what's with the Cairns?

Recommended Posts

I must admit, I don't pay attention very well, my mind is always wandering and I must have missed the explanation or the announcement of these Cairns.

Some of them have some interesting comments therein, but the majority it seems are incomplete.  Were these part of some in game recognition for financial contribution, cause if so, can the community still get in on that now?  So many I have clicked on say the story remains to be told.

and then there is the question of placement... numbers 142 and 145.  Never seen 'em this close together.  Happy accident?screen_bea72e67-9c13-43cd-8780-3ad3ec935345_hi.thumb.png.b10dbc715433fa62af79deb2f364afbb.png

I think they (the Cairns) were a way of showing appreciation to all those who backed The along Dark. I think you can no longer back the game, I believe the Kickstarter has long been over.

That's correct. These are contributions from the crowdfunding backers. For some tiers it was a possibility to add these things. I like them a lot. :D

thanks for the heads up.  kinda figured that was the jist of things.  I always enjoy finding one that has a message, but so many that i do find seem to be incomplete.  @Blinkin. since you're a TLD Backer, if you don't mind me asking you, why are so many of the cairns i find, without a story?

Good question. I'm not one of the backers who got to add a cairn so I'm not fully informed (I think).
But from what I understand not all backers with this tier have written their contribution yet. I'm a bit afraid that some of them never will as this eye candy piece of the game added later than some expected (makes sense to me as it's purely eye candy). I think some people even forgot about it.

But this might be something a backer can confirm who was informed about what you have to do to write these. Or Hinterland themselves. :)

@Blinkin, I am sorry you missed out.  I certainly hope they, meaning Hinterland, don't forget about getting those backer's sentiments immortalized in the game.  Since there is still so much updating going, I would think there is still time to complete that aspect of the game.  I would venture to guess that the community could come up with some pretty witty prose if given the opportunity in the event a Backer wanted to remain anonymous.  Make a good contest if you ask me.
