Campaign Update #18 - New Crew has Arrived at the Tavern
Hi there backers,
Welcome to another edition of the weekly update. As mentioned in the previous update, we're moving into the white box sampling process with the manufacturer so we're fiddling with a few components to see what we can do to streamline the whole process and get a physical mockup into our hands so that we can check the final weight and dimensions of the finished product.
In the mean time though, we have some brand new art! Jamie has just put the finishing touches on the three new crew members that were added via the Thieve's Guild and Auction House expansions.
Say hello to the Bodyguards. These guys will protect you from the devious machinations your fellow blacksmith guilds piece together in the Thieve's Guild expansion. If you have a Bodyguard in your crew, you will be protected from theft but only one will be included in a game with 2 or 3 players, and the second is added to the crew deck during games with 4 - 6 players, so make sure you grab one of these helpful individuals as soon as you see them drinking their hard-earned pay away in the Tavern.
Just like the Thieve's Guild, the Auction House expansion brings a new crew member to the crew deck. Here, you'll see the Appraiser, forever inspecting the final goods against their contracts. By modifying the roll during the precinct action in the Auction House, the Appraiser is a big payoff to any guild looking to make a reward out of the gamble that is the open market.
That's all for this week. Don't forget, if you pledged for a $1 during the campaign and am looking to up your pledge for a full copy of the game, let us know via Kickstarter's messaging system and we'll get the invoice out to you as soon as possible.
Thanks again for making the game a reality.
