Winners, extra dice in the packages, 5th mission

Dear backers, 

As we're closing in on the finishing line, we've a lot of matters to attend to - so I better just get started :)

Writer's contest winners

  • Our 1st winner is > Douglas Grinn with "Secrets of a Dying Sun". This means that you'll be hearing more about these secrets in the future! 
  • Our 2nd winner is > Keresher' Raoul Hagenbeek with "The Finity of Space". Keresher will get the opportunity to do another story based upon wishes from the backers. 

You can read these and 8 other great entries here. I'd like to thank everybody for taking part in this, and for truly making it a crowd experience. 

Extra dice in the packages

I guess many people are like me, "it's always nice to have more dice". I've therefore added dice as an extra item that can be added to your pledge. 

Have you chosen either the GAME PACKAGE or the XL GAME PACKAGE, you'll get these extra dice for free. 

  • GAME PACKAGE = 10 extra combat dice (you save £5 in total on this package).
  • XL GAME PACKAGE = 20 extra combat dice (you save £9 in total on this package). 

Be aware that I can't update the text on the pledges (but these are included).

5th mission

Missions for today!

Best regards Emil

Quote of the day - Tim: "It has been one of my favorite 4x games even in its prototype form, and am excited to see its final version."

      Just updated to game package as I think we'll have a run during the last days and get at least one additional race so game package value will increase as it gets the additional stands.

      I want to thank everyone, this was a truly awesome experience. I look forward to adding back in what I trimmed out to get it to 250 words. I love the fact that this game is so inspirational in creating myth and lore. It's amazing what art can do for the imagination.

      And thank you Keresher' for your kind words and, of course, congratulations to you as well.

      I've been very lucky to meet so many active backers :) Super super awesome - and it'll make for a great experience during the production - and the way till I can share the final product with you guys!

      Hi again! Not only did I "thumb up" the pictures you recommended, I did the other about 150 pictures as well. I had already done a few from a couple missions back, so it wasn't as hard as all that. I'm also re-publishing the Burning Suns info in my blog, my facebook account, and other places. Here's hoping we can unlock the Changelings as well. I'm mentally keeping my fingers crossed for the troops, too.

      #Peder > If you adjust your pledge after that, e.g. £80 + £90 - £55 (so you don't take double up on game). Then when I send you the survey, and you write exactly what you wanted.
      It should be possible for me to count backwards then :)
      - - - - -
      In general I think most things are possible within the limits of the amount of pledges and the pledges themselves. It's all about have a good clean survey afterwards.
      I'd rather spend 2 weeks more on creating the survey, and get it right the first time around :)

      Mission 5 done :)

      Will "Game package" be offered as a addon for us with Burning Names pledge?

    9. SunTzuGames 4-time creator on

      #Nama > Yea, that's the case... I'm planning on attending to this after the Kickstarter, on my own website. This should be possible. I'll make sure there are additional purchase options on my website, for add-ons and similar.

      I'm certain the universe will have a great expanded universe, thanks to all of you :)

      Congratulations to the winners of the writing contest. It was great fun to see what everyone came up with.

      Congratulations to Douglass Grinn and a big thanks to all those that voted for my entry. I'll try my best to write you all a story worth of the Burning Suns Universe.

      Will you also include additional stands to the game packages when the additional unit sets (Insectoids, Wraiths & Neomorphs) get unlocked?
