Reaper's Bones Kickstarter project has ended with a whopping $3,429,236.00, making it the third most successful project in Kickstarter history. The novelty of a gaming-related Kickstarter project getting this kind of support turned a lot of heads and even warranted this article on Wired.com.
The pledges really took off in the final days of the campaign, unlocking even more cool stretch goals, which made the $100 Vampire level so attractive I just couldn't resist it. Even though I couldn't really afford it, I couldn't afford NOT to up my contribution; a $100 pledge gets me over 240 miniatures. This will keep me painting for a good long time.
Here's the image of all the swag with the last stretch goals added in:
Of particular interest to us Old School gamers, the perks include a free PDF of Frog God Games' Swords & Wizardry Complete.
If you're drooling over all this cool stuff, turning green with envy and kicking yourself for not jumping in, there's good news: Reaper is setting up a post-Kickstarter pledge manager to allow people who missed out on the Kickstarter to still get in on the deal. Simply click this link and submit your email, then Reaper will contact you when their post-Kickstarter pledge manager is up and running.

"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."
"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"
"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"
