Hi all!

I've just pre-ordered 1 master's set + 1 base set!

My idea was basically having enough for a good 4 players replay-ability.

What are you pre-ordering?

I got onboard with kickstarter and have the Core set as well as a case of inscription packs coming. Along with all the stretch goals and specialty kickstarter, it should give me enough to sink my teeth into.

I spent the big bucks on the line for life, so I am pretty much set right now.

I was really tempted with that... but I would be paying international shipping for an eternity.... I'm not sure I want that.... does that include a master's set?

I live is South-East Asia and I am really buggered by the explosion of international shipping costs ...
Dunno what to do with the Line for Life. Read on the ST website that either they can find retailers in my country that will get involved in the game so they can bundle my "Line for Life" items with theirs or I might need to wait to consolidate many items into 1 shipment...

May I ask why exactly 6 inscription cases?

I am thinking about getting a second one.... that would be 720 cards.

why should I get more than that?

You might not need that many, the above corresponds to the KS "Legacy speaker" pledge which offered a combination of magi's chests and archives cases:
- 2 chests + 6 cases
- or 3 chests + 5 cases
- or 4 chests + 4 cases

So originally the choice would depend with how many people you plan to play since 1 chest is designed for 2 players.
Actually I am still hesitating between 2+6 or 3+5.

Oh yeah and I used the term Master's set wrongly, the new name is Magi's set.
Fixed it.

For those with concerns about line for life international shipping. I know we are going to be trying to work out regional distribution points so that line for life people around the world can pick their items up/have shipped from a regional retailer/distributor, or a regional games convention. Don't quote me on it but this issue has definitely been discussed. We want to make it as easy and painless as possible to keep our line for life guys stocked up.

Late to the party, but glad to be drawn in by the latest BGG ad blitz. Played through the P&P walkthrough and had a blast but I was pretty much hooked by the pure thematic overload right from the start. Just post-KS pre-ordered a Master's Set and an additional Magi's Chest to have 4 codices. Seems the OP and I are on a similar page.

While I expect this will be a solid 2-4 player system (really enjoy the PvP/PvE/Co-op/1-vs-many play options!), I'm probably most excited about the integrated solitaire capability. I love a good tactical card game, and it is one of the few systems in my collection that as of yet doesn't provide a good solo option. I really hope ST fills that void.

I shared my KS Speaker Legacy order with some friends.
My portion is
1 Magi's chest
2 Archive cases
Line for life \o/

After the account system gets updated, going to add another Magi's chest to support 4 player games. And more of that core set goodness.

It is stupid cheap right now and a crime not to!
