    <blockquote><b>Posted by Obsidian Entertainment</b>

    With only seven days left on the Project Eternity Kickstarter, we want to start the last week off with some pretty incredible things to announce. You might not know that <b>Brian Fargo</b> is the guy who gave many of us our start in the games industry at Interplay – myself (Feargus), Josh Sawyer, Chris Avellone, Scott Everts, Brian Menze, Chris Jones, Chris Parker, Darren Monahan – and the list keeps on going from there. He also gave the guys who started a little company called Silicon & Synapse their first few projects – pretty crazy to think that little company is now Blizzard Entertainment.

    Personally, we are incredibly thankful to him and for the second wave of Kickstarter attention he brought with <a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2">Wasteland 2</a>. But, Brian hasn’t stopped being the great guy that he is, and so, he’s helping us out by letting us <b>add <a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2">Wasteland 2</a> as a reward at our higher tiers</b>. So, what tiers will that be? A lot of you have asked for a digital tier after $110, so we are adding a <b>$165 Digital Only Tier</b>. That means Wasteland 2 will get added to this new $165 tier and all the tiers above.

    What we are also doing is <b>adding the first expansion pack for the game to the $165 Tier (and above)</b>. The expansion will come out approximately six months after Project Eternity is released. That’s right, it’s not DLC, but a real honest to God RPG expansion pack. We don’t have the details on the Expansion yet, but you can bet it will be what you’d expect from an Infinity Engine game expansion.

    With all that Brian has done for us in the past and his incredibly generous offer, we also want to kick something in. To do that we are now supporting the Brian's <a href="http://kickingitforward.org/">Kicking It Forward initiative</a>. The Kickstarter community is pretty amazing and we want to help whomever we can be as successful as we have been.

    For those of you that missed the announcement over the weekend, we will be <b>adding another level to the Mega Dungeon if we hit 20,000 Likes</b> on the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/obsidian">Obsidian's Facebook page</a>. We are getting close to halfway there!

    That’s a lot for today, and we have so much more coming up tomorrow. Maybe some new stretch goals, maybe some new add-ons, or heck maybe all of that! Stay tuned all of this week as we ramp up to the <a href="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/obsidian/project-eternity">Project Eternity Kickstarter</a> finish next Tuesday, October 16th with an all-day live video stream from Obsidian. We are trying to get Tim to do the cooking!

    Oh, and we also owe everyone an update that goes through everything you get at each of the tiers listed out with a bit more detail than we can squeeze in on the front page of our Kickstarter site. We will get that update out in the next few days, but to tide everyone over – we’ve attached the full concept for Aloth below. <a href="http://media.obsidian.net/eternity/media/updates/0017/aloth-lrg.jpg">(Larger version)</a>

    Take Aloth, remove some letters, add some other ones, mixed them all up. What do you get?

    Kreia, that's what. Coincidence? You decide!

    Indeed, looks a loth like Kreia.

    On the plus side, we also have a copy of Wasteland 2 for the raffle.

    I was looking at Wasteland 2 a while ago. Unfortunately, additional funding was closed at that time. If no one else wants it, I'd be happy getting that copy.

    We can throw a dice and fight over it.

    Wasteland 2 can still be aquired via backing the project, just outside of Kickstarter. Check out their store for details.

    Missed the W2 Kickstarter myself as well. That digital download is a nice reward, even though there are other more unique and harder to get prizes waiting for the raffle.

    Even if I believe that a dice might be a little bit too small to serve as a battleground, I certainly wouldn't mind some fighting, just for the hell of it.

    You'll have your share of fighting when you get home, old boy. You can count on that :)
