So far we only really use quests to send you places. There's plenty of events and encounters and stuff just spread across the map but they're not tied to any quests.

However I like your idea and I have been feeling like our events are too self-contained, I'll put some effort into involving the world map more in some of our quests in the future.

Well... what's the point of the world map if it's just going between x and y all the time?

I remember playing the early prototype thing, and I seem to remember that was very much about actually finding places on your own and it would be a shame if this element was lost.

Yay indeed :-)

Aterdux finally mentioned us in one of their updates, and that gave us a nice boost. Since our games are pretty similar in many respects, there should be a big overlap between their fans and ours.

Voted and good luck. It's a bit more exposure anyway. :)

RPS have posted an article about Expeditions Conquistador!

I'm going to read it now.

EDIT: he's rather positive about the game, which is great. Let's hope it directs a large number of new backers to the game, or that it convinces backers to increase their pledge :)

Wow, we got a loooot of money from that article. If a couple more of those sites we sent the press build will cover us too this week, we're looking pretty good!

Holy Crap! There's only 880 and change 'til 60,000 is reached. The best single day in pledges. Keep those letters and cards [appropriate currency] rolling in.

You guys are so close.

The least you have collected on any 8 day stretch is around 5000$.

Raising 5 grand for anything is pretty hard, but it's ridiculously close compared to where you started. I hope you can make it somehow.

What's remarkable is that total pledges amount to $60,477 while the number of backers times the pledge amount for a given reward equals only $41,320. In other words, on average people should pay 50% more than the minimum pledge amount associated with a given reward level. Which seems a bit odd.

That might be people increasing their pledges without increasing it enough to get the next reward level?

That, or pledging a lot without asking for a reward (it's an option). Or a bunch of people who support less than $15...
Can somebody tell me how I can get a custom avatar?
Oh wait, I already got one...
