'Sup, Kickstarter posse?

So, what's the 411 today?

First off, individual player powers! In Lazer Ryderz, each Ryder has one use of a unique power. Once used this power is only recharged when someone steals one of their power prizms! If that happens, their power is recharged, and they can use it again. These powers express each characters' unique personas through abilities such as enhanced movement, attacking your enemies, changing the board, and ignoring the very rules of the game. These powerful and exciting abilities can be activated at just the right moment to get the advantage over your opponents. Since they recharge when an opponent steals your prizm, the trick is activating them at the raddest opportunity for maximum gnarlitude! We'll be unveiling more about these in later updates!

Next up, there's a new PnP up with updated chevron-ized track pieces. Check it out!

Finally, let's meet one of the Ryderz! The Galactic Waveryder!

Surf's always up for the Galactic Waveryder!

Murad Rings. The Amato Gravity Well. J1407B. What do all of these locations have in common? They've all been shredded by the Galactic Waveryder, the raddest solar rider in the known universe. Ten-time champion of the Grand Kahuna Award, he hails from the beach world of Paradise 3, the heart of the Kulture's pleasure planets. Long bored of the mundane thrills of diving headfirst into exploding suns and spinning off the edges of a white hole, he now seeks experiences beyond even the limits of the High Gnarly Council's understanding. With his experimental hyperboard underfoot, the Galactic Waveryder surfs the outer reaches in search of the power prizms. He believes they can unlock the Omega Wave, the ultimate curl, and surely the most tubular experience of all time. The Galactic Waveryder can use his ability, FLY, to take two sweet double-curves at once, allowing him to pull a radical u-turn or shred an awesome S. He may place two hard turns of the speed he is currently in without rolling for success. His maneuverability is unrivaled, allowing him to double back to grab a prizm behind him or work his way around other players to get to his goal.

      Bodacious! We didn't get a chance to check-out the advanced character moves, so we're looking forward to what dynamic that adds to the game!
