Minor Shipping Updates and Lavon Rising Campaign

Hello, folks!

It'€™s a busy day for us and we have a lot of ground to cover, so let'€™s get to it!

UK Shipping

QML has finally confirmed that Spiral will begin shipping next week (the week of July 5th). It'€™s later than we expected, but that'€™s well beyond par for the course at this point.

Canada Shipping

The shipping container with Canadian games was supposed to depart on a boat today. I'€™ve asked for confirmation from QML; we'€™ll let folks know as soon as we hear.

Replacements

 Archon is about halfway through sending out replacements for damaged/missing items (though as the last of the backers receive their pledges, I'€™m sure we'€™ll get a few more requests).

Lavon Rising Campaign Has Launched and Prior Backer Details

The Lavon Rising campaign has launched on Gamefound, you can check it out here: https://gamefound.com/projects/lazy-squire-games/wild-assent-lavon-rising#/

If you log into Gamefound using the same email address you had in CrowdOx, you should already see two '€œReturning Backer'€ pledges. If you are logged in with the same email and still don'€™t see the pledges, please reach out to support@lazysquire.gamesand we'€™ll get you sorted. We can also transfer your email if you already had a Gamefound account with a different email, etc. Also, you all should have a $1 credit (it was needed for the email upload), but I wasn'€™t able to confirm that with Gamefound before their workday was over.

Below is what you need to know about the two extra pledges, but first things first: Lavon Rising is an expansion to Wild Assent. It uses content from both the Wild Assent core game and the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion. It is 100% not standalone (it doesn'€™t even have dice). That said, if you already have the core game and the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion (Champion pledge), you can buy Lavon Rising by itself and have no issues, gameplay-wise (we'€™ll get to the scale issue below). These pledges (and everything they entail) will be available for previous backers until we close the pledge manager for Wave 1.



Returning Backers Pledge (All Original Content & Lavon Rising)

This pledge is good for both Gladiator (core game only) and Champion (Core and SotS expansion) backers who want the new miniatures and/or the fully printed translations. You will receive the core game, the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion, the new Dangers of the Wilds box (see below), the Lavon Rising expansion, all stretch goals (Wave 1 & Wave 2) & daily unlocks and all freebies (see below).

Returning Backers Pledge (Lavon Rising Only)

This pledge should only be considered by Champion Pledge (Core and SotS expansion) owners who don'€™t care about miniature scale or translations. It includes the new Dangers of the Wilds box (see below), the Lavon Rising expansion, all stretch goals (Wave 1 & Wave 2) and all freebies (see below).

Dangers of the Wilds

We decided to sweeten the deal for the Shadow of the Silvestrem expansion and added a new box, Dangers of the Wilds, which includes duplicates of a lot of the original campaign creatures (and some new instinct cards) to be used in the new Nightmare mode. This is free with either returning backer pledge.

Freebies

The free '€œFollow us on Gamefound'€ mini from the pre-campaign (Dalkerta War-Rider) and the 72-hour Early Bird reward (Mist Terror) as well as any other freebies we offer during the campaign can be considered part of your pledge (no, you don'€™t get two if you followed or what-have-you), as long as you pledge before the pledge manager closes for Wave 1.

Lavon Rising Review & Gameplay

We sent a Lavon Rising demo to BoardGameCo and a wild Quackalope appeared. You can watch Alex and Jesse both play the game and talk about their experiences (they liked it a lot):

I think that just about covers it. I'll be around in the comments to answer any questions and we'll be back as soon as we have any more fulfilment news. Until then, we'll see you in the Wilds (it's about to get a lot more crowded).
