Upped pledge by $8 with the B.I.B badge.

I spent a lot more on this than I should, the $8 is like nothing in comparison.

It would be nice to have Josh do an update (or portion of one) on this topic.  I stumbled on this in the comment section of FIG.  Giving a little publicity to this initiative could go a long way towards getting some additional $8 additions and fully explaining the initiative from Obsidian's perspective.  Maybe they have and I missed it.

I have pledged my loyalty to the crew!  :skull:

 

Hunt a God.  Save your soul.  

 

Nah.  I'm going to join up with a band of pirates and let god-hunting be someone else's problem.   :p

The fact that getting a forum badge is completely divorced from financing the pirate crew is a source of confusion to me. If it was one and the same would that not be a stronger initiative?

That could very well be. It was not my decision. In fact at first I did try to combine these two projects.

 

In the end I guess the aim is to maximize the overall donations for Obsidian. Not everyone who likes the badge would also like to participate on crowd funding the pirate crew and vice versa.

 

But it certainly would have been possible that combining the two ideas would have had a stronger impact, I agree.

^I tried bringing it up several times but no response. Nothing on the monthly subscription thing either (I mean, we could easily pay for the Pirate Crew if we had a couple of more months on us to make the payment, I'm in a safe position with my job so I could easily pay $200 a month. And if others helped too we could have paid it by June-July. But no response).

Oh that! I got news on a part of this! Sorry I forgot to mention it.

 

The crowd funding of the pirate crew will NOT end by the end of the Fig campaign. I'm really sorry I forgot to mention this lol.

 

There is no set deadline yet until which we need to have reached the $5000. I will ask Aarik on a deadline, but he already told me

that the deadline for the crowd funding of the pirate crew is NOT the deadline of the Fig campaign!

 

Likewise, I will inquire if you will be able to purchase the BIB badge through the backer portal after the Fig campaign has ended.

 

Be assured Obsidian would very much like our pirate crew to make it into the game!

Awesome! Add it into the FAQ. We probably have some sort of deadline (if it's aimed to ship Q1 2018, I'm somewhat expecting Q3-Q4 but we'll see about that at a later stage)

​Have we started discussing the different/various positions of the pirates? E.g. Captain, Navigator etc.

We should discuss that in the other thread. This thread should be about the BIB badge. ;)

Cool, I don't mind pledging a tad more at a later stage.
