Great stuff.
Any chance of letting us know the time? Last time I made sure to be waiting in an Italian restaurants with good WiFi as we had just moved and no internet yet. That worked a treat :)

Looking forward to this new campaign.

Right you guys,
You both say that you love the game, but what do you love about it? I am definitely going to back it, but it might be useful if you try and sell me and others on what makes this good.

Many thanks in advance.

Nice!
Can't wait. I already talked my friend to back it, so you better create a great KS. He' s much bigger than me :D
I wish you luck!

It is my first LCG, so I cannot compare to other games.

But I like the tactical component and of course the setting. It's not only combat (though mainly) in the adventure mode but also action and story in between.

It feels a bit like playing old school dungeon crawl RPGs :)

I'm a little close to the material, so take my opinions with a grain of salt. ;)

It's sort of like Sentinels of the Multiverse in that each Hero has their own deck, but then it adds in the roleplaying elements of being able to adjust the characters and their decks as they gain experience. And on top of that you can (if you like) customize the decks more thoroughly using the included deck construction guidelines. So you could play it more like an LCG, or you could choose not to if you don't care for constructing decks.

I enjoy the duel mode, but the adventure mode is really what gets me. That part of the game is like nothing else out there, because there's actually story going on (and skill checks!) that make it more like a roleplaying game. There are not many games out there that actually have you reading and playing a story. (Betrayal at House on the Hill does it a little bit, but only at two points in the game.)

From a design perspective, I appreciate the Endurance mechanic. I like the depth of strategy involved in the decision of what to put down, and I think it does a good job of balancing escalating power with diminishing resources.

That sounds great,
I am definitely in on Thursday and I am looking forward to seeing what info I can gleam from the Kickstarter page. All in all that sounds rather promising and also the fact that the Kickstarter will include some of the expansions, meaning that we hopefully have enough cards to actually do some decent Deck Building.
