A stretching legacy
Well, due to our heroic acceleration in pledges in the last couple days and the anticipated 48-hour extravaganza, I decided to go ahead and give you all the stretch goals up to $300,000.
You deserve it, after all.
So what do we have coming up? What was I just so stupidly excited about?
Well, at $280,000 we have none other than Rob Daviau joining us to write a guest scenario! You know Rob Daviau, right? He made a little game called Risk Legacy. And also Pandemic Legacy, which is probably the most hotly anticipated Essen release this year.
Yeah, that guy. I got a chance to talk to him on the Game Design Round Table podcast with Dirk Knemeyer earlier this week, and he was so excited about Gloomhaven that he hardly let Dirk talk at all. (The podcast episode won't be aired until after the campaign ends, but I'll let you know when it is.)
I asked Rob if he'd be interested in designing a scenario, and he was very happy to do so. And now I'm happy, and hopefully all of you are happy too!
Rob's Legacy games have obviously had a huge impact on the development of Gloomhaven and I am totally honored that he has decided to contribute a scenario. It's funny because during the podcast he said he was looking forward to actually playing a game with a persistent world instead of having to make it, but now I've roped him into helping make it anyway, even if it is just a small part.
After that we've got two more fan-made scenarios. We have over 20 submissions currently and a lot of them are really good, so I didn't see any reason not to include a couple more in the box. Plus you've still got the weekend to submit more scenarios! I'm going to try to make decisions on Monday, so get on it!
Lastly, at the risk of being predictable, I've made another character class unlockable at $300,000. I felt we really needed a 6th starting class to round out the team, but "starting class" is all I'm saying for now. Expect more teases in the days to come!
All right, I am getting in my car and driving to Michigan now. Try not to burn everything down while I'm gone.
