Just to be absolutely clear - there must be no confusion here.
Every pledge that says: "1 copy of the game", contains EVERYTHING it has always contained, and that is EVERYTHING (plastic, tokens, minis, boards, everything that's in the box) :)
Nothing has been taken out, nothing has or will be altered.Last updated:
We've put a lot of effort in creating this special science fiction atmosphere in Burning Suns, so we kindly ask for your respect and imagination in creating names for our characters in the game.
As long as it sounds like a plausible sci-fi name, we're happy with you using an alternate version of your own name and so on.
Once the names have to be found - backers will be send a link to a form where they can type name and choose the leader/agent/system etc.
This will all be handled in priority to when the backers were pledging (easy and fair for everyone).
PS: You'll get credited for naming the item.Last updated:
If you want your game shipped to Norway, Australia or anywhere else outside of the 3 regions (US, Canada and EU), then you'll have to add £15 / €17 / $23 to the total amount pledged.
A good idea would be to go to www.boardgamegeek.com and start a thread about sharing shipping costs with 2 or 3 other people (e.g. Double, Triple or Quadruple Suns). Saving some of the expenses that way around.Last updated:

The reason it's more expensive than getting the prototype printed now, is because we're going to update the Prototype post Kickstarter.
New shapes, new layout and illustrations, upgraded components - making the Prototype more expensive and looking more like the final product.
All in all - you can be certain those extra money is spend on your prototype :)Last updated:
If you want the PDFs & 3D models, you just need to pledge for "Promo backer" or higher.
You don't need to add extra if you've already pledged for a copy of the game :)
PS: And in the Print'n'Play version we'll also include the "unit tokens", for those who doesn't have access to a 3D printer.Last updated:
Promos will be added to every copy of Burning Suns in the first print run (this means that every backer will get additional components).
> Promos will have icon or similar indicating that you got your hands on a Kickstarter copy.
> On promos where it's possible, we'll add something special like unique artwork or similar.
> Promos will not be guaranteed in future print runs, but might be moved to special expansions (backers will get more in their original game).
--> These promos has to be available, since Burning Suns is also focused on tournament play (you need access to every component through expansion or similar to make it fair for everyone).
> Promos will not have unique game play impact that will distort the balance or game play experience.Last updated:
If we're successful with the Kickstarter, we'll give every backer access to the "Print'n'Play"-prototype files (PDFs) as soon as possible, so people can start creating their own prototype.
Backers who have pledge for "Promo backer" or more, will get the Final PDFs (the ones that goes to the printer) and the 3D files of the entire game, so you'll be able to create their own version of the finished game.
P'n'P Prototype > All backers > 1-2 months after Kickstarter > PDFs (our own setup).
P'n'P Final > Promo backers and up > 1-2 months after the final production have started > PDFs + 3D (manufacturer's setup).Last updated:
No matter how many stretch goals or promo goals we reach, every copy of Burning Suns will contain the same about of goodies. So if you order 3 copies, you get 3 times stretch and promo goals :)Last updated:
Yes - you also get to name the agent that's created with your looks.Last updated:
