December EX3 Update

21 likes

Hello Ex3 backers!

RichT here:

We continue the process of having the page edges gilded gold, and if something can happen to slow this down, it seems it will. A second printer brought on their machine, which broke down. A new machine was arranged for. Now we expect gilding to be finished early January.

The EX3 Screen and Chibi bookmarks are done and waiting to ship with the main book. The EX3 canvas map should be finished and waiting to ship with the book.

The printer was able to do a test binding of a handful of those books already finished so that we'd have no surprises in the bindery, and so I finally got to approve a finished bound version of the Deluxe. The Ultra-Deluxe is a different bindery, so will come later.

All of these pics are a tad bit yellow, the actual EX3 Deluxe cover is a light creme color, like a warm white.

Hello Ex3 backers!

RichT here:

We continue the process of having the page edges gilded gold, and I'm told we are nearing the end finally. (FYI, while this gilding has taken a long time, it has not taken as long as the unique copper gilding for Werewolf 20th.) In this case, it was the sheer number of EX3 books that required the gilding taking longer than expected, even with the extra shifts the gilder pulled in to help. Everything else is ready for binding, so we just need the gilding to get done and dried.

EX3 October Update!

Hello Ex3 backers!

RichT here:

Right now, the compiled interior sections, called book blocks and at the size of EX3 they truly are blocks, continue the process of having their edges gilded gold. We are several weeks into that and expect it to take several more to get through the number of books we have printed for EX3. Everything else is ready for binding, so we just need the gilding to get done.

Here's a pic of all the un-combined parts for both the regular and super deluxe editions. Since these are sections, the map endpapers are not part of the covers yet:

And finally, the Ex3 Charm Cards final PDF and physical PoD card sets are ready to go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, Nov 2 at DriveThruCards.com. Thanks to all of you who wrote in with your comments on the backer PDF!

The PoD sets, like everything Exalted, are huge, and we even had to break the full set into three sections for every single Charm from the main book. That makes it really expensive to get all the charms. To ease that somewhat, we are also offering the PoD sets broken out by Charm. Since these cards are a great way to keep track of your Charms, and even create a Charm Tree with, we hope the way we broke out the sets lends itself to being useful and fun at the table.

Thanks!

Right now, the compiled interior sections, called book blocks and at the size of EX3 they truly are blocks, are in the process of having their edges gilded gold. We are several weeks into that and expect it to take several more to get through the number of books we have printed for EX3. I have seen and approved the Ultra Deluxe cover's metal plate and it is being manufactured now.

When I have a sample copy of the assembled Ultra Deluxe cover (and the regular Deluxe cover too) I will post some pics for you.

The EX3 Screen is done and waiting to ship with the main book.

Also shipping with the main book are the Chibi bookmarks, which we are sending to press next month as they are fast to print, cut, and bundle together.

Finally, the EX3 canvas map is halfway done printing and cutting at its manufacturer.

A note about the Novia novel:  unfortunately, our announced author, Jess Hartley, had to regretfully bow out of the project due to personal issues, but we have another author, whom we think long time Exalted fans will like, good to step up and write it. I'll let you know who they are once the contracts are all signed and all.

Thanks!

EX3 Charm Cards PDF links sent out!

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!
