By now you've all had a small taste of what's on the way in the upcoming Kickstarter project. Some of you have already had the honor of speaking with Mr. Constantine, a patron of mine who commissioned me for some work with the Whateley Memorial House.
If you haven't yet got started, be sure to email Mr. Constantine. His address is firstname.lastname@example.org. He will provide you all the info you need to begin.
What you're likely wondering is how all this fits into the project, and how it effects it's outcome.
During the course of the project, on certain dates, at midnight (in certain timezones) a very special pledge level will become available. This pledge level (13$) will earn it's lucky recipient everything created during the project including shipping anywhere in the world.
Now you could just check the page at the top of every hour of the day for 30 days or, you could play along with us and be a part of a Kickstarter experience unlike any other.
The entire project, when it is revealed, will be run as a media spanning Altered Reality Game. Wherein clues regarding artwork releases, stretch goals, pledge levels and release times for The Chosen pledges can be uncovered.
Additionally some of our stretch goals, most notably those that will be freely available for everyone at certain pledge levels, will ONLY be unlockable by our intrepid investigators. Through their diligence everyone who supports the project will get a very tangible benefit.
I stress this is not a contest, rather a (hopefully) entertaining way for our community to create, interact, and have a good time together.
**"How will I know I'm on the right track?"**
First: Use The Whateley House Forums, located here. There will be information regarding investigations and other useful information.
Clues are like leaves. They move, then settle, and sometimes they are buried. But in this case, when you have found something of note. There will be a leaf present. Either textually, or perhaps hidden in an image.
Every investigation will reach a point where Mr. Constantine must become involved, or at least his surrogates. So that your progress can be tracked. Feel free to ask for help, and guidance. Just don't expect to always be given the truth. After all what fun would that be?
When you have found the goal of an investigation, it will bear a particular symbol. Always the same one, either hidden or plainly visible somewhere in the media in which it has been found. This will both tell the good people helping run the game that the objective has been uncovered (thus unlocking an investigatorial stretch goal) or tell you the date to be watching for The Chosen pledge level to become available.
Good hunting Dear Investigators. Our hopes go with you.
