The ONLY thing keeping me from backing this is the $25 price point for the .pdf. The game sounds amazing, no doubt, and I would love to run a game like this with my group. I suppose $25 seems steep for a digital version. Is that just me?

Could it be that much because it’s a complete system as opposed to a campaign setting or module? Just curious how many of you feel that to be a fair price.

I am a terrible human being but I just had to check the wiki edit thing and found that the mini oranges comment was on wikipedia for one minute before being removed. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Monte_Cook&type=revision&diff=493924725&oldid=493924550 )

Not that truth should get in the way of a good story :)
