I have been busy making a roleplaying game the last year, when my body allows it. The main rule book is already finished and in print. Now we are about to make a bunch of supplements for it though, and to be able to do this we need money. Therefore we have started a crowdfunder: igg.me/at/sm25
I'm writing this because I really want this to succeed. It would mean a lot to me if it did. It would get us enough money to buy pictures and texts I can't do myself, and also make us able to print it all. Plus it would give me something to do for a year or three. This would also mean a lot to me since I'm retired due to a bunch of chronic diseases (EDS among others) and need a bit of therapy work when my body has some extra energy.
Anyway. The game is called Skuggornas mästare (Master of Shadows). You play an agent, spy, vigilante, ninja or something similar. The setting can be described as James Bond meets XCOM, Narnia and Cthulhu. Add some satire, absurd things, timetravel and conspiracies and you have Skugornas mästare. The game is in Swedish, as is the crowdfunding page.
Those who don't understand Swedish can get something out of it though, by getting merchandise like art books, art and other things. You probably need a translation service to be able to understand what the different perks give (like translate.google.se/?hl=en&… ). Copy the perk text from the perk you are interrested and read the slightly strange translation. If you want a perk you just click it and follow the instructions given (IndieGoGo itself is in English).
The first perk is the merchandise perk. You don't need to know Swedish to "use" the gifts you get from it. The perk text says:
Approximately 9 Swedish crowns + addons
Get updated about the project by email. Get merchandise with Skuggornas mästare theme (Master of Shadows theme) as addon. Choose what you want from the list, write it down and total the sum. Add 1 euro and pay the sum you got.

Of course, if you just want to give us something out of the goodness of your heart, and help a struggling artist, I would be just as happy. This is done by clicking the "Contribute Now" button at the end of the page. Next fill in how much you want to give, from 1 euro (slightly more than a US dollar) up to 10000 and click the "Continue" button at "No perk, I just want to contribute". Just follow the instructions after that.
