Day 2: Unlocks, Stretch Goals, And A Cacophonous Sound!

February 25, 2021 3 min read

Happy Day 2, everyone! What a start! We can't believe it!

Thanks for joining us on this incredible journey and trusting us enough to support the game we've worked so hard to create!

We apologize for not being more active in the comments yesterday, we were running on fumes and did everything we could just to get the campaign launched and get an update out! We appreciate all of you wokring togetherr to answer eachothers questions.

Ok! Announcement!

Free miniature day is over!

If you're backer #7982 or lower, you get the Silvia miniature for free! Even if you only pledged $1, so long as you upgrade your pledge to our Through the Portal pledge level or higher, you'll get this figure as part of your pledge for free. We'll be taking care of everything on the back end using the pledge manager post campaign. 

(If you missed it, Silvia's now available as an Add-On for $15!)

"Nymph society expected Alana to embrace her short life span, and to face death with open arms, like it was something to be celebrated. Something that awful shouldn’t be glorified. Alana wouldn’t have it. She searched for a way to stop it. She researched the Middara's humans and longed for what they had; to never age, to live forever. She'd have it one way or another."

For our Day 2 unlock, we will be adding a figure to the KS2 Promo Box for the Alana and Casithus Standee, featured in Unintentional Malum: Act 1. This figure will be a big, scary 2x2 miniature! 

To be clear, this figure is part of the KS2 Promo Box and is being given away for free as part of every pledge level at the "Through the Portal" level or higher. 

The cardboard standee version that is already a part of the contents of Unintentional Malum: Act 1 will remain a standee. 

Wow! We are amazed at the explosion of this campaign! We are blowing through these Stretch Goals faster than we ever imagined!

For our 7500 backer Stretch Goal, we will be unlocking another FREE Upgrade to the KS2 Promobox!

This upgrade provides a booklet with all the rules to turn Middara into a skirmish game both as a Side Quest as well as a casual game that can be played outside of our Adventure Mode. The Side Quests feature the Bellicose Arena and will pit players against each other in thematically appropriate locations of our game world. 

Depending on the choices they made, our Returning Backers who've made it through Chapter 3 of Act 1 might know a bit about Bellicose Arena in Middara already.

Bellicose Cubes

"Bellicose cubes erect magical arenas made through Curor rituals. They are fairly uncommon due to the high cost of crafting one, but almost all of the institutes and most large cities across Middara have one. 

To use a bellicose cube, one must make a small blood sacrifice into a basin. This attunes them to the cube until they exit. Once attuned, the cube protects them from taking any serious damage. This makes the cube ideal for combat training. That being said, getting hurt in the bellicose cube still causes pain, and it is not impossible to be killed by something sufficiently powerful. 

The cubes are not only used for combat training. Many also use them for sport. There are even widely followed bellicose leagues that operates across Middara. Despite the cube's protection, combatants are still regularly incapacitated in these fights. Deaths is rare, but a sufficient amount of pain can take even the most stalwart warrior out of the fight. 

While the bellicose cube seems like an invaluable thing for an adventurer to have, the amount of time it takes to set up an arena makes them highly impractical to take on the move."

The people have spoken!
