Lucas is one of the bards who does art and stuff for the Hand. He's a jack of all trades who works primarily with character concepts and fantasy related illustrations. Although he has the Jack of all Trades class feature, he enjoys GMing much more than playing, also he likes to make little power gamers cry for their mommas.
He's trying to get off the social media grid, but he can still be found on Instagram or on Artstation. The first stretch goal is a two-for-one! We'll include two pages of feats that directly tie into Dark Matter's key factions, as a way for GMs to mechanically reward players that join these factions. Additionally, we'll add a full d table of trinkets also two pages to help flesh out your characters. We'll include an entire base class, complete with subclasses, in a new chapter.
This class, the Gadgeteer, is highly customizable and uniquely belongs to the Dark Matter universe. We'll include an eye-catching two page Dark Matter character sheet, complete with entries for new skills, at the end of the book. We'll include four pages of beautiful, fascinating concept art as an appendix to the book.
These illustrations showcase the development of the fascinating races and vehicles on display in Dark Matter and might provide inspiration for your campaign. Note: if we reach this stretch goal, our projected schedule for development will see one to two months of delay as our artists get cracking on those 8 full-page illustrations. If you're interested in the nitty-gritty details on what we're doing and when and I imagine you will be if you're pledged to this project , we'll break down every part of our master plan as best we can.
Every part of our schedule makes room for mistakes, setbacks, and failures; if everything goes well, we could run ahead of schedule and under budget. However, if and when setbacks occur, we'll let everyone know what's going on and where that places us. First and foremost, we optimistically expect to print between and 1, copies of Dark Matter.
We understand that a lot of consumers will be interested in digital copies over physical ones, but we'd also like to have additional copies above and beyond those required by the Kickstarter backers.
We've already invested in thousands of dollars of art for this book from our two regular artists, but there's quite a bit more to be done. Additionally, we estimate that the Monsters chapter yet to be completed will require the most amount of art in the book because of the formatting challenges with inflexible statblocks. We're self-publishing after all. This includes hiring a lawyer to look over the OGL to ensure that we're using it correctly better safe than sorry and to pat us on the head and tell us we haven't shot ourselves in the foot.
It's important to note that even if there are additional unforeseen financial shortcomings, Kickstarter is not our only source of income. Mage Hand Press has proudly been supported by Patreon, which has funded the development of Dark Matter so far. Some funding from Patreon can help to cover unexpected expenses, if needed. These include both production milestones such as finishing the production or revision of chapters as well as estimated shipment milestones.
July 17th: Kickstarter Kickoff! Why this gap? If we're falling behind on anything, or if additional art needs to be completed, hopefully this amount of time will allow us to take care of that.
Additionally, this gives us some time for playtesting to happen, for us to respond to feedback, and make adjustments accordingly.
We won't be sitting idle during this time: if we can get ahead of schedule during the Slush period and work on the Print copy, we will do so. December 15th: Print Copy Completed. It will likely take us some time to make the necessary changes to the book for a print version. January 15th: Print Run Begins.
We're estimating that printing the book will take 3 months, since we plan to print our books locally in the St. Louis area. It's worth noting that this is also a very wide estimate -- most quotes we've been given are significantly faster than this time.
However, if the need arises to work with a more distant printer, or we struggle to iron out the problems with the print copy, the actual print run may see delays. April 1st: Shipping Begins During the next few weeks, the biggest thing you can do to help this project succeed besides pledging is to help us spread the word.
We've seen firsthand the power of word-of-mouth in the past, and social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and Tumblr can kick that effect into overdrive. If everyone pledging introduces one or two people to this project, things will snowball and we'll be breaking records in no time!
So, we thought we'd do something fun and add a few more stretch goals that you can unlock for free, just by sharing Dark Matter with your friends. We'll be keeping a live tally of the amount of views, retweets, shares, and reblogs we get on Dark Matter content. Every goal we reach scores a point and every two points will unlock an new goal. Of course, we'll keep you all updated as we unlock these achievements. For achievements! Risks and challenges Dark Matter is Mage Hand Press's first print run and Kickstarter, so the biggest challenge is negotiating with printers and finalizing the print copy.
We expect some delays on this stage as well as delays on completing art for the two remaining chapters of the book , and have accordingly scheduled two months on the schedule to account for these delays. Depending on the actual delays experienced, the book could run well ahead of schedule, or experience a few months of delay. International shipping to outside the US will also likely see delays, regardless of precautions we take.
We expect that there is very little chance that, even with unexpected costs, we will be unable to produce the final book. Mage Hand Press is also funded by Patreon, and will put forward any additional funding necessary to complete the final product.
It was certainly never as popular with third-party publishers as d20 itself. There'd been some hope early on that it might become the gaming system for the entire industry, but that hope was never fulfilled.
Meanwhile, by d20 itself had faded too, and Wizards was looking to what was next. In the end, resources were pulled to work on those other lines, sidelining d20 Modern products that had been in process.
This sort of Darwinian survival of the fittest is a hard rule of publishing — and the reason why TSR and Wizards have never had a tremendously long-lived alternate roleplaying line, except perhaps for Marvel Super Heroes — , which had a strong license to keep it going. Wizards also published a "Fast-Play" version of the game in Dragon Annual 4 , then reprinted it in the rulebook.
That was it … until the advent of d20 Modern. Meanwhile, much of the d20 Modern conversion was already present in Collins' "Shades of Gray", including all of the advanced and prestige classes. Expanding the d20 Modern System. Its main contributions are in the form of character options, including: new occupations, new feats, new cryptozoologic races, and the usual set of new classes.
A fourth prestige class, the xenoengineer, was dropped after its appearance in "Shades of Gray". This was Wizards' second major setting for the modern world, following Urban Arcana, but their approaches were very different.
The most interesting expansion is probably in the organizations section, which develops the setting's factions using the organizational design of the d20 Modern game.
