Terrain Essentials FAQ - Part One
Thank you all for your continued support. Your sharing the project is bringing more terrainiacs at a very steady pace!
We’ve had quite few questions asked in these early stages, and we thought we’d cover two of them this evening:
1) Add-ons like T-shirts and coffee mugs - we really appreciate that you would love some great TTT swag, but we want to keep this campaign focused on the book itself. All of our planning has been around that, and we’d hate to make a mistake and end up having issues with different shipping costs, International charges and tariffs on cotton t-shirts, and broken mugs. We do have some ideas that we’ll be discussing, but they’ll be more closely related to the ideas behind the book.
Having said all that, once the campaign closes, we’ll be looking at places like teespring to bring you some fun shirts so you will be able to represent TTT whenever you are out and about!
2) Autographed copies - We know that many of you would like a signed copy of Terrain Essentials, and would be willing to pay. Mel and I talked through a number of different scenarios, and we both feel a bit odd about charging an extra $10 for a signature, plus additional shipping that it would no doubt cost. So, we’ve decided to revive a classic - the bookplate!
We’re going to print a Kickstarter Exclusive bookplate for each book sold through the campaign and pledge manager. Mel will sign each and every one of them, and they can be much more easily shipped to our fulfillment hubs for inclusion with your books. We hope you like this, and you can check out the mini-stretch goal graphic below for a mock-up of what it could look like.
Finally, not really a question/answer, but Mel has popped up a quick chat video on The Terrain Tutor channel here: https://youtu.be/VIZzN9257Y4
