Kickstarter Update 32

QUOTE: John Wick Presents (published 2016-04-05, Tuesday)
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/johnwickpresents/7th-sea-second-edition/posts/1540438

Hello backers!

Just a quick note today to announce that Backerkit surveys are going live within the hour. Please keep an eye on your inbox for the full survey that will let you select your sourcebooks and add-ons, upgrade your pledge, and give us all the information we need to get your books to you later this year.

Everyone must fill out the Backerkit survey to get your books, even if you filled out a previous survey to get your PDFs. This is the survey that really counts!

A few more announcements about Backerkit: 

Add-ons and Upgrades 

If you want to add additional items to your order or upgrade your pledge, Backerkit will allow you to add extra funds to your order. The whole system is fairly self-explanatory, but let us know if you encounter any problems or issues.

Please remember that this may be your last chance to get items that will have a limited print run: decks of cards, Hero points, and the Pirate Edition limited print run. We might have more of those items in the future, but we can’t guarantee it!

Backerkit Preorders 

Now that Backerkit is up, we’re open for preorders! Please check out the link below for our 7th Sea Preorder page:

https://7th-sea-second-edition.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders

Please spread the word about the preorders! If we can raise an additional $33,187 in preorders, we’ll unlock the full Explorer’s Society through DTRPG! 

Lockdown and Charge Dates 

Both backers and preorders have until May 15th to change their order. At that time, we’ll lock down everyone’s orders so that we have consistent numbers for production. We’ll leave the preorder page open until at least June 1st, but we might leave it open longer if we think we can make it work to keep taking orders.

If you add on any funds to your order (or preorder), we’ll charge those additional funds on June 1st. Please let us know if you want us to charge your account earlier than that date.

Thanks!

I added an extra $460 to upgrade and cover extra shipping. So, we are under $33k for sure. And probably even more has been added already.

Does anybody know how long the 7th sea novels are going to be?
If they are quite long I'd rather have them in paper, if not I could just go with the PDF.

Not sure even John is sure about novel length at the moment.

Thanks, Salamanca.
Should we assume then the novels would be around 200 pages? Is that reasonable?
In the mock up they kind of look about that (?).

God I hope they are longer than that!  340 pages is pretty much the minumum size for a commercially distributed novel.  A 200-page novel might be cool in a retro-pulp way, but if the plan is to get these into book stores (and why not?!), they are going to need to be meatier than that.  But we'll see.

Yeah, I noticed the novels didn't even have a release schedule for the first year.

I suspect Daughters of Fate is somewhat written as John started that one back in...1999?  But that could mean anything.

From John Wick:
"200 pages, trade paperback. We'll have them all out before October of next year. Roughly one every 6 months. :D"

Wow!  Those are...short!  By comparison, the last series of trade paperbacks I read (Mark Chadbourne's Swords of Albion) average a bit over 300 pages.

Geez!  This is gonna be a long wait now that my pre-order is in.  I realize they gotta know how many decks of cards to print and everything, but 6 months.  Damn.

I'm okay with it. Gives me time to read everything 1e!

Yes, read the early stuff, enjoy the small bits of story that sneak in there. Fall in love with it so I am not the only one crying when my favorite bits get changed.

Is it possible to select add-ons above your pledge amount?

Yes, you can add as many addons as you can afford. You just pay the difference to what you already pledged. Sadly, you cannot change your Kickstarted "pledged tier" if you missed the "Pirate" tier with the goody bag during the Kickstarter run.

Actually you can change your pledge tier. I did. I backed at pirate and am now at all the books pirate. There is a tiny link that you can click that lets you upgrade your pledge. Uses the word Upgrade.
