Hi guys,
I have all the kickstarter exclusive gubbins for Conan but not the optional things that were going to be available afterwards. I was wondering if we roughly know when these will materialise at standard retail? I used Monolith's website form a few weeks ago and am waiting for a reply but I'm a little tempted by what I'm seeing on the selling on market now. Anyone have any info?
Thanks,
David

No ETA.

IIRC, the only optionnal items that are going retail for sure (i.e. publicly announced) are the large expansions (Nordheim & Khitai). Maybe a couple others more.
For the rest we don't know. And I guess Monolith doesn't know either.

It entirely depends on the distributors, not on Monolith. Distributors are their customer for retail, not you and me. It's totally different from the KS sales channel. Distributors won't ask for more optionnal items if the base game doesn't sell weel enough in retail already.

Oh, OK, thanks for the info.

I only bought things that were marked 'kickstarter exclusive' so there are some quite tasty bits I passed on. Lets hope that Monolith / distributors come through for the players because I don't love supporting the markup these sellers on are receiving. I am hoping Monolith will do some direct trade from their online store which is under construction.

Thanks again,

David

Yogah and the crossbowmen are already available to order, so there's obviously a retail plan for some add-ons - likely more than those two.

Asmodee is the distributor for the retail version of the game. So, you should check their site if you want to know what's coming. If you go there now you will see that they've announced Yogah of Yag, Crossbow Men, Kushite Witch Hunters, and the xtra dice pack for retail in early 2017.

My FLGS has it on the shelf. Maybe they backed it for retail sale though?

No, that's probably the retail version of the core game, which came out in stores last week on the 23rd. The OP was talking about the expansions and add-ons.
