    You don't play tabletop role-playing games. You just want to support anti-fascist art, entertainment, and memetic warfare. You have our sincere thanks, comrade. Repeat the Signal.

    This reward is only available to a single backer. In addition to everything in the "Hardcover (Premium Color) & PDF Plus" reward tier, you will receive a custom 3' x 4' SIGMATA poster signed by the author, and a custom SIGMATA T-Shirt built to your specifications. Your hardcover will also be signed by the author. More importantly, you will receive a large cache of manila envelopes filled with exclusive print-outs that will never see the light of day: every concept sketch done for the game (~100) and several drafts of the game manuscript, each containing game mechanics, fictional vignettes, and setting secrets deemed too obtuse, too provocative, or too revealing to be deemed fit for a general audience. This is a one-of-a-kind artifact tracking the evolution of a pop anti-fascist platform sparked by the events of 2016 and 2017. All shipping for everything is included in the pledge amount, but these secrets cannot leave the United States.

    This reward is only available to a single backer. You and four of your comrades get everything in the "Hardcover (Premium Color) & PDF Plus" reward tier, except each book is signed by the author. Shipping is included in the pledge amount. You'll also be playing SIGMATA before everyone else, because the author is going to run a final play-test campaign (with a minimum of 4 sessions) for your crew via Skype, Hangouts, or whatever your preferred platform is. Your experiences and input will leave a lasting mark on SIGMATA, and you will be credited for that in the book. Welcome to the Resistance.

    Your story. Your people. Your struggle. Your cause. Beginning after the game's launch, you will begin working one on one with Chad to create an alternate setting module PDF for SIGMATA. The module will be approximately 1/8th the length of the core book, and layout/illustration costs will be covered by Chad. The final product will become a free download for anyone who wants it. This work of guerrilla advocacy is intended to be a means of creating visibility of, empathy for, and solidarity with a people's struggle that either needs a signal boost today, or ought not be forgotten. We reserve the right to cancel this endeavor (refunding you in full, immediately), with no hard feelings, if we determine our objectives are incompatible. We encourage you to contact us prior to making this pledge.
