[1] Not to be confused with Pyramid: Dungeon Fantasy Collected
I agree 100%. The GURPS Pyramid: Dungeon Collection could have been worthy of its own stand-alone kickstarter. I suspect it will be as useful as just about any other DFRPG/G:DF book—full of ready-to-use-with-little-to-no-prep maps, monsters, loot, etc. And it's available for the first time as a pdf, which is why I'm only now getting it.

Plus, grabbing it as an add-on gets us closer to the $15,000 stretch goal. To that end, I may add the Roleplayer or Pyramid bundle to my order as well. (I'll get pyramid dice when they come in yellow, instead of just red, white, and blue. Hint. Hint.)

I really would have liked to order the DF Magic Items 2 and the nice collection book, too, unfortunately shipping in that Kickstarter was limited to the US... :-/
Well, hopefully the books will be available via Warehouse23 at some later point.

As stated on the project page:

"To improve our chances of successfully releasing the book on time, we are limiting physical rewards to U.S. backers only. In the future, after the rewards have shipped, the printed book will be made available through the Amazon print-on-demand program."

You can find the current list of print-on-demand GURPS titles here:

http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/ondemand/

This approach will make the printed book less expensive for the international players. Rather than print and ship from the U.S., buying the book through the Amazon program will mean the book prints and ships from a location much closer to you.

I have bought a lot of titles from the GURPS POD program - really appreciating having access to newly printed old and new titles. I am not so sure if I think the kickstarter/POD combo is ideal though. Having said that, I think it is good that SJG is trying new things - resting on your laurels is not a good thing.

That sounds very promising, thanks for the info! :)

According to this post; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/2612797

There should be a $15.00 pdf option in Backerkit, I am only finding a softback option. Am I either misunderstanding how this option was offered, missing it entirely, or missed a later change in how this book is being offered?

Edit;
Or is it something else entirely?

I was expecting to be able to get the $15 Pyramid Dungeon Collection add-on on top of my $10 Magic Items 2 as well, how can I add it?

Thanks for the catch! This is exactly why we run the tests.

The team will get that corrected once the office is open.
I'm just waiting to do my BackerKit stuff till they add the $15 Pyramid Dungeon Collection PDF to the add-ons options.

PDF has now been added to BackerKit. Now you see why smoke tests exist!

Was the Pyramid Dungeon Collection part of the add ons yesterday? I didn't see it (possible perception check failure on my part), so I put the $15 extra towards staff lunches.

Not going to take back my tip, mind you. But others may have missed it, too.

And will it be on W23?
