While it's currently overshadowed by the crazily successful end of the Torment: Tides of Numenera Kickstarter campaign, Richard Garriot's own Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is slowly reaching its end, and has received its 22th update, covering some new rewards for the campaign. Here's a snip:
We added an all digital version of the Explorer Tier for all of you that wanted Episodes 4 & 5 included in the Explorer tier, but didn't want the hassle of shipping physical goods! We even dropped the price to $120!
Many of you may get all glassy eyed and nostalgic when you hear we added a special Crystal Sword to the $60 tier that has the ability to kill almost any enemy you encounter (single use)! And with Early Skill Access available at the $50 tier (and above), you'll be the envy of all the players when they see you wielding new skills they don't yet have access to!
Not only are we crowdsourcing content from users but we're also crowd sharing! At least once a month we will release Unity content packs for download by those at the Developer tier (and above)! These Unity content packs contain a large number of game assets which can be used, free of charge in your own creations. Now that's a sweet deal!
Many of you suggested we add a tier to bridge the gap between the $500 Village house and $1500 Town house tier, so we added the $750 KNIGHT tier, which comes with a high-end, unique Village level Founder's home, appropriate to their stature as a Knight, complete with their very own house servant!
We also added a bunch of new rewards for all the SotA Homeowners, including unique high-end houses, house pets, house servants, unique furniture, and special Founder's Expert-level Crafting Stations!
