Backers, we have reached the time of the campaign when the pace begins to accelerate into the final days. As more and more people sign up to receive their Rewards the volume of pledges will rise quickly.
This campaign has wildly exceeded our expectations. Before we began we had a plan to use the Stretch Goals we had built for Total Eclipse of the Sun through the last day. But the pace of pledges was so high that we decided to accelerate the schedule and give you more content than we had originally planned.
Our team of designers have been working on a special surprise and we’re able to reveal it today. For the Finale of the Thunderstone Quest Kickstarter we’re undertaking …
The Quest for the Quest!
The team has been able to outline, create and begin testing the 5th Quest for Thunderstone Quest which to honor the campaign will be titled A Grand Finale. We are going to release the cards in this Quest as a series of Stretch Goals between now and the end of the campaign.
This will be a complete 243 card Quest just like the other four already in the Campaign. It will have 3 Dungeon Tiles (instead of 6). It will use artwork from previous releases in the Thunderstone line. The cards will be mechanically new, but you will see some familiar faces, some benign and welcome, others that have haunted your dreams, since the first Thunderstone was discovered!.
Tracking the Grand Finale
We are going to close the Dungeon for the Stretch Goals already released in the campaign and start a new tracking graphic just for the Finale. You will note that the graphics for the Explorer and Champion Rewards have been updated to reflect the inclusion of The Total Eclipse of the Sun. Nothing has changed regarding the inclusion of the Stretch Goal content – both Rewards still include all the Stretch Goals in the Campaign, both those already unlocked and those that will be unlocked during the Finale.
A Grand Finale is going to be comprised of over 50 Stretch Goals. We are setting up the Quest for the Quest with individual cards as goals so that we can generate maximum momentum as we go into the final hours of the campaign. Being able to keep up a pace of regularly hitting and revealing new goals will keep the campaign fun as we head into the final stretch.
A Grand Finale Stretch Goals will be tracked in their own graphic which will appear at the top of the Campaign page. The graphic for both Rewards will show a numerical indication of each Stretch Goal as it is added to the Reward packages but we’re not going to replicate the graphics twice like we did for the earlier Stretch Goals and Champion Reward. That will make it easier for us to keep updating the page in near real-time and streamline our process for pushing information out about new Stretch Goals.
Thank You For Your Support!
A Grand Finale has been made possible by your generous contributions to the Campaign. We are incredibly pleased that due to the amount of money we have raised we’re able to add this extra content to your Rewards. Without you, none of this would be possible.
Now it is time to get ready. Terrible forces of Evil stir in the land. Legendary heroes gather. At the Grand Finale your sword, your spells and your faith will be all that stands between the green and verdant lands and the homes of the common folk and an onslaught of monsters and nightmares!
