Kickstarter: Complete!

Posted by Daniel Alan Burrow (Creator)

I am beyond elated to finally announce, after years of everyone quietly loathing me, that the Tephra Kickstarter is complete!

I want to take a moment to thank all of the numerous people who have been so supportive even when I certainly did not deserve it. It's amazing to me how wonderful so many of you have been. Tephra began as a labor of love, and y'all's love turned it into something more.

I have now shipped out the awards for everyone I've been able to contact. I know that there are still about 50 backers that still have books in transit (including some I shipped just this morning). Please let me know if anything doesn't arrive or you have any problems. I'm happy to help!

I want to share a few links, if you'll allow:

Kickstarter Backers still Waiting: If you are still waiting for a backer gift and you haven't submitted on this form, please do so!  (Also, as far as I am aware, I have fulfilled all $30 domestic backers - if you have not received your Playing Guide and you're in the United States, please let me know.)

Newsletter: If you want to get more updates about Tephra in the future, join our newsletter! Now that Tephra's debts are paid, we're growing faster than ever! Sign up here.

Cracked Monocle's current status: I "unresigned" a few months ago, and my top priority was finishing off this Kickstarter. If you want to read more about Cracked Monocle's journey, check out our blog.

Thank you everyone! You have made Tephra truly wonderful.

Cheers & Gears,

      This is about my favorite kind of Kickstarter, actually. Oh sure, I love the big "preorder" kickstarters that are only running a kickstarter to see if there's enough interest to release their thing fully tricked out with bling. But to me, all those blockbuster projects exist solely so Kickstarter has the funds it needs to run, to allow projects like this one to exist.

      Hi Kairam! I have sent your rewards. Unfortunately, some of the shipping methods aren't trackable, but I will message you your expected delivery date.

      What about us international backers? Haven't got all my rewards yet, have they been sent? Do you have an estimate for delivery or tracking info?
