RDI5 is at the Manufacturer!
It's been a while, but with Gen Con coming up we've been throwing everything into trying to meet deadlines. Now that we have some breathing room, how about an update!
The exciting news this week:
- The BackerKit Lockdown Date is August 1st!
- Gen Con Pickup is still up in the air.
- SlugCrew has new swag coming!
- Color Proofs of RDI5+ are in, and they are BEAUTIFUL!
BackerKit Lockdown is August 1st
IF YOU HAVE MOVED PLEASE GO UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS HERE.
We are happily on schedule to hit our mailing deadline. Please help us and make sure you have all of your information correctly entered so we don't end up losing anyone among the masses! The deadline to update your address is August 1st. After that we'll all have to do it the hard way.
It's also important to note, that the last day to modify, upgrade or add to your pledge rewards is August 1st. We need to get final counts to Campaign Coins soon, so if you plan to pick up any of the metal coin sets, make sure you add them NOW instead of later.
Gen Con Pickup
It's still up in the air on whether or not pickup for rewards will be available at Gen Con. We'll keep you updated as we get further into manufacturing.
SlugCrew Season 3 Rewards are Awesome!
Earlier this week we announced the SlugCrew Season 3 rewards on our blog. Seeing as how many of you will soon be proud owners of the start of a RDI collection, and others already are, you might want to think about joining up!
SlugCrew is our international band of volunteers who run demos and events for Red Dragon Inn at their friendly local game stores and conventions. By running events, SlugCrew members accrue points and earn fabulous rewards! These rewards come in two sets, the Minor Rewards and the Major Rewards.
The Minor Reward is earned by running only a handful of demos. Four brand new promo cards delivered to you as a thank you for sharing the RDI Love!
However, for the truly awesome SlugCrew Members out there, we have whole character decks! The Season 3 SlugCrew Major Reward is our tomb raiding goblin archaeologist Keet. He is slated for release at Gen Con 2016, but SlugCrew Members who really put in the time can get him now(ish).
To learn more about the rewards as well as the program, head right on over here.
All of the Proofing
Yesterday, you may have noticed our Tweet about RDI5 et al. taking over Jeff's dining room table. All of the Allies (Wrench, Halden and Zariah) character decks passed with flying colors. We are still waiting on samples of Zariah's friends (Scrappy, Bandit and Amber) as well as Wrench's Wrenches though. RDI5 also did very well, we just needed to saturate the colors on Sera a bit more. The sneaky ninja was blending in to the background a bit too well!
For those who don't know, this is the final step before we actually move into full production. This is the last opportunity to tweak the colors, check the spelling, and make sure all the cards are present.
Enough talking! On to the pictures!
