Dear backers,

Each and everyone of you is simply awesome. It is because of your enthusiasm and belief in us despite this being our first ever endeavor on KS that we have managed to hit a mark we were simply not anticipating.

The early backers Rebellion Pledge that was supposed to last within 48 hours is what has made this campaign attention worthy and to show our gratitude, Foxtales Studio would want to add a special figurine to the Rebellion Collectors Box to all the early backers who backed us up on the rebellion pledge within 48 hours.

Martikhor
Martikhor

Behold the Martikhor.......an ancient beast that dwells within the swirling sands of the Eternal Plains; the never ending desert by whose edge Oasis Kingdoms are perched. 

Martikhor is the gatekeeper to the only city of Ifreets; Tilism Hoshruba. A city that is invisible to the human eye and even if anyone make it to its invisible gates...they have to go through the Martikhor who has devoured many wayward voyagers of the desert whole. 

Facing a Martikhor will bring our heroes one step closer to end the menace of Ifreet once and for all by taking the fight to them. How they do it is totally up to you.

Early Rebellion Backers.....rejoice. Your Box will now contain 2 full sized monsters.

      Just found out about this project :( seems like it would be a winwin if offered as an add-on. EBs get something for free and Foxtales gets more money from those who have to pay. What the heck is the problem?

      I hope Foxtales Studios is getting the message that this was a bad move. Pouring hundreds of dollars into a campaign and then being told that I’m not appreciated is not a good feeling. I will be pulling out of this campaign if this kind of attitude persists. EBs can have the free mini, but it should be made available to all. I really can’t understand this decision.

      @ Chad E. -
      No worries, thanks. And I totally agree, I want this to wildly successful despite the initial stumbles.
      So you understand my feeling insulted, it was in Foxtales Studios' wording of "gratitude is exclusive". As in my backing after 48 hours with my pledge wasn't worthy of gratitude. As I've said, I don't mind paying for the manticore at all - free to EBs is a wonderful gift - but to withhold game content for such an iconic monster in the regional lore would be frustrating. Especially to those like me who generally pledge "All-In".
      FWIW, I do get where you're coming from, too. As always, comment tone is easy to misinterpret, especially given some of the more irrational ones that fly.
      We're good !

    8. Chad E. on

      @ MikeR - sorry for narrowing in on your comments. The one in the other comments section wasn't directed at you, but at others in multiple KS campaigns.

      As for the insult question, if you feel that way okay. I just don't see the insult personally. If I was backing the Rebellion Reborn and not getting this mini, I wouldn't be insulted but that's me.

      I hope we both agree that we want this to be a successful campaign. :)

      You seem to have your sights set on me and my comments. Reread what I said as it was clear as to what was insulting.

    10. Chad E. on

      @ MikeR - Insulted? How does offering an extra to supporters that backed within a timed pledge insult you? The creators did a great thing by offering the Rebellion Reborn pledge. Had they not added the Reborn pledge and you didn't back Rebellion, would you be even more "insulted"?

    11. Kyle Stewart on

      As an EB Backer I'll provide my own comments. Provide this as an add-on to others. It will help increase the sale of the game and help us meet Stretch Goals. As someone is also likes a complete game, I agree missing out on this awesome mini would be a lose to those who didn't back within the first 48 hours. But thanks for the awesome EB gift. I'll look forward to using him.

      I, for one, am not "fine either way". Give me access to the content for the game my dollars are supporting or don't expect my continued support. Don't diminish the value of my pledge and insult me by saying things like "gratitude is exclusive".

      I don't appreciate being insulted and my contribution to your success being dismissed as less valuable than early backers to the extent that I can't get game content. Especially for such an iconic monster for the setting.

      As I said before, I'm fine paying for it. But make it available. And step up and address the situation sooner rather than later, please.

    13. Chad E. on

      The fact is you can't please everyone. First Foxtales is getting trashed in the comments section by some of the elitist Rebellion backers saying they need something extra for clicking a button within the first 48 hours of this project, especially once the Rebellion Reborn pledge was announced. So Foxtales steps up and give an awesome miniature to the Rebellion backers....now they are getting trashed for not offering it to everyone (at an additional cost). I was a Rebellion backer from the start and was fine with nothing additional, as backing within the first 48 hours is no-risk to a backer....they can cancel their pledge at anytime. I agree it would be nice to offer this as an add-on but it's up to the creators. I'm fine either way.

