Backer refers to players who help support the development of Shroud of the Avatar by making a pledge. There are currently two types of Backers:

As part of the Early Founder Pledge Promotion, Early Founders who wish to act as patrons to their family, friends, guildmates, or members of the Shroud of the Avatar community can purchase a pledge as a gift for helping out others to become Founders until April 7, 2014.[1]

There are also Miscellaneous Rewards and an Add-On Store available. Backing should not be confused with shopping the Add-On Store.

When backing SotA you are financially supporting the game and joining in the crowd-source funding model they operate within. Backers can increase their Pledge tiers with the Recruiting bonuses or by upgrading. Backing gives you special in-game rewards and at some levels includes physical rewards as well. To view the rewards available and costs to pledge please click on the Benefactor link.
