KULT:Divinity Lost – PDFs are here, print is in progress!

Posted by Helmgast AB (Creator)

Kultists,

We are happy to announce that (almost) all print files are complete and with our printers. Below is a more detailed status update, item by item. Dates are for expected delivery to our fulfillment center in England. From receiving the goods, our fulfillment center (GamesQuest) will need another 2-3 weeks to process all orders and then freight companies will take their time (anything from 1-2 weeks within EU, up to 4 weeks for some countries like Brazil and Russia).

In short, we are expecting everything to start shipping to you by end of August, with delivery ongoing during August up to and including October.

NOTE: Please make sure YOUR ADDRESS IS CORRECT in Pledge Manager ASAP. You can still update your address. From 30 July, you will not be able to update your address in Pledge Manager as we need to lock it for shipping. Please PM us here at Kickstarter in case of any changes after 30 July. We will then handle this manually.

PDFs!

Following PDFs will be released to backers who have LOCKED AND COMPLETED their orders in Pledge Manager (see previous updates for information on how to manage this, if you have not done this by now).

The distribution of PDFs may take some time, so please bear with us until Wednesday 25 July prior to reporting any delivery issues.

  • Core Rule Book PDF: A new PDF will be distributed, as we noted some issues with the previous version (minor, but as we anyway have updated it, we might as well share it)
  • Taroticum & Other Tales PDF: Will be distributed to all backers who have ordered the Core Rule Book.
  • Player's Guide PDF: Will be distributed to those who have ordered this item.
  • Black Madonna PDF: Will be distributed to those who have ordered this item.
  • Postcards PDF: Will be distributed to all backers who have ordered the Core Rule Book.
  • Reference Deck PDF: Will be distributed to those who have ordered this item.

Narrator's Screen PDF and Tarot Deck PDF will not be released until later this summer, as we need to re-work the layout of the screen to be fit for PDF/screen view and the rules for the Tarot Deck needs to be published at kultdivinitylost.com (which is to be updated later this summer). Once done, these items will also be released as PDFs. 

Production/print details

  • Core Rule Book: With printer. Estimated delivery to fulfilment center: 20-24 August. (Backers on Archon, Death Angel, Demiurge and Astaroth levels will have custom-made covers which will take some longer time to produce. We will reach out to you separately)
  • Black Madonna: With printer. Estimated delivery to fulfilment center: 20-24 August 
  • Taroticum and Other Tales: With printer. Estimated delivery to fulfilment center: 20-24 August
  • Tarot Deck: With printer. Expected delivery to fulfilment center: 6-10 August
  • Reference Deck (previously known as "Deck of Cards"): With printer. Expected delivery to fulfilment center: 6-10 August
  • Archetype Bundle: Print to start first week of August. Expected delivery to fulfilment center 20-24 August
  • Narrator's Screen: Printing to start end of July. Expected delivery to fulfilment center 20-24 August
  • Bible Edition of the Core Rule Book: Will be printed in September and shipped separately, to not delay shipment of other items
  • Soundtrack: Music is ready, but some final finetuning needs to be made. The soundtrack will be released in September/October
  • Posters, Dice, Postcards, Bags and Pins: Already in storage

Information to Modiphius customers who have pre-ordered the Original Kickstarter Editions

NOTE: This information is only for those who have already pre-ordered items from Modiphius. The Original Kickstarter Editions are not available for sale anymore, see below information to non-backers.

Those who have pre-ordered the Original Kickstarter Editions of Kult: Divinity Lost from Modiphius, will have received an email from Modiphius requesting you to pick what edition of the Core Rule Book you want.

Modiphius will distribute PDFs to pre-order customers at the same time as Helmgast distributes PDFs to Kickstarter backers (i.e. from now and coming week). Modiphius will receive books to deliver to those who have pre-ordered the Original Kickstarter Editions early September.

