I meant to go in a double my pledge for two sets, but alas, I was preoccupied getting my 35 year service award at work . . . With my three granddaughters in-tow! ::D:

I think when it comes to painting the figures, I'll be painting the Golden to look like my GP/BC mix. Everyone that sees her make the same mistake of thinking she's a Golden, only bigger. ::D:

Hi all Russ here!

This is a super exciting Pupdate for me…

In the previous pupdate, I explained the tooling and revision process where I was commenting on the minis as they got set up for production. Well, since then our manufacturing partners have tooled up and sent the first plastic prototypes through!

I am super pleased and very happy to be able to share with you these first images of the minis in the material and quality that you will receive! I am sure you would agree that these look absolutely amazing! They capture all the character and detail I hoped we would see on the minis.

The only significant change now is that these are in a neutral grey, the default for when miniatures are being checked for detail quality. The final versions will be in a different colour, but other than this, what you’re seeing is what you’re getting!

Furthermore we have settled all of the packaging designs and the tooling on the boxes is beginning as well. I am waiting on a built box to share this, but I assure you, the box looks really great and evokes the upbeat atmosphere of the project really well. I hope to reveal this soon, and I am really pleased to be at this stage before Christmas- it puts us in a great place for delivery next year.

Until next time, enjoy the pics and may your dice always roll high!

We’ll be sending out a ‘final notice’ via our pledge manager CrowdOx tomorrow, Wednesday February 13th. The final notice will be sent out as an email to all backers and will mark the final 48 hours to change your addresses. Once these 48 hours have passed your address will be locked in, and that’s the address your pledge will be shipped to.

We anticipate fulfilment to our wonderful backers to be starting between early March and the middle of April, so please make sure your address is accurate to the address you’ll be at around this time. As we get closer to this time we’ll be updating with more accurate dates, likely broken down by the different regions that fulfilment will be happening in. If you’re unsure of exactly where you’ll be, we recommend you enter an address that you know won’t be changing such as a family, friend, or workplace.

Pupdate 26: The Incredible Journey Posted by Russ Charles (Creator)

 

Hi all, Russ here!

We have a heap to get through with this update… so let’s get started!

Shipping Update

We have a few different hubs which will be sending out your doggies. From this point forward we’ll be breaking down each region based on the hubs which will be sending out pledges to our wonderful backers. All backers will be receiving tracking information via email!

Australia, Asia, UK, EU & RoW – Sent by the UK Hub

We anticipate pledges to the above regions to begin fulfilment toward the tail end of the week commencing March 18th and the start of the week commencing March 25th, with fulfilment completed by the end of this month.

USA – Sent by the US Hub

Fulfilment on pledges to backers in the US are starting today, which is super exciting! Keep your eyes peeled on your inboxes for dispatch notifications. Fulfilment should be completed by the end of this month.

Canada – Sent by the Canadian Hub

We anticipate pledges to Canada to begin fulfilment toward the tail end of the week commencing March 18th and the start of the week commencing March 25th, with fulfilment completed by the end of this month.

A Thank You and an Announcement

Throughout the process of making this project a reality I’ve had a huge amount of support from Steamforged Games Ltd (SFG). SFG have been my employer for a long time now, and they’ve been amazingly supportive in bringing something I personally wanted to do to our tabletops!

SFG have helped with customer support, project management, production, graphic design and the distribution of Dungeons and Doggies and I truly couldn’t be happier with the result! Alongside all of this, SFG will also be bringing the product to retail! Assuming all goes to plan *crosses any limb that can be crossed* all backers are set to receive their pledges ahead of our initial estimation… which is fantastic!

I’m really looking forward to continuing this partnership with future projects, we’re all friends here so I guess I can leave you all with a sneak peak as to what one of those might be!

I hope you’ll all join me in thanking all the folks at SFG for their hard work with this project, I simply couldn’t have done it without them!

Content Sneak Peeks!

While I’m in the habit of showing shiny things off let’s look at some samples from the pdf rulebook! The rulebook is still in layout, so some of the look may change slightly between now and when the pdf is put online. The pdf is likely to go up in the next few weeks, rest assured you’ll be the first to know when it’s ready!

This is a work in progress sample of one of many pages in the rule book! Isn’t it beautiful! This is a work in progress sample of one of many pages in the rule book! Isn’t it beautiful!
I mean, what more is there to say… LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS! I mean, what more is there to say… LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS!

Thanks, as always, for your support with this project! We’re so close to the end now, and what a journey it’s been!

Russ

I really reallly hope these look as good in person.

 

 

The SFG connection makes me anxious after some of their recent shenanigans.

I completely missed this so I am hoping they will be available individually on a website later.

Same. I got all of them, but I really only wanted the big doggies. And I might have waited for retail, but there was that mastif bard that was just too cute!

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.
