Brian just posted a new update for those that may not receive the emails. Big News is

1) They are opening the PM to accept shipping payments. These are NOT subsidized.

2) Miniatures are at least a year away.

Here's the update.

So umm... what's the link to the pledgemanager?

It seems like it would have been a good thing to have in that update. Maybe I just missed it?

A 3 year delay on the miniatures is bordering impressive.

I wonder how many would have backed knowing it would take 4 years to deliver. Everyone knows delays would happen but wow.

I really hope they used the time to come up with a sound strategy how to market this monster of a game.

Perhaps they surprise me and...

Announce a Base Box 3.0 and revised expansion ready for sale at GenCon... Base Box with new kick-ass art from Keith, a bunch of brand-new starting modules to get players going and a "retail-exclusive" hero.

Announce, that all KS content will be revised and widely available at retail following the release of the base game and show us a release schedule for the next 2 years.

Announce, that a new online platform for MYTH has gone live, where the original promise of a "boardgame-MMO" will be full-filled - providing patches, templates, community-content and special events.

I don't see how they can sell anything before the miniature delivery, it feels like commercial suicide for me, or even do a KS, this is strange to announce something at gencon and have to wait 1 year for the delivery.

But the announcement may also be just "we bought it, and we will talk about the future when you will have what you paid for".

Can't wait for the announcement of the new buyer! Myth has such a great potential to be a true sandbox game that can be modded any way you want and they can add anything without too much restriction.

At this point, I think everyone is happy to just get something. Especially since there was a good chance nothing was going to happen and the company just go under...

Wow so I have to pay US$65 (AU$90) just to get the paper modules + cards I paid for years ago shipped.

Then pay another God knows what to get the minis shipped a year or so from now.

I have no idea what their plan is,.... but I seriously doubt that there will be a new set available at GenCon,..... was there time to green light that and have it produced,... yeah, I think so,..... but I think it is more likely that they will announce the purchase; and tease us with the outlines of what they plan to do,.....

My hope is a reboot that slowly puts out polished retail products:

- New base set out late Spring (post CNY shipment) or coordinated with KS2 minis shipment:
- Same tiles
- 2.0 heroes
- no Yardu; add in Razorfiend perhaps or new one
- remove excess tokens (KSE heroes, expansion quest tokens)
- add in 1/4/20 for both insects and orcs,.... yay Orcneas!
- full module for Orcneas

- Adventurers' Tool Kit
- all the wonderful things we've been dreaming of for modders

- Packaged Modules for retail (staggered release schedule)
- Start off with Undead (Bones, Nosferatu, Yardu, 4/20)
- Include bonus Nosferatu World Boss encounter

- then give info of where it goes next,..... Myth Master, Myth Legend, etc. (hopefully they will produce this via retail (not KS) and they can use the time between the reboot and then to redevelop the fan base.

Strongly agree - a wise buyer would be making sure the dust is settling on the previous product (we are about to get a LOT of new stuff dropped on us, well, those who pay the shipping are anyway) before trying to give it a new life or direction.

Somehow I got away with only $60 (and I'm ALLLLLL in) but yeah, it's still a big bill. That said, Megacon can't and aren't going to subsidise the shipping, and it's over 6KG from what I can see, so that's pretty much the full cost of international shipping.

You mentioned you already paid shipping for this - are you sure? To my mind, I've only ever paid $20-30 shipping to cover the 2.0 upgrade kit and the base boxes.

Which, to be clear, is not to say I'm super pumped about paying $60, but to my mind that's not on top of any previous payment we've made for this wave. In fact, one of the sticking points for backing this waaaaay back in the beginning was the whole "we are going to charge shipping as and when we need to, and we don't know what it's going to be" - which after the massive underquoting of the very first Myth campaign, signalled much higher costs were likely.

E.g. if the expansion boxes were $25 to ship, I doubt we'd have been getting this stuff for anything under $30 even if Megacon were still in a position to subsidise shipping rates.

In other words it sucks, but not anywhere as much as the MAGE sleeves kickstarter, which is currently in the position of "you know how you already paid $40 to ship your sleeves, well we spent all that money, and now we need you to pay our distributor $150 to ever see those sleeves and we totally will pay you back, honest, with money we totally don't actually have"

Nice to see progress on this.

I wonder if those of us missing our second copies of Blackwall Warrens and Shores of Kanis will receive them in this wave.

So are people waiting for one big shipment or paying to ship the cardboard stuff now?

I paid shipping now for the following reasons:

- If 4y+ following this game has tought me anything, it's to never assume, something will be "available later". If you like it, grab it while you can.

- Shipping rates only seem to go up. I doubt you'll save that much, if you get everything in one wave - especially as we're talking at least another year until all the plastic arrives.

I paid using the same argument even if the french version is not part of this wave.

Agree with all of the above - better to pay now and get the stuff - besides I've been parking Myth for a while due to not having enough upgraded bits (2.0 treasure / quest decks etc...) to want to bother.

With this cardboard stuff, a lot more stuff gets unlocked (and if you can bear to proxy some minis, technically this IS the new gameplay - I know I'll lose my hardcore mini ameritrash buyer badge for this - but again, 100% of the new gameplay is in THIS delivery).

Hopefully the minis will follow. Hopefully.

My thought exactly. Better swallow this bitter pill now and at least receive a part of my pledge than running the risk of not receiving anything at all.

On a side note: $22 for shipping to Germany sounds a lot better than shipping cost for the poor lads from down under.... =/

For all the people thinking this, I'm not native english but I understand that Megacon expects the buyer to say something in GenCon, but nothing is 100% sure.
I say this because the statement "the buyer will be talking about the purchase at Gencon" reminds me to GenCon 2017.
