Thank you! Just one of the many reasons I love your company.
Once again, I can't pledge because of the wanky garbled speech my software is presenting me with... aka I'm blind and can't understand a word when I click on the link. To be fair, I've never had this problem with kickstarter, so I don't have a clue why this is happening. I've played and GM'ed this adventure before, so I want it for 2nd ed. Please, someone out there help me with this. I really want this book/pdf.
My screen reader software is JAWS. I've tried using multiple browsers with the same results. Firefox, IE, Edge.
First off I’m blind. I’d love to pledge for this project, but every time I click on either KingmakerCampaign.com. or the Make your pledge on Game On Tabletop! Links I get a bunch of garbled speech. I use speech reading software. I’ve had someone look at the screen and it is all in English, so I don’t know where the problem lies. Just thought someone should know.
I think it was a quarterstaff, being blind I don't fully remember. The staff in question could be used one-handed for 1d4 or two-handed for 1d8. Make of that as you will.

Ok, I’m going to comment here. I playtested Ezren at Origins and he was proficient with a staff, dagger, and crossbow. Whether or not he was proficient with other simple weapons, that remains to be seen.

Currently, I can read the [[A]]. It isn't the problem. The problem from what I understand is that this is just a stand in for the actual icon they plan on using in the future. I have no idea what that will be, which is why I'm concerned.
Being totally blind, I know that almost all icons in almost every game I've found them in, are absolutely worthless when it comes to screen readers. Most of the time the icons doen't even show up at all. Starfinder icons for instance show up as a number. Unfortunately, that number is never the same, even for the same icon. Its beyond annoying.
Thank you. I was trying to find just the right way to explain that. This is a game that even I can play, and I'd like to keep it that way. There isn't many of us out there, but I still would like to feel like they took me into consideration.
I love almost everything I've read about. I have one concern however. You keep mentioning all these icons that will be appearing in the text to denote types of actions, etc. Being blind, icons like this are a real pain. I can’t read them with my software. This makes it impossible for me to even create a character without help. Please find a way in which people like me can enjoy your products without having to resort to outside assistance. Thanks for listening.

No worries Adam, I didn't expect any more than that. I just like gazeteers, big and small. Besides any more info on the area is more than I already have, so even small tidbits is a good thing.
