This Might Be The Stupidest Kickstarter Pledge Of All Time

British Elite fan Drew Wagar has fired up a Kickstarter pledge to help him…afford to back someone else’s Kickstarter pledge.

Saying that he’s an “an enormous fan of Elite”, Wagar – a published author – wants to be able to spend £4,500 in order to support David Braben’s Elite: Dangerous campaign, reaching a tier that would allow him to write an officially-licensed Elite novel.

Some may call this a smart way to get around licensing restrictions, letting him write a book in a universe that it would otherwise cost him a ton to licence.

Others will point out he’s asking for money so he can pay someone else asking for money, and is lubricating the deal with a promise of fan fiction.
