Stretch Goal #1: English Longhouse
The English Longhouse (AF307) was originally advertised as a free reward to anyone pledging at the Eagle level ($120) or higher if Unlocked before 1:30pm EST on June 2nd, however, we have decided to open it up to the Moon level ($100) as well. So, even though the pledge button for Moon level doesn't include the English Longhouse, we're tossing it in for free now that it is Unlocked!
Also, now that the English Longhouse (AF307) is Unlocked, it is an eligible Add-On item for only $12.00 each, available to anyone at the Tortoise level ($12.00) or higher.

If we raise at least $1,000.00 over our original goal, our first Stretch Goal will be unlocked and everyone who pledges at the Moon ($100.00) level or higher will receive one English Longhouse (AF307) for free.
If we raise $7,000.00 or more our second Stretch Goal will be unlocked. Everyone who pledges at the Killer Whale ($200.00) or Thunderbird ($250.00) levels will receive one print copy of Long Rifle by 2 Hour Wargames.
Long Rifle is the black powder period immersion game centered on the French and Indian War. Your role is to gain fame and fortune while leading a small band of men through encounters and adventures. You will gain fortune by hunting and trapping wild animals and fame based on your exploits and success. During your adventures you will meet friends and confront enemies. You start out independent not taking sides in the conflict but staying that way may be a challenge.
Long Rifle is compatible with Muskets and Mohawks, the unit based game of the French and Indian War. When combined think of them as the movie, Last of the Mohicans. For the large battle in the field where the Indians ambush the British you would use Muskets and Mohawks. For the smaller actions such as the ending of the movie Long Rifle is perfect. Both sets may be used for the American Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars and any other period that used black powder.
An immersion game is one where the players take the role of individual characters trying to gain experience and rewards that will allow them to grow in abilities. Although immersion games share some common elements with Role-Playing Games (RPGs) there is a dramatic difference. The difference between immersion games and Role-Playing Games is that in an immersion game you have a combat system that can be used alone to recreate small skirmishes in a realistic manner. Think the Last of the Mohicans movie or the Sharpe's Rifles television series covering the Napoleonic Wars.
If we raise $8,000.00 or more our third Stretch Goal will be unlocked. Everyone who pledges at the Thunderbird ($250.00) level will receive one set for free.
If we raise $9,500.00 or more our fourth Stretch Goal will be unlocked. Everyone who pledges at the Thunderbird ($250.00) level will receive one Jail (AF322) for free.
If we raise $11,000.00 or more our fifth Stretch Goal will be unlocked. Everyone who pledges at the Thunderbird ($250.00) level will receive one print copy of Long Rifle: Fort New Hope by 2 Hour Wargames.
Fort New Hope is a supplement for Long Rifle, written specifically for this Kickstarter.
If we raise $13,000.00 or more our sixth Stretch Goal will be unlocked. Everyone who pledges at the Thunderbird ($250.00) level will receive one Saloon (AF323) for free.

Risks and challenges
Acheson Creations has been in the business of making high-quality tabletop terrain since May 2000. Despite our longevity and experience, we are a small company with limited resources and personnel. If this Kickstarter is successful, it will take some time to hand pour each and every item (and that's after making every mould). We have taken this into consideration and tried to make our estimated shipping dates account for the labor time involved. We will strive to deliver as soon as possible. To counterattack anything negative that might delay us, almost every handmade master design has been finished before this campaign even launched... we're just waiting on your support to pay for the production of our American Frontier.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
