Will this stretch goal be met ? Seems a big jump from last one
Thoughts ?
Personally I think it will but cmon would really smash it if they released a add on with some exclusives imo.

There won't be any other add-on.
(Too bad for the Heart token CMON exclu )

And it will be crushed.
Question become: what next, will there be something beyond and will there be time to reach it (IMHO: no and no)

Some people will be a bit miffed if the hellsbane is the last stretch, not because its a dull goal but because its a whimper to end on. In the last hours we could reach $3.6 million unlikely but could happen and that would be enough for another goal.

There is also the small amount from the retailers that would be added. Frankly they added the lizard men add on they developed while the kickstarter was going. No reason another hero couldnt be unlocked so that we have a equal amount of genders for every class.

I would assume the $ amount is an attempt to insure they don't have to come up with anything else on the fly.

And I'm fairly certain (with no real proof) that an add-on roamer box was broken up for SGs at the end. Based soely off comments made by the team.

That doesn't make sense since all of them are kickstarter exclusive. Surely if they were going to break up a roamer box then they'd have not had that label. Although it does seem odd that a top general of "The Darkness" would be kickstarter exclusive. Although if it is true I'm surprised we managed to blow through all the stretch goals given that overall the campaign was fairly unexciting. I don't think I've seen a single stretch goal that I felt I absolutely needed to have, nor an add-on I felt was actually worth the money.

I'm kind of surprised at how many goals it felt like they had to come up with on the spur of the moment, like the lizardmen, or the extra tiles. I mean did they honestly think that just throwing more and more roaming monsters at the campaign would really cut it in terms of goals? It seems kind of unbelievable. Where are the guest boxes? The extra characters? The big-box add-on? It makes me lose a lot of confidence in the company that they thought just tossing a bunch of big miniatures at us would be enough.

The sad part is that given the funding level they've achieved, and the fact that we seem to have gotten through all the planed goals (and then some), they were probably right.

That turned into more of a rant then I intended.

Read the last update. They said it would be the last add-on. Of course, I suppose nothing stops them from going back on that. But I highly doubt it, since obviously they didn't plan on any past the Reptisaurians (and even that wasn't actually planned, so they already are into extra add-ons.)

I hope they do stop. Adding things just for the hell of it that are not in the plan will really make this a late delivery. I'm good with what we have! Let's see the game before we go hog-wild buying add-ons.

No they didn't actually. Here's what they said, copied and pasted:
Final day, final stretch, it's time for the Darkness to send forth its chief general. Darkness and flame, the Lightbringer's bane!

Now Final Stretch SOUNDS like it might be the last add-on, but usually they are more deliberate about something truly being final than that. I think they meant final stretch in terms of "only one more day of posting updates". If they hit it soon, I'd expect something like

"ok guys, we have one LAST stretch goal for you, and this is all we have".

Well, read the good update, the one speaking of add-ons:
#47
"To help start the final push of the campaign, we have one last epic Optional Buy for you."

There is a difference between stretch goals and add-ons.

No, sorry, I was replying to this comment:

Yes, it wasn't the very last update, sorry about that it was the update on the last add-on:

Quote:
The Lizardfolk are crawling out of the swamps to join the Darkness!

Hail Lightbringers!

To help start the final push of the campaign, we have one last epic Optional Buy for you. This is a late entry that was specifically created to meet the requests of many of our backers. The forces of Darkness are about to get a host of cold-blooded allies: the Reptisaurians!

Ahh my bad. I got Add-On and Stretch-Goal confused.

I do think we might just see one last stretch goal within the next few hours.....

Yes, I am quite sure there will be one more stretch goal, as this one will fall very soon (only about 10K away at this point). I really don't think they want to just leave it at that point. Maybe, but that would be odd.

The real questions: Will we conquer the next one? Maybe not, but if so, will there be another after? It would have to end up around 3.7M for the latter, so I see that as unlikely.

This last one (The Darkness' chief general) seems like the one that they probably wanted to end with. Dunno. We'll see soon.

Damn. That only took 20 min for 10K.

That Hellsbane fig was the last SG they planned. So yeah, they did pull one more out of their, uhhhh.... hats. Looks like Artifacts (item cards). They did say this was the last SG.

Nice to see new artifacts! A lot of people wanted more cards so that's cool. and yes, I'm certain this is indeed the last SG.

I'm also willing to bet that, if the campaign doesn't quite make $3.5M, they'll give us this SG anyway as the "token" that they promised backers for the retailer pledge total (which hasn't been added in yet).

But the way this thing is going it looks like it might end up over 3.5 anyway.

Have they ever not awarded the last stretch goal, achieved or not?

I think that the Unicorn deserves many 1$ pledges to be updated.
It is way too offbeat - eg. respect to the much asked "final dragon" - to be missed! meeplemeeplemeeple

Apparently not. They unlocked it anyway! Retail pledges only 60K, but they did the unlock.

Given some of the Kickstarter comments, I'm pretty sure we'll soon be seeing some homebrew Chromatis Hero cards too (Bonecrusher recommended Class of course).

100% I will do this. Even just using the figure and straight up replacing a hero, this Unicorn is going to slay some Massive Darkness

I think there is some kind of cosmic balance that the last thing they gave us was the Brony Pony. Sort of an anti-darkness. laugh
