This first shipment is almost completely dedicated to the Kickstarter supporters. A second shipment will arrive in a few weeks, with the games that will be sent to stores and everything else.

Re: Games have arrived!
In the kickstarter page, it says that every physical copy will include 6 promotional characters. Does this include preorders from retailers?

I believe everything but the Extended Edition and the promos have arrived. So we still have a few days before shipping starts in earnest.

I know it includes pre-orders from the Lvl 99 website. Not sure if it includes other retailers tho. You may wanna shoot them an email and ask.

No, it doesn't.

Four promo characters (Mark PTO, Iris, Bridj, Legacy) are free with orders from the Level 99 webstore.

Two 'mascot' characters (Borneo and Juto) are NOT free, except for Kickstarter backers... they're part of the Extended Edition content pack (which also has extra character cards with different special abilities, three extra sets of character standups for different art styles, and... I can never remember what else. But there's other stuff, and it's $15 from Level 99.)

I'm not sure whether the freebies are always included in webstore orders, or if you have to ask. Maybe they're always included if you buy the base game from Level 99, but they'll stick them in any order if you ask? I dunno, something like that. At any rate, you can't get any of them from CSI or Miniature Market, I believe.

[Edited to add: The two parts I forgot from Extended Edition are Equipment Cards and the War Update.

Equipment is for use in BattleQUEST or, optionally, for adding extra configurability to fighters in a normal duel.

The updated War cards are "version 1.5"-- they have updated rules text to rebalance the characters from War of Indines, but use the original art to match the first printing of War. At some point there was a statement that those update cards would be a free PnP from the Level 99 website, though I don't know if that's still the plan.]

I'm still crossing my fingers that Devastation will be at BGG Con.

Would be nice if they updated the pages for Devasatation EE and Strikers to be more than the placeholder pages.

These two are the ones I'm most looking forward too Also, Legacy!

Guys, if you didn't kickstart Devastation, make sure you order from level 99 website to get the extra goodies. Can't wait to have a Borneo vs Juto contest laugh

I wish more companies would do this. Its incentive to buy direct instead of through discount retailers like CSI. I'll gladly pay MSRP for a few bonuses.

Well, since I'm in Europe, the overall price with shipping would be humogous from lvl 99 store, so I preordered frm CSI

How much did that come to with shipping?

I'm in the same boat, continent-wise, and looking to get this to the UK. Might be easier to wait for retail since I'll probably get hit by a customs charge (and obligatory 'handling' extortion, I mean 'fee') on a US import. Hmm.

From CSI there's is a discount ans it's around 49$ plus 35$ shipping so the final cost I paid is 60euros.

How much is the shipping from level 99? It has to be quite more expensive if you decided to go with CSI?

I see. I thought the problem was the shipping charges. Well, on one hand you are missing quite a few promos but on the other hand you are saving some money, so it all evens out

Well, yeah Even the money we gave now is waaay over our budget, so the original price plus shipping would be way too much. But I think a so awesome game such as this, deserves it!

A kinda irrelavent question: are there equipment cards? If so what are they?

They are part of Extended Edition and are usable with most game modes (but mainly for the BattlleQuest, the dungeon mode). Each one costs "money" and then give you some form of passive or active benefit. For dungeons, you can try to use the minimum amount of money to challenge yourself.
