Normally we would never do more than one update in a day, but this was such good news we decided not to wait.  We have a financial model for the project that takes into account all of the variables associated with the production, freight, distribution, sales and fulfillment costs.  Our model was built on the assumption that about 33% of our backers would get the expansion.  Well, it turns out that over 88% of you have added the expansion to your pledge.  That is amazing!  

So what does that mean to you? Well, we have a bit of extra margin to play with so we decided to shift ALL of the stretch goals down by $5,000 and the metal coins down $10,000.  We understand this is very unconventional, but as we have promised, we want to give you guys the BEST possible game for your money.

We lowered the stretch goals!

 Work on the Metal Coins

Mac will be starting on the coin art in a week or so.  Here is something he threw together quickly to show the concept of the coins (rough sketches).   We love the direction he is going with the coins.  What do you think?

      Thanks for the kind words. We really do put our backers first and thanks for noticing!!

      This is Daniel. I am up right now crunching the numbers to figure out a way to get those metal coins sooner. I was able to reduce setup costs some by having he manufacturer to the 3d rendering. That means it is LIKELY we will get them before the $50,000 level. That is good news because again, I want to see Greg cry when we get those coins :)

      There are web sites out there that show you how to speak and write in Dwarven, but remember it has to be in a Scottish accent. :) Congratulations.

      It looks pretty good!
      Your choice of Anglo-Saxon runes was a bit confusing though. Apparently you've spelled "Fiwe/Fiuue" and not Five.

      Great update!

      Funny how it's unconventional to actually base stretch goals on how much money you have.

      @Phillip - Me too. I LOVE the high born. It allows you to play a gold strategy and build up a nice engine in turns 1 and 2.

      Y'all are the best! Really excited to have some extra races for Brew!
