    I like the idea of the printable figures, gate and dhd. I can't wait to hear about the Avesguard and Felguard too.

    The Wolfguard is serving the Goa'uld Wepwawet. Here you can read about the mythological background :
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wepwawet
    "I was hoping for another day. Looks like we just got a whole lot more than that. Let's not waste it."

    "Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment."

    "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."

      I am just guessing whether the Felguard means Feline guard. So do they serve Bastet?
      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bastet
      They wanted to introduce them in Stargate : Worlds too.

      While the Aveguard is tricky as any bird could be chosen from the mythology. The best choice would be Thoth (and the Ibis Guard), but he has served Anubis in the Stargate lore and he was not showing up until season 7. Maybe they will choose a minor god like Bennu :

      I like mythology so I hope we get more stuffs in the adventures.

        Of all the Egyptian gods they could choose, Bastet and Thoth just seem wrong.

          We will see who they will choose. Those were only my guesses. Wepwawet was directly mentioned in a previous kickstarter email. Probably the newly introduced Goa'uld will be killed off at the end of the campaign.

          I have spent 90 dollars on this project, while the full and best pack would have cost 210 dollars. This new bundle sounds really greedy to be honest. Even these 90 dollars are way too expensive for a special edition book, but I have said okay, I will support it in spite of my doubts.

            Zero dollars cause I forgot... I've had real life fish to fry which means I also forgot to fill a subscription for my ADD medication so yeah... kickstarter didn't even cross my mind again.

            However, doesn't mean I wouldn't be up for a game round at some point... you know, the Stargate RPG for Dummies round.

              I backed the $60 level, but once the pledge manager comes around I'll probably throw a bunch more money at it.

              I'm glad to see this did so well. Absolutely smashed that goal and those stretch goals. Hopefully the actual support for the game from company and fanbase continues.

                  I hope the quality of the rpg will deseve trust, love and support of the SG fandom. This success can be a sign how much people want more Stargate.

                  I don't know what are the plans for later, but I hope they will consider "canon" the names about season 1-3 events what the AEG RPG has established. They have said there will be a chapter about season 1-6 summary in the Phoenix rulebook. Maybe they should consider a season guide for later where every episode would have a detailed summary with potential story, location and NPC ideas which could be revisited or continued in Phoenix stories.

                  It is nice they have made 3 different 3d printable packs of Jaffa guards. I hope they will create more (like kull warriors, Tok'Ra tunnels, Tok'Ra warriors , Replicators, Jaffa guards of Apophis, Baal, Yu, Anubis etc., monsters pack).

                  It would be also nice to create traditional 2d printable maps, tiles, objects to support the "episodes".

                        I have pleged myself to the limited edition for 90 dollars. This was already a pure robbery as I could have bought 2 games from it, but okay, fine, I will support this rpg as we live only just once. I spend money on other stuffs, so I have said my favorie franchise deserve my support. Then they have charged me an additional 25 dollars for shipping the book to the UK in April. Obviously I haven't chosen more add-on for even more money as I was not planning to spend 150-200 or even more dollars on this project. So I am happy and sad at the same time as I have never bought such an expensive book in my life, so I hope it will be worth of it. This was the first time I have supported a campaign, just I am disappointed how income orientated is their whole business model.

                          Phew... am I glad I did not commit to any of it after all -- seems my priorities are with a different franchise... and company which uses that intellectual property for something I definitely do spend quality time with. And also don't have to spend extra cash on shipping.

                          Unfortunately, money makes the world go round... or so they tell us.
