Deluxe Upgrade! We’ll add color plates to the deluxe edition to really show the best of the weird art!
Funding Goal: $350,000
In Progress (92% )
We need $28,978 more to reach this goal.

Thank you, backers!

After a wonderful few days, you’ve unlocked yet another stretch goal: the expansion to the Weird Deck is unlocked!

Earlier in this campaign, you unlocked an upgrade to the deluxe edition of The Weird. This book is going to be really cool, with its foil cover, transparent dust jacket, and other weird and deluxe features. Let’s make it even cooler! At $350,000, we’ll add eight pages of color plates, giving a deluxe treatment to the best of the awesome artwork featured within the book.

Please remember to keep spreading the word about this campaign. This is a new platform for us, and it’s not as easy for gamers who are unfamiliar with MCG to stumble upon it the way they might stumble upon a campaign on Kickstarter. Your help getting the word out there really has an impact!

Thanks again for your support!

Weird Deck Upgrade! We’ll expand this useful tool to a full 100 cards!
Funding Goal: $300,000
We did it!
This project reached this goal!
Once again, thank you backers!

In our second stretch goal unlock in the same day, you’ve funded the sticker sheet. Prepare to “weird up” your characters with images, replacement headers, and more, to make your character's sheet as unique as the game you're playing. This sticker sheet will be included with every copy of The Weird, so if your rewards include The Weird in print—standard or deluxe edition—you'll get the sticker sheet along with it!

Our very first stretch goal increased the content of The Weird. Let’s do the same thing for the Weird Deck. The Weird Deck is a tool for generating cool, interesting ideas at the game table without breaking the pace of your game. Want a bit of inspiration on the fly? Just draw a card. Or draw two or three, and pick the one you like best at the moment. It works just as well during prep, too.

At $300,000, we’ll upgrade the deck to a full 100 cards!

There’s lots of great buzz for this campaign. Please keep spreading the word, so we can bring in the new backer and hit this stretch goal—and more!

Thanks again for your support!

Weird Stickers! A sheet of stickers to customize your characters.
Funding Goal: $250,000
We did it!
This project reached this goal!

Thank you, again, backers!

Yesterday was an exciting first day for this campaign—thank you so much for your support, which helped us fund and unlock our first stretch goal. This morning we’ve hit our second stretch goal, and the first upgrade to the deluxe edition of The Weird has been unlocked!

Now that we’ve upgraded the deluxe edition, let’s upgrade your character sheet! We’d like to make a set of stickers to “weird up” your character sheet—because your character's sheet needs to be as unique as the game you're playing. We'll make weird images and replacement headers for the sheet, to dress up the common entries like "Equipment" and "Special Abilities." You can highlight that strange new magic item you found, or tailor the sheet to your own personal oddities. Use them to modify your character sheet however you want to make it weird.

This sticker sheet will be included with every copy of The Weird. If your rewards include The Weird (standard or deluxe edition) in print, you’ll get the sticker sheet too. We’ll unlock the weird stickers at $250,000.

Keep spreading the word! We have lots of additional upgrades and expansions—weird, practical, or both—we’d like to make to The Weird, The Glimmering Valley, the decks, and more. Let’s unlock this stretch goal, and see what else we can do!

Thanks again for your support!

Deluxe Upgrade! We'll upgrade the bookmarks— and add more— in the deluxe edition!
Funding Goal: $200,000

This project reached this goal!

Thank you, backers!

What an exciting first day it’s been—so far! No sooner than we announce the first stretch goal, it seems, you have us back writing an update for the next one. Yep, the expansion of The Weird is unlocked, and Monte will add ready-made weird events you can drop into any game!

Things are still moving along at an amazing pace, so let’s talk about another stretch goal. The deluxe version of The Weird is going to be really cool, with its transparent dust jacket, foil cover, and other exclusive features. We’d love to make it even cooler, and we have a lot of ideas to do so.

Because this is a book you’ll reference frequently—at the game table as well as while prepping—the deluxe edition includes a couple of bookmarks. These will be beautiful as well as handy, featuring striking (and weird) art. Let’s improve this feature! At $200,000, we’ll increase the number of bookmarks to three, and add foil stamping and/or a die-cut design to make them truly deluxe.

Keep spreading the word! We have a number of other great ideas for improving and expanding the items you’re funding, and the more people who discover this campaign, the more of these stretch goals we can make happen!

Thanks again for your support!

This project reached this goal!

Thank you, backers!

Things are going to get weird! That’s because, thanks to your incredible support, The Weird has already passed its funding goal. We’re going to give you the inspiration, advice, and thousands and thousands of ideas for making your game—any game—more interesting, engaging, memorable, and fun. And we’re going to take you into the Glimmering Valley, giving you a weird region of the weird Ninth World to explore in unprecedented detail!

As we continue this campaign over the next few weeks, we have a number of stretch goals we hope to hit to further inspire you. Now that we’re funded, let’s talk about the first of these:

For our first stretch goal, let’s make The Weird even bigger! We’ll expand the existing content plan (which already includes thousands of interesting, surprising, gonzo, and whimsical ideas for PCs, NPCs, creatures, places, magic items, gear, spells, abilities, names, appearances, backgrounds, plots, structures, and vehicles, for virtually every genre of play) to include weird events that you can drop into any game. These will have more detail than other categories of ideas—but they’ll still be 100% system-neutral, so you can use them in any game.

This campaign is running hot, and today has been very exciting—and the excitement is sure to continue as the day progresses! We’ll unlock this stretch goal at $150,000.

Be sure to help spread the word—the more people who discover this campaign, the faster we’ll be able to unlock this and other stretch goals!

Thanks again for your support!
