Hello, everyone.
I've been disconnected for months. Away from news and stuff.

I've seen this DEFIANCE logo all around, but I still don't know what is it. Is this a INFINITY campaign or something?

Right behind you.

It's a Kickstarter for a boardgame that's not really a boardgame but another avenue to release most of the Shasvastii range.

It's a dungeon crawl boardgame with enemy AI so there's no need for a GM to run it.

That and what Kan stated.

It is a cooperative board game where players delve into dangerous situations with hero characters to fight the evil Shasvastii. The NPCs all have AI which guides their movement and actions (think Zombicide: Black Plague). It will use Aristeia dice. The base game comes with 12 models, the big box comes with 32. So far we know that there will hero model for Yu Jing, PanO, Nomads and Ariadna. There will be stretch goals which will include an additional hero for Aleph and Haq. CB is not intending to release this game in stores, it will be Kickstarter only.

Not releasing in stores is a bad idea. Although releasing a separate, cost effective version in stores later after the response is gauged is reasonable.

In theory, the game will expand to include other factions and locations and become a companion for Infinity for those who desire something more "rules lite" in the Infinity universe.

Are they not posting when the stretch goals are unlocked? Or am I just missing the actual goal posts for them somewhere?

No clue about the game proper, but if you want to play the Shesvasti, its a pretty great collection.

I'm in for the game, I like the minis, anything else is a bonus.

Seems to have funded already too.

I know it is early and all that, but the price vs. the contents sure is light.

Stretch goals are going to have to do some serious lifting here...

The core set feels a little light. The collectors set is much more what I think most people are expecting. That one is at least a good price if you're going to use it to play Infinity as well.

This is what we call TESEUM GOALS - but what is this about Teseum Goals? They’re unlockable content we’ve made available for our backers and followers, asking nothing in return, for we -at Corvus Belli- are renowned for caring about our community and for this campaign we wanted to keep them in mind more than ever.

Really? Seems about on par with something like Imperial Assault. The core box has half the miniatures, but they are metal...

There's no point in having two different versions, since they've said it's a Kickstarter exclusive at the outset.

They have different versions because the core-only box is only €100, which might be in the impulse buy range for some people who want to play the game and don't mind having cardboard tokens for all the bad guys. It's the same reason why the scenery pack is optional. Some people don't want to pay more for things they won't use.

You already do that with Infinity to begin with, thanks to the way they sell stuff.

They know that people aren't interested in cardboard tokens.

I assume the Core Box is still a playable game right? Makes it a better purchase that primarily want the heros for Infinity but don't really want a Shesvasti collection.

But they do know people might only be interested in the game and getting their paws on the main hero models. If you have no interest in playing Shasvasti, then why bother with the bigger box (besides selling the models later on). Although admittedly, the 200 dollar box is just so much better value for money, even if you are not interested in Shasvasti.

I'm finally getting over this mentality. Not sure if I'm getting any of it at this point, but if I do I'll probably go smaller. Sadly, as someone who loves my Nomads, that Robat is making it hard to be happy with the core.

If you want that robot, I think you need to think about how much you will pay on the secondary market for the model? Might be worth it to just buy the Collector's Pledge.

Of course I AM interested in Shasvasti, so I'll probably be in for this one eventually.

No need to pledge now though - or I could pledge now and see ho wit goes?

That's the eternal question. Really focused the last couple years on not outstripping my capacity to paint and play. It's cool and all, but not exactly a critical purchase by any means.

Yeah it does not look like they made any limited quantities pledges, so you can always pledge at the end of the 20 days. The trick with that is remembering that you were going to pledge before the 20 days are up (something I often forget).

I still have 2 boxes of O-12 to paint, so that ship has sailed for me
