Have a question?
I received my Sooth Deck earlier in the week. I decided to open it last night with my future players. The inside was damaged, but the cards are beautiful. @Dave Rozenweig, the exterior of my box seems ok. It’s the inside which was torn and bruised.
It sounds like the possibility is high, since I had Tammie answer my question: The Invisible Sun Free Rules Primer will be available in 6 to 8 weeks.
I'll ask again in December. :D
@Darius and @James: Hey fellas, Darcy gave us an official answer in the comments of of Update #59. Granted, they don't have a specific answer yet, they're at least aware of our interest and they're working on it. Beyond that, I'll let Darcy's answer speak for itself.
It's the most I could hope for. They're on it.
@James I'm in the group, which hasn't gotten an official answer, that's why I asked here.
Join the G+ group for talk regarding the PDF rules primer: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JamesFellows/posts/hAeHVRi8aZH
I am curious as well.
We know the Cube will be delayed into next year, will this affect the pdf primer as well?
Thank you So much :) I am so looking forward to the game!
Hi! I believe you should have indicated any add-on pledges via your Backerkit for Invisible Sun, and Backerkit says you've answered its survey and indeed selected the stretch goal books that you pledged for :-)
I somehow lost track of what surveys I answered for which project. I hope I did not overlook something. Was there already an opportunity to order the stretch goal books I pledged for?
@ Dave Rosenzweig - my message didn't contain all the information. I actually submitted my trouble ticket more than a week before I got a response (due to Gen Con), it just so happened that I got a response just as I was posting follow up messages.
I did not get an instant response but I did (and always do get) great customer service from the team.
Hi @Dave! I am SO sorry - yesterday Tammie and I spent most of the day working through customer service tickets together because we HATE keeping you waiting and there is quite a backlog (partly because I'm new, we had Gen Con, everyone got sick, and I had a family member pass - August was a rollercoaster!).
Since we were working together, we had to start at different ends of the queue. It was very useful though, since I was able to ask tons of questions and get her help in real time, so now when I do customer service I can do much more of it on my own, and we can stagger our work through the older backlog. I hope this sheds some light on what we're doing - we've got a plan in place to make sure backlogs don't build up like this in the future.
We will be getting to your issue very soon, so sorry!
Wow, @Leinad gets a response immediately. It's been 10 days for me and not a word. I've been a fan since the Books of Might days but this is getting discouraging.
weirdly - just got a response as I was writing this - thanks!
Hi - I've left a couple of messages about my sooth deck box that was damaged. I submitted through the website and for some reason it associates it with "a strange box" when I submit the form. Couldn't see how to upload photos either. Please let me know!
I'm looking forward to receiving my extra Sooth Deck,
Hi @Dave! Sorry for the wait - we're still working through our Gen Con backlog of messages. We'll get to you as soon as we are able! Thanks for your patience :-)
@Sean K Reynolds Sent the message via the "Contact Us" form on the web site, five days later still no response.
Saw this article and the images made me immediately think of Invisible Sun. Thought I'd share with the rest of the community.
@Sean K Reynolds Will do. Thanks.
@Dave Rosenzweig it sounds like you received a defective box! Please message us through our website's Contact Us form (which will let you attach photos of the damaged box) so we can get you a replacement copy.
I just got my sooth deck, and the box looks pretty beat up. Splits on two of the outer edges and inside the rectangle shape that holds the deck is torn front and back so the cards sink to the bottom and when I close the box the front lip of the lid extends past the bottom edge. Anyone else have this problem?
My wife and I got our extra sooth deck yesterday too. We were thrilled, its gorgeous. [Except the spider drinking from the corner of of a guy's eye, which I forgot to warn her about and made her shriek]. Wonderful!
@Leinard - I *think* so. Mine had the same secret that was shared in a photo in the G+ community. We'd need more comparison to be sure.
