Heya, folks. Just one week to go, and our Kickstarter is going strong! At this rate, making our basic funding goal is all but assured – but why stop there? Let’s see if we can knock off a stretch goal or two.
Anyway, we didn’t update just to cheer ourselves on. By popular request, we’ve decided to make blank Costume Fairy Adventures character sheets available. Strictly speaking, the Quickstart Edition doesn’t include character creation rules, but we’re not surprised that some of y’all have already reverse-engineered the process – fairies are not exactly rocket science.
The character sheet is available in two versions:
Printable – With ruled lines for good, old-fashioned pen-and-paper play.
Form-Fillable – With fillable (and saveable!) fields for electronic use.
The form-fillable version is rich text enabled, if your PDF reader supports it, so you can tinker with the font size and such in the Powers and Quirks fields. Please check your PDF reader’s user guide for specific instructions.
Heya, folks. We’ve had several backers ask us in the past few days how they can help spread the word about Costume Fairy Adventures. While simply mentioning it to your friends is always avenue number one, if you’re really keen to help get the word out, here are a couple of suggestions:
Being a tabletop roleplaying game, the best way to spread the word is to play! The Quickstart Edition is perfect for quick demo games, and while there’s likely not enough time left in the Kickstarter campaign to arrange many face-to-face games before it ends, online play is totally an option. We’ve got a play-by-post game going right now on our forums; if you’re a member of any online forums with their own PbP venues, that’s a perfect way to raise visibility. In addition, as mentioned in a recent update, one of our backers is running online sessions of the demo Playset via Google Hangouts.
Another good option - and a lower commitment one than participating in an online game - is to post reviews or where-I-reads. It might seem odd to do a where-I-read of a free preview, but there’s more substance there than you might think - the Quickstart Core Rules Booklet plus the demo Playset represent a very hefty preview, with over sixty pages of material.
We’d like to thank everyone who’s enquired for their interest and support - y’all have been entirely awesome. And if you can think of any other ways to raise our profile that we haven’t taken advantage of yet, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
Heya, folks. Thanks to your requests, we decided to go ahead with the Fairy Portrait Pack Add-On for our Costume Fairy Adventures Kickstarter! Here’s a small sample of the new art we’re putting together for this Add-On.
These four images will appear in the Portrait Pack, along with eight others (12 portraits total), courtesy of the very talented Louise Leung. The Add-On will be available in both digital and physical versions, as follows:
For $5 CAD, you’ll receive twelve super-high-resolution digital portraits for all your electronic-character-sheet needs.
For $10 CAD, you’ll receive the digital files, a well as twelve large (2.5” diameter) clear-backed stickers, the perfect size and shape to stick on your physical Costume Fairy Adventures character sheets - or anywhere else that strikes your fancy!
If you’ve already pledged for a reward package that includes the Costume Sticker Set, for an additional $3 CAD you can trade in the Costume Sticker Set for the Fairy Portrait Pack. This includes both the digital files and physical stickers.
Finally, if you’re flush with cash, for $100 CAD, you’ll work with one of our artists to create a Fairy Portrait to your own personal specifications, for which you’ll receive a high-resolution digital file and a dozen stickers - on top of everything that’s included in the $10 Add-On!
We’ll be updating our Add-On list and Pledge Calculator to reflect these additions shortly. In the meantime, if you’re keen to get your hands on these portraits, you can update your pledge right away! (Don’t worry that there’s no button for it - we’ll be sending out a comprehensive survey at the end of the KS to make sure we know exactly who wants what.)
