One of my old gaming pals, Aaron Acevedo, contacted me as soon as he heard about my first 12 for ’12 Kickstarter drive. As he says, he’s “a huge BNW fanboy,” and he volunteered to chip in something awesome for my readers. As of this weekend, I’ve commissioned from him a full-color, 11″ x 17″ map of Crescent City, the main setting for Brave New World. We never managed to get one of these produced for the RPG, so it’s a real thrill to get one made for the novels.
At the moment, our drive stands at over $5,700, or 190% of the original goal! I’m confident we’ll make it to the $8k we need to get the second book unlocked, but I want to do everything I can to make sure we get to that $15k goal and unlock all three books.
To that end, I’m planning on adding Aaron’s map as a new stretch goal. If we reach $10k, I’ll send a free electronic copy of the map to every single backer of this project!
In addition to that, I’ve been writing up all sorts of promotional bits for various blogs. You should see a lot of coverage of 12 for ’12 hitting the web this week. If you can help out with boosting this signal in any way, don’t be shy! And if you want to help promote it in other ways, I’m open to any and all ideas.
Thanks again for your support! As a reward, here’s an image from the original BNW game of Superior, the most powerful hero in the world. Even so, he needs your help so his story can be told!
