Gloom of Kilforth Day 16 - Playmat add-ons, GoK Stock, and six figures!!

Posted by Tristan Hall (Creator)

Hi peeps!

We did it - six figures!! Woo hoo!!!! (I have to be careful with the number of question marks here as Terry Pratchett rightly pointed out the correlation between the excessive use of exclamation marks and insanity...)

£102,821 pledged 1028% funded 1,838 backers 15 days to go!!

Thank you so much for your support, and to those of you who are upping your pledges for the super groovy playmats, and thank you also to all of our new backers who have been flocking in steadily over the last couple of weeks. You are most welcome here, one and all, and we cannot wait to immerse you in the dark embrace of the Shadows of Kilforth!

Who wants a Playmat?

There's been lots of discussion about these and yes, we can confirm that the Shadows of Kilforth playmats are fully compatible with Gloom of Kilforth too. 

Want to add an optional playmat or an add-on to your pledge? It's dead easy!

Simply hit Modify your pledge, and increase your pledge by the amount you'd like. e.g. if you'd like the World Playmat, just add £25 to your total pledge. You will still be able to do this in the pledge manager later too, but if you'd like to help us hit those extra stretch goals you can do this during the campaign ahead of time by pledging for them now.

Gloom of Kilforth Expansion Stock Is Low

I'd mentioned previously that we'd try to make any Gloom of Kilforth expansion stock we have left over available to you guys in the pledge manager, BUT we are now running out fast. We only have a limited number of bundles remaining for all three expansions: Dark Gloom, Pimp My Gloom, and Gloom of Kilforth: Encounters. If you don't want to miss out you can still use the link below to order them, but for the avoidance of doubt...

There is a possibility that there will be no Gloom of Kilforth expansions remaining by the time we launch the Shadows of Kilforth pledge manager.  Whilst stocks last you can still order the Gloom of Kilforth expansions at this link and they will be shipped out to you within the next few weeks:

https://kilforth.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

When they're gone, they're gone. Note that these are the expansions for Gloom of Kilforth. They are not to be confused with the Shadows of Kilforth expansions (Dark Shadows, Pimp My Shadows, and Shadows of Kilforth: Adventures) which are new and unique to this Shadows of Kilforth Kickstarter campaign.

Gloom of Kilforth has finally started landing in the hands of our backers (Woo hoo!) so there's a wee bit of admin to see that all through smoothly and then it will be back to business as usual here. Keep those torches burning in the meantime, continue sharing and spreading the word about Shadows of Kilforth - it's you guys who are making this happen after all - keep those comments rolling in, and fear not the machinations of the Ancients, we shall hold fast against the rising tides of gloom, and together we shall prevail!

Cheers,


Tristan xx


PS. Here are some Location teasers to tide you over...

Not only gorgeously illustrated, some of the new Location cards also have brand new special abilities too...

      Did GOK sell out already? I clicked the link and I think i might have missed the bus. Or is there a different site i should be going to?
      thanks

      Morten Monrad Pedersen, :D (thanks for your support sir - it means a lot).
      Realarete, they look beautiful on the table! :)

    3. Morten Monrad Pedersen on

      @Tristan, "never put the game away" - I like that idea :-)

    4. Realarete on

      Loving these location cards ... going to be great in Tarot size :-)

    5. Tristan Hall 5-time creator on

      Morten Monrad Pedersen , haha, okay, I get you - you might have to find your own tubes my friend. Or just never put the game away. ;)
      Mira Barbian, yes, the Just Gloom of Kilforth link contains all the original stretch goals - I've updated the description now, thanks. :)

      is the "just gloom of kilforth" pledge for 57 (using the link provided) also with the stretch goals (like the "just shadows of kilforth" was)? It doesn´t say that explicitly.

    7. Morten Monrad Pedersen on

      Just to be clear: My concern is not about issues with shipping the mats, it's with me having something to store them in afterwards :-) and if they were shipped in tubes I could use those. That's just me being lazy and not wanting to go out and get my own storage :-)

    8. Tristan Hall 5-time creator on

      Morten Monrad Pedersen, I believe for the shipping of 1066 the playmats were folded into the packing boxes (not game boxes) without issue.
      Rolling Solo, Morten Monrad Pedersen, cheers guys! :)

    9. Morten Monrad Pedersen on

      @Rolling Solo, +1 to that. I don't think I've ever bought such mats for a game, but this time I'm mightily tempted.

    10. Rolling Solo on

      Love the neoprene mats add-on. Artwork is so nice!

    11. Morten Monrad Pedersen on

      @Tristan, OK, thanks. How will they be shipped? If in a cardboard tube, I could just use that for storage.

    12. Tristan Hall 5-time creator on

      Joost Nauw, “No word on the infamous couch??” The art is on its way, will share when it’s ready. :)
      Michael Fenton Superbacker, “Any chance of a package deal for all of the playmats (World map + 4 player mats) for all of the completionists out there?” if you buy all 5 playmats you will be receiving £50 off RRP! We will have a think about if we can go any lower than that in the pledge manager though.
      Peter Hofland, no worries!
      Morten Monrad Pedersen, you’ll need your own storage solutions for the playmats.
      Stephen O'Leary Superbacker, Rod MacDonald, “Is there any chance just to get pimp my GOK” We don’t have enough stock left for this I’m afraid, we only have the expansion bundles remaining.
      Szymon Szydełko, pretty sure you’re right! :D

      Thx. for having the mat available in the pledge manager.

    16. Morten Monrad Pedersen on

      How are the mats stored?

      Is it possible to add just the pimp my gloom pack to an existing order? I already backed at game + encounters level, so don't need to add on the grouped set of all 3 optionals.

      Is there any chance just to get pimp my GOK

      Pretty sure the title is supposed to say Shadows, not Gloom.

      Cheers guys! :D

      Yep they look fantastic indeed.

    22. Chris Vo-Sundli on

      These locations are awesome! Adds a cool bit of details and mechanics to the map itself!

      I hope you're keeping enough boxes for replacements, since it is far from being delivered to everybody
