Kickstarter is risky. Anyone who backs a kickstart attempt should understand that they may see nothing in return for their donation.

Kevin Siembieda, the Palladium guy, has always been seen as shady. His reputation among fans is not good. I'd never give him money without seeing the finished product first.

BTW, the Palladium RPG system is really awful. I used to run games of theirs back in the '80s and '90s, including Robotech, their DnD-like base fantasy system, and Rifts, and I often had to re-write the rules to have them make sense. I think I still have all of the original books somewhere.
