Oh yes! We are at 85%!!! Woohooo!

 

Additionally to the latest donation from TheisEjsing we also received another batch of $333 from our mysterious very generous donator who only donates in batches of $333 which he has done now for the fourth time!

 

At this point thank you everyone again. Thank you very much for your donations! We are almost there :)

 

And a very special thank you to our mysterious donator :thumbsup:

haha, that makes sense. I didn't think my modest donation, 40$ on top of my initial donation would jump us up so many %. :D Whoever this gentleman, who is also most likely very attractive is deserves alot of praise for his/her example.

 

So even thou I got taxes coming up soon, I'll follow that example and make another donation when I get home.

Yeah, at this point I feel like the captain of the BIBs kinda has to be anonymous. ^_^

There is one last issue I would ask everyone to think about.

 

Originally I said when we get more than $5000 I would donate any surplus money to Obsidian as a "free donation".

Now, there is a problem because there is not going to be such an option.

 

So how do we make sure we stop exactly at $5000?

And what do we do if we pass that? What if we end up with $5050? Or $5250?

 

The next interesting tier would be at $5750 and I rather doubt that we will make it that far.

So what do we do with the surplus money if we get more than $5000 but less than $5750?

 

I have two ideas myself:

 

1.) I will close the funding of the BIB at $4900 and donate the missing $100 myself to make sure we get exactly $5000.

2.) Another idea is that I buy additional Add-Ons from the surplus money and we give them away in a lottery among all

our donators (except myself because I would handle the lottery).

 

Let me know what you think. I'm also open to new suggestions.

 

PS: We have reached 90% HURRAY! You are awesome! Thank you very much!!!

Rumour has it this lady or gentlemen is either also extremely bodacious or exceptionally well endowed. In fact, anonymous sources (whom I can't here disclose) confirm these rumours to be true. Praise to our wonderful benefactor :)

 

P.S. Regarding your question Fluffle, I would vote for option two. I wouldn't want you to spend more money on this than you would otherwise want. You've already done so much :).

Magrans flaming ****!

In the back of my head I was worried we wouldn't make it. But we are so close!

I wish I could spare some more, but alas, money is to tight. Such is the life of

 

On that note, I do have a question.

What will the actually crew of the Black Bastards be like?
(Sorry if this has already been stated, 25 pages is a lot to read!)

It is human nature to seek culpability in a time of tragedy. It is a sign of strength to cry out against fate, rather than to bow one’s head and succumb. Inevitably many will fault the hands upon the sword which felled Typhon, the Ordo Malleus. But the Inquisition merely performs the duty of its office. To further fear them is redundant; to hate them, heretical. Those more sensible will place responsibility with those who forced the hands of the Inquisition. With some fortune, they may foster this hatred into purpose, and further rule their own fate by coming to the Emperor’s service.

Yet ultimately, it was I who set these events into motion, with a single blow from my hammer, God Splitter.

I also vote for the second option. I probably missed it, but why cant there be a general donation option in case we pass 5000$?

Have a look at the last two pages of this thread.

 

Also:

 

 

All,

 

If you are interested in a backer portal option to pledge any amount of your choice without a reward, consider dropping a line here. Devs have their eyes on the request and are gauging demand.

Hi guys!

 

We are continually improving the Backer Portal, I don't believe we'll have a "pledge what you want" tier, but we may have something that will be to that effect.

 

And since then there was no official mention of a "pledge what you want" option.

That is up to Obsidian ;)

Feel free to hand in ideas any time, and when many people like them I can submit them to Obsidian.

But the general idea is that the design of the BIB is up to Obsidian.

 

In other words, we don't know yet... ;)

 

Edit: Oh yeah, the poll results will be handed in to Obsidian as well of course. But Obsidian is not bound to them.

God damn guys, I was going to throw in $20 after I got my paycheck but at this rate I won't need to. I'll donate to surplus though of you guys are doing that.

Fluffle, simple option: why don't you keep the surplus money? You had so much work and I guess you donated more than there will be excess money. I would be cool with it. Or other suggestion: let us give the money to the kitty (money pool for buying coffee/tee and stuff) of OBS employees?

Ha, thanks for the offer, but no, that would feel wrong to me.

Donations to this cause should be used for this cause ;)

 

We can't give it to the "kitty" because that is the problem. There is currently no way to give Obsidian any money for free.

Which, given that we still would like to reach some stretch goals, is not so ideal, really.

 

See more here:

And actually if there was a way to give Obsidian the surplus money for free I would want it to count for the stretch goals of course!

If you would like to organise a small lottery for any stretch goals, might I suggest using any spare money to buy surplus game keys? That way, Obsidian would make more money, sales of PoE 2 would increase and lottery winners could gift the game to family and friends.

 

It's just a thought. I liked the lottery idea anyway, no matter what add-ons you would get. If there is an equivalent to the PoE cookbook or some other quirky and fun yet useful item that would also work well.

I like this idea. I have several friends I would love to give a copy too, myself.
