      I've had issues with payment. Funds are in account, kickstarter attempted to take the payment and it was showing in my pending transactions - today, the money has gone back into my available balance and the transatction has dissappeared...

    2. Dave Woods [Owner of the Daffy Duck] on May 19, 2016

      Patrick, I too had issues. When you log in there should be a bar across the top of the page that allows to to fix any issues. If that is not showing, it will be worth contacting Kickstarter asap. Their response time is fairly good and they should be able to see if there is an issue with the system.

      It will also be worth contacting your card provider to find out if there is a block on the card. This can be common, especially if this is your first Kickstarter.

      My card hasn't been charged either. Do we not pay until the pledge manager goes live or something?

      Congratulations guys, it sure will be a long wait, but it's going to definitely be worth it. I didn't really understand what the campaign mode is aiming to be, but it would be great if it could be something D&D style in a sense that one can create new adventures with given tools.

      It would also be nice if there could be a Demon's Souls expansion of some sort. I'd definitely go for it too, just as the normal expansions, which I couldn't afford this time, but I'm sure as hell that I'll be getting from your online store.

      One more thing: I called my bank and they said the charge is still in process. Is it something with them or with Kickstarter?

      Praise the sun!

      This is so stupid...I was trying to Sign Up for the forum, but the stupid security question is always failing. No matter what I answer. What exactly is this damned twitter account called? Or what name of a creator of Steamforged should I fill in? I'm tired of trying over and over again...

      Let's hope they haven't stretched themselves a bit too far for this one. :)
      Praise the sun indeed.
      Now I'm off to find some loaded dice with which to win at this game ... ;)

    9. Trex on May 17, 2016

      @BoredomandCameras, Same as with warren, you should be able to give the rest of your information when they send out the pledge manager. I would think it will be a little while because of the amount of backers on this project.

    10. Trex on May 17, 2016

      @Warren Howarth, if I'm not mistaken, you can adjust your pledge when they send out the pledge manager. That way you can specify where you want all your funds to go to which expansions you want. Hope that helps.

      Warren Howarth on May 17, 2016

      can we increase our pledge still, or is it too late? I was thinking I wanted to add Darkroot expansion as well. I assume it (including the models) will be available in stores anyways?

    12. BoredomAndCameras on May 17, 2016

      When will we place our address for this pledge?

    13. Ray Flynn on May 17, 2016

      I have been away for a while and wasn't able to adjust my pledge for add-ons.

      Can you still do this? Is it too late?

    16. Matthew Snead on May 17, 2016

      so they will send us a manager link to explain what add-ons we wanted when the time comes?

      Sjut Brethauer on May 17, 2016

      Question: as a last minute backer, I just pledged for the game, not for the bosses - will it be possible to get additional add-ons by upping my pledge during the pledge manager phase?

      Thank you so much for this wonderful kickstarter, about 8 hours ago I had reconstructive knee surgery and that free 200k worth of stretch goals made my day. :)

    26. Keanu Jones on May 17, 2016

      \[T]/ *PRAISE THE SUN* and of course, Steamforged games for unlocking those final stretch goals, I was a little sad thinking that we weren't gunna make those last two summon NPC's in time but heard the uplifting news that we'd get them for free :) This was the best money raising campaign i've ever seen for anything, Thank you for the experience SFG! Also just wanna throw out there this was the first time i've used kickstarter, very proud to support a quality board game.

    27. Zach Stoddard (razumzhiro) on May 17, 2016

      Huzzah! Thanks so much, looking forward to the day far from this day that your box shows up at my door. :D

      Waiting for the release is my new reason to not turn hollow, it was an epic, genrous, campaign with nice philosophy (retailer friendly, completing the summon pack, no exclusive crap)
      Praise the Sun, and praise you, Steamforged Games \[T]/

      The few add-ons that will be available at retail only... Will that include online sites like Amazon? There is no board game store in my area.

      Is it too late to use the pledge manager to increase my pledge to 130 for the Dark Root + Mats?

      i want to thank you guys for the effort kept in this KS its been really cool to be a part of this, and tbh i hope more KS in the future are run like this, nothing but pure enthusiasm from the crew...cheers lads.

    35. Dragoncat on May 16, 2016

      Grats on the campaign! Looks like my activity feed on KS is gonna get a lot quieter! :P Anyways, looking forward to seeing things develop!

      Oh! And praise the sun!

      Fantastic campaign guys, I've been eagerly checking my inbox for the last four days. You have been very generous with stretch goals. I've not played the computer game, but i'm very excited to see this project realised. I hope that production runs smoothly for you. :)

    37. Randall Silver on May 16, 2016

      Congrats guys. I know a ton of sh*t was thrown your way because of - admittedly - some poor decisions, but I for one am very much looking forward to next year. Thanks for unlocking the entire summoned set for us too. Not fooling me, Solaire was a part of that one from the start, but I'm still happy about it ;-) I'm never buying Vordt though

    38. Bob Sheridan on May 16, 2016

      I would've been overjoyed at getting just a board game based on my favourite video game series but you guys have gone above and beyond. Stretch goals aplenty, unlocking those last few for us as way of thanks, making a figurine of Sif a possibility, listening to our feedback. My inbox is going to be far less exciting without a constant stream of sweet goodies being promised. Thank you so much and good luck with the rest of the project!

      I must say that you guys have made a very generous gesture in unlocking goals that we the backers didn't deserve.

      It is very much appreciated.

      @OldSnake they'll send an email out / do an update to announce when Pledge Manager opens [usually a month or two after a kickstarter finishes]

      Where can I manage the add-ons I payed for, it said when the campaign is over I would be able to clarify which ones I want ?
