Okay, I've got to lobby and encourage those folks who might not yet have voted for a guest star/character as of yet.... I like Adele Moreau...Why? Well for a couple of reasons...it might bring our wives/sweethearts more into the game and it would add the diversity element that is missing in many of the mini games we play. I know that the Lt. Col., SWMBO plays WoW and BattleCry because of the minis element...trying to bring her into SMG. A female character would go a long way to keep her interest up. Comments?

I guess I don't fully understand how these characters will function in-game. If they'll be fully "playable" non-combatants, perhaps they will add diversity.

My understanding is that they'll be a random event that "hangs around" for awhile...

Unfortunately, my wife heard of my post on KS recommending Custom Female French Resistance Fighters be added at some point. Now she's holding out for them, lol. At least my daughters will play it now. My oldest is excited to come home from college for Spring Break and I'm taking that whole week off. There will be many, many SMG battles that week. The guys at my FLGS are already lining up for who gets to get their butt kicked by her first, lol. laugh

I still haven't picked a guest star to vote for. Suppose I should do so this weekend.

Indeed you should.

I'm a little fuzzy on the exact "deadline" for voting.

Remember, Jeff's update reads:

Quote:
Here is how you vote – Pick one of the characters you want to see. Write a two sentence story for the character and email it to sales@lostbattalion.com with the Subject Line - Red Devils Character Vote. Your vote should look something like this…

Anders O’Rielly approaches the closest German soldier and distracts him by asking when he was last at confession - both are spotted.

As another stretch bonus, if the Kick Starter campaign reaches $54,000 funding Level, we will add the top vote-getting Guest Star, plus the cards and anything else needed, into everyone’s base game of Red Devils.


And we no longer are operating under the "if...reaches $54K." We have MADE IT on this one.

I feel it's safe to conclude that you can still vote now, because they have not announced the "top vote-getter," but I think you should do it RIGHT NOW if you want to make sure it counts.

Probably should post a cutoff date for votes? I already voted...for Adele Moreau, for reasons stated earlier in this post. Good way to bring in some "lady" sergeants...

Vote submitted. As much fun as having Adele would be, I love the old-school WWI uniform on Monsieur Percevil, and had a clever idea for his inclusion,mso I voted his way. Sorry Jim. Adele would have been my second.

The early votes are in and Adele Moreau is in a tie! If you haven't voted yet, get your vote in ASAP. I'm still lobbying for Adele since I think her appearance would broaden the SMG base by bringing in some of the ladies. The other guests looked pretty neat as well, but I think that Adele, at least as a first guest star, would go a long way to broaden the base. For details on voting...just check the Kickstarter site...hey, my wife likes her thumbsup
kiss

I had already voted for Courtney Peveril. I liked the old dude in his WWI uniform trying to help out with his intel.

One more time to lobby for Adele Moreau as the KS Guest Star...

As I said on the Ks site...lets get a little DIVERSITY into our war games.
Adele will bring in more of the ladies to SMG (heck, my wife loved the idea).

Adele has the ability to "smoke" the most cunning soldier she encounters cool and add the coolest of story lines to the game...why? Because she's a gal!

Her little ones are, right now, hiding just outside of Pontigou Farm, waiting to give valuable info to the first soldier who comes by so she can feed the little ones....war is he'll...and female civilians suffer it the most. ADELE FOR GUEST CHARACTER...kiss
