Dark Matter is Fully Funded!

As of today, with two whole weeks left in the campaign, Dark Matter officially funded. Thank you so much to everyone who supported this project and thank you to everyone who spread the word about it. We have a long way to go, but this is a colossal milestone!

Stretch Goals

Right on the horizon are the stretch goals, which are easily achievable and add really awesome stuff to the book.

  1. Woohoo! Congatulations!

    I have a question about the stretch goals: one goal is a char sheet pdf, does that mean a special Dark Matter char sheet will not be included in the book otherwise? Because with the new skills and such it really seems like a must.

    1. Default Character Sheets have plenty of extra space on-which to write whatever notes one needs. I suspect that a PDF will be made for the DrkMtr specific character sheets, but including the sheets in the physical book would require some extra funds.

      Given the fact that it's rather easy to simply write in extra notes it seems like adding the new sheets to the physical book would be lower in priority hence it being a stretch goal rather than included in the base project.
      I myself mostly use notebook paper and google docs for my character sheets, as I tend to find the default character sheets to either be wasteful or restrictive, and even when I use a character sheet I invariably end up with extra sheets of notes.

    2. I intend to both print the character sheet (which has the new skills and a snazzy look) in an appendix at the end of the book and provide the PDF of it as well. Jury's out if it will be form-fillable, though.

  2. I have to say, I'm excited for a coffee cantrip. lol
