    Put up another goal to include advertising or something so people don't lose interest and think "well they hit their goal, don't need anything else".

    This!!
    ASAP!

    You look at it and think...why waste money when they got enough for whatever they wanted.

    Which almost makes me want to decrease the pledge xD

    Your donors demand more goals.

    We'd need to look into some ad costs for that to see what we can get.

    Maybe just make something like:
    Level 1 Advertisement
    Level 2 Advertisement
    ...

    If there are no other ideas.
    But would be nice if it actually atleast somewhat fit the estimated advertisement costs.
    So I guess somebody should do some research on some ad possibilities.
    Still could use some interesting descriptions that would somewhat describe it.

    Current goals and all the patreon thing, has pretty awesome descriptions IMO
    Good job on those for whoever made this thing (Tama?)
    It has soul, it has feelings :)
    And it put things to perspective ;)

    Is there any way I can make a one time donation of $50 or something, or does Patreon only allow you to have monthly donations? I'm always put off by monthly donations, for whatever reason - probably because I'm absolute crap with finances, and therefore tend to subscribe to things long after I stop using them (I think I still have subscriptions to Le Monde and The Times, despite not reading either paper anymore, but I've just been too lazy to cancel them.)

    Oh, is that how it works? Ok, I'll give that a try when I get back to my apt.

    Also, I made a reddit account just for you and for the Empires mod subreddit thing.

    The only thing with the donations for patreon it doesn't take it out til the first of the month, so if you subscribe then immediately cancel you don't pay anything.

    Nobody is ever going to go for microtransactions in Empires. Please don't do that.

    Yay, lets get some advertisements! Populate the hell out of this game.

    But really, put up another goal so people keep contributing.
