Its always awesome to see authors supporting other authors' works. Did you pledge at one of the levels where you are turned into a character in the book? Will we see a T.E.G.punk?!

Scott, as you well know, Ted doesn't need to be "augmented" in any way to be a punk. He's very much there. :twisted:

Sadly, I'm more Punkass than Cyberpunk.

I do love me some Punktown, though.

...and if we get to the stretch goals I just posted, we'll get to see a bit of both maybe! Check 'em out and spread the news!

Just went for the PDF. Almost went for the book but the extra 10$ for the shipping to Canada just pushed it over the edge for my current budget.
Still, I hope my 10$ will help make this a reality.

Well done Tom! I would pledge but, you know, starving artist and all.

I am slightly ashamed but I've had to lower my pledge, I just cannot afford the $85 I initially pledged.

I'm still backing though, just at a lower level ($50)

Still very much looking forward to this, after the initial mention of this I sought out Jeffery Thomas's Punktown works, they're some of the best weird fiction I've read in quite a while!

Hope I'm not letting the side down too much :)

I am looking forward to this, but with xmas coming up as well as spending a lot on Guide to Glorantha I only had sufficient funds to really go for something basic. Secondly, unless it's a very high production standard hardback, corebook or the like, I tend on reply on pdfs rather than hardcopy these days.

Along with the point that the stretch goals were a little late arriving, there wasn't much incentive to increase my pledge to something more than the cost of the PDF I would normally want to buy for a supplement ($15).

That said, I am really pleased they got funded, and I'm really looking forward to it. If it's really good, and it reaches wider publication I may buy a hardcopy later.

.......and I've just had a project update come through to thank people for sticking it out at the $75 dollar level (which was my previous pledge plus overseas shipping).

Now I feel awful :(

Ack! I wasn't trying to shame or upset anyone...just encourage bravery. I can easily see why people would back off it they didn't feel they were getting anything more than a book. I'm going to do my utmost to reward those who can stick it out. :)

And as long-time MRP pal, backer, and supporter of past projects, Jason Williams pointed out:

Tom, I have no doubt that you will do your best to make it happen.
Your least expensive option for the $75+ backers is to still include a CD with PDF's of MRP's other products. That alone would make it worthwhile to stay at the $75 minimum level to receive that CD.

‎As Jeffrey Thomas' Lovecraftian CyberNoir world of Punktown is now officially an RPG, the next goal is to make it the setting for a new anthology, to be edited by Jeffrey and "I own 2012, bitches" editorial rock star Brian Sammons (Yoggie's own Cthulhudude). 43 hours left to rebirth a colony outpost that is now a game into a brand new book of Punktown fiction by a variety of today's top dark fiction authors.

Now if just some of those books I did in 2012 actually come out in 2013... Still, this Punktown book is sure to come out, but please continue to support it and let's get the most punk out of this town that we can get. If you want a new setting for Call of Cthulhu, something as far from the "same old, same old" as you can get, well that's Punktown, baby.

Tom, any chances of getting the Keeper screen out? Not the cardboard but the PDF, then we can just print it and paste it on carboard. What say you?

At this point, Randall, I'm looking to do a smaller screen with lighter card stock, and include the data disc...but to make sure, keep spreading the word...at $13K plus, the costs for that should be covered.

And just in case anyone else been on the fence about the Kickstarter MRP is running, check this latest update:

Tom, I've noticed something on the kickstarter page which mentioned a collection of Jeffery Thomas tales called "Ghosts of Punktown" but I can't find this anywhere online.....

Do you know something that Google doesn't? :)

In an interview with Thomas, he mentions Ghosts of Punktown.

On the publishing front, another collection of my Punktown short stories, Ghosts of Punktown, shouldn’t be very far off.
