Right Hand of Doom

97 likes

For this Kickstarter we decided to give away one of our add-ons as a thank you to all our Early Bird backers. Now that the Early Bird 24 hours is over, this will become a purchasable add-on instead. The add-on we chose is the Right Hand of Doom, based on Robert E Howard’s story by the same name.

So, what is the Right Hand of Doom? Well, it’s a bit of an odd tale. For a Solomon Kane story he is rather peripheral to the main events. Normally he is centre-stage, yet here he watches from the side-lines.

For this reason, we’ve had to tweak things a bit to push him back into the heart of the action – where a hero like Kane needs to be.

The story itself is about a necromancer, and what happens when you cross him (spoiler – it’s not good). Luckily for Solomon, he arrives after the instigating event, so he is not the target of the necromancer’s wrath. Instead, he gets to try to halt this unholy vengeance. Whether he does or not is up to you.

The pack comes with all the Chapter and Discovery cards you need to give you several alternative routes through the tale, and different outcomes to find. It also comes with a miniature of the hand from the title: a hairy monstrosity that really should not be allowed to “live”.

The hand was that of a large man, apparently, for it was broad and thick, with heavy fingers, and almost covered by a matted growth of ape-like hair.

      Small point... "give away one of our add-ons" might be misleading for some. "Reveal one of our add-ons" is clearer and won't be confused with "give away for free".

      @ Beau - maybe it be your right or its right...

      @thomas yes there will be more add-ons, one is going to be revealed sometime today actually :D
      .
      @beau i believe i heard that the left hand was a mistake on the original sculpt and prototype cast (the painted one is the prototype) and has been changed to a right hand to be more accurate to the story/name

      Strange... the all-grey photos of the mini show a right hand, but the painted version below shows a left hand. Is it really a left or right hand in the final version? :)

      Will there be more purchasable AddOns or just included stuff with the core game?

      The EB pledge available in the first 24 hours. So any backer in that time period could pledge for an EB and get this for free. Now that has passed the EB pledge is locked and the regular Puritan Pledge is the only option. If you are on the EB Puritan then you have this, if you're on the regular one and you want it then you'll need to increase your pledge by $10 :)

      They could make it easy on themselves (and do a few backers a favor) and just make 7,000 early birds. At this time, there aren't quite 6,000 total pledges yet according to each pledge level, despite what the total at the top says. That should make for a second big day of additional pledges.

      @skeezix it was funded in 15-minutes! :D and about the EB, rather than giving a discounted price like most KS's do, mythic gave EB's a $10 expansion for free (so no, you don't need to order the expansions separately :D)

      Wait.. this KS started on the 12th? So, likely I did make the EB then?! I bought on the 13th.

      Jeez, thats a fast KS to be fully funded on the first day?!

      I just found this KS today, and saw the early bird option so picked it. Like most people, since the only people on the non-early-bird are in the dozens of count :)

      Are you going to bump us all over to the non-EB? Need to know, if I need to order this expansion separately.

      Personally, and greedily, I think you need to leave it active for all of us who jumped on it, within 24 hours of seeing the KS existing ;)

      sorry, that should be mythic, not maze!

      @edwin unlike what many other KS's do with having limited EB spots (normally something like 500) MAZE went with a 24-hour EB, so an unlimited amount of people could get it, but after those 24-hours it's no longer available even if someone drops their EB (sorry if i misunderstood your question)

      What is the backer number range who are eligible for the early bird?
