    Credit cards are basically targetted at people with no self control and little money, which is a sizeable chunk of any population. There is so much stuff to buy today, and the average person just doesn't have the finances to afford most of it, since most of the wealth is way up top. So they could say well fuck it, I can't afford this, but then BOOM, they got this magic card which is KINDA like their money, except of course it's not. So they buy cars, furniture, food, etc they cannot afford, and then the credit card companies slow roll them, collecting killer interest for years and years. It's a shady practice, no doubt, but if you do have the ability to spend only what you have, it's a great convenience that's free of charge.

    If the character tokens were much higher quality it would really help, the TT aesthetic is fine, just look at Battle Brothers (yes ignore all the "muh legs!? retards) its a beautiful looking game. At the moment KotC2 does look pretty cheap and tacky tbqh.

    As an example think Disciples 2 portraits, that would be ORGASMIC.

    I took the $20 pledge and will buy the other modules in due time, the collapse of my country's currency hit me really hard to be able to fork out appropriately :negative:

    Was holding on to the hope for the codex fundraiser, but I see there are no news, and how do those even work?

    What's the ETA on animated sprites if it hits the stretch goal?

    Which version of animated sprites did KOTC1 have? 4 directions?

    Is the 50k goal only your party gets animated sprites? It's going to be awkward if there's a mix between sprites and tokens in this game.

    Infinitron said wait until the base goal of 15,000 is reached before starting the codex fundraiser. As for how they work I think it's something like choosing a tier to go for where you can get something in the game eg character, item, quest, or otherwise some other good stretch goal and aim for that as the fundraiser target. I could be wrong though.

    Eh, tokens remind me of heroquest and board games. That's not all that bad. I play a lot of retrogames on older machines so graphical eye-candy doesn't affect my views too much. That said every time I see kickstarters with stretch goals like:

    1. add xyz class
    2. Add xyz tokens
    3. Add xyz spells
    Etc etc

    it makes me believe these assets are already fully developed and the KS is just milking the base or potential base for mo $$$$.

    Digital assets are at least easily attainable but those who make physical assets like dice, maps, boxes, figurines etc are in a world of hurt if orders get high. Shit, don't get me wrong as I love that stuff but be practical. I have ordered physical KS from an expert jewelry maker and he delivered. Last one i was late on and asked if he had spares; he did and i got a double order.

    I've been on thr end of duds too.

    SO TLDR my post.

    But he will die due starch overdoze is't it?

    Right, credit card is = loan shark in your pocket, so you can't just hang it on tree, which you should do with live scum.

    The problem with graffixx is not it's cheap and such - these words does't reflect actual qualities of it, the problem is it's tiresome? I think that's suitable word, and sharply tiresome.
    I feel fatigue just from the looking at it. Sounds just add to that.
    I wasn't joking when was saying that ASCII wll be better.

    I must admit, I was expecting this to be a really slow struggle to 15k. I really wasn't expecting it to hit the goal so quickly.

    Not that I'm complaining of course.

    I'm more worried it just stalls at a bit over that line. I can see maybe tipping into £20k after a while on the standard backer - basically a preorder - but how many more people who weren't waiting on this already are going to stumble in and plop out for the game+module levels.

    It's a bit of a weird Kickstarter where the game is already complete. Why doesn't he release the standalone game on Steam/GOG and make a Kickstarter for the editor/future modules? Does he think he would make more money through Kickstarter than through Steam/GOG sales? That said, I really hope the Kickstarter reaches that $75K stretch goal, since I'm not sure I could play it with the current graphics. I also hope you can turn off the spell effects - they're obnoxious.

    Although the chance of it happening is almost nil, I would love to see him get his 300k; all stretch goals unlocked.

    What would a guy like that actually do with some semi-serious funding? Would be interesting to see.

    Graphical assets my ass, if I make a ks for 15k and get 300k all the surplus is going to coke and whores.
    In all seriousness tho, a couple of friends who would be interested (lovers of PnP) were immediately taken aback by the graphics and sound, so I do hope he gets the funds to make it look a bit better.
