Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
@Miguel Update is posted! If you wish to talk about the runners up feel free to message Ryan via Kickstarter or Discord for an in depth chat!
@Creator I know" There can be only one" but if you can mention the best 3 I will be happy about it.
@2CGaming Sorry, I just read your earlier comment where you said you would be contacting people through Kickstarter messages. I did the BackerKit survey, any ideas when those messages will be going out? I have yet to receive one.
@Miguel We are working on evaluating the contest results! They are fantastic and I am really enjoying them. We are hoping to have them done soon so we can get you the results, but due to holidays have enough eyes on the submissions to make a good judgement is taking some time.
@Michael Wood. Yes, one of our stretch goals was support for all archetype features in Xanathar's Guide to Everything! On another design note, some of the spell's in Xanathars warrant some consideration for new mechanics and synergies in epic as well, so we will be taking a look at that.
@Aaron M. Surveys should be out! If you missed them for any reason please let us know and we will help you out!
Are we there yet?
Thank you for the update and the PDF! quick question, are you guys going to update the arc types to include the stuff add from xanathar's guide to everything?
Any idea when you will be sending out surveys for the tiers where we input something? Just want to be sure I don't miss it.
We are aiming to have the backer kits locked down by end of today, so you can get your item! If you experience any complications, feel free to message us and we can send it to you directly as well.
No worries! I think we will be able to infer that on your submission, so no need to edit it. we won't disqualify your relic on those grounds. Thanks for letting us know though!
yo when will the backer kits be locked down, I want to download the Epic Legacy Player's Guide but it is saying Your order has not been locked down yet on the download page
@creator I did not include (ring , relic) in my relic submission. Any chance I can edit that to avoid been disqualified?
Cool. Thanks! I'm really looking forward to this!
@mad doctor - we'll be getting in touch with the backers from whom we need details through Kickstarter Message - Ryan's putting out an update later today which will talk through schedule for the next couple of weeks (which will include contacting you guys!)
Just filled in the backerkit survey. I pledged at the "Tell Your Tale" level. Will I be contacted separately for my character details?
So smoke screen to ensure the survey is working the way you want it to before having hundreds trying to work with something that doesn't work. Sounds like something I wish my players would do at the table but it is usually chaos lol
Hey All - before we can make Backerkit live for everyone, we're running a test with a small set of (randomly-chosen) folks. About 5% of you will receive Backerkit info - with the remainder receiving the surveys tomorrow morning (Friday, 12/15)
Congratulations everyone for great KS! Looking forward to receiving this and seeing how the rules work with the othe KS - Tyrants and Hellions. :)
Unofficial SG reached. Yes totally unofficial.
Nice! Another stretch goal achieved! :D
so close to that next SG
@creator I am very interested in the relic competition however is a relic so I need to read your parameters well this weekend to submit something. Will be in contact.
There has been ongoing community discussions about what features we are considering now that we have hit our goal. The idea of a spell contest is very cool, so that is definitely something worth thinking about. Have you check out our Relic Design Contest? The concept is similar, but instead allows you to build a Relic (Epic magic item). I'd recommend checking that out, details here: http://www.2cgaming.com/epic-legacy-design-contest.html
In regards to the stretch goals, because we weren't confident that we would hit the 20k mark until we examined the Kickstarter's state a few days ago, there wasn't as much time as we would have liked to have the community help craft the additional goals (It can take a long time to determine the pricing of a goal accurately, which is hugely important to make sure you folks get what you pay for). We dropped the most recent new ones in our Discord Server a few days ago for folks to give their feedback and help us decide which ones to prioritize (these goals were ones we had done financial analysis for well in advance as alternatives or backups).
If you would like to give your ongoing feedback about what we are working on or pose suggestions directly, I'd strongly recommend joining our Discord server (its much better at facilitating discussion and sharing ideas).

In these last few days and a few weeks after the Kickstarter are the best times to give your suggestions for what you folks would like to see, so please drop in and let us know your thoughts! If you can't do Discord, messaging us directly through Kickstarter is also an excellent way to submit your ideas for consideration and get feedback from other Epic Legacy community members.
Looking forward to hearing from you. The spell competition sounds very cool, so if you have more thoughts on it please share!

