Surveys, Updates, & Illimat Events

Posted by Twogether Studios, LLC (Creator)

Hello Backers & Friends!

Thank you for your patience as we took some time off after our Kickstarter ended for a little r&r. We’re back and as promised, here is an update about how we’ve decided to manage pledges and communication cadence.

We’ll Be Using A Pledge Manager System 

 As you may recall, we weren't going to do this. However, thanks to a backer recommendation we found a service that will allow us to keep it as simple as possible while allowing you to add on to your pledge. We’re working with the pledge manager service After The Crowd on setting up and validating the surveys and aim to send them out to you next Thursday.

Communication Cadence 

 In our last update we asked you to participate in a poll about how frequently you wanted updates. About 62% said once a month and 28% said twice a month. We decided to do a monthly update post on the first thursday of each month starting December 1st. We’ll also continue to try out the Kickstarter live stream, and have scheduled a Q&A for that day. Subscribe here. We plan on providing additional updates on timely items when needed, such as next week when we send out backer surveys.

Are There Any Illimat Events Coming Up? 

If you live near one of our friendly Illimat Outposts you can drop by and play a playtest version of Illimat. Many of these are at game cafes who welcome you to bring a friend and share a glass of cheer for an unplugged moment of joy. Consult this lovely map to find an outpost location where you live or maybe where you're traveling during the holidays.

Keith Baker is at AcadeCon in Dayton, Ohio this weekend demoing our RPG Phoenix Dawn Command as well as finding folks who may want to playtest Illimat and try some of the variant rules from Variants & Apocrypha. Other pop-up opportunities may come up in Portland, OR, Washington, DC, and LA before the year is up so follow us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook to stay in the loop!

We’ll post next week when we’re sending out surveys!

Thank you!

Jenn & Keith
