The Sapphire ($20) tier and above guarantees a digital version of the game at launch, so all tiers from Sapphire ($20) and up also come with three months of premium subscription to play on the official servers. All backers from the Sapphire tier and up also will get to play the pre-alpha version over a two-week period after the Kickstarter campaign succeeds.I plan on backing, I just haven't decided on the amount yet. If I'm not mistaken for just a small backing of $20.00 you get the game, three months of play time on the official citadel shards when it goes live, and a chance to play while it is in Alpha Mode? Can you please clarify this?
This is where The Immortals tiers come in. The Immortals is our early adopter group who will have access to pre-alpha playtests beyond the two weeks everyone else (above Sapphire) receives. The Immortals will also work closely with the Citadel team to provide feedback throughout the development process. They, along with the Early Modders and Early Admins, will truly help us shape the game content.Not to mention the satisfaction that you got to help get a brand new game and concept get off the ground. Also once Shards reaches its quota on Kickstart, will we as backers be able to play on Shards on a regular basis, like the Test Center in UO? Or will it just be for designated events, until it goes live?
Everyone always wants to know about the familiar and not the extra player.I'm interested in the backers pack that includes an extra player slot and a familiar. Are you gonna give any more info on what this familiar might be or what it could possibly do? Or is this all meant to be a surprise.
