Contributor levels for 2017

With content on the World of the Fifth Sun blog, RPGNow, and Aioskoru Website on Google and with this being a new year, I wanted to expand upon a contribution tier system which we tried for November's 5e x 5 launch. I'm going to try expanding it across all of the products that I made or helped make. Anyone who has bought or contributed to any of the products already counts has them count towards these amounts and may already have qualified for the contribution benefit(s).

Because of this, I am creating a structure within each and one across all four categories. Next year, these amounts may increase to due to new product and/or price increases.

It can be categorized into 4 major categories.
A) Solo Gaming (SG)
B) Aioskoru World (AW)
C) 5e x 5 (5x5)
D) Map making (MM)

and one combined tier
E) Ultimate Contributor (UC)

All purchases and contributions from the first July 2016 purchases up to now and those into the future are included when I figure out who is qualified in the current tiers including bundle packages.

(SG - AoO) $1.50
Solo Gaming contributions include the Ezine #1, Solo Game Engine, and Fact Generator. The current tier "Army of One" (AoO) is set at $1.50 contributing to any or combined among those three. This level will let you gain early access to upcoming solo game products such as the Flexible Story Engine and the Drama Escalator for the 2017.

(AW - FJ) $2.50
Aioskoru World contributions include the Aioskoru World Guide, Aioskoru OGL Maps, Aioskoru Outline maps, and the Aioskoru World Atlas. The current tier "Fantastic Journey" (FJ) is set to a $2.50 contributing to any or combined among those four. If you bought the Aioskoru World Atlas at any price or in any bundle, you are automatically in the FJ tier. This level will let you gain early access to upcoming campaign material for the 2017.

(5x5 - RC) $4.00
5e x 5 contributions include the 5e x 5 OGL SRD, Characters, Spells, Monsters, Equipment & Treasures, Combat & Conditions, Ezine #1, Future, or Modern. The current tier "Rules Conversion" (RC) is set to $4.00 contributing to any or combined among these nine. If you bought the 5e x 5 core, then you are automatically in the RC tier. This level will let you gain early access and a 30% discount on upcoming titles for 2017.

(MM - DC) varies
Map making contributions so far only includes the book Quick free world maps using GIMP filters and Donjon fractal maps. If you have that book, you are in the "Design Cartography" tier. This level will let you gain early access to and a 30% discount to the planned upcoming Intermediate free world maps book.

All Four Contributor categories
Ultimate Contributor (UC)
If a person contributes to AoO + FJ + RC + DC = UC for 2017
