    I just gave it a glance. Bard's Tale combat? Are they doing it like that in the sequel?

    Nope, they're making it more tactical, with positioning and the like. Many people want something akin to JA2's combat, but we don't really know what the devs will go for at this point. It won't be blob, though, that much we can be sure of.

    Also, by donating towards the statue/shrine, you're supporting the Codex first and foremost.

    True, it should use the same rules as Tim Cain used in Fallout 1, people not noticing it's a joke unless they know the reference. At least I expect something like that, otherwise we will run into weird Minecraft and Gears of War shrines that those guys bought...

    What makes you think all the big donations have come in for it already?

    Well, obviously because it's hit 25% mark. I wouldn't mind people proving me wrong though, we still have 34 days. Go for it, imo.

    Well, if it doesn't reach 5,000$ you can at least feel happy knowing you helped fund a pair of new sneakers for the admins.

    Ah. That makes some sense, but I could also see large donations waiting for a little as well, especially if people treat the anything they put towards the Kickstarter directly as reserved. At least I know that is my situation - I'm not going to reduce my kickstarter allocation, but I also treat that money as completely untouchable, so my donation won't be coming in until next week or so when some additional transfers finally get into the spending account. i could see other people waiting for stuff like that or waiting for the next paycheck before tossing any down.

    This is unofficial for now and I assume we'll discuss this with Chris Avellone in more detail before it goes 100% official, but...

    ...thanks to a Codexer who wishes to remain anonymous we now have MCA offering further incentive for our members to donate towards the Codex shrine in Wasteland 2 -- straight from Facebook:

    (And now I'm really torn between a signed collector's edition and this...)

    Ah hell, I just threw away another $35 towards our shrine. By the time this month is up I'll probably have my personalized MCA avatar nickle and diming myself towards $250 :love:!
