Best News, Great News, Good News
Survey (best news)
Lets start out with the best news – the surveys will be sent out shortly – likely by the time you read this you may already have it! I apologize for the delay, but there was a lot of back and forth with BackerKit ensuring that you received the best possible survey, which accounts for all the add-ons, and your needs. If you have any questions or problems with the survey, please send me a message.
You will not need to create a BackerKit account to answer your survey. The invitation email will contain a link to your personal survey. It is important to submit your responses as quickly as you can since we need this information to process your rewards.
If you need to change your survey responses, add or remove add-ons, or update your shipping information, you can click on the link in your survey email again or request your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page.
If you prefer, you can just message me and give me your information, but answering your survey will help us get your rewards out to you quicker. BackerKit helps us save lots of time by streamlining the survey process, automating data organization, and providing us with pledge management software to make it easy to process your pledge reward shipments.
If you used Facebook to log into your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey link will be sent to the email you used for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you'd prefer to use, please message me.
Due to the number of model options you can choose from when creating your Warband, the survey is extensive. Technically, for a 10-point Warband, you could have as few as 4 models but as many as 10 so we had to ask 10 question for each 10 points (i.e. 20 questions for a 20 point or two 10-points Warbands).
After the results come in I will have to check each one by hand to ensure they equal the correct amount of points. There are no pre-made options in the survey. If you would like one of the premade Warbands, just enter in the models you’d like.
Please remember, the points of the models do not equate to their points in play.
A typical game of Parallax is about 250 points. Sample costs of the personality models are:
- Minotaur: 60 points
- Hadjen: 50 points
- Cayad: 40 points
- Sicarius: 45 points
- Devoid: 30 points
- Tir: 25 points
You can order your 10-points however you’d like but I thought you should know the game mechanics before you choose.
Free stuff (great news)
When I was working on the survey and what you get when we fulfill I was unhappy with a choice I made. For the two-player starter we were only providing one deck of character cards, with the idea you share or buy more if you want another set. The decision was made for a lot of good reasons, but still disappointing. To remedy that, everyone that has backed for a two-player will be getting two decks of character cards.
If you are a domestic backer, you will also no longer pay shipping if you chose the $1 option. The $5 you paid will be given to you as a credit to be applied for add-ons.
International will still need to pay for shipping to help defuse the cost of shipping. However, if you are only getting a digital add-on, the $15 will be applied as a credit. Please send me a message if you are international and only want the digital rewards as I will have to manually fix your pledge.
Schedule (good news)
We had originally said we would deliver the product in March of 2017. The reasoning behind this was a lot more play testing, getting the rules printed, models made, shipping…
I honestly don’t think this is the case anymore. Because we aren’t worrying about a printed book, for the moment, and if we can get play testing done by October. The goal is to get everything out and done much earlier. I know this goes against the normal Kickstarter rules of promise early and deliver late, but I want to get this into your hands.
Worst case scenario is you get the models early and we deliver the final version of the PDF a little later, with a solid beta version ready for you to play when you get the models.
Thank you again for being a backer.
