Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves
We have sown the wind, and now we are truly reaping the whirlwind!
Since we announced our second Kickstarter, we've raised over $300,000. That's an amazing and humbling feat, and it's thanks to your support that we've reached this milestone. Kickstarter reports that projects that reach 30% of their funding have a 90% chance of succeeding, so we are extremely happy to have passed that 30% mark.
We also announced the Emerald Spire Superdungeon, plus Flip-Mat Multi-Packs, and bonus Pathfinder Battles Miniatures, adding a lot of Pathfinder tabletop RPG love to our MMO Kickstarter.
Loot and Threading
As we've discussed previously, characters in Pathfinder Online will come into conflict in a wide variety of situations, from assassinations to resource skirmishes to all-out war. By the end of such a conflict, someone is probably going to be taking a dirt nap, at which point there is the chance for ill-gotten (or fairly gotten) goods. Item loss through looting gives us an extra incentive for players to engage in conflict, an extra churn in the economy, and creates tension.
What does "Threaded" mean?
Each character has a certain number of "threads of fate" they can use to tie their equipment to them, thanks to the rather unusual relationship the characters have with the goddess Pharasma—the same relationship that causes them to keep coming back from the dead.
