A Crowd is Gatherin' ...
Thanks to your generosity and enthusiasm, Western Legends has surpassed 3,500 backers and $300,000! There is a lot of hootin' and hollerin' going on here at Kolossal HQ. We appreciate every single one of you for your support. Let's take a look at what you've unlocked.
What Ya Gittin'
At $275k, four more Story Cards were added to the Fistful of Extras expansion. More Story Cards means more events that can happen to your character as they traverse the landscape in their quest to become the most legendary.
Flavor text from two of the cards unlocked:
Keepin' the Peace: You can't walk but two steps out here before you hear a gunshot ring out from somewhere on the mesa. If it ain't that, it's two fellas punchin' each other's heads in like a sack of feed. Lift up your boot and there's likely to be trouble right underneath it.
Look the Part: Life has been kinder to you than most others. Word of your exploits travels like the wind across the red sand. Some folks fear you, others hold you on high. Bettermost to look the part.
At $290k, a new item was added to the Fistful of Extras expansion - the Peacekeeper! This new weapon helps you climb the Marshal or Wanted track even faster. Havin' this gun on yer hip makes arresting/robbing players and rustlin'/wranglin' cattle more lucrative.
Peacekeeper ability: If you have Marshal points, gain 1 additional Marshal point after you arrest a player or wrangle. If you have Wanted points, gain 1 additional Wanted point after you rob a player or rustle.
Upgraded Peacekeeper: After cards are revealed in a fight, decrease the value of a card played against you by a value of 1. If you have Marshal points, gain 1 additional Marshal point after you arrest a player or wrangle. If you have Wanted points, gain 1 additional Wanted point after you rob a player or rustle. +1LP end of game.
When we hit $305k, a new Bandit sculpt was added to the Fistful of Extras expansion. The Fugitive is a female Bandit that will stand her ground at all costs. There will be two Fugitive sculpts added to the expansion. These sculpts will replace one of the Robber sculpts and one of the Desperado sculpts, giving you three different Bandit sculpts (two of each).

What's Comin' Up?
Next, on the horizon, we have a component upgrade and two more player miniatures for you.
When we get to $320k, all punchboard in the game will be upgraded to 2mm punchboard. This goal was announced prior to the changes we made to the stretch goals. It returns here with a lower funding goal!
Once $335k is reached, we will add the next character-specific miniature to the game - Calamity Jane! And since we all love the idea of character-specific minis ...
At $360k, we'll add the Jesse James mini to the game!
Share the campaign page on all of your social media accounts and let's knock out these next goals quickly. We're excited to show you what else is comin' down the pike.
Western Legends in French!
We are also happy to announce that we reached a total of 250 backers for a French translation of Western Legends! This means that the base game, as well as all stretch goals in the Fistful of Extras expansion will be translated into French. Fantastique!
If we are able to get to a total of 250 backers at the LEGENDAIRE and TAPIS levels, we will also translate the Good, the Bad, and the Handsome expansion to French! This means that if you are pledged at the LEGENDES DE L'OUEST level and are interested in the expansion, you should consider upgrading your pledge to one of the higher tiers. If all 60+ backers at the base level upgraded, the entire game (including all expansions) will be translated into French! Tu peux le faire!
