Have a question?
In fact, if the rules are ready, even if the book is still in proof-reading stages, I will surely run a game of Dragons Conquer America at Dragonmeet.
Dragons Conquer America at Dragonmeet. Perfect!
Good to hear you will be at dragonmeet again this year I look forward to seeing you all again
@Netobvious: Happy to catch up with you at the Expo, we hope to see you again at Dragonmeet and have the actual printed book in our hands!
If everything goes well, do expect to see more continents!
@LD_Matt: Nonsense! We only write about things that actually existed, such as feathered serpents, ice giants, immortal monarch or Christian vampires ;)
Dragons Conquer (the hidden continent of) Atlantis?
"Dragons Conquer The World" and I feel to happy to be part of this wonderful line of games from Burning Games.
"Dragons Conquer America"
"Dragons Conquer Europe"
Dare I dream of "Dragons Conquer Asia" and "Dragons Conquer Africa" too?
Hope new fans got attracted to Burning Games at the expo. It was nice to meet the team in person, though I missed chatting with Carlos due to other engagements, but happily met with Helio (whom I recognised from the video promotion of Dragons Conquer America).
Hey @everyone! We haven't posted an update in some time, sorry about that! We are working super hard on many fronts and I just want to let you know that everything's looking super. Today my colleagues Helio and Carlos are at the UKGE so please visit their booth if you are around. I'll follow up with an update soon :) [Jon]
No problem. I only let know my prefer language.
@David: El alcance de este proyecto solamente incluye la edición en inglés, como hemos intentado transmitir en todas las comunicaciones sobre el mismo. Esperamos que no te suponga un problema, y si no es así estudiaremos las opciones que haya :)
(In English for everyone else: The scope of this project only includes the English edition of DCA. We hope we made that clear enough throughout the project page and news pieces!)
@Everyone: we have an interesting update coming up soon. Stay tuned!
If you can, please senda me PDF in spanish languaje.
Thanks for all.
Muchas gracias desde España.
No, we are still a bit far out. Don't worry, we'll keep you updated through the project updates when the time comes!
Have these vouchers for the PM gone out, I still haven’t seen one?
@Larennor: Sorry about the misunderstanding. The actual PM platform is launched, yes, because it is our online store! We are using it to collect late pledges, and in case you are curious, you can find a link at the top of this KS page.
When we do launch the actual PM phase (which hasn't happened yet) we will send each of you a custom voucher code. You will then go to our online store and redeem your pledge using that voucher, select any add-ons you may want (including any FAITH products if you are so inclined!) and pay for the shipping costs. Then, as soon as everything is ready, we will send it to the address you will need to specify when you complete the PM.
Hi guys, congratulations for the great work.
I understand, from comments below, that the PM was published. Apparently I didn't get a link for it (though I usually get KS updates from this campaign). Can you please sort it out for me? Thanks, already.
That makes a lot of sense. Thanks. :) I like the idea of Arthur being portrayed as a consummate leader: I feel like too much modern Arthuriana (T.H. White, for instance) follows after Mallory in making him well-meaning but not particularly bright. ;)
As you mention, the origin of the myth isn't Christian and the myth has a lot more interesting pagan bits than Christian: Merlin, Morgana, the lady of the lake, Excalibur... plus, his legend ends when he enters Avalon, so we think it is more interesting and fitting that our version (a returned Arthur hundreds of years) later isn't Christian.
Also, we will be basing DCE's Arthur in the one from The Warlord Chronicles, by Bernard Cornwell. In DCE, we'll have Arthur marching out of Avalon to reclaim his true origins from the Christian retelling and appropriation of his legend. Arthur himself does not consider himself a pagan, he plays and charms both sides and he is followed by people of all beliefs. He is, above everything else, a natural born leader, as well as a cunning strategist, and as such he never shows his whole hand.
Wrong campaign, I know, but a quick thought about Dragons Conquer Europe: any particular reason you chose to make Arthur representative of pagan Britain? I realize that the legends predate the Christianization of Britain and have a lot of Celtic pagan elements to them (the Lady of the Lake, the Green Knight, Merlin, etc.), but conversely he and his Round Table became associated with the quintessential Christian knights and the very picture of chivalry (creators of chivalry, in some versions of the tale). Just curious what your thought process was behind that decision. :)
Hi there Alessandro! I have just sent you a PM with instructions.
hello guys and congratulations for the great work!
