As mentioned in my last update I’m currently (for the next couple of weeks) somewhat distracted. Thus Jochen has taken over control as far as release management goes and released two new prereleases in a row. Read the details here:
The most important news is that these prereleases contain the initial integration of
ADOM with NotEye… bringing a slew of cool features to ADOM.
Raised of $48,000 Goal
This campaign received all of the funds contributed by Thu 30 Aug.
for your contribution
Get your name added to a special credits section in the ADOM manual, on a special memorial website dedicated to the campaign and to the "Tome of Donors", a special new but rare in-game artifact with peculiar effects.
As above and receive access to all prerelease builds of the next version of ADOM (kind of nightly builds although we surely won't have a new build every night).
(NEW EXCLUSIVE - NOT INCLUDED IN ANY OTHER PLEDGE LEVEL, DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY OTHER PLEDGE LEVEL)
You receive a signed and numbered print copy of the 64 page "ADOM Lite RPG". This is the only opportunity to receive the RPG - it never again will be reprinted or distributed! Shipping included. Add $25 for each additional copy you would like to receive!
All of the above and suggest a description, an inscription and a magical effect for special magical statues that will start to appear all over the Ancardian dungeons (the magical effect really is just a suggestion for me, the description and inscription definitely will be implemented if they fit ADOMs atmosphere; we will work out something appropriate together; in the unlikely case that we fail to agree there will be no refunds though)
All of the above and receive a personalized and signed post card from Thomas Biskup.
All of the above and you get to specify a non-unique existing monster race, the monster gender, the monster name and one special power out of a preselected set. You also may suggest an addition to the monster description. Said monster will be added to a special roster of unique wandering challenge monsters that pop up randomly during the game.
As above and receive a PDF download of a poster map of the Drakalor Chain suitable for printing. Additionally the unique boss monster from the Hero level can have up to two (!) special powers selected from a predefined set.
All of the above and receive a special, personalized and highly limited certificate showing your lordship as well as displaying a random piece of the ADOM source code (about 60 lines). Additionally the unique boss monster from the Hero level can have up to three (!) special powers selected from a predefined set.
All of the above and get a limited signed and numbered ADOM Classic Boxed Set. Including a collectors certificate, a CD with the game and documents, a binary for the oldest compilable ADOM version we can reproduce, the "ADOM Lite RPG", a Drakalor Chain map and a hand tuned d20. These boxes will never again be available! Add $10 for shipping in Germany, $20 for Europe and $40 for all others. More details to the left.
As above and suggest a new random in-game artifact (we'll work it out together) and name it. (in the unlikely event that we fail to agree on an artifact there are no refunds!) Additionally you get to choose the general section from which the source code of the previous reward comes.
Avatar of Thieves
All of the above including the "Master Thief" pledge level (contrary to what that one says) and receive a binary copy of the source code of ADOM for the oldest released ADOM version that we can reproduce from our source code repository (comes with an NDA forbidding distribution or usage; this is for research-only, sorry). Shipping included. More details to the left.
As above and receive the hard bound source code of ADOM for your personal perusal (that's probably something like 10 big tomes of source code). I personally will deliver the books to wherever you live and spend a weekend talking about ADOM, ADOM II, etc. with you if desired. Please understand that you will be required to sign an NDA with this collectors item to not distribute the content.
