    [​IMG] To help ensure that Torment: Tides of Numenera meets all its stretch goals and to immortalize the Sorcerer's Place community in the game (e.g. via a NPC or item), we're running a donation drive to raise funds for one of the higher-level tiers.

    We would like to raise a minimum of $750 (which gets us the "design an item" tier), but the more we raised, the more "SP" content would end up in the game.

    ---

    --->>> DONATE HERE <<<---
    !! Only donations made via the above donation link count towards the Torment: Tides of Numenera fundraiser !!

    [​IMG] The option to add a note with your donation shows on the "review your donation" page, just before you finalize the donation. It looks like this: [+] Donation Notes (example circled in red below)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] When you click on the [+] button or the "Donation Notes" text link, it expands and allows you to type a message to send with your donation. Please list your BoM user name in the donation notes so that we know who to thank!

    If you would like to donate towards covering the Sorcerer's Place expenses instead (or additionally), you can do so HERE.

    FAQ:

    Q: So what is this "Torment: Tides of Numenera" anyway?

    A: Torment: Tides of Numenera is a game set in the world of Monte Cook’s new tabletop RPG setting, Numenera. Torment continues the thematic legacy of Planescape: Torment, a critically acclaimed role-playing game from 1999 that's considered by many to be a hallmark for storytelling in computer RPGs. With Torment, we're striving to create a rich role-playing experience that explores similar deep, personal themes. Here's the scoop:

    • Torment is a single-player, isometric role-playing game.
    • You will play a single, specific character, though you will encounter optional NPC companions you may choose to include in your party.
    • The story-driven game will have a rich dialogue system and approach similar to that of Planescape: Torment.
    • The game will be developed in the Unity engine for PC (Windows), Mac, and Linux platforms.
    • The game will be available in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish.
    • The game will be distributed DRM-free. (You’ll be able to get it from Steam, and other DRM-free download options will be made available.)
    Q: Is Sorcerer's Place going to get rich from all this fundraiser money?

    A: No. Sorcerer's Place is collecting the fundraiser money merely for the purpose of forwarding it to the Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter as a single "Sorcerer's Place community" donation. We won't keep a dime of it. In fact, we're going to contribute our own money to it as well!

    Q: How much money are you aiming for?

    Our initial goal is $750 USD, but we'd like to raise $1000 so that we can get an NPC in the game, since we've already got an item in Project Eternity.

    Q: What's in it for me?

    You mean the knowledge that you've helped immortalize the Sorcerer's Place community in what's bound to be a great new CRPG from the creators of such gems as Planescape: Torment, Mask of the Betrayer, Arcanum, Icewind Dale & Baldur's Gate series, etc. is NOT ENOUGH? Sheesh!

    Well, how about we also give you a 1-year SPS account (or extension) if you donate $25 or more? Done!

    You'll also get our undying (undead?) gratitude, as well as an ETERNAL LISTING OF YOUR USERNAME ON THIS PAGE. That's how everyone else gets to see how awesome you are. Ha!

    And best of all, the top 30 donors will also get a digital copy of the game (should they require it). At present, this means that any donation of $20 or more will also get you a copy of the game! Please note, however, that as more people donate, the limit for inclusion in the top 30 will also rise.

    We'll also reward you with a unique T:ToN achievement icon, visible in all your forum posts!

    Q: How much should I donate?

    Well, obviously the more the better! But any sum is welcome - you're free to choose.

    Q: What is the community getting out of all this?

    Our initial goal of $1000 gets us this:

    What we'll end up going with is yet to be determined, as are all the details.

    Q: How long is this fundraiser going to last?

    At least until the time that inXile's own Kickstarter campaign ends, so until April 5, 2013. We might be able to extend this date since we'll be donating via PayPal.

    Q: What do I do, I've already pledged directly to the Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter?

    A: You can always revoke or reduce your pledge there and join our collection if you feel like it. Or, you can donate here as well. However, please realize that we will most likely NOT be able to secure a copy of T:ToN for everyone who has donated via our own fundraiser if you donate less than $20, but the copies that we do get, we will distribute among the most generous donors.

    If you've enjoyed the community & content on Sorcerer's Place that we've been providing you with since 1999, please consider donating to this fundraiser to show that we're still going strong!

    Q: OK, but I still have a question that's not covered here.

    A: Then post in this thread or PM Taluntain.

    Well looks like we will have some items in a couple of games then since we already got one in Project eternity already. I have no problem with it but no money to shell out for this type of thing. Good luck none the less getting the money for this.

    Since we're off to a slow start here, I'm going to ramp up the reward for participating in this fundraiser. Everyone who donates $25 or more will get an SPS account (new or extension) for a full year!

    We've only got 10 days left on this fundraiser, so if you'd like to donate, don't delay!

    Arkite's donation raises the total to $925 of $1000 needed! :thumb:

    From the looks of things we'll have enough copies so that everyone who's donated $25 or more will be getting a copy of the game, should they want it. If you've donated less than that, you can still top up your donation to reach $25 until April 10 and secure yourself a copy of the Torment: Tides of Numenera!
