Pre-Shipping Update #1 - Surveys and Lockdowns!

Posted by Richard Thomas (Creator)

Hello Excellent Cats:

RichT here, and I'm going to crib the format established by our excellent Kickstarter Concierge, Jammin' James Bell, as you can see below:

Looking back at our initial campaign, we had the estimated delivery for the Monarchies of Mau hardcover book set to May 2019. As we talked about at the time, we had built in room for any issues or problems that would come up, and hoped to actually deliver sooner.

Well, we'll probably be sooner. Like, around half a year, is what I'm thinking. Because we're still in 2018 and I'm getting ready to start locking in information in anticipation of shipping in November.


It's very important that everyone review 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 OCTOBER 4th, 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 OCTOBER 18th, 2018. In four weeks time, I will instruct BackerKit to lock down all outstanding payments.

3. CONFIRM SHIPPING INFORMATION - Please ensure your shipping information is up-to-date with your expected address for November 2018. Please ensure that this information is entered and correct by NOVEMBER 1st, 2018. In six weeks time, I will take the shipping information we have for you in BackerKit and provide that to our fulfillment partners.


Consider this the six week 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 November 1, 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 rewards).


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 November 1st and the date I send out the shipping update, contact me to see what I can do at that time.


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 You can also access your available DOWNLOADS from your BackerKit page, so you can check those.

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 your digital downloads or other aspects of the project, please let me know via the CONTACT ME button under the creator link on the main page.

As always we'll be sending out our regular month-end Realms of Pugmire update with progress on all rewards noted, as well as a reminder about BackerKit information lock down dates.

Until then, continue to knock things off tables, you fine felines!

      I would love to give this to my son for Christmas (he is a big fan of cats). What is the likely hood of having this in Canada before then?

      @Andy The T-shirt discount was already run.

      One question: I see a t-shirt discount in backerkit. Is this something for later, or can we already order the T?

      Be careful with the optimism...but, hey, an early fulfillment is better than a late one. Lesson from Wraith and Exalted 3rd are obviously being learned!

      Hell yeah! Good on you guys.
