Hi,

I'm one of the early backers of the game and at the time I selected a Collector's Edition. Now I'm delighted to see that the collector's edition is really nice. Still I have a few questions because I kinda remember that the Kickstarter CE is supposed to contain an Ale mug and a Ouija board. Those items are not present in the newly anounced CE but seem to be replaced by a statue and a gamemaster screen.

Should I understand that the rewards have been swaped in the Kickstarter edition too? Or is it two fairly different CEs?

Thanks

Yes, this is the only CE design.

Ok, so the rewards have been changed. Thanks for the info

Hi guys! We started looking into making a different collector's edition once we figured out we couldn't do the ouija board (there is a trademark problem with that) and I think we announced that during the campaign. We wanted to make something very special for our higher level backers off high value. We started looking at the mugs but the results were disappointing and eventually we evolved towards the (in my eyes very very cool) figurine. An incredible amount of work went into making sure everything is of super-high quality and we're very proud of it. Obviously if you are discontent and really wanted to get that mug, we will reimburse you. All you need to do is send a message to kickstarter@larian.com.

As always, Larian is a real class act about how they handle everything. Very impressed.

And what happened to the "sticker pack featuring unique art" that was supposed to be part of this CE (at least for the Kickstarter people)? I see no mention of that anymore. Will it still be included? Or is that gone too?

follow-up: I just saw that Raze posted this in the Kickstarter comments section about the sticker pack:

"I guess the metal plate could be considered a replacement for the sticker pack, depending on whether you'd actually use them."


So I guess that answers that... no sticker pack either. frown

I knew checking the site on a daily basis for a physical release, despite saying there won't be a boxed version way back, was worth it.

I'm just chiming in to thank you good folks for including this option for fans who missed the Kickstarter.

Thank you for mentioning this. When DOS2 Kickstarter came about I was juggling two mortgages. Last night I checked in on DOS2 and saw it was releasing in a couple weeks. Shame there won't be any physical copies.
