so i just picked up this game. FLGS was having a black friday weekend sale. got the base game and all the expansions for 40 each.

i'm loving it so far. but my question is this. are Ares planning on releasing the kickstarter exclusive character sheets in a retail pack? i know there are download ones available, but i would legitimately spend money on an alternate agent pack. some other companies have done this (GTG and Sentinels of the multiverse comes to mind, all of the extra characters that they released for free in kickstarter were available for sale later)

also if anyone could point me in the direction of a promo list, so i can start ticking them off in secondary markets if there isn't a retail pack ever planned, that would be great.

thanks in advance, everyone!

The issue was raised during the expansion Kickstarter and after a bit of a discussion the result was that the KS exclusives will remain well... exclusives. So PDFs were provided so you can make your own Agent sheets.

Having said that, unless you are a completist, you won't have a problem if you don't get the promo characters. The game is awesome anyway. meeple

Besides them pissing off their previous supporters I think they might not want to release the promo's for retail for legal reasons.

This is the main issue, IMO. They've released some of the generic extra agents from the second Kickstarter, but I highly doubt we'll ever see anything from the first one (and a bunch of the ones from the second Kickstarter are also very close to their source material).

Dang. Well, thanks anyway everyone! Looks like I'll have to look second hand if I really want to complete it. So far it's amazing though!
