Progress Report and Proofs!

Hello again wonderful backers!

It’s been quietly busy over here at Elodin Enterprises! After our last update we submitted all of the art to the printer, and went back and forth on perfecting these beautiful cards.

This week the physical proofs showed up, and they've got us all twitterpated to see things in real life.


 

 

 
There are a few minor tweaks that need to be made, but we're actively talking with the printer as we write this update to get them addressed quickly and efficiently, and we'll keep you posted if anything changes. The good news is things are moving along nicely.


The non-card parts of the campaign are progressing well too! We got an update from Wyrmwood about poker chip production that included some awesome photos of the process.

Apparently the chips are sanded by being put into the spots here and are held there by vacuum while the sander runs over the tops of many chips at once. So cool!

We’ve also got campaign coins on their way, with each side representing the Selas and Chandrian decks we produced as part of the campaign.

Finally, a whopping 374 backers still haven’t completed their surveys. If you are one of those people, hurry up and fill out your information, or we’ll have no way of sending you your perks! If you think that might be you, or you want to double check, go to https://notw-art-deck.backerkit.com/ to recover your survey!

Best,
The Elodin Team

      Is it at all possible to add another deck to an order? I see the survey has been locked but I'd like to get one as a gift for someone.

      @Mauro - We're sorry about this! We don't have any messages from you that we can find, but we sent you a DM here on Kickstarter, and you can email us at elodin (@) patrothfuss.com if you'd prefer to handle it that way as well!

      I've sent two messages already about the survey, but I hadn't got any feedback.

      It's quite urgent.
      Could you please reply?
