Have a question?
@Josh Wagner - If you log into PledgeManager through this link: http://davidlarocca.pledgemanager.com/
you can unlock your pledge and make adjustments, including adding on new items. If you would like to see how to unlock your pledge, I walk you though it, starting at about the three and a half minute mark in this video:
How do I add a playmat to my backing?
@Rhea: thanks for the heads up.
@Chris Langevin & @Forar: David and Heath have the first set of dice samples in hand and spent all of yesterday going over them. There were some things that needed to be changed so the dice are perfect, so that will mean another round of samples before mass production can begin. It looks like shipping will be pushed back into September, but we want the dice to be absolutely perfect. Expect an official update very soon!
Similarly, I have an event I plan to run in September where the dice sets will be gifts to participants, but if they won't arrive until later, I'll need to reschedule.
Not a huge problem, just need to know. But of course, if the dice aren't on their way yet in mid July, realistically I'm guessing August shipping is unlikely.
Whats the situation with these, still on schedule for an August Delivery ? I have a RPG coming up and i am dying ot use these for it !!!
@Davros - Thank you!
Great update, highly anticipated here. 8)
@Robert Pack - Thanks for posting this info. It could be very helpful to those that sign in to Kickstarter via their Facebook account and haven't located their Pledge Manager invitation email.
The vast majority of people have already successfully completed their pledges via the Pledge Manager but if you sign in through Facebook and haven't received the invite then first, check the email account that is linked to the Facebook account that you use to sign in to Kickstarter. If you can't locate the invitation email you should go here: https://davidlarocca.pledgemanager.com/projects/elder-dice/ Click "Request New Invite" and enter your email address that is associate with your Kickstarter account. If you sign in with Facebook then that will most likely be the email address the new invitation will be sent to. Wait a few minutes and check your inbox, spam and junk folders for the invitation. Thanks!
After speaking to David Larocca a few times over the DMs on this site I have found a issue that was preventing me from getting my Pledgemanager invites and such.
I was using Facebook to log into kickstarter and apparently it was using a older email on that account which carried over to here. Problem is I have not used that old email for years and went through the steps to change it back to my current one. ( which took like 20 min tops) and then I went into here and changed my email just to be twice as sure every thing was set correctly. Then I went to the pledge manager and tried to send the conformation email. That part took a while to show up ( about a night or so idk I fell alseep so idk the exact time) and I did the same for Kickstarter. The kick starter took all of 5 min to show up. After that David had mentioned he wold send me another invite just to make sure it worked and BOOM I got it.
I know thats a bit of a mess but that is every step I took in order I took it. Both the good and the bad so you might be able to learn from my mistake and problem and might be able to fix your own stuff :)
Hey Cthulhu lovers, has anyone else seen this? I love my mythos, and my Carcassonne
SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY :P
@Chris libeu - Did you get in? I just checked Pledge Manager and it looks like you did finish your pledge. If you need additional help, please just message us. But, also, anyone can request a re-invite from the following link: https://davidlarocca.pledgemanager.com/projects/elder-dice/#reinvite
@Chris Libeu - Yup, it went out a few weeks ago at this point. If you hit the "Late Pledge", go to Sign In, then click the "Find Account" button, it should get you where you want to be.
has the pledges Manger been sent out yet I haven't gotten mine
Great news! Happy to know about the timing of the progress :)
And say hello to Rhea, from us all! :)
Hi everyone! While we all wait for Elder Dice to be manufactured I am posting some teaser/WIP images of our future project. You can find them on the Elder Dice Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1420574017999325
@GameMatz - Awesome, thank you!
Looking forward to these dice sets! Awesome job �
@Forar: Stay tuned! :)
@Brian Wilson: Sorry buddy, we can't stop. :D
I'm calling 6 sets as my limit. Much as I'd like to add 3 more to my backing, I think I'm in deep enough as it is. :-P
It's a humble backing, but I've gotta save something for the next round, assuming this is just the first round of several...
Oh, good. Just what I needed was more time to consider adding another collectors edition to the already obscene pile of dice I have coming. Stop selling things I want more of, damnit! :P
@Jason Arnold - I don't have an exact date for the last day to add additional items through the pledge manager. You still have some time to add on an odd item here or there. We will probably wrap up the call for late pledges in another week or two though.
woot, just in time for my birthday.
When is the latest we can add stuff to our order? wouldnt mind adding that cool Cthulhu mat
@chris sudweeks :D
I just checked my calendar August is tomorrow right?
@David Hatch - We are still aiming for shipping rewards in August. :) We'll be posting an update soon with new info on where we currently are with all of that.
