43 hours to go! Small Surprise, Stretch Goal and Add-On Store Reminder

Posted by Shawn Michael Hescock (Creator)


We are down to less than two days and are 330% funded. We are so appreciative of all of you, thank you so much. Without you, Adventure Post would not be happening. Without the help and advice from you, our backers, this would not have been as successful. We are in your debt (literally and figuratively).


It sounds like we are fully on track to getting everything done before mid-March, allowing us to start sending these out first thing in April. But honestly, the best part of this is about to begin. The part where all of our collective creativity starts assembling itself into a full, complete story. Indi's beautiful artwork, Toby's killer maps, Caitlin's creative writing. This part is the most work but it is by far the most fun. I hope to share some more artwork updates tomorrow but we will see how things go.


So... it's not much... but it is something. Being a Patron of Dark Realm Maps (Toby), I was gifted a personalized crypt map and we have decided to put it into the game as an additional, free, side quest sort of thing. We are not entirely sure if it will be a postcard, jumbo-postcard, or a print & play but I do know that the rewards for embarking on this little side-step will have quite the reward. Essentially, A Path of Self-Learning is now 13 maps, rather than twelve.

      Great update! I pulled the trigger and did a final share on FB and Twitter; today will be some clicking, some liking of things on BGG, and a bit of word of mouth.

      Thanks for another Great update Shawn! I was blown away by how many backers we got yesterday, wow!

      Good news on that extra reward as well! Dice engraving indeed! In addition to the Adventure post dice, I have been getting a lot of orders coming in and I dont think I have had a dice-free work day in weeks! Which is ok, I love dice :)
