We are back over it by like $300 now, someone might have just mistyped their pledge and fixed it.

A Bear is a 2 mana creature with 2 power and 2 toughness. Hence 2/2 for 2!

Also... in retrospect, it should have been Bear Force Two.

Grizzly Bears which was in the first set and has been reprinted lots.

I wasnt trying to list them all, just give a impression that they reuse it.

Also while those are all 2/2 for 2 and are called "bears" I was going for the reason they are called bears.

Nice...the D&D thing was funded. I might actually learn what all this D&D business is about. I once dated a guy who played a similar game and he tried to explain that game to me, but that didn't work out too well.

Maybe this has already been discussed and I've just missed the info, but...

What's up LRR and The Escapist?
I'm guessing that since the community is funding season 11, The Escapist has / will be dropping LRR's self titled show?

Is it related to the fact that LRR now hosts their videos on youtube for loadingreadyrun.com but also has them appearing on The Escapist's website?

Just stuff that's be sticking in my head lately.

While the Escapist directly funds Unskippable and Feed Dump for shows, they've never actually paid for the LoadingReadyRun sketches beyond the ad revenue. LRR sketches will continue on the Escapist like normal for Season 11, from what I hear. The Escapist was always just another outlet for the sketches to get seen.

Who's willing to bet that one of the $8K backers is Dengler?

I couldn't go higher than $10 'cause I'm poor :(

Nope, the 8k Backers are clearly Russ Pitts, Steve Butts and Susan Arendt, they have all felt a hole in their soul since being replaced in the credits of LRR videos.

As much as I thought there were three, there were apparently only two 8k slots to be filled. So I guess the three of them had to fight it out.

I looked it up, the graphic says there were three. I guess they decided they only could do two.

There WERE 3 at one point. http://www.twitch.tv/loadingreadyrun/b/461622934 - 1:08:00 "Three of these up for grabs."

The Escapist did pay a weekly fee for LRR at one point, but not for a long time, and I feel like we can stand on our own now, in terms of views.

Admittedly a diappointing and slow end to the Kickstarter, but I'm still hoping for second season of crapshots. I bet if the Crew gets to $179,980, they'll find a way to kick in that extra $20 to make second crapshots a thing. I would bet Paul will kick in a Things on my Head every once in a while just for giggles. I'm curious if the $300,000 stretch goal would have been updating Paul's blog (http://somewhatnifty.com/) twice a year!

I guessing if there are minutes left and the Kickstarter is only $20 from $180 000 more than a few people would toss in the money.

Unfortunately they can't do a $5 give away or an auction to lift them over.
