    Perhaps. It's just some sloppy math balance new sales versus people who upgrade. If they keep adding 'plug in' content like the strategy guide than they can make a lot more money from people who might want to pick and choose extras. And while there is still the possibility that people could upgrade to higher tiers they'll have to add more as many of them are already sold out.

    There damn well better be. So good to see so many Black Isle and Obsidian legends being brought back into the fold with PE, W2 and now Torment.

    Yes, but it's measured in donuts, not dollars.

    Quite a nice assortment, though I do hope an eventual goal opens up on the modding front to give the community a chance to see what can be wrought in a P&P setting other than D&D after all these years save for very few other instances. Besides, since this is a rare case where the system itself is so new as to be malleable moreso than laden with ages old cruft written in stone, it just may get even more people in on the lot of it at the ground floor as it were.

    It's just an outline of how they are approaching the story. There is no spoilers.

    As somebody who holds fast to the rule of never watching trailers before seeing the film (if I can help it) I can tell you that video has only made me more excited for this project. I'm really glad I ended up pledgin' 'dat $95 box.

    BN, will the digital strategy guide be available in the physical tiers as well? Because some stuff (like the digital Numenera books) aren't. Also, what happens if I donate on PayPal with the same address I did on Kickstarter to get another tier? XPLODE??

    Lead designer on Storm of Zehir, a game filled with one-room dungeons. Then became a designer on Dragon Age 2, a game with one dungeon that is used repeatedly.

    Well then, just let him only design one dungeon. No problem.

    An important add on: Do not reuse said dungeon.

    Had to turn down the speakers because I get sick of that Hag wailing and wailing and wailing.

    Plus too many trash mobs. I understand a big part of that is so high craving characters don't hit an unwinnable situation, but perhaps he shouldn't have made it so long then.
