100k beyond our goal! Thank you!

 

Thank you all for being part of this campaign. Your energy in the comments was incredible and you made it such a pleasure to be a part of.

I (Louis) plan to spend this weekend away from a computer with my wife & dogs who might have forgotten what I look like! Perhaps I will try to catch up on some sleep too! However we will all be back next week and following up on any more questions you have about the game.

The pledge manager should be up next week (probably Wednesday) and we will continue to post more content throughout the following months.

I hope you enjoyed meeting some of our incredible team in our final live video, they have been fantastic at developing the game and creating content for this KS. We will all be celebrating with a Venetian themed party (Dress up being essential) which we will share pictures from in due course.

Thank you also to Vesperon Games for selling us this phenomenal IP. David Esbri is a fantastic person with incredible ideas and I hope we do him proud in taking this game from strength to strength.

Moving forward there will be a weekly round up of activity and we cant wait to go through the beta with you and delve deeper into this awesome world.

We only just missed out on the 130k stretch goal so as announced in the final live video this will be included in all pledges of £60 and more. Detailed MDF wells you can use for scenery or objectives :) Below is one but there are 3 different variants in the set.

Until next time my fellow Venetians

The Carnevale Backerkit is live!

Surveys have all been sent out, so check your inboxes if you pledged during the Kickstarter campaign.

If you aren't a backer but want to get involved, you'll be able to join the rest of the community by late pledging in the Backerkit pre-order store!

As usual, I can't remember what I pledged for.

 

I'm sure I wanted 2 minis from the Doctors faction, but I can only find one I like now.

Backerkit Info

 
Good morning Venetians!

I have two bits of information for you this morning:

  • Backerkit surveys and pre-orders close at the END OF OCTOBER
  • Any late pledges WILL get any applicable stretch goals!
0ce3a0d4769598eaf408f57ed035d94d_origina

 

 Let's talk about them a little more for a sec.


Backerkit will be closing at the end of October. That means you have until October 31st to fill out your surveys, add extra add-ons, or to late pledge.
Cards will not be charged until after that date, so make sure you have funds in the correct places at that point.
We will let you all know when the surveys are going to close and will post frequent reminders to that fact. We'll also give you all a heads up before cards are charged.

Now, stretch goals! We had a little talk about whether late pledges should receive stretch goals. We'd previously thought that they'd only be for Kickstarter backers, because it's you all that helped to breathe new life into Carnevale!
Then we got to thinking that we're still improving the game right now. The more support we get, the better we can make the game, and that includes help from people that missed out during the campaign. We had a lot of people messaging us that weren't able to secure funds in time for the Kickstarter campaign, or only found it after it ended but were still just as enthusiastic as the rest of us, and it didn't seem right to penalise those people!
So that's why we've decided that the stretch goals will be available for everyone! If you're an early backer or a late pledger, simply put whatever you want in your cart - we'll add everything up and pop in the correct stretch goals when we fulfil the orders.

Speaking of stretch goals, we can't end an update without a cool painted miniature, right? So how about a stretch goal Strigoi?

We've got a 2 month delay because


We're thrilled to announce today possibly the biggest news to Carnevale since the Kickstarter launched. New York Times Bestselling author and industry legend Gav Thorpe has signed on to write the Carnevale book!

Some of you reading are like us and should be squealing with joy at this news. For others that aren't already rooting through their dog-eared copies of old White Dwarf magazines... well I'll let Gav describe himself. From his website:

"Gav Thorpe has a long history with the Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 universes, and has written many novels for the same. He is a New York Times best-selling author with his novella The Lion, and winner of the 2017 David Gemmell Legend Award for his novel Warbeast. His epic swords-and-sandals fantasy Empire of the Blood is available from Angry Robot. Gav has worked on numerous tabletop and video games as designer, writer and world creation consultant. He has also delivered writing workshops and appeared on numerous discussion panels at literature and genre events. He lives near Nottingham with his partner Kez and son Sammy."


