Because KS crashed under load they are opening it to folks that didn't pledge as well - from their KS update:
Reaper will have a post KS pledge manager website!
Update #57 Aug. 25, 2012 71 comments

Thanks to all of you that backed our project!  It was absolutely amazing!

Using our post Kickstarter Pledge Manager website (if you pledged you will get a link in you backer survey e-mail later) you can make additions and adjustments (you can't lower your pledge).

We will also post the link as an update to our Kickstarter.  It may be two weeks from now so keep checking.  We have to get and then assimilate the Kickstarter data.

You can sign up there. You can also use pay-pal too.

If you are signing up new and you don't select the Vampire or Undertaker Level you will have to pay more for options then what they were originally listed at, but they will be available to you.  If you did pledge and you didn't pledge Vampire or Undertaker or don't upgrade to one, the same applies.

More details to come later!

If this does not answer you question, please send another message to us in a day or two as we are going to sleep now!

So, a bit more time and a few more paychecks, but no new Bones being added to the pile. Sounds fair to me!

The Auld Grump

So, those of us who didn't have a chance to pledge yet... will have some option at the KS pledge levels / rewards?

Using magic for mundanity on an ubiquitous basis?  That sounds like invisible, intangible followers (or a personal lieutenant) to me.

If your universe is like the Dresden Files, it likely wouldn't be good for the boiler (in addition to the Mage's potentially water-damaged goods).

Is it too much to hope for a more ... theatrical ... release?

For those who loved Tribes...

Tribes Ascend is in open beta.

It's using a Free to Play model, with microtransactions.

It lives up to being the successor to the ultra-fast, team FPS.

Terranova, while okay (good for scifi lovers) could have been so much more awesome if the family wasn't so glossy.  I don't remember where I heard it, but here goes...

A father, suffering emotional trauma from terrible prison conditions.
A teenage boy who despises his father, and rebels against him.
A young girl, withdrawn after a long time as a ward of the state.

But... we have to have things wrap up nicely, with a rose-colored glasses family to bookend each episode.

The edge master intrigues me
It did me too.
If you think the Hidden Promise approach is the way to go, another avenue to getting both feats would be Soldier 1/Burglar 3.

I'd forgotten the -4+2 trick.  I'll use that, and build her as Martial Artist for better effect.

At this point, I'm totally cheating:
Blade Touched

I really don't feel like cheating this way, since custom-designed Specialties bring much more to use than existing specialties do to most other builds.

I've got her build as far as I'm probably going to take her.  At this point, she's a character I'd be happy to play.  (The only thing that bothers me is Lumbering.)

12  Products / Fantasy Craft / Fortune's Fool Errata Discussion on: October 12, 2011, 04:30:14 PM
Also keep in mind that not all feats are created equal. If they were, it wouldn't really be important to have more than one. Wink

The problem is, there is a big difference between a feat not being created equally and a feat being obviously and totally inferior to another.

Fortune's Fool still requires action by another player (in this case the GM) to give you what Fortunate just gives you for free and Fortune's Fool adds nothing to make up for that added disadvantage.

The thing is - if Fortune's Fool discourages the GM from spending action dice against you, without limit, that's a pretty big "soft" benefit, too. Fortunate is a great feat - one of the best chance feats - and holding every single other chance feat up to it is not really fair (to those feats, at least). If the problem with Fortune's Fool is that the player does not have absolute control of it, all the time (which is the main argument I'm hearing here), then it simply shouldn't exist at all. That sort of decision makes me sad, as it removes a whole host of play options from the table that I think are interesting but may simply not be "powerful enough" to make muster in players's eyes.

I, for one, am estatic for the errataed Fortune's Fool.  Besides being another Chance feat, it helps put an edge to a character over the GM. I'm looking forward to taking it with my Action Die exploiter, at least.

You guys rock!

If it means a little delay, and lets face it, a month or two is small compared with when the project started back in 2.0, so be it.  Especially if it means the product will be polished to a bright and sparkling shine.

Looking forward to the preview glimpses, and the PDF when it's ready.

Thanks for the responses and welcomes, everyone.  I wanted to point out that I wasn't comparing Fortunate to FFtB or LLS, which are obviously completely different, but rather Fortune's Fool, which is comparable to (and, as far as I can tell, strictly worse than) Fortunate.

My apologies for missing the additional concern in your post. Looking at Fortunate vs. Fortune's Fool I can see the concern. I have a couple questions for the gallery...

1. Who's taken Fortune's Fool so far? Of those who answer yes, who's taking it for the added benefit it provides as a Chance feat vs. its stated benefit?

As one who has built a couple of Chance Feat abusers, I have not had one where Fortune's Fool fit.
If I got to the point where I was out of other Chance Feats, it would likely have been taken for the sheer benefit as "another Chance Feat."

2. Of those of you not taking it, who would consider it if "critical failure" were swapped to "error"?


I would be more likely to take it with that change.  Yes.

Special Relativity

Seriously. Read the article. Once the peer reviews are in, this will rock the scientific community to its core. Sorry Albert.

See, I'm not sure it will.  Einstein still works for most cases.

Also, am I mistaken or were neutrinos thought to be FTL for a while?
