Red Lord is coming!

Greetings Knights!

We are into the final hours of the campaign. Thanks to your unbelievable support, we are closing on $250,000! It’s hard for us to express how thrilled we all are! The journey through ruined Australia will surely be an unforgettable one, especially that we will embark upon it with almost 3,400 Backers

Yesterday you reached a really huge Stretch Goal – Jenny Burns, the Huntress. She has become a true Waste Knight, ready to take down any foe. With her abilities you will fear no beast or mutant, and she will gladly travel to the wildest regions of Australia to catch her prey. 

We also showed to you Frag’n’Hug, a unique enemy created by the Community. This powerful duo has been wreaking havoc in the Waste. It’s about time someone ended their reign of terror! You will certainly get this chance, especially that Frag’n’Hug will be added to the wasteland deck of all Backers.

The next SG on the way is the dedicated Solo Adventure Road to Ruin. We know many of you have been waiting for more solo content. With this, you will get a chance to immerse yourselves in a completely new narrative focused on your character to provide you with a unique gameplay experience.

Considering how little time is left till the end of the campaign, we have decided to show our hand. That’s why you can see on the campaign page the last few stretches of our road. Once you pass the solo adventure, you will get to 5 new Gear Cards to enrich your deck. The badlands hold many secrets both from time before the Scourge, and those left in the sand by other survivors. A few of them will be a great addition to the game.

For the final SG of the campaign we have prepared something special – the kind of threat that may change fate of the whole continent… unless you stop it! Behold the Red Lord in his horrible glory! His worshippers claim he is no mere human, but chaos incarnate – the Horseman of the Apocalypse sent to cleanse the Waste from all weakness. Others see in him yet another crazed gang leader, ready to burn down everything in his path. It will be up to you and your fellow knights to stop the onslaught of his zealous army. 

The Red Lord is represented by a mighty enthroned figure, which is the exclusive Kickstarter content. It is a part of Paths of Blood expansion that features a completely new adventure Rise of the Red Lord, with approx. 150 entries. Additionally, you will also get 7 Special Cards and 5 Boss Tokens used in this huge piece of narrative. We feel Paths of Blood, with its rich content and a unique exclusive figure, constitutes the ending campaign Stretch Goal that will satisfy all our Backers.

Finally, we would like to let you know that tomorrow we will announce the last social SG. You will have 2 days to reach it, and considering your great support we are quite sure it will happen really quickly.

Thank you very, very much! See you in the Waste!

      The Red Lord must NOT be ignored! He must be found, and his reign of tyranny must come to an end, NO MATTER THE EXPENSE!!! ($300,000) He has his psycho nephew Humungous Voorhees going around rowdying people up, making noise, ruining peoples' siestas! Who do they think they are!?

      Enough with the Red Lord and his Magic Mike reject nephew!! The expedition to find these dodgy bogan yobbos must be funded before it's too late and no one can stop them!

      -Still rooting for a late pledge option for purchasing an Add-on with a separate full set of painted minis. (Yes, even including one of man baby Voorhees in his skimpies)

      @Galakta Agreed, we can cross that bridge if we come to it. I'm hoping this BIG KS exclusive puts you way over $300k. Looks like you're headed in the right direction. The 48 hr. reminders have started coming in. Good luck!

      @Douglas Let's just worry when we have a reason. Kicktraq is a great source, but stranger things happened ;-)

      First day, all in backer. Just in case we don't hit $300k...what happens with Big Red? Kicktraq has this project trending at around $280k (before this announcement). Would hate to miss out.

      @alludiah that is the dumbest reason I have heard and yes language translations cost money. Promote the game in your language to get the number of backers needed.

    7. Galakta Creator on

      @All Well, we hope the Red Lord is intimidating enough to persuade you to want him ;-)

      A healthy campaign always brings in a good amount the last 48, as that is when all the backers who just got remind me get a notice and come back. And I think the value here is looking good!

      I think we'll make it. Usually get a good boost in last 48. Fingers crossed, let's aim for 320k!

      Anyone been keeping an excel sheet on how this is performing. Is this a reasonable thing for them to get the 300K? Will be super bummed to see this and not get it now. If only I'd won the lottery recently.

      Nice SG!

      @Galakta I’m still hoping that you make this solo only adventure at least additionally playable by 2 players cooperatively, I’d hate to have it wasted when at least I could play it with my GF. Please consider this.

      Also, component upgrades would be cool, but only if you can swing it.

    13. Alluidh on

      In my opinion, the final amount is due to the decisions on the language versions. Today there will be no version other English and Polish, which will lead to 1$ pledges until the final statemens. I will also reduce my own pledge from 105$ to 1$ and start waiting.

    14. Leo Borg on

      I had also hoped for component upgrades, but this stretch goal is quite something :)

      In a pinch, good miniature for repurposing to a Game of Thrones game . . .

      torn. had my fingers crossed for token upgrades but #!&@ i am stoked for paths of blood and that red lord mini! oh, and more gear cards!

      really hope we see some spikes in last 48 hours with the gap between last 2 SGs though...
