Just a heads up for anyone still thinking about Kingmaker or was previously on the fence about it as it is now in the final hours for its campaign.

I ran this campaign a few years ago, and my players really enjoyed it, although we never finished the very last chapter. It had a lot of creative ideas.

Just to compare however, if you were to buy the 6 existing PF1 PDFs for the full AP it would be $84. Not counting any of the additional content they may add, or the companion guide.

$50 for just PDFs seems a little much for me. I'll wait until it's released and goes on sale at some point.

Yes, but on the flip side, its much, much hard to change your pledge around (refunding credit card/involving customer service). It was also something like ~10 clicks to add an add-on after the original pledge. Compared to ~3 in KS. With some of the 10 clicks being delayed, hunting around the screen to see where to go after adding an add-on to get back to the checkout page.

But I'm definitely a backer and fan... Spymaster, plus one copy of the non-special edition cover versions of both books, both 1e and 5e bestiaries, and the pawns now. (Just finished GMing the Kingmaker AP last weekend, will be excited to run it again sometime in the future).

I wasn't sure why they didn't go Kickstarter either, but they did throw this up in their FAQ that explains the reasoning:

Why are you using Game On Tabletop?

Paizo has been partners with the team behind Game On Tabletop for years, and we've watched the development of this gamer-focused crowdfunding platform for some time. We've seen other campaigns migrate over to Game On Tabletop to manage the back end of the campaign as well, and it just made sense of us to leverage the same platform for both launch and the back end.

I was very fortunate to have accidently stumbled upon this as a pre-launch announcement while I was looking through reddit about to see if anyone had attempted a Pathfinder Kingmaker to D&D 5E conversion, otherwise, ya I had never heard of Game On Tabletop before. I will give it that it is neat that you buy your add-ons right in the program itself. So Paizo is right in saying its like doing the pledge manager part of the backend right away and then removing that step later.

I'm backing, was watching it go live yesterday. Wished they had used Kickstarter though. Game On feels like KS of ~4 years ago in terms of QoL. And wish they had some options/tiers above Ruler but below fly to Seattle for experiences.

Thanks for sharing! I might never have come across this, since I'm almost always stalking the halls of Kickstarter, and haven't backed anything on Game On Tabletop before. Until this morning, that is!

Paizo just launched their crowdfunding for the 10th Anniversary Editions for Kingmaker. The interesting part is that they are designing it to also work for D&D 5E which may be of interest to a number of folk here as the Kingmaker Adventure Path is one of Paizo's best.
