Update #45

Unlock: Krell System

FIVE MILLION! At 5.5M you’ll unlock the Bengal carrier, add professional motion capture to Squadron 42 and get an exclusive RECORD BREAKER skin and 1000 credits for every backer! Then at six million (can you do it?!) we will launch with 100 systems, a full orchestral score and will make the first Squadron 42 mission disk, Behind Enemy Lines, available for free for all backers upon release (a 16-mission campaign in the style of The Secret Missions.)

You can watch the end-of-campaign livestream here.

Krell System

Ownership: Krell
Planets: 9
Planetary Rotation: Krell IV (PRIME) 5008 SED
Import: Unknown
Export: Unknown
Crime Status: Unknown
Black Market: Unknown
UEE Strategic Value: Black

Human shave yet to official set foot in the Krell System. Located on
the opposite side of Xi'An territory, Krell is home and namesake of a
traveling species that the UEE has had no formal interaction with. The
Xi'An, however, have had a tempestuous relationship with them for the
last seven hundred years, ultimately culminating in a devastating
century-long conflict loosely translated as the Spirit Wars.

Advice for travelers seeking to visit the Krell is few and far
between. It is entirely unknown what goods they might be interested in
trading, what they produce natively or what they would even consider
black market items. It's also unknown exactly how to reach them… or
just what reaction the Xi'An star patrols would have to a human
traversing their territory for the purpose of doing business with
their ancient enemies.

      Okay, I'm bled dry now. This is the first Kickstarter and the first commercial project I pledge any money to, but it's been a dream long time in coming. All those happy hours in my childhood, make them come alive again in a new world with new possibilities - and hopefully that old WOW!-feeling. And if not I still have cool swag and a T-Shirt ;)

      Did you guys put something in the water?
      I mean I just doubled-ish my previous pledge just because (115->215)
      You guys are mean!
      But, you know, in a good way.

      The vanduul fighter doesn't. Include what's in the pirate pack like the tractor beam and docking collar

    13. Wraith.small

      Creator Corpselocker on November 18, 2012

      I just would like more reassurance to go from a $100 pirate to a $300 Vandaal...

    14. Img_2136.small

      Creator Rosia on November 18, 2012

      I think the vanduul fighter is a single person fighter.

      Creator David Kennedy on November 18, 2012

      pretty amazing to watch the totals during these final 24 hours. In just the past hour alone the total amount earned has increased by ~100k. Incredible stuff.

    16. Wraith.small

      Creator Corpselocker on November 18, 2012

      Well, I still would like info on the Vandaal ship. The pirate ship totally fit the bill for what I wanted. If the Vandaal is more of the same, but bigger, I am there. I fear, though, if I give up the pirate package that the Vandaal ship will REQUIRE many people to run effectively.

      Yeah RSI and kickstarter will be combined into one account. Asked RSI when they first did the skin on RSI. Now all my add ons are on RSI and my main pledge is on here. So it's easier for me to keep track of

      Anybody knows if it is possible to be a citizen AND a pirate on one account? Something like - log in and choose the character you want to be?..

    20. Pcb-design.small

      Creator JTD121 on November 18, 2012

      @Corpselocker - I think they will be 'concurrent', so you can have pledges on both, and get both. I believe the KS pledges will be 'merged' after it's done, and any rewards that double, or extra because of both pledges, will be sorted afterwards, too. Quite the dinner break! :-)

    21. Wraith.small

      Creator Corpselocker on November 18, 2012

      Also, I want to merge my purchases. I want to keep my scout, but buy the Vanduul ship on the site. Will I be able to merge my purchases?

    22. Wraith.small

      Creator Corpselocker on November 18, 2012

      I'm still looking for info on the $300 Vanduul ship. I'm sitting at $130 (Scout + Pirate package), but I can't compare anything. Heck, I'm still feeling I have to go back to $110 to do digital pirate because I feel I'm spending a lot of money for a card, but losing 1000k credits and the rule book.

      Give me info, please!

      I dont believe carrier can have AI fighters, description of the ship specifically says its for guilds and clans. So its a guild capital ship.

    30. Hirugarn.small

      Creator Dré Kozar on November 18, 2012

      Does anyone know with the carrier if all fighters will have to be player-operated, or do ya think we'll be able to get AI flown ships to compensate for a smaller crew?

      Creator Ron Au on November 18, 2012

      Would love to gather a 100-player sized group in an instance and all exploring this system cooperatively. Sure some of us may be natural enemies (pirates vs bounty hunters, etc) but in the end, those differences pale in comparison to the unity we have as a race, as humans, and ultimately as players. It'll be a great stand we make against this unknown species. The Xi'An are supposed to be allied with the UEE as well, so technically the unknown species are our enemy as well. We could move through the system with an unstoppable force and fill out our presence there :)
