I have tried to contact Dave Phipps at Pulp Alley regarding their current kickstarter to to avail!! I have several questions that I need answers to so that I can decide how to support this kickstarter. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Below is my e-mail to him:

Dear Dave
I have been reviewing all of my Pulp Alley purchases, but have yet to be able to play a game due to a variety of situations occurring. Hopefully you can clear some things up for me concerning your current kickstarter.

Mostly it deals with the China Station component. Could you provide me with a bit more information on what China Station is all about? Further, if I am correct, are these scenarios combined from all the ones that were available previously on your website but now in a book form? Is the setting in China? Also, the China Station cards, which are an add-on, are listed at $59 USD? Do you need the cards to use for the China Station book?

Finally, in order to get the Stretch Goals, it doesn't matter what is purchased as long as it is over $75 USD?

I happily supported your last kickstarter, and have been painting my pulp figures from a variety of sources to use with these games. What can I expect with the Pulp Alley Character Book? Are these figure stats made up specifically to support only your line of figures or can they be used with other figures (Pulp Figures, Copplestone Castings, Foundry, etc.) as well? Any further information would be greatly appreciated.

I eagerly await your reply and want to thank you for taking the time to respond to these questions.

If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much in advance.

Try emailing him again. My experience is he is very quick to respond.

I would be very wary if a hitman contacted me.

I'm not Dave, just another backer.
The cards are included in the books/pdfs to be copied or printed, the seperate cards are optional. The book is a compilation of the previously released China Stations monthly scenarios.

From the kickstarter: If your pledge includes at least $75 USD of rewards then you qualify for the stretch goals. Note there is no pledge manager so you may want to get all your selections decided before the end of the campaign.

The few preview pages I helped review used Bob Murch's Pulp figures. But of course you can use any figure you like, as I do.

Thank you for the replies, and especially Royal Air Force for the detailed response. Ordering up front in case of no pledge manager is a great idea too.
p.s. OACS74…hilarious response, and oh, watch your back!! LOL
