Just finished the WoD The Heck actual play and it was so much fun to listen to, though I feel having these gonzo AP's too frequently would definitely get tiresome.  Quarterly might be a good schedule.

I'd also be into seeing an old WoD campaign as a milestone goal sometime in the future.

I'm going to mirror a lot of what's been said but oh well...

Personally, I don't want novelty items or knick-knacks from kickstarter campaigns.  I want the product, and that's usually it.  So I agree with keeping costs down by keeping physical rewards to a minimum. 

Having said that, for Red Markets I would definitely want custom dice, especially in a 5/5 set.  I could take or leave a hardcover edition, though I am interested in a physical book. 

Using the podcast itself as a reward seems like an avenue to explore by offering a chance to be on the main show or After Hours.  You could also offer advertising on the podcast as a reward tier (not something I'm currently interested in, just spit-balling).

I love what the Delta Green kickstarter did by offering micro freebies (advice, microfiction, scenarios) as stretch goals to all backers.  I feel like that helped pushed the numbers up, but it's a lot of extra work and coordination.

Here's Elder's updated character sheet with budget:

Antonio Delgado was well on his way to being a career Cartel member.  Growing up in Tijuana, Mexico, he started scamming tourists at the tender age of eleven.  Selling weed and petty theft by thirteen.  At sixteen he started driving illegals across the border, helping his friends and family pursue a better life in the states.  Sure, there were probably Cartel drugs on board, but he knew better than to ask. 

Then two young men in white shirts and ties came knocking on his family's door.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the life preserver that Antonio didn't realize he needed.  He was baptized immediately, quickly converting the rest of his family and renouncing his life of crime; a conversion story akin to the apostle Paul.  A year later he was off to serve his own two-year mission in the United States.  More specifically, the state of Missouri.   

Then The Crash happened, and Antonio, stranger in a strange land, banded with other Mormons to survive.  With Armageddon imminent, the faithful gathered near the microscopic town of Jameson, an area believed to be the first place that Christ would visit during the Second Coming.

When Jesus didn't show up, the enclave of Adam-ondi-Ahman was formed.  Antonio's criminal background helped the settlement survive those first few years, whether it was dealing with raiders or safely navigating the salvaging of goods.

The apocalypse came and went, and with no Savior in sight Antonio's new goal became getting back home to Mexico.  And to do that he needed bounty, which he sure as heck wasn't gonna get by singing hymns all day.

Still true to the faith, Antonio goes by the name Elder.  It's on his name tag, so why change it now?

Weak Spot: Self-Martyr
Elder will take any opportunity to sacrifice his time and resources for the greater good, especially if everyone else is watching.

Soft Spot: Immigrant Spirit
Elder can't help but sympathize with those that leave family, friends, and the familiar for the chance at a better life.

Tough Spot: Still Faithful
+2 Self-Control, but CHA skills against non-believers automatically fail.  Elder's faith has sustained him these past five years, but he wears his beliefs on his sleeve.  Because of this atheists and most agnostics discredit anything he says. 

Jesse Yong is Elder's former missionary companion and best friend, who he brought along when he left Adam-ondi-Ahman.  Jesse suffers from chronic kidney disease, so while he's still able to work, Elder's bounty is what keeps the medication and treatments coming.


When I first started reading about Red Markets, one of my first ideas involved Mormon missionaries (raised Mormon, non-practicing).  There are so many here in the States from other countries, and most of them would be stranded here after the Crash.  Imagine being a 20 year old in a foreign country with no family or resources while trying to fight off zombies with your randomly assigned companion as your only friend.  I can't wait to see how the concept works out, especially trying to adhere to religious dogma in the carrion economy.

The state of Missouri plays an important role in LDS history and, supposedly, the future.  Missouri was the last state the young LDS church tried to settle before getting kicked out and sent to Utah in 1839.  There is property in Missouri that the church owns called Adam-ondi-Ahman.  It was supposedly the place that Adam and Eve lived after getting kicked out of the Garden of Eden.  It's also believed that it's the first place Christ will visit during the Second Coming. 

Please take all this info about the LDS church with a grain of salt.  It has been about ten years since I've stepped inside a church and I'm sure I'm getting something wrong.
