It's going to be close! To get to $15,000 (the final goal), we need another $4,000 which means $363 a day. According to Kicktraq, this is just about the daily average recently:

Wow this link is cool, but also shows that it has really leveled off in the last 4 days.

Not a surprise. I suspect that most projects get the most support early on and tail off with time. Eventually, most of the folks really interested have already kicked in their support.

Sometimes there is a mad frenzy towards the end of a project if a stretch goal looks like it is attainable.

For those of us in various social media circles it wouldn't hurt to put the word out just a bit closer to the target date. See if any last bit of publicity can be drummed up.

Same here...couldn't really pass it up... for another $20, I get a print copy and a pdf copy of "The Olde Isle" campaign setting no matter if the 15k stretch goal is reached or not...+ I get to lightly design (500 words or less) and name a location :D

Wow! $1550 away from the Final Goal with 5 days, 8 hours left.

It is going to be close, but I think we can do it. :-)

Looks like IronWolf's mad frenzy is a go! $1300 to go. It's going to be a photo finish!

Somebody let him know that he misspelled his domain name in the profile part of that Kickstarter page... it's missing the L in "halfLing."

Oops. I hadn't noticed that, either. I'll send a note to John about it. :oops:

A sliver over $1000 to raise now, and 3 days to do it. It's going to be tight; hopefully more fence-sitters will jump onboard.

Maybe a stupid question, but is there any way to pledge through PayPal?

Not by actually going through the Kickstarter itself, as far as I'm aware. It's why some rpg crowd-funding projects are starting to switch to Indiegogo instead, as that does take direct order via credit card or Paypal. Seems a better way of doing it than being attached to Amazon accounts, imo.

Not 100% sure on this as I am not fond of PayPal (and in turn is one of the reasons I prefer kickstarter over indiegogo hehe), but if you have a PayPal debit card I would imagine that you could use it through amazon (at least according to the interwebs :) ).

Kickstarter only works via Amazon Payments. And I think you need a real credit card for that to work.

Getting even closer now! I will toss another reminder up on my Google+ account tomorrow. Others that are interested in seeing this one hit that final goal might want to do so as well. Let's get that frenzy going! :D

Just bumped my pledge up to $31. I really want to reach that last goal and get The Old Isle setting.

I was glad it made the initial funding .... everything else is just bonus; and we are approaching the SUPER bonus round now!
