Thanks for the update, much prefer honesty and clarity to the silence that I've seen in other kickstarters which have had delays. Like Mark, I would also be interested in amending my deliveries (and would be happy to pay more) so I can at least get the core book rather than waiting for the the waves. Have a good Christmas.
Appreciate the update.
@clockwork: no problems, will wait to hear from you.
I hope Angus gets through his troubles.
Clockwork, thanks for picking up the slack. Good luck getting this completed.
Just a short update: As of this minute we have access to backerkit and will try to get all information we need in the next couple of days - first we have to get familiar with the service. We already sent out reminders to those 75 backers who have not yet filled out their surveys. Everybody else should be fine, as far as we can see for now. We will contact you guys if we need anything more.
Nice to have some solid information at last ..... I'm glad you're finally taking control, and hope that this project can now move forward to the benefit of all. The past is best left in the past.
We all know that in a project with so many moving parts, you're bound to have delays. Thank you for the honest update.
It is a shame to hear you've had some troubles with the project, but thanks for sticking with it. All the best with putting this thing to bed and Merry Christmas!
Thanks for the update. I'm sorry this happened, but still confident in the project.
Thank you -for the information...the commitment and for being honest :)
Thanks for the clarifying the position and taking steps to get this show back on the road.
Kickstarters can be eventful and/or late (and/or defunct, but I have escaped any of those so far!), but it is good to know that this is one is still making progress.
I am really looking forward to these books, and I hope this property continues to flourish (in all supported languages).
I hope things come right for Angus too.
Also very grateful for update. Clearly Angus is having a difficult time, and it's really good of you to step in and help out.
@ Clockwork Thanks for the update and I am glad to hear you have a solid plan in place.
@Mark: Please wait with sending any money for extra delivery, until we sort out everything with the new distribution partners. We will inform everybody of the exact schedule as soon as we know it and will also deal with change of delivery plans on the side of you backers then. :)
Thanks for the update - it sounds like you have things well under control.
So, will there be three waves of delivery in total? I think that I originally asked for everything to be sent in one group, but now I think that it might be better to have separate deliveries (I'm in the UK). So if there are three waves, would I have to send another £10 (£5 x 2) for the extra deliveries?
Thanks for the kind and understanding words, everybody! This is really motivating. :)
@Kjetil: The leatherbound version is printed half way, so to say. The interior part of the book is done (which is, of course the same as for the normal version). We are now getting the faux leahter and real leather covers done and the special endpapers printed for the real leather versions. Then the books will be bound.
We hope this will be all done by the mid of January, but because of Christmas, there might be some (small) delays with that again.
Thank you for the detailed update. It is a shame to hear things haven't worked out with Chronicle but I think all the backers will appreciate hearing your plans to ensure this project moves forward.
Thank you for a very honest update.
Ditto...it's always tough when partnerships don't work as expected, for both sides.
But it sounds like you have a plan of attack and are moving the project forward. That's good to hear.
I'm definitely not going anywhere and still anxious for the product when all gets sorted out.
In the meantime, everyone have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Is this in regards to the full leather edition. It is also printed? I backed for it and a standard edition.
Good to now it is still being moved forward.
Very sad to hear that Sarah will not be writing the adventure since that was the one I looked forward to the most. But hey. It is a kickstarter and shit happens.
It's a shame to see the business partnership dissolved as a result of this, but I'm very glad to hear an update on the project that explains the delays at last.
I look forward to hearing who will be taking over warehousing and distribution for you, and extend my well-wishes for a smooth ride from here on out. It's a shame about some of the stretch goals, but I understand about those as well.
For now, viel Glück!
