Any idea how to add this to your pledge? Just add the extra amount to what you pledge...then claim it when it comes time to confirm your pledge with pledge manager after campaign ends??

Probably. No real way of telling, but that seems to be the case.

Good question. And the addition to add is 35$ for the first hero expansion, right?

There's been a lot of activity today, so apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere - I haven't found it. I'm new to the game and would be interested in hearing what the more experienced players think about the gameplay implications of this expansion

we know so little about it that nobody really knows. Seems like a new campaign style expansion maybe similar to dragon king or sunstalker but without a new boss.

The First Hero Expansion will allow you to start a campaign from year 12 or year 20 with a developed settlement and experienced survivors, instead of always just at year one with a bunch of rookies.

I think it's a great option for those who have played several campaigns and want to skip the early lantern years that they've already seen several times and can get right into the advanced stuff.

I like the way it allows for this without breaking continuity or ignoring the story. It sets it up as follows: Instead of 4 starting survivors reaching a brand new settlement, you are 4 advanced survivors who arrive at an established settlement. There, you will battle that settlement's Hero (the "First Hero") and slay him/her, taking over their settlement. If you destroy their weapons/gear during the fight, it will be an easier victory... but if you survive without destroying their gear you will get to keep it. Also, since you took over this settlement by force you will need to be careful of possible retaliation and defiance from some of the settlement's survivors.

All in all, I'm pumped for this.

Thanks. I was wondering if the appeal was simply that it allowed experienced players to jump in later in campaign and avoid the early content that has been played multiple times. With the Gold Smoke Knight expansion extending the length of the campaign, I imagine this new starting point could be appealing for those of you with multiple campaigns under your belts. I could see this expansion being especially interesting if we see additional campaign extensions introduced over the course of this KS...

Poots just confirmed in comments section of KS that First Hero expansion will consist of 5 miniatures (4 veteran survivors + Hero monster) and also that he is thinking about adding even more stuff to the expansion because of the amount of money that has been gathered!

This is great! I though it's gonna be just one miniature and it's shaping into something huge!

Here we were, crying that 1.5 would just be a reprint - it's turning to become even more monstrous than what the Lantern Festival couldve brought to the core game. I'm so pumped for the additional goodies that'll add to what I own already.
