@Anthony I'll post the pic of the back of the Syclopt boss next week.
We are roughly scheduling the Myth expansions to go up on KS end of Aug/beginning of September.

Time to set aside some money.

I already know that Donnchadh will reappear in the next KS campaign but I hope that other KS exclusives will still unique to the original campaign and that they will not do the encore for those.

I didn't understand it as the miniature would reappear necessarily.  However, new quests and such would be added to his storyline.  That's just how I read the comments about Duncan's character.

From the KS comments:
"Donnchadh is KS only. When, and if, we do another Myth KS we can offer Donnchadh as an add-on, but he won't be available at retail."

To me, that sounds like the miniature will be available as well...

if they keep Donnchadh alive, they will have to make the initial product available to people that are new to Myth. Exclusive to KS, fine, but future campaigns need to offer it.
Same goes for many of the exclusives. What if they make a new character type or two (aka Druid) and they offer a metal token; wouldn't others that are now joining the bandwagon want the rest of the metal tokens as well? I know just one or two would bug me....
Bottom line, as long as they are not selling them retail they are doing right by me.

Anything related to Donnchadh is always going to be run through a KS. With the next KS coming in Aug/Sept this year, they will introduce the new concept and cards then. Anyone participating will likely receive this as a result of participating in the KS. By having as an add-on, anyone who missed the inital KS could order the Donnchadh character so they can take advantage. Donnchadh should never see retail, only be available to anyone who kickstarts anywhere along the way.

It makes sense, since he came about strictly through KS, and like Connor, belongs in that framework. If the people who buy retail first want to have access, they can always jump aboard on the next KS.

My hope is that there will be more opportunities like the trickster level in the future expansions as well. :)

I'm kinda scared. This last KS took $300 or so from my wallet. Next fall, my wife will have a better job, and I'll have gotten a hefty raise (hurray for open pay scale!).

Lol. I understand the feeling. Fortunately my wife should be working next year (no pay raises in sight for me though...) so we should have a have a bit more spending money. Nevertheless, a part of me is hoping that the expansion KS will be slightly smaller in scope. I'm not sure I could justify (to myself or the wife) another $300 for an expansion.

Fortunately, I see it being a bit smaller in scope, simply because we have so many types of minions and such right there, I see it adding more to the heroes and their development so we can actually fight some of the bosses and such we already have.

Next year is the opposite for me: I get a payraise, but... the wife goes to part-time in order to take care of the baby that's getting here in April.  I'm really hoping the next KS is scaled back, more of an expansion and not a true sequel.
Don't listen to anything I say.  I'm still a n00b.

Besides upgraded heroes and maybe new enemy types, what else can we expect in an expansion?
