Dear Backers,

What an exhilarating start to the year we've had at Studio Woe! It brings me immense joy to share with you that all components for our project have completed manufacturing and have safely arrived at our studio. We're now gearing up for the final assembly phase. This meticulous process is expected to take about 1-2 months, after which we'll be all set to begin shipping across North America. The finish line is in sight, and it's all thanks to your unwavering support.

In the realm of playtesting, our adventures continue to evolve and surprise us. We've been rigorously testing the stat blocks for the villain bookmarks. The Mummy Lord, for instance, showed a promising performance in our playtests, while the hag is currently undergoing a revamp to enhance her damage output. Our goal? To ensure each battle is not just a challenge, but an engaging and memorable experience for you. The enthusiasm and feedback we've received from these sessions have been both invaluable and exhilarating. We can hardly wait to unveil these villains to you!

A gentle reminder for those who haven't yet completed their BackerKit surveys – please do so at your earliest convenience. Accurate shipping addresses are crucial for a smooth delivery process, and currently, 10% of you wonderful backers need to complete this step. Let's make sure no one misses out!

Wrapping up, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to each one of you. Your support is the backbone of Studio Woe, and it's your enthusiasm that fuels our creative fires. I'm eagerly looking forward to the moment when your dice are in your hands, ready to roll new stories and adventures.

Stay tuned, stay excited, and once again, thank you for being a pivotal part of this journey.

Warm regards, Brent

Manufacturing Milestone Reached - An Update from Baron Smellybones
4 months ago – Sat, Dec 09, 2023 at 04:47:16 PM

Esteemed Backers,

I extend my warmest regards and a flourish of excitement from the hallowed halls of Studio Woe. Today marks a significant milestone for our grand endeavor. The crafting of our dice, those little ambassadors of aroma, is complete!

However, I must beseech your patience for a short spell longer. The tins and packaging, those essential escorts for our fragrant artifacts, are still in the final phases of assembly. Thus, we anticipate a brief respite—mere months—before we can begin the grand dispatch.

In the spirit of meticulousness, today we embark on a trial, dispatching reward surveys to an initial coterie of backers. Should this process unfurl without hitch or hindrance, we shall posthaste proceed to issue surveys to all remaining patrons on the morrow.

Rejoice, for we are ahead of the times announced, and your rewards may find their way to you sooner than foretold.

Moreover, we return triumphant from PAX Unplugged, where our olfactory wonders from the previous campaign were met with resounding applause. Your fervor and enthusiasm were mirrored in the hearts of many a connoisseur there, and it fills me with anticipation to deliver these treasures into your hands.

With a heart buoyant with gratitude, I thank you. Your support is the cornerstone of this aromatic adventure.

Yours in gratitude,

Baron Smellybones

TLDR: The dice have been manufactured and delivered to Studio Woe, but we will still need a couple months before we can ship them. Reward surveys will go out to a few backers today as a test, if that goes smoothly the remainder will go out tomorrow. We just got back from PAX Unplugged and it was Awesome! -Brent

Thank you + Next Steps
5 months ago – Sun, Nov 19, 2023 at 02:37:41 PM

Thank you for making our project a reality! A few things need to happen before we can kick off production and fulfillment.

Here's a quick rundown:

First,  Kickstarter  needs to transfer over the funds so we have the money to make the rewards, This just completed this weekend, we are in the final processing phase of this and expect to be unblocked in a day or 2.

Second, we have to find out where we need to ship them. We’ll send out a BackerKit survey to collect this information. It will be coming soon!

We’ll give you a heads-up before we send the survey so that you can watch for it. You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to answer your survey. The invitation email contains a link to your personal survey. It is important to submit your responses as quickly as you can since we need this information to process your rewards.

If you need to change your survey responses, purchase add-on items, or update your shipping information, you can click the link in your survey email again or request your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page. (This page will only start working after we send the surveys out.)

Answering your survey help us get your rewards out to you faster. BackerKit helps us save lots of time by streamlining the survey process, automating data organization, and providing us with pledge management software to make it easy to process your pledge reward shipments.

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your crowdfunding account, the BackerKit survey link is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact me at [email protected].

Again, thanks for all your support. We can’t wait to send you your dice.

Just 4 hours left and another Stretch Goal unlocked!
6 months ago – Tue, Oct 31, 2023 at 05:46:21 PM

We are getting right to the very end of this campaign and we just unlocked another stretch goal! The quests of the King of Halloween will now be a free digital download for all backers at the "Complete Bundle" tier or higher, along with all other unlocked stretch goals! Up next is a Kingly Treasure! The Majestic Loot that players can obtain by taking down this fearsome foe! 

The current favorite to win the title of "King of Halloween" is the Pumpkin King, but it is really close, and with 3 ways for each person to vote (by stating a preference in the Discord Channel, by posting a story about the candidate in story-snippets, or creating fan art and posting it in the Discord's art channel) any villain could still win! 

Thank you so much for your support, and a truly excellent community! Hope to see you on Discord!
