Greeting Explorers,  

We hope you had a great summer vacation! On our side, the summer was particularly studious...

Wave 1.5 deliveries  

The shipment of wave 1.5 orders (as a reminder, this is for content already available in wave 1: uncorrected core box, play mat, card sleeves, etc.) that some backers have requested to receive in 2 shipments so as not to wait for wave 2 deliveries, will start by mid-September.  

If you are one of these backers, you will be notified via email by the distribution center to which you depend, when your package will be shipped. If you have moved, please note that it is no longer possible to change your address via your Pledge Manager account but you can still send an email in the coming days to our support team kickstarter@seriouspoulp.com so that we can make the change manually. Of course, once your order is shipped it will be too late to make this change!  

Wave 2 content  

Panda has started printing the old expansions (The Icy Maze, Fear the Devourers, etc...).  

Ludovic finalized the (hundreds of) illustrations for the new expansions and all the texts have been translated and are now being proofread and integrated.  

Pre-production (imposition, checking of digital proofs, etc.) has started for the finalized “Comfort Creatures” and “The Flying Roots” expansions. And the same will be done in the weeks to come for the contents of the “white box”.  

While waiting for the start of printing which should be spread out until the end of the year, here is the third and final character to reach the continent: Anjika!

      Bonjour Poulpe,

      Petite question : quand l’extension elle même et toute seule (je n’ai pris que cela) sera elle livrée en France et en français svp ?
      J’avoue être un peu perdu et en plus comprendre :(

      Merci
      Stef

      I received a notice of shipment preparations for my rookie pledge core box from fulfillment 2 days ago, in Canada.

      US backer as well, no tracking info.

      I mean, I’m not crazy worried. I’d love to have it in my hands right away, but I also have a ton of games on my Pile of Shame that need some attention before I get to 7th Continent. As long as it comes to me intact and without a ton of errors, I’ll be happy.

      I mean, I just waited for OblivAeon from GTG. It’ll come when it comes and these guys have at least shown they know how to deliver on a KS, unlike others.

      Hi, so wave 2 is STILL expected to be delivered Q1 next year right? Just checking if it's still on track ... Q1 2019 is quite a delay already.

      Wow, what a ride this has been. For every high there has been a low and so my sincerest empathy to everyone, creators included. I've been one of those folks who went from extreme excitement to extreme disappointment and back and forth a few times as time went by. Bad communication, 'vanity' error corrections and extended delays and costs all balanced out by the hottest game on the market and hundreds of hours of gameplay. All these expectations and projections have now luckily left me in a 'Meh, I'll see it when I see it' mood, my enthusiasm, fortunately, having been absorbed by other KS projects.
      .
      The upside is that there is a lot to learn from this tragically successful KS project. By the creators as well as backers. I know I have and it's a sobering, but very much needed lesson. We all get up on our high horses, either crying foul or telling folks to just calm down and all of us get our moment in the spotlight. Point is that Serious Poulp is trying as best as they can and backers are struggling with the information they are getting (or feel they're not getting). A great lesson in communication and expectations lies here somewhere - perhaps one day to be explored as deeply as the 7th Continent itself. Peace.

      @RIJ - That's how I interpret it, yes. If you are out of cards, Perseverance won't help you improve the success of an action, but it would stop a game-ending Curse.

      If you were out of cards in the Action deck, you'd be drawing from the discard pile. The effect of Perseverance would allow you to remove the curse card, and then shuffle it into the Action deck. Since you don't have Action Deck, you'd create a new one made up of that one Curse card, then draw from the Action Deck, drawing the same card again.

      But since it was drawn from the Action Deck and not the Discard Pile the second time, you would avoid a Game Over.

      RIJ on

      Does Perseverance prevent death? E.g. you hunt, say, and draw a curse from your graveyard. Can you then put it into your action deck and not die?

      Schleima on

      @Curtiss, visits on previous excursions are not relevant to a player story which is to take place in the game-specific present. Like I said previously this could be made into a super cool Anjika-specific story mechanic where her mentor is lost and Anjika gets a character specific result if she finds him, but barring that it seems her backstory has a large, Milton-sized hole.

    15. Curtiss Cox on

      @Schleima - I don't recall any others mentioned specifically in back story text like Anjika's.

      But there are many cards that refer to other visitors to the island by name (from previous excursions), even though they are not playable characters in the game.

