What you can expect from the Aberration!
Lots of new faces around here, keep it up you are doing great!!!
We would like to say that we really appreciate your amazing support and that we are halfway through the second weekly challenge draft, that will happen next Tuesday. Just as a reminder, we use a custom script that scrapes all the comments from the page. Then, thanks to a weighted algorithm, this script tells us which one of you have been the most supportive this week based on a number of factors that is not just the number of comments. The eligible backers are those who have posted supportive comments. That being said, the game is still open!
Since many of you have asked about this in the comment section and in the private messages as well, it is time for us to share some juicy information on how the Aberration Miniature works in Icaion!
Let's start by saying that the Aberration is a special enemy unit that spawns after a considerable amount of Parasites gathers in one place. It is the evolution of a basic Parasite. It is hostile towards inferior Parasites, and embodies a direct threat to the Seekers as well. It is a real menace in lots of aspects since, when it steps in, here is what you are not allowed to do:
you cannot deploy Machines in its region
you cannot build a Wonder in its region
you cannot extract Qoam in its region
you cannot add Parasites to its region, harming players that follow a "parasite-hunting" strategy
When a Seeker manages to defeat the Aberration the miniature is removed from the game (for now) and points are scored by the Seeker.
Another SSG in our hands!!!
Now onBGG we have more than 500 fans, you all are marvelous! Now you will get Travis Anderson's artworks in high resolution for your computer desktop, are you happy? Soon we will share those wallpapers for you to download.

Hello old and new backers!
Thanks to your amazing contribution we managed to get to the table 4 new Curio Cards: we are properly building that deck, aren't we? Now the total number of Curio Cards so far is 42, that is going to add a lot of replayability and a varied gameplay!
A great mention of Mysthea: The Fall!
Most of you know Rahdo and probably you watched his rundowns of Icaion and The Fall. Today he also published his "May Round Up" in which he gives an amazing overview of Mysthea: The Fall. We believe that he really nailed everything that makes The Fall unique, so go check it out if you want to listen to what he has to say! You can find his new video here (segment starts at 44:56).

The moment has come: the first Winner!
First we want to emphasize that many of you have been proving their commitment and enthusiasm ever since Icaion campaign started and we would like to thank each and everyone of you for this!!
We are literally blown away by the comment section! Tons of interesting speculations, useful feedbacks and ideas from our great backers! Once again, even if we have not replied to every single comment, we surely have read them all!
Nonetheless, unfortunately we can choose only one winner per week. We are just relieved that we can rely on an algorithm based on comments and other factors to see who the most active backer is, though. It would have been too hard for us to pick only one person among all our active supporters!
Without further ado, let's get right in there, shall we?
Our most active backer in the first week is:
Congratulations, Kyle, you sure deserve this!!! 👏
Now you will be depicted by our talented leading artist Travis Anderson with a pet or a weapon, and we will include this artwork in the Event Board!
We will be sharing with you the work in progress of the artwork as soon as we receive the photo from Kyle and forward it to Travis so he can work on it!
For all the others: don't give up guys! You still have 2 other weeks to show your enthusiasm to Icaion and the campaign ;)
Social Stretch Goal to unlock: Don't forget to share!
Remember that you have the power to unlock a pretty cool Social Stretch Goal: when we reach 500 Shares of the Facebook post below, we will add the alternative bust of the Criminal miniature to every box, for free!
Thanks to your marvelous support this Stretch Goal was unlocked: now the Dark Bell has finally rung in Icaion!! :) Now we have 3 Wonder miniatures and cards, how cool is that??
Next, we have 4 more Curio cards, come on fellas!!
See you real soon,
A new incredible Social Stretch Goal to Unlock!

New SSG: We need your help to make it happen!
Good afternoon, folks!
The Criminal is the only Seeker that has two different character designs in the artwork, she can be either with her armor or not. This has inspired many of our backers about this character and now we are ready to unveil a greatsurprise!
A modular miniature
We have decided to gift you an amazing new miniature: an alternative bust for the Criminal Miniature!
That's right, you will be able to switch the criminal miniature in two different poses: with or without armor. Yet that's not all, it will not be just a cosmetic alternative, as it will also bring awesome rules into the game.
The goal to reach to unlock this free mini!
Instead of making this new mini a normal Stretch Goal, we decided to make it a Social one. This means that ifTHIS POSTreaches 500 Shares, we will add the alternative bust to every box, for free!
Great new rules with the new mini!
In Icaion, the armor is a valuable technological asset for the Criminal. Investigating the Colossus and interacting with the Apparatus is going to be a breeze inside that suit. Just... try not to get hit or you will lose the armor. To put it back you need to waste precious time and... well... all Seekers know that time is a precious resource in the harsh regions.
In Mysthea: The Fall, the armor is useful again to protect the Seeker from Enemy attacks, while removing it will provide an agility bonus to the Criminal. What will you choose between Dexterity and Toughness?
Oh and be ready, tomorrow we have a big day ahead of us: we will announce the first weekly reward, and the poll's winner and speaking of which, have you had the chance to take it? If you haven't you still can vote the look of the game board here!
