Reward Distribution & Shipping Update

Posted by Richard Thomas (Creator)

 Hello Changeling Community!

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

It's a pretty exciting day for Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition. We're about to move a few more rewards from the "pending" to "delivered" lists, and I've also got an update on shipping for those still waiting to receive their amazing hardcover book.

Today's topics:

1. Shipping update

2. New Digital Reward Distribution

3. Reward Tracking update

4. Kickstarter Concierge

SHIPPING UPDATE

There were A LOT of books to ship out for this one! To add to the complexity of this big project, Onyx Path's fulfillment partner received the product in waves over the year-end holidays. To manage the skids of product coming in (and going out) and the holiday staffing schedule, kickstarter orders were broken out into 4 waves:

i. US book only orders

ii. International book only orders

iii. US orders that include the screen

iv. International orders that include the screen

I've received an update today. The fulfillment warehouse has completed the first three waves, and are working on the fourth this week - international orders that include the reference screen. (Orders with the screen were shipped later because the screens actually delivered a bit after the books, and rather than wait until everything was in place, they started shipping what they could).

So, within the next 3 days, ALL remaining orders should be out the door and on their way to you. If you are a non-US resident and were afraid of being missed... worry not! Your order is being picked, packed, and prepared to ship even as you read this.

Thanks to everyone for their patience as the shipping team works through the skids of product, and thanks to everyone who's already received their orders for sharing some amazing pictures on social media!

NEW REWARD DISTRIBUTION

Along with the hardcover rulebook shipping out, the PDF version has been updated to the final release, mirroring all of the updates and errata that were adjusted prior to printing. If you've already claimed your PDF copy, you should have received a notice today from our partners at DrivethruRPG.com letting you know that an updated version is now available for download in your library.

For those who hadn't yet claimed their PDF rulebook, the latest version is now available and can be claimed via your reward code from our BackerKit site.

IN ADDITION, the distribution for the following rewards has taken place, and these will also be available in your BackerKit Digital Reward page:

- "At Cost" Print-On-Demand Coupons (for both standard heavyweight and premium heavyweight PoD versions of the book). 

- The Storyteller's Reference Screen PDF version

Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the host for this, you will need to set up a DriveThru account if you don't have one already. If you encounter any problems with downloading your rewards, please contact DTRPG's customer service to resolve the matter, they've always been top-rated for customer service. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/contact_us.php

GET YOUR DOWNLOAD CODES:

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.

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.

THEY CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA!

And, one last time - we're in our final week of the kickstarter campaign for They Came from Beneath the Sea!, the new tabletop RPG from Onyx Path, encompassing the wonder, horror, thrills, and hilarity of 1950s science fiction. This game evokes all that is great in the B-movies of decades ago, and provides a dynamic, fun experience at the table.  

Don't miss out on the fun of aquatic aliens and square-jawed heroes. Check out the kickstarter while they're still time! They Came from Beneath the Sea!
 

YEAR-END UPDATE (Another Digital Reward)

Hello Changeling Community,

Yes, I'm a teenie bit early, but I have another digital reward to go out, and wanted to get it to you as soon as possible.

Why is James dressed like he's from the Black Lagoon? Read on to find out...

SHIPPING UPDATE

Orders have been locked, payments have been processed, addresses have been confirmed and collected, and now the most important part - the books have arrived at the fulfillment warehouse!!

Which means, we're *almost* there. Close enough that I'm going to mark it as "Shipping Now", even though it may be a few more days. The Storyteller Screens are on their way to the warehouse now, and should deliver soon. Once both physical pieces (the book and the screen) are there, Onyx Path's fulfillment partners can begin the huge process of printing orders, picking, packing,and shipping. In the end, we have almost 3,000 orders of various configurations for this book, so it's going to be a big job! 

The year-end holidays will throw a bit of a wrench into the schedule, but the team will work as quickly as possible to get your orders out. Then we begin the waiting game. And rather than continually hitting refresh on our order tracking, I thought it would be fun to have something to read while we wait...

NEW DIGITAL REWARD DISTRIBUTION

 
One of our "Spring" Stretch Goals was a Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Jumpstart, and here it is: HEARTS ON TRIAL.

Your link to claim the HEARTS ON TRIAL Backer PDF will be sent out by our BackerKit pledge manager over the next two days. Since we are using our partners at DriveThruRPG as the host for this, you will need to set up a DriveThru account if you don't have one already. If you encounter any problems with downloading your rewards, please contact DTRPG's customer service to resolve the matter, they've always been top-rated for customer service. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/contact_us.php

Again, you will receive an e-mail from BackerKit with a link for the HEARTS ON TRIAL PDF today or tomorrow if it is on your expected list of rewards. 

The easiest way to see if you've got digital downloads available is to login to your backerkit account: https://changeling-the-lost-2nd-edition.backerkit.com/backer/digital_rewards and it'll show anything available. Your backerkit account should also confirm all rewards that you should expect from your reward tier selected.

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. You can also access your available DOWNLOADS from your BackerKit page, which will shortly include the Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Jumpstart PDF!

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.

BACKER PDF VERSION  

This is the first version of HEARTS ON TRIAL to be released. We've sent you this initial Backer PDF for three reasons:

1) To thank you for your support! This was one of our campaign Stretch Goals, so it came into the world because of your passion! You deserve to see it first!  

2) So you can start a new Changeling: The Lost game right away! Jumpstarts have been popular for a reason - a pre-built springboard to launch your new chronicle, with tips and guidance where you need it. 

3) To make the final version the best it can be! The design and development teams have done their best to proofread and correct any errors and typos - but some always sneak through. If you catch any typos, incorrect math, visual glitches, and the like, we want to hear about them and correct them before we send the book off to print.  

You can report any such issues on the Onyx Path forums here:

Hearts on Trial: The Changeling: The Lost 2nd Edition Jumpstart errata: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/main-category/main-forum/the-new-world-of-darkness/changeling-the-lost/1275255-changeling-2nd-edition-jumpstart-errata

Generally, we try to keep these threads open for the next 2 weeks, although they may be accessible a little longer due to the holiday. Still, please report what you can as soon as possible to make sure we're getting everything covered.

We won't be collecting errata from other spots, just those specific threads on the Onyx Path forum. Please note these threads will be for errata only - typos, incorrect math, page elements that overlap incorrectly, etc. It won't be for book discussion - you can do that in a different thread, or on the Kickstarter comments page.  

After any needed corrections are made (based on your feedback!), we will prepare an updated final PDF version of the book and you will receive a notice that you can re-download your file with the latest version.

You've already made this supplement a reality with your Kickstarter support. Now you can make it even better by helping us crowdsource any minor errors and corrections.

Speaking of which...

The Kickstarter for They Came From Beneath The Sea! is now live!

They Came From Beneath The Sea! is a new tabletop RPG from Onyx Path, encompassing the wonder, horror, thrills, and hilarity of 1950s science fiction. This game evokes all that is great in the B-movies of decades ago, and provides a dynamic, fun experience at the table.  

The players, as humans, live in a world under increasing attack. The attackers? Aliens from beneath the sea, obviously!  

Adventures can range from the one-shot defense of small coastal town, to the lengthier liberation of a cruise ship invested with gill-kin, all the way to a campaign in which characters seize an alien submarine and ride it all the way down to the sea bed to take the fight to the invaders.  

Put down your malt shakes, turn on the jukebox, and prepare your harpoons! You don’t want to be caught unawares when it’s revealed that They Came From Beneath The Sea!

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

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 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.

SURVEY REVIEW & LOCK DOWN

Posted by Richard Thomas (Creator)

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 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!
