I sent out a LOT of updates over the last few days. But this one is the best.
Thank you. We broke all my records that really matter this campaign: most backers (608 vs 600), most funding ($40,108!).
The trajectory of the campaign is something I’ll mull over and study a lot once I get my ducks in a row on producing five books, five token sheets, and a card deck all at once.
The relatively boring pledge curve, up to the campaign re-orientation, was a forceful lesson in what the TFT fans want in their product mix, at least (a) for Kickstarters, and (b) for Kickstarters being run simultaneously with a hugely successful OTHER Kickstarter from SJG!
In any case: Here’s the key bits of the schedule I’ll be trying to hit for you guys:
- Kickstarter Ends June 8
- Backerkit Opens June 25
- Backerkit Ends July 8
- Distribute PDFs End July
- Files to Printer mid-August
- Ship International end of September
- Final Arrival end of October
The addition of the card decks and fifth adventure really pushed my schedule to the far side of “October,” and I’ll see where, if anywhere, I can accelerate to have more slack. But I need to give the artists time to do their thing properly, and David needs time to write Vampire Hunter Belladonna. Life may happen…but I’ll try and keep it tight, and you know you’ll be kept well informed.
