Hey there,

We are truly humbled and admired by the effort you are making to defeat our final Boss.

I imagine 3000 Heroes lifting their shields to block Diabolo's mace swings and fire breaths. Some get lost in the way (aka cancel their pledges) but most stand loyal to the cause and firm in the effort to beat this monster.

Meanwhile, a few others run away from the battlefield, but for a good cause: they go to taverns and towns (aka social media) to recruit new Heroes.

The result? Good news for you: If the next 24 hours are as good as the previous 24 hours, we will unlock Diabolo super miniature. Let's keep up with this intense pace!

-----------------

Implementing backer ideas.

It's safe to assume that we won't stretch much farther than the $666k Stretch Goal, meaning we would not be able to implement some of the finest ideas given by our backer community.

However, we don't want to miss the opportunity to implement something that will greatly increase your experience with Arena.

With all our game modes (Nightmare, Solo, Campaign, PvP, Tournament), and the recently unlocked "Capture the Orb", Arena is an infinitely replayable experience, so it would be cool to add even more variety to your fights.

How about new game boards?

Their quality will be the same you can expect in the Core Box.
Their quality will be the same you can expect in the Core Box.

These new boards will allow you to play simultaneous matches (hosting that tournament at the comfort of your own home, and with bigger parties, is already possible!). They can also be used at your RPG games (for those of you who don't play only boardgames).

These scenarios will be specially assembled by the game designers and ready to receive:

  • Board 1, Side 1: Regular PvP Match (alternate Arena)
  • Board 1, Side 2: Capture the Orb Match
  • Board 2, Side 1: One v All Match
  • Board 2, Side 2: Elder Dragon preassembled Boss Fight deathmatch.

By the way, did you vote for the losing alternate tiles? Tall grass? Ice wall? Electrostatic field? Not all is lost! Perhaps you will see even more than you asked for in these new boards!

Important disclaimer: these new boards add to your experience, but not to the gameplay. You will still be able to play capture the orb matches, and the Elder Dragon fight, and One v All fights, on the empty side of the Core Box game board. This will just have different and improved aesthetics, being preassembled via the artwork.

Choosing the themes: Do you want one of the scenarios to be a forest? Tundra? Swamp? Snow? Flooded/Waterlogged? Wreckage of a sunken ship? Mars? The inside of a cave? Do you want to fight the Elder Dragon at the border of an active volcano?

We are open to suggestions.

Contrary to the other times we collected your opinion on BGG (alternate Lava, Walls, Ruins and Hero artwork), this time your suggestions will only influence, but not determine, the final board themes (we won't make four snowy scenarios if all of them won at a poll/vote, for example).

Dragori Games will make the final theme/artwork choices, so we can have a minimum of quality control, and so that the suggestions can be as open-ended, creative and specific as you want.

We will disclose via KS Update the final board themes. You may ask a refund if you despise them.

----------------

Where to make your suggestions. The Final Quest.

We appreciate your feedback so much that we will even reward it:

ENTER THIS THREAD AND GIVE YOUR IDEAS FOR NEW BOARD THEMES. 300 COMMENTS IN THIS THREAD UNLOCKS THIS QUEST. SIMPLE AS THAT.

Feel free to include your craziest and wildest ideas. What experience is missing in your gamer life? Where would you like to play Capture the Orb? In an Orc Fortress, so you can replace the Orb miniature for a villain and play Capture the Orc? (¬¬')

We will be closely watching your suggestions, to implement the ones we like most.

One vs. all, also known as Be a Dragon Game Mode, is best-suited for five players, where one, controlling a Dragon, will challenge the others. What wins? Coordination/teamwork, or raw, immense power? Both sides will have to think hard and conceive the best strategies in this ultimate clash of minds.

