HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Greetings everyone, 

And a special hello to all of the mothers out there today! The world simply would not exist if it weren't for the ever watchful eye of the MOM and her ceaseless patience and undying love for her children. We rely on you simply to survive this life and that is a debt we can never truly repay, save for passing on the mantle of motherhood. Thank you again for everything you do!
                 
                     
               

Lottery Winners!

We did the KS Live Session yesterday, which you can watch on the Main Campaign Page and see Koda and watch me show off 2-3 of the Ancient Codex Pages. I'll certainly admit it is a lot more stranger of a feeling being in a LIvestream Video versus recording a regular video!

Here is the list of the Lottery Winners:

#1 - Joshua Kaplon
#2 - Simon Hollman
#3 - Kevin Moore
#4 - Donna Bell
#5 - Hung Nguyen
#6 - Martin Scholz
#7 - Brian Munn
#8 - Roxanna Contreras
#9 - Matthew Pull
#10 - Owais Basulouh

We will be reaching out to each one of the winners today or tomorrow to establish contact and their acceptance on getting the Ancient Codex. If anyone decides they don't want it or don't respond within 1 week of our email, then we will draw from the remaining names in the Hat to fill in any dropouts.
                           
                        
                             

Ebay Auctions are Now Live

Ancient Codex Photos

As we mentioned above, Brady actually put together 2-3 pages during the Kickstarter Live Video (no spoilers were shown!) and these pages belonged to a "scrap" Ancient Codex, where we are testing various methods aging and distressing throughout the varied steps of the production line. Here are some more photos of the pages:

This one showed us that anything intended to look metal must have series of cut lines to separate it from the wood texture itself.

That's all for now! Good luck in the Auctions and see you all in the next update!

      You could have spaced them out over several weeks starting one or two a day

      @ Mary - it wasn't but I didn't have a choice due to Ebay's Policies. I'm still a "new" user on Ebay and so I'm limited to 3 day or more auctions.

      I feel like the decision to make all the auctions one day long might not have been ideal

      Hi!
      Unluckily I missed the live-stream! The more awestruck I am now to read my name on the list of the 10 lucky winners - so unbelievable!!!
      Thanks a lot mother Fortuna! And thanks a lot to Coda for his bowl and a huge thank you Bradie for the opportunity to win an ancient codex!!!
      I am really, really humbled!
      Oh! You don’t need to hurry with mine it can wait if you need the time for other codices first!

      Congrats! This is shaping up to be the shot in the arm you were hoping it would. Every auction already has at least a bid!

      Also the regular codices are NOT priced like this :P

      @MW - there are only 30 of these Ancient Codices, it's all explained in the last two updates :)

      Jesus Christ $1200 usd starting bid?

      And the first auction is nearing 2k...

      What happened to that survey a couple months ago about not raising the price?
