Have a question?
@Lee - As per our previous updates, we're only updating once a month. The last update was July 18th. :)
So, no Updates in a month. Can we get some information please?
so whenis backerkit coming or did i miss it?
Was a little too late on the discord invite apparently. I am sure it will come again but I believe I fixed my funding issue with this project so hopefully things don't get further snagged.
There is an option to create a discord link that doesn't expire. Unless you want it to, but you do also have the option to delete any invites. :)
@Matteo - use the link in the comments of the last backer update.
Links are only good for 24 hours:
I'll post one in a moment.
The link doesn’t work.
@Ben, Matteo, and everyone else; I edited the last update to include the Discord link. All backers should see it.
I'll post the Discord Link as a backer-only update.
Me too, Matteo!
Is there an Alessia Discord?
I’d like to read more about the ring of heaven. Let’s hope backerkit funds make it happen.
More often than not with this sort of thing Gm duties falls to me. I run these games at furry cons and expose to a wider audience. Although depending on what Storm Bunny does the next couple of PAX Unplugged cons I may just have material to run later. I mention that gaming convention because I live in Philadelphia and getting to that one in particular is the most easiest and convenient for me.
I truly hope the ring of heaven material makes it in, as it seems like it is very important for a GM to know more about it. Perhaps maybe backerkit funds can help in making that happen.?
As I am going to be running this with starfinder as opposed to 5E I am curious as to the solar system assuming Alessia is a planet with a moon it begs the question of how many suns it has and how many other planets are in it's solar system. Look at our own world. Earth is 1 of 9 planets, those that would denigrate Pluto can sit on a post and rotate, and while we are most familiar with our homeworld we have told tales of the other worlds. I personally reskin parts of Pact Worlds for what I have presented in the past giving the PCs a home base on the moon. Although I take inspiration from Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon more than anything else as well other retro sci-fi for something truly gonzo.
@Chris - Yes. Via BackerKit.
@Lo - We're adding extra pages, not necessarily the Ring of Heaven material, although don't count it out, either.
@Frank - Yes. You're good to go.
Fantastic Update :) Many thanks for adding "Ring of Heaven" for free!!! Awesome news. Proud to be a backer of this campaign. WoA will be the best 5e supplement ever created :) Thumbs up!
So, I've been meaning to ask. I am a KoboldCon Digital + backer. Is that functionally the same as a Dragonsworn Sorcerer backer? It appears so, but we know what happens when we assume things... Just asking because the Dragonsworn level was mentioned in the latest update.
Will we be able to update our pledges? I didn't realize y'all added a print and ship it to us option which I'd love to upgrade to!
Jaye will soon post a new update, but I just wanted to personally Thank you all for backing Alessia!! It has been over 4 years since I first started writing down stuff regarding Alessia and I never imagined I would get to see it come to this stage. So this Kickstarter and everything that has happened during this one month has been a real dream come through for me. For that, Thank you!!! :)
@Michael - it's going to be a bit, but yes! Payment processing takes 10-14 days, sometimes longer, so it's going to be a few more days. Woot!
@Earl Scott - We're using BackerKit. If out response there is excellent, I'll discuss a small expansion with Jere.
Conglratulations to you as this project. Deserves every penny. Now starts the process of getting the money and hopefully getting the ball rolling on finalizing the main book for dissemination. Subsequent materials henceforth I plan on getting in print and PDF as soon as I can afford it.
I was wondering if there was a way you could use BackerKit to take late pledges, or pre-orders, so you get the $1,500-$2,000 needed to make the full 260 page version of the book(sorry for the long sentence!)? I apologize in advance if I'm just showing my ignorance. Thank you for your time and attention.
Congratulations for funding the project.
You guys rock :D
Haha, your YouTube link x)
Yay! Thanks for this awesome campaign Jaye Sonia and Jere Manninen :) These books are going to make 403 amazing people very happy :D
So Cool!!! 😁
Go go go!!!
5 minutes Countdown! Go go go, 22k :D
@Michael - We still have twenty or so minutes. We might actually hit 22k! Regardless, all of you are in for a treat!
If I wasn't sure I'd be overwhelming my bank account I'd pledge more money to this. Ah well we shall see how much gets raised and when it all comes together. As it is I plan on getting the other books in the series as both print and PDF as soon as I can afford it.
@JT - If we can include this, I'll add it via BackerKit.
@Jaye thanks! So how much more and should I add that to my pledge now, what?
I may be crazy but I think we may just reach $22K or get darned close to it when the dust settles. At some point I need together certain manga in trade paperback in prep for this setting.
@JT - So, we CAN set up a premium version of the print on demand file, but that will be more expensive than the basic hardcover. The special edition we're planning for premium backers won't be possible (currently) via PoD. My apologies for not mentioning this earlier.
Any update on the premium hardcover option?
In for what I can afford. I would love to get the pdf bundle, but cash is tight right now.
@Ben. No. You add nothing for shipping. You'll handle that when you order the book itself.
@Lo - I know. The whole campaign has felt both constructive and positive throughout, which has made reaching each of our stretch goals all the more fun. The best part? We've reached some stretch goals that allow us not only to *tell* you about Alessia, but now we can *show* you more of Alessia. It's going to be a wild ride.
I'm super excited about your digital maps Jaye. Hell yeah, now let's hope for "Ring of Heaven" as final stretch goal achievement. 5 hours remaining ... I go crazy if it happens :D That would be a very satisfying ending to this amazing campaign.
Hmm OK so that would be $105,for Dragonsworn Sorcerer. Do I add another $20 for shipping?
@Ben - It does not. You can add a voucher to get it, however. So, you can do the Dragonsworn Sorcerer (which is an awesome deal, tbh) and just grab the hardcover voucher for another $25.
@Lo - I know. I can't wait to share the maps with folks!
@Michael - I'm looking forward to hearing what folks may. And Thundarr!!!
Does the 'Dragonsworn Sorcerer' get the hardback primer from 'The Lorekeeper's Request'?
I'd like to up my pledge, but I don't wanna lose the hardback.
Welcome to Qingshan! Stretch Goal at 21k funding. Please make it happen people, 10 hours left to achieve this awesome book expansion!
Alright I heard about surges here on kickdtarter but this has been the most amazing one I've seen yet. I'm already coming up with a weird campaign idea combining Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, Drakkun, Outlanders and maybe some Thundarr the Barbarian as well.
