My suggested rewards from Empire of Tears

As I am planning for Empire of Tears I have created my initial list of rewards that I would like to offer with this kickstarter. I wanted to take these one by one so you can understand my reasoning for doing these rewards.

Pledge $1 or more
PEASANT: All donors at this level will receive a personal thank you from Louis Porter Jr. on supporting this project and a computer desktop wallpaper background of the Iconic characters for created by the LPJ Design NeoExodus: A House Divided artists.

Reasoning: Since the $1 is lowest rate, we like to give you more than a simple thank you. I believe that if you give us money you should get something. 

Pledge $5 or more
COMMONER: As per the Peasant with the addition of all donors at this level will be listed in the game credits as a donor and will receive a playtest draft PDF copy of the first adventure of the Empire of Tears adventure saga.

Reasoning: I like letting people see what we get when the writer is finished.  When the writer is finished, it is just the start of the work for getting a project out.

Pledge $10 or more
IMPERIAL COMMONER: As per the Commoner with the addition of all donors at this level will receive a finalized PDF copy of the first adventure of the Empire of Tears adventure saga.

Reasoning: This is the basic cost of the first adventure which we are planning a at least a $7.99 cost so it is a good discount
