It seems that you're using an outdated browser. Some things may not work as they should (or don't work at all).
We suggest you upgrade newer and better browser like:Chrome,Firefox,Internet Explorer orOpera

Also because no one's talking about it but a few places, mostly forums. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out most of the backers are Ars Magica players, or fans of Academagia.

But they probably would have fared a lot better if they'd come up with more information at the start :(

So I PMed Black Chicken Studios to ask if they'll be starting a second KS. Here are their responses (they're good people, and very quick to respond):
BCS: Round 2 [of Kickstarter] looks, well, not likely, but it's almost criminal that a project like this shouldn't fund, so...;)

Me: What are your plans once this campaign is over? Will you start another KS?

BCS: Well, unfortunately economics probably will prevent us from doing anything with the property. We'd love to make an Ars Magica game, but we don't have all the resources (or else we wouldn't have come to KS.)

We're working on our own games at the moment, so if the campaign isn't a success, that is probably the next time you'll hear from us. :)

Me: By the way if you don't mind me asking, why is a second Kickstarter not likely?

BCS: Sure- it's purely a matter of resources. If there are not enough patrons to fund Ars Magica in one round, will there be enough in a second? It's possible, and it's also possible not.

We could trod that path for quite some time; instead, it's probably more productive for us as a company to work on our in-progress projects. :)
Probably going to be their last update before the campaign ends:
