Frequently Asked Questions
Our company is based in Riverside, California, but the development team is based in Italy and we are not English native. During the frenzy of the campaign, there is really very little time and communication with backers must be fast. We believe that some silly constructions (although silly and funny) do not distort the meaning of what we want to say. But obviously, game instructions and components will be done by professionals and proofread by several native speakers.Last updated:
The game will be developed in English and French, however, the downloadable rules and the Codex Arcanum will be available on our site (pdf version): http://ludusmagnusstudio.com/

This year we have changed some policies about groups due to some troubles about the past campaign.
You can organize a group to save a big part of the shipping cost (cost depend on weight/dimension) but we have not discount for groups like past year cause you can save on shipping itself (depends on the number of backers with a min. of 30+).
We can send all the games to one address who will manage 2nd part shipping for only backer. You can save about 50% on shipping for every order.Last updated:
You just need to pledge the game with the same account that you used for pledge NA or ST and the discount will be automatically addedLast updated:
You already have two previous successful campaigns, you have not yet delivered any and the first one is more than 2 years late, why?
The second wave of our first game Nova Aetas is about to arrive in early June 2018.
The most recent delays were due to problems with printing the miniatures; some of them had been slightly ruined and we had to remake them.
Everything will be shipped by plane in an effort to speed things up. The packages will be sent in the first week of May directly to single backers in the USA and subsequently to backers in the EU, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
We are still a young company and the NA project has been characterized by lots of unexpected problems. For us, it was like a battlefield where we were always on the front line. We hope the quality of the final product helps improve our rank.
The company has grown and with it our focus on the development of quality products in terms of both game mechanics and design. At the moment, our team is made up of 10 professionals and boasts numerous third-party collaborations. All this has a cost.
Although the success of Sine Tempore helps us sleep at night, a company that intends to keep growing and developing cannot stay with their arms folded, wasting precious time and money. And we're ready to ship it in December 2018.
That’s why, just like many other production companies, at the end of one project we need to start preparing the next one. For this reason and due to a number of NA production delays, the two projects have overlapped. But we're still here, working hard to give you what you deserve.
We have launched lots of initiatives to try and make up for it, which is more than what a lot of other companies do: a miniature, the reprinting of all manuals and cards from the 1st wave (about 500 cards and 3 manuals) and now shipment by air without any additional costs to the backers.
To encourage you to back us in this new adventure, all Nova Aetas and Sine Tempore backers that join the Black Rose Wars campaign will receive free - with the second wave of the project (scheduled for June 2019) - all the rules and cards to play Crono in our two previous games, plus a further $5 discount in the PM (which added to an EB translates into a discount of $15 with respect to the base pledge).
I hope this doesn't stop you from following us.
If you appreciate the quality of our products, then we ask that you please renew your trust in us. We are confident that we have done everything in our power to guarantee a quality product and transform our inexperience into our biggest strength.
There were bound to be a few mistakes along the way, but sometimes it’s the only way to learn. And don't forget that Kickstarter it's not a shop, it is a tool that helps people realize their dreams.Last updated:
No. To have access to the PM you will need to make at least an Initiate Pledge (or higher) before the campaign ends on May 20. If you do not, you may participate in the Late Pledge, but at an additional price of $10 above final costs.Last updated:
Yes, there will be for sure a Late Pledge after the campaign and It will be available at a slightly higher price.Last updated:
