It's the Final Countdown!

Join in the last hours of the Pathfinder Online kickstarter!


You've answered the call to kickstart our Pathfinder Online technology demo—but will you saddle up for the final hours of our journey?

We've met our initial goal of $50,000—and then some! Every stretch goal we've set up for the Pathfinder Online technology demo has been met, from the Isle of 2,000 Backers to the Forest of $150,000, but will you find the Planar Rift to the $250,000 Zone? Every step of our stretch goals has meant that you have gotten another level added to that wretched hive of scum and villainy, Thornkeep! This dangerous place was initially designed as just a simple dungeon, penned by industry veteran Rich Baker, but every met goal has added more levels crafted by writers that long-time tabletop gaming fans will recognize—Jason Bulmahn, James Jacobs, Erik Mona, and with the $200,000 goal met, Ed Greenwood as well! Because we've done so phenomenally, the print version of the Thornkeep book (available if you pledge $50 or more) has grown from a 64-page book to 96—that's the size of one of our Adventure Path volumes!

Because we reached other stretch goals for the demo, if you've pledged $75 or more, you'll get your printed copy of the Thornkeep book autographed by all of the dungeon's authors. Even better, your copy of Thornkeep will contain a special bookplate autographed by Ed Greenwood, as well as legendary artist Wayne Reynolds! Not enough for you? If we hit $250,000, we'll kick in not one, but TWO Flip-Mats that will represent all four of the additional dungeon levels, as PDFs if you've pledged $30 or more, and in print if you pledge $100 or more!

Check out all of the details about the Pathfinder Online Technology Demo at Kickstarter, and keep abreast of all the exciting development news from Goblinworks on their blog!

2.2k in 69 minutes? I'm thinking yes.


What is the level range of the dungeon? Does it even have one?

One hour left and the total stands at $299,492. With over 4100 backers. Whoa.

And the designers have 1548 copies to sign. I imagine them, at Paizo hHQ, looking at the numbers, then their writing hands, with a growing sense of dread.

In the two minutes it took me to write this, the numbers bumped up to $299,962

Excuse me, I have a few forums to visit where people stated that PFO won't even lift off the ground, as nobody's interested in it.

Think of it, a few of those were even around here...

Congrats on breaking 300k.

We're back under $300,000. Someone backed out. Keep backing, folks! We're not done yet.

Gorbacz, I'm not sure what this Kickstarter says about people's interest in an MMO. I think the forums here are a better indication of that interest and excitement.

I pledged at the $100 level, and I'm not at all interested in a computer game. I'm pretty happy with the swag I purchased, though; it's a lot of great game design by people I respect.


I'm so glad Paizo has succeeded in their goals. I am more excited about the book myself than the MMO!

I think the typo was mine—I had to do a last-minute rewrite on your blog because we passed one of the stretch goals between the time you wrote it and the time it went live!

Investors aren't going to count posts on the forums, but they *will* see that in 30 days, more than 4,000 people ponied up over $300,000 in the interest of Pathfinder Online! This is a big, visible, measurable accomplishment that removes a lot of doubt.

True about that. Though I think a lot of the excitement (and the strech goals and rewards) were pointed pretty heavily in the direction of the pen-and-paper module becoming more and more awesome, and thus drawing people primarily interested in the Thornkeep book, the extra dungeon levels, the signed version of the book, the extra artwork (signed as well!), a (hopefully) cool T-shirt, and the flip-mats.

On the other hand, the number of US$ 1000 pledges is also quite high, and those are more directly connected with the MMO interest. I just hope people realise what they have signed up for, so there will not be a backlash if development isn't moving forward as fast as hoped... fingers crossed, and the best thing is to keep communications flowing, even if things are not going quite as planned.

10k in the final 70minutes. Wowser.

Crap, just missed it. Congratulations. Hope I can still buy Flip-mats the old fashioned way.

I think 'Wow.' is still pretty appropriate, right? ;)
