I've already supported a couple of projects, a Shadowrun computer game and another one called "The Banner's Saga" very influenced by King of Dragon Pass. There could even be another Gloranthan computer game, I know I'd put money there and maybe even lend a hand (it's what I do for a living after all).

> I 've been thinking about possible Gloranthan Kickstarter projects.

> * The boardgames that are floating around out there, either reprints of

> * Getting more titles into the Unfinished Works/Stafford Library series
> (Hrestol's Saga, Arkat's Saga, Lords of the West manuscript, etc.)
> * Carry on the "Friends of Glorantha" tradition to finance new writing
> (updated Hrestol's Saga, anyone?)
> Kickstarter could be a good way to gauge interest, get some projects going
> and, most importantly, unleash some of that Gloranthophile cash that's just
> sitting around unused!
