    Project Update #8: Update #8 - New Digital Tier, Novella by

    <blockquote><b>Posted by Obsidian Entertainment</b>
    <br>
    <br>We are still going strong over here on Kickstarter and we wanted to thank everyone that has been here since the beginning as well as those of you who have come on recently to back us with your pledge. With such great support, we want to thank everyone with a new addition to the $50 and later tiers, a new $110 digital only tier, and a big change to our $2.2M stretch goal.
    <br>
    <br>Oh, and what are we doing this week as to updates you might ask? Josh Sawyer, Tim Cain and Chris Avellone will be posting updates and videos all this week starting on Sep 26 with Josh, Sep 27 with Mr. Avellone and a great one from Tim over the weekend.
    <br>
    <br><b>French, German, and Spanish Translations added at $2.2M</b>
    <br>
    <br>We are glad to announce that we will add text translations for French, German, and Spanish when we reach this goal. As we hit more of our stretch goals, we hope to be able to add even more languages as well!

    <br><b>Novella by Chris Avellone added for $50 and Up!</b>
    <br>
    <br>Chris Avellone has been so thankful for everyone's support that he himself has pledged to write a novella in the world of Project Eternity. We are adding that to everyone who pledges $50 and up.
    <br>
    <br><b>New $110 Digital Only Tier</b>
    <br>
    <br>Thanks to popular demand, we are adding a new digital tier at $110 that has early beta access to the game, thanks in the credits, a postcard thanking you for your pledge (sent physically) along with all the other digital benefits of the $140 Tier. Since we added the new novella written by Chris Avellone at the $50 reward tier - that is in there as well!
    <br>
    <br>Oh and we have a little piece of artwork to share as well. The following is one of our traditional race and class combinations - the Human Fighter - but he's not just any Human Fighter. He has an integral role in the story that we will be hinting at soon. Don't worry, we will also be sharing more and more of the non-traditional options in the days and weeks to come.

    Hoped that the "something big" that will come with reaching the $2.2M stretch goal would be something different/better for the game than the translation pack. Still, like the player house, everything that can attract more people and more funds is good for the kickstarter.

    Player housing is always something I appreciate. Having a base to return to after your adventures seems appealing to me.

    A warm customizable house to return to can indeed be a nice touch, especially when it comes with as much new content and interactivity as Obsidian says it will.

    I just usually prefer when the story is told with a "no time to waste, we have to move forward" attitude, forcing you to sleep in smelly inns or directly under the stars. Having any sort of home is relaxing, but often gives so much comfort that the suspense suffers.

    I liked the castle in NWN2 myself, if your living quarters serves as a well-executed plot point and not just as a storeroom for mithril bikinis and random wives, I'm all game.

    They should work slavery into the game so you can sell your random wives and buy newer better ones.
