DP9 Pledge Manager is Live for the Venus Forces Kickstarter - Plus News Update!
The Dream Pod 9 Pledge Manager website, has been updated with the Venus Kickstarter reward levels and add-ons and is now live! If you previously supported our first Jovian Wars KS or Heavy Gear Blitz Peace River & NuCoal or Utopia KS you'll receive an email later today (February 7th, 2019) saying that reward points equal to your JW Venus Forces Kickstarter pledge have been added to your account. You can then login to the DP9 Pledge Manager at https://dp9pledgemanager.com/index.php?route=account/login using the same email address used to login in to Kickstarter and your personal password for the DP9 Pledge Manager. If you've forgotten your password click the link right under where you enter it and follow the instructions. Once your logged in you can select your reward level and add-ons. We are aiming to start shipping Venus Backer Reward Packages in late March.
For all our other Venus Kickstarter Backers we'll be sending out invite emails in the next 24 hours with a link to the DP9 Pledge Manager website and a temporary login password. You'll use the same email address used to login in to Kickstarter in the pledge manger with the temporary password sent in the email. If you don't see an email in your inbox in the next 24 hours, check your spam or junk mail folder just encase.
Once you've got your invite email and clicked the link, you'll be on the login page, see the image below, enter your email and temporary password. If there is any problem entering it, you can click the forgotten password link. When your logged in you'll need to update your account with first and last name and update your phone number (we need this info for shipping with US and Canada Post). Then you must change your password to ensure your account is secure, and then enter your billing address.
You can also click the "Your Reward Points" link under My Orders and see your total reward points, where each $1 CAD Pledged during the Kickstarter has been converted into Reward Points ($1 CAD = 1 Reward Point). Once your done updating your account you can click the text link at the top to start Step 1, which is selecting your reward level, (while your here in the Kickstarter, you should check what you reward level you selected and take a note of it). Please take the time to read the "How The Pledge Manager Works" notes. Then its onto selecting your Reward Level and any Add-Ons you pledged for. You can also add more Add-Ons from the Venus Kickstarter . At checkout you will be asked to pay the fix shipping cost and for any extra Add-Ons you added. Please note that the HGB Peace River & NuCoal and Utopia Kickstarters are still active in the Pleage Manager, but please do not select any of their reward levels or add-ons to go with your Venus backer rewards package as they will not be ready to ship until later this year.
Now onto some more Venus Kickstarter news. Since our last update we have received a few items at the office. First we received the Jovian Wars Patches (4.5" wide, with iron-on backing) that are included in each of the Pilot ($6 pledge) and above reward level pakages, see photo below.
We also received the Venus Decal Packs from Fighting Pirannah Graphics (image below).
Plus we received the acrylic base plates from Impudent Mortal.
That's all for today's update, we'll have another news update next week with images of all the 3d printed venus spaceship parts and the first of the pewter parts molds.
