48 Hours To Change Shipping Addresses!

14 likes

Hello EX3 Backers!

RichT here:

I just set the 48 hour notice until all Backer Survey responses are locked. After that, you will not be able to change your shipping address, and run the risk of missing your long-awaited rewards. None of us wants that!

Here's the info on finding where to make the changes, as per the main Kickstarter FAQ:

How can I view or change my survey responses?

If you’ve already submitted your backer survey, you can review your response by visiting the project page and clicking the 'View Pledge' button next to the project image. One quick way to view project pages is to check Backed Projects on your account.

If the creator of this project has enabled address changes, you’ll notice an option at the top of this modal (under the Survey tab) that will allow you to edit your shipping information. If the creator has not enabled address changes, or you’d like to modify your responses to any other questions on this survey, reach out to the project creator directly to request your changes.

Even if you're pretty sure your shipping address is correct, please double-check in the next 48 hours. I have had backers look multiple times and not until their package was mis-delivered did they notice they'd transposed two of the numbers in their street address. If we send to a bad address you provide, that means we've fulfilled the KS reward, and while we will try and figure out a solution with you, that's in no way guaranteed. Like I said above, we really would hate to have anybody not get their rewards.

At this point, figure on all rewards being on their way in two weeks to a month from now, and arriving based on your location around the world anywhere between a few days after shipping to several weeks.

Thanks!

First Exalted 3rd Update for 2017

Hello EX3 backers!

RichT here:

First, I want to show you some pictures:

 

Yes, it's actually happening!

These are all the completed books (both kinds of Deluxes) being boxed up and getting ready to ship from the printer to our fulfillment shippers. They are all now in touch, and arranging transport. I'd expect shipping to start late February as the books have to get to them, get checked out, boxed with the Screens, and Maps, and Bookmarks, and labelled.

Which means that what we need to do now is finalize everyone's addresses. In about two weeks you will all get 48 hour warnings from KS that the Surveys will be locked and all changes have to happen before that.

I suggest you try and double-check your shipping info before then (you can get to your Survey response by going to your pledge page through the Ex3 KS page) so that you're not caught missing that 48 hour window. Even if you're sure, please really look at the address listed there. I've had multiple backers over several KSs transpose house numbers and then miss it because they assumed the whole address was correct.

In any case, it's worth it to do so as any changes that we can get the shippers to accept after that time have to be done up by hand, and human error can rear its ugly head.

Thanks!

December EX3 Update

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.

November EX3 Update!

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!