Received my (extra) sooth deck today - found the secret behind the cards - I'm wondering if the secret is the same in each deck!?!
I currently do not have a game group but with the impending arrival of IS, I was thinking of creating some special invited for the gamers that I do know as a way of enticing them to play. Any ideas?
i was a little saddened with the widespread closing of all the MCG backerkit projects, it has been my experience with all my other backerkit using projects that you could review your choices years after they had been locked and even delivered. this was the case with all the other MCG projects until the backerkit for IS was closed at which time all other MCG projects were also closed.
Tomorrow (Aug. 21) the people who are under the Gray Sun (at certain areas in the North America region) will witness a total eclipse.
Prepare your rituals and remember to stay on the Path of Totality.
Hey everyone. I remember how amazing and how much fun this community was and have only had that experience with a couple kickstarter campaigns thus far. For anyone looking for a cool new prospect for a game and a pretty amazing community to get behind come check out Epoch the Awakening. you won't regret it.
Pale sun medallion looks gorgeous!
Sean is correct - I was digging for a reminder of what I pledged for, not to change my pledge :)
Hope no one minds me mentioning but I've just seen the Surreal Dice Tower on KS and think it'd be perfect for games of IS...
It is closed, I suspect I did misunderstand.
I'm pretty sure the BackerKit for Invisible Sun is closed, and that Krzysiek just meant they checked the original confirmation email to see what they decided on when the BackerKit was open.
Of course, the backerkit can be used to change your mailing address. It just didn't occur to me we could do more add-ons.
Can we still access the backerkit?!?!?
Nevermind - found the email. Getting both sets :D
Anyone got a link to the backer kit? I need to refresh my memory on what i added on to my pledge ^_^
At the risk of being a smart alec, Krzysiek, the add-on chart is still up on the main campaign page. The Sun Medallions were $107 and the Order Medallions were $58. :)
The medallions from add-on were only sun medallions if I recall correctly. Order medallions were exclusive to the group tier I think?
They were add-ons for the medallions during the Kickstarter. I couldn't bring myself to add them sight-seen, but if they were made available (like the sooth deck) I would be interested.
I saw it! Thank you so much!
@Jim Groves and @Everyone
Bear has provided a photo for scale, and weights:
Weight, with chain:
Vance Medallion: 1.4 oz (41g)
Pale Sun Medallion: .7 oz (20g)
Without chain (best guess):
Order Medallion: .6 oz (18g)
Sun Medallion: .5 oz (15g)
"It has a nice wearable weight without being heavy or burdensome."

Crossposted with the update comments.
@Bear or Sean,
Would it be possible to get an idea of the weight or an average medallion? I don't need/want something precise, I'm just wondering if it has a little heft, so that it hangs properly. I'm also curious about the size. Could you take a picture (and maybe tweet it?) along side a quarter or half-dollar?
I'm blown away by the appearance and detail. If they're available, I might consider getting a whole set, that's why I'm asking.
those medallions are World. Of. Awesome.
@Leo Jenicek haha nice recovery! :)
@Everyone we've posted a new Kickstarter update about the Sooth Deck and the physical medallions—with videos and photos! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/montecookgames/invisible-sun/posts/1951637
Grey Sun! Still there apparently.
Sean, thanks! I was under the Grey Sin completely forgo about that!
@Leo Jenicek we sent an opt-in survey to backers about using backer names in a social media promotion—that's the result. You opted in, so yours is on the list of future tweets (and you included your Twitter handle, so it'll be tweeted at you, you can't miss it!).
@The Monkey I think that would make a good web article for the MCG site… you may see something like that in the future.
I tend to use sound effects and music in games to help bring tension and assist with promoting an aural focus for my players. So...does anyone have any ideas - a playlist if you like - of mood music suitable to instill a subtle sense of unreality to Invisible Sun games?
How does one get a tweet? As reference in; https://www.montecookgames.com/the-aethyr-lies-dormant-within-you/
