Nov 19, 2012 – 10 days left and Greed Monger for PC and Mac ( www.greedmonger.com) is trending for an excess of $85,000 in funding and all kickstarter backers will receive their very own horse as well as two special starter weapons as the first series of stretch goals are reached. With less than $5,000 to go, the completion of the first stretch goal is almost guaranteed, and will unlock the second terrain type: Deserts. The Greed Monger Kickstarter is your only chance to buy land without limits, so whether you want a small estate or a gigantic guild, there's a package for everyone at http://kck.st/TXKUKS.

Imagine, if you will, a land teeming with life; forests, rivers, animals, monsters… and nothing else. No buildings. No people. Welcome to Greed Monger, a land that will literally be shaped by its players, where unlimited opportunity and infinite danger lurks on the horizon of every footfall. Opportunities for land ownership are limited and will allow players to construct homes, castles, hunting grounds, shops, and more.

In Greed Monger the first players will set foot into an unpopulated world and begin building the foundations of civilization. With crude tools made from bones and wood, and huts made of little more than mud and hay, will flourish true civilization that will advance over time. A unique dynamic quest system will establish towns, cities, inns, and more. Players will battle, loot, and tame the land, expanding ever further into the vast wildernesses of harsher climates in their quest for ever better tools to continue their conquest. Combat is not the end, it is merely the beginning, as players will join together to construct massive structures, beautiful works of art, and create the very story within the game.

Greed Monger is a free to play experience, where players can fight, hunt, and gain skills as much as they want. If a player desires they can purchase a land parcel, which will allow them to construct their very own house, trader stall, and more. After this, a player can sell their land and the structures on it in a real cash transaction, giving real world impact to their virtual lives.

The kickstarter event still has 10 days to go! This is the only opportunity to purchase large scale land parcels. After the event closes, purchases will be limited to a set number of land areas. For single players, gain access to the game and a plot of land for as little as $25. For guilds, from $300 you can own a 16 player guild with 16 parcels of land and have your village on the world map at the start. This goes all the way to the grand daddy of them all, a $3,500 Royal Castle on your own 60 parcel island with access to 65 of your guildmates. No matter your budget or if you are in a guild, there's a package for everyone. Find out more at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/appleton/greed-monger-a-crafting-focused-sandbox-mmorpg