      I am an Early backer. Good to see a nice model to be an add-on to my pledge. However, it should be better, this would be an add-on. The early backer who backed in the early stage may get some advantage such as receiving product early, but this level of the gap would make late backers get angry which I totally understand. Making a huge difference to the backers aren't good decision to make. Please consider the change in your decision. This is not smart move to make.

      Very cool, just to put in my $0.02, I'm an EB backer, and I'm fine with this being an add on at premium for other backers. Feel free to make it available to them, the fact that I'm getting it with my pledge for free is reward enough.

      First you say that all backers are awesome. Then you only reward early backers? I wonder why? I wan't that awesome monster to. I have pledge for the deluxe version but missed the early bid and think it is very unfair to be punished for it. Please if you really think all backers are awesome reward us all :)

      I haven't mentioned beeing an EB, too. We get one Mantikhor for free. That's very kind. I think every backer should have the chance to buy one as an add on. As an EB I would like to have the option to buy a second Mantikor, cause I love it! So, everybody wins if the Mantikhor is given for free to the EB and becomes an add on, too.

      I would have to agree. I do not like Early Bird bonuses at all, especially discounted prices to those who just happen upon a project before I do.

      If the bonus is offered to all backers at a price, th n that would be fair enough I suppose.

    21. ZupaleX
      Superbacker
      on

      I assume that it will be made available as a purchasable add-on. The opposite would not make sense at all. That's usually how the earlyu bird pledges are working: either discounted price, or a "small" add-on for free that later backers can just get by paying 10 bucks or so.

    22. Luis Lopez Cañas on

      I think we have a good game in front of us but this type of decision (you can tell it's your first campaign) can ruin the project, I hope changes or I will cancel my contribution

    23. Dave the Badger on

      Obviously this needs to be available to all backers. Cool that we, the Early Birds, get it for free, but not letting everybody that supports this campaign have the option to buy it is just weird. I'm a completionist, and I would drop out instantly, if I had no option to get it all, just because I didn't back within a 48h time frame. And why wouldn´t you want to sell as many as possible of these?
      It'll still be KS exclusive, EB's will get their "bonus" and all the other backers, will have the option to get it. So far it's almost 500 backers you're telling; No soup for You, because You're late! Backers that are doing the exact same thing as me, supporting your dream, with their money. I'm sure if you go through with this, that it'll hurt the future of this campaign quite a bit. Please reconsider.

      To chime in, i do agree that making this beast available to those who didn't back the EB as a paid add-on would be the best route to take. That way the EB backers are rewarded, but at the same time other backers have a way to pay for the 'missing content'.

    25. Clint Lee Werner

      That is an amazing model. Can't believe I didn't think such a well-known monster from Persia might make it into the mix. Your take on the creature is absolutely grand.

    26. Shaolin Manny on

      I hate Kickstarter exclusives and I hate timed exclusives. When you get them it feels nice but I don't mind others getting them in whichever way. However if I don't get it because say I wasn't aware of the Kickstarter at the time or I was unsure wether to back or not because more info digging is needed, well then missing out pisses me off and in the long run you have more of the later feeling. Sure there are these few entitled people screaming to their death about all they deserve because they backed at day one and what not but come one, gotta be a bit more reasonable than that…

      Death to the timed exclusives, death to the EBs.

      Maybe do those 10$ off EBs again for the first couple 100 backers, much less frustration for everyone.

    27. Chad E. on

      Wow!

      @ Richard El-chamaa - if someone backed the Rebellion they qualify. The Rebellion reboen was offered after the Rebellion time was up.

      wow I am so OUT, so clearly my Rebellion pledge isn't appreciated. I appreciate your new but that was a huge mistake and not cool at all, even if it became an add on I would still feel a bit insulted. Missing out on a huge mini just because I didnt back earlier, an exclusive ppl really should have known about.

      If you wanted to do a nice surprise you could have given it to all backers but clearly my rebellion pledge and all the add ons ive added dont mean anything so GOODBYE..enjoy your early exclusive backers, im OUT

    29. The Hunter on

      Good move! All this regreting... The EB was limited to the first 48h and they decided to extend it at unlimited time. So you must be happy for getting the EB past the 48h.

