      Hi, I didn't receive the free PDF for The Nereus Incident.
      Is this the place to ask for it ?

      Good; and thank you very much for the quick response.

    4. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      Yes, the other print rewards will ship along with Siren's Call.

      We've partnered with Studio 2 for fulfillment. Once the print books arrive at their warehouse, they will match up the various rewards for each backer and get them sent out. We'll have more information on that in our August update.

      I most likely have just missed the answer to this question... I pledged for the whole game line in print, and wonder if all books will be sent together with ”Siren’s call”?

      Wow that was quick! Downloaded - thanks very much. No idea what happened to the first one...

    7. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Mark Buckley - No problem. You should receive a Kickstarter message shortly with the links to the PDFs.

      I just noticed that I don't seem to have received a link for the PDF. I've checked all mail so it's not in a junk/spam folder. Can you resend?

    9. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @David - It's possible. Just sent us a message and we'll arrange the upgrade through PayPal.

    10. David South on

      Is it still possible to upgrade my pledge that just included the Siren's Call print book to now include both Siren's Call and the Shadows Over Sol prints? I haven't for sure decided I want to yet, but I would love to know if it is possible.

    11. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      Thank you so much! We're glad to hear you like the game!

    12. Oliver Korpilla on

      I've spent the last few days browsing through the synopsis of all Shadows Over Sol products, doing select reading, especially of the core book, supplement, and Siren's Call. This is amazing quality, well-researched, engaging writing, intriguing science fiction, and I am very pleased with the whole line.

      I hope the Patreon will keep yielding more of these goodies!

    13. Mary McMurtrey

      Woohoo! This game looks awesome! Glad to see it did so well!

    14. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      Thank you! :)

      Congratulations :-)

      @Jt Crawford - Thank you! We're super excited!

    17. Jt Crawford

      Congrats on your highest campaign to date!!!

      @Tab Creations -Well then, in that case, I see no reason not to back this at a higher level, looking forward to playing the final product! :)

    19. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Silveressa - Those are some really beautiful deckplans! Thanks! You've given us another artist to contact.

    20. Missing avatar

      Silveressa on

      Thanks for the prompt reply and that's understandable, my hope is your quality level will roughly be on Part with Ryan Wolf's Future Armada series?

    21. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Silveressa - While we have high art standards, we have yet to contract a specific artist for the deckplans. As such, at the moment we don't have an accurate way to demonstrate their artistic style or final quality. Sorry.

      Is there a way we can get preview of the deckplans quality? (Sadly the quality of such maps often varies wildly between publishers.)

    23. David South on

      Perfect! I can't wait until I have this book in my hands! Great job @Tab Creations!

    24. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Mary McMurtrey - We'll send you a message answering your question shortly.

      @David South - We make a point to playtest every scenario. The Siren's Call playtest involved feedback from several different groups, each with varying experience with the system, from complete newbies to seasoned veterans. We also try to get feedback from GMs new to the system when we can, but the truth is that recruiting completely new GMs for playtesting is sometimes difficult. In practice we often get the same GMs volunteering to provide playtesting feedback time and again.

    25. David South on

      @Tab Creations, I want to say thank you for your amazing work on this product and making it available (unedited) to backers even before the campaign ended. It shows you trust your backers, and for that I wish this campaign to make as much money as possible. The campaign looks great from what I have read, I really look forward to seeing all of your hard work and playtesting.

      Speaking of playtesting, I ask that you all make ensure that all parts the campaign as well as the prequel scenario have been playtested as much as possible, with players new to the system and those familiar to the system (and maybe even new GMs to the system). I am sure you all will do a wonderful job!

    26. Mary McMurtrey

      And the final stretch goal has fallen! Can't wait to get these books! Any more thought on if the core books will be sent earlier than the actual KS book? As always, for me, the sooner the better, but I can wait if that's what makes sense for you guys financially.

    27. Robert Davis

      We got the patreon and the $7,000 stretch goals. This is excellent news! The ARC Project finally comes to life :)

    28. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      During the last few days we discussed the possibility of tacking on one final stretch goal for the campaign, but ultimately decided not to. The reason is that we're very serious about making the game great and delivering it to backers on time. You guys have had some great ideas for stretch goals in these commends, and as much as we would love to do one last big stretch goal, we feel that we don't want to over commit and bog ourselves down.

      Anyway, thank you everyone for your support! We love you guys! Expect another campaign update this evening.