    16. Lucas Heineman on

      @ Rhindon also, that was my only comment and question for this entire campaign, I made a suggestion after acknowledging it was my fault for missing the info provided. Hope you feel better.

    17. Lucas Heineman on

      @ Rhindon I think it's safe to say you're more upset than I was. People "asking stupid questions" and scan reading 72 updates is gonna happen. Take a pill dude.

      I should have said "unplayable", not nowhere to be found. Blast this lack of an edit button!

      Schleima on

      @Curtiss, are there any named characters in any of the other characters' backstories that explicitly say they traveled with them to the continent and then they are nowhere to be found?

      Anjika's backstory reads to me like it is introduced as if they were a team like Passepartout and Mr Fogg, but then only Passepartout is playable.

      Another excellent update. Huge thanks for being so transparent, honest and responsive in this campaign. You have always been very clear about what's happening and there is plenty of info available for those of us with questions. I've loved playing the base game and look forward to the expansions :)

      There are several named characters in the game's lore that explored the continent but are not also playable characters.

      It's possible that Harvey will show up in the new release! We will have to see.

      You guys are machines! Thanks again for your hard work.

    25. Ben J on

      @Schleima, that's a great summary. Anjika's backstory explicitly says that both she and Harvey Milton have left London to explore the 7th Continent together, and yet Harvey is not a playable character.

      However, what later occurred it me is that when you play 7th Continent, this is not your first time on the continent. You have just returned from the first expedition on the seventh continent. So Harvey not being a playable character on this second trip to the island is not a continuity flaw, as he was part of the first expedition even if he's not around this time.

      As I recall, some of the notes found on tutorial island refer to other previous travelers from the first expedition to the continent that aren't playable characters, and there's no problem there.

      Schleima on

      @Curtiss, I think @Ben was inferring that Anjika's backstory explicitly says that both she and Harvey Milton have left London to explore the 7th Continent together, and yet Harvey is not a playable character.

      At face value, that appears to be a continuity flaw... that is, unless SP has Harvey show up in some other capacity as part of Anjika's story with some new type of player-specific mechanic.

      Still, it would seem that if Harvey somehow went missing (for example) only to have Anjika find him elsewhere on the continent, his disappearance should be mentioned upfront in Anjika's backstory.

      Otherwise, Harvey does appear to be a hanging narrative thread with no apparent resolution.

      @George - that's right. People who opted for single wave shipping will get everything in wave 2 which is delayed to Q1 2019. Which equates to end of March, maybe a little sooner if we're lucky.

      I did the ship all at once option to save on shipping costs. I don't read the updates closely because I have too many and I try to not get to invested in timelines etc. I do remember vaguely there was a delay for single wave shipping, which is fine. I have more games than I could ever get too.

      If I am tracking right, the single wave shipping is currently scheduled to start around March of 2019? Thanks.

      ->@Jamie, your last comment about automatic shipping of the replacement cards needs to be boldfaced and tagged. So many people seem to have invented their own complicated steps whereas SP is doing the right thing by making the corrections as easy as possible to receive.

      Were that a possibility. Mind you we have repeated it multiple times by now ^^’

      ->@Swindy if you want to purchase backers errors card I recommend posting your email or something so they can contact you

      Or simply visiting the BGG forums ^^

      An ethologist seems to be someone that studies animal behavior... but other than that it just seems like a fictional character.

      Correct, but you can still play with them.

      @Lucas Heineman: The delay was mentioned under the heading, "Wave 2", which would indicate that it's information about Wave 2. I don't think there was specific need to call it out further, but maybe that's just me. I also don't think it's too much to ask for people to actually READ the updates, rather than just skim them. If someone doesn't actually read the update, then I have very little sympathy for them misunderstanding something that's been clearly explained in the update.

      If everyone were to actually read the updates (there's only about one every month, so it's not like it's a huge amount of time to read them), then we would have a great deal fewer stupid questions in the comments. Good job, @Jamie, for not losing it and screaming at everyone asking the same questions over and over. ;)

    38. Alexander Wolf on

      So about six more months for wave 2 correct? With production and the boat trip, I should probably start looking for tracking around March. Maybe just call it safe to say between March and June.

      Ok, glad the delay was mentioned. However, that pretty important detail in the linked update below in the comments is buried among a lot of other production details. Fairly easy to miss if one is scanning. Shouldn't a delay like that be called out in bold "Wave 2 shipping update" or be the headline of the update?
      Not upset here, just saying.