Hopes and dream, but this is Kickstarter ;) We will see
Are you still expecting to ship in August? of 2017? :D
@Travis Odin Mattingly - Thank you! We are very glad to have you with us on the project. There is an easy way to change your shipping address through the PledgeManager, and we are going to keep that ability open as long as we possibly can so anyone with a last minute address change can get that in. I actually go through the process of unlocking PledgeManager on the short video I did, starting right here:
I'm really glad I backed this because the quality and care seem amazing. One thing I'm concerned about though is when they will be shipped out. I will be moving in 6 months and if it takes that long I'll have to figure out how to change the pledge address
@Stephen Robshaw - :)
@Jason - Much appreciated!
Cant wait to see what the next kickstarter will be from Infinite Black! :D
Liked and shared the Facebook page. Great name!
One things that happened over the last few days is that David and I formed Infinite Black. That is the company that will officially publish Elder Dice. We put together a Facebook page for it and will post any Facebook info on Elder Dice there. Check it out and give us a "like". :-)
Yes thank you for update and love to see what else y'all cook up.
Thanks for the update!!
Hi everyone! Heath and I had a very productive time during our creative sabbatical. The biggest Elder Dice news is that we were able to send our order in to the manufacturer! They are going over all the numbers and will be getting back to us very soon to finalize it.
Heath and I also explored a couple of new creative ideas that we are not ready to offically announce yet but when we do we really think that you like them. :)
We'll go into greater detail about the Elder Dice manufacturing process once the order has been finalized. We want to keep everyone up to date so you know exactly what is going on throughout the creation of Elder Dice.
Cant wait for August to come! Be gd to hear what creative ideas uve come up with! :D
So how was the creative sabbatical? Are we expecting any news, or surprises? :D
Snakes and Lattes is a good place. I shop there once in a while.
I am terribly sorry. The last comment that was posted was accidental. That was intended to be on the Incantris (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1376478938/incantris) campaign. I had the wrong browser open. Sorry about that!
Oh, and we also just heard from Snakes & Lattes. They have the main shipment in their warehouse and are awaiting the arrival of the correct miniatures that FunAgain is sending them. That should be soon and then the Canadian shipments will be going out! :-)
Just a quick reminder that I am going to be working from an internet-free location between now and Wednesday of next week. David will be joining me for the final few days of that. We are going on "creative sabbatical" to focus on some new projects. We will not be completely without internet during that time and will be able to handle any emergency or critical issues, but be aware that general communication may wait until after that time, and we will be generally less available on social media during that time. Have a great weekend!
@Tyler McDonald - If you would, please go ahead and lock the order with whatever address you have. That way I know the numbers of each item you have are final and can add them to the tally. When you get the new address for your apartment, please just unlock the pledge and update the shipping address.
I have completed by order preparations in the pledge manager, however I will be moving to a new apartment in May but we do not have a definitive address yet. Since the expected shipping date will not be until around August should I leave the pledge order 'unlocked' until the time where I have the correct address? I want to ensure that my pledge will not become unavailable if there is too much delay in confirmation.
@Jason Arnold - It is pretty good! I figured the 80/20 rule would apply to the PledgeManager. I expected for 80% of the backers to come through the system very easily. It would be really nice to be above 90% when I start compiling numbers for how many of everything to order.
Good luck guys! Glad to get an update
88% is actually pretty good, normally you see it take a lot longer on other projects
@Brian Wilson - Thank you! And speaking of communication, we just posted Update #8! Here's all the latest: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/davidlarocca/elder-dice-lovecraftian-themed-dice-for-all-tablet/posts/1866867
@William Shaver - It's important to note that Kickstarter is not a store, so if you think you've "ordered" something that's just going to show up like it would from Amazon, you're going to be very disappointed. Instead, your money (the pledge) is being used to help bring the project to life and as a thank you, the creators send you a "reward", typically in the form of the output of the project. If you go back to the "campaign" section, you'll notice that the spot where you made your pledge lists the "Estimated Delivery" as August 2017. So realistically, you shouldn't be expecting anything until at least then. Sometimes, a project can run into issues or delays that can push that date, so you'll need to keep that in mind as well. Thankfully, the team here seems to be really proactive in communication, so I have high hopes that we'll see our rewards on time (or at least, be the first to know if there's an issue).
@William Shaver - We are aiming for all rewards to be sent out in August. Manufacturing will begin soon. We are still waiting on some backers to complete their pledges in the Pledge Manager. We hope to send everything to the manufacturer very soon (probably this week) and they will create the molds, etc. We will update everyone along the way. :)
Is there any kind of a timeline on how long it will take for the dice to come in? I still have yet to receive mine....
