Heads Up - Charging Credit Cards for BackerKit Orders

Posted by Richard Thomas (Creator)

Hi Changeling Community,

Just wanted to give you a little heads up that we plan to charge cards for add-on items you purchased or any additional funds you may owe through BackerKit tomorrow, December 7. Make sure that you have the correct card information on file. If any issues arise with your payment you’ll receive an email letting your know to correct your payment information.

Again - this is only for purchases or payments to be made via Backerkit. If you completely paid for your pledge and add-ons during the kickstarter campaign, you're all set for this step.

If you need to review payment information, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com 

Next Due Date: Address Information finalized and locked in on December 14th.

A reminder will go out a few days before this due date as part of the process --  we will be locking in shipping information for all physical deliveries on December 14th. That means we'll be delivering your book to whatever address you've got set up in BackerKit as of that day - please confirm it's correct and where you'll be to receive the books in the next few months.  

We take responsibility to ship the rewards to the address you've provided by that cut off date - if it's incorrect, we will still consider our obligation fulfilled, so it's incumbent on you to ensure that we have the correct information.

 
If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com

It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.

Today is the last day to make final updates to your order. Tomorrow, we will lock your reward selections and begin preparation to charge cards for add-on item purchases, pledge upgrades, and pre-orders. You can update your shipping address up until we lock addresses for shipping.  

If you haven’t answered your survey yet, if you fill out your BackerKit survey or pay for extra shipping after today's order due date, we’ll still receive your information but your shipment may be delayed.

If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com

THANK YOU!  

Thank you all again for being so responsive to answering our BackerKit survey—even though it may not seem like much as an individual backer, you have no idea how tremendously helpful this has been for me when trying to keep track of all 2,446 of you!

Thanks everyone for your support!  

Next Due Date: Payment Information finalized and charged on DECEMBER 7th, 2018.  

Next Due Date: Address Information finalized and locked in on DECEMBER 14th, 2018.

SURVEY REVIEW & LOCK DOWN

Posted by Richard Thomas (Creator)
20 likes

Hello Changeling Community!


All the leaves have fallen off the tree in front of house this week. I can read the signs.

It was nearly a year ago, December 14, 2017, that we successfully concluded phase 1 of this kickstarter campaign. That was the funding part, and we had a great time and built an awesome community.

One year later, on December 14, 2018, I would like to hand off our information to our fulfillment partner so they can begin delivering on the project we funded. 

IT'S TIME TO LOCK DOWN THE SURVEYS AND PREPARE FOR SHIPPING!!


With that goal in mind, I ask that everyone reviews their BackerKit survey to confirm rewards and lock in information. Information below on how to access your Survey again, but key follow-up steps are:

1. CONFIRM REWARDS - I'll be locking down all Reward Lists, so if you wanted to add any additional rewards, please do so by NOVEMBER 23rd, 2018. In two weeks time, I will lock down all reward lists and you won't be able to adjust or add anything after that time.  

2. CONFIRM ALL PAYMENT INFORMATION - For any additions you made in BackerKit, or any payments that did not process at the end of the Kickstarter campaign, please ensure your payment information is up to date, valid, and ready to be processed by DECEMBER 7th, 2018. In four weeks time, I will instruct BackerKit to lock down and process all outstanding payments.  

3. CONFIRM SHIPPING INFORMATION - Please ensure your shipping information is up-to-date with your expected address for December 2018. Please ensure that this information is entered and correct by DECEMBER 14th, 2018. In five weeks time, I will take the shipping information we have for you in BackerKit and provide that to our fulfillment partners, so they can begin shipping one week later.

ADDRESS CONFIRMATION & DELIVERY OBLIGATIONS.  

Consider this the six-weeks-from-shipping warning to update your information, after which point, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into our pledge manager system to the address listed in BackerKit, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods. Failure to confirm mailing address prior to December 14, 2018 will be taken as agreement that all obligations have been met and no further action or effort is required on the part of Onyx Path.  

(Of course, if you're getting digital rewards only, you don't need to worry about your address. This is just for the physical book and screen).

SHIPPING UPDATE TO COME  

This is all in anticipation of shipping in the upcoming months. I will send another update when the books are actually ready to go and will begin shipping, but we need to have this information locked down prior to that stage. If you find yourself in an unusual circumstance or your residence unexpectedly changes between DECEMBER 14th and the date I send out the shipping update, contact me to see what I can do at that time.

BACKERKIT REVIEW

To review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com/faq.

I'll continue to monitor the comment section for this campaign and answer any questions that come up. If you have any issues or problems with other aspects of the project, you can let me know here and we'll figure out a solution. Additionally, I'll be forwarded any important questions that are sent in via the CONTACT ME button under the Rich's creator link on the main page.  

I will send out our regular month-end update with progress on all rewards noted, as well as a reminder about BackerKit information lock down dates. Until then, continue to prepare to break through the Hedge!

It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.

Halloween 2018 Update!

Hello Changeling Community,

Is James wearing a vampire costume because it's Halloween? Read on to find out...
Is James wearing a vampire costume because it's Halloween? Read on to find out...

 Happy Halloween! And welcome to your monthly Changeling: The Lost update.

 
It's not quite winter yet, but my hometown has seen the first snowfall of the season... even though I still have some green leaves on my trees!

Nevertheless, time moves forward, and projects advance in kind.

