Mythic Legions Tactics - Monthly Update: Oct 2021
18 days ago – Sat, Oct 02, 2021 at 05:28:03 PM

Hello Backers,

This being our first monthly update, we wanted to give everyone a full comprehensive view on both all physical goods and Mythic Legions Tactics the video game.


Update Summary

  • Ongoing Updates
  • Backerkit Survey & Shipping
  • Game Character Linage
  • Game Battle Mechanics
  • Game Locations Info
  • Game Weapons and Armor

Ongoing Updates

We will be providing a monthly update on the 1st of every month like this one that will include several larger pieces of information. This update will be submitted to the Kickstarter update section as well as sent to all Forge Founders via newsletter. On top of this monthly update, we will be providing more weekly information via our Discord channel and our other social channels. Check us out on all of them to stay on top of all Mythic Legions Tactics news!


Backerkit Survey & Shipping

Survey - We have completed the Backerkit setup, pre-order store, and selection survey. We have also sent out the 5% smoke test emails that Backerkit requires us to send to some of you. Some of you should have received this email today for your survey! Should you receive it, please fill it out and let us know if there are any issues. If we do not hear about any issues by tomorrow at this time, we will send the full survey out to everyone! Also, due to the delay on the survey release approval from Backerkit, we have extended the Physical items Add Ons for additional purchase deadline by one week to Oct 8th at midnight.


Shipping- On shipping, as it was noted on the campaign, shipping was not included in the purchase price in the campaign so it will be added on as a separate cost once we are 30 days away from delivery of all physical goods. As such the shipping cost will not be calculated or processed on this survey. All shipping costs will be charged next year when we are 30 days away from shipping everything out. This way we will be able to provide everyone with the most accurate shipping costs instead of having to charge higher shipping costs now to cover for potential rising shipping costs in the future. The current estimate delivery date in in March 2022, so estimated shipping costs is estimated for Feb 2022.


Game Character Lineage

For the games release, we now have finalized the 7 playable lineages! These include the following:

  • Human
  • Elf
  • Dwarf
  • Orc
  • Goblin
  • Vampire
  • Skeleton

Each lineage includes Male and Female versions, and each one includes 4 full sets of armor when unlocked. If you have purchased the Base or Deluxe game versions, all 7 lineages with armor sets are included in your purchase and are automatically unlocked. Over the next few months, we will begin showing more finalized versions of each, their armors, and overall impact in the game.


Game Battle Mechanics

The heart of the game are the battle mechanics. As most everyone has seen from the videos, the game is a turn-based tactics game. However, we are adding in some additional strategy elements we believe will help propel the game.


Action Points - First, we have implemented something called an action point system. Each character will have a certain number of action points per turn based on their stats. Each thing a character can do uses a certain amount of action points. Moving around the grid, attacking, using a skill, etc… all have a certain number of action points they can use. As an example, if you wanted to move your character really far, you could use all of your action points to move much further than if you want to move a shorter distance and then attack. This mechanic will get explained more in future updates with videos and tutorials.

Battle Templates - The second thing we are adding is one of the stretch goals that was unlocked which we refer to as battle templates. These are strategy templates that allows each player to essentially change the game from a turn-based game into an auto-battling or what is sometimes referred to as auto-chess game. It is a strategy of taking the time to setup each character’s actions as well as team-based actions before a battle happens and then seeing if your template works to defeat the enemy. Again, more information on this will be explained in future updates with videos and tutorials.

We have several additional mechanics that we are currently testing and want to be sure will fit the game before we announce them!



Game Location Info

As we indicated in the campaign, we will have 5 unlocked factions with 30+ battles each in the single player version of the game. This means we will have a lot of various locations. Some unique and others just general locations like forest, plains, mountains, etc… The unique locations will be places that everyone who is a Mythic Legions fan will love. A few of the pre-production locations are shown below.


