blinky - i expect the answer is shipping cost, but have you consider getting lever room? - lots of bang for the buck - the almost impossible to get levers and 4 curved walls, plus LED corners

here is the slippery slope - if you get lever room, you may as well get D2... i mean at that point AA is almost free ;)

Thoughts?
"Curved Daises (Red) - Dungeon Gray" is somewhat of an oxymoron.

Other than that, everything looks perfect!

If it's of use, my pledge is taking shape.
NOTE: shipping is to NZ, and it is much cheaper this time thanks.
This is not a huge order, but it grabs a selection that I think will add value to my KS1.

Pledge Total: $545

The shipping destination will be within New Zealand.
Main Pledge

1 X Dungeon Level I (includes Encounter Area 1) - Dungeon Gray ($105)

Encounter Areas and Add-ons

1 X Double Doors - Expertly Hand Painted ($28) - MUST HAVE
1 X Straight Daises - Dungeon Gray ($42)
1 X Large Curved Daises (Red) - Dungeon Gray ($25)
1 X Large Curved Daises (Marble Ltd Ed) - Expertly Hand Painted ($32)
1 X Curved Daises (Red) - Dungeon Gray ($21)
1 X Curved Daises (Marble Ltd Ed) - Expertly Hand Painted ($29)
1 X Fanatic's Trove - Expertly Hand Painted ($163) - MUST HAVE
2 X Large Curved Walls - Dungeon Gray ($40)
2 X Large Curved Walls - Expertly Hand Painted ($60)

To be added:
Troves, ledges, cages & nook ossuaries.

Rationale:
All the dungeon gray is to be painted to match and expand my chamber of sorrows.
The rest is just bling & flavour for my KS1.
No burrows, I'm happy with KS2
I have KS4 bridges and elevations (cubes etc)

Thoughts?

They released the first Fanatic's Trove that's basically a small package of utility pieces heavy on magnetic parts and LED with a bunch of stretch goals. Probably the first of a few Troves. $99 unpainted, $144 painted.

I'd still like to see a "Returning Backer" or DF Enthusiast" pledge level for those of us with significant amounts of KS1-4 who want to get a reasonable base amount of the new pillar pieces, plus all (most?) of the new sculpts. I would like to be able to build a few rooms in the new style, but don't need hundreds of new walls, floors, etc. that would come in a DV or DoD pledge. Ideally the price would be around $1,500 (or lower). This would allow backers at this level to supplement with add-ons specific to their needs (more dias pieces or more passages, etc.).

I understand that the team is looking into this option and am fine with waiting until near the end of the campaign, although hopefully they leave us at least 3-4 days to sort through it all.
I very much would like this as well, and the 1500 - 2000 price zone is just right.

New add-ons won't get stretch goals, so I wouldn't hold out hope for that. DF has been pretty consistent about that in past kickstarters. The convenience of the specialty all-in and mega style pledges sacrifice the stretch goals when you veer off from the standard pledges that are set up at the beginning of the campaign.

I'd be interested in an add on that is 1 or 2 of every sculpt, and that gets stretch goals (1 or 2 of each unique sculpt) as they appear. Those that just want a flavor of KS5 could get the add on level and grab it. Those who want a larger pledge could pick it up as an add on to get the unique pieces they want as extras to sample, while spending a majority of their pledge dollars on the encounters or other add ons they are most likely to use.

I'd suggest you lock in for your max (1k or 2k) and wait until we get a few days out from the finish line before stressing over your pledge. Then you can figure out the core of what you want and adjust as appropriate. You might be able to get by with just add-ons, or some of the encounters plus add-ons depending on your desired pieces.

Thanks kitenerd. As the days pass and more add-ons are revealed, I think the logic of this KS is finally starting to sink in. No idea when I'll finally be able to sit down and map/math out a real pledge, so I sit at DV for now as a placeholder.

The burrows are mind blowing! To me they are like the Sewers, Mountains, and Streets of the previous campaigns. They provide a specialized sub-set of terrain that enhances our core sets. I love it!

You still get the SG for each encounter

To add KS 5 flavor try some combo of this:

Lever Room or Dais of the Dead - lots of walls chose the flavor that works for you (and use add ons to make the difference)

Eldritch Pools or Deadly Corners - lots of corners in each of these (deadly corners has 5 doors!!!) and fun flavor in both (eldritch has 4 classic led corner walls)

Those two get you a couple of rooms worth of awesome for 3-400 bucks
