Thought it was a nice touch to ease the wait. Handsigned letter from Steve Jackson and Daniel Jew.

(I backed at the $1977 level).

I have constant trembling hands, that was the best I could get after numerous tries. Note that I just uploaded it to my personal gallery, I wasn't going to try getting it through geekmod...

I actually entered at that level because at that time they had no international shipping options, but the level said that they would include international shipping anyway :-). Probably wouldn't have done it after the other shipping options was announced but at that time I had already submitted my picture for the artwork (and signed my model release :-) - yes they actually sent me a form to sign for letting them use my image in marketing, that's both cool and strange at the same time :-) ).

Thank you :-). Steve Jackson asked what I wanted to be and I mentioned that I probably wouldn't be an officer since I have glasses but he responded "this has been a long, filthy war and nobody tells an officer he can't wear glasses" :-).

EDIT: I should of course also thank the artist :-).

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Well...

Good to know that $2,000 still buys something.

US Dollars isn't really what it was used to be, didn't you used to think that Canadian dollars was worth about half of yours?

Today they are about the same...

In Sweden we used to pay 8 SEK for a dollar, 10 SEK for an Euro and 14 SEK for a pound.

Currently we pay 6 SEK for a dollar, 8 SEK for an Euro and 10 SEK for a pound.

The worth of a dollar? It's still in the eye of the beholder. (Or reciever, whatever...)

Getting your portrait in a epic version of an epic game? Priceless!

Magnus,

Are you going to assemble the OGREs on this sheet? and post pictures of those as well?

Some of us have to wait until August to be mailed anything!

Thanks!