Castle Silverhorn

Aetherhold

Game Weapons and Armor

Not much to talk about here. Going to just show some cool weapons and armor!

Well, that is the update for now! Sorry if our grammar and explanation wasn’t great, we are developers of video games after all! We are looking forward to providing you all with an amazing game, and thank you all for your continued support.


Best,

Thank You and Next Steps
about 2 months ago – Wed, Sep 01, 2021 at 08:21:13 PM

Hey Backers,

Wow!  What an amazing rally to end the campaign.  We would like to thank each of you for your support.  It means a great deal to us, and we look forward to proving it to you by providing you with an amazing game as well as unbelievable figures.  

Next Steps

There are a few immediate items to let you know.  

1. Discord: 

  - As we stated in our update yesterday, we are doing a "Kickstarter Campaign Success Party" on Discord tomorrow (Thurs night 9/2 at 9pm EST).  We would love for any each of you to join us on Discord even if it is just to come by and say hi.  Here is our Discord link - https://discord.gg/VsgEB2Ky  (link does expire so if you don't get to it in time, just message us and we can send you another one.)

  - Discord will also be where we weekly updates not only on the game progress, but also on Mythic Legions as a whole!  Join us every Thurs night for Tactics Thurs on Discord.


2. BackerKit:  We have successfully setup BackerKit.  There are a few parts to this, so I will detail them below.  

  - Reward Selections and Add Ons: We plan to send out the Survey for your selections as well as to select any add ons within the next 1-2 weeks.  These selections will set any and all options you wish for your purchases.  We need to solidify all Physical product selections and add ons (Action Figures, Sigil Coins, T-Shirts, and Cloth Map) within the next 30-45 days so we can submit everything to manufacturing.  So be on the look out for the survey to make you selections!

  - Pre-Order Store:  We have also launched the BackerKit Pre-Order store for anyone who missed out on the Kickstarter for any final orders.  If you know anyone who missed the campaign and wishes to purchase something, please forward alone this link -  Preorder Mythic Legions Tactics: War of the Aetherblade on BackerKit


3. Updates:  

  - In an effort to not spam you but keep you updated on our game progress as well as any other announcements, we plan to do 1 Update per month.  If for some reason we have to do more than 1, we apologize ahead of time.   Our focus will be to provide you with a monthly breakdown of progress on everything from game progress, shipping of physical goods, and anything else that you may need to know.  


4. Stretch Goals:  

  - The rally at the end unlocked several additional stretch goals!  We didn't get to update the graphic before it ended so we have provided the updated graphic below of the unlocked goals.  

  - In addition, we would like to announce that all additional Add On purchases as well as any new purchases from the Pre-Order store will all count towards Stretch Goals!  We are very close to the $285k goal, and could even unlock the $300k XBOX goal this way!  Look for additional updated stretch goals to be added on top of those as well if we reach them!

5. Social Goals:

  - Same with the Stretch Goals, we didn't get to update the graphic during the campaign, so we are providing the update now.  

  - Again, just like the Stretch Goals, we are extending the Social Goals to BackerKit so we can continue to unlock them!

Again, we want to thank all of you for your continued support.  It means so much to us not only to make this game as amazing as possible, but to extend this world for all of you to experience.  Have a great rest of the week, and we truly appreciate all of you.


Best,

4H and Great Hall Game Studios

First, BackerKit is being finalized right now.  We will post the link to it on the campaign as soon as it is open (we are working to get it open asap.)  As soon as it is live, you will be able to choose your options for all of your selections within the campaign.  This includes any additional add-ons you want to make to your order!


Second, we are doing a "Kickstarter Campaign Success Party" on Discord on Thurs night 9/2 at 9pm EST.  We would love for any each of you to join us on Discord even if it is just to come by and say hi.  Here is our Discord link - https://discord.gg/VsgEB2Ky  (link does expire so if you don't get to it in time, just message us and we can send you another one.)
