BIG UPDATE: Fomorians, new streaming and... Level up your rewards!

Posted by Gato Salvaje (Creator)

The Fomorians are the original immortal inhabitants of Ireland. After a long, bloody war with the Tuatha de Danaan, they were exiled to a small part of the Mourian Otherworld. Most humans immediately find them sinister-- Fomorians are giants compared to all others, and their exile has forced them to subsist by turning to cannibalism. Their king, the largest of the giants, has the ability to regenerate, so they feed on him in order to survive.

Fomorians are big... REALLY BIG

Despite these horrors, the Fomorians are a deeply honorable people, and they've accepted their defeat as their destiny.

Half-Formorians are the descendants of both the Fomorians and the Tuatha. They are the tallest character race that you can play in The Waylanders.

If you play as a Half-Fomorian, your character will have grown up a second class citizen in the Mourian underground, with little knowledge of the outside world. You'll look human enough to most people... though perhaps incredibly tall and a bit odd. As a vassal of the Mourians, you're their gun-for-hire mercenary who has fought on their side in various conflicts throughout time. You arrive in Ireland as a bodyguard, but also as a warning-- that the Mourians remember what the Tuatha did to the Fomorians.

By the middle ages, the Fomorians have overtaken their Mourian jailers and now rule the Otherworld. When humans peek through the old, decrepit Mourian doors, all they can see are monstrous figures surrounded by endless fire.

LEVEL UP YOUR REWARDS!

We’re almost at the middle of our Kickstarter campaign, and we need YOUR help to spread the word!  

If every backer like you referred just one new person to the campaign, we could make our goal. So....

For each new backer you refer who ends up contributing to the Kickstarter, you’ll receive a reward of $30 credit! Yes, those rewards stack!

You can use all your reward credit in the pledge manager at the end of the campaign to get cool add-ons or even upgrade your reward tier.

NEW LIVE STREAMING!

The first live streaming was great! We had a lot of viewers, interesting questions… It was a good way to connect with all of you. And we want to repeat. This Wednesday, October 31st... we'll be on Youtube Live again!

We’ll show new content, and you can also make questions about the referral program.

Hope you like the good content about races, the referral program and the new live streaming!

      I don't really understand the referral link... the link that I received (to be shared with friends) sends my friends to my referral page on thewaylanders.com, not to the Kickstarter campaign page... that will only confuse people, make them leave that page again, then they will browse to the Kickstarter instead... and if they sign up, there's no link to my referral. So how is that supposed to work?

      I think it's better if we have some trendy features to demo. E.g: Interactive environment, physics destruction, environmental effects on the combat, time-based story/quest (like Atlus's Persona, Pathfinder: Kingmaker), moral alignment, choice-consequence, ...

      Hi Jaime, thanks for your comments! We have done the numbers and we are not losing money. We are doing this not only for the extra money but to increase the community that is even more important for us.
      At this moment it is very important to get more people involved, and that is the reason to ask for your help.

      Loving the Fomorians! Used them in my last d&d campaign (they are available as monsters) but the lore here makes them even more interesting.
      Can't wait to play this :)

      I'm not sure about the referral program. Are you sure you will not loose money? The final reason of the campaign is to success in financial support for the game. Many campaigns don't do right the math and loose money at the end. I hope this new option don't do these for your game. Maybe you can make only digital rewards available for the extra "money". Well, I hope you know what you're doing!
