Update #22

Only 2 Days Left to Get Your New BONUS REWARDS: New Knight Tier, Early Skill Access, Crystal Swords, Homeowner's Bounty, Unity Art Packs & More!

We're entering the final lap with only 2 days left in our Kickstarter campaign! Help us push through as many stretch goals as possible in the short time remaining! We've added some juicy new rewards that make for some great upgrades!

We added an all digital version of the Explorer Tier for all of you that wanted Episodes 4 & 5 included in the Explorer tier, but didn't want the hassle of shipping physical goods! We even dropped the price to $120!

Many of you may get all glassy eyed and nostalgic when you hear we added a special Crystal Sword to the $60 tier that has the ability to kill almost any enemy you encounter (single use)! And with Early Skill Access available at the $50 tier (and above), you'll be the envy of all the players when they see you wielding new skills they don't yet have access to!

Not only are we crowdsourcing content from users but we're also crowd sharing! At least once a month we will release Unity content packs for download by those at the Developer tier (and above)! These Unity content packs contain a large number of game assets which can be used, free of charge in your own creations. Now that's a sweet deal!

Many of you suggested we add a tier to bridge the gap between the $500 Village house and $1500 Town house tier, so we added the $750 KNIGHT tier, which comes with a high-end, unique Village level Founder's home, appropriate to their stature as a Knight, complete with their very own house servant!

We also added a bunch of new rewards for all the SotA Homeowners, including unique high-end houses, house pets, house servants, unique furniture, and special Founder's Expert-level Crafting Stations!

So, without wasting another second, check out all our exciting new bonus rewards and pick your upgrades! And remind all your friends that haven't already pledged to come on out and get in on these Kickstarter-Only pledges before our campaign ends on Sunday morning!

      For your 24 hours live stream you might want to consider using twitch TV, many users would enjoy chatting to eachother while they watch your stream in the sidebar.

      I'm in at the Citizen level, but I am deeply concerned about how myself, a casual 1 or 2 hour per night gamer, will experience this game in the midst of many 12 to 24 hour power gamers. Will they overwhelm my experience and crush the life out of it?

      @chaos ignore sidebar. Kickstarter do not allow updates to sidebar once someone has pledged to an item. Full list on homepage and link I posted a few mins ago.

      @Bradley... I'm sure you'll be able to upgrade after Kickstarter. However, I would check the availability of the rent free village house with the team. I seem to recall somewhere that the rent free part was only offered during kickstarter. I could be wrong and it may have changed since I saw it

      Creator Warder Dragon on April 5, 2013

      Can we please have a comprehensive chart of what is included in the various tiers now, seeing as how the right-hand column hasn't been updated? I don't know what's included in the tier I have anymore.

      Creator BradleyUffner on April 5, 2013

      Will we be able to increase our donation level after the Kickstarter campaign ends? I would really like to get up to the Citizen level, but won't be able to afford it until after the 15th.

      Creator Jottt on April 5, 2013

      What I wonder about the "Immortality Fruit":

      According to description, it's "only" a one use (until planted again at home) full healing potion (so not really immortality). Sooo. What happens if:

      I take it too late and die.
      I take it, but still die later on because my enemy is much too strong.
      Someone steals the seeds from me, (stored away it would be rather useless).

      Would that mean it's gone forever?

      Creator Marc Riepen on April 5, 2013

      What are we supposed to do with TWO expert level crafting stations? Sounds like they just ran out of ideas for the Baron level and thought "hey, why not give them TWO crafting stations, yay that is a great idea!" :D

      How about changing that second crafting station to something else?

      Creator chaosprime on April 4, 2013

      Update identifies Founder level as including Immortal Adventurer level rewards, but Kickstarter sidebar identifies Founder level as including Adventurer level rewards. Should probably resolve this contradiction. :)

      How big is the cloth map?

    14. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Tet Yoon Lee on April 4, 2013

      Joshua Johnson: I agree $5 isn't much for the physical stuff although some people who already have enough clutter may simply not want any physical stuff even if it's free. But $20, the minimum extra for people outside the US, and possibly more due to taxes or customs duties is a bit more....

      So... how will players be able to get a house once the game is launched?

    16. Urpg_crest.small

      Creator Portalarium, Inc. on April 4, 2013

      The squire would be an extension of the house pet, an additional and more powerful version for the home. I saw someone roleplaying in the comments or forums the other day a housecarl - I think that's an awesome description of what we see that squire to be right now.

      Creator ☆Dame Lori☆ MGT470 - Virtuous Vamp on April 4, 2013

      Thanks for the replies - what does this squire do?

    18. Urpg_crest.small

      Creator Portalarium, Inc. on April 4, 2013

      @CitizenLori The only thing to drop from the Knight's tier if that stretch goal isn't met would be the Squire... I had asked the team to put this "butler system" up for possible deferment, worried about the extra time to extend our other systems to make this happen. It *seems* to be pretty easy to get done, but I'd rather err on the side of caution here (in regards to future scheduling).

      Richard has talked about how we will re-evaluate our stretches once the Kickstarter is done, to find the things we can still do - I imagine this one is very close to the top of that list, once we spend a few days nailing down its details.

      May we not have to even worry about that; I do so want to see that 1.8 barrier smashed!!!

      gonna stick with my regular explorer tier, an extra 5 bucks for a cloth map is a pretty good deal

      Will the crystal sword be available to the tiers above $60? Thank you!

      Creator Portalarium, Inc. on April 4, 2013

      EXPLORER - ALL DIGITAL was created to give players that do not want physical items shipped top them an option to get the digital downloads of Episode 2-5. It does not include the cloth map, so EXPLORER has one additional item.

    23. Missing_small

      Creator Brian on April 4, 2013

      Would I be correct in my assumption that the explorer level gets all the content that the digital explorer gets, or did something go over my head?

    24. Urpg_crest.small

      Creator Portalarium, Inc. on April 4, 2013

      @ Lori ~ You also get an upgraded village home and an exclusive piece of furniture in addition to new titles and One Expert level crafting station even if we don't hit 1.8! And when we do reach it, even if it's not at launch, you would get your squire then!

      Creator Wes Johnson on April 4, 2013

      I went to explorer. I truly want this to succeed, even if I have to eat ramen for lunch for a while.

      Creator ☆Dame Lori☆ MGT470 - Virtuous Vamp on April 4, 2013

      I'd like more details about the knight level. A little concerned it seems to depend on $1.8m stretch goal. Might want to save the $250 and buy swag from the store later unless you can sell Knight to me.. :)

      Creator Charity Becker on April 4, 2013

      Good evening! I just upgraded to the $750 Knight level, but there is no "Knight" selection for my reward; it still only shows the Citizen (which I had already) and then the $1500 level. Will I be getting my $750 Knight reward even though there is no selection for that one? Thanks! Super excited for this project!
