      Yeah, that's unfortunate.

    2. Creator James Gaines on May 1

      I can see the number inside the post. But where before updates was a sensible list of articles labeled along the lines of:
      Update #70: Fate Core - An Update on Stretchy Things

      Now I get some weird interactive timeline with tiny bubbles of post floating off to the side in time order. Call me old-fashioned, I call myself either gronard or curmudgeon, but I wouldn't think a simple text interface would be to much to ask, and I can't imagine all this HTML 5 floaty junk is reducing their overhead any.

    3. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on April 29

      That's odd! I can see the numbers on the updates still. I'll dig up the link — that said the most recent update was #70.

    4. Creator James Gaines on April 29

      Kickstarter Redesigned, the Updates aren't numbered anymore.

      What's the Date on Update #56?

    5. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on April 13

      Status on those things can be checked at the project status page linked below, still!

    6. Creator Joe D on April 10

      Any updates on
      Do: Fate of the Flying Temple
      Dresden Files Accelerated

    7. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on November 8, 2014

      No ETAs, no, but you can keep track of all Evil Hat's project statuses here:

    8. Creator Christian Lajoie on November 7, 2014

      Got an ETA for:
      Do: Fate of the Flying Temple ?
      Dresden Files Accelerated ?

    9. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on October 4, 2014

      Check your private messages from me here on the KS site. As a backer at $10 you would've been sent a private message pointing to the download page. The username and password for that download page can be found in update #56.

    10. Creator Christopher Chen on October 4, 2014

      Having trouble tracking down some of the expansion PDFs (expired Sendspace links?) -- is there a more recent link available?

    11. Creator Michael Pedersen on April 15, 2014

      Totally agree with Dirk. I've seen some really badly managed ones (including one that I think the game is awesome, but the company is in so much trouble that I don't think it will last the year due to how badly mismanaged everything seems to be).

      Evil Hat is the cream of the crop. Even when there was a delay, I knew what was going on without having to hunt for the info. Heck, even right now, with the last of the stretch goals being in process, I don't have to hunt. I know that the updates come out every three months or so, and we'll be kept in the loop.

      It's why I back every project of theirs (well, since I found out about them). Top notch. And I'll be back for the next one, whatever it may be :)

    12. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on April 14, 2014

      Thanks Dirk! We aim to impress.

    13. Creator Dirk Willrodt on April 14, 2014

      After a while here on Kickstarter, which started with this great one, I have to say that you spoiled me a little.
      I think it is important to thank you again for a very well executed campaign and especially the process afterwards with the delivery of the goods.
      Now that I have backed a few more projects I see that this one here was not the default and that these things tend to be much more chaotic.

    14. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on March 31, 2014

      Jacek — You beat me to it! That's exactly where I was gonna point ya. :)

    15. Creator Jacek on March 31, 2014

      Got it! Backer File Downloads - all clear now :)

    16. Creator Jacek on March 31, 2014

      There was a quite long list of item to be released after KS is funded - is there any updated list of those that are done and released (pdf) and thost still waiting to be finished (with a release date)? I got a bit lost what shhould I have now in pdf and what I am still waiting for :)

    17. Creator Adam Diran on February 8, 2014

      The Kickstarter has begun for the Fate Core powered Mecha Vs. Kaiju!

      Check it out!

    18. Creator Javier Gaspoz on January 17, 2014

      Finally!!! After almost a year after the KS ended, I've finally got the books with me!!! They're gorgeous, my preciousssss

    19. Creator Michele Toscan on January 16, 2014

      Thank you VERY much!!!

    20. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on January 15, 2014

      Yes; go to the private message inbox you have here on the Kickstarter site itself and look for a message from me. It contains the link to the secret backer download page. Then go to update #56 to get the username and password for logging in — we had to password protect it after I sent out the private message.

    21. Creator Michele Toscan on January 15, 2014

      As a backer of THE BOOK level, should I be able to download the FATE Toolkit? I can't find the links in my old mails.

    22. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on January 9, 2014

      You talking about our Zeppelin Attack! kickstarter? That's scheduled for the end of this month, if all goes well.

    23. Creator Nohwear on January 9, 2014

      Any ideas when the next KS will start?

    24. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on December 3, 2013

      Nope. As we've said, we're entering the much slower third phase of the project. I'd expect material there would get updated more like quarterly or slower.

    25. Creator Gary Rabinovich on December 3, 2013

      Just wondering if there is anything new on the Double Secret Probation website?

    26. Creator ET3D on December 3, 2013

      I got FAE and finished reading it. It's the first RPG book I read cover to cover in years. Thanks for making it condensed. It's my first real read of FATE, and as someone who played mainly stat heavy games 20 years ago it was an interesting read.