      @Foxtales Studios LTD Are you saying that non-EB backers will not have access to this miniature at all? I am an EB, but think you are making a mistake if this is the case. Everyone should have the opportunity to have a copy of this miniature even if it is an addon. We don't want to create self-inflicted wounds that make people feel bad about the campaign.

      I just discovered your kickstarter. To find I will not get this mini because I am late to support you? I won't be pledging then. I have never seen a kickstarter do this before, continuing to exclude late backers from exclusives, especially large ones like this. I just can't back now. I'm out.

      I do agree with James Jones, if you don't have plans to do such, it should be made an add-on so everyone can get a copy of it.

      Thank you very much! As an early backer I would like to politely ask that you also make it available as an add on if possible. The extra money and goodwill will benefit the early backers as well as the entire campaign. Being a completionist for something you are excited for is a very prevalent thing on Kickstarter and I might have dropped my pledge if I hadn’t backed early. Everyone here before the end of the campaign are believers in your vision. This monster looks amazing! I wouldn’t want to hoard it to myself.

      not sure how you add to early bird after a week in it should be either free for all or an add on

    35. gawain_77 on

      I have an EB too, thanks for the additional miniature for free. Please make it available as a payable add-on too, that way we still get it for free but anybody else can afford it if they want. This is a win-win situation, even the EBs profit from the money that other backers will spend to get the beast (more SGs). In addition I strongly dislike the punishment of people that were not here in time, because they are not constantly monitoring Kickstarter. If you are not sure about making it an add-on, just make a poll about it, I'm pretty sure the outcome will be pretty distinctly.

    36. Batei on

      @Foxtales - you are making a huge mistake by not making this monster available to everyone in the KS. I have the early bird, so I am covered and I obviously get it free so woohoo! But others who back the KS should have the option to buy it. This is a dick move. Make the better choice.

      Seems like an insult to those who missed backing within 48 hours but who have stuck around through the frustrations. Gratitude should not be "exclusive".

    39. bragonfly on

      I completely agree with @Darren, there's no way to please everyone..

      As an EB, I appreciate the sentiment, truly. But, as I am also a grown-ass-adult, it really isn't necessary. Don't alienate your late, but still awesome, backers!

      I'm sure they'll come around and make this sweet model an addon at some point. Cross your fingers you non-EB plebs ;)

      I think it's a nice "thank you" to the people who backed Rebellion withing the first 48 hours (and stuck with it).
      But being one of them, I'd have no problems if Foxtales offered this as an add-on for others. To have it retain a bit of exclusivity, make it Kickstarter exclusive ...

      I think everyone's contribution after the initial wave is important, however this KS was successful with the EBs, so Foxtales could shift their focus towards a product and not waiting to see whether they were on or off. Everyone who jumped on this train ride after start is adding to the success, and so can make it that much bigger! :D

      Wow, you guys literally can not win with this crowd XD I get that you are trying to make the as many people happy, but you can't please all the people all the time. As an EB I just want to say thanks!

    44. Rennie on

      I disagree that it is only early backers that made this possible as stated. You run a campaign and each and every backer contributes to the success. Yes you might feel you need to give early backers something because they were lucky enough to learn of this project earlier, but at least then give other backers the opportunity to buy it as an add-on. This way early backers still gets a bonus (free). Anyhow, only my suggestion as I only learnt of this now and feel my contribution is as good as anybody else’s

    45. Alexander Albin

      I can understand providing the EB something special; however, it seems like you should have done so up front and not close to a week in. You are liable to disenfranchise those who missed out on joining in the original timeline(including myself). To be honest I was shocked when I realized the EB didn't cost less than the "Rebellion Reborn" so adding things now to the EB, but making them only add-ons to others makes sense. I really like the looks of this game and enjoy the theme, but seeing things like the Mantikhor drop without an add-on option makes me feel like I might just sit out and wait for the retail drop(assuming it goes to retail) since I'll probably save on retail from some of my memberships.

    46. Deecu on

      I am an eb backer, but i think that it's better for all gamers to have access to that beast. You should consider making it as on add-on!
