    Yes we have received some pretty cool stuff...
    But I sure would love to see all of the original stretch goals become a reality, and not just in some lesser version that allows the box to be checked. Make them righteous and something the players are blown away about.

    So the original stretch goals from the stretch goal store were represented in the post episode 1 plans. I believe the intent is to get them in one way or another. Funding them via the store progress bar completion would probably result in hiring someone for that task with probably a contingency on future tasks. Barring that, as tasks that are nearby one of those stretch goals get worked then put in framework to make finishing those goals easier.

    That would be awesome.
    I have tried to keep the faith in the games developers, I believe they are good people trying to get through a difficult period in the development of this game.
    Having things like the custom avatar head delivered as promised would go a long way towards getting me tp spend money again. I still have not seen anything that they said would be a substitute for canceling the head in any of my qualified accounts. Maybe I need to search the forums and see what the skinny is currently on those reward items.

    The substitute was to have been "Lord Forged Weapons." Unique weapons crafted by Darkstarr and Lord British.

    LOL, that could work. Lots of health, does no damage or debuffs but has super high aggro.

    Counter stopped counting now that dark leather has been reached fairly certain that number is still being tracked in the background though.

    Additional idea, Wax Cylinder of Darkstarr saying "Dark Winter!"

    Great job everyone. Perhaps the fur and leather could have a jacket since we only have cloaks. It would be nice to have jacket back pieces too especially in fur and leather ;)

    To go with our new jeweled dress ;)

    Oh and for ideas for next stretch goals

    2 handed axe would be nice. :)

    edited to 'have a jacket' instead of 'be a jacket'

    • ivy covered fence with the ivy changed to snow
    • a kobold cooling device
    • shopkeeper santa style
    • Already got bow/sword/staff/wand so maybe another weapon?. A club that looks made out of ice?

    I think anything over $105000 should go towards the stretch goal for episode 2 ridable mounts

    My thoughts on a new stretch goal are.....
    • In recognition of the extraordinarily high goals reached it should be something equally extraordinary!
    I would LOVE to have the Devs bring forward a UI change, that is already on the 2019 radar (I believe)
    & give us 2 or 3 extra non-combat utility bars, to accommodate all of our crafting gyphs & emotes. :cool:

    If a higher goal is reached, another UI improvement could be offered. *hint* = Quest Journal revamp :p

    This way they aren't creating something new, but bringing forward development of proposed future goals.

    I have only been playing a month or so & have bought things from the store, which I am sure have helped contribute to the total donated.

    Some of the rewards, in all honesty, seem pretty "Meh".
    I hope something more practical gets added for the next reward (there are so many small things I still want to buy to deco my new row house)

    I like the idea mentioned above about an extra utility bar... I love questing, but I also love meeting people & have collected some great emotes.
    But trying to use emotes from the list, takes too long & stops the conversation being natural.

    The bottom hotbar I have is too small!
    I would love an extra hotbar to put some of the emotes I have collected on, so I can use them when I talk to other players in general conversation.

    People seem to not fully understand what they're asking for, or the significance of the funds collected through the store.

    That money is Portalarium's Operating Capital... It pays the (meager, I'm sure, even by Gaming industry standards) salaries of the (very small) development team. It keeps the lights on and the HVAC working in the office. It keeps the servers online. And Pays for the Development Already Planned and detailed in the Quarterly Plan.

    Asking for Stretch Goal Money to be spent on things that require Real Development Time, or accelerating the development of your pet feature in the game is inappropriate.
    Fluff deco items that (for the most part) don't require people to own property... Weapon or Armor skins... Emotes, that kind of thing is appropriate for Livestream Stretch Goals.

    Request for changes to the way the game functions should be posted in the Wishlist Requests Sub-Forum.
