I like playing Hartford, and I know you need to figure a way to prepay Cedercrest a season at a time. That said, this feels a lot like jumping the shark to me. I see the following ideas as particularly problematic:

- Paying straight cash for production tags and magic items.

- Paying straight cash for on-board in-game extra plot attention.

- Paying straight cash for XP, aka paid plot submissions. And yes, I am aware that this is already a part of the game, I still don't like it.

I don't see it that way.

The camp itself is a massive cost. But the facilities are excellent, compared to other camps, of which there are very few, in the area. The camp has been very good to us, and we to them.

Its an attempt to have the funds to make their 10th Anniversary something to remember. I have already pledge money to it. Not a lot, only 25 bucks. But to me, this game is worth it. I would have done it without the rewards.

If you think that strongly about the rewards, pledge anyways, and just tell them to keep the rewards.
