In an odd twist....

I got an email from Redhook today saying that I will be getting a free key for Color of Madness.

I'll just post the "why" here:

Quote
We have, after lengthy consideration, decided to make The Musketeer DLC available free to all owners of Darkest Dungeon, effective on release of The Color of Madness DLC on June 19th (on Steam).

As you know, The Musketeer has been an Adventurer-Tier Kickstarter Exclusive. Since her release, we’ve honored that exclusivity and have publicly maintained the position that we had no plans to release the class to non-backers, regardless of how much money people were willing to pay!

The reality is, counterfeit mods of the class already exist, and it’s impossible to effectively prevent those from being distributed. Ultimately, as we move forward with our follow-up title, we feel that releasing this class to the larger community will add richness to the game, increasing value to all who own it.

We hope that you’ve enjoyed the lengthy period of exclusivity, and that you understand our desire to leave the game in as good a shape as we can. We’re pleased to offer you a free code for the “The Color of Madness” DLC in order to preserve the value of your pledge. Your game code for The Color of Madness will be sent out via BACKERKIT, so check your email or log in to your account to redeem. (It may take a day or so to distribute)

So there you go. Because people were already modding in what is essentially just a reskin of the Arbalest, I don't have to pay for the DLC. Not sure many studios out there would willingly take a financial hit like that over a backer exclusive of low value....but they got integrity. As of this time I don't have the key in my backer kit but it will probably show up sometime soon.

Much obliged, Red Hook! To be honest I didn't even remember the Musketeer was a backer exclusive and wouldn't have cared if you'd given it out for free to the rest of players, but I will happily accept the key.

It seems a little ironic that studio that makes a game like this can be as nice as that, but still. I’m not exactly going to assume malice when they’d have naught to gain from it.

Anyway, I own this game. It’s been fun playing it.

I dunno what else to say...

Can’t check my own email since I’m in China (whee, amirite?), so I can’t see the non-backer version of this message.

Haven't had time to play. Generally when a DLC for DD comes out I flush my current game and start over. Debating if I will go that route again or not.

Not impressed with the DLC as far as the new level.

Digging the changes to class abilities, but I had mods that did exactly that. Still, it'll be interesting to get a new sense of the game balance.

Removing party restrictions was pretty idiotic, as it added some flavor and tightened up party comps, but to be honest, I had a mod that did this anyway :P

Musketeer is a beta Arbalest. Not really impressed, but I enjoy free things. :D

“Beta Arbalest”?

I thought the Musketeer was just a copy of the Arbalest - the exact same in nearly every aspect but appearance.

Luckily, there are mods to give the Musketeer unique abilities and stats so she's not a palette swap.

I think he was just making a joke and showing some solidarity to the Arbalest.

No, I was being a clueless newbie and not actually realizing that they are the same mechanical class with a reskin. Sorry folks.

I'm so used to playing with the class overhaul mods that I forgot what the base Arba plays like XD

Welp, decided to splurge and spent about $15 on getting all 3 DLCs - The Color of Madness, The Crimson Court, and The Shieldbreaker.

Hopefully they won't enrage me more than the base game can :P

Oh we are going to have fun, you and I.
Take your dice and frolic in the uncertainty! Just know that one day you may find you get snake eyes. This, too, is part of the fun.
