578 backers pledged $31,346 to help bring this project to life.

And We're Off!

We had some slight delays in getting exact file specifications from Panda GM*, but yesterday morning we uploaded the last of our files, popped over to our credit union, and wired them the down payment. So if we're reading the quote correctly, that means within 30 days we ought to have a mockup in our hands for approval.

That means the next update you read here on Kickstarter will hopefully include a photograph of a very happy Corvus holding the world's first professionally-produced Skein Pack. We'll share more timeline details about when we can expect to see the final product in that update as well.

In the meantime, please feel free to join us at the new From there you can sign up for our email newsletter, Like us on Facebook, circle us on Google+, follow us on Twitter, subscribe to our RSS feed, share your Bhaloidam expeirences, and ask us questions on the forums. You can even drop in on our IRC channel where Corvus lurks most weekdays. And when our Kickstarter backers register on the new site, they'll be added to the Founders Circle, which currently unlocks a link to the PDF download and in the future will grant access to other Founders Circle goodies as well.

Now if you'll excuse us, we've got to get to packing so we can start moving into our new home next week.

Talk to you again in about a month!

*Not because they're difficult, but because we're odd. The good news is that part of the confusion led to even more goodies for you! We opted to move the handbook's Lifewheel page to the back cover of the handbook, so it can fill in as an extra Lifewheel. Additionally, each set of tokens will now have color-coded pawns, 9 positive modifier tokens, and 9 negative modifier tokens. That's 2x the pawns and 4x the modifier tokens than we originally planned.

      Keep an eye on the site for those sorts of updates! From this point forward, the only updates we'll make to Kickstarter will be about the timing of your rewards.

      Will there still be updates here when things like the Cuthulu alternate rules are up, or will we have to keep an eye on that other site instead?

    3. Creator Corvus Elrod on May 11, 2012

      Wait... maybe it was going to be 6 per token set.

      Regardless, there's more now and more is better. At least in this instance. ;-})

    4. Creator Corvus Elrod on May 11, 2012

      Heh. It was originally going to be 18 modifier tokens total. Now it's going to be 18 modifier tokens per set. Since a Skein Pack has 4 token sets, that means 4x the number of modifier tokens!

    5. Creator Aaron Burke on May 11, 2012

      Wait, 18 modifer tokens is 4x the original amount? So you were planning to deliver 4 and a half tokens? I'm glad it at least doubled! Those poor, poor half tokens.

      This is great! Thanks Zakelro! I look forward to using the new forums as a more centralized way to share new ideas and additions for Bhaloidam. It's the next step to building a community centered around making stories together!
