New Stretch Goals and New Route for Yldiane? YOU Vote!

Hello everyone!

We have been sent a lot of messages, and have also read your comments on the main page of the project... some of you mentioned new ideas for future stretch goals. Many things, and plenty of interesting possibilities! So first thing, thank you for your participation!

Since we want to provide you the best, we have devised an alternative journey for Yldiane. After all, who said she could not change the route she initially planned? This is what makes a Kickstarter project special: it is alive, and it can evolve with YOU!

However, please note that this is not a meaningless choice, because it will alter many of the steps to come! Read carefully what follows and vote for your favorite route...


First, here is the initial itinerary:

Here are more details about each step. Please note those informations are not definitives, new options or bonuses may be added. But here are the main contents of each step:

  • Deh’ad – $40.000

This new threshold gives access to an empty folder to keep your documents. Moreover, it provides the advantages of the High Shadow pledge to Farl Collectors, Tuaille Collectors, Seòl Patrons, and Lords of Shadows.

  • Fionnfuar – $45.000

An additional folder, as well as a set of character sheets automatically included for Farl Collectors, Tuaille Collectors, Seòl Patrons, and Lords of Shadows.

  • Farl – $50.000

This new stretch goal will give access to the PDF of Book 2 Travels and will make it possible to print a special poster displaying one of the sketches realized for Book 0 “Kickstarter Special Edition”. It also gives access to a new great option (those who want it will have to slightly increase their pledge). We will say no more for now, to keep some suspense...

  • Iolairnead – $60.000

An additional complete set of artworks, up to six artworks (at $70k)... you will have to choose between the six illustrations of the Lords of Shadows's characters, or six illustrations from Book 0 Prologue that can be used as game aids. The whole set will be included in a folder.

  • Pass of Gaos-Bodhar – $100.000

The concept of “Ghost Stories” is that you will be the ones to pick the contents of the stretch goal between three options proposed to you.

For the first “Ghost Stories”, you will have to choose between a PDF bestiary of 10 entirely new creatures, OR a complete set of around 30 cards to keep track of Sanity during the game, OR the PDF of The Monastery of Tuath. Tough choice! The chosen content will be automatically added to the following pledges: Farl Collector, Tuaille Collector, Seòl Patron, and Lord of Shadows.

And now, here is the second and brand new route:

Like for the first route, those informations are not definitives, new options or bonuses may be added. But here are the main content of each new step:

  • Broken Stones – $40.000

For this new stretch goal, we propose you a Pronunciation Guide in PDF format comprising the whole Shadows of Esteren glossary. Additionally, this stretch goal would give access to the same advantages as the High Shadow pledge for the following pledges: Farl Collector, Tuaille Collector, Seòl Patron, and Lord of Shadows.

  • Kermordhran’s Citadel – $45.000

We propose you a Game Leader Kit including six copies of Sanity Management sheets, one sheet with the summoning chart for the Miracles of the Temple, another one with the chart for Demorthèn powers, and a third one about Magience. This kit would automatically be added to the following pledges: Farl Collector, Tuaille Collector, Seòl Patron, and Lord of Shadows.

  • Kell – $50.000

The same advantages as the “Farl” stretch goal: it would give access to the PDF of Book 2 Travels and enable us to print a special poster, and make a new option available (those who want it will have to slightly increase their pledge).

  • Carmine Chasm - $60.000

For this new stretch goal, we propose you a board with rigid cardboard tiles (as for a board game) which can be assembled to form a plan to be used for the Loch Varn scenario. Each tile represents one room. At $70K, a second board would be released, this time for the Red Fall scenario. At $80K, based on an excellent suggestion, we would propose you a third board with tokens representing Daols, illustrated on both sides.

  • Pass of Gaos-Bodhar - $100.000

It would be exactly the same as for the other route: you will have to choose between a PDF bestiary of 10 entirely new creatures, OR a complete set of around 30 cards to keep track of Sanity during the game, OR the PDF of The Monastery of Tuath!

Now it's your turn to vote! Let's choose the route of Yldiane!

And now, the votes are open! Which itinerary shall Yldiane take?
To vote, simply post a comment indicating whether you prefer route number 1 (the current one), or route number 2 (the new one). Vote quickly! Voting will last until our arrival at the next Stretch Goal, ie $40.000.
It's up to you now! If you have any questions, do not hesitate!

