Our pricing is reflective of, or about, what our MSRP will be after we have completely fulfilled the Kickstarter. Each of the backers will actually receive a slight discount off MSRP for backing this project. We have accounted for this discount in our totals and costs. This pricing also allows us to introduce wholesale and distribution pricing to ensure the terrain can get into as many hands as possible after successful fulfillment of this project.
We want to continue bringing our products to the world, not just part of it and in support of that, our Kickstarter is open to all those that would want to back us. We have figured out the weights associated with our products ahead of time and you will be charged shipping accordingly. Due to prior experiences where shipping can hurt a Kickstarter, we will err on the side of caution and round shipping costs up; however, we will refund any shipping overages via Paypal when the actual costs are calculated. We do not want to make any money on the shipping costs, nor do we want to be buried in the costs of shipping. For US residence (any state), we will include any applicable sales tax; however, countries outside the US, please keep in mind any tariffs or VATs you may need to pay on inbound products.
For this project, we put special consideration into the timing and have come up with a plan that we hope to be sufficient to meet or exceed expectations. With the exception of circumstances outside outside our control, the molding, manufacturing, production, painting, packaging, and shipping are within our control. All of the pieces are made within the US with US material sources and labor within our own manufacturing facility under our supervision. That being said, we have estimated the amount of time we need based on ramp up and labor capacity, which scales with the project final numbers. Therefore our project will be broken into two distinct parts, initial ramp up and production fulfillment.
- The initial ramp up will begin immediately following the conclusion of the Kickstarter where we will create the molds necessary to begin production on the first wave of the Kickstarter. This will be 15 weeks, during which time, we will be creating the molds, securing labor, production, and storage facilities and purchasing the raw materials necessary to fulfill the pledges.
- The production fulfillment will begin immediately following the ramp up period and will continue until all pledges have been fulfilled. The pledges will be fulfilled based on the wave in which you pledged. As the project progresses, we will post updates along with approximate dates associated with each wave so you will understand where your pledge falls in the timeline.
- During production, we will continue to create molds necessary for additional fulfillments and duplicates to speed production, in other words we may actually get faster as we go, just don’t quote us on that. We are; however, about 80% confident on our scheduling, which means ramp up can be anywhere from 13 weeks on the low end to 18 weeks on the high end. As we get comfortable with all the arrangements, we will be able to raise the confidence level.
This is our project, simply stated, and we are asking you to help support our process of expanding and growing Legendary Realms Terrain from where we are today to a terrain company that can continue to provide new and exciting terrain to better your gaming experience. We want to bring you new terrain and we have a long list of terrain that we want to create. The Ice Cavern project is the first of what we hope will be many more to come. As with all our endeavors, our success can only be realized through your support and I want to thank you in advance for backing and confidence in us.
Ice Cavern Project Description Over the past few years we, as a company, have been working on learning the intricacies of our processes and what it takes to bring our products to life from the beginnings of an idea to the detail painting and packaging. Now that we have a better understanding of each aspect of our process and we are comfortable with our ability to produce and fulfill, we are ready to move forward to bring more accessories and terrain pieces to your game. We have been cautious and tentative, moving forward slowly, to ensure that our processes are in place and now we are ready to introduce our new line of terrain accessories and Ice Terrain for our first new venture as we look to expand our product line and bring your games to life!
Our new project is looking to introduce two new lines of terrain to our existing product list, Accessories and Ice Terrain. As always, our main focus is to bring new accessories to the market to allow you to bring your game to life, regardless of your tabletop. Our accessories can be used with your existing 3D terrain or even with your current graph paper and markers to give your game depth and enhance game play. Who knows what your players will think of when they “see” the fountain or statue in the room. In addition to our accessories, we have a long list of new terrain lines to bring to market, the first of which is our Ice Terrain. Our Ice Terrain will bring your imagination to a new world and set your players into the cold reaches that have only been spoken about with awe in passing. Now you can go. This project will also introduce accessories to be cast in Ice to enhance the terrain.
This project will help us acquire the start up costs associated with bringing these new terrain pieces to the market efficiently. The accessories are completely new and custom sculpted specifically for Legendary Realms Terrain by our sculptor friend Colin Wessel. The new Ice Terrain will be a combination of custom sculpts and Hirst Arts pieces, as we continue to expand our partnership with Hirst Arts.
