- We are locking down the orders on 31 July 2018. This is your last chance to add anything to your order.
- Fulfilment is in the process of being finalised, further details for follow.- Legends Untold is now in distribution in the UK!- To make it simpler for everyone I have included responses to the last few updates below:
Hi guys - OK here we go:
Proofing of Sewers set and Boosters content is underway. We are finding minor things which you can notice more easily with a hard copy proofing. To give you an idea of the things that were found on the Caves Set.
P6 of the Rule Book - To maintain consistency with the entries on pp 4 and 5, the subtext for the "3 Plot Cards" and "4 Dice" should start in lower case rather than with a capital letter.
To get everyone up to speed we are trying to deliver a plastic insert rather than a card one which will give you far better storage for your cards:
V1 of the new insert looked like this:
It worked perfectly for non sleeved cards. However when we sleeved the cards they could not all fit in the box, there was not enough depth to cope with the sleeved cards.
A revised layout to the insert was proposed as such:
I received a photograph of V2 from China last week which accommodated all the cards by length and width but required further depth to be added to accommodate the sleeved cards. You can see the V2 here:
PLEASE NOTE THE CARDS ON THE LEFT WITH THE LIGHTNING BOLTS ARE NOT FOR LEGENDS UNTOLD, THEY WERE SIMPLY TO HAND FOR THE MANUFACTURER TO TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH.
With the spacing now sorted I asked for a further 6mm of depth to accommodate the sleeved single pokers and 12mm of depth to accommodate the sleeved double pokers giving an increased insert and box depth of 18mm.
Here is the photograph of V3 which I received this morning - you can see that everything fits well and should also handle the depth of the sleeved cards. Note the box is white as it is a prototype to accommodate the increased depth.
Please note these are quick photographs take by Whatz, they have not been placed in a lightbox or anything like that:
The next step is to receive a hard copy proof of the V3 inserts and printed boxes with the artwork for Caves and Sewers (these are being sent to China over the next day or so - please note the change to the box will be negligible but it needs to be checked).
When I receive these I can (hopefully) confirm that everything looks good and fits on a sleeved basis. We can then proceed to push the button on manufacturing.
Address and Order Lock down on 31 July.Please note we are now finally at the stage where we are locking down addresses and orders. If you want any address changes or anything added to your order please get in touch with us immediately.
We are coming to the end of our discussions on this point, we will be announcing our fulfilment partner shortly. Getting the finalised addresses is essential to closing this out.
I am very pleased to confirm that Legends Untold is now on the stock list with Asmodee UK. Only a very small number of indy publishers get into distribution with their debut title, we are delighted to have achieved this and look forward to seeing our game in retailers across the UK. We are in discussions with other distributors across the globe and I hope to have more news on this front in due course.
Responses to comments from previous updates (to avoid lots of searching)
Justin Boehm @IG so... how would this giant mat and miniatures work if you wanted to use them with LU? I mean, you move as a group right (or maybe I'm remembering wrong)? Is it something where the location cards would fit on the squares shown on the mat image?
No sorry those mats are basically used if you wanted to 'supersize' your own game of Legends to make the particular room larger or if you wanted to use them for your own RPG or skirmish game. Yes you are correct you move as a group in Legends.
Korric Morgan - Just please retain a focus on short playtime and portability. etc. Understood and agreed. Legends is meant to fill that niche - you want more than a combat oriented dungeon crawler but don’t have time for a full pen and paper RPG. Anything we produce for future expansions will be true to this design ethos.
Bellisarius - Sorry if i missed it but are the A3 game mats available for download or purchase as a file? At that size they are ideal to print and play with. Not at the moment sorry. We are still debating what direction we would go with the game mats, for now our focus is getting the game to everyone - thanks for the interest though!
God-keizer - Please post a picture of the box inside with the tokens punched out, how does it look when organized, how is it's usability? Can you easily take the game components out? Is stuff easy to find? Time the set-up time. How long is the tear down and tuck away time and effort? What parts are more prone to wear and tear? What needs reinforcing? I have covered this off via the new insert.
TheSirSpence (is killing me) - I don't suppose that there is any chance the PM could be reopened. I missed it first time round and I get more and more gutted that u am not getting a game with every update. Yes no problem - please message me with what you want and I will add it for you .
Paul Johnson - The insert looks great. I really appreciate the effort you're putting into the game. One question about your new proposal to stack the double size cards on top of the insert and increase the depth of the box though. Won't everything start sliding around and falling out the insert if it's stored on it's side? Normally you can fix this by storing the used punch boards under the insert to raise the level flush with the box lid. But I can't see that working here. Is this something you've already considered / tested? This is a totally valid question Paul. Unsleeved and using the original design I checked this several times and it was not an issue. Using the new design I won’t be able to tell you how much of an issue it is until I have the Insert in my hands with all the tokens. This is definitely the challenge trying to accommodate sleeved, partially sleeved and unsleeved preferences in a small box. I will update you when I know more but there really is nowhere else to store the cards on a sleeved basis.
Fredrik Fregginia - What is the size of the Perceival Guard 83 or 85 by 127mm? Neither, it is an Ultimate Guard sleeve 89x127mm
Can the Mayday Games Tiny Epic Kingdom Sleeves fit the card instead? They are listed as 88x125mm. I think they are likely to be thin (the Ultimate Guard ones are snug) and would be not be long enough - the Ultimate Guard sleeves are too short by a fraction of a mm.
Matthew Guillemette - This is looking really amazing, thanks for all the extra effort for us "Compulsive Sleevers!" I just hope that when your next campaign comes out, you give us the option to grab the other Novice set that we didn't get... I was only able to go in for the Caves set initially, because of the cost conversion between british pounds and Canadian. I expect to go all in on the next campaign...
Thank you! We are still deciding what to do next, after some head bashing we may have a new change of direction from our last stated position. We are still looking at it (working title Project Cornwall) just now, but think our plans may be more in line with what you guys would like to see. In the meantime - if you want to add the Sewers just now please message me ASAP and I can add it for you if that is your wish.
David Purkiss Is it still possible to get the dice? Yes, please message me and let me know how many sets and I can do this for you now before I close out the final order.
J.O. These are some nice fitting sleeves. How many of them do we need for each set?
For Caves and Sewers you need 33 double poker and 123 single poker sleeves.
Please also note we added in the UKGE Bonus Promo adventure too which is 5 double poker and 3 poker sleeves.
For each Booster you need 2 double poker and 11 single poker sleeves.
Steelbeard issue with the sleeve fitting the card? Specifically, the photo of the Student card in the sleeve does not look as though it fits. There appears to be no clearance at the top of the sleeve, and the card looks like it's poking out to me. We do not manufacture the sleeves. After looking around for a suitable sleeve size these were the ones I was able to source. The double poker cards sit less than 1mm outside the sleeve at the open edge of this particular brand. The insert can accommodate this and more.
OK folks that is it for just now. I will let you know when I have V3 of the insert so we can try it all out. In the meantime please note what I was saying about lockdown.
Best wishes to you all from IG.
