I have to say that, for now, the delphi council box is very low value ...

On top of the game master package, there is only :

Delphi Council Cargo Box - (Print, see text)
20 Possibilities (High Quality Poker Chips with unique art, Physical)
Day One Adventures (Print + PDF)
Poster Map of the Possibility Wars (Print + PDF)
A "tear off" pad of full-color character sheets (Print)


For 90$ more shipping included ... It's expensive ... very expensive. And there are by now no stretch goal beyond the day one adventures that was announced as included in the box. Even the high lord mini are already not included.

Well, will have to wait for choose a pledge, but by now, it's a very strange way to start, and i fear that if there is no chance in this, we could see delphi box being exchanged for GM level pledge very fast.

Well they are a hairsbreadth from smashing the $80k pledge marker.
So I think that many more stretch goals are due to get reached before this kickstarter finishes.

As far as I can read the stretch goals are all committed for the Cargo Box by default and get added to the premium list as and when the goals are reached and the site updates.

Also the adventure book is a 144pg hardcover.
The poster is a massive dry/wet marker compatible and double sided.
The 50 sheet character pack is quite chunky too.

That would probably set you back the better part of $90 seperately.

Was at 82k inside the 6 minutes following your post, when I backed.

So, I increased my pledge for a red leather version of the book. When I got my confirmation, I'm not sure that my pledge was increased sufficiently. There may be something wonky with how it is handling shipping when you over-pledge.

Won't lie: a little sad I forgot my notifications would be muted during work, and did not get in sooner. All the seats on the council were gone before I arrived. Not sure I could've scraped together the funds, but it would've spurred me along to ensure I get to GenCon this year.

From all reports the 10 Delphi council positions were filled within about 15 minutes of the kickstarter launch.

I think it was closer to 30 minutes but yes, they went really fast.

Especially given the success of today, I'm pretty confident that the Cargo Box will be a great value once we're finished.

Day one is 30$, map is 20$ and the character pack is a cheap 5$. The possibilities token cost 20 $ (seems to me very expensive but they are each unique, on a small production, and that may be ok ... never have buyed chip before). Only the box has no price has an add on for now, and we cannot know how much we will have to add in shipping.
