Hi all, Red Raven Games current Near and Far Kickstarter has a little more than two days to go--approximately 58 hours at the time of this posting. We are less than $30K from unlocking an additional, 7th, non-human character that players can use in the game.

For those new to the campaign (or looking for more information about the game) the original game came with 4 planned characters. Two new characters have been unlocked via stretch goals during the campaign--in fact, we have so far unlocked 11 of the 14 planned stretch goals, and well on our way to the next one, a new, previously unrevealed (or even discussed?) 7th Character at $450K.

Ryan has promised to update the stretch goal status sometime today. Meanwhile, I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts as to what this new character might be?

Boar? Fish person? Glogos? Frog? One of the Lost Villagers? A person made entirely of mustache? Perhaps we will we see a reprisal of Liquid Woman, Brass Man or one of the mysterious (and sometimes really lazy) Cat people?

Thoughts? Ideas?

Cheers!
~Steve

I really want a dog character. But in N&F each player starts with a dog companion. So that would be a bit like Mickey Mouse and Pluto.

Some kind of Weasel person would be neat. Maybe a golem, too.

I'm thinking it will be a Glogo, but a Hogman would be awesome too. Maybe we'll see the Robot from A&B, who knows?

Definitely someone made entirely out of a mustache.

It's a cat that hails from Catmapia. Will he find his way home? #catmap

Personally I would love a Frog Folk character. By far my favorite of the races in the games. Always go for them when available, even when their not necessarily an optimal move.

My wife typically goes for the Frog in Above and Below first, too. Even when Froggy is in the $5 spot. And she wins a lot, too. Hmmm...
(Yes, in our game, he is named Froggy, I tried for Sir Hopsalot, I mean, he has a rather unique nobility about him, after all. But no, Froggy it is.)

I'm really hoping for a lovable blue monster with a pink nose... but mainly because I've been calling this the Grover game since I first heard about it.
