YOU Are The Exalted!
WOW. Just wow!
On behalf of the entire Creative Team: John, Holden, Geoff, Maria, Ian, all the writers and artists, and myself, please let me tender our most awestruck and exhausted THANKS! We had the most stressed-out and exhilarating and fantastic time and we hope all of you did too!
From here on in, each and every one of you can represent for the most dedicated, opinionated, fanatical, expressive, and just plain awesome fans in the world. Exalted Fans! If anybody ever questions it- you just point them right here to this Kickstarter!
So What's Next?
For the Deluxe EX3 Kickstarter project, the next couple of weeks will be spent waiting for word from Amazon Payments that the amounts have cleared. Once you are cleared, that opens up contact info so we can put together our Kickstarter Survey. We won't necessarily get that out to you immediately after the OK from Amazon is given, but we will as soon as we can. We will however, start providing regular Updates as to the progress of everything once those couple of weeks pass, so you will be made aware of each stage of the KS's progress.
For the team- I think a few weeks of the regular backbreaking work we normally do will actually feel like light dusting after this month. So...maybe...a few days off wouldn't be out of order. :)
And now, for the last time and as a list of the astounding things YOU did, the Deluxe Exalted 3rd Edition Kickstarter...
- We passed our Project Goal in 18 Minutes...fully funded in 18 minutes!
- We have raised over 1100% of that Project Goal.
- The Deluxe Exalted 3rd Edition Kickstarter IS the #1 highest backed tabletop RPG KS and Onyx Path's highest funded KS evah!
- 4368 wonderful Backers- thanks to all of you folks for supporting us!
- 282 crazed Backers for the Orichalcum Ultra-Deluxe EX3 Edition:we ARE going to print this gorgeous thing!
- Your pledges have passed 27 Stretch Goals, which give you as backers the the EX3 Comic with special Full Page art, Anathema Character Toolkit, a new EX3 Novel written by Jess Hartley and featuring our sig character Novia, a new EX3 Novel written by Matt Forbeck, a set of 5 Chibi-style Bookmarks by Mel Uran, a recording of John and Holden expounding on their plans and dreams for the future of Exalted, an EX3 Retrospective PDF book, a Ready Made Characters PDF, EX3 Quickstart, the EX3 Music Suite- parts 1 and 2, the EX3 Fiction Anthology, an Infernals and an Abyssals Preview, a set of Charm Cards, and the option to pledge for both the EX3 Storytellers' Screen and the Ex3 Cloth Map. You have increased the book's art budget, Sorcery and Martial Arts sections, and added three silk ribbon bookmarks and gold foil lettering on the spine so it'll look even sweeter, made sure that the next two books are in glorious color, and you gave the creative team two much appreciated pay bumps, and have enabled us to bring John and Holden to GenCon to represent for Exalted.
- Previews: the Dragon-Blooded, Infernal, Abyssal and the Liminal Exalted preview PDFs and the Developer Recording are all live and the feedback has been greatly appreciated by the Devs.
