    Yes, you are right. A common hawk or eagle would be too boring and boring patriot, so they had to choose a phoenix. Just the open wings, the sparks and especiall the head look similar on both logo.

    It's a Phoenix because that's what the game is about: Stargate: Phoenix.

    Which reinforces my concern for it and that they should've just called it Stargate: Phoenix the Roleplaying Game, and not the Stargate Roleplaying Game.

    I know. We will see whether the kickstarter will be effective to collect enough money.

    (I believe they have chosen it for the MACUSA as a referral to Dumbledore why it is also an American symbol.)

    Off-topic, but having read up on it, the MACUSA logo is meant to be based on the Seal of the President of the United States, with the bald eagle, despite the image being unmistakably the typical image of a Phoenix (if you Google "Phoenix", most of the images show it), even including flames. In fact, the MACUSA logo also bears an uncanny resemblance to the classic SHIELD logo, which does show the typical American bald eagle symbol

    In the case of the RPG setting, the logo is obviously meant to be the Phoenix Base equivalent of the SGC logo (and probably also supposed to represent the patch on the uniforms, probably replacing the typical SG team designation patch)

    The Kickstarter page is now live -- for anyone interested.

    I don't play table top games cause there's simply no one to play with, but maybe I'll chip in to get the rulebook -- the limited edition one perhaps.

    I'm saving up for other things that are more important right now, and there's absolutely nothing appealing about this RPG anymore. I took a look at the KS page and nothing has changed, so I will pass. But I'm not going to waste more of my own and other people's time, nor causing any problems here by further criticizing the game, it's not going to do anyone good and I've provided as much feedback as I could.

    And I've found a suitable game system for my homebrew game, called Cortex Prime.

    I'm thinking about it, but there are indeed other things I have to think about.

    I just bought a house and I have a bedroom to decorate (and other rooms) and an attick to interior design (my future game lounge).

    The $10 just for the PDF is pretty damn good IMHO. I've backed the $60 level (really not a fan of the special edition). Happy to help support it, looking forward to getting to play since I know my GM is interested. Glad to see it doing so well already though. 4/5s of the goal already met.

    Their initial goal was met. They've just passed 40K.

    Ah... apparently you can't back a project if you're not a member of Kickstarter. That's a bit shameful.

    I have also ordered my own. This is the first time I have supported anything on Kickstarter like a little treat in this silly Covid era. I have even put a Hungarian news on our website and in our FaceBook group. Then I have got an extra email that I can get the Phoenix logo patch for uniforms for additional 5 dollars and some dice sets for 25 dollars. So now thank you, I haven't ordered those.

    If you NEED a kickstarter to make a game, chances are the game is not that good.

    That's the thing. They don't need it, they say so in the brief. They also don't really have that high of a goal. Besides, plenty of successful games have been crowdfunded, whether board, roleplaying, or video. Out of all of the campaigns perhaps not many, relatively speaking, but still plenty in total.

    Hence the emphasis on the word NEED dude
    I think crowdfunding is better suited to expansions and such so you already have a fanbase built in so to speak who has faith in the system. Yes SG has a fanbase, but based on the time I have spent here, not alot of them are gamers, at least in a RPG sense.

    In general, my experience is that the fandom doesn't seem to have much interest in anything other than the TV shows. Comics, novels, games, never really seem to have really received any attention or discussion. That said, the RPG has met its goal - and quick - so there is certainly the want for it!

    Because they've hit their goals.

    I'm surprised they offer the dice up as a reward, since that's a reward that won't be unlocked until they've hit the 125,000 mark. They're currently at the 50,000.

    So far, there are 1015 backers and 22 days to go.

    Edit
    Nevermind that comment about why the dice are up for offer. I just found out how the "pledge manager" works through someone explaining it in the comments. You basically pledge a low number and then add to it whenever something cool becomes available.

    What -- I've never done a kickstarter before. I helped fund a low-budget film once though, and was rewarded with a seat at the premiere and my name in the credits, and a premium booklet with the DVD.

    That still makes me giggle with joy. My name in the credits of a small film.

    They certainly don't but I think it depends on the franchise, and Stargate is relatively small in comparison to other Star's around.

    There are 1015 backers -- I'm not sure that qualifies as a "want"... especially when you look at the amount made so far. It just means, there are a couple of gaters who have money to spend.

    In the grand scheme of things that's not going to keep a game afloat, I imagine.

    I thought about it, and I'll chip in later -- a small amount (even though I'm not keen on having to sign up for a kickstarter account).
