    We are privileged to be running two campaigns at the moment. The first, our Beautifully Desolate campaign from the adventure game guys who brought you STASIS.

    Our target is to get some kind of a thing, possibly giant troll statue, into the game. Our target is $2,199 but:

    Pyke: Heres a deal - no matter how much you raise (even if its not the full amount), if you pledge it to the campaign we will meet the community reward. You're getting your statue!​

    So we're there already, yay! However, you can still donate to our campaign and guarantee yourself a game key if you donate at least $19. And because of our wonderful support over the years, Pyke has also said there'll be a few extra game keys in there too. So donate at least $19 to guarantee yourself a game key, but something a bit less might still leave you with a chance of scoring a copy too.

    Check the game's details out here, and have a pretty picture because I know you're all secretly graphics whores:

    In other news, we're also now running a campaign for Pillows of Eternity 2: Josh Sawyer's Wet Dream Pet Adventure. Obsidian have said it's the same deal as with the Fig campaign. Our target is at least $500 but if we raise more:

    $500 Name a Pet
    $750 Create an Item
    $1,000 Two Pets??
    $1,500 Be an NPC
    $1,750 Portrait In-Game
    $2,000 Super Pet
    $5,000 Build a Pirate Party
    $10,000 Josh Sawyer private strip tease​ (I will film this and make it digitally available to all our backers!)​

    Likewise, donating through our campaign not only gets rpgcodex.net in the credits (maximum butthurt achieved) but $29+ gets you a Digital Key, and $45+ gets you the Premium Digital​ tier. Check out the Fig page for what that entails. As we're donating via PayPal, this campaign will run a little longer than the official Fig campaign too.

    Now give us all your monies!

    Why not just put a giant swastika in the game? Everyone will know it's from the Codex.

    Very generous of you, Pyke, but Codex should not be given a statue unless Codex earns it. Now there's less of an incentive to not give money to that other game!

    Oh well, desolation always prevails. Law of entropy, & whatnot.

    PoE2 campaign is DOA.

    Edit. It seems I'm wrong.

    Hmm, might have to change my pledge from Kickstarter to the Codex for BD.


    We should take bets on how low the PoE2 campaign will reach. The 500$ target is appropriate lol

    Yes, sir, immediately, sir. In a recent period of self-reflection I realised that I don't play games any more and the only reason I come to the Codex is to aid in the spreading of butthurt and the generation of drama wherever possible. This knowledge has set me free, and all my money is DU's for the squandering.

    Also, hey, PoE2 might be good, right?

    Regarding POE2, wasn't there the option to crate your own inn? The RPG Codex inn sounds cool.

    The incentive can be like...helping the little guy prevail! Or something.
    I could always say that the SIZE of the statue('s phallus) is dependent on the amount of money received.

    Pyke, you seem a little bit over-eager to get a massive dick into this game. Getting the Codex to fund it is pure genius. :obviously:

    Well, no reason to not route my pledge through the codex I guess.

    Codexian Pirate Party for PoE2 would be funny but I think we should raise at least enough for the backer portrait. In that case, we should ask Sensuki or Darth Roxor if we could put their portraits into the game as the most meta Codexian contribution to the game thats virtually possible.

    Roxor would make a good barbarian, Sensuki would make a good elf. :D You know you want it!

    It was a normal question, actually, like "what where we doing in Africa when the world died" question, but hey, sure.
