    So do we have any developers around representing their game on the codex, or have they all abandoned ship again?

    Called out about the JarlFrank thing, or what?

    I'm not interested in any political shit as long as no overt agendas are being pushed in the game itself, which it seems like there won't be. But it's too bad they can't just suck it up and remain in contact with one of the few communities online that is going to understand what they are trying to make and give good feedback.

    How do you know there won't be?

    -----------------------------------------------

    The camping screenshot, looks interesting, there are some unique mechanics. However, the items are like the same(these waterskins) in all the recent party-based RPGs(PFK, POE etc) and it starts to get boring. I get that the settings are coming from the same novel/writter(DnD) but i feel the modern devs are out of fresh ideas.

    I said "seems." Not "I know."

    From the tone and atmosphere of the setting I'm picking up on, it seems unlikely it's going to be injected with politics. Judging from the type of writers they are trying to recruit, it also seems unlikely that it's going to emerge through the narrative.

    There are multiple examples of this kind of rubbish english when you look around in the dialogue in trailers and such. One of the reasons this has a slight whiff of eurojank.

    Fair enough. I didn't read much of the posted dialogues but there can still be some propagating questlines etc.

    Am I missing something or is someone claiming that D&D is balanced?

    Hi./

    omg th is is so dumb okay? wtf a maker of the game with huge suppoer self ejects so I cannot get answers to my questions like Josh got a Lich King choice but it is all sold out so is there going to be a few more so I could get a Lich Queen or a Wziard Tower to maybe work with them to make a quest or something with them like King vs. Queen or Lich vs. Wizard right? Not one represtentive here so what do we do because it would be fun to do something like that with my wizard sending mice to listen to Josh's Lich and gaining secrets and Josh sending adventurers into his cellar to kill mice because he thinks they're spying on him right? Where is Hobgoblin? Who is running this show??

    I was looking at the choices because my frient AwesomeButton would like to pledge but maybe his wife is stopping them so if I could get something we could both enjoy that would be like a bizarre love triangle but at least they could play it, right?

    why did you self eject okay? You got your 5 pledges from the Watch but here on Codex so much more who really want this to succeed but you leave!! Have I left after all these years? NO! $20,000 or so away from a goal and you abandon the best ship sailing in the archipelago!

    okay after looking the Wizard Tower is the highest tier to purchase because everything else is sold out so I hp[e there is another push in the last 7 days to open up some of the btter one or Codex has a drive to raise the cost of getting the Wizard Tower?

    Thanks,
    Sherry

    Wow, just $9000 short? I think they can make it in 8 days.

    Some interesting numbers, from what I'm seeing. In March of 2015, Seven Dragon Saga attracted 1860 backers. Realms Beyond has passed that now with 1867 backers.

    But 7DS also had raised US$ 106,000 with those backers, while Ashes of the Fallen is sitting at US$ 95,672.

    Need another update.

    I will shout this from the rooftops in every relevant thread: Kingmaker must be played. It has singlehandedly erased years of crowdfunding disappointment. Kingmaker is the reason I had no problem backing Realms Beyond. Europeans working with the 3.5 OGL? Yes please.

    I didn't back Kingmaker either, similar reasons.

    Neither did I, but fortunately it can be purchased from many fine retailers.
