Questions for MERCS
« on: April 26, 2013, 12:07:47 AM »
I tried to stay away from game mechanics and keep the questions light and fun in my Q&A, and I don't want to send anymore questions to MERCS for a bit (let them rest), but I think having a thread to start compiling questions would be a good thing for the future.  We probably need to get an FAQ sticky thread together as well.  What I'd hope is that we could actually reduce the total number of emails and questions going to MERCS on a daily basis.  Although they are more than generous with their time, every minute spent answering questions is a minute away from their families and a minute not working on the game.

So, what things would you like to know from MERCS?

I would like to know why the Captain Pledge level is shipping in Jan 2015 when the others are shipping in January 2014  ;D.

Ok I know this was a joke S0ldierofurtune but the thought of going "okay run into my fist really hard for me" is in my head. Just remember "it's a typo"
It's a typo...

What will be the focus of the drake deck?  Why aren't there still more add-on's and stretch goals being released on a daily basis? What am I supposed to do with my lunch breaks now?
I can't wait for this signature to be filled with links to gameplay variants.

Will they make the hero decks available to purchase separately?

The Murphy Bat is a plastic whiffle ball bat filled with concrete. I used said bat to threaten people who were in danger of invoking Murphy's Law while the kickstarter was up.

Thanks ;)

So, a question about the optionals:

https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/assets/000/538/565/06bb886b7be2491b8492d952b1131bc9_large.jpg

Are these 6 tiles double sided? Or are these 3 boards with 6 sides as shown here?

And what are the 3 agents of darkness for?

edit: removed image, didn't realise they weren't seperate images!

It's 6 tiles.  They will definitely be double sided, since the backs of some of them will be layovers to go on top of other tiles.  For example a hallway tile will double as a table tile so you can put a table in the middle of a large room.

The agents of darkness are kind of fuzzy right now.  It's 3 miniatures with special rules.  They are basically recurring antagonists that stalk the heroes and show up at inopportune times.

Not to be a jerk, but can we remove that image from the thread and link to it instead? It's kinda big-ish and doesn't contribute a ton to the discussion.

Agents sound like Nemesis monsters in KD to me.
