My Stretches! What Have You Done?!
All my precious preannounced stretches, in flames! In FLAAAMES! What have you done?
Wait, the stretch goals are on fire and it's not your fault?
And this is a good thing?
Oh. Okay. Well! Let's have a look, then.
Hell's Bells! Look At What You've Done!
- DESTROYED our $48k initial funding goal in under 13 hours.
- ANNIHILATED our $64k art-expanding stretch goal in just 3 more hours.
- OBLITERATED our $72k foe-art-booster goal in just over 3 more hours.
That's a whole lot of fire and mayhem, folks. (I knew I liked something about you.) And it didn't even take the whole day to do it!
Stars And Stones! What's Next?!
Next up are our expansions for the game. Here's what's true about each expansion:
- 2 new player decks
- 2 new book decks
- 5 new Side Jobs cards
- That makes 55 total cards
- Priced at $10 each
- At just a few ounces each, will not increase your shipping cost to add to your shipment
You can add an expansion to your pledge simply by increasing your pledge amount by $10 (assuming you're already getting the main game).
- To do so, go to the front page of this project and click on Manage (blue button in green box).
- On the next screen, click the blue Change Your Pledge button.
- On the next screen, increase the amount in the "Pledge Amount" box by $10.
- Then click Continue.
- Confirm your changes with the Confirm button and you're good to go!
(The same process works for adding another copy of the core game; just add $39. Outside the USA, more copies of the core game will increase your shipping cost, billed later, though. While we can handwave a few ounces, handwaving several pounds is a bit trickier.)
If things go well with the funding progress from here, we could make it up to three expansions total before the campaign is over. That's not to say we'll stop at three expansions forever (especially if the game performs well in distribution after release), but that's as far as we can comfortably go with things we can have ready to ship to you by our delivery target!
Fred You Keep Talking But You Haven't Shown Me The Next Expansion Yet
Yes, that's true.
I'm gonna show you one, and I'll announce the next one as we hit the prior one, until we've got all three covered. Cool?
Fred, Don't Make Me Fuego You.
Okay, okay! Don't get hot about it.
Our next stretch goal at $102,000 is the FAN FAVORITES expansion!
Thomas Raith's deck is butt-kicker best at clearing obstacles and taking down foes. The deck features a slightly higher average Fate value per card, giving him potent discards as suits his family's wealth. The killer app? His Inner Demon stunt lets him play the top card of his deck for free. If luck's on your side, it can be a real game-changer.
While Thomas kicks butt with his beautiful, perfectly formed bod...
Where was I? Oh!
... Waldo Butters' deck uses his incisive intellect to take advantages and investigate cases. Not making enough progress on your cases? With his talents as a Forensic Pathologist, Waldo can turn your hits into clues. (And yes—you'll get to play a Polka Will Never Die! attack with this new deck, too.)
Round all that up with two new book decks based on books #6 and #7, Blood Rites and Dead Beat — along with a few more Side Jobs cards — and you'll add tons of new team combinations and hours more of potential for play. And, yes: we'll have Sue in there (as a potent Advantage card—she'll be our signature image for Dead Beat's advantages, in fact), along with plenty more Foes (individually illustrated thanks to the latest funded stretch!), Cases, Obstacles, and Advantages arrayed in new, exciting, dismaying ways. :)
I Want More.
Of course you do! And as soon as we knock this stretch goal out, believe me, there's more coming. But, please, mercy! I need a little breather before I get the next set of graphics ready for you. :)
And so, thank you all again, so much, for your support so far. This has been an incredible first day, and it's not even over yet.
Let's do this!