      I feel bad for the guy who got it for me. He forgot to give the package to the people who could have brought it to me, felt bad about it, and so sent it at a cost of $15 (because he didn't open the package).

    27. Creator Jackson Starky on November 23, 2013

      And today, three days after getting my tracking email, and eight days after the box arrived, I got my shipping notification e-mail. I love it when time runs in reverse... or seems to. :-D

    28. Creator MidnightBlue on November 22, 2013

      Oh...that's MO, USA for the folks that care about shipping destinations.

    29. Creator MidnightBlue on November 22, 2013

      My box arrived safe and sound last night!

      The remainder of my sextet was a pleasant surprise on a cold misty day!


      Now to find a few months to read all of them...


      That Strange Tales book is a BEAST. I wasted a couple of hours last night just thumbing through that thing.

      Fun will be had!

    30. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on November 21, 2013

      Alliance loves a winner. ;)

    31. Creator Gary Rabinovich on November 21, 2013

      I just saw FATE in the November issue of GTM in the Spotlight section. Congrats.

    32. Creator John Polack on November 20, 2013

      Fred, thank you I was able to get all the d/l's and am quite happy... :-)

    33. Creator Jackson Starky on November 20, 2013

      Picked up my stuff from the post office today; everything was in excellent shape (kudos to the packing and shipping people). Looking forward to getting my dice so my group can get started playing!

    34. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on November 20, 2013

      Check your private messages here on for the message you were sent months ago with access to the secret backer download page. That's where you'll find the link. We had to password-protect it after we sent that message out, so you'll need to check Update #56 to get the username and password.

    35. Creator John Polack on November 20, 2013

      Fred and Evil hat crew...I am at work and have limited access to certan things on KS site but I backed at the 30$ level and thought I would get the pdf's off all the Exspansion level goodies? Has this gone out yet? Did I miss a post with the links?

      Please point my simple mind in the right direction unless these items are fothcoming then I will just wait like a good boy for my fate toys!

      and bye the bye the core book is AMAZING! just so you know caseu I a SURE you have not heard that a million times already!!!!

      Be well,

      John Polack

    36. Creator Marco Mensen on November 20, 2013

      Since there is no invoice with the package, the German customs has stopped it. Would it be possible to provide (asap) a digital invoice to download with which I am able to get the parcel. Would be good, if single parts were listed individually (books, postal rate, electronic services). Thank you very much!

      Regards, M.

    37. Creator Jackson Starky on November 20, 2013

      Heh. Got my tracking email today... and apparently, my books have been waiting at my postal outlet for five days. I got no delivery notification. I'll have to crack some heads when I go in and pick up my box tomorrow. :-)

    38. Creator Philippe Saner on November 20, 2013

      My books came in today. They're solidly made and they arrived ahead of schedule. I have no complaints.

      Thanks much, Evil Hat.

    39. Creator Anthony Weber on November 19, 2013

      Just got mine in. Did notice however that the Fate Core Accelerated's binding isn't very strong at all. I'll be putting a couple staples through it since the pages are very easy to pull right out. Haven't got the guts to try breaking in the binding on the main books yet, but they feel nice and solid!

    40. Creator ChaosModifier on November 19, 2013

      Thanks, I kew my order was weird and would probably be in the last few shipments, but still I want it now! :)

    41. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on November 19, 2013

      December. Media Mail ain't fast. :)

    42. Creator ChaosModifier on November 19, 2013

      Hmm.. Haven't received anything here in Utah. When should I start being worried?

    43. Creator Jackson Starky on November 18, 2013

      Still waiting for my Strange Quintet in Canada. Hopefully it's arriving soon, if Bernard has received his in Belgium. :-)

    44. Creator AndreasDavour on November 16, 2013

      This have been a model for others when it comes to rpg crowdfunding. You probably have had your snafus, but the regularity of updates and insight into what's going on have been exemplary. Many thanks to Fred, and crew! Thanks!

    45. Creator Stephen Meriles on November 15, 2013

      Really love these new games, guys, my Dad had a blast with FATE Core!

      Also, Fred, your Google+ makes you look like Ice-T. Please don't change it!

    46. Creator Bernard Kerckenaere on November 15, 2013

      Got my strange quintet in Belgium. Thank you so much for clearly putting "Books" on the invoice, so avoiding the pesky customs!

    47. Creator MidnightBlue on November 14, 2013

      Thank you!

      I just got confirmation from Alliance/Diamond that that is indeed what shipped!

      Come on Sextet!
