Btw link next time you do a video, you need to have a better idea of what you're going to say. It's so clear that you have no clue what exactly you want to say.

Try to think of examples before you do the video and it will make everything seem a lot more natural

Yes we would love to see the five player video. These videos are the only thing keeping the Great Old Ones contained! The more videos created the longer their entry into our reality is delayed.

Keep up the great work guys!

This video was shot for our benefit so its no biggie to me. And I've always been a fan of impromptu sessions. Opener of the Way is going to be one of my greatest enemies in game. He has so many goodies to help turn the tide to his favor. Not to mention I love the "Beyond One" and "Dread Curse of Azathoth" abilities.

Great Old Ones giving you a terrible time? It's time to summon Hastur of the Yellow Sign!

The reason Link was like that is because Link is really in a braincase and that was the best the mi-go could do in approximating his...wait, I've said too much...

You can tell Link really knows his stuff from this video, but I agree having notes ahead of time would really help him present it better.

But with that said, thank you guys for the video. It was awesome to see an official video regarding the faction.

Awesome video, thanks

PS: when are the other miniatures due to arrive? I wrote to Fenris on FB and they said

everything's sculpted and moulded, and prototypes of the first full set for playtesting are on their way to Sandy this week....

It also doesn't help that after EVERYTHING I said someone commented about it telling me to redo it. So really you're seeing like 4-5 take stuff where this should have been a 1 take simple job.

You and Sandy did a great job Link. I found the video both informative and interesting. Plus it felt less scripted and more natural. This presentation felt like a conversation between two friends.

P.S: Everybody is a critic these days. Just ignore it and have fun making these videos for us! Thanks a bunch.

If nobody ever criticized things wouldn't become better.
I don't think the info was bad, I just think it could have been presented better especially link's part.

Sorry I'm not a professional actor guys! Although after all the criticizing I feel like I'm a Bollywood star in an Umberto Lenzi movie!

The video gives me a better sense of how Opener handles in a game. He/She/It are incredibly flexible and I'm guessing their force is in a constant state of flux (more than normal in this game), but definitely reactionary. And Dread Curse is a frickin' death ray that can soften up a spot for you to jump into or pick off neglected areas.

The video probably would've been a bit better on a stand or something, the style you guys had for the earlier faction videos were great. But I backed this because it looks like an awesome game, not because I expected professional quality movies, this is all above and beyond what any other kickstarter has delivered that I've been in.

I agree. In future videos, Link should wear a vest.

So will it be a button-down, kevlar or gorrilla vest?

Link, you live in a city. Cities are why there are zombies. Are you also going to have an oatmeal creme pie face?

No no no Arthur cities CREATE zombies. Have you learned nothing from Nightmare City? Also they're the next evolution of man.

We give you our solemn promise that we will not have professional quality movies.