      When I sign into kickstarter and look at the pledge manager it states I have only purchased the 'digital awesomeness', I have pledged £36 and wish to buy the elder dragon, should I be concerned that the manager says I ahev not purchased the elder dragon

      i love the idea of new board.

      i would like a wild life side, as jungle or something that slow us and block linesight with a lot of artwork.

      for the other side, while i read suggestion, i said to myself: what about ... a village ! like a campaign that we hv to protect village and villagers... or we could use it for infiltrating inside the village to get orb (or capture a vip, or kill a mark, ect.)

      so, my suggestion will b a board representing a village !

      I added the new boards and harun.
      Other boards is a very good idea to allow playing similtaneously on different board (same player or not) or to enlarge the battle field.

      Perhaps a board like an ethereal world to allow a game between 2 plans with plan shift

      @Dragori, will the extra boards fit inside one of the boxes, such as the new box created for the SGs?

      @Keyton: "With more boards we can play capture the orb with each team getting a board as a home base and teleporters connecting them."

      This is an awesome idea!

    11. Bart M on

      Do we receive a gold dragon miniature? :p

      Yes to new boards, yes to home brewed mega matches. Would love to see an Ice Cavern, or an island edge with water that could be electrified....or a small village or large village with huts / houses. Or a cemetary.

      Nice boards! Posted in the BGG thread.

    16. Mintpenguin on

      Finally scrounged up the cash to back. All I need is to comment a suggestion to help unlock 1 v all? Alright, how about a scenario in an underground mine where something has killed many of the dwarven workers and brought them back as undead dwarves. Since there are no more workers to maintain the mine, the inner infrastructure has started to decay and it is ready to collapse. But the gold cache (or the orb) is still in the mine. Instead of capture the orb vs another team, the heroes must race against the clock to grab the cache and get out before they are buried with the recently "discharged" miners.

      Just awesome. Thanks @Dragori Games. Seems like @Freddy was right about the Gold Dragon.

    18. Christopher Kaster on

      That Tiger would make a great figurine. I'd love to see that thrown in if you pass the 666 mark. This is such an awesome looking game. I'm in for the full measure.

      @all one last hurrah. We can do this. Welcome new and returning backers. We have been through this journey and are about to make a great accomplishment. We CAN and WILL get past 666k and the 300 posts for the Dragon. Please sontinue to share this kickstarter. Welcome everyone. And continue to answer questions. This is Shadow signing off.

      "Important disclaimer: these new boards add to your experience, but not to the gameplay" While this disclaimer is appreciated, I disagree! With more boards we can play capture the orb with each team getting a board as a home base and teleporters connecting them. Or we can play Big Team Battle with 8v8 or multi team 3 v 3 v 3 v 3. Extra maps opens up a lot of gameplay for home brewers.

      Please tell me the gold dragon won't be just for 1 vs All, and that we can use him as a regular boss too!

      @Benjamin I will have to say it could happen. Doesn't usually happen in any kickstarters that I know of. It would be a mmiracle. So I would recommend to help out with raising more so we can all the stretch goals unlocked and not have to worry.

      Hmmm... the only thing now I don't have are the dice and sleeves. I guess I might as well add them too...

      Extra Dungeon scenery Add-on (Walls an Doors!) would be awesome! There is still time!!!

      Yeah, I forgot about the tiger too. Let's see what the last 24 hours has in store. :)

    29. Bill the Raven on

      So if we get a Heropad for the Gold Dragon, what mini should we use? This is a hero dragon, correct? Is a mini for the gold dragon an inevitable post $666K stretch goal? I like it! :)

      With the $19 boards, I think you will now blow past the current stretch goals. Good show!!!

    30. Chris Hood on

      I’m super excited we’re close to the Diablo and the Gold Dragon! Looking forward to watching the total rise tomorrow :) Question though: if we blow past $666K, which I think we could do if we get enough excitement going, are there any other surprise stretch goals out there? The Emperor’s tiger or a standee for the gold dragon? Or the lava axe or other cards we haven’t unlocked yet? Not trying to sound greedy, as I love what you’ve created for us so far and thank you all for it. Just excited and a little bittersweet this campaign is ending soon!
