Minor correction to the update I just sent out. I mentioned the maps and atlases were available for the $30 dollars and above levels, but of course those with the Early Bird Special ($25) can get them too.  (Read More)

Some Last Minute Add-Ons!

March 2nd - via:
A few backers have asked about possible add-ons, so I've created some new options. These are things you don't change your reward level for, you just increase the pledge amount. Later, a survey will ask you about your add-ons. Generous GM Plus (+$15):... (Read More)
