      I did not know that. That's awesome. Time to add more money to my pledge. ^^
      Thank you for letting me know. I feel stupid now. lol.

      Gratz guys! :-)
      I´m really happy for achieving this goal and I believe we can get the improved soundtrack etc. as well :-)
      and btw it makes me think about increasing my pledge ;-)

      @Emmo You can still choose the $200 reward if you pledge over $250. You could even choose the $110 or any of the lower tier rewards if you wanted. They let you pick your pledge amount and rewards separately of one another. Of course if you pledge more than your chosen reward tier you get the option of adding the additional rewards.

    7. Alphaavatar.small

      Creator Libor - Dream Traveller on February 23, 2013

      @Emmo: That's not true! You can CHOOSE which reward you want. For example - You can pledge 10,000 dollars and choose 50$ reward. I pledged more than 750 dollars but have 500$ reward selected.

      @Andre Blackledge
      I wouldn't be able to do that. I've pledged $249.99 so that I remain in the $200 reward, but pledge as much as I can. Pledging $1 more would put me into the $250.

      Creator Aeneas Feggans on February 23, 2013

      @Andrew Blackledge:
      I love that idea. You know, if everyone added $1 to their pledge every day until the end, it would add a total in excess of $200,000!

      @Libor:
      It did first occur to me that Ragnar might have been taking the picture, but I jumped on the Dr. Evil bandwagon :). If he was taking the picture he was probably showing everyone what to do.

    14. Me_squared.small

      Creator Maxime Girard on February 22, 2013

      Seeing as Twitch has tons of people commenting continuously, I'll post my thoughts here :

      I've pledged the most I could since way early in the kickstarter. Many already probably said that TLJ is the best game ever, so I'll simply say that I'll always encourage great adventures and hope to one day myself go on such a great adventure such as yours, though not in gaming, but rather in creating events ever greater for all the world to see.

      Creator Libor - Dream Traveller on February 22, 2013

      Regarding 'why isn't Ragnar in the picture?' - Didn't any of you think about the possibility that Ragnar actually took the picture and that's why he isn't in it? :) I am not saying they can't afford a protographer but this could be a very simple explanation :)

    21. Avatar-gksm.small

      Creator sVnsilver Sand, Dream Traveller on February 22, 2013

      Next.. to take over the world. Nice picture guys... wow just noticed to sword, nice. Where's Ragnar? Now he gets to stand all alone awkwardly in front of the camera, pinky in mouth.

      Or is he saving his Dr. Evil pose for... two million dollars? :)

      Creator Andrew Blackledge on February 22, 2013

      At the end of the Kickstarter, like on March 9, everyone should update their pledge with $1! Right now that would already give us $15,000 more. Let's make it happen!
