Have a question?
Taking time to develop things for a Kickstarter is fine. That's the whole reason why Kickstarter exists - to pay for the development of something. That takes whatever time it takes. I'm just thinking about the financial impact to you of multiple shipments. That's part of why I asked in the beginning of the campaign if you were asking for enough for the pledges. I really thought you weren't giving yourself enough of a budget to do everything you wanted to. No one wants, or should expect, you to go into the red for a project.
You're absolutely right but if I ever do another Kickstarter everything will be ready before the beginning of the campaign.
@Daniel if you do another Kickstarter, may I suggest that if it is one with physical things to deliver that you wait until everything is done and send it all in a single shipment. I think that would save us and you a lot of confusion. Not to mention saving you a lot of money on shipping! At this point I have to imagine that you have lost a good deal of money on this project.
Although I'm no longer in charge of shipping, I can tell you that GM Screen deliveries have started. I will publish an update when I return.
Any updates? Did you get any help for translating the module? How is GM screen going? Do we have estimated time for final product to be shipped? End of year maybe?
Hi. I will publish a new update today or tomorrow.
Please give us an update on the overall status.
Is it possible to get everything so far as a single zip downloadable? Thanks!
I just answered you with a private message.
Hey Daniel. I'm having trouble getting into the server to get my rewards. It won't authenticate. I don't know if I've forgotten something, or if my password need to be reset, or what. Help!
Daniel. Please can you give us an update on the project as a whole. What’s missing etc.
I haven’t seen a message either.
You missed me because your last message have been: "10.2.2018"
Nothing since then (from "Valley of Kildar | For 5th Edition and other RPG games")
So can you send that message again, please?
Should we have received our physical copies at this point? I have not gotten mine.
During the last week I sent to each backer an update as a private message. This more personal method allows me at the same time to recheck all addresses for the next shipment.
Sorry, I just forgot to send you one. I send it to you right away.
This update also contains the new bonuses download links.
Over a year late and if I was pessimistic, based on comments about other KS's, I'd say we're starting to see the "I bit of more than I can chew, so how do I get out of this" situation. It does appear to be following the standard pattern of events/behaviours now
Still have not received any package whatsoever.....
I'll be back next week with an update, new stuff and more bonuses.
About time for an update, please.
And still nothing for the UK
First package just arrived here in Finland!
One year passed since estimated delivery date...
Glad to hear you are getting better. I promise that as soon as I get either first package or full printed version of game module I will write here so rest of you will know it have arrived. I do so because this far I have been trying to see message here from backers if they have got they mail or not. (And naturally most who get they package do not write anything and some even forget they have backed this one so...)
Anyway, really waiting to get this module!
Thank you Stark.
I restart shipments last week. I will contact you directly on Monday or Tuesday to follow up with you.
Hi Daniel. Sorry to hear that you have been ill. Any idea of when you will be mailing out the physical copies? Hope your health continues to improve.
Hi everyone. Sorry if you have not heard from me since my last update but I have been pretty sick in the last 3 weeks. Now I'm fine and I have quests and 2 bonuses to send you. I should do this in the next few days. Thanks.
I have not yet get any package. How are things going on there? Should I soon get something in post?
I'll do an update next week and I think I'll be able to send you the first complete quests.
Also I bought a forest tiles set from my illustrator. I'll send it to you next week.
Can you please send an update and explain what is done and what is needed to complete this Kickstarter project.
I appreciate all the links you are sending me/us but as you mentioned in a PM to me a link to cover all will be provided.
I am patient but I need to know how things are going on your end please.
Hi. I'm still waiting for the translation of the quests texts. I'm supposed to receive a part of it this week.
Is there anything new for pdf backers? Some kind of complete download or anything else cause of shipping the print rewards
The first package contains all the black and white battlemaps, the bestiary sheets and the paper miniatures. The second package will contain all the other things.
I should have but I did not contact everyone before reshipping.
Yes I think your package was in those that have been reshipped.
Just a small follow-up on my last update, I sent my texts in translation and I should soon receive the first translated texts.
@Daniel what should we have received so far? I have received one envelope with a flat square packet with some maps and standees. Should we have received anything else?
For the packages that were returned, are you contacting the backers before reshipping or just popping them back into the post?
The basic question is what should have already been received / shipped and am I among those whose package was returned.
Yes it's French to English. OK I will publish all the NPCs texts even if I think that my translation is not good enough. I really appreciate. Thank you.
You are translating from French to English? I am Québécois, born in Montreal and grew up in the Rive Sud. Don’t try and make the translation perfect. Release a pdf and your backers will help.
I have start last week to send back all the return packages. I have about fifteen returned packages to reship but this time I ship them all by plane and not by boat. So we're talking about 2 to 3 weeks and not months. Your package is not in the returns but since you have not received anything yet I'll send you a new one.
For the second package is a friend of mine who will take care of it because he is much more competent than me in shipping. I will ask him for a "kind" of tracking system on shipping because regular tracking number is too expensive.
I will finish the translation of the last 2 NPCs this weekend. For other texts that are not yet translated, I will hire a translator otherwise it will not be completed before 6 months! My translation technique is far too slow. I use dictionaries and books.
I am bit worried for that "it can take 5 to 10 week for post to deliver" part. I mean if you manage to send it for us in X-mas. So it mean for me that in worst case I first wait for first corter of 2018, then send you message around 1.3.2018 and you reply telling that you have gotten back quite many package.. ..and will soon contact us to asking if we get it or not.
It would really help if we would get somekind of code to check our delivery.. like right now I have no idea if you have send my package again for me or not. Atleast I have not get your contact for if I get my first package or not so I guess that survey is still under production?
I just finished the complete translation of the 15th NPC on 22. I'm finishing the last 7 and I'll give you a clear answer.
When can the PDF backers expect their complete reward?
I understand your skepticism about my project and the delay of more than 6 months but the writing took me too much time and the translation even more (I'm still translating the NPCs personality). Not to mention that I changed many things and maybe added too much details.
Despite this huge delay I'm pretty sure that when you will have everything in your hands you will not be disappointed.
Being brutally honest I've effectively given up on receiving this project at all and am quite disappointed as it was going to be a gift for someone who is, or rather was quite heavily into D&D.
I haven't received anything Physical yet either
Yes I have to check all shipments because I had a lot of returns of parcels for various reasons. I will have to contact you one by one to find out what you have received or not.
I have not get anything yet either. But he let me know that it can take around 5-10 weeks to get. So I am waiting still.. ..but I fear that I can not get my module for X-mas but hopefully before next summer.
Edit: actually on on September 19 it was over 4 week since he post it. I wonder how long it really can take???
@Daniel should I have received anything physical by now? A while back you said that you were shipping things but nothing has gotten to me yet.
I understand your dissatisfaction very well and I am really sorry.
I have not yet published the NPC texts because I decided to add an additional feature: the personality.
It's only 2 or 3 additional lines of text per NPC but it gives more depth to the characters.
Honestly the worst experience of backing a kickstarter thus far.
I finished the NPCs and I will publish the texts through a news this time, because I would like to have your opinion before completing the final pdf.
I will be on vacation from my regular work from October 13th to October 23rd. I will take this time off to finish the NPCs and Quests booklets.