Information to non-backers/potential purchasers of Kult: Divinity Lost

Kult: Divinity Lost's retail edition, “KULT: Divinity Lost - 4th Edition” is targeted to be released globally in November 2018. We will open for pre-orders in the beginning of the fall. More information will follow on kultdivinitylost.com (which will be re-launched with new design later this summer). KULT: Divinity Lost - 4th Edition will be slightly different to the Original Kickstarter Editions (Enlightened, Illusion, Elysium etc) of KULT: Divinity Lost. The Original Kickstarter Editions are printed in limited numbers and backers (and those who previously pre-ordered) have preference to these books. The Original Kickstarter Editions, as they are limited, will not be made available for retail/wholesale.

As always, reach out to us via PM at Kickstarter or info@helmgast.se.

All the best,
the KDL team

      @Carles Alba Gris: The Everything [Digital] add-on does not include the PDF of the Reference Deck. That is only for those who ordered the physical copy of the reference deck.

    2. Carles Alba Gris on

      @Helmgast AB: One question, will the Reference Deck PDF be sent to those like me who ordered the Everything [DIGITAL] add-on, or is it exclusive to those who specifically ordered the physical Deck of Cards add-on? Thank you.

    3. Helmgast AB Creator on

      @Laguna: Please note that the Tarot Deck is not released as PDF now. Please see our update for more information. The link to the Reference Deck (previously "deck of cards") PDF already has been sent to you, so you should be able to see it in your library at DrivethruRPG/RPGnow. We will anyway re-send the link to you via PM here at Kickstarter to make sure everything works as it should.

    4. Helmgast AB Creator on

      @Laguna - Thanks for the feedback. Our approach (which was discussed in an older update, I believe) is that the plot-twist with the Illusion is not the focus of this game. The characters may not know, but hiding it from the _players_ we see as a problem - the game becomes a one-trick-pony.

      With the Player's Guide, you can tell player's to not read the first chapter, and then they will not know the backstory.

      Hi,

      I have all books but I don't have the tarot and the dereck card, I only say this if you find useful to check all problems with pdfs.

      Anyway, I've seen player's book and I'm very sorry but I'm a bit disappointed. What about to no spoil the player with Demiurge and most of the cosmology of the game? What about to make an adaptation for the player (of couser, it should be simple, not very complex)? I think that if you know most of a terror game (archons, demiurge... the purpose of the game) it is not an horror game, it becomes to a dark urban fantasy game and this should happen when you have played a lot of this game. I'm sorry and please, I do not mean to offend but I'm not going to use it because I have the same problems as with the core book (Note, the core book is good, very very good), the players should not read it. It is not a problem if it is a copy-paste of the core book (because the information is good and enought) bur really, a revission, It is very difficult if you know too much about a game and you want to direct an horror game, so for me this guide is useless, althought the game is so good that i'm happy to have the player's guide.

      I hope you know how to understand the problem, it was commented many times, here and in the forum. Anyway, good cover again.

      Hi! The PDFs for Player's Guide, Taroticum and Other Tales and the Core Rules for KULT: Divinity Lost have been (re-)uploaded, and should work properly within shortly.

      Please check out your library at DriveThruRPG.com/RPGnow.com. We apologize for the inconvenience caused with the previous send out. The links distributed to you should now work properly. Update emails may also be delivered from DrivethruRPG/RPGnow.

      NOTE: There might still be a few PDF items in your order which you have not received. We are sending multiple emails to backers depending on what your order contain. Bear with us until Wednesday 25 July for complete delivery. If anything is missing then, please send us an email on info@helmgast.se or PM us at Kickstarter.

    7. Helmgast AB Creator on

      Hi all! Thanks for you reports below. The issue is limited to the Core Rules, Taroticum and Other Tales and Player's Guide. Other items have been succesfully distributed according to plan.

      DrivethruRPG (who is distributing the PDFs) are looking into this and more information will follow when we have more information.

      Note that it may still take until Wednesday 25 July until you have all your PDFs visible. That includes for example multiple copies of the same PDF. So reports of missing PDFs (other than the known issue of Core Rules, Taroticum and Other Tales and Player's Guide) will not be handled until after 25 July (as 99.99% should be correct then).

