Thanks. I didn't catch how to claim my prize, though. My son was talking over them...

They forgot to put an Air Scion in the Fan Favorites graphic, so they are adding this in to it:

I really wish they'd just put that into the Elemental Scions add-on, rather than Fan Favorites...

They basically said they couldn't due to it being too much in the $12 Elemental Scions' price point.

 

Also... Bones 6 confirmed?  (Not really, but Ron's sick and thinking out loud.)

Not "confirmed" but mentioned in passing.

I'm sure it has been on his mind, but on the back burner, since before Bones V went live.

Let them (and us) survive Bones 5 before confirming any Bones 6.

 

P.S. Congrats on your own win too.

Oof.  That would get me the matched set for the efreet and the djinn!  Now I have to re-consider the scions.

 

They should have just made the scions $20, and added in the other two as well.

I imagine changing the price after the kickstarter closed would get them into trouble. Especially since they are unable to change the text and graphics on kickstarter.com now that the project is over.

Floored me. ::):

But that doesn't mean I will refuse goodies from Reaper. :bday:

I put a note in pleading for a limited run of Rose Gold.

Agreed. And it just solidifies my intention to get the Fan Favorites (of which, less than half is actually useful to me).

 

I'm glad that the possibility of a Norse expansion is on Ron's mind. It makes it much more likely my suggestion in the KS comments may eventually come to fruition. 

 

Just think of a Norse expansion that came with a longboat, much like the Brinewind Extras add-on ship, but probably twice as long (~12+ inches), and maybe 3" wide at the widest. 

 

Different sized trolls (kind of like the Oni in Daimyo). Some standing stones/runestones. 

 

Ten or so Norse PC types (warriors, shepherds, priests, Vikings) in each sex. One or two of them Enlarged to Large (on a 2" base).

 

Some big-but-still-Medium half-giants (could be painted up as Goliath). Huldrefolk (with a tail peeking from under her skirts).

 

A Norse-looking ghost (a Deildeghast). 

 

Drakes (wingless dragons).

 

A linnorm (serpentine dragons w/o wings or hind legs)... Maybe a two-headed one...

 

Sorry... Ron got me daydreaming.

 

Back on topic, I wasn't planning to get the Elemental Scions.  Now I probably will, with the Djinn in Fan Favorites.

Well, you could assume that I meant that they should have changed things after the fact (which would be unethical if not outright illegal), or you could assume that I meant that (since they have the artwork, and it wouldn't be the first time that we've had expansions with mixed renders and concept art), they should have done a six-pack of the scions from the get-go.

 

I'll let you choose.

Who ended up winning the subs giveaway, I haven't been able to watch yet.

 

Also agree that this new air scion is a nice add to fan favourites, and I think it'll make me jump in for the elemental pack as well. Might as well if I'm already getting 1/4th of the set. :p

It seems to me Ron likes to hope for a lot, and then eventually has to walk a lot of it back.

 

I would rather they did the research first and then reported back with what's actually feasible later.

About what specifically?

 

The shipping and logistics?

or

something to do with the Galleon?

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
