Yes: During the first campaign I was approach with offers to translate the rulebook and cards into a number of languages including: French, Germain, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Traditional Chinese and others. I will make the translated rulebooks and print and play for the cards available through the Quodd Heroes website before the game ships.
If I end up using a pledge manager after the campaign (which is a distinct possibility) then I will be able to offer refunds for shipping charges at the point if you choose to have the local pickup option.
There will be no additional shipping if you purchase the add-on, for any pledge level.
They will be shipped in the same package as your game, just not inside the game box itself.
They will fit inside the game box once opened.
Short answer, no.
There are some very limited pledge levels (which are gone at the time of writing) where we will be painting them for you but all other pledge levels will come with unpainted, grey plastic miniatures.
You do not need the add-on to play Quodd Heroes.
The game is vastly adaptable and already includes a HUGE amount of content and replayability.
The add-on pack provides thematic content for those who desire those extra sprinkles on their ice cream :)
We currently have 8 balanced and perfected scenarios, with 4 more ever so close to being finished.
With the unlocking of the Overlord, Sheep tokens, stretch goal scenario and double sided player boards we are currently working on 6 more scenarios; totaling a whopping 18 scenarios!
The map Add on pack with also include 3 thematic scenarios.
A Kickstarter Exclusive item is something that will only ever be available through this Kickstarter campaign (and as promo items at conventions etc.) and will not be generally available as a retail product.
Something that is a KS ONLY UPGRADE (and not also a Kickstarter Exclusive) may at some future point be available as an additional purchase in retail. My stance on this subject is that significant gameplay features (such as characters and game boards) should be available to all players if they wish to acquire them. At this point there are no plans to have the Elemental characters available for purchase in retail, it is possible that they will be made available at some point.