The initial products being offered in this project will include the first Ice Terrain themed room, a set of five Ice Accessories, and a set of five non-ice accessories. Having learned from past experiences, we are limiting our initial offerings to focus on the goal of bringing product to the market for you. However, this does not mean we did not think ahead. Instead, we have lined up many more accessory add-ons that can be purchased and will be revealed at every $25k mark. If you help us hit those marks, we will bring more accessories to market. Oh and don’t worry, it will be very difficult to make us run out of new accessories, we have been accumulating potential new products for the last two years…
The design of this project has put us in a position to be efficient without putting a strain on the individuals involved or undue stress on you, the backers of this project. We have carefully considered our pricing, costs, shipping, and timing for this project to ensure that we will be successful in delivering our promises to you.
Costs: The costs involved with this project include the costs of material and labor so that we, as a company, can continue to produce our existing terrain accessories without compromising fulfillment of this Kickstarter. Our costs also include the one-time fees associated with creating molds, storage facility of molds, expanding our current workspace to accommodate the larger line of products. Finally, we have accounted for and calculated the costs so that the costs will scale with the hopeful success of the project. This means if we need to maintain a larger workforce, create more molds, move to a larger production facility, secure more material, or order more header tags, we will not be caught off guard with the additional expense. We have even included a catch all miscellaneous expense that also scales with the project, just in case we missed something. We are not perfect but we did try to account for whatever we may need.
Risks and challenges
Success is a risk and a challenge. Although we want this to be as successful as possible, our planning is not unlimited and it is possible that an overly successful project will challenge our preparedness. We have thought of this possibility and would readily accept this challenge. However, this challenge poses risks in the form of shipping delays. Since Kickstarter is generally an open ended success model, we have done our best at determining the time frame of delivery based on reaching our goal projection. In addition, we have planned for success up to 10x our goal projection. Anything beyond that we will attempt to make up time with additional labor but there is a limit we can increase labor within the physical constraints of our facility. Due to physical constraints as well as the unknown factor of each individual’s pledge level, upon successful conclusion of this Kickstarter, we will re-project all timelines and communicate to everyone. We will attempt to hold to our original promise if we can meet the demand with labor, if not, we will communicate an updated timeline of deliveries for everyone. We may even give some people options of splitting up an order, where feasible.
As soon as the Kickstarter ends, we will place our order for materials; however, due to the relatively short shelf-life of some of our materials, we cannot take delivery until we are very close to using the material. This can lead to potential out of stock situations when we need material, which can cause delays. Since raw materials are not directly within our control, the only way to mitigate this risk is to ensure we order on time and communicate to you of any delays.
Depending on the success of the Kickstarter, we have budgeted for additional labor. We cannot begin hiring this additional labor until after the Kickstarter ends, which leaves us about eight weeks to post ads, interview, and train new employees. We feel confident that the allotted time is sufficient; however, any delays in hiring or training employees may lead to delivery delays.
In addition, there is a risk that employees may quit in the middle of production. This may also cause delays in production and delivery times.
To address these risks, we do have some time for unexpected occurrences within our schedule but not so much that we could go without employees. In either case, we will communicate any such issues to you immediately, along with an assessment on potential issues due to the issues.
Communication is always a challenge. Everyone goes into a project like this with the expectation that they will communicate appropriately and timely to all the backers but sometimes expectations, intentions, and hopes fall short. We recognize this as a potential risk due to the timeline necessary to produce and ship our product. To help mitigate this risk we want to take two approaches. First, we will assign a project manager after the project is successful. This project manager will be responsible to communicate statuses on a weekly and/or frequent basis as necessary, even if it is to say that we are currently on schedule. The other approach to maintaining communication is you. We want to state it here so you understand that communication does not have to come from us to you. Instead, you have the power at any time to reach out to us and ask us what is going on. Our project manager, along with all of us have the ability to monitor the message board and the emails associated with this project and we have set up weekly status meetings to capture these call outs.
5) Shipping Costs
The ability to track shipping costs accurately, separate from pledges will be a challenge. Shipping costs are a necessary evil of our product and, due to the weight, shipping can become expensive. So as to not repeat mistakes of the past and lose money on shipping, we have attempted to calculate the most accurate shipping costs for the pledges and the add-ons. We want to make it clear, we are not looking to make any money on your shipping costs and we will track pledge money separate from shipping money. If we can ship your package cheaper, without compromising the integrity of your package, we will refund your over payment of shipping charges back to you, via Paypal.