(he's going to be doing world building/background not rules)

Fulfilment of the kickstarter is just about to start, with a retail release scheduled for October 26th

Share this post

this is beginning to fulfil

 

"That takes me onto fulfilment. We have begun to ship orders! Those not containing the 2 player box have begun to leave us today. We are aiming to have EVERYTHING shipped in the next 2 weeks. Please then allow 2 weeks for arrival. If you don't have your pledge 4 Friday updates from now then send us a message and we can look into its whereabouts. Please be patient in the mean time as replying to 1000 people asking if their pledge has shipped will only slow us down when we want to be packing and posting instead."

 

The pledges are going to be filling our daily post from here on! 

 

but there was a problem with the 2 player starter boxes that about half the backers will need

 

"The frustrating thing is that our retail boxes got massively delayed. By a month, they wont be here with us until the 16th of November. We were expecting delivery this past week as a very latest estimate from our order date. A break down in communications at the supplier lead to mass confusion and them only starting the work on our projected delivery date. They have promised to push this date as far forward as possible but they cannot guarantee any advance on it."

 

so they offered a choice of waiting for that (if this matters to you read your updates and tell them) or going with a white generic box with a custom sticker available far sooner (as the supplier had it in stock) which, since this is for me not resale I was happy enough with

 

and lo, the white box arrived even sooner than the supplier promised

 

The box is a beast. That label is A4 size!

a2fb0add52311e4930bcb8c8ccb3c712_origina

 

so I'm now waiting to see when it arrives (and if I get mine before Beagle gets his, cats before dogs after all)

Oh and they pushed the retail release back to 30th November to make sure most (all hopefully) of the backers stuff is out the door before retail gets it, even those that wait for the retail box

this better not happen, I came up with the single best idea in the Kickstarter campaign and they owe me.....even if they did ignore my idea.

Well it arrived early (clearly the courier believes in cats before dogs), and what I've looked at so far looks good

 

the 2 player starter (white oversized box), a bunch of KS stretch goal minis to give a taste of all the factions, a dead shark monster as resin terrain,  the venetian well from their MDF terrain range, four sets of  acrylic tokens

 

and a nice surprise a copy of the current dropzone commander rule book (stickered to inform you that a new edition is coming next year), good advertising for them and a good way to get rid of all the stock they picked up when they bought out Hawk wargames

 

the starter set has the gondolier mini (great to add a Venetian atmosphere), a bunch of card buildings and map times, the rule book,  deck of (spell?) cards, quick reference rules,  unit cards for the starter factions, and, of course the minis

 

assuming it's all there (I haven't looked in detail), I'm really pleased with it

Been wondering why mine hasn't arrived yet when I only pledged for 4 or 5 minis.

 

Turns out I may never have actually gotten around to filling in the pledge manager, I certainly don't have a confirmation e-mail or anything ::(:

 

I'll give it a couple of weeks and then e-mail them, see which one of us screwed up.

@Orlando_the_Technicoloured you're the first backer who got tracking details as far as I'm aware. Still waiting on my pledge, I went for the 'All in' level and I expect they may be going out last

      About
      Cerberus Studios Logo Who are we?
      Hello and welcome to our Kickstarter.
      We are a small UK miniature design studio born out of a love for all things fantasy and the spark of an idea.  We wanted to create a world with a wealth of characters and storylines that immerse and captivate you... so for the last year we have been working on bringing the first of a large range of miniatures/characters to life. 
      We have been completely self funded to get to this point and will aim to move forward with the money raised to deliver our next selection of characters and beasts. It is our intention, with your help, to use any raised funds towards 3D printing, casting, packaging and the distribution of this range.
      The profits will go towards the realisation of a strong character cast, each developing into their own unique part in our story and becoming miniatures in their own right.
      If the kickstarter goes beyond our expectations we will expand, creating new miniatures, game designs, and employ more artists to help realise our world and bring it to you.
      Our World and Characters
      As with any good story you need heroes and villains and that's exactly where we started.
      All of these characters form the introductory model range to our story and miniature line up.
      Character Cast From left to right:
      The Veiled Emissary Lazarus The Kyrios The Slaver The Miniatures:
      Each of our cast are conceptualised and developed, blending backgrounds and storylines to link our characters. Using a talented team of artists, the artwork and 3D renders are created to build the foundation of the miniature we present to you.
      Each of our designs is prototyped using 3D print technology, allowing us to have highly detailed moulds for the resin miniatures that we hope you will enjoy.
      3D Printed example - The Veiled Emissary
      The Completed Renders & Miniatures for you

      Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls! Gamers of all ages!  
      Going down? Frog God Games is proud to present Rappan Athuk, THE DUNGEON OF GRAVES! The Granddaddy of all Megadungeons is back for Fifth Edition! 
      Mock-up hardcover with actual cover design. Characters will test their mettle against puzzles, tricks, and traps a-plenty; test their grit and steel against monsters and foes lurking around every corner; and at the end of it all awaits the Big Daddy himself, Orcus. These are truly adventures worth winning. 
      — “I once killed a man, just to watch him die” – a Man in Black 
      — “Hold my goblet” – Orcus
       
      Interior mockup with actual pages from Rappan Athuk for Fifth Edition. Rappan Athuk is back for Fifth Edition. Not just back though, it is reloaded with all kinds of new extras including:
      All new, full color artwork Three new levels of the Dungeon itself   Three new Wilderness locations, including a three-level castle  A new three-level satellite dungeon  A sea-cave of terrible shark-men! A Kickstarter exclusive level released from the Vault of Tsathogga!  Updated color maps, available as separate PSD files for online play, are included for all levels Scores of NPCs and Monsters, dozens of Magic Items and Spells, and the legendary Dung Monster await you!  Art comparison between 2012 and new edition.   Weighing in at over 500 pages, Rappan Athuk for Fifth Edition is an instant classic in the Mega-Dungeon genre, featuring 100+ keyed and color mapped areas with over 56 dungeon levels, several satellite dungeons (almost 20 additional levels!), the village of Zelkor's Ferry, 22 wilderness areas (ways to die before you ever reach the dungeon) and seemingly countless groups of bandits and monsters that prey on those fortunate enough to escape the halls and caves of Rappan Athuk with treasure in hand!
      With decades of playtesting and use in campaigns across the globe, the Dungeon of Graves can be a foundation of any campaign or eviscerated into pieces and blended into any campaign!
      Map comparison between the two editions.  
      Once upon a time, there was an idea—an idea formulated by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson in 1974 and published in a little paperback book called Underworld Adventures. The idea was simple: it is a lot of fun to go into a dungeon and kill evil monsters. Why is the dungeon there? No one knows. Why do the monsters usually fight rather than talk? We aren’t really sure. Why are there 16 trolls in a cave with a jug of alchemy? No one cares. What do all the monsters eat? We don’t know that either (although “adventurer” probably tops the list). And we don’t have to know these things. This isn’t an ecology experiment, it’s a dungeon—the quintessential setting for pure swords and sorcery adventuring.  
      This adventure pays homage to that original idea. True, there are opportunities for role playing, but most of this module is dedicated to “roll playing.” Hopefully, while exploring the halls of Rappan Athuk, you will recall the thrill of discovery, the terror in your heart when you fought your first skeleton, the joy of rolling your first natural 20, and the despair you felt when that 1 came up for your poison save. This module, Rappan Athuk—The Dungeon of Graves, is nothing more and nothing less than a good, old–fashioned, First Edition dungeon crawl updated for the 5th Edition Roleplaying Game. Very difficult, it should strike fear into the hearts of the most stalwart adventurers. It offers an abundance of traps, tricks, and monsters. We hope that you find this module as fun and exciting as those thousands of players who have ventured into (and not as often out of) the endless caverns and mazes of Rappan Athuk—The Dungeon of Graves. Rappan Athuk is a difficult dungeon. Even the upper dungeon levels should not be attempted by a party of less than six mid-level characters.
      Only truly veteran players should attempt this dungeon with lower level characters. In light of this, we added the satellite dungeons, including Bill's very first work (from 1977), Tunnels of Terror! This 9-area dungeon was used as the introduction to his campaign and led his players to Rappan Athuk through play.

      It looks like quite a good way to get a large number of figures, all rather old-school and not at all expensive.
       
      There is an early-bird add-on of a goblin pack-bearer, which I like the look of.
