There's been a flurry of activity since PAX Unplugged! The $32k and $34k stretch goals have been unlocked, bringing 2 nemesis cards and 2 brand-new player cards to the game. See Update #10 for a preview of what the mechanics for those new player cards might look like.

Will Xae and Mist go on an adventure?

At the beginning of the weekend, the idea of unlocking the first new Mage seemed a long shot at best, but with the flurry of activity in the last few days, it's certainly looking more and more possible!

As of this writing, we need just under $4,400 to unlock the "Into The Breach" stretch goal. Yesterday alone brought in nearly $2,400 so while it may not be a walk in the park, we think it's doable!

Help spread the word as much as you can in these final hours and let's bring Xae to Gravehold!

      Sure higher stretch goals means they need more backers but I think that’s the point they want to see interest in it to commit already to it. If they add the expansion as an add on it means committing to making it now. So if the base game doesn’t end up being profitable they still put themselves on the hook for an expansion regardless. If after making the base game it does well for them they can proceed with the expansion and charge a fair price for it. Just look at One Deck Dungeon the expansion was a stretch goal but that wasn’t met. However, they still ended up producing it after how well the base game did. So the moral here is moreso to get your friends to buy the game after its release if you want to see the expansions.

      Going to make the same comment here I made in the main section:
      We'd gladly pay for the expansion. It's actually quite disheartening to see the total sit so low, not due to lack of interest, but lack of add-on options to bring in more funding.
      You're relying on more backers to reach higher totals, but with a game system like this, you should be seling on an additional add-on pass or something instead of offering it during the campaign for free. Free's all well and good, but if we don't hit the goals, it winds up being nothing. All that does is frustrate folks.

      @Chris - Reaching the stretch goals means the development budget to make an expansion is covered and it will be made for certain. Without reaching a stretch goal, it becomes a business decision whether it's feasible or not to do so. We would like to make all the expansions, but we can only promise the ones whose stretch goals are reached.

      If we don't meet the expansion goals, will they still make it into the game eventually, or will the digital version just always be the base game? I assume it's the former, just with large delays between the expansions?
