By now (07/14/2014, 2:40 PM Paris), the campaign reached nine of the thirteen stretch goals revealed until now.

Five of them were upgrades for the box (third army, bags, etc.).
The four others are additionals punchboards

Character Set 1 with A. Magnus, the writer and his "special" cat and with Ilda

Devil boy


The Mayor


The Cultis of the old Gods (edit : change of image after the KS update... )


The next to come is the Priest (in less than 2200 £)

I wonder why there is no update after reaching each stretch goal, to excite the backers a bit and possible backers. No update for 4 days now.

Also, no social stretch goals.

This KS could have reached higher level of funding by now with only those 2 small things.

Any news of an upcoming video showing the game in progress, a tutorial or external preview from any boardgame video blogger?

Right now I'm tempted to pledge money (but NOT doing it), but I still need more "intel" before I deploy my money-scouts into this KS project.

Like actual rules (not HoN rules), more story implements (it seems to origin from Achtung Cthulhu, so there should be an extensive background to take from), and more correct English throughout the game than shown in the comment section on the KS page for this game.

I hope the next few days may convince me to pledge a visually compelling game.

I don't really like the way they have put HoN stretch goals in this campaign.

As stated 'Village People Set-1, Village People Set-2, Kelly's Heroes' are all HoN based so why are they even in this KS? especially as there are SoN goals that may not be hit because of the positioning of these (cultist's).

HoN had it's campaign, and it was successful, there is no reason for HoN stretch goals being in this SoN campaign.

If I am not wrong, the Dagon pledge is there for those who are not specially interested in Shadows over Normandie (SoN) : The Lighthouse can be used either for Heroes of Normandie (HoN) or SoN.

I think those HoN strecth goals were made because the Devil Pig Games boys have a lot in their minds about their games. HoN is their baby and I am pretty sure they prefer to keep reasonnables profits and wages so they can add a lot of thing to it. The more they will be able to do, the more they will.
I do not know any of them but seeing their enthusiasm and their presence while the first KS campaign and all along the post-KS phase makes me think that.

The mix between HoN and SoN in this KS campaign may not be appreciate, but I do believe it is not an unfair way to encourage HoN players to pledge for the SoN KS-campaign.

My opinion.

Village people 1 and 2, and Kelly's Heroes' are universal stuff. They are more geared to HoN because they are not tainted by any Cthulhu or other fantasy elements. So they are very apropriate for historical setting of HoN.

But the they can be used in SoN setting, without problems. Heroes can join Rangers in fight with deep one's and cultists. Villagers can be innocent victims of Black Sun or Cthulhu monsters.

You are probably right and i understand why, but I am new to this game and i don't have HoN, so all the HoN stretch goals do for me is to add confusion about what works with what.
I now understand they are 'compatible' but it just seems odd that some SoN themed goals are at risk of not being reached because of them.

If anyone missed the KS campaign, and wants to piggy-back, send me a GM. I live in Oakland, CA, but I'm happy to help anyone out.

There were lots of KS Exclusive add-ons in the Shadows Over Normandie campaign that won't be a retail later.