Where can we get info about the late pledge? :D I think I have to pledge something more than before ;)
Hello folks! We have taken a couple of days to regroup, and we will be back with more news early this week. We just wanted to let you everything is going as planned and that we will need your opinion about a couple of things. No spoilers tho!
@Brian: Answered through PM, but for everyone else's reference: The shipping information is in the bottom of the campaign page itself. We will charge for shipping later on, in a few months, when we are almost ready to begin fulfillment.
To ensure I have funds in place, I need some Shipping clarification. Projected stated "Please refer to the Shipping section for more information on delivery dates and shipping prices." Noticed when I made my pledge that Shipping was 0 for US, is this accurate? Has shipping already been charged, or is that coming later?
@EVERYONE: thank you for an amazing month and the awe-inspiring final 48h. We are going to rest a bit now, but tomorrow we'll be back with more information on the ongoing creative process of the game. We will work super hard to make this game something memorable. THANK YOU.
And we end with two human life bringers versus two monsters. A balanced tango in the dark, I would say. O:-)
@Jesse Roberge: Not so about the north! The Anasazi were long gone by the 17th century, but there were still many rich civilizations in North America. In the Southeast and Mississippi watershed you have the Mississippian Mound Builder cultures. In the Eastern Woodlands you have powerful paramountcies like the Powhatan, distinct from the Mississippians. Further north you have the Iroquoian leagues like the Five Nations Iroquois, the Huron, the Neutral, the Erie, etc. In the Pacific Northwest you have the most sophisticated pre-agricultural culture in the world, with stratified societies, matrilineal clans not unlike European noble houses in their organization (complete with feudal crests), and rich artistic traditions. Don't underrate the civilizations of pre-Columbian North America. :)
Congrats on the funding and reaching all goals!
Wish you good luck and success with finishing the product. And us backers for waiting impatiently. =D
Just seconds now to El Dorado.
2 minutes to midnight! Let's go! Thank you everybody for your amazing support!
Hopefully, a splash at GenCon 2018 too.
I waited for this re-launch and am so happy with the success. This game totally deserves to make its way to tabletops across all the Americas and the world too.
Well did a bunch of reading of the available PDF and color me impressed. Up'd pledge to the full package. Congrats on successful campaign. And yeah I'll probably take some heat from the wife but hopefully she'll play this campaign with the rest of us.
A human life bringer stepping down with just minutes to go! Life
Just minutes to make history with the Dragons that conquered America. Yes!
@ Burning Games. Thanks for the excellent answer regarding the decks.
I'm rather amused that the last two backer comments both express concern about spousal approval.
@Neil: If you are using regular poker decks and taking only the cards you need (cards numbered A-6 from all suits + one joker), you need at least one deck per 2-3 players. A good number is one deck per 2 players, and if the number of players is odd then don't count that last player.
If you are using DCA packs, each pack contains 2 decks so one pack is good for up to 5 players. If you are a group of 4, you are good to go with one pack :)
@Jason: Yes, we will have a pledge manager in which you will be able to add stuff to your pledge if you want :) No worries! Gotta stay cool with the wife!
Is it possible to add items in BackerKit later? I am in for the hardcover now...but if I spend $100 or more on another Kickstarter, I'm going to be in some heat with the wife. If I buy at two different times..like book now and PDFs/GM Screen next month...not as much.
Does each player need their own separate deck? My wife might kill me if I spend $30 on four decks of cards.
@Tim: no worries, life happens. We hope you get back on your feet soon!
@Netobvious, Tobias, everyone: Let's gooooooooo!
@Neil: Yes, they are pretty much regular playing cards with cool art, so you can play with decks that you already have lying around or can get very cheaply pretty much anywhere. Only if you want to look at cool illustrations while you play you need the cards we make :)
Talk to me about the cards. Do I need them? Are they just playing cards with really, really nice artwork on them?
Wow! We have the original Mexica and also the Maya and the most sought out Inca at over 50,000 Euro. What a wonderful rush in the last hours. Thank you all.
setbacks, not sad backs... OMG...
I really hate to do this, especially at the end of the campaign, but I can't hold on to the Lifebringer pledge anymore. I waited this long because I really wanted it, but had some sad backs I didn't count on and dropping my pledge to 1 lower, saves a lot of money. I hope I can make someone happy with this move. Please forgive me.
The most civilized to the north are the Ancestral Puebloans / Anasazi
People will know the Cherokee and the Iroquois more.
