      is this worded wrong? In the picture all of these are in included in the full pledge

      "add just a little bit to your Deluxe Pledge and take home two KS-Exclusive Heroes of the 7th Combat Role, the KS-Exclusive Hydra, the 200-page full color Art & World of Arena hardcover book, and the gigantic Elder Dragon"

      @Mario
      We will reach 666 K and even more, no worries to have everything.

    4. Jeffrey R. Cooke 28 minutes ago

      @Mario, we don't know about that yet. Since this game is going to be sold retail, it's possible if we don't hit that SG, that it will be an add-on we will have to purchase at retail.

      If we doesn't reach the diabolo SG, it will be available as add-on?

      @Typhon, I just did a comparison of the Dwarf and Vampire figures. There are some heavy similarities between them, but there are also enough differences to make it notable.

    10. Freddy about 2 hours ago

      @Typhon they definitely have some similarities, but they're different models.

    11. Jeffrey R. Cooke about 2 hours ago

      @Typhon, they look different to me and they may not be the final sculpts.

    12. Jeffrey R. Cooke about 2 hours ago

      @FANDUJAPON, I've got a lot of faith in Dragori, they have run an excellent Kickstarter up to this point. They even navigated through the mid campaign slowdown pretty adeptly. Crunch time is fast approaching and I think were going to see something special. I just don't get the feeling that there going to end up dropping the ball before crossing the finish line.

    13. Typhon about 2 hours ago

      Is it just me or are they reusing the hero models for the dwarf and the vampire for the undead dwarf and vampire enemies? Or are they different minis?

      @ Jeffrey +1
      "...so I'm pretty sure they have something up their sleeve for the final 48 hours."

    15. Jeffrey R. Cooke about 2 hours ago

      @Frank, I don't don't think you have anything to worry about, this campaign has been solid from the start and I think we may even get a stronger finish than expected. Dragori seems to like puzzles and surprises, so I'm pretty sure they have something up their sleeve for the final 48 hours.

      @all: I'm going back to bed (only slept 4 hrs), but I will check in later. Hold the line, keep everybody informed and make sure we stay #1 on the Hot List ;-) See you all later.

      @Jeffrey R. Cooke that's a good strategy and I'm right there with you. I backed some smaller games like Deadwood 1876 and Robin Hood. Some of the big ones I even did $1 and I'm just dropping them.

      Cool - as i said this is my first - and i have no regrets - i think this is a great game to be the first one to be involved with for me - i just don't know how this usually goes so it's good to hear the encouraging views.

    26. Preston

      about 2 hours ago

      @Frank on well-run campaigns, which I think this is one of those - you will typically see about the same gains made during the first 24-48 hours. So i have no doubt we'll pass 666k.

    27. Freddy about 2 hours ago

      @TorreyF better get a good night's rest while we're still in the 'slow' part of the campaign. You may want to save that energy for the final 48 hours!

    28. Freddy about 2 hours ago

      @Frank on campaigns like this, it's quite common that around one third of the money comes in during the last 48 hours (as that's when the emails will go out to everyone who selected 'remind me' on the main page). So I'm fairly certain we'll still pass $666k. How far beyond that we may get... no idea.

      @frank @freddy yeah I'm trying to stay up for the update but its 2am and I'm seriously starting to fade haha might have to just check it in the morning

      Frank Simonelli about 2 hours ago

      This is my first kickstarter - for those of you who have been through this before - how many more stretch goals may we realistically unlock before this ends?

    31. Freddy about 2 hours ago

      @Frank it's still the middle of the night in South America... I'm sure Alexandre will post today's update (and update the counter to #4 days left) once he's awake.
      Also, I hope that by now, at least one of those gameplay videos has finished uploading, so that we can see those today...

      @freddy aww yeah fam let's do it!!

    35. Jeffrey R. Cooke about 3 hours ago

      @Kehlenschnitt, Preston, One of the things I have found works really well for me. Is that when I am backing a big game, by big I mean laying down a huge chunk of change, I look for other smaller IP's that I might have simply flew by at any other time. Something like Deck Box Dungeons as an example. It's a simple card game that only cost like $40 for everything. That allows you to still back big games but also keep a good variety so you don't get bored.

    36. Freddy about 3 hours ago

      Now let's try to stay on top until this campaign ends

    37. Freddy about 3 hours ago

      Yay, we did it! Thanks to everyone for their contributions to this!

      @Preston: Thanks for the invite, but I think for Arena it is better if we stay here to help out all the new backers and keep them informed. Somebody just arriving at the Arena wouldn't know about the Discord channel, and if all of us where over there, nobody could help out.

      I'm really looking forward to Solomon Kane and I think it is a good idea, that they integrate this channel in their campaign.

      @Kehlenschnitt
      That's what I'm trying to do. Read everything and learned a lot about some food looking games. All sound good and I'd really like to have MB P and MB R but I realize I won't be able to play it enough to make it worthwhile for me. I know I'm gonna play ARENA a ton because there's so many ways to play it. Wish you guys best of luck with those games.

      @Jeffrey R. Cooke well said. I'll be going All-In on those two as well. Can't wait. As a result I cut back on the marginal campaigns that weren't proven or didn't offer innovative concepts. I won't name them but even though some are big name games and companies I just wasn't inspired.

      Kehlenschnitt about 3 hours ago

      @Jeffrey: +1 I'm really excited for the MB:Pantheon. The last time the Typhon Pledge was like $500 and I would also invest this amount if they bring it back (since I missed it the first time around).

    46. Freddy about 3 hours ago

      @Ghost how are your arms? Feeling a little better by now?

    47. Freddy about 3 hours ago

      @Kyle - nothing yet. The estimates on the campaign page are still what we have, though they did mention they may be able to lower those a little bit...

      @Kehlenschnitt you got it. You guys should really visit and chat in our Discord channel. The reason I know so much is that developers occasionally visit and give us juicy tidbits. This is a great community here too. In fact, Mythic Games set up their own Discord channel and you're going to see that integrated in their next Kickstarter with Solomon Kane.

      @Ghost: Good morning buddy. Glad you took some time off to recharge. You need to conserve your strength for the final 48h ;-) That's when we need you the most.
