Update #18

Mega-Announcement! VENGEANCE!

Good morning, Multiverse! 

As we are rapidly approaching the $100k point and have over a week and a half to go, it's time to announce the next set of stretch rewards:

At the $125k level, there will be yet another hero promo card! Awesome!
However, at the $150k level, we're doing something . . . big.

---

Baron Blade has long suffered at the hands of self-proclaimed "heroes". He is tired of their constant harrying, their interruptions of his plans, their love of breaking his inventions. No longer! He has gathered his own team, the Vengeful Five! They are bringing the fight to the heroes, and are bringing an impressive array of other villains, all with their own vendettas against the many Sentinels of the Multiverse!

We will be releasing much more information about Sentinels of the Multiverse: VENGEANCE as we get closer to the $150k mark. There are a lot of VERY cool things happening in this game, from the components, to the villains, to the gameplay itself.

To give you some insights into what we're doing here at Greater Than Games, going forward, it is our intent to release expansions for Sentinels of the Multiverse roughly once per year until we reach the end of the story arc for the game. This schedule, which is slightly slower than what we've done in the past, will free up resources to print other games unrelated to Sentinels of the Multiverse. (But still super awesome; just you wait!) However, if we manage to reach $150K, we will have the resources to accelerate our production schedule on Sentinels of the Multiverse products, and will release our next expansion, Sentinels of the Multiverse: Vengeance, by October of 2013. We will also be able to do a full-sized print run of this game, and print it in a larger box than our standard expansions (a box similar to the Enhanced Edition box) in order to give all of you fantastic folks more storage room for all of your Sentinels cards. 

 Because it is a "mega expansion", playable without any other expansions or even the core game, Vengeance will retail for $29.95. Furthermore, because it will be produced much later than Shattered Timelines, it will not ship at the same time (and don't worry, we won't delay your Shattered Timelines shipment either). Instead, if you are interested in adding Vengeance to your pledge, once we've hit the $150k level and added Vengeance to the A La Carte menu, you can just increase your pledge by $40 to cover the game plus domestic US shipping. We will still send you all the rest of your rewards and stretch rewards by May, and then will ship out Vengeance by October. 

 Anticipated Questions: 

Q: What about international backers? 

A: You've got several options: if you want all of your rewards on the same schedule as domestic backers in the US, you will unfortunately have to add the international shipping surcharge twice ($15 for Canadian backers and $40 for other international backers). If you would prefer to wait and have your entire order (Shattered Timelines, Vengeance, and all stretch rewards) shipped at the same time (by October), you only have to add the international shipping surcharge once. If you would like to pick up your games at Essen Spiel in October, you can also pick up Vengeance at that time, so there is no need to add any extra shipping in this case. If you would like to pick up your games at PAX Australia, unfortunately, Vengeance will not be available by that time. If you would like to receive Vengeance, you'll have to add the $40 international shipping surcharge to cover it. 

Q: Why would I want to add Vengeance to my order now instead of just waiting a year and picking it up somewhere else? 

A: Several reasons! All Vengeance backers will receive with their Vengeance shipment, in addition to the game: 

  • 3 Art prints from Vengeance!
  • Villain Oversized Cards for the Vengeance Five! 

Finally, if we wind up blowing past the $150K mark with time to spare in the campaign, we will announce another set of awesome things! 

Remember, Baron Blade wants the same thing you do: VENGEANCE!

      Sorry if this was already answered - I tried to scan over the older posts, but didn't find it.
      If we reach 150k, will it be possible to let Shattered Timelines be sent Internationally (for 40$) and then pick up Vengeance at Essen?

      White Hair might be the fourth person on Rook City Wraith's incapacitated side. And One Eye sure does look like First Lieutenant Vyktor from Grand Warlord Voss' deck without his hat/hood thing. And Soviet Star has at least three versions of himself, as see on Absolute Zero's Coolant Blast (the EE art, at least).

      Anyone recognize the one eyed guy in the top center and the white haired woman in the bottom left? I know everyone else, but I can't seem to place those two. Also I Hippo Man is on the cover, can't wait to see what he will be up to. Also the copy cat villian appears twice... Hmm... Guess it's time to head to the forums and see what everyone else has come up with.

      I'm really sorry to hear that this is your last Sentinels Kickstarter. I always look forward to backing you. Is there any way to continue to do so after you're done Kickstarting?

    9. Missing_small

      Creator Aaron Phillips on November 16, 2012

      @Daryoon - this is the last Sentinels Kickstarter, but not the last Sentinels game. After this ends, Sentinels games will come out approximately once per year. This will start with Vengeance in 2014 (or Unnamed Expansion if we hit the stretch goal and get Vengeance in 2013). They will continue to release 1 / year until they have completed the story arc. There is no word yet on how many expansions that will take.

