Thank you all for stepping up. Emotional bribery, eh? Ah well, whatever works... :D

@mugs - 50$ comes up as a little under 40 GBP based on todays exchange rate

And by the way - in case we do NOT reach the 5000 here as a community, then I would naturally encourage all of you to go ahead and pledge your amount individually nonetheless ;)

Been thinking about this a bit more and decided to invest £100... so I have pledged £25(+£5) for the TRSuite Medipack and will contribute £70 to the trle-community pledge... If it fails to collect enough amount then I will just simply manage my pledge to change the "pack" to higher one. That said you can count on me Michael :)

I really hope that it reaches its goal, I am in love with TR1-3 music since my childhood :D

Hey there! I'm not sure what you meant, Michael, when you said "shift" my pledge, I have pledged £80 to the kickstarter campaign, please advice :) I'd love to do anything to help!

Well, "shift" could mean you remove your current pledge on the kickstarter site and instead send me the money as a component of the larger trle.net pledge - or - as others have commented above, you keep your pledge as is and pledge some more for the trle.net cause - or a mix of the two... whatever you choose...

I do fully recognize that "shifting" implies you lose the individual reward you maybe pledged for and only get a lucky draw chance for one of the rewards included in the sponsor reward - hence not an easy choice :)

I see, well in that case, I'll opt out of shifting my pledge... however I'm happy to match my pledge to trle.net's pool :)

Just posting to keep this more to the top of the Chat Forum.

Appears that my assumption was right indeed that only a very small "hard core" group of fans has remained after all these years who is interested and willing to provide monetary support for such a unique project.

Not to blame anyone for either not being able to afford a pledge or simply not being all that much into the nostalgia of orchestrating the good old TR1-3 tracks. We all have our preferences and passions.

I will wait until the end of the week and if we do not move the needle much further here, I will encourage those of you who posted here in this thread to pledge your amount directly at Kickstarter...

also there's really nothing to lose if this didn't get funded, we'll get our money back - just... show me where to throw my money at!

@Jackie, well, technically, you are not getting your money "back", if this does not get funded, as you only actually spend the money you pledge as and when the funding does get achieved/confirmed ;)

@Matt, yes, yes, the rich benefactor! Been waiting for that kind of person all my life for a variety of reasons - the Tomb Raider Suite being one of the lesser causes in that regard, I guess.... :D :D

Maybe it just needs more encouragment :D
Like for example this Nathan`s channel https://soundcloud.com/nathan-mccree, there are a few tracks uploaded by him as to what to expect in album, in addition they are all extended, just take a listen and enjoy :wink:

We will have the annual TR Meeting over the coming weekend, so I will leverage that to try and pull a few additional pledges from people there...

In the meantime, and not counting Matie or Jackie or sonny... who have pledged directly, my account of pledges here in this thread is roughly at 420 GBP, so well short of the 5000 target to achieve "sponsorship" level), BUT - if you are all good for your respective commitment mentioned above, then I will go ahead and add another "trle.net pledge" on all of your/our behalf (on top of my own) and will make it a generously rounded up "Dagger of Xian" pledge including the recently added T-Shirt option, so around 500+ GBPs
As before, I will then distribute the related rewards among the contributors per lucky draw (assuming we pass the threshold in the end):

"Signed concert poster from the World Premiere performance
• Signed first page of the score for The Tomb Raider Theme
• Signed concert programme from the World Premiere performance
• Signed Limited Edition Deluxe Tin Double CD of The TR Suite
• Signed Limited Edition Double Vinyl Album of The TR Suite
• Special Thanks credit in the CD booklet
• Digital Download of The Tomb Raider Suite
• Invitation to a Composer Buffet Reception
* T Shirt"


Obviously, I will only request the money transfer from each of you AFTER the project is taking off (Monday, Jun 26) - makes little sense to return the money to you in case it fails.
So, I trust you will not let me down later on, as I am forwarding the money first here... :D

I don't think this one should be part of the lucky draw... :D

But yeah, I'm absolutely in.
