As the Hero team put it: "If this project is funded, many things become possible. If not, things get really hard."
Even if you aren't terribly interested in the book, perhaps a funding of $10 would be enough to give the project a little kick.
As far as dimension spanning despots go, this book will be off the hook. Whether or not that fits your gaming style is open to question, but I would like to see more Hero Kickstarter projects to be sure.
While initially I wasn't all that interested in the project, as I have thought through the campaign opportunities I think this could be a lot of fun. Characters could be from almost any dimension, dedicated to ensuring the Empress is unable to conquer any more dimensions. Fighting her could take the campaign to many different bizzarre places, on adventures that rival the craziest 60s and 70s sci-fantasy worlds.
Plus, you could play a reprogrammed Nazi Robot with skull throwers that shoot skulls with laser eyes along side Thundarr the Barbarian, Merlin the magician, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Now seriously, who wouldn't want to play that game?
