Please only vote in this poll if you have backed the Pathfinder Online Kickstarter at the $35 Adventurer Reward Level or higher and are a member of one of the listed Guilds.
This is the Leaderboard for the Kickstarter Land Rush. Guilds appearing on this Leaderboard have registered with Goblinworks. If you have backed the Kickstarter at the $500 Crowdforger Guild level, and you want your Guild name to appear here, please email email@example.com with your Guild name. Names are probationary and you will be able to change them before play begins. It is more important to track your Guild Kickstarter backers than to finalize your Guild name at this stage.
If you are a member of a Guild on this list and you have backed the Kickstarter at the $35 Adventurer Level or higher, you can vote on this poll to indicate your Guild Membership.
Because there is no way to link a pledge on Kickstarter to external data like this Leaderboard, we're asking everyone to be on their honor when indicating their Guild membership. Results will not be finalized until confirmed in the post-Kickstater Backer Survey, and will be subject to change.
This is not a popularity contest or a way to indicate support for the Kickstarter or for a particular Guild name. This is a Leaderboard to track Guild participation in the Kickstarter, so if you are not a member of one of the listed Guilds please don't vote in this poll.
All listed Guilds are credited with 6 "members" via the $500 Crowdforger Guild pledge. The person who pledged at that Reward level should not vote in this poll. Your participation is already being tracked.
The Kickstarter Land Rush Promotion
This Leaderboard will determine the order that initial Settlements will be created in Pathfinder Online during the Early Enrollment period. After a suitable amount of time has elapsed in Early Enrollment for players to get a sense of the available territory and the relative merits of the initial Hexes available, we will conduct a draft for Territory.
The Guild with the highest Membership total will draft first, the second highest Membership will draft second, etc. These Membership totals will be finalized as a part of the post-Kickstarter survey process so final totals will not be available until after that process has completed. This Leaderboard should give Guilds a sense of where they stand in relation to other Guilds during the Kickstarter and it will help them track how effective they've been at recruiting Guild members to join the promotion.
The First Settlements
During Early Enrollment we will not have the Territorial Control game mechanic implemented. During this period, Settlements will not face the threat of being displaced by hostile forces. Near the end of Early Enrollment we will be expanding the territory in the game to include a lot of unclaimed Hexes where players will be able to create new Settlements even if they were not participants in this Promotion. After a suitable interval, the Territorial Warfare system will be introduced, and Settlements will begin to vie with one another for Territorial Control.
You'll be provided with a Guild Lodge in your Hex that you can restrict access to and probably some other early buildings as the Settlement system matures.
The entire Settlement system will be implemented incrementally during Early Enrollment so issues of Settlement Charters, Settlement Alignments, Settlement Management, etc. will all be determined later as a part of the Crowdforging process and you need not worry about them for the purposes of this promotion. Until the system is more robustly implemented, these initial Settlements will not affect a character's ability to train skills and gain character abilities.
We reserve the right to limit your choice of Guild name and if we determine there is a problem we'll contact you to resolve it. We also reserve the right to add or remove Guilds from the Leaderboard at our discretion to preserve the integrity of the Leaderboard. If we determine that a Guild has accumulated a material number of votes without corresponding Kickstarter backers, we will remove those votes, or remove the Guild from the Leaderboard, or take any other action that we determine in the best interest of the game and the community to resolve the situation.
The submission of a name to this promotion does not guarantee the backers the use of that name in the game. We reserve the right to assign a Guild name to another group if we determine that it is in the best interest of the game and the community to do so.
