Shipping Begins!
about 1 month ago – Fri, Nov 05, 2021 at 02:12:27 AM

Hello brigands!

Exciting news! Our order has arrived at the warehouse, we've QA'ed the books for quality, and we are officially starting to send out our first shipments! Barring any hiccups, our domestic backers should start seeing their books arrive in the next two weeks, with international backers receiving packages soon after. 

On the Print-on-Demand front, we've received the proofs from DriveThruRPG and have started sending out links to our Print-on-Demand backers. If you backed at the Print-on-Demand level, you'll receive a total of 4 e-mails from DriveThruRPG, each with a link for you to order a softcover black-and-white version, a hardcover black-and-white, a hardcover color, or softcover color option. 

For the digital edition, we plan to send out the final digital versions via DriveThruRPG soon. We also plan to send out the Codex PDF containing various stretch goals and additional material in mid-November, also via DriveThruRPG.

We apologize for any delay, and look forward to getting *Brinkwood* into your hands as soon as possible!

Hi All! 

Just a quick heads up that we'll be locking addresses and starting shipping on 10/15, so please finalize your address on BackerKit if you haven't already.

We're in the home stretch now!

Order Locks and v 10.2!
2 months ago – Sat, Oct 02, 2021 at 10:53:10 AM

Hello Brigands!

As you might have noticed, we've gone through and locked orders and charged cards via BackerKit as scheduled. Some of you may noticed that your orders are still unlocked, if you only ordered digital rewards and physical copies of Refuge and Despair. You'll continue to receive all digital releases via BackerKit, but we decided to hold off on locking orders until we are ready to deliver Refuge and Despair.

Speaking of new versions, version 10.2 has been released, and is now available for download via BackerKit! This will be our final "print" version, though errata may follow as necessary. You can view our changelog for this release here.

Finally, we are headed to print! According to our printer, current estimate for our books to arrive at our distribution warehouse is October 15th, barring any delays. We'll keep you updated as we move towards distribution!

Physical Proof Updates!

Hello brigands!

Thank you again for your support as we move towards the finish line. We have several major updates to share with you today!

Physical Proofing and Production

First up, the physical proof of the core manual has arrived! We're checking it over now, but barring any serious issues, we should be moving into full production soon.

Please excuse the amateur quality of this pictures. I'm not much of a photographer, but hopefully these at least whet your appetite.

Refuge and Despair

Thank you again to everyone who participated in our ranked choice poll for Refuge and Despair. The results are in: the majority voted to ship Refuge and Despair at a later date rather than delay the other physical goods. So, we'll be moving forward with full production of the core book, art book, and map rewards as soon as possible. All existing pre-orders of Refuge and Despair will remain on our books until we can deliver them. 

Change Log

Finally, we've released a "patch" for the core book, almanac, and character sheets you can now download from BackerKit. Also, in the interest of bridging the information gap between our Kickstarter and BackerKit backers, we've rolled out a changelog. This changelog will have some more detailed information on any updates we make to PDFs. Keep in mind that all major announcements will also be distributed via Kickstarter update.
