J.M. Perkins has a great idea for Pathfinder and other RPGs. This isn’t a sourcebook that brings in even more powers. This is a sourcebook, if published, that will look at the weakest class in the game.
The Kickstarter asks for $2,500. It’s going to hit that goal so it’s a good time to eye the pledge level that suits you. There’s 24 days on the clock, as this post goes live, and there’s already $1,800 or so in the pot.
The smallest pledge level is $15 and that gets you a digital edition of the book and your name in the supporters’ section. The next most popular pledge is up at $50 which brings in the bonus digital rewards and the phyiscal copy of the book.
Perkins’ has lined up Misfit Studios as publisher. That’s a reassurance as it makes me more comfortable that this won’t be a Kickstarter that struggles to deliver the paper copies.
I think the proposed table of content does a pretty good job of describing the book. There’s more details on the Kickstarter page but here’s a summary.
