EX3 Charm Cards PDF links sent out!

11 likes

Hello EX3 KS backers!

RichT here:

I just sent out the links for the Exalted 3rd Edition Charm Cards PDF to all backers who pledged for a Reward Tier from Scholar of Lore ($25) or higher. This was a Stretch Goal reward that all of you unlocked with your pledges, so thank you so much for enabling us to create it!

We had expected 200+ Charm Cards when I set up this Stretch Goal, but from the finished EX3 book there are actually 800+ Charm Cards, so there are three separate PDFs that divide up the huge mass of cards into numbers manageable by the DriveThruCards site.

When we make these available to the general public as PDFs and physical card PoD versions, we may change the way they are arranged for sale, but right now, for your Stretch Goal reward of the EX3 Charm Cards PDF, this is how the files are set up: Set 1 starts with Archery and ends with Investigation. Set 2 starts with Larceny and ends with Resistance. Set 3 starts with Ride and ends with War.

If you have not received the links message, please first check to be sure you backed for a Reward Tier that is Scholar of Lore ($25) or higher. Then please check that the email you are checking is the one you gave Kickstarter, and whether the message containing the EX3 Charm Cards PDF link is not stacked in an email thread where you can't see it. Then please check your Spam filters, particularly, but not limited to, if you have a HotMail email address.

If you still can't find it, send me a message through that Contact Creator link near or under my photo, and we'll sort things out.

As per the link message, we have created an errata thread on the Onyx Path forums for any slips you might notice. We will take those comments, review and incorporate the valid ones into the files, and create a final PDF and physical copy PoD version for sale on DriveThruCards.com.

As backers, those changes will automatically be part of the next download you do of the PDF, so that's all you need to do.

Thanks!

Hello Ex3 backers!

RichT here:

Right now, the interior printing for both Deluxe Editions is wrapping up, and the book sections are being compiled. The cover graphics are ready, and the stamps for the regular deluxe cover and spine, and the spine of the Ultra Deluxe are being prepped. The Ultra metal plate has been finalized and should be rolling forward now (the cutting and stamping and prepping for joining to the book cover).

Still a bit to go to pull all the sections together, and we still have to go through the gilding phase in there somewhere.

The EX3 Screen should be done on press next week, and will ship with the main book.

Also shipping with the main book are the EX3 Charm Cards, around 300 cards, which are being proofed before being sent to the printer, and the Chibi bookmarks, which we are sending to press next month as they are fast to print, cut, and bundle together.

Also also shipping with the book: the EX3 canvas map is ready for press, but we need to pick a new fabric as the one we picked based on our tests several years ago has been discontinued. Samples should arrive here this week and then that will get rolling on press too.

Additional EX3 Kickstarter stuff:

Here is the update list from this week as presented in my weekly Monday Meeting Notes blog:

First Draft

•Exalted 3rd Novel by Matt Forbeck (Exalted 3rd Edition)

Redlines

•EX3 Jumpstart (Exalted 3rd Edition)

Second Draft

•Arms of the Chosen (Exalted 3rd Edition)
•The Realm (Exalted 3rd Edition)
•Dragon-Blooded (Exalted 3rd Edition)

Proofing

•Ex 3 Charm Cards

While other projects that were part of this KS are not on the list, because they are still in the planning stages before writing actually starts, I did want to mention one of them specifically: the EX3 Music Suites.

I have heard several finished tracks, and a ton of sketches and ideas that either didn't pan out to what we were looking for or which were then developed into parts of the finishes. The finished ones are very evocative of the Exalted they represent, and I'm really looking forward to hearing the next ones.

Both Onyx Path and the composer, James Semple recognize that the composition of these tracks has regrettably dragged out over the past several years, and after we discussed this, he wanted me to share this note with you all:

"Hi Exalted fans, James Semple here with a quick update on the Exalted music. Firstly I'd like to apologise to you all for the length of time this is taking me. There have been various changes of circumstances in my life that have had a large impact on the schedule (moving house, setting up a new studio, changes of jobs, etc) however the good news is that all is settled and I've been making excellent progress on the main Exalted themes this year. I appreciate everyone's patience and Rich has been great at keeping a sense of urgency on this project. The even better news is that I can say with my hand on my heart that this is absolutely the best music I have written to date. Exalted has been a huge inspiration and I have really put my heart and soul into these tracks. I do understand that everyone's interpretation of what fits Exalted music is entirely personal and subjective so all I can say is that I am definitely pleased with the final versions of these themes and I am achieving what I set out to."

Thanks!

Hello Deluxe EX3 Backers!

RichT here:

Last month, I told you about waiting for the printer proofs for the Deluxe EX3. I got them, fine-tuned them with the printer, and signed off on them. Here's what they looked like (I tried to get an angle on the stack of interior position proofs to demonstrate the heft of those things):

Right now, the interior of the Deluxe EX3 is being printed.

In fact, here are some pics our printer was nice enough to take of the first two sections to come off the press:

 

The Ex3 Screen is with the printer. I'm working with the map printer as well for the canvas map. Charm Cards and Chibi Bookmarks are being prepared. The Music Suites continue to be composed.

FYI: It is our intention that all of the physical rewards will also be available as PDF/electronic rewards, and any that can also be available as physical products beyond the Kickstarter, whether Print on Demand or overrrun copies from the KS print jobs, will be as well as soon as we can after we get backers their rewards.

Meanwhile... This is the status of other EX3 related projects:

First Draft (The first phase of a project that is about the work being done by writers, not dev prep)

•Exalted 3rd Novel by Matt Forbeck (Exalted 3rd Edition)

Redlines

•EX3 Quickstart (Exalted 3rd Edition)

Second Draft

•Arms of the Chosen (Exalted 3rd Edition)

•The Realm (Exalted 3rd Edition)

•Dragon-Blooded (Exalted 3rd Edition)

And we just need confirmation from the Devs that all the errata, including an additional Backer Charm that expands on one of those already in the book, is completely fnished for the Backer Charm book and we will finalize the PDF and create the PoD version and put them up for general sale. Once again, thanks to all of you who sent us notes on this!

Onyx Path'll be at Gen Con next week and we hope to see any of you attending the convention. Come by the booth and say Hi! (John and Holden will not be able to attend this year due to an ongoing family medical situation).

Thanks for your support, as always!

Hello Deluxe EX3 Backers!

RichT here:

Right now, we are prepping the Deluxe versions of EX3 for the traditional printer. The Ex3 Screen as well as the Backer Charm book that was a Reward and an Add-on are with the new White Wolf Publishing for their approval.

As soon as we get the OK from them for the Backer Charm book PDF, we'll get that out to those who backed that Reward Tier, and then I'll go through each pledge level individually and send links to the many folks who added that PDF on to their pledges. It's a multi-day process, so bear with me. :)

The Canvas Maps are ready to go to their printer, and the Charm Cards and Chibi Bookmarks are being prepared. The Music Suites continue to be composed.
