If you're not familiar with Thunderclap: it's kind of like Kickstarter, except that instead of pledging money, you donate a Twitter, Facebook, and/or Tumblr post to our cause. At the end of the campaign – 12:30 PM MDT on September 17th – the above tweet is automatically posted by all our supporters simultaneously, resulting in one unified message with a huge social reach.
It only takes a few seconds to pledge your support. You don't need to create an account, and it doesn't cost you anything.
Once you've joined our Thunderclap, please also consider tweeting/posting a link to elderstargame.com/thunderclap for others to join us too. Feel free to copy any of these suggested tweets if you like, or come up with your own:

If you want to be super-awesome next-level supporter, we included some gifs above that you can attach as well. Feel free to mix and match! They're all under 1 MB so they should be fine for both Twitter and Tumblr. We also made sure our tweets are short enough to fit the image link, so it should be as simple as saving your favorite shot and dropping it into your tweet.
The next six weeks are going to be a wild ride. We really hope you'll join us for it! <3
