Reward Tiers Part 1
As part of the “Pardon Our Delay Kickstarter World Tour” here’s the first in a series of posts that draws directly from our Kickstarter project. This post covers all the reward tiers that are less than $300. Each tier has a “MJ Notes” which explains some of my thinking for the tier. BTW, one of the things to keep in mind is that these tiers can be added to as our Kickstarter progresses. :)
Again, sorry for the delay but since we are now approved it’s safe to say we are going to launch the first week in April.
Update: I made a few corrections to this list based on feedback and typos. Thanks to all those that helped!
$5 No max REALM BUILDER
Woot! Thanks for the help. We really appreciate it! As a backer of Camelot Unchained, you get ACCESS TO OUR BACKERS ONLY GENERAL FORUMS, AN OFFICIAL THANK YOU from all of us at CSE, and our newsletter.
MJ Notes: This is the typical base Kickstarter reward tier where people who just want to pledge a few bucks.
MJ Notes: This is the first tier that gets a digital copy of the game. I thought that adding 5 Founder’s Points for anyone who bought/buys March on Oz was a nice little bonus. The Founder’s Exchange is where our players will redeem their Founder’s Points. The “Living” Digital Manual is simply our continually updated manual but with a few twists which we’ll talk about down the road. As the guys on MMORPG/subreddit have noted, we have put in a lot of the suggestions for vanity-style items. Like many other tiers in our or other people’s Kickstarters, there are tiers that are available in limited amounts for a variety of reasons.
MJ Notes: Once the $25 tier sells out, it is replaced with this tier. Unlike some other tiers where the “early adopter” type of tier is replaced by a more expensive one with fewer benefits, this tier is slightly better than the $25 one. This tier comes with a special app that we will build based on feedback from our backers and other exclusive items.
MJ Notes: This is the first of our true early adopter tiers. As you can see, it comes with a lot of upgrades from the $30 tier including extra sub time, early beta access, etc. The early adopter tiers are intended as rewards to the folks who have been following our progress closely and they can snag them quickly. I didn’t want to have too few of them either so the total number (5K) here can change before we launch. Some of these rewards also came from my chats on the various forums.
MJ Notes: As you can see, this tier isn’t quite as good as the tier before it but it’s still quite lush.
MJ Notes: This tier introduces the starter weapon/armor that all backers get as part of their rewards. These items will be salvageable by crafters so that our backers can have some of the cosmetic perks that come with the items can be used on other items. This is also the first tier that comes with a discount on the backer’s sub rate.
MJ Notes: Another early adopter tier and this is one of my favorites. I really wanted to make our digital CE special for our backers. As many of our potential backers know, suggestions for the dyes are another one of the many items that came from the forums. With Alpha access, lots of included items and 55 FPs, I think this tier will be very popular. One of the reasons this tier is limited (and non-repeatable) is that it comes with alpha access and we need to limit alpha access.
MJ Notes: The non-early adopter version. Still quite good but no alpha access.
MJ Notes: This is our first “2 for 1” tier. It offers the same benefits as buying the same twin but with extra time and 10 additional FPs.
MJ Notes: This is essentially an upgraded CE edition but with a lot of additional FPs and alpha access. It is a very limited item because of the alpha access.
MJ Notes: This is easily the most controversial of all tiers because of its Internal Testing status. I cannot stress enough how I hope that we will not sell this tier out and that even if we do, it won’t be repeated because of my fear that we will have some people who will buy this access just to play and not to test. That is why this tier is limited to 500 and why I’ve tried to discourage people from signing up for it.
MJ Notes: Another 2 for 1 tier.
MJ Notes: This the first tier that comes with a 3-year subscription that renews at $1 per year after that. The folks at Kickstarter are concerned with the legal ramifications of offering a lifetime subscription so this way we address their concerns. They have been great with us and I really understand where they are coming from.
MJ Notes: This is the first of our physical tiers. As you can see it comes with the useful stuff but lots of FPs and lots of other extras. As per above, keep in mind that depending on things go with the funding, we’ll be able to add even more to these tiers through the use of Founder’s Points.
