Me good pirate brethren, since the start of our Kickstarter campaign ye’ve asked us several times, both in comments and private messages, forums and emails, for an exclusive Backer Stretch Goal.
We added the Social Stretch Goal cards to the for this so that no miniature would be exclusive. Those of you who know us are aware that our philosophy is that exclusive miniatures damage shops, which are the pillar of the gaming community.
But we’re also aware of the tremendous effort and support you’ve put into this project, the trust and good atmosphere, so much better than we could have expected. You’ve manned your stations to the very end, me hearties, and without you this game-dream wouldn’t have ever come true.
So there had to be a way that rewarded you accordingly, pirate justice, of a fashion, a way to seal this pirate oath that bonds us as brothers in our joint crossing.
So after hours and meetings with all the team to face the end of the campaign, someone asked about a character that seemed to have been left out. Another person asked how we could reward you guys for your tremendous support, not only financial backing, but moral and intellectual support, effort and tremendous feedback. You’ve devoted time to answer people, spread the word, intervene in forums, shared this with your friends…
So here’s the answer, now, riding the final wave of this strange and promising tide, when the dream is nearest than ever of becoming truth. Our dear Pirate family, it is our pride and pleasure to announce to you that someone is joining us on our crossing…”THE AVENGER”.
“He was a sweet farm boy once, hard-working and family-minded, with eyes like the sea after a storm. He lived happily on a small farm with the love of his life.
Until one day the Governor’s men arrived. They destroyed the crops, they stole what little cattle they had and they burned their house to the ground.
The woman, enraged by the injustice that was being committed, caught the Captain of the Guard unaware and stole his sword off him, but just as she was going to run the blade right through the captain, a Red Coat shot her down, and she agonized on the ground, trying to escape death.
Our man tried desperately to run to his beloved’s side, but the soldiers stopped him with cruel blows from their muskets.
So hard was the beating they gave him that he lost consciousness. When he managed to get up again but a few flakes of ash remained of what had once been his home and his life. He walked as best he could to the beach and abandoned all hope of life, and gave himself to the sea. As he walked inwards, the waves wrapping around his injured body, a figure can be seen above the waves, as if it were a dark angel.
He spend years by the side of that strange angel or demon that rescued him, he learned the pirate trade, how to use the sword, naval battle-tactics, developing his knowledge and immunity to all kinds of poisons, even iocane, and preparing to someday inflict his own justice.
"Vengeance was served… as he wished…”
