95% Funded + New In-Game Rewards: Ancient Blood and Golden Eagle Companion + Three Ringtones by Doug Cockle
We’ve just hit 95%! This is amazing, thank you all! It's an exciting time for us: after 4 weeks of campaigning as a small team, it’s electrifying to finally have the goal in sight.
As a sign of thanks, we’ve decided to add new attractive rewards to most of the tiers. The rewards are added to the tiers automatically and you don't have to do anything to get them if you have already pledges for the tier.
The first reward we add to all tiers with the digital version of Sacred Fire is the in-game Renown Trait Ancient Blood, as you, our backers, are the lifeblood and the first to inhabit the world of Sacred Fire.
Next reward is the backer exclusive in-game Golden Eagle Companion.
And if you like the voice in our 2 trailers, you’ll surely enjoy a ringtone, alarm tone and text message tone narrated by Doug Cockle.
Here are more details about these new rewards.
1. In-game Renown Trait Ancient Blood
Added to Sparkbearer ($18/$20) and all higher tiers.
This exclusive Renown Trait available only to our backers makes your character one of the few living descendants of an ancient bloodline, believed to be the first men who settled Caledonia and gave birth to its culture and legends.
People will remember and talk about you more (+5% renown) and most will treat you with increased respect (+1 respect). Growing up surrounded with the rich oral tradition improves your skills (+1 Elder skills).
2. In-game Golden Eagle Companion
Added to Fearless Sparkbearer ($27/$30) and all higher tiers.
We’re excited to reveal the backer exclusive in-game Golden Eagle Companion. How will it impact the gameplay? Everything you do is more memorable (+10% renown), and you look more imposing (+1 appearance). The eagle also vastly improves your hunting skills (+50% hunting). Hunting skills also help with spotting traps and ambushes.
There is an emotional bond and loyalty dynamic between your character and the animal companion. No doubt this will make your Sacred Fire experience even more enjoyable.
3. “You may be done with the world, but the world is not done with you. Time to gear up and dive once more into the fray.” How about getting up to the sound of this?
Added to Firestarter ($36/$40) and all higher tiers.
We’re bringing this great alarm tone which will make you leap from your bed in no time. And that’s not all. “A new mission brief is in” is the text message tone for you. Or use “The world needs you. The choice is yours. Will you answer the call?” as your ringtone. All narrated by Doug Cockle, the voice of The Witcher and a winner of the Golden Joystick Award.

The final push to make Sacred Fire better
Every $5,000 beyond the base goal will unlock the stretch goal content - extended character customization, inner voice for your player character or partial voice-over for the main characters.
Furthermore the bigger success the campaign is, the easier it is for us to attract talent and partners. This will free my time to make the core experience better, with more time to polish, balance and add choices and replay value.
The sooner we hit the goal, the better the chances, so please spread the news.
Thank you for your support,
