Major fault: This campaign didn't focus enough on Germany -> Henkel would have had a home game in his own country. (I could only pledge via PayPal for example).
He should have made a description of the game in german.
Even PE only had 73k backers (I know it's only a numbers game but still). About Germany, well, I don't think a lot of people go 'hurrah' when they hear the name Guido Henkel, apart from those who are into the games he was involved with (which is, as I said, presumably a very small group). He didn't have a TDE license this time around either; that could really have helped with a German audience (though I'm glad they didn't go that route. PnP never translates very well into digital form).

I was not complaining about a generic setting, but about the overuse of dragons.
You can have a generic setting but an unusual story.
Yes dragons and vikings are clichés, agreed. But about the actual story we didn't even know enough for a prologue, so I'm not judging that.