Thank you all for your support in this great adventure,
See you soon
The Shadows team

      Hi everyone!
      With an overwhelming majority, this is the route 2 which is chosen! So let's go to Broken Stones!
      Nevertheless, due to high demand, we have decided to offer you the set of 6 characters sheets as an option. Please check our last update: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1176616619/shadows-of-esteren-a-medieval-horror-rpg-prologue/posts/346435

      Thanks all of you for your participation and your great support!
      Sincerely,

      Route 2

      Is my choice, though both routes are actually great

      Second route.

    4. razamataz on November 9, 2012

      Route 2 please.

    5. Eric Montoya - Archaeologist of Valoria on November 9, 2012

      Route 2! Is it possible to toss in more character sheets?

      Jose on November 8, 2012

      Route 2. That Game Leader Kit is too tempting

    7. Adam Fink on November 8, 2012

      Route 2
      In my humble opinion, I think it is the better path for enhancing gameplay
      I also agree that adding the route 1 options as addons as part of a future goal would be nice

      Parenon on November 8, 2012

      Route 2 Please

    9. Christopher Wallace on November 8, 2012

      Option 2, definitely want the pronunciation guide!

    10. Missing avatar

      Ashley Hughes on November 8, 2012

      I vote 2, like idea of getting options from 1.

    11. Missing avatar

      Daniel on November 8, 2012

      I vote 2. But I would also like to 2nd Seth Caldwell's request for the ability to get the 1's options as add ons. I would like the extra charactersheets and arts if we get that far.

    12. S.p. Ross on November 8, 2012

      I vote for route 2! I REALLY want that Pronunciation Guide!!!

    13. Missing avatar

      Seth Caldwell on November 8, 2012

      Route 2. Please give Route 1 extras as addons, I will throw more money your way for them!

    14. kornholioefx on November 8, 2012

      Route 2: I really like the idea of Hints as Handouts.

      Route 2 please.

      Route two for me

    17. Ryan Blackstock
      Superbacker
      on November 8, 2012

      Just thought of this: You might be a fan of Shadows of Esteren if:
      - You want Daol tokens, but dont even know what they are (like me!)

    18. Ryan Blackstock

      on November 8, 2012

      Also, I am very interested in what the Kell/Farl ($50k) new option will be!

    19. Stephen McEwan on November 8, 2012

      Route 2, i like artwork but i think route 2 adds options that have more use to a game and we have enough artwork at the moment to scare players for years :)

    20. Jen the Viking
      Superbacker
      on November 8, 2012

      I agree with Aldreo, I want Route 2 with allowing the route 1 as add ons

    21. Sören
      Superbacker
      on November 8, 2012

      I also second the keeping artwork and/or folders as options to rake in more money.

    22. Mirko Hess on November 8, 2012

      Most certainly Route 2!

      And to the team: cudos! Love your reaction to feedback (even if route 1 should win in the end it´s always a good feeling if your voice is heard). Now, this is what I will call a *wow* effect.

      Will second the notion of Dragoslav and Richard that keeping artwork and/or folders as options might rake in more money. As Richard I for one would like to pay extra.

    23. wouter

      I like route 2 the most.

    24. Lifestealer on November 8, 2012

      Route 2, I think

    25. Ralph Kelleners on November 8, 2012

      For me route 2 as well.

    26. Missing avatar

      Dragoslav on November 8, 2012

      Wow, I'm all for route 2. Keeping the rewards from route 1 as options would bring in more pledges, too.

    27. Paul Round
      Superbacker
      on November 8, 2012

      Route 1

    28. Richard P. on November 8, 2012

      I'll second that I'd pay extra for the artwork if it was provided as an option.

    29. Luke Walker on November 8, 2012

      Route 2.

      I would like to see the Daol Tokens ahead of the map, personally. I would love to have the option to add the artworks too, even at cost.

    30. Richard P. on November 8, 2012

      Wow, I do love the art (give everyone involved a huge thank you) but I'm going to vote for Route 2. If we make it to $100,000 its going to be really tough.

      I thought I was done with elections!

      (Vote: Route 2)

      Route 2, but addons from route 1 may help bolster pledges.
