It took us a while, but here it is:

https://app.crowdox.com/projects/1816687860/1228867626/pledg...

In the 'real' pledge manager, post campaign, you should expect some differences such as:

A) a place to put in your address (of course!)
B) possibly a check box asking if you do NOT want the upgraded cardstock (I suppose you could just hit the "no reward" button, but there are some who've asked for this
C) a check box saying you want the 7 new expansions in VF
D) possibly (no promises) some new add-ons which are merely some of the SGs as parsed out products (e.g., a second set of homebrew neutral faction; another set of the custom ability dice, etc.).

If The Shining Trapezohedron ever becomes a real add-on, we'll also have to add that too.

In regards to D is this a maybe that will happen while there is time to add it to stretch goals or a maybe that will come after the KS closes?

Am I understanding correctly?
If I am in at $600 level, I would still be missing 6-8 player maps, omega rules, upgraded faction cards, and GitD Cthulhu.

What is "VF"? "Very fast"?

VF = Version Française
this is the french version of the game. Unfortunately they never came around making a DV (Deutsche Version - German version). The german CW campaign didn't take of.

The 6-8 player maps aren't in any level. I suppose they thought that most people won't want them, because even if you have so many players, you need a very big table and room.
Everybody will get the omega rules as a PDF. Those that want the physical book can add it as an add-on.
Unless I',m mistaken I think that Sandy said that we will get upgraded doom and ritual tracks as well as new spellbooks and faction cards with all the changes.
The Glow in the Dark Cthulhu is free if you subscribed to their newsletter before the Onslaught 2 campaing started.
It was announced here: Glow-in-the-dark

[please tell me of any errors. Link and I tried to catch all of them, but you never know]
Sorry but the use of the whole thing is unclear: we choose our details on Crowdox, in particular we can choose add-ons that raise our financial commitment but then after validation, we are sent to the kickstarter page where the specified amount of our initial pledge wothout knowing if we have to raise our kickstarter pledged amount to the level of the crowdox's one.

My example: i pledged 150 US dollar on KS. With the add-ons on Crowdow, it raises to 240 USD. What should i do when i come back to KS and i see my pledge of 150 USD ?

Honestly i don't understand why the pledge manager is a separate thing in KS, this causes a lot of confusion...

This is a temporary app so you can calculate your pledge easily. You have to manually change the KS pledge like Loig said. The real Pledge Manager will be available once the KS ends

Bernard,

This is merely a pledge calculator. emphasis on that. It is not integrated with Kickstarter.com in any way - I REALLY wish it could be, but Kickstarter does not let us*. So, you have to manually put the total that the calculator shows as your pledge.

It is for ease of calculating your pledge, and nothing more.

*There was a way that CrowdOx was able to do this previously during our OMD campaign, but KS has since shifted some back end things that prevents it.

As a DVM, you get the die cut faction cards from the original campaign.

so if i have for 240 USD in the pledge manager, i will have to correct my number in KS and put also 240 USD, right ? (i understand quickly if you explain me a long time )

@Bernhard: éxactement mon ami!
@Arthur: thanks buddy, I was confused for a second. Bacause it was not mentioned in the pledge calculator. it only says: "Better cardstock for your ritual track & the 3-8 player doom tracks. Also includes new spellbooks & faction cards for certain minor balance adjustments"

Yeah, people have been clamoring for a real pledge manager as well as a stretch goal manager in Kickstarter for years, but, for some reason, they don't seem to listen or want to...

It would bring them closer to an online store, and they are trying very hard not to be perceived that way.
