Endzeitgeist Pathfinder 2.0 Support

$900 of $800 goal

Raised by 13 people in 12 months
Reviewer Extraordinaire -- Endzeitgeist [ http://endzeitgeist.com/  ] -- is well known for his vast reviews of not just tabletop roleplaying games but very specifically the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, especially all the Third Party Publishers (3PP) that release Pathfinder-Compatible books. 

With Paizo's recent announcement that they will be releasing a Pathfinder Second Edition has a lot of people wondering "how good is it?" and wondering also how it will work with 3PPers, and wondering about giving Paizo the right kind of input during the Pathfinder Playtest starting this August 2018.

It "makes sense" to have the person who has reviewed over 3900+ of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game products to not only give his 2 cp, but to tell us what he thinks of it! An added bonus would be that he could even likely make company-specific, product-specific suggestions for those Third Party Publishers that are interested 

But Endzeitgeist can't do these playtests alone. He puts a LOT of time into his reviews, and it shows, but it also doesn't come free. He has a Patreon
[ https://www.patreon.com/user/posts?u=433233 ], and that helps immensely but asking Endzeitgeist to take part in the Pathfinder Playtest and its 7+ sessions is asking for hours of work from him.

In particular, Endzeitgeist would consider that each session would cost him $100 US. In addition, for him to get even the basic physical copies of the books (not a necessity but a powerful preference) he'd need to raise $75 for the physical copies + shipping to Germany. 

Overall then, we're looking to raise at least $800 for 7 sessions + physical copies of the books. Raising more would be AMAZING and could likely lead to more sessions or more detailed posts and discussions.

In an original post about this idea, it was thought that if each session can be thought of as $100, then one or more people or publishers could band together and "sponsor" a session. Endzeitgeist will mention -- in the way he posts that a particular review was a Prioritized Review on his website -- that a particular company or group is sponsoring this session and if they're so inclined he can link to his reviews of their product on his site etc. 

So please consider supporting this endeavor today!

Hello there everyone!

THANK YOU for making this GoFundMe such a success! Today I went and send Endz $869.99 (what was left after the GoFundMe fees). I will be closing this GoFundMe today and Endz will be making a post about the whole thing here shortly.

Thanks again!!!

Hey Everybody!

First off, thank you to everyone who has donated! We're over halfway to our goal and that's grand! Lucus & I have been chatting with Endzeitgeist, and we think the best thing would be if we can hopefully hit our original goal of $800 here just after the pre-order window opens at Paizo.com for the Pathfinder Playtest books (which Paizo pushed back to March 27th now, not March 20th). So our hope is to have raised the full $800 by say April 1st or 2nd, close the GoFundMe, order Endzeitgeist his books for pre-order, then I'll transfer the remaining $700+ to him.

That doesn't have to be the end of "funding" though -- that just ensures that he absolutely will be doing the core aspects of the Pathfinder Playtest starting August 2nd. Between the end of the GoFundMe & August, however, Endzeitgeist is still going to be accepting funds (specifically via his Donate button on his website) which can be earmarked for additional write-ups and playtests of other materials (including the Pathfinder Society scenarios and quests released). Endzeitgeist will make a post about that all once we close the GoFundMe and he'll explain what he will be doing and what other things he's thought of that he could do (he's also always open to new suggestions!).

Just so everyone is on the same page, some of you might be wondering "Why end the GoFundMe in April if the Pathfinder Playtest isn't until August?" Well, there are a few reasons for this, but the biggest one is TIME. Between now and August, and even going through August till November (the currently expected "end point" of the Pathfinder Playtest), Endzeitgeist is expecting to still be trying to do his normal workload of reviews. Whether he'll try to "get ahead" and just be releasing reviews during the Playtests that he did earlier, or if he'll release more reviews than normal and then only do the Playtest posts on endzeitgeist.com and the Paizo forums etc. when the time comes is something he'll need to decide. We want to give him the next 4 months to "figure out" what works best for him and his playtesters so they can devote the proper time to the Pathfinder Playtest and his write-ups (as well as filling out surveys, participating on forums, etc.) but he can still keep his Patreon supporters and regular readers happy as well.

Regardless, thank you, everyone, for supporting Endzeitgeist on this!

Who am I? My name is Troy Daniels, and I work for a few game companies (Fat Goblin Games and d20pfsrd.com Publishing). I am simply facilitating this. 100% of the proceeds from this gofundme will be paypal'ed over to Endz once the campaign ends. I will make absolutely NO money doing this. I do it because he is a pretty awesome dude and he's done a lot for the gaming community as a whole. :-D
