      Joshua - Sorry for the delay in responding! We have been working on finalizing arrangements with the manufacturer. The Roman, Coalition, and Jewish units will all be 18mm tall. The Christian units will be 14mm tall.

    2. Joshua R. Anderson on April 17, 2018

      Are the custom meeples shown to scale with each other? Just wondering because the Coalition meeple looks huge, next to the Jewish and Christian meeples.

      Is it possible to increase my pledge to get additional copies? If so, how much per copy?
      Thanks!

    9. James Smith on April 11, 2018

      Let's get those customized dice!! ;)

      @Patrick, maybe you can mention the last SG upgrade on the project background image so that people know why they should back these last few moments? Just a suggestion...

    18. Missing avatar

      Vermeulen Johan on April 11, 2018

      I just raised my pledge by 10 to bring us closer to that quality upgrade SG. Let's do this together! Yes! Make noise about this game.

    19. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 10, 2018

      Steven - Thanks for the support!

    20. Steven Durst on April 10, 2018

      Looks neat, I'm onboard.

    21. Cory Kneeland on April 10, 2018

      Just increased pledge to include copy of 3 Seeds and UNAUTHORIZED. Gotta support the cause!

    22. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 10, 2018

      Cory - 3 Seeds and UNAUTHORIZED are available as add-ons to any pledge level. $14 for UNAUTHORIZED and $15 for 3 Seeds. Simply use the "pledge manager" to increase the pledge amount for the reward level you selected. Thanks for supporting our other games!

    23. Cory Kneeland on April 10, 2018

      I don't own 3 seeds or UNAUTHORIZED. If there was a pledge to get those games as well, I would gladly increase my pledge.

    24. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 10, 2018

      Thanks to the backers who have joined the campaign today! We are so glad to have you. Let us know if you have any comments or questions!

    25. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 10, 2018

      Eric - That would certainly get us very close, but I am hoping for a pretty active day today with brining in a bunch of new backers. Usually, the last 48 hours of a campaign are a big bump!

      Eric Cirelli on April 10, 2018

      What if we all upgraded our pledge by $10 and all the current backers pay the additional $10 would that be enough?

      Vermeulen Johan on April 9, 2018

      It took me a while but I'm on board. Very happy with my Commissioned and Unauthorized games here in Belgium, EU. So I couldn't miss out on this one! Good luck and thanks. Johan.

    28. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 9, 2018

      Eric - Thanks for jumping on board! We are excited to have the custom units in reach!

      Eric Cirelli on April 9, 2018

      Ok I have upgraded my pledge :)

    30. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 9, 2018

      Dr. Stephen Falken - Unfortunately, we can not offer UNAUTHORIZED and 3 Seeds in the EU because shipping of the already manufactured games from the US to the EU costs more than $200 per carton of games. This makes the individual sales price to offset shipping too high to be reasonable for sales. This was one of our learning points from the UNAUTHORIZED Kickstarter campaign last year. Thank you, however, for your interest in those games.

      This is amazing news. Who ever the donators are I am grateful. Thank you.

    32. Dr. Stephen Falken on April 9, 2018

      Patrick, there's absolutely 0% chance to have an "Everything You Got" pledge for EU (obviously considering the different/bigger shipping cost)?

    33. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 8, 2018

      Joshua - So glad you are enjoying Commissioned! We hope you will like Soul of the Empire just as much. It is a completely different style of game, but just as rich in thematic goodness! We also appreciate your Kickstarter participation. Without Kickstarter funds, we simply would not be able to make games. For some companies, Kickstarter is a pre-order system. For us, it is the financial lifeblood of our business. Thanks again!

      Commissioned is one of my favorite games. This one looks great too. Made my first ever kickstarter pledge.

    38. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 7, 2018

      Cam_JP - Thanks for joining the campaign! We had a really good time talking with Sam and Dan. They put together a great podcast!

      Woohoo!! Congrats on funding! Stretch goals, here we come!

    44. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 5, 2018

      Cory & Matthew - Thanks for the encouragement! We sure do want to hit the $20k promised land. That is the game we really want gamers to play, but the important thing is Soul of the Empire will now see the light of day! We cannot stress enough how excited and thankful we are right now. This campaign has had its ups and downs, but with our amazing team of backers, we look forward to getting the game out into the wild for everyone to enjoy!

      @Cory
      Amen to that! Let's make sure to keep spreading the word.

    46. Cory Kneeland on April 5, 2018

      Awesome! Now we can see if we can reach the promised land of 20k, and component upgrades!

    47. Patrick Lysaght 4-time creator on April 5, 2018

      FUNDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the campaign financially, through social media, or in any other way. We do not get to make games unless our campaigns fund. You made Soul of the Empire a reality! Thank you from the bottom of our heart!
