‘City Builder’ Platinum Edition Kickstarter Update #7: ‘Mortuary’ Unlocked!

Michael O. Varhola

Day seven of our Kickstarter campaign for a "Platinum Edition" of Skirmisher Publishing’s City Builder: A Guide to Designing Communities was extremely active and both unlocked a new Stretch Goal and ended our first week at the $10,000 mark! Thanks to everyone who has helped us take this project to the great point that it is at. 

* When we hit $10,000 we unlocked the Mortuary, a new tradesman place that game developer and LARP impresario William T. Thrasher will write. Properly preparing the deceased for burial or whatever other way their remains will be disposed of is important in all cultures, and can be even more essential in worlds where the dead do no always remain quiet. 

* When we reach the $11,000 mark we will unlock the Hermitage, a new religious place that original City Builder author Michael O. Varhola will write. From hollow trees, rough caves, and lonely ruins, to neat woodland cottages, places used to shelter and nurture a spiritual environment for religious ascetics might be either deliberately visited or stumbled upon by characters in the course of their explorations. 

“I stumbled upon a number of places like this, some of which had not been used for many years and some of which were still occupied by religious folk, when I hiked the Camino de Santiago last year,” Varhola said. “And my character actually encountered one in the very first D&D adventure I played through, back in 1982. So, I am very much looking forward to creating a place of this sort for the revised and expanded edition of City Builder.” 

Thanks to everyone who has come on board with this project and helped bring it this far! Please also tell your friends why they should come on board with it well and help us get out the word about it so we can take it as far as possible for you and all its other supporters.
