Custom cards are here!


Woo! The custom backer cards just arrived! ALSO: we’ve heard from the printers that Volume 2 will arrive in America on May 20th! However, it’ll still take a little while longer for the game to arrive at the shipping center and be processed and sent out to everyone. But this is great news! We’re ready to start collecting addresses for the final Story War shipment now!

Also, check it out! Not only have we finished the 25 song album, we've ALSO finished a 25 piece sound board based on the items from Story War. Here's a sneak peek:

We're still shooting for end of may to deliver most of the game modes, the soundboard app, and the online G+ client! But uh let me temper your expectations on some of those: The G+ client works and it's functional and you can play Story War on it, but Google Hangout turned out to be waaaay less robust than we originally hoped. There isn't even an app store for it; there are like 20 apps for the whole service. It's kind of surprising! But the sound board app is gonna be awesome! Most of the game modes have been developed already, but now that volume 2 stuff is out of the way, we're gonna spend a lot of our time polishing them so we can send them out ASAP.

We really appreciate your patience! It's been a crazy year - we were insanely overfunded and I'm proud of how many things we accomplished, and I'm quite happy with how (relatively) quickly we got Volume 1 shipped, but Volume 2 is sort of dragging and I apologize for that. The slowness is happening mostly because our resources are starting to thin out. Most of us only have time to work on Cantrip on nights and weekends because we all had to take on full time jobs at the beginning of the year, lest we drain the Cantrip bank account before finishing the project. And by not paying ourselves, we pass the savings on to you! :^) ha ha ha but yeah we just had to pay taxes and we're poor again, but we've got just enough juice to crash land this game into your mailboxes. LETS DO THIS!

Now that we have the confirmed shipping date from the printers, we're gonna contact DFTBA immediately and ask them to collect your addresses ASAP!

      Hello. Would like to know when will we be getting the expansion pack? Have yet to receive any email from DFTBA asking for my address. What is happening?

      I was never asked for my address again, I did the hero pack, should this have happened yet?

      Jonathan: Yes there WILL be an iOS app, and an android app. This will be a sound board app will be for iOS and android. Unfortunately there is no good Google Hangout equivalent for mobile - there aren't a ton of options for webcam-based gaming platforms.

      Any chance of an iOS app? Very few people I know tend to use G+…