      This is the last time you will see Sentinels on Kickstarter, however. After this, preorders will be done by >G on their own website. The success of Sentinels thus far has given them enough of a base to be able to function as a full game company, and to operate a preorder without the need of a crowdfunding site to make it successful.

    10. Photoph.small

      Creator Adam Taylor on November 16, 2012

      @ >G Another $40 for shipping or i wait a whole year for everything? Awesome! $80 shipping aye? Is this really the best you can do price wise? Do you get a free bottle of crazy pills with it?

    11. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Daryoon LoneWolf on November 16, 2012

      Are you going to do any more expansions for Sentinels that are not on Kickstarter? Since you intend this to be the last one, or is this the end of our faithful heroes/villians?

      PS also wondering about those other "games" to which these resources are headed! :)

      I am as excited as everyone for the large expansion. But only one promo if er hit 125k? I was rather hoping we would get one for the missing heroes! (Haka + all Rook City + Infernal Relics ones)

      Take my money. I have no self control when it comes to this game. Pledge increased but I really hope I don't have to wait until 2014 for Vengeance!

    14. Missing_small

      Creator Aaron Phillips on November 16, 2012

      @Robert - Why?

      Everything Ever is what >G has titled a stretch reward level on every kickstarter that I am aware of. It includes everything up to the expansion the kickstarter is for. It is not "everything forever". >G has decided to allow us to preorder the NEXT expansion in addition to the current one. I see no reason why they should include it in existing pledges. If they had waited until the day after the kickstarter and announced a preorder for Vengeance, no one would be complaining that it wasn't part of a kickstarter pledge level.

      Unfortunately, there is no way to change the price of a pledge level once it has backers.

      Creator Pierre St-Michel on November 16, 2012

      Reading your answer to "Patrick"

      Ok, so basically, if I raise my pledge now, I'll get Vengeance "at some point" even if it doesn't reach its goal?

      If I'm right, you might want to write that one in bigger letters as it did prevent me at first...

    20. Missing_small

      Creator Logan Mann on November 16, 2012

      So $40 now for Vengeance counts as a preorder whenever the expansion comes out. If this campaign does NOT reach $150k it is a straight preorder of just the expansion expected to be produced in 2014. If the campaign DOES reach $150k it is a preorder of the expansion plus 3 art prints and oversized villain cards to match and will be expected to arrive October 2013.

      Creator Patrick Dorsey on November 16, 2012

      Thanks for the answer. Just knowing that our commitment will be honored later makes it worth donating now even if that goal isn't met.

      Creator GreaterThanGames on November 16, 2012

      @Galen
      We can do a "delayed delivery" option for international backers so that they don't have to pay the $40 international surcharge twice, but we can't do that for domestic US backers for logistical reasons.

    24. Gtg.small

      Creator GreaterThanGames on November 16, 2012

      @Patrick
      Yes! However, the oversized villain cards and art prints will not come with it for free (and we don't expect to be able to make it in 2013) unless we get to $150K.

    25. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Galen G Brownsmith on November 16, 2012

      Any chance that there will be a 'delayed delivery' option, if we get Vengeance, such that everything ships once Vengeance is ready to reduce shipping costs? The 10$ overhead for domestic shipping/Essen delivery isn't that big a cost, but I could see people overseas wanting to do that, as an 50$ international shipping is kinda pricey.

    26. Dorsey.small

      Creator Patrick Dorsey on November 16, 2012

      @>G - Does our pledge of $40 purchase SotM Vengeance whenever it does come out even if $150K goal isn't met?

      Creator wikiro on November 16, 2012

      Not a fan of this idea. Id rather wait to get money to build up to the next expansion. Right now 30 bucks is all I can afford and would love to have had time to save just to try it, but either way its not the end of the world. I'll have to wait for it to hit store shelves. Its a great game but personally I hope to see this expansion some where else than here right now.

    31. Hisssssss.small

      Creator Chwineka on November 16, 2012

      If we don't reach $150K before the end, will Vengeance still be the next expansion, and will it still come in a larger box?

    36. Gtg.small

      Creator GreaterThanGames on November 16, 2012

      @Ropya

      We intend to print oversized villain cards for every villain we make from now on - they will generally be purchasable separately as a bonus product. However, with this Kickstarter, you will get free oversized cards for all of the Shattered Timelines villains and, if you pledge for Vengeance and we get to $150K, you will also get free oversized villain cards for that expansion.
