The long awaited day has arrived. In a few hours the HeroQuest 25th Anniversary edition crodwfunding campaign at Lánzanos will come to an end, and it will do it very close to doubling the former funding record in Spain and Latin America. As we write these lines we have already raised a 1,077% of our initial goal of 58,000 euros, that is, 625,163 euros that put us on the European Top 10. No need to say that without you, our heroic backers, none of this would have been possible and that is why, in the name of Adolfo, Alejandro, Alex, Cabell, Carlos, Cristina, Dani, Dionisio, Emilio, Igor, Isabel, Josep, Juanmi, Manuel, Marcos, Miguel, Pablo and Victor we want to say once more… THANKS! YOU ARE THE BEST! We won’t disappoint you.
Before moving on to the development diary that would be really anticlimactic: we won’t end this campaign today, sunday, at 11:59 pm after all, but we are going to prolong it three more days until Febuary the 12th. The poor boys at Lánzanos have a really tough task ahead of them to process all the payments, and it seems it is easier to do so with the campaign still running. We want to thank them as well for their effort and dedication during this last month and a half, in which they have dutifully covered many of our needs.
And now let’s move on to the miniature, the Orc Big Boss, one of the unique monsters from the basic box. Wait a second… Unique monster? What does it mean? Clear enough, isn’t it? They are enemies with full names that, as such, will have their own monster sheets with control wheels similar to those owned by the adventurers. This was another surprise we were keeping to ourselves, but we can’t keep keep quiet when we have got a good secret… Can you blame us for that?
We have updated the final list of components included in the Funder Edition to reflect this fact, that is going to affect the Gargoyle, the Primordial Chaos Sorcerer, the Wraith and the Orc Big Boss from the basic box, and the Goblin Leader, the Spider Queen, the Vampire and Vampiress, Morcar, Zargon, the Great Wyrm and She from the Level 3 rewards.
The Orc Big Boss is bulky and brutal, those are just the required virtues in becoming the leader of a whole orc clan worthy of that name. Under him, literally one head below him, there are the 8 orc warriors that follow him in all his raids: a couple of crossbowmen (orc high tech, masters of recycling), another pair with two-handed weapons and the remaining four with a combination of short swords, shields and any other thing that helps in their bloodthirsty plans.
PS: Before saying goodbye we also want to give a special thanks to the people a the Heroquest.es forum and its stoic moderators who have played an invaluable role during this campaign. You have been the ones who kept the HeroQuest flame burning bright during all these years. Together we can accomplish great things. Thanks a lot to you too!
