With the Pip System Kickstarter less than one week away on March 7, 2017, we thought we’d give you a few details on how it will be structured. The initial funding goal to cover the creation of the new Pip System Corebook, as well as the conversions of Mermaid Adventures and Infestation, An RPG of Bugs and Heroes to the new unified system, is $7,000, paying for all the writing and art for the project.
The tiers for the Pip System Kickstarter are pretty simple, actually. It is $15 per PDF you’d like to pick up. If you just want the Pip System Corebook, then that’s $15. If you want the Pip System Corebook and Mermaid Adventures, that’s $30. Told you it was easy! As we unlock stretch goals, new tiers will be added, again in $15 increments.
Now, I know what you’re asking. “What if I want a print copy?” Well, that’s just as easy. Just pledge your $15 for the book you want and you’ll automatically receive a download code for the PDF through DriveThruRPG, which will also have the ability to purchase the print book in whatever version you’d like (softcover or hardcover) for the print cost + shipping. The first two tiers are shown here so you can see what’s coming!
In addition to whatever books you pledge for, all backers will be getting a collection of four Pip System adventures for free! It’s our way of saying, “Thanks and you rock!”
We have a new thing in this kickstarter, called Tier Guardians! In addition to the awesome rewards backers can acquire, there is a creature guarding an unlockable prize hidden behind each tier. For each Guardian defeated, Third Eye Games will add one new adventure for the Pip System to the Pip Adventure Collection. Here’s an example of one of the tier guardians now!
Like with others, the Pip System Corebook Kickstarter has plenty of Stretch Goals to look forward to. Here’s a look at what the structure is like:
- $11,000 – A Kid’s Guide to Monster Hunting
- $15,000 – Low Life: The Rise of the Lowly
- $19,000 – Super Sentai
- $23,000 – Killing Earth
- $27,000 – Wild World
- $31,000 – Time Tripping
- $35,000 – Atlantis and the Darklands
We have more Stretch Goals planned as well, but you’ll have to help us reach them to find out what they are!
See you next week!