    29. Jt Crawford

      Are there any final stretch goals?

    30. David South on

      Over $7000! New scenario! Wooot

    31. David South on

      Only 1 more patron to go before we all get a prelude adventure!

    32. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Sascha - We won't have a formal pledge manager, but if anyone is interested in upgrading their pledge or selecting add-ons after the funding period ends, we will be more than happy to handle that through PayPal.

    33. Missing avatar

      Sascha Schewe

      Quick question: Will there be a pledge manager that allows us to upgrade our pledge level? I'm interested in a full print pledge, but it's a busy KS month.

    34. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Robert Davis - People who have already purchased the GM Screen will automatically have access to the PDF of the updated version. We're also going to look into making a cheap print version of the extra insert available.

    35. Robert Davis

      Quick question about the GM Screen Insert for the new Colony Building system in the Product Upgrade SG. For those of us that have already purchased the print version of the GM Screen from DriveThru, will we have to purchase again to get the extra sheet?

    36. Robert Davis

      @Mary McMurtrey - you can always get the Shadows Over Sol: Quick-Start for free at DriveThru. It's a great way to get a feel for the card resolution mechanic and it includes a pretty good introductory adventure as well. It should keep you ticking along until you get the rest of the PDFs in the product line after the funds have been collected.

    37. Mary McMurtrey

      Oh, I'm not worried. I saw that you guys have fulfilled previous Kickstarters on time or early. I'm just really interested to get the game and give a try. Never played an RPG that doesn't use dice so I want to give it a try ASAP. I'm in the US so I'll (not-so) patiently wait until the end of the KS campaign and see what you guys end up deciding.

    38. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      Rewards to backers outside the US are likely to be shipped in a single box, because international shipping is really quite expensive.

      For backers inside the US, the truth is that we really haven't set firm plans yet. We usually run the numbers at the end of the Kickstarter, once we know the final backer total. At the very least, products updated as part of the "Product Upgrades" stretch goal are going to ship after they are updated.

      Additionally, all existing PDF rewards will be sent out once payments process (usually two weeks after the Kickstarter ends). If it makes you feel any better, this is our sixth Kickstarter and we have yet to miss a deadline delivering rewards.

    39. Mary McMurtrey

      I just backed for all the things (PRINT game line) and I'm wondering if that will all ship together or if the older stuff will ship just after the money is deposited from KS and the new book will ship later?

    40. David South on

      A set of 6 pregens specifically for Siren's Call would be another good stretch goal, as an additional PDF perhaps.

    41. Jt Crawford

      Yay! More art!! 😍

    42. Jt Crawford


    43. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Jt Crawford - Sorry about the slow reply. We [the collaborators on this project] had a meeting tonight finalizing the remaining stretch goals, and I didn't want to reply until everything was confirmed.

      In our projects we tend to be very conservative in regards to planning stretch goals. The reason is that we're very serious about making great games and delivering them to backers on time.

      I'm happy to say that every Kickstarter we've ran has delivered its rewards on time and as promised. But to keep that track record we need to avoid the pitfall of over-commitment, so we always double-check our plans.

      I guess I'm being long-winded about it, but yes, there will be upcoming stretch goals after the doubled art budget! The next stretch goal will be for an additional scenario to be included in the Siren's Call sourcebook. Expect it to be added to the campaign page later tonight.

    44. Jt Crawford

      Are there SG after the art budget increase?

    45. Claus Bo Christensen

      If anyone has questions about being a Patreon supporter of Tab Creations, please don’t hesitate to ask.
      Sure, it is a different platform than Kickstarter, but you only pay for the products Tab Creations releases.
      And I believe the minimum is 4$.
      I understand that it’s difficult to believe you get a premium product for 4$, but you actually do.
      And sorry if this seems like a sales pitch :-)

    46. Tab Creations LLC 6-time creator on

      @Zharden - Thanks for letting us know and for your support!

      @Jt Crawford & Davis South - We'll have something to announce soon.

    47. David South on

      @ Jt Crawford, me too!

      I would love to see stretchgoals of a starmap of the Alpha Centauri system, or maybe an additional optional portion of the Siren's Call campaign.

    48. Jt Crawford

      I'm excited to see what other stretch goals that are planned!

    49. Zharden on

      Hello Everyone! Just giving some feedback to the creator that I learned about you from advertisement on RPG.NET. Otherwise, didn't know you existed! Looks like a very interesting project.
