Have a question?
This is great! I didn't expect the Black Cube to be such a hit with my ... kids ... but it's sturdy enough for them to climb on it and jump off of it, so it's become a beloved addition to the family room. (Which is good, because I have no idea how I'm going to store this thing.)
Is there a forum somewhere where we can ask game questions? If not, I have a question! Where are the rules for what Geotics summon, and how they interact with the world? I'm not talking about colloquy or types of summoning, but what comes after that. I get that the level of the creature determines quite a lot about how it interacts with other players, but I don't know how I'd handle the simple case of a Geotic summoning an angel for a Guard action, and then the Vislae gets attacked by something else (i.e. the NPC-on-NPC violence). And that's not even considering special abilities (I summoned a fire angel, which is immune to the Cerberus's hellfire breath!). Is there a Goetic bestiary somewhere that I've looked over? (The Bestiary in The Path has only 1 angel and 1 devil, both of which are far too high level for a level 1 Goetic to summon.)
Thanks! And great product!
I also would love form-fillable character sheets, even a regular PDF which I could make form-fillable.
The advantages of a PDF enable some visually impaired people to use a character sheet, to play an RPG and also helps people with poor or illegible handwriting.
One thing I would like to see are some form-fillable character sheets.
@Frank Branham, you should have 4 ten sided dice: 3 in one color and 1 of another. This is a list of components (though I don't know if it's up to date, IIRC more cards and tokens were added):
@nathan, I remember the update, yet there are backers from other continents (I am one of them) and I wanted to know how will the fullfilment go with those backer. (We are a minority, but we are still taking a part of this project.)
@Daryl, from what I understood, the sun based secret is set to the day you backed, regardless of changes one made to their pledge (we seem to agree on that). The medallion, on the other hand, is not necessarily the same sun as the secret is. (From the list of contents of the shipments in the latest update: "With one of eight random sun medallions".)
The reason is, that "there will be equal numbers of each made". (From the campaign page.)
If it was changed, I was not aware of that.
The cube arrived today! It's amazing. So...much... STUFF!
Is there a reasonably complete inventory of the cube somewhere? I think mine is missing dice, but I was hoping to check for any other missing bits before asking for support.
Because this is probably the single most daunting game ever to turn up on my doorstep.
@shai, nether is correct. I was communicating with the @creator to confirm. I was assured that the sun based secret and the medallion I had were set, even after I changed to "...with a key"
@Ross: Look under the insert of the second drawer for the token chitboards!
@K. David, there won't be PDFs of the books, yet, according to @Jim Groves, there are searchable text files of the rules.
Also, curious about the keyfall. When are we supposed to receive those?
I just got mine and it's amazine. Overwhelming, really. Where are the punch out tokens? I can't find them.
Cube has arrived, gonna wait until tonight to open it with the playgroup. Query, will PDFs be made available?
There was info and update about UK, Europe, Asia, NZ, Australia shipping in update #80.
(It was supposed to end with a Q. mark)
@MCG, in today's update (I'm assuming there is one) could you give a general timeline for shipping to the rest of the world (Not US, Euro and AUS).
Saajan - I suspect any messages they've received over the past few days are simply forming a backlog in their system right now, while they're all hands on posting the cubes to US backers. It's annoying, I know (waiting for a reply myself), we'll have to wait for a little bit longer while they sort everything out.
@Daryl, the medalions that go with the cube are random. (From the "Control the Black Cube" description in the campaign page: "fate will decide which medallion you get...")
The sun based secret is according to the day you backed.
@MCG Can you provide any further information regarding Australian shipping? You briefly mentioned AU in Update 73 about teaming up with a local distributor and the cubes going out more or less with the US but there has been not a mention of this since then. Is this still going ahead or are we waiting for a resend from the UK?
I bought 3 Cubes only had a coupon for one(I have the Backer Kit confirmation).
Nothing on medallion or keys I believe.
Already sent a message to MCGames a few days ago, would love to get this resolved ASAP!
I got the cube, but none of my addons, the right medallion, or the keys.
Those who have had their Cubes ship received a searchable text file today. It’s like a universal game glossary that includes spells and card based information. I have it, so this is not rumor or speculation.
@Tyler, if I remember correctly, there won't be PDFs for the books. Though there will be an App., that might have some of the rules on it, so you can play "on the go" (side scenes).
Just need copies of the PDFs for the main books now so I can study on the go!
Got mine yesterday in Oregon.
Got my cube today... HUGE Beast! and very well packed
@Jim Groves Okay thanks.
It’s here! Impressed an amazed by the contents, quality and design .... impressed by the packaging too! Can’t wait to dig in further.
@Alyx - while they certainly don't like it when we do that, sometimes giving them a poke via Twitter helps with getting their attention if you have a serious issue (which I'd certainly class yours as)
@Jared The wicked keys and the Vislae Kits are not shipping yet. They will be coming separately later.
Well mine just showed up, sans any notification at all. So who knows your cube could be on the way right now.
Yet to attempt contacting them - Figure they're all hands on deck what with summoning rituals taking place left and right. I am curious as well, though, if wicked keys or visale kits are in flight or still in construction...
@Cameron: The Wicked Keys are not ready, they’ll be sent at a later time. There are a few other bits and add-ons that aren’t ready too, like the Order Medallions and the miniatures. The PDF reference is being polished up by Shanna and should be done in about a week. The App is close to being done but going through a round of beta-testing.
Has anyone had any luck contacting MCG? I sent them an email (through the contact info in last update) because my coupon code 'vanished' from their website. I haven't heard back and I'm starting to get a little worried... :(
tldr; I redeemed one code (pdf primer) went back to redeem other code (black cube) but it was gone.
Hey everyone. I just got my Black Cube in today and I was curious to know where the 9 wicker keys are located in the Cube? I couldn't find it in my brief unboxing.
@Demithyl. I figure it’s the all hands on deck at the warehouse situation. While I’m hating waiting, I have faith that MCG will make sure the wait was worth it.
On a different note - we were told the cube itself would contain secrets. Has anyone found any yet?
@Shawn - two guesses as to why we're not getting replies about our Bind the Cube rewards:
A) they're all hands on shipping the cubes in their warehouse
B) we've been told those higher tiers will be addressed in the next update
Does it suck that backers putting down 4 digit sums for their product are being effectively ignored? Yup, but I guess these are the caveats of working with a small team on a large project.
Got my cube yesterday. I was too tired from work to start plumbing it's depths, but today I might be up to the task...!
I just got my notification from fedex today, I should get mine on Monday.
Got my Cube today! Can't wait! I do love a good mystery.
@Master Magus Kato. If it makes you feel better, I’m still waiting to get a coupon for my cube. Messaged MCG here and through their web store and am still waiting for a response too.
So my order is still being processed, has been since we could order, and my ticket hasn't gotten a response yet. Meanwhile other people have gotten their cubes. This is really frustrating.
@Crab Tree: The Keys are not ready yet. The cubes are shipping without them
Question did anyone get their wicked keys with their order? Oddly enough its one of those things I don't ever recall seeing anything about all this time i've kept up with the project. Also I'm so happy it looks like my cube shall appear today :)
Anyone who has gotten their Black Cube already and wants to work together to figure out the secrets should come join us on the Cypher Unlimited Discord's Invisible Sun secrets channel: http://discord.gg/WQYRWhn
Good news Demithyle!
My cube arrived today - gotta wait for the Shadow World to fall aside so I can really get into it!!
