Crowdfunding games news site Cliqist has compiled a roundup of what they know so far on The Bard's Tale IV. Check it out of you'd like a refresher course!

Here's what we know about The Bards Tale IV itself. It is a direct sequel to the last game in the trilogy, taking off from what transpired before. The town of Skara Brae is encased in magical ice and time has proven itself to not be an ally as a new town has been built upon its frozen carcass. The eponymous Bard returns with a group of adventurers to take on the challenges that await and traverse the, for lack of a better term, underground city. And your actions and quests undertaken will affect how the townsfolk treat you. In a word, it's dungeon crawling at its finest. For more information on the basic story, read our coverage from the launch day.

Along with your usual rewards, such as a copy of the game (both digital and physical), you can choose from various tiers that just sweeten the deal. In addition to what you get at each pledge level, if you backedThe Bards Tale IV at least $20 during the first two days you'll get the option to pick from a free copy of Wasteland 2, The Witcher, or The Witcher 2. Obviously, this promotion has long since ran its course but if you're an early bird backer you should keep this in mind. Also, as of Update 5 anyone who backs at least $20 will get free copies of the original trilogy, both emulated as well as updates from Olde Sküül.
