Pledge Rewards

From the spark of inspiration to the kindled flame of a concept to the forge of a playable game, Pantheon has had a remarkable journey. As a largely crowdfunded game, we have relied on our passionate playerbase to sustain our development through a series of pledges with varying rewards. Many of the rewards available to our earliest adopters were removed and replaced with new items and perks as the game and the team evolved. Having reached a point in development that we are able to clearly define our timeline, we knew it was time to also bring clarity to the scope of our rewards. Below you will find an updated description of most of those items.

For those backers who have reserved the rewards listed below, we invite you to join us on our official forums in the coming days as we will be creating a new thread to get feedback and provide further answers as questions arise. We thank each and every one of you for your continued support of Pantheon.

Early Name Reservation

Description: At some point prior to the release of Pantheon, Visionary Realms will open up a name reservation process. Once the announcement that the name reservation system is active is made, each pledge may reserve one character name as unique to his or her account on a first-come/first-served basis.

Founder's Guild

Description: Access to an exclusive area in the game called the Founder’s Conclave. The Founder’s Conclave serves as a meeting place for its members and can be found in several in-game cities. Members can seek out allies, regale each other with tales of adventures, seek out lost tales or forgotten legends from those around them, re-equip before a new adventure, or work on their various crafts and skills.

Nameplate Color

Description: Different player nameplate color frame.

Design a Quest Line or Boss

Description: Each pledge may submit a written idea for a quest line or non-raid boss NPC. These will not be class defining quests nor raid level bosses, but instead would be appropriate for most classes and players to receive and attempt. All submissions will be reviewed by the Design team; if there are any concerns, the submission will be sent back to the pledge for revision to comply with the Design team’s objectives. The Design team has the right to modify the submission as needed to fit gameplay. Submission guidelines will be sent out prior to the selection process for this reward.

Design an Item

Description: Each pledge may submit a written design for an item. The choices are a weapon, a piece of armor, a food or drink item, a bag or backpack, a wearable item (e.g. ring, amulet, earring), a discoverable item or quest item. The written design should include level range, color, and a snippet of flavor text. All submissions are subject to approval by the Design team. We will work with you to come up with something that works for you and for the game; submissions may be sent back to the pledge for revision per Design team’s suggestions. A name for the item can also be submitted but will not necessarily be used. The Design team has the right to modify the submission as needed to fit gameplay. Submission guidelines will be sent out prior to the selection process for this reward.

POLICY AND AGREEMENT

CONCERNING IDEAS SUBMITTED BY INDIVIDUALS RELATED TO A PLEDGE

POLICY

As part of your pledge you may be entitled to submit ideas and/or content to us on certain design aspects of the game. We are constantly working on the game and receive ideas and content from multiple sources and have found that these may not be new and may be either concepts that are already in the public domain or are the same or similar to ideas or content developed by our own staff. For these reasons, and to avoid any disagreements, our willingness to consider ideas and content from people other than our employees is subject to the following policy.

Our policy is founded in our desire to preserve our rights (A) in the previous and current ideas and developments of our own staff, (B) to use anything in the public domain, and (C) to build the best game out there without fear of claims of intellectual property infringement from people we have allowed to provide us with input on the game. We also wish to avoid uncertainty or disagreements as to what is disclosed to us.

This policy is a binding obligation on you and if you do not want to provide us with ideas under this policy, you are not required to do so. However, if you do choose to provide us with ideas, they will be subject to this policy.


Our policy requires that we accept submissions of ideas only subject to these terms. Please understand that it is necessary for us and for your protection to retain a record of your disclosure for our files.

  1. All submissions are subject to Visionary Realms Terms and Conditions.
        a. (https://www.pantheonmmo.com/main/terms_of_service/)
  2. In the absence of a separately executed non-disclosure agreement, the disclosure must be understood to be purely voluntary and no confidential relationship is to be established by such disclosure or implied from our consideration of the submitted material, and the material is not to be considered submitted "in confidence". Confidential relationships have been held to create obligations that are beyond those that the company is willing to assume.
  3. No obligation of any kind is assumed by, nor may be implied against Visionary Realms, requiring us to use your idea or content. Visionary Realms has no obligation to compensate you for any idea or content you may provide us, unless we have entered into a separate written agreement with you.
  4. By participating in content creation based on Visionary Realms games, you grant our company the right, at no charge or royalty, to perpetual, non-exclusive, irrevocable and transferable license to copy, use, publicly perform, modify, reproduce, distribute and otherwise exploit any idea or content you may provide us, including your likeness, name, voice and performance, in whole or in part, in any and all media, in connection with publicity, marketing and promotion of Visionary Realms products and services. You hereby waive any moral rights you may have in any content or idea you provide to us.
  5. You further agree that Visionary Realms shall remain the exclusive owner of all game content and intellectual property rights in its game(s), including all content that may have been created by yourself.