Nice I log in to check on pledges and see we broke 20K
(that you said)
He said final, I say, do you remember that some ideas could be considered... :)
Well unofficially I will say that if we reach $22,500.00 @creator is willing to consider a spell creation competition (best 3) to be included. Epic cantrip anyone?
BTW I am... Minority Stock Holder. I have the Charlatan Background and this is my alter ego.
And there is 20K!!!! Is there another super secret stretch goal come????
We need to brake $20k just to see what @Creator will offer.
We are firing on all guns, so to speak, so lets see what happens!
@Dennis S! We made it, so more monsters for all! In regards to your rules question about Tyrants and Hellions, we do not have any immediate plans to have a direct integration between the two books, however....
Within Tyrants and Hellions, there will be a system for designing and building your own villains to have them match that book's formatting, design, and play ability.
And within the Epic Legacy Core Rulebook there will be a system for designing and building your own Mythic Monsters!
With their powers combined, you can build a Mythic villain (or convert one of the pre-made Mythics into a villain) for the ultimate foe to grind your players beneath its heel. Personally I am very exciting to try this out and to see what folks come up with. If you make your own using these systems please share it with us, we would love to see that!
Ryan, the 2CGaming Team.
Looks like we crossed a stretch goals threshold! Hopefully we'll see a surge in the last days that knocks down another.
Woohoo.... Just USD 300+ more before the next SG.... Looking forward to seeing the 6 epic monsters.... :)
@2cgaming: I wanted to ask if the rules here will also scale/add to the material in the Tyrants ans Hellions book as I had backed that as well...
Hey Greg! The book is in full color, we just wanted to make clear that the illustrations added to the book will not be black and white sketches, but rather beautifully colored works. Sorry for the confusion. I'm glad you found us! Welcome, and please feel free to ask any questions you may have. If you have interest, I'd also recommend checking out our Discord community, they are fun folks and can share with you their experiences using this system in games. Join our Discord here: https://discord.gg/2k35fY9
Thank you! Sorry about the delayed response. We've been at PAX Unplugged and things got a little crazy (it was an amazing event though). We got very fortunate with our shipping options. You do NOT need to add your pledge for shipping costs, that will be done separately.
Looking forward to sending you your copy!

Hey there! Never heard of you guys before, but boy am I glad this book came up on my recommended list! Quick question (sorry in advance if this is mentioned somewhere and I missed it): Will this book be black and white, or will it be in full color? Only reason I ask is because Art Expansion I says: "3-5 full color illustrations and sketches [...]". Thanks in advance!
First of all, what a fantastic project !
Secondly, your management about shipping and the shipping fee is extraodinary ! At last i don't have the i ky feeling when i see a project i wanna back, but think "erf, i gotta spit 25 more buck to receive it ...".
Yet i have a question. Should i add now the 7$ for shipping to Eu in my pledge, or will i pay it when the backerkit happen ?
@dtmahanen I think I can best answer your question if I divide it into two sections, as there are two contexts where I think we could talk about races in an Epic Legacy game.
The first is in a world building context, which we are certainly considering. When it comes to putting your Epic game together, a races origin, the leaders of nations, and individuals seeking to fulfill a races destiny could all be related to epic power or characters without too much trouble.
The second part is the idea of providing epic progression for races, or opportunities to improve their racial abilities. As of this moment, we do not have any concrete plans to do this. However, if we reach our highest stretch goal (at $20,000 funding), we will open the floor to the backers and see what people would like us to add to the book at that point. If a lot of folks are looking for an epic expansion to races (such as Epic racial feats, new epic races, potential progression of racial abilities), we will see what it takes to develop and whether or not it fits into the kind of system we are looking to create.
Hopefully that answers your question. Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know!
Ryan Servis, 2CGaming Team.
So, more out of curiosity than anything else, are you going to mention anything about the multitude of races in 5e? I know that there aren’t any traits that go much past level 5 or so, but there are races in multiple different rulebooks, such as the PHB, the DMG, even Volo’s and the EEPG. Is there anything necessary that you would need to include to accommodate for that, or are we good with just using the official rules for stuff?
YAY More Loot
Not wanting to jinx it...but...first stretch goal unlocked!!!!!
So close for the 1st SG! :D
Thanks so much for the answer, I was in just to comment, but now I'll certainly be getting the book. Looking forward to it too.
Well, about multiclass PC, in essence your level is the sum of all classes and there is a multiclass spell progression table. I bet @creator will come with a interesting solution for that issue.
I know that 2nd edition had stats for avatars that clearly showed that those avatars had multiple classes using multiclassing and dual class.
Exploring dual class maybe a way to fix ( or complicated more) this.
I bet that; if allowed, few players may be willing to lvl those multiclass characters like dual class ones just for the challenge of it.
