Care to mention what the content difference is between this incarnation and the previous one?

Sounds like multiple short scenarios?

I tokenized that rat.

Excellent news, Jeff!  A few Qs for you:

- Will you run the KS for a month, or perhaps for longer/shorter?
- Will you have any KS exclusives?  In the past, you've done a great job of making the same KS modules/etc. available later, sometimes at slightly-higher prices, but otherwise the same product/content. 
- What more can you tell us about the final screen contents? :D
- ...and the DM index contents? :D :D

Allan.

While I realize this is likely to be a pipe dream, but is there any chance this will ship in time for Gary Con XI? Having those player manuals handy for running games would be awesome

Jeff,
Are you going to share the WIP KS page here before it is up and running on all hallows eve (like you did last time)

And thanks everyone for the nice comments on the folio art. Glynn did a great job of coloring it too!

Cough... DMs index... cough 😇

Hi Allan!

Yes, a 30 day campaign.

- Will you have any KS exclusives?  In the past, you've done a great job of making the same KS modules/etc. available later, sometimes at slightly-higher prices, but otherwise the same product/content. 

One of the KS exclusives that we routinely do is complimentary PDFs with print purchases. Once the KS campaign is over, these are sold separately. There will be some bundles that allow folks to save money, too. One is the "ALL-IN" bundle, which is one of everything: Players' Manual ($40), Player Character Folder ($15), Referee's Screen ($20), and Rats in the Walls and Other Perils ($20). This $95 value is going to be offered for $90. We also have an "EXCELSIOR!" bundle that is the same as "ALL-IN", except it includes x4 copies of the PM, and x4 copies of the PC Folder. This bundle provides a $10 saving. 

- What more can you tell us about the final screen contents? :D

It has 32 tables, covering a lot of what we all talked about in the thread that was dedicated to it. Of course, I couldn't include all the requests, but the ones that kept getting mentioned time and time again are likely in there. One that should have been obvious to me, for example, that I hadn't considered before was Table 11 (thief abilities).  

- ...and the DM index contents? :D :D

That's the PM. It is a lot! Pretty much every term you could imagine is in there. In the original design, we had a very comprehensive TOC at the start of each volume, but it seemed that a lot of folks still wanted a traditional index, too, so the Players' Manual will now have both!

Thanks for your interest, grodog!

Cheers,
Jeff T.

Not a pipe dream at all. It's a very possible reality!
