    Because of the high amount of our members requesting alternate payment methods that Kickstarter did not offer, I have decided that during the month of June I will extend our crowdsourcing through our website for those of you who were unable to purchase packages through Kickstarter.  I felt it was unfair to deny our communities in Europe and abroad, the ability to participate in this amazing kickstarter, simply because Kickstarter does not support Paypal.

    All backers from Kickstarter will benefit from this additional month of funding with some pretty awesome backer goals and rewards, which we will be releasing today. We will have the ability for Kickstarter pledges to be upgraded as well, if you wish.  Once June is complete, the Kickstarter packages and unique rewards will not be available again.

    All backers of Kickstarter will achieve the additional backer goals that are reached in the June funding on our website. 

    A few important notes;

    -Backer Goal Rewards achieved in Kickstarter, will only be given to Kickstarter specific backers.

    -Backer Goal Rewards achieved on our website during June will be given to both Kickstarter backers as well as June website backers.

    -No Early bird pricing will be available on the website during June.

    -There are no stretch goals (avoiding scope creep)

    This June funding was decided on because it only helps to further include our members who could not participate in Kickstarter, and a Massive Community is what we want.  I know many of you can appreciate that fact.  More funding also helps.   

    Below are the June Backer Rewards that all Kickstarter Backers will enjoy if achieved by our June Crowdsourcing extension. (Graphics for these will come shortly after, including further description)

    1000 June Backers -Founder's Dance- Dance with your fellow backers to celebrate!

    2500 June Backers -Freehold Furniture Set

    Interesting, when did you receive this email? I haven't received anything yet. It would be cool if we hit some of these numbers, should give us an idea how many more people are interested and want to back this game.

    Looks good to me.. more possible rewards without adding any new systems to avoid scope creep, KS exclusive rewards protected and KS supporters can still upgrade if they want.

    Yep, I got it at 2:41PM Mountain time.

    Intrepid.... sounds tasty. Snap snap, moar backers please :D

    I got this email myself earlier today. I find it interesting they say "foreigners" so does that mean they're planning on open regionless servers? I'd be happy with that since I have a lot of European/SEA friends who can't always join me.

    Also, really hope they hit the first item on the list at least.

    Thanks for the posting update.  Glad to see that information!

    I'm an Altoholic.  We are many.  We are I.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what kinda packages/perks they'll be offering to the June backers as well. Having more players around will be great for the community!

    Awesome information regarding this. Glad to see that people who missed out on KS will be able to receive some cool backing incentives as well :) Can't wait to see what kind of ship classes we get if we can reskin them

    So..all previous backers get these too?..cool if so.

    I wonder what that wand is.

    Pretty sure during one of the life streams that they stated there would be regional servers, NA and EU for sure, and I think Oceania.

    @TickledPink Yup, kick start backers will also get any of June's.
    @Windwaker So excited by this one much more than the others, intrepid sounds like a good old fashioned pirate ship design to me :) 
    Hoping we can get ships that you totally require a crew for to sail safely and further distances.... hmmm I smell a forum post.
    @Fleelix I'm crossing fingers that it produces random effects....or spawns random harmless critters!

    I'm starting to think we are getting way too many things as backers. Specially that "Backer parlor game", does that mean that thera are games limited to those backing? It is just a parlor game but... isn't that way to close to limited content?

    And I'm not sure about the porpoue of the "wand of many things", but...
  • Options
    Though doesn't that depend on how many parlor games they'll be producing for most of the population. 
    One different ks dye colour shouldn't matter too much as I hope everyone will have access to a base pallet of hundreds of ones.
    Ditto the games, if there are twenty parlor games planned (for example-i don't have hidden knowledge!), why will the ks exclusive be that much of closing of access to content?

    No, this is a stretch feature - a feature that can be included in the game because the extra funding from the kickstarter reached a point that would allow for the resources to produce it without affecting development time. The goals that are backer number based rather than funding based are backer only rewards. All funding based goals are features available to all players at launch.

    @Wonderboy explained it fully. I'm not into RP but there really seems to be a lot of depth added to this game, if Intrepid delivers. Quite often, it's the little things that make the big difference.

    I think he meant more like "limited" in the sense that not every player in the game might have this particular "parlor game" and that would be an odd thing to exclude. 

    Which I'd have to agree a bit... there are about 20,000 KS backers, and let's say they get another 10,000 in June. That means only 30,000 players could possibly ever have this particular parlor game. But the game population itself would be multiple times that (one would hope!) at least. 

    But there might be more detail... for example maybe it's just an element *of* the game, such as Hearthstone card backs? Something like that might be cool!

    @Lethality My understanding is that the parlor games stretch goal is not limited to anyone. The entire community is able to access the entire range of games whether or not they backed the Kickstarter. It maybe that there are other criteria for access: level, skill, node citizenship; but from the information I have seen there should be no access limitations. Hopefully someone can correct me if have missed something.

    Yep, I think the actual parlor games are for everyone (since it's a stretch goal for the game!).

    I see this though: 
    - 7000 June Backers -Backer Unique Parlor Game

    Which I interpret to mean only people who back the game on KS and in June on the website would have access to it... If so, that seems like an odd thing to limit since it would knee-cap the amount of players in-game you could possibly play it with!

    But I am likely missing something! Maybe we'll get more details soon!

    Almost all backer goals are skins so im geussing this is also a Skin to make your game look different from the non backers.
