PREPARE FOR PRINTING!

Greetings, everybody!


I'm happy to report that enough backers have filled out their surveys that I can safely place the manufacturing orders! I'm going to lock orders next Friday, January 22nd, and after that cards will be charged for shipping! If you haven't filled out your survey yet, please do so by then- anyone that misses that deadline will have to pay their shipping on a case-by-case basis. But we'll figure it out!


If you're just about to move, don't worry- you'll still be able to change your address up until shipping begins. Just please don't move into or out of the US during that window. :P


I'm really excited to finally get these cards into your hands (and mine), and I thank you for being patient- I've learned that splitting manufacturing between US and international manufacturers, along with charging shipping separately through BackerKit, adds a bunch of time to the process. I'll have a much more accurate timeline for Series 2!


Here's a sneak-peek of the deck boxes, as a little treat!

What do you think? Are they fancy enough?

Alright, talk to you again soon!


Come say hi in the Discord server, if you like!

If that includes you, please reach out so we can get you sorted!

HOLIDAY MIRACLE: DIGITAL DECK HAS ARRIVED!
9 months ago – Thu, Dec 24, 2020 at 11:29:51 PM

HOLIDAY GREETINGS TO YOU!

I'm workin' over the holidays to get as many of these digital rewards out to you as possible!


I just pulled the trigger on the DUNGENERATOR Series 1 Digital Deck (all of the room cards in .png format, for use with virtual tabletops) and the DUNGENERATOR Series 1 Print and Play (all of the room cards formatted nicely for a color printer and 8.5x11" paper)!

You should be getting an email from BackerKit with a link to your downloads!


If you have any issues with these files, please let me know! I want these puppies to be as lovely and useful as possible for you.


WHAT'S NEXT?

- Laser-printer-friendly DUNGENERATOR Series 1 PnP

- Instructions card for PnP versions

- Color battlemaps, formatted to 1" squares

- Laser-printer-friendly black and white 1" battlemaps

- Digital Token pack 1

- Digital Token pack 2

- Digital Token pack 3

- Digital DUNGENERATOR Series 2!

- GOBLINFINITE goblin generator!

- The Banana Suit.


WHAT SHOULD I DO IN THE MEANTIME?

PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR SURVEYS!

I can't send files to the printers until I get enough surveys back to confirm manufacturing numbers for the two manufacturers, and there's still a substantial chunk of unreturned surveys out there. 

Please make sure to check your spam folders for messages from BackerKit and fill those out as soon as you can!


Say Hi in the Discord!

The DUNGENERATORS Discord is where I'll be asking for ideas for the digital rewards still-to-be-made (token packs, Series 2, etc.), but it's also nice to have folks hang out and bug me. 


Here's the link:

See you soon, and have wonderful holidays!

EXPECT SURVEYS SOON!
9 months ago – Mon, Dec 14, 2020 at 12:58:09 AM

Greetings!

I wanted to post an update and let you know about the DUNGENERATOR's progress!


I GUESS EVERYTHING TAKES A WHILE, HUH

With the scale of the project several times what I expected, I've had a couple of unexpected delays:

  • I had to wait 2 weeks (!) for the Kickstarter funds to hit my account so that I could afford to pay BackerKit their cut (so that they could send out surveys and charge shipping). Good news there: BackerKit has been paid, and the first surveys should already be arriving!
  • BackerKit recommends I send 5% of the surveys out before sending the rest, to make sure nothing's gone wrong. I'm pretty sure I set everything up correctly, so I'm guessing all surveys will be sent this week!
  • Both manufacturers are in a holiday crunch. This will hopefully not affect the manufacturing time, but it'll likely affect the fulfillment time for the EU manufacturer.
  • USPS is experiencing a huge surge. This is going to delay shipping. I don't know how much exactly, but I'll keep you up to date!
  • I had to self-isolate for 2 weeks for COVID. I don't have anything fun to say about this, but I'm okay!

HOW TO MAKE IT GO FASTER

  • Please check your email inbox and send those surveys back as soon as possible! Once I get the surveys, I can figure out how many decks each manufacturer needs to make and manufacturing can begin!

THE GOOD NEWS

  • Digital rewards are on track to be in your hands in December! 
  • I've taken this time to whip up some custom icons and make some tweaks to the cards:
Dead End
Entrance
Secret Passage
Stairs
Treasure

(They will be much smaller on the cards, of course...)


The Discord is where I'll collect ideas for the Series 2 Digital Deck, Token Packs, and Banana Suit.

Okay, that's all for now- see you again soon!

QUICK UPDATE: BACKERKIT, LATE PLEDGES, SORTING DUCK
10 months ago – Tue, Nov 24, 2020 at 11:30:20 PM

Greetings, everyone!


Just wanted to send out a quick update:

  • BackerKit surveys are set up and ready to be sent! 
  • ...But I need to wait on funds to pay BackerKit so that they'll send them out :-/
  • On that note, you should be getting notices from Kickstarter as they collect your pledge funds! Check your email if you don't see a notice on your payment card- they'll have you update your payment method and fix it.
  • It could take up to 2 weeks for Kickstarter to finish collecting funds. (This is so everyone has a chance to fix their payment info if need be.)
  • I've set up a Pre-order Storefront with BackerKit, so if you know anyone that regrets missing out on the campaign, point them here:

Our Discord server just got an upgrade: The Sorting Duck!


You enter a small chamber, furnished only with a rickety chair.

You sit down. 

Wordlessly, a golem made of potatoes and iron clunks from the shadows and places a duck upon your head. 

A metal tube extends from the ceiling. 

"Do not be afraid," echoes a voice down the tube.  "The Sorting Duck is quite professional and knowledgeable. We just need to do this for the Manifest. Tax purposes and all that." 

The Duck examines you closely...


The Sorting Duck lets everyone pick a species and vocation for themselves while they hang out in the Discord! 


Test it out:
