Forge of Foes – Finalizing BackerKit Orders
7 months ago – Fri, May 12, 2023 at 07:14:06 AM

As of today, 93 percent of you selected your rewards and submitted your Forge of Foes BackerKit survey! Thank you!

For those remaining, you must submit your Forge of Foes BackerKit survey to receive your rewards!

BackerKit regularly emails reminders about the survey. If you’re not seeing them, please check your trash or junk folders. If you still can’t find them, email [email protected] with your email address and we’ll send it to you.

For those who completed your survey, we’ll be finalizing orders and charging your credit cards for any remaining balance due on Friday, May 19.

Once you complete your survey, you can download all digital rewards except for the Forge of Foes PDF itself, which we’re still working on.

Expect the Forge of Foes PDF at the end of June and physical book shipments between September and December, 2023.

We'll keep you updated as we have more specific dates and details.

Thank you very much for your support!

Forge of Foes BackerKit Surveys sent!
8 months ago – Mon, Apr 24, 2023 at 02:40:26 PM

All Forge of Foes BackerKit surveys have been sent!

Please check your inbox, your junk email folder, or anywhere else your email might show up for your BackerKit notification.

You can also access your BackerKit survey here:

Even if you’re not getting any additional add-ons, you must fill out your BackerKit survey to get your products!

Once you fill out your BackerKit survey and submit it, you'll get immediate access to download the electronic versions of your pledges and add-ons, except for Forge of Foes (which we're still working on).

We expect to lock down completed surveys in two weeks. You’ll get a 24-hour warning before we do so. So fill out and submit your survey and you’ll be all set.

Once we’ve finished all work on the Forge of Foes PDF, probably in a couple of months, we’ll send an email with information on how to download it.

Then, later this year, we’ll send out physical books to those backing physical rewards.

Thank you so much for your support!

Forge of Foes Backerkit Surveys Coming Soon!
8 months ago – Mon, Apr 17, 2023 at 01:19:02 PM

We’ve received the funding from Kickstarter and are preparing to send out the BackerKit surveys!

Please keep an eye out for BackerKit surveys! This is the only way you can receive your rewards for this Kickstarter!

The BackerKit surveys will let you lock in your order, pay for shipping of physical orders, and add any further add-ons you might have missed during the Kickstarter campaign. This week, we’ll be sending out test surveys to a handful of randomly selected backers. Assuming things go smoothly with that, we’ll send the remaining Backerkit surveys to all backers. Again, you must fill out this survey to receive your rewards.

About a week after the survey goes out, those of you who backed digital rewards (not including Forge of Foes) will receive emails from BackerKit with links to either directly download your PDF or add it to your DriveThruRPG library.

When the PDF of Forge of Foes is finished (in two or three months) we’ll send out another BackerKit email with the links for the PDF of Forge of Foes to all backers who backed it.

Later this year, when we have physical copies of Forge of Foes back from the printer, we’ll send out physical orders, including Forge of Foes and any other physical books you backed. We’re sending them all at once to minimize shipping costs for you.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. Thank you very much!

We Did It! Next Steps for Forge of Foes
8 months ago – Fri, Mar 31, 2023 at 02:17:24 PM

Thanks to you we just finished an outstanding campaign for Forge of Foes! 

We’re hard at work sending out art orders, revising chapters, and getting the layout locked in. We can’t wait to get this book in your hands.

What Happens Next

First, the most important thing to note:

All products for this Kickstarter will come through BackerKit. 

Please keep an eye out for a BackerKit email to fill out your BackerKit survey in three to four weeks.

The Delivery Timeline

In about three weeks the funding for the Kickstarter comes to us. In the meantime, we’ll prepare the Backerkit survey where you lock in your orders, add any add-ons, and pay the shipping price for physical books, including Forge of Foes and the other Lazy DM books if they’re part of your pledge or add-ons.

We’ll test the survey for a few days to make sure it's working as intended and then send out the BackerKit Survey to all backers. This should be late April to early May.

The BackerKit survey will be open for a couple of weeks to let everyone make their selections. At that point, probably mid May, we’ll begin locking orders and sending out digital products for everything except Forge of Foes (which we’ll still be working on).

Please note that all physical books will be shipped together when Forge of Foes is printed and ready. This saves you paying shipping twice. We expect this to happen later this year. At that point, we’ll ask you to confirm your address when we’re close to shipping the book.

We’ll send future updates as we get new news and to let you know about each part of the process as it occurs.

Thank you all once again for your outstanding support. This book couldn’t have happened without you.
