Well now this is what I'm talking about: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1719196889/iceblink-engine/posts/356915
The developer is now taking a second look at stretch goals, and letting community members vote for their preferred set of stretch goals. Here's the official thread: http://www.iceblinkengine.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=10&p=10
So far the winning set is this:
$1,000: +4 classes (8 total), +2 races (5 total)
$2,000: create your own custom classes, races, skills, feats/talents, spells. Add editors to the toolset for creating these customizations.
$2,500: add quest/plot wizard to the toolset for quickly creating basic quests.
$3,000: add script generator to the toolset for easily creating basic scripts without writing any code yourself.
Which is awesome. I don't really care for the rest of the stretch goals so long as it hits the $2000 one :P
Seriously guys, if you enjoyed the Gold Box games and want a good toolset, this is one project to back. Jeremy (the developer)'s been very outspoken and honest about his plans on the Codex and Kickstarter PM, and I've asked him to keep an eye out on this thread, so if it interests you in the slightest but you're held back by doubts, just ask away.
