A huge thank you to the backers!
I wanted to say that this KickStarter did much better than I expected or hoped and I very much want to thank all the great backers who helped make this happen.
Thanks to backer Moraiwe who pledged the exact $32 we needed in the last 20 seconds of the KickStarter to get every backer of GET THE REF or better a free D16.
What happens next?
Well this morning I will go through and message everyone who had a credit card that did not process. We have one week to get those backers fixed so that they are not permanently dropped from the KickStarter.
I also will send Kenny a very long detailed email for him of what all should be in the pledge manager so that he can get that set up. It normally takes Kenny 2 to 4 weeks to completely get all the details of the pledge manager finished. When it is complete we will send out an update the day before to let everyone know to be on the look out for the pledge manager. The pledge manager will allow you to pick what items you wanted for your reward. You can also at that time add on as much extra items as you'd like and the pledge manager will allow you to pay for them through it as well. The pledge manager will not collect addresses only what you want. We always wait and send out the address surveys right before we are ready to ship (although now that KickStarter allows address changes finally ... this is not as big a deal as it used to be).
I spoke with Ed at Trollforged yesterday and he has finished the moulds for 14 of the 20 new teams already. So for some backers we might be able to actually ship your rewards in July (wwwaaaayyy ahead of schedule). We'll see how this plays out as I know this will be one of the biggest casting projects we've had for Trollforged so I'll keep you updated as we progress.
Again thank you backers for an incredible KickStarter. I am beyond pleased with the result.
Tom @ Impact!
