Will this RPG expansion be available to those who already own the game or only to those who backed it on the recent KS?

I have owned this game for a while, purchased it at retail. I enjoy it but would welcome some added flavor like The Long Way Home and hope it will be available at least for purchase.

According to a update from June 2017 on Kickstarter: "The document will be made available exclusively to all backers free to download as a printer-friendly PDF." From that, it sounds like it's not going to be available elsewhere. However, that information is over a year old now, and things could have changed since then. I don't remember seeing anything more recent about what the availability of The Long Way Home would be though, so we might have to wait for more info from the creator on this to be sure.

Thank you for the reply. That is kind of disappointing to me.

Yeah that could come across as a bit of a backhand to prior backers.

"Buy the game again or you'll never get this expansion suckers!"

That probably wasnt the intent. And as is noted below you could just back for two of the expansions and skip the rest.

I think you didn't need to buy the game again. You were able to select only the expansion, or just pledge 1$ for the PnP stuff.

Endless Expansion was at the 6$ pledge.

Long Way Home RPG was to open to all backers. Which probably includes the 1$ backing as it does emphasize all.

Still not much help if you missed the KS with it. But indeed there was that option.

So assuming a 3rd print and KS hopefully it will show up again then and those that missed have another chance to get it all.

Given all the difficulties and angry backers Tony dealt with during the 2nd print run, I don't know if there will ever be a 3rd print run one day...

From what I saw it looked like mostly the usual problems of backers not understanding the logistics of printing and the designer not quite explaining the situation clearly.

From the kickstarter last update:

" The Long Way Home will be distributed under the creative commons license CC BY-SA 4.0. While the RPG will be available exclusively through a backer-only link, you are free to share the file and redistribute the material in any medium or format. "

So it will probably find its way to the people that want it.

/thread/2087518 has a link to the original source (on Tony's site) and a bit of feedback about it, including some from Tony.
