Have a question?
That makes sense to me Ben I prefer it that way as well. Just as long as it's all consistent I don't mind either way, it just looks strange to have it both ways.
I do have a question about the card arc lightning if someone wants to take a stab
The card arc lightning knocks an opposing bender down for a turn and they are unable to active until the following turn. My question is this - does this mean that element tokens on this player are ignored for the turn, or can a knocked down player still interact with elemental tokens and get pushed back? I can't tell from the wording of the card if this is treated as an extreme hold of sorts, or if this acts more like a turn skip for that player?
well...considering counterbend SHOULD be one word, and we can't see the fire ferret board in the updates, maybe they just made them all one word?
Counterpoint, counterbore, counterattack, etc. All one word.
Almost no counter- words are two words or even hyphenated
After zooming in on the update from the other day it looks like counterbend is still one word on the avatar korra board unfortunately. The lore based stuff I can get over and blame on nick but this is just a lazy typo that should have been corrected that's a bit of a shame to be honest. Hopefully no more of these silly issues pop up
As an editor who's worked on a few tabletop games, minor typos and mistakes are just a thing that happens. Eight people could look a mistake dead on and not notice it. As long as they don't affect gameplay it's not a big deal.
@Avatar - "We have made updates to the game throughout the campaign and right after, before sending the game off to print. Most of these changes you have brought up have been addressed"
They probably / possibly did correct the typos and stuff, but maybe (according to Nick) the things you call errors aren't ACTUAL errors. I don't know though - I don't work on the show / for nick, and I just like the look of the game
We'll see as more production photos roll in.
Thanks for the reply IDW I appreciate the response. I see where youre coming from with everything approved by nick. Its unfortunate and frustrating that they didnt feel the need to correct the mistakes with these little details as they seem to be a bigger deal to us crazy fans than to the general audience. Hopefully the fact checking process can be a little more tight for future avatar related games!
However, unrelated to canon content - what about the 'counter bend' vs 'counterbend' mistake? This isnt something that would/wouldnt be approved by nick this seems like a formatting issue that got overlooked. Will this be fixed for the final version?
@The Avatar We appreciate your passion for The Legend of Korra and your emails with questions about the game have been helpful. We have made updates to the game throughout the campaign and right after, before sending the game off to print. Most of these changes you have brought up have been addressed, as we have our team here and the fans helping out to create this product. That being said, for some of the changes you are asking for, they just can't happen. The Nickelodeon team has approved the product and given it their seal of approval. Some of things do not line up with the wiki, as it is not an official source. We are very happy with the game we are producing and looking forward to you and other fans enjoying it on the table. Thank you.
I won't lie it's frustrating how often these little errors have been coming up especially since most of them could be remedied by just comparing them with the avatar wiki pages. I have been sending in multiple comments and emails about this subject and these particular errors to IDW so hopefully I get a response sometime soon…
+1 @The Avatar.... those kinds of errors bother me too!
@Jesse I figured you weren't. The IDW Games team was at a con this weekend, which was nice and will be at PAX Unplugged this coming weekend too. We just shared an update as well with some cool pictures of the Amon Expansion. Thanks!
final observation - Im just noticing another logistical issue - 'counter bend' on the fire ferret team board is listed as 2 words, where as on the avatar korra board its listed as 'counterbend' as 1 word. This is quite a bothersome detail to be overlooked will this be fixed for the final version?
Along with the comment I made last week about the tonfas being incorrectly labeled for the equalists, I noticed they are designated as 'chi-blockers' on the board even tho the name is not actually hifenated. Can this be corrected since these are technically incorrect labels? they look off when comparing them to the source material
@Ross, I wasn't looking to get an update on the weekend. It was more that I did not expect anyone to be on at the time. But thanks for the heads up.
@Jesse It is the weekend and we will have an update up this next week. An early production copy just showed up and we will have some photos taken. We are excited to show that off and will share it with you early next week. Thank you for your excitement.
I know it's the weekend as I post this, but any possibility of an update on production?
@IDW I'd appreciate it if you could respond to my many comments or the emails I have been sending
@Donal, I've been helping out a handful of people since the Pledge Manager as they come in. If you think you had an issue with the BackerKit and your Pledge, then just shoot me an email - email@example.com - and I can check on your Pledge.
@Erzaad, We can take some pics of our latest Production Copy which just came in a couple days ago, that would be a fun update. Ill see about doing that in the morning.

also, with moves like water gimbal where it says 'Put 1 water token in each space adjacent to your waterbender' does that mean you would place them next to as well as across from your space to be used as defense?
Can someone remind me if korra ignores spread rules in her solo avatar mode? thanks
Any interesting updates to report?
@Ross: Just checking, has there been a lot of people who had this issue? Your previous update was a week ago and I've not heard much. I realise it must quite difficult trying to sort it all but still I feel the need to check it out.
