Have a question?
Hey Greg- that sounds about right. If you send me a message with your backer ID I’ll look at your account for you
Hey James, I looked at the backerkit and it said £48 balance. So I take it that the £109 from Get Wet and add ons were charged at the end of the kickstarter but the Wayfarers and extra tokens and shipping are the £48 still waiting to be collected? I had added those things a while ago. Is that balance going to be collected on Feb 7th?
Yep, it'll be open till 7th Feb :).
The Pledge manager extend a little time ?
Huh... I've also just noticed that the update I wrote on Xmas day never went out for some reason...
Hey guys- I should have an update tomorrow. Been very busy getting everything in to final production. Don't worry- everything is fine!
Can we have an update with news about production and miniatures?
Hey Billy- please send me a PM about this in the first week of Jan if you haven't heard from me. I'm 90% sure that the answer will be standard playing card size (63x88mm), specifically for ease of sleeving, but I need to confirm this with the printers before I can go 100% on it.
Quantities depends on what you've ordered, of course! One card for each model, but without wanting to make promises about things that haven't yet been decided, it might be a good idea if you account for an extra 10 cards or so. :)
@Creator - Hi Guys :-D Just sorting out bits and pieces before ordering sleeves for a whole host of cards. Could you let us know quantities and exact dimensions of your cards please? Many thanks in advance :-)
Is it possible to get wishbone (from the wayfarers) as an individual add-on?
I am in love with the model for Wishbone. I didn't quite have the funds for that pledge level myself. But it will be the first model I have ever owned that looks like me. Skin like mine, hair like mine, the facial hair is even really close to mine. Super exited to be getting the whole Wayfarers crew.
Hey @Matthew, I'm aiming for it to be hardback- it will depend on weight but with a bit more information than I had during the Kickstarter, it's looking like that will be possible. Not a guarantee just yet, but a "fairly likely". I certainly want it to be.
Quick question, is the rulebook going to be hard-back
Will the Wayfarers come with stat cards?
Hang on- thinking on it more carefully, I think I may have a way around that. Message me with the email address you have registered on Kickstarter and I'll send you a message and take a look at your pledge.
That's a thorny one- let me give Backerkit an email and see what they say about it.
Using the pre-order store, backerkit doesn't take into account the amount that I pledged during the Kickstarter. I only wanted the rule book so pledged £27, but when I go through to PayPal I'm still being charged £31.50. Any suggestions?
Hey folks- so, for you £2 pledge level folks, the option is there when you log in to your survey, but (strangely, I realise) you need to ignore the big buttons that say "add ons" and click the link instead.
I've illustrated the process in today's update so you shouldn't have any further problems.
For some strange reason Backerkit isn't able to charge postage ONLY to backers who bought add ons- I have to charge the entire pledge level, or nobody. So the workaround is creating an add on store, which is linked in your survey.
If you have any more trouble contact me on here and I'll send you a link :).
I'm also wanting to know about the 'add on only' missing add ons options please.
Same query as below, how to add on miniatures as an add on only?
I could have sworn I had already filled out this PM.. but here I am staring at it again.
I have a feeling loads of backers will up their pledge to include the wayfarers.
You are quite the merchant james ;)
Hi James! The Info on the PM looks wrong ;-)
Estimated Lockdown Date: 01/01/17.
@James Baldwin : Great !
Just got the survey, but noticed a tiny problem; other than the tip jar, there's no add-ons listed. My pledge is under the add-on only level, so I don't know if that would've affected things.
Hi Terry- it'll be open till at least the end of the year, perhaps more- I'll give decent notice before closing it out though.
I've just filled in the survey, but I've got a question, when will it close. Seeing how I want to increase my pledge level, but can't afford it right now
Yeah! Just filled out the survey!
It seems we are on a good way :)
Hi Paul, It has been asked before, several times, so I really should put it in an FAQ! There's an update coming very soon in any case.
The Master Builder pledge is for everything unlocked during the Kickstarter, so no, it doesn't include the Wayfarers as well. However, I have put them up as an extra for a very special price :).
Not sure if this has been asked before - is the wayfarer faction part of the master builder pledge? Or is it something I would need to add on?
Hey buddy- I'm pretty sure you'll be able to view them on Facebook without needing to join the site.
In any case I'll copy everything over to the website blog as well periodically!
Thanks for the Update today.
The new Minis look great, is there any chance without Facebook to get a look at the other pics?
Is there anyone in northern Germany (Hamburg and north) who wants to playtest some games?
Update went out today guys. I'm afraid this early in the development process you'll need to expect it to be a bit quiet- there really isn't going to be much interesting to tell you.
As far as new fluff or fiction is concerned, all my free time is taken up with developing the rulebook. I'm currently writing 5 hours a day on top of my paid job, and so I don't want to take time away from that to update the website. When the rulebook is written, or at least further along, I'll be blogging again, but for the moment I need to concentrate on the main goal.
Anyway, about an update a month is the best i've been able to do so far, and I think that's a reasonable amount of communication for the early part of the campaign, where inevitably there won't be a great deal to tell. I'm looking forward to actual prototypes and artwork coming in, so I can make a few shorter, but more exciting updates! Soon!
I've been thinking the same thing. Pretty quiet on TDE front.
After such an amazing campaign, and the growth of a great community, it's a shame things have gone so quiet here, on Facebook, and on the Drowned Earth webpage. Any chance of an update? New fluff or fiction?
hoping to get an update soon or better yet get the pledge manager open
Hi. Any news?
Hey Andrew. The beta versions are already in the downloads section of the website: www.thedrownedearth.com
How do you get access to rules and cards etc as a backer?
No indeed- I replied to Fall privately explaining that. Won't be too much longer now.
@fall, I'm not sure the pledge manager is even online at the moment
Sorry but I did not receive a link or
e-mail for my pledge
Just adjusted my printer and made me some standees.
Terrain is almost finished and next week i will get my mate and me a good time rolling some dice for feats and nails ;)
Speaking of dinos ... are most people content to just get a pair of each? Or does anyone thing we need multiple sets?
I will probably bet he only one in my gaming group to get minis, so I need enough for everyone (not just what I might field). Thoughts?
One day without Drowned Earth... damn...
=D Sweet! Dinosaurs!!
Great value on the Master Builder pledge ... 31 miniatures for £200 works out at £6.45 each, not including the rulebook, templates, dice and tokens. And some of these minis are giant gorillas or £18-22 cavalry models. Great campaign too ... the competitions and videos added a lot of interest. Now if I can just learn to paint faster by next April!
