Still in its first day, the campaign has attracted $197,438 in pledged support from 1,213 backers (an average of $162.80 per backer). A retailer-exclusive package is included in the campaign. The package asks for a small down payment, and offers retailers the ability to order any quantity of individual books and slipcase versions once production is complete. Participating stores will also receive a free copy of the Kickstarter exclusive supplement The Trilling Shard for each slipcase set ordered and a free Numenera POP kit.
Backer fulfillment is planned for next June, with release into the trade to follow.
