This is the second part of a 2-part episode; you can find the part 1 here.
We continue our weekly calls with Ed and keep following his efforts to crowd-fund the expansion of his science-fiction themed tabletop roleplaying game Era: The Consortium Secret War on Kickstarter.
As the project had just recently passed the £1,000 mark at the time we spoke, Ed gave us a few more tips acquired from his experience of running Kickstarter projects, including what not to do.
We pursue the conversation to discuss how his games company, Shades of Vengeance, started supporting other tabletop roleplaying games creator to complete and finance their games and share them with a wider audience. This started at the Anime North in Toronto a few years ago and they have now successfully supported several games that Ed talks through.
In the last conversation, we wish good luck to Ed for the final days of his Kickstarter project and ask him a few of the now traditional Ice Cream for Everyone cool down questions.
