scroll
    $500 - Name a Landmark
    $750 - NPC Face Creation
    $1000 - Co-Design a Magic Item (plus a visit to Tactical Adventures HQ in Paris)​

    Of course, your donation will also grant you what you would have gotten for pledging the same amount to the Kickstarter - though only for tiers that were still available when the campaign ended. That means:

    $28 - Digital Game (includes one Kickstarter-exclusive item)
    $40 - Digital Game Kickstarter Edition (includes two Kickstarter-exclusive items)
    $65 - Kickstarter Edition with Rulebook PDF (includes all three Kickstarter-exclusive items)
    Plus a variety of more expensive physical tiers featuring the game's rulebook, soundtrack and/or tabletop adventure box. So if you missed the campaign or weren't able to pledge through Kickstarter, now's your chance to get in. Tell all your friends and let's see how far we can get before Disco Elysium releases and the world as we know it comes to an end.

    Definitely a good time to cash in on the goodwill generated by the avatar prank.

    Solasta, sounds familiar, I think I've read something in the news about it.
    Maybe even here on the Codex? Can't be too sure. :cool:

    The right timing is everything.


    But in all seriousness, I'm currently not in the kickstarting mood and my hype generators are running low.
    Which means, one of the next evenings, I'll be in one of these what the heck moods and throw money
    at the fundraiser anyway. I wasted more potatoes, for more questionable things.

    Is there a tier where we get some of the illicit stimulants from the Australian outback? ;)

    Isn't 5e basically a dumbed down 3e? They could just have used 3e. Or even better, just used their own system or something similar. I admit I never gave 5e much of a chance though, so it is entirely possible I am being unfair here. But if anyone has tried it and thinks it is a good system, I would appreciate a run down on why you think so.

    Any codexer who wants the game and is willing to pre-pay should have already backed the kickstarter.

    No one really cares about 3.5 anymore and/or they'd just play whatever Owlcat puts out (close enough).

    If they have also have the idea of a non-SRD wotc game in the future they're also going to need to use 5e, cause wotc sure as hell isn't going to bless anything non-5e.

    I just donated $250 to get Schlomo Shekelstein as an NPC. He'll be a highly profitable foreign merchant who financially backs the invading Orcs because they are all doctors and magic scientists.

    I certainly hope we hit $1000 so the developers have the pleasure of meeting a Codexian in person. Sadly most of my money went on the Kickstarter.

    I think this is the first news post about this game I've actually read. Thought the others were made by a spam bot or something.

    Anyway how do I know this isn't another TToN?

    Hahaha. I think you're right. What I should have said was : At least it can't be worse than Underworld Ascendant.

    I hear the Codex begging thread is a great place to farm some brofists. I'm already planning tasks for residents to perform to obtain my favour.

    Sounds fun but just 20 days? Live a little!

    Maybe you should follow his example and go on a bender too Infinitron. Imagine a maelstrom of thread mergings and splittings, forking things into "gd shit" threads for no reason, requiring Patron status to edit your posts, etc. Make people appreciate when you're sane and sober.

    I'm a well-known philantropist when it comes to bad RPGs, but I can't decide if this is another one of them. Should I donate?

    It looks somewhere between decent and mediocre, so it depends whether you want to ruin your reputation and get a fancy tag of shame.