And now, into our Halloween summary. I've updated each pending project with the current status from the Onyx Path Monday Meeting notes <linked here> and will outline what to expect over the next weeks...

REWARD TRACKING - Completed Rewards (Sent to Backers)  

  • Arcadian Memories PDF Bundle (1E Bundle)  
  • Chronicles 2E Core PDF Bundle 
  • Chronicles of Darkness Core Book PDF 
  • OnyxDice CtL D10 
  • Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Core Book PDF (Backer Edition)

REWARD TRACKING - PENDING  

  • Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Core Book Hardcover - Preparing to Print 
  • Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition POD Coupon - pending hardcover completion 
  • Storyteller's Screen - Preparing to Print 
  • Storyteller's Screen PDF - pending print completion 
  • Kith & Kin PDF - outline 
  • Oak, Ash, and Thorn: the Changeling Companion PDF - Development
  • Fiction Anthology - outline 
  • Changeling: The Lost Jumpstart - Art has been contracted, proof-reading review

So, some solid movement on the Jumpstart and Oak, Ash, and Thorn. But, even more exciting: the book is about to be printed!

That means all test copies have been reviewed and approved and the printer has the final files. They are now able to schedule the print run, and then do all the finishing work that concludes with an awesome hardcover book!

Once the printer has completed the job, they will package up the books and prepare to send to Onyx Path's fulfillment partner for this project. At that time, I will send an important update with a SIX WEEK COUNTDOWN. During that countdown, we will:

  • Lock in all pledge orders, so you won't be able to add any additional items
  • Process all BackerKit payments, so anything that you added after the campaign will be processed
  • Lock in final shipping addresses

Again, we are still some time away from beginning these final steps... but they're getting close! If you want to begin the process early, please review your pledge and rewards to ensure you've got everything you want, confirm payment information, and make sure your shipping address is updated.

 
If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com

Again, we're not there yet... but we're getting close! So excited!!

KICKSTARTER CONCIERGE

Even as the seasons begin to move from one to the next, we begin wrapping up one project and start working on another. It's Kickstarter Concierge time, and now I can reveal why I'm dressed like a Vampire!

 
Chicago lies at the center of the web that is the American heartland. Tendrils of power, wealth, and reward stretch outward, ensnaring the selfish, greedy, and unwary.  

Yet, Chicago attracts its predators, too.  

There are creatures that would have the city for their own, spinning their own webs of malice and intrigue. But among the city’s towering skyscrapers and wind-swept streets, who is the spider and who is the fly?  

Chicago By Night, an updated edition of White Wolf’s bestselling city book, will be Onyx Path Publishing’s first supplement for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition.

In this hardcover supplement, you will find descriptions of most of the Kindred inhabitants of Chicago, complete with 5th Edition write ups; the secret history of Chicago with detailed maps and geographical details; relationship details and factions; and dozens of encounters organized by theme, which provide Storytellers a means to make the setting come alive for the players.

If you're interested in checking out the shadowy streets of Chicago, head on over and join us: Here's the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/200664283/chicago-by-night-for-vampire-the-masquerade-5th-ed

End of September 2018 Update

Hello Changeling Community,

It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.
It's James, your point person for this Kickstarter campaign.


It's been about 2 months since we sent out our last big reward, the backers edition of Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition. Typically what happens after that is errata collection, corrections, indexing, and then submission to the printer to get print proofs to double-check that everything's working properly and we are good to proceed. 

So, that's the long process that we're in the middle of, and this is an unexciting status report just to keep everyone on the same page. The good news is the final book isn't too far off now - we're in the home stretch, but have to be patient during those final steps.


If you need to review your information or pledge status, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com.

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com/faq.

It's probably a good idea to double-check your BackerKit payment info (if you've purchased Add Ons or Pre-Orders through BackerKit) and your shipping address. I'll send out a notice 6 weeks prior to shipping the book with a countdown to locking in orders, processing payments, and locking in shipping info. But, getting that sorted now means you don't have to worry about it in a few months' time.

 
And now, into our Autumn summary. I've updated each pending project with the current status from the Onyx Path Monday Meeting notes <linked here> and added the name of the Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Companion, which is now officially revealed as Oak, Ash, and Thorn.

REWARD TRACKING - Completed Rewards (Sent to Backers)

  • Arcadian Memories PDF Bundle (1E Bundle) 
  • Chronicles 2E Core PDF Bundle  
  • Chronicles of Darkness Core Book PDF 
  • OnyxDice CtL D10 
  • Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Core Book PDF (Backer Edition)

REWARD TRACKING - PENDING

  • Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Core Book Hardcover - Indexing
  • Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition POD Coupon - pending hardcover completion
  • Storyteller's Screen - at White Wolf for approval
  • Storyteller's Screen PDF - pending White Wolf approval
  • Kith & Kin PDF - outline
  • Oak, Ash, and Thorn: the Changeling Companion PDF - 2nd Draft
  • Fiction Anthology - outline
  • Changeling: The Lost Jumpstart - Editing

So, some progress on our Stretch Goal rewards, everything moving forward. I think we're going to move a lot of rewards from the Pending to Completed category this Autumn, so let's enjoy the season and the changes that come with it.

For discussion on Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition, visit the official Onyx Path forums <link>.

If you have any other questions or concerns, you can post them to the comments for this update, the comment section, or contact the team via the Contact Creator link on the kickstarter page and Rich will forward it to me.
