Now that exclusives are in, we can begin shipping out rewards! To begin with, only rewards that include decks from the first series will be shipping out, but that will officially mark the beginning of Kickstarter fulfillment! Yay!

We anticipate beginning fulfillment mid-January. As we get pieces in, we’ll ship out the rewards that we can! We’re so excited to get started.

Exclusives are here!

Production Progress

Decks

Levels 6, 7, 8, and 9 have gone into production! Our current estimate for their arrival is sometime in February. We can’t wait to see them!

Illusions, Conditions, Townsfolk, Spellcraft, and Humblewood animations are almost done and should be going into the production phase soon.

Tarot Update

As many of you have already probably noticed through our progress updates, the tarot deck is taking the longest to animate. The artist is still working hard to get the minor arcana completed and our current estimate is the end of February! 

The writing set to accompany the tarot decks is nearly done! The booklet is going through its final editing passes as we speak and we're eager to share the text in the new year.

Books

Our current estimated window for the physical books is March/April 2021.

Projects We Love: POLYHEDRAL

A collection of interviews with TTRPG developers.

POLYHEDRAL is an interview book, wherein the interviewer has spoken to different people who work in the Tabletop Roleplaying Game (TTRPG) industry. Whether they have made their own independent system or made supplements to existing ones, work primarily as a freelancer or own their own company, all people interviewed have been given time to talk about themselves, their story and their work.

Check it out!


Support Holiday Hours

Please anticipate a slower response time from December 24th until the new year. Though an agent will be available Monday-Friday over the holidays (with the exception of Canadian statutory holidays), the hours will be reduced. We’ll get back to you as quickly as we can!
