If you didn't think I was serious...



All-time great RPG artist Jeff Dee has agreed to create a new full-color cover for the Michael T. Desing’s Army Ants Legacy Edition RPG. Old School Fans (including me) rejoice! Jeff’s art created a sense for me of what RPGs should look like, and to have his art gracing the cover of my ultimate RPG rulebook is simply beyond awesome. However, the coolness doesn’t stop there. I’ve also adjusted the stretch goals to accommodate this great news.

At $7500, all backers at $50 or more will get a limited edition print of the new Jeff Dee art, printed in full color at 11”x14” on glossy stock.

At $10,000, we go totally crazy. One random backer at $50 or more will get THE ORIGINAL ART that Jeff created. That’s right. I am loathe to give it away, but if the community gives me this much support, I will absolutely do it.

If we hit this stretch goal, I will also re-publish both the 2nd and 3rd editions of the MTDAA RPG as FREE downloads, and I will publish conversions as appendices to the new game that will allow you to adapt material from this edition to either 2E or 3E. This way, you’ll be able to use the dice pool systems of 2E or 3E (each with a different approach to dice pools) or the progressive die system of the Legacy Edition.

In addition, the next few backers at $50+ still get a free copy of the 2nd edition of the MTDAA RPG (from 1998) that I discovered in the ‘army ant vaults’ last week. I still have a few left that haven’t been claimed…

The MTDAA war effort continues through March 9th! Pledge today.
