Preparation for Fulfilment

Greetings Martians, and Happy New Year! I've got some exciting news about development and delivery of the product line.

We're Preparing to Fulfill In Stock Items

We are currently downloading fulfilment details for pledges that have all their items in stock, I'll break this down in a moment but it means we're at a crucial point: you have 48 hours to update your shipping address if you have moved or would like it shipped somewhere else. We need to know, so we can lock it down and correctly ship your items.

If you need to update your shipping details, please use Pledge Manager, by going here and logging in: https://signin.pledgemanager.com/ 

In Stock Items

We'll begin fulfilling orders from January 14th, to pledges that ONLY contain the following:

  • Core rulebook, Phantoms or Mars campaign guide, or Slipcase Set.
  • Narrator's Kit (screen and booklet)
  • Helium, Thark, or Zodanga dice sets
  • Prince of Helium notebook
  • Airships of Barsoom or Ruins of Korad tile sets
  • Heroes of Barsoom miniatures sets

If you've bought add-ons that aren't in the above list, I'm afraid we'll be fulfilling your pledge later. Other miniatures sets have been coming in, but I'm yet to confirm which. When I know more I'll update you!


Wave 1 Product Development and Production

Development and production continues as we gear back up from the Christmas break, so here's a rundown of where we are, and when we can expect items to come in for fulfilment:
  • Miniatures production: All miniatures should be finished by the end of January, and available for fulfilment in February.
  • Legacy poster map: layout being finalised, then printing this month, available for February.
  • Fabric Map: Sample being approved, then moving into production - hopefully ready for February.
  • Core Rulebook (Executive Version): Copies of the regular hardback have been sent to our artisan in Spain for binding. Should be available for February.
  • Jeddak of Jeddak's Notebook: Ready, and will be shipping with the executive rulebooks.
  • Players Guide: Final PDF proofs in review, and upon approval we'll be going to the printers. These should be ready for late-February, early March.
  • Character and Landscape card decks: are in late layout stages, and we're just securing a printer. These should be ready for late-February, early March.

Wave 2 Development

We've received almost all the first drafts now for the Dotar Sojat, Prince of Helium, and Jeddak of Jeddaks supplements. I'll have more news in the next update when Virginia is back in the office.

Thanks for your patience, we're all looking forward to fulfilling pledges from January 14th, and then again once all the wave 1 items are available in February and March!

      @Thomas Burke, all your miniatures should arrive Feb/March as their production is almost finished and we arrange another fulfilment booking with our warehouse.

      @Netobvious it's an Arbok! And the tax is for reading the long update :)

      @Damian That's right.

      What it reads above is that you will only get a shipment in January if you pledged and got the things on that list:

      Core rulebook, Phantoms or Mars campaign guide, or Slipcase Set.
      Narrator's Kit (screen and booklet)
      Helium, Thark, or Zodanga dice sets
      Prince of Helium notebook
      Airships of Barsoom or Ruins of Korad tile sets
      Heroes of Barsoom miniatures sets

      If you ordered anything above and beyond the list, you will get your items via shipment in February.

      Is Arbok Tax the artist? Almost sounds like a Barsoomian name. ;-)

      Sometimes I have a problem figuring out what the total mean of these updates mean. I paid for ALL THE MINIATURES ( Swords pledge ). Originally completion was slated for July 2018. It is now Jan 2019. When will my miniatures arrive ? Will they arrive piecemeal as they become available ? Will they arrive in one shipment after ALL THE MINIATURES are finished ?
      thank you

      Looking forward to my rewards even if I have to wait because of the addons. On the other hand I figured I might not have the money for the extras in 2019 and that turned out the case. lol. I did want a White Ape, your version is the best I've seen. Still can get characters created with the PDFs.

      Looks great but like some others... disappointment in going all out and having to wait as others get there stuff earlier. It happened with Conan and now here. Learned my lesson, not going to go all out on any future Modiphius Kickstartes. Just the basics next time!

      Hey, folks,

      Don't get me wrong.... I'm excited and pleased that things are finally shipping, but I've been wanting to run the game since the word came out, and depending when I receive my copies of the printed stuff, I may or may not be able to run the game at the location convention in May. That, and I'll be pretty annoyed when the game shows up in gaming shoppes and I'm still waiting on my backer pledge that I invested in...too heavily.

      Ah, well, other games await and patience is a virtue and all that. :)

      So would this include the Starter Set option in the pledge manager?

      Heck, it's tax season here in the states. I won't have time to look at the books and goodies until the end of April anyway. So no biggie on my end.

      Still excited though!

      Thanks for shipping the orders that are ready. From the list, my order won’t be available until March but that’s ok with me. This huge amount of content is too much to digest until the summer anyway. :}

      @Sam,

      So what you're saying is that the more stuff one pledged around in the KS, the later we're going to get everything at once? Gee, that sucks! :(

      Guess I won't be running a game of John Carter of Mars any time soon! :(

      It's amazing. I've been waiting for this for fifty years, you'd think I wouldn't be so impatient at this point! (Not impatient as in 'you guys are slow', but impatient as in 'gimme gimme gimme').

    15. Krzysztof on

      ...and just like that, I regret buying all the miniatures!