Hey @IDW I'm noticing a small mistake on the Amon expansion - you have a certain weapon labeled as electric tonfas where in fact they are kali sticks. Did someone address this mistake earlier in the campaign or is this version basically set at this point? Thanks
@David Thank you for following up! I just replied to you and have been following up with the couple other people who have had similar issues. We will be taking care of everyone shortly. Thank you for your patience!
@Ross, Just wanting to see if you received my email regarding the extra charge through the backer kit. I have yet to receive a reply regarding the issue. Thanks.
@TheSirSpence You're covered! Ive sent out a round of emails and keep adding to the list. We will do a round of announcements once we are ready to start signing up stores and clubs too. Not to worry. Thanks!
Hi Ross, can you confirm that you received my email about the tournament pack?
Hey Everyone, A number of you have reported being charged double via the BackerKit. After taking a look at a couple backers who reported this issue, we have identified the situation. Based on our research, everyone who has reported being charged twice added an additional game via the "add-ons" section. We understand this may have been confusing, as backers had to add the Amon Expansion through the Backer Kit, but not the Deluxe Edition of the game that was granted with your pledge. If you feel you were double charged, please email - firstname.lastname@example.org - and we can help you out. Thank you!
I have had no problems so far, and I am looking forward to getting this.
Not really doing much except adding my voice in case anyone else feels like they did something wrong. I too have been charged double (once by KS,once by IDW) for pretty similar amounts. I look forward to hearing about this soon.
I'm confused @ how the backerkit was convoluted and misleading?
You click "edit add ons" and there are literally 5 options, with two being for retailers...
If misleading means shipping costs...I'm surprised people are that surprised. I've only backed like...3 games at this point where shipping was cheap. I'd rather the pledge cost go up and have it say free shipping just so I know what I'm paying up front though
Hey All, Ross from IDW here. We will check with BackerKit tomorrow to see what is going on. We have used BackerKit many times before and have not had this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience and when we get back into the office in the morning, we will see what is going on and let everyone know. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Same here on the double charges. The whole Backerkit has very convoluted, poorly explained and misleading at best. Having back many projects this is the first issue I have every run across like this. i expected much more from IDW. I would like to know how they plan to handle the refund of the double charges before I dispute the charges.
It's such a relief to see standard sized cards.. #phew.
Great campaign IDW congrats! I can't wait to see what you have in store for the avatar universe in the future!
Has anyone else been double charged, when the Kickstarter ended I was charged the $95 for the core game and expansion, but I just got an email and I was charged another $96 dollars and should have only been charged an extra $16 for shipping.
@Daniel - because they're including both and the plastic samples probably arent ready yet
Why in the campain are plastic tokens but in the images sent of the prototype are nit plastic??
@DARKSURTER: I understand your frustration. My shipping was $75 at that level so I had to pull out. I was going to hold extensive tournaments with the game. The grand champion would receive a copy of the game, but all participants would have received trophies, ribbons, t-shirts, and IDW One-Shot comic books for participating. I was going to fund everything mself.
I was not expecting $75 for shipping so sadly my tournaments for Korra are a no go, but I have other tournaments for different games in the works! I will still continue to support IDW in other areas though and keep up with others as they hold Korra tournaments and organized gameplay. I know they will be a joy to watch.
Is anything in the KS version of the Amon expansion that isn't in retail?
Miniature Market has it for preorder for $27 total including shipping in the US...which sure beats $30 + shipping :/
It seems like I managed to back quite a few projects that are locking down their pledge managers fairly quickly. The sooner we all get the game the better but hopefully it's done right first and foremost. A few of the projects I've backed have had to do replacement packs because they were in a hurry. I'm definitely ready to play this with my gaming group on another note.
Looking forward to following the progress of this game! Unfortunately I couldn't up my pledge from $1, so I'll be buying at retail. Just happened that there were other games in my sights this month, and with the PM timeframe being pretty short (though it's not locked yet), I couldnt swing it :/ - if it went into next month (most game PMs I've been involved with have been a month or more) I could've done it
Either way, excited to see the progress as the game gets produced!
@Darksurtur That is the retailer pledge level and what the shipping costs are for that pledge to ship to retailers. Maybe that pledge level just isn't for you. Thank you for following along with the campaign and hopefully you can check it out when it comes to retail. Please let me know if there is anything else we can help you with.
$85 shipping for the six-game package? That's just robbery. I'm probably going to pass on upgrading my pledge from $1.
I should be good to go.
@Nathan I went in and checked out your Pledge. It looks like you have already filled it out, but I went ahead and resent it just in case!
@Nathan Please feel free to message us here at the Kickstarter Page or email me at - email@example.com - and we can make sure you are good to go.
@Major Glitch If you are waiting to update your pledge, you should do that sooner than later.
@IDW - Do you know what time of day you expect to lock down the PM?
@Nathan - I got mine October 12, from IDW Games, subject "Response needed -- ..."
When was the email from the pledge manger sent? I don't believe ever got the email.
