All three of these will include a custom parchment map of Amalur, a seven-piece die set, and Destiny Cards. The Collector’s Edition and Signature Edition features select items created and signed by the creative visionaries involved in Reckoning, including Spawn creator, Todd McFarlane, and internationally-celebrated game designer, Ken Rolston.

It's a hefty chunk of change, especially for a new IP that is trying to gain a fanbase, but I'm sure some diehards will have to have these.