      Strangely, I've now gotten The MADONNA campaign and the REFERENCE DECK - but the NARRATOR'S SCREEN, the SCENARIOS' COLLECTION are still missing, and the PLAYER'S GUIDE, the TAROTICUM CAMPAIGN and the CORE RULES are indeed described as "unavailable" on DRIVETHRU. :(

      I was able to download all of the files successfully. The Reference Deck gave me the “no files to download” message once I finished my order, but it was available in my library. Looking forward to reading all of this on my vacation next week!

    10. Grzesiek Zawadka on

      And what about PDF if I ordered 2 physical copies of Black Madonna? How I can get second coupon?

    11. David Chart on

      I did have the problem with the first set of links, but the Black Madonna link worked just fine. Just a data point for you.

      Hi, I've redeemed the codes you sent me but I can't download the PDFs as I just get an error from Drivethru that says "This content is not available".

    13. Helmgast AB Creator on

      Thanks everyone for your reports - we are aware of the issue and are investigating. Hoping this to be resolved today. We think have a workaround that we can do if this is not solved in the near future, so by Wednesday you should have all PDFs. Will get back once we have confirmation everything works.

      Note that all PDFs are not sent in one email, depending on what you have ordered. E.g. the Black Madonna is sent out separately. So don't worry if you have just received some files to date.

      Hi there, Helmgast guys! Behave the postcards, no PDFs are available for me, and some of them (the BLACK MADONNA campaign, e.g.), still ordered, did no appear on my account. So I hope the issue will soon be solved. Thank you for your answer and your help anyways.

      Ah thanks helmgast my bad I missed that in the update. Thanks for the info.

    16. Helmgast AB Creator on

      Hi all! We just got word that we (might) have some technical issues with PDFs distributed earlier this evening. If you have received emails where the links doesn't work and there are no files to download - please ignore.

      New links will follow when everything is up and running again. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and the hassle caused by this.

      I got the links via DriveThruRPG, but most of them don't have any download link associated with them and when I try to view the product page, it doesn't exist.

      Is there a technical issue with them?

      @Stephen Mulligan: As per the update, the bible edition will be printed in September and shipped separately, to not delay shipment of other items

      Will the Bible edition be progressed at the same time?

      @Helmgast: Thank you for the clarification. I can live without the swastika. On the other hand it would fit more in the setting. But well then, I'm fine with that.

    22. Helmgast AB Creator on

      @João - Yes.

    23. Helmgast AB Creator on

      @Sebastien and Krzysztof - When Update 102 was written we feared that we needed to make massive changes to the books, based on the initial feedback from stakeholders. After many discussions, negotiations, and back and forths between all stakeholders, the final outcome was that TaOT was left with no changes at all (!), and TBM was hit with one change, and that was to replace the nazi swastika symbol present in a couple of images. To us, this minor difference does not reasonable warrant two different versions of TBM.

      All in all great news. But I'm a bit dissapointed. I read it too, that you promised to give your backers a 'uncensored' version of the altered material, including BM and Taroticum.

    25. Krzysztof on

      Last I heard The Black Madonna as well as Taroticum & Other Tales were to be released in physical and pdf as “censored version” and you promised to "release the uncensored final version of these items to Kickstarter backers only." I might have missed something that was announced in the comments after Update #102, so please correct me if the plans have changed.

    26. João Mariano on

      @helmgast AB - Will the PDF distribution be done via DrivethruRPG?

    27. Helmgast AB Creator on

      @Spellforger - Metropolis and Inferno have the same timeline as the "normal" Core Rules Books.

      @Krzysztof - There is only one version of The Black Madonna available.

    28. Krzysztof on

      Great news! Will you manage to provide KS backers with uncensored pdfs of Black Madonna?

    29. Spellforger on

      Hi! A question: the Metropolis/Inferno editions have the same estimated delivery dates the other core books have, or are they in a different production slot like the "one of a kind" editions? Or something in between?
