    At this level, you'll get an absolute one of a kind item - cover artist Thuy Tran will produce a unique version of the killer's mask on the front cover of the game from your suggestions, and this signed hardcover edition will only ever be printed once. You'll also get a standard hardback edition that you can use for day-to-day gaming. The book will be signed by designer Oli Jeffery (with a dedication if you wish), and you can choose a favourite melancholy horror movie from which we'll include a quote under your name in the backer credits. In addition, Oli will run a game for you and a friend either online or at a convention that he's attending. We reserve the right to ask for changes to your suggestions to fit the tone of the game, and to veto any content deemed to be offensive or hateful.
