New Add-ons + special spotlight!
A lot of you have been asking about Add-ons and today we want to shed more light on the resin add-ons that you can get for our game.
What is the difference between resin and plastic miniatures?
Basically, resin offers the best quality on the market regarding details. It is also better to paint, so if you want your miniatures to look good and you have some spare money, this is an option you should go with.
The resin miniatures will be cast in-house by Awaken Realms, so we can directly control the quality!
We have just added a few new Add-ons: Additional 18 fittings in resin, kids, a dog, a cat and a painted rubble die!
Please note, that prices for painted versions already include the cost of resin miniatures!
How to add them...? Just increase your pledge by given value.
Let's get into more details about the fittings and the rubble die!
In the game you will be able to build A LOT of things, that will enable you to craft and reinforce your shelter or for example heat it should winter come. Normally, you will have cards for that - but for miniatures lovers, we have created this special add-on, that will help you create a greater immersion for the game.
You will still need cards for their statistics, but now you will be able to literally see how your shelter grows!
Please note, that only the resin version is possible (plastic would need huge quantities for production). Also fittings from "Orphans of War" are not included.
the Rubble Die
Now, something very special - a favorite idea from Michał Oracz, TWOM: TBG creator. Please see the description of this die, he wrote in his own words:
"I couldn’t wait when my personal favorite will finally see the light of day - The Rubble Die. It is something entirely new in the world of dice. Why? Here is the answer:
Ordinary dice share a rule throughout all games: each side have an equal chance of being rolled. So if we take a D10, EACH number posses the same probability of being rolled: 10%. Even if we give a special meaning to a certain result it will be rolled (statistically) once every 10 rolls.
In This War Of Mine: The Board Game we needed a die that would introduce a HUGE diversity in chances, with some being as high as 30% and others as low as 3% for a given side. The solution is almost trivial.
We came up with a totally ASYMMETRICAL die.
It has small and large sides and no center of gravity, it also isn’t perfectly flat, it has bulges and looks like a piece of a rubble or debris with some twisted pipes and damaged home equipment parts sticking out of it, more than a die used for board games. Of course it still has geometry that causes each roll to have a unequivocal, clear result and the die will never stop with no apparent result visible.
In the game’s mechanics this Rubble Die represents a decision to sacrifice some time while searching through a location. We risk more than usual but instead we can find something more. You roll the die. In most cases the roll will mean one of the more probable results but from time to time a very hard VERY HARD to get result will be rolled and with it we will trigger an extremely rare finding or an event.
The description of the symbols on each of the die’s sides will be printed on the cards that will come with it. Let me just add that not all result of the rolls will be to our liking. The Rubble Die brings certain risks with it and VERY RARELY a highly unpleasant adventure "
Ruble die will come originally painted, so that you can see everything clearly!
We hope that you will enjoy it!
We also know, a lot of you are waiting for some more details on a few elements and we are trying our best to cover everything - but unfortunately, with the end of the campaign coming, we need to focus on a lot of other things as well and most importantly prepare the Stretch Goals.
Please note, that there will be a possibility to pick up Add-ons from the Pledge Manager level and there you will have all the information needed!
Only 4 days left guys! Lets finish this campaign in a really epic style!
P.S. We are already working on 13th character model, so that soon you will be able to meet the winner!
