Backed. Legacy was amazing and I have high hopes for the new expedition system. IMHO exacttly what the "normal game" needed. Some kind of campaign to give casual games more meaning..

I don't do legacy games, but I'm absolutely up for a campaign system.

On your backed projects, you can 'View more pledge info' and see it there.

I'm backer 182! (Although I'm just in to comment and get updates (playtester), but I'm positive I'll be getting some of the new addons though!)

So undecided.. I have AE + WE.. I passed on legacy, it didnt feel very solid...

I want the nemesis, and characters.. but I dont need more gems, sparks and junk cards, I have plenty from the first two sets.

I think I'll be passing on this too.

I'm on the exact same boat. I'd really like the new contents (proper co-op with comboing off each other !) but not at this price.
I really don't like how this is a standalone game, when it could be an expansion avoiding asking us to pay yet again for basic stuff. That's clearly a marketing choice to be able to bring more players on board, but it also means faithful players are being milked for more money without added value (like AEG went for the captain is dead, another great game, by the way).
I think it's good feedback to the project leaders that I will not back this because of the extra cost. I'd gladly back a non-standalone expansion.

The campaign system that Kevin has created is a lot of fun. It has an interesting story and the campaign keeps moving, increasing the challenge as you go through it. And you can reset it and do it again as often as you want.

How much stuff gets repeated? Some sparks and gems. The turn order cards and I suppose the player aids, so maybe 50 cards. 1 token sheet of breaches and tokens, which could still be handy if you lose any. And 2 dials. I suppose the box, but that always serves for storage. Everything else would be new. I don't feel like that is a whole lot of "wasted" content. Especially if you keep the mages pre-built, like I like to do.

Yeah I was thinking to myself when I read his comment 'Um, I bought extra gems and sparks to have everything pre-built. What is this "plenty" of which he speaks'

A typical small expansion costs $15 and includes 1-3 Breach mages and 1-2 nemeses. A typical core box costs $35 and includes 8 Breach Mages and 4 nemeses. For an extra $5 over the cost of two small expansions, you get 4 extra breach mages and a new set of basic nemeses cards. All the other stuff (sparks, crystals, etc.) is free.

If we broke up the content in the base pledge including the stretch goals we have planned into non-standalone expansions, it would be 5 or 6 $20 expansions. Even if you got them online for $15, this is still a deal.

I think this is going to be the first AE kickstarter I skip. It's $10+ more than all 3 previous KS and based on retail prices, it would be much cheaper to buy in retail than to back this. Previous KS were about break-even, but you got extra value from the exclusives.

So my thinking is: are the exclusives worth an extra $10 to me? Not really.

There is more content in this one. The MSRP will be higher in retail than previous games.

Good to hear, I'm probably back on the bandwagon if I can get the budget for it.

I never in a million years thought that I'd spend money on New Age magic crystals that can be used for healing, but this Kickstarter made me do it.
