Hello, this is for reference only and contains the different pledge levels for the Post Kickstarter Round 1 pledges. Please make sure to check out the current pledge levels as this IS NOT what is currently being offered for pledging. You can click on the image for a larger version if you are having problems reading it.
If you wish to find out more about the different pledge levels please see below for a description of each.
Membership Packages (Silver/Gold/Platinum)
We are what is called in the industry a Free to Play (F2P) title. We distribute the game for free and you can play it at no continuing cost. Obviously, the game will not last very long if no one pays any money so we sell memberships with additional perks. Our planned initial offerings for the memberships include additional character, inventory, bank, shared bank, mission, housing, and auction slots. There are 3 membership levels available and the higher end memberships offer more slots. Additionally, Silver membership will offer access to be part of the City Council and be part of Nation Leadership, Gold Membership will open up being a City Mayor, and Platinum Membership will allow you to create a Nation. Memberships are offered at a discount through this program and will be available for future purchase upon release and each membership includes the previous ones. Memberships are one time purchases and will never expire. Memberships will be given at release and are non refundable.
Part of being F2P is that we have what is also called a cash shop where players can purchase in game items. We do not sell what are considered Pay 2 Win (P2W) items that require players to spend money in hopes to compete in the game; instead, we sell cosmetic items that players can use in game along with a small variety of time saving options such as what is commonly referred to as an experience potion. Store Credit can also be used to purchase a membership if you don't have all of the levels. We understand the value of both paying and non paying customers and want to provide extract incentives to paying customers without non paying customers feeling like they are playing a demo. Store Credit will be given at release and is non refundable.
We will reserve a name of your choice that will be available for your use. If you are part of Alpha/Beta you will be able to use it or it will be ready for you once the game is released.
These are special tokens that can be used to get special in game items as a thank you for supporting us. Instead of giving specific ones at each level we will offer you tokens and you will have a choice of different options with some costing more than 1 token. These items will be cosmetic in nature only and will not give you any additional functionality or power over other players. Examples of what you can expect are: equipable shell items such as armor, weapons, and clothing, a special edition vehicle, and trinkets and even special buildings for your housing and nation. These are similiar to Kickstarter tokens and Kickstarter backers will have access to the items offered via Repop Tokens as well, but will have a few exclusive offerings not available with Repop Tokens.
Beta testing is the process before release where the game is nearly complete and players are allowed to play to test out the game. They help with final bug reporting and to stress test the servers. We are offering 2 levels of Beta testing as part of the pledges.
- Preferred access will give you guaranteed access to the 2nd round of Beta testing to happen shortly after the 1st period. Some preferred accounts will randomly get access to the 1st as well depending on how many there are.
- Guaranteed access will give you guaranteed access to the the 1st round of Beta testing to happen after Alpha testing ends. Some guaranteed accounts will randomly get access to Alpha testing during phase 2 if they are not part of phase 1.
- Beta Preview will get you in a few days in early before Beta to chat with the developers about the game and to get a preview as well.
- Beta Preview + is the same as Beta Preview, but you will be part of a promotional video from the event.
Once Beta is over and the servers are ready to be opened you will get a head start on everyone else. The listed is the minimum you will be given and there might be more based on the number of players. If there is any kind of queue or limit on active accounts upon release any head start member will skip this aspect and be included in the initial count. There will be no data wipe during this process so whatever you have you get to keep once the general public is allowed on the server.
Founder or Voyage plaque
The Founder Plaque and Voyage Plaque are large monuments that will be displayed in both of the major cities in the game for either the OWON and FPR faction. We will etch an approved name into one of the monuments for everyone to see in game. We will also do a "photo-op" with everyone in game if there is interest once in Beta for everyone to keep as a momento if they wish. This plaque is awarded to all other tiers above it as well.
There are additional levels that will get you a higher rank on the plaque so you will be listed with less people. A small plaque will be given that can be used in your private housing to show off as well at higher tiers.
We will work with you on the appearance and name of an NPC that will be used in the game and players will interact with on at different levels. In higher tiers you will specify Personality, Profession and Mood for your NPC that allows the NPC to be part of more missions tailored to your liking. This could include different traits that can be viewed as positive or negative depending on how you look at it. We reserve the right to deny any suggestions here and hope of course we do not have to do that. Part of this perk is that we will perform this on the development server so you will get to watch as we do it in realtime and the next update your NPC will be live in the testing environment. Development server access is for the period of time only to create the NPC unless you have previous access for some other reason.
Custom Logo for Armor or Clothing
We will create a custom armor shell based on one of the existing shells in the game with your design pattern of choice on the piece of armor or clothing (such as a logo or emblem). You will also get a recipe to create these and hand them out to others.
his is a truly custom weapon that will be a different look from the others in the game and unique in that sense. Since we use what we call shells for items the weapon will not have any advantage over others besides people drooling over it while you stand there. We will try to work with you on tweaking it some, but please understand we will present some ideas and go with some minor modifications from there. If you are capable of drawing or designing the weapon we will try to work from that as well to the best of our ability. Part of this perk is that we will perform this on the development server so you will get to watch as we do it in realtime and the next update your weapon will be live in the testing environment. Development server access is for the period of time only to create the weapon unless you have previous access for some other reason. You will also get a recipe to create these and hand them out to others.
Along with the giant plaque, each city will have 12 statue monuments to some of the great leaders of the past. We will work with you on becoming one of those statues and introducing some lore into the game about that individual. We do reserve some rights on how far we can go with the lore and will try to work with you the best we can. Part of this perk is that we will perform this on the development server so you will get to watch as we do it in realtime and the next update your statue will be live in the testing environment. Development server access is for the period of time only to create the statue unless you have previous access for some other reason.
Generated Mission Template
Wow thanks for supporting us, first off. You will get to work with the team first hand to create a generated mission template that will be used in game. We will work with you on a complex generated mission up to 20 steps. This will be much more complicated than a simple kill 10 of x mission and hopefully other players will appreciate the work everyone put into this.
Meet and Greet
Choose either GDC or PAX in 2013 and we will meet up with you and do dinner with you and up to 4 guests. If we can arrange to do something during the conference we will try to make that happen as well, as you helped us out quite a bit. We are open to suggestions here if you are serious about this tier or anything higher so please contact us with your ideas and we will be more than happy to listen.
