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)

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!

ba463a7649fc3a6a78bfbc7fd4256e46_origina

 

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

      Overview The 1000 page Hardcover Series by Jason Brubaker has finally come to it's epic conclusion. Now is your chance to collect all six hardcover books at a massive discount! All six books are first printing. The series will NOT be reprinted in this form again. Once they run out-of-stock, these collector books will be out-of-print. There will only be 2000 to 2500 copies of the complete series available. Hi, I'm Jason Brubaker and this is my new COMPLETE comic called Sithrah.
      I've worked as a professional Storyboard Artist, Animator and Visual Development Artist in Hollywood for 20 years on movies like Blade, Pitch Black, and the Kung Fu Panda Trilogy. In 2015 I quit my coveted and cushy job at Dreamworks Animation to pursue self-publishing my own graphic novels and I've been doing it ever since. My first graphic novel series is called reMIND and it won a few awards. 
      Sithrah 5 - 176 pages
      Sithrah 6 - 208 pages 
      Sithrah is a project very close to my heart. It is a journey about "the Leap of Faith" of a little girl who travels in and out of the spirit world to try to find her missing father. It is heavily inspired by my love for Miyazaki's movies but with a western worldview. 
      For this final campaign, I am printing the last 2 books in the series. The artwork is complete and pretty much ready for the printer. The last 2 books contain a total of 380 full color pages.
      Best of all, the final book is not scheduled to be released until the end of 2020 and so only backers will be able to read the full story without having to wait for the release date. If this campaign does really well and we sell out of copies, you will be the ONLY PEOPLE who will have copies of Sithrah 5 and 6. 

      The only reason I am able to print these high quality books is because of you. You guys have come through for each campaign and made it possible for my crazy stories to get published. You are my financiers, friends, editors, collaborators, inspiration, motivation, mentors and marketing partners. I could not have done any of this without you. You have changed and blessed my life in so many ways on this 5 year journey to complete Sithrah and I cannot thank you enough for helping me get these books made and onto coffee tables around the world.

      50% off of my entire back catalogue.
      Indiegogo exclusive! I am slashing the prices on all my old books for this campaign. This will be the cheapest price that you will be able to purchase Sithrah or reMIND. That means that you can get the entire Sithrah 6-book hardcover set for as low as $99. 
      Get Sithrah 6 a YEAR before anyone else!
      The release dates for each book is spaced out by a year for retailer orders and Amazon orders. That means that only you will be able to read the final Sithrah book a year and a half before it's release date and 6 months early for Sithrah 5.
      And if we sell all of the print run in this campaign then it means that you will be the ONLY ones who have a copy and I not release it in stores or on Amazon. Why would I limit the print run? Because the previous books only had a print run of 2500 copies and in order to print more copies of Sithrah 5 & 6, I would also have to reprint Sithrah 4, 3 and 2. And since I don't have that kind of money laying around I will not be reprinting those older books again.
      Win Exclusive Gifts
      You are my marketing experts! I need your help in spreading the word to all your friends and family and in return I will give you exclusive gifts and rewards. Watch the video below to see just how easy it will be to get something unique from this campaign like a sticker, art print or original inked page from the books.
      VIDEO
      Book Specs.
      Sithrah 1: Kingdom of the Air -  96 pages
      Sithrah 2: Propositions - 160 pages
      Sithrah 3: The Symbol - 188 pages
      Sithrah 4: The Deep - 176 pages
      Sithrah 5: Light City - 176 pages (NEW)
       Sithrah 6: The End - 208 pages (NEW)
      Only 500 copies of the new books have a signed and a numbered collectors bookplate.

      Art Contest - Get Your Art Printed in the Book!
      Just like my past publications, I want to include some guest art in the back of the printed books. And so… ART CONTEST!!! Submit your art while the campaign is active to get a chance at getting it published in the gallery of Sithrah: Book 5 or 6. Send me your amazing artistic version of the Sithrah characters to be printed in the book... FOREVER! If you make it into the book, you will be credited with your art. 

      The page dimensions are 6.75 inches (wide) x 10.5 inches (tall). Please make sure all art is 300dpi when scanned. The deadline for submission is the end of the campaign. Please send all submissions to CoffeeTableComics@gmail.com for consideration. I'll pick the final winner(s) for the book. :)
      Add-Ons
      I will be offering Add-ons when you take the survey after the campaign is finished. You will then have the option to add single books to your order as well as copies of reMIND and other books of mine at a discounted price. Because there are already so many books and options with this campaign I decided to keep the Add-Ons separate. But not to worry, you will have the option of adding things to your order prior to shipping.
      Timeframe
      The books are pretty much ready to go to the printer. I'll be preparing the files in InDesign while the campaign is active. The moment the campaign is finished I will deliver the files to the printer. The printing schedule will be about 2 months and so you will get your books before Christmas. International orders might take a little longer. 
      Why so Much Money?
      I've been making beautiful hardcover graphic novels for 10 years now. Sithrah: Books 1 - 4have already been printed with high quality cloth bindings, foil stamped covers and thick delicious paper. Yes, I said delicious. 
      To wrap up this series, I am trying to print the final two books at the same time. It usually costs about $12,000 to $15,000 to print just one book like this, and not only am I printing two books, I plan to make a collectors slipcase as well. The shipping costs have been anywhere between $8000 to $30,000 on my past campings and so that is why my funding goal is $45,000. If I don't reach this goal then you will be refunded and the books will not go to print. But I am confident that we can easily make this happen.
      Win Inked Pages and Prints!

      I'm a backer of the previous 4 books, and have also backed for these two books.

      Hello All, 
       
      Came across this looks interesting so thought I would leave it here
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oraclesights/oracle-sights-handheld-projection-devices-for-tabl?ref=email
       
      I've been running games for 20+ years and I can hand wave AOE or mark it out with dice etc, this just looks like it would be fun and satisfying to see the full fireball effect in living color so to speak.

      About
       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!
